A family refers to a collective group of individuals that live together since they have a blood relation or marriage relation, and they carry out tasks for one another. The family communication states the importance of interaction, as well as, subjective feelings that are responsible for detailing the family system (Segrin & Flora, 2011). In this regard, the thesis statement can be framed as, "Whether the effective family communication as emphasized by different authors is significant in the framing of the family relationships or not?"
