Family values, are traditional or cultural – that is, values passed on from generation to generation within families – that pertain to the family’s structure, function, roles, beliefs, attitudes, and ideals.

There are also the moral and ethical principles traditionally upheld and transmitted within a family, as honesty, loyalty, industry, and faith and are traditionally learned or reinforced within a family, such as those of high moral standards and discipline.

This is not just a Christian view either as interpretations of Islamic and Arab culture states that as an indisputable fact in the academic literature the family is regarded as the main foundation of Muslim society and culture; the family structure and nature of the relationship between family members are influenced by the Islamic religion.

Who serves the best example of these values?
