As family is our Primary School, so a good family teaches us good and a bad family teaches us bad. It means a good family makes us good citizens and a bad family makes us bad citizens. Therefore, make your family good.
All happy families resemble one another, but each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.
Family jokes, though rightly cursed by strangers, are the bond that keeps most families alive.
The ideal of the self-sufficient American family is a myth, dangerous because most families, especially affluent families, do in fact make use of a range of services to survive. Families needing one or another kind of help are not morally deficient; most families do need assistance at one time or another.
Family is a great community center where father, mother, children and other communicate with each other and one another. Father, mother and elders and olders are the teachers of family. A good family belongs to good teachers who teach good, to be good politely and properly. Again, a bad family belongs to bad teachers who teach bad where the learners have hardly any scope to be good with politeness and proper methods. So, importance should be given on forming family.

The sin of loving our family more than we love other humans like the sin of loving our family more than we love God seems to be encoded in our very nature
The family is an early expedient and in many ways irrational. If the race had developed a special sexless class to be nurses, pedagogues, and slaves, like the workers among ants and bees, then the family would have been unnecessary. Such a division of labor would doubtless have involved evils of its own, but it would have obviated some drags and vexations proper to the family.
Like plowing, housework makes the ground ready for the germination of family life. The kids will not invite a teacher home if beer cans litter the living room. The family isn't likely to have breakfast together if somebody didn't remember to buy eggs, milk, or muffins. Housework maintains an orderly setting in which family life can flourish.
Like many another romance, the romance of the family turns sour when the money runs out. If we really cared about families, we would not let "born again" patriarchs send up moral abstractions as a smokescreen for the scandal of American family economics.
