According to functional theory, family is the glue that keeps society together.  It ensures the well-being of the family members in the following three areas:

1)        Basic needs – food, shelter and clothing

2)        Emotional needs – social interaction, happiness, peace and joy, overcoming difficulties.

3)        Physical needs – physical activities, safety, and health issues.

Discuss the adverse effects to family members when the family fails to adequately provide these benefits? Why do some families focus on basic needs and tend to be deficient when it comes to emotional and physical needs?
