Why This Indicator Matters

Children's long-term development and success can greatly depend on the support and care they receive at home from their family. A stable and caring family environment in which all family members care for and appreciate each other is the most beneficial to a child. In addition to meeting the basic needs of food, shelter and clothing, an optimal family environment might include the following qualities: members with unconditional love for each other, parents spending time with their children, parents listening to their children, parents serving as good role models- understanding that children learn from what they see happening and parents who value education. These values are key to creating en environment that is the most conducive to positive outcomes for the child.
