The beginning:
An Analysis of Sociological Theories on the Family
Part I:
The first argument for the contribution of individual, families, and society can be detailed through the social exchange theory. One way in which the promotion of the health and well being of a society is founded through a process orientated negotiation that does not entail unwarranted conflict.

The second argument for the contribution to the well-being of social, structure is based on Symbolic Interaction. This system details the importance individual contributing factors for change and the constantly evolving norms...
The end:
..... as a tool for social change and unity. By being able to council families on the nature of their individual vales and contributions to the family unit, the overarching structures of societal stereotypes (racism, judgment behaviors, etc.) can deteriorate and provide happiness to their specific needs. While it is important to evaluate and understand how families live within the greater community and institutional structure of society, they can find greater happiness if they are encouraged and counseled to find what best suits their own criterion of health and well-being.
