Family is the basic desire to raise one’s children and to spend time with siblings. It encompasses what is commonly called the maternal and paternal instincts. Satisfaction of this desire produces feelings of parental love, tenderness, and feeling needed.

Frustration of this desire produces feelings of unhappiness. This desire, which binds parent to child, is unrelated to the basic desire for honor, which binds child to parent.

This desire motivates people to value their family – including children, brothers, and sisters – and to be attentive to their family’s needs. It may prod people to support education, coach Little League, or serve as a Boy/Girl Scout leader.
