The European Union views families as a source of economic prosperity, in which member states focus on child well-being, gender equality. When women are economically independent, they will be better able to adjust in the family and balance work and family life.
The family is a dynamic form of human coexistence. These days, people focus more on their carrier because they want to be better situated in the society. The primary needs of the child are not material but it is the love and care from the parents. Family is not the only source of economic prosperity but it is the source of the human prosperity. Children sometimes seem to be the problem but they are also the solution. Life functions in the principle of give and take. Why can human beings not establish peace and love in their relationship? It is because they violate the principle of give and take.
When we look and think differently, we act differently
