A family is a group of people who are related by birth, adoption, marriage, or other shared bond.

Family can include:

  • Mothers and fathers
  • Husbands and wives
  • Children
  • Brothers and sisters
  • Grandparents
  • Aunts and uncles
  • Cousins, nieces, and nephews
  • Sometimes close friends and pets too

Families can change over time. Sometimes we grow closer or further apart from family members.

Take a minute to think about or write down who is in your family.
