Family values are traditional or cultural values (that is, values passed on from generation to generation within families) that pertain to the family’s beliefs, attitudes, and ideals. They are the moral and ethical principles traditionally upheld and transmitted within a family, as honesty, loyalty, industry, and faith. They are values especially of a traditional or conservative kind which are held to promote the sound functioning of the family and to strengthen the fabric of society. "Family values" are values held to be traditionally learned or reinforced within a family, such as those of high moral standards and discipline. This "traditional family" involves a middle-class family with a breadwinner father and a homemaker mother, raising their children.
