    Default The family definition

    Could you please correct my sentence of family definition:


    The family is the unit that may consist of either two parents or a single parent or only a couple and has the function of taking care for its members, providing learning, education, emotional sustenance and economic production and consumption.
    Thank you.

    You can change it and add something of your own, I don't mind.

    Thank you.
