The core of society

Vanda from Brazil thinks that family is the core where values and characters are formed. And she tells us what "family" means to her.

It goes without saying: the family is the core of society. It's the core where values and characters are formed. All of us are aware of it, aren’t we?

As I see it, the relationship between parents and children is the most significant. Although where I come from, a family is much larger, including uncles, aunts, cousins and in-laws.

But I can’t help saying that the harmonious and unconditional love for grandchildren is a deep experience, a valuable exchange of feelings and a sheer joy.
