What is a family?
There are many different types of families. Usually, a family is made up of two or more people, who are related or choose to live together as a family.
How would you describe what a family is?
Every family is different
Every family is different (even the ones that look pretty much the same). There are single parent families, two parent families, families with two dads or two mums, foster families, adopted families and grandparents or other relatives raising children because the parents can't do it themselves.
Grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, cousins and special family friends are all part of a family too. Usually we call family members who don't live in your house extended family.
