Thought for 03.02.11

The most important "stable family" in human history was not a biological nuclear family. There was no room for them in the inn; hence the stable.

The nuclear family is a modern invention, and when I look at the number of families which just aren't coping, I wonder how viable it really is. The 'natural' family is surely the extended family, with lots of uncles and aunts and cousins and granoutiemdparents around to provide help and support when needed.
