The familial scene is one in which human emotions are displayed, and the child's role in this scene is to observe and experience human relations in all their complex aspects. This includes both positive behaviors, such as agreement, compromise, and loyalty and cooperation, as well as negative behaviors, such as disagreement, dispute, and conflict. In a healthy family, family members develop positive behaviors based on mutual respect and cooperation in accordance with responsibilities and roles of parents and children. Children learn about their roles and status in the society through the roles and responsibilities developed in line with basic family functions. Since individuals are born without any specific abilities, they need their families to acquire certain means and resources they need both personally and socially. Therefore, one of the most basic concepts for explaining the family's connection with society is that of gender and related processes.
