INTRODUCTION

Background of the Study

Family system is as old as human life on the earth. Family according to Panasenko (2013) refers to a group of persons, united by ties of marriage, blood, adoption, consisting of single households, interacting and intercommunicating with each other in their respective social roles in creating a common culture.

Family is composed of two adults of different sex (husband and wife or father and mother) and one or more children. Jacobs and Gerson (2004) saw family institution as a social group characterized by common residence, economic co-operation and reproduction.

It includes adults of both sexes, at least two of whom maintain a socially approved sexual relationship and one or more children, owned or adopted by the adults. In the context of this study, family comprises of a husband and wife or wives tied together by marriage.

They live together either as biological or social aspects for the purpose of raising children, caring or training them to fit into the society and replace them tomorrow.

Family has the biological aspect and the social aspect. Its biological aspect is due to the blood link and hereditary characteristics, and the social aspect stems from the family having its own pattern of behaviour that regulates relationship existing between its members, such relations are the ones which the society concerned has approved as right (Nigerian Educational Research and Development Council (NERDC), 2006).

NERDC further stressed that family is made up of two types; nuclear and extended family.
