  Family as a model for the state - Definition, explanation
The family as a model for the organization of the state is a theory in political philosophy.
It either explains the structure of certain kinds of state in terms of the structure of the family (as a model or as a claim about the historical growth of the state), or it attempts to justify certain types of state by appeal to the structure of the family.
In his analysis of the family relationships of father, mother and child, De Bonald related these to the functions of a state: the father is the power, the mother is the minister and the child as subject.

From the perspective of children, the family is a '''family of orientation''': the family serves to locate children socially, and plays a major role in their enculturation and socialization.
From the point of view of the parent(s), the family is a '''family of procreation''' the goal of which is to produce and enculturate and socialize children.
Thus, some speak of the '''bourgeois family''', a family structure arising out of 16th and 17th century European households, in which the center of the family is a marriage between a man and woman, with strictly defined gender roles.

Family support strengthens the ability of a family to keep a child with a disability within the family at home.
Family supports should be: responsive to the needs of the entire family unit, flexible enough to accommodate unique needs, and enabling and empowering for families to make informed decisions.
Because each family is unique, family support cannot be viewed only as services offered by professionals (i.e., respite) or as a single program (i.e., cash subsidy), but rather must be seen as a flexible network of public services plus other supports that is capable of bending to meet individual family needs.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Family
Being the provider of the family, and the superior of the wife both in physical strength and in those mental and moral qualities which are appropriate to the exercise of authority, the husband is naturally the family's head, even "the head of the wife", in the language of St. Paul.
To say that the family is the social unit is not to imply that it is the end to which the individual is a means; for the welfare of the individual is the end both of the family and of the State, as well as of every other social organization.
The family is the basis of civil society, inasmuch as the greater majority of persons ought to spend practically all their lives in its circle, either as subjects or as heads.

 Family Model.   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
The Spanish family has undergone radical transformations throughout this century as a consequence of demographic changes, but also owing to mutations in the socioeconomic and employment structure of society in the system of values.
The principal change, the same as in the mojority of European nations, is that of the transition from the extended family unit representative of rural agrarian societies to a nuclear model, made up of a married couple and children which is more in keeping with urban industrial societies.
The family has been traditionally founded upon, and still is in the mojority of cases, the institution of marriage, which at present is still largely performed according to Catholic rites, although the number of exclusively civil ceremonies has increased within the past few years.

 Family   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
A family is a domestic group of people, or a number of domestic groups, typically affiliated by birth or marriage, or by comparable legal relationships including domestic partnership, adoption, surname and in some cases ownership (as was the case in the Roman Empire).
From the perspective of children, the family is a family of orientation: the family serves to locate children socially, and plays a major role in their enculturation and socialization.
Sociologists distinguish between conjugal families that are relatively independent of the kindreds of the parents and of other families in general, and nuclear families which maintain relatively close ties with their kindreds.

 Explaining the State
The state is then defined as an organization that can inflict sanctions with relatively little risk of disavowal, which amounts to thinking in terms of a "near monopoly" of force.
The Olson model of the state depends on two crucial assumptions: first, that no non- state institution can protect private property against roving bandits; second, that the state, i.e., the sedentary bandit who nearly monopolizes force, will not use its power to reduce popular welfare compared to what it would have been under anarchy.
It is true that no state can rule without the implicit consent of a certain proportion of the population, but this proportion is certainly much less than 100% and quite certainly less than 50%, so that the state necessarily exploits some individuals.
