Author: LV Qing, Zhao Xianghong Uploaded Time: 2017-07-15
The family is not only an important organization in the prevention and resolution of social problems, but also an important base for the cultivation of human capital. Qualities of a worker consist not only of knowledge and skills, but also include interpersonal communication skills, cooperation, team spirit, leadership abilities and innovation. If the acquired knowledge and skills mainly rely on schooling, then the cultivation of other abilities cannot be separated from the family.
 
Family is an important source of welfare. There is no substitute for the function of family. Supporting families is an important strategy to respond to changes in the family in Western countries, and protection of the family as an important social asset is an important sign of the development-oriented family policy.
 
Due to family changes and problems that have emerged in China, we need to make strategic adjustments and build a new family policy system. This will ensure the economic security of families, support family care, share its responsibilities, prevent and help resolve problems within the family, promote family capacity-building, and meet a wide range of welfare needs.
 
People's needs are met through a variety of channels or multiple systems, including governments, markets, families, communities and social organizations. In order to ensure that social policies play a lasting and effective role, it is necessary to support and promote the cooperation of these different systems. Families, together with other social systems, not only provide benefits to members of communities, but are also structures in which other social systems ultimately play their roles.
We should make new choices emphasizing the importance of the family: structuring society to support the family and invest in children's social environment and institutional systems, playing the functions of government, market community and social organizations, to support and help the family to better fulfill its responsibilities.
