By the time you have to bail them out or employ them, most of the things a family can do should already have been done. I wasn't thinking of the family as a safety valve which is also what they can do.Originally Posted by Arthur Brain
Many people in our social safety network did not have the type of family that is most effective at producing happy productive members of society.
A loving responsible father is absolutely essential for this type of family.
But even after children have started their own families, the original family can do many things to get them back on their feet and prevent them from becoming part of the social safety net.
Women and children can be provided for while the father can seek employment nationwide or even worldwide if he has skills. Tying yourself down to one locale is what prevents families from having the best possible job available or even a decent paying job.
