The family is the most fundamental of society's institutions, for it is within the family setting that lifetime behaviors and beliefs are established and values are nurtured best in children, including adolescent behavior; child abuse; child care; condoms and contraception; divorce; responsibility: character; and wisdom. But in America today, the family institution and American culture are under attack from the political, academic and media elite. The information available here highlights important details of the assault on American families and American culture, along with resources that can help turn the tide.

How our society looks at families and the importance it places on them is based in large part on the morals and ethics of our society. The following definitions show the difference between ethics and morality:

Morality: The rightness or wrongness of conduct; that which is. Habits of life or the practices of an individual or culture. What is considered acceptable behavior in a particular society changes over time.
Ethics: The standard, the line, that which ought to be because right and wrong do not change. The principles of conduct governing a person or group of people that do not change.

This means is that a certain behavior could be considered moral because it is accepted by society but still be unethical because it is wrong.
