Educating children is of great importance to the family. It prepares them for the working world that they will one day be entering in to which will determine a great part of their life, and also teaches them of fundamental skills and essential values of society, including the structure of society. Family values are used to integrate children into school, for instance a child will learn what is sociably acceptable with their manners and they way they react to certain situations.

Having fun together through recreational activities and a focus on humor influenced the processes of my own family.
