Use of family values as a common term in sociological journals[edit]

The term, "family values," as used in countless sociological journals, is anything but political. It's not like "This is what society should be; this is how we should run the government based on what we consider to be family values for the nation." Instead, family values are used to describe the values that people hold in regards to the family structure, function, roles, focus, etc. Plus, this article is too Western-centric. Almost nothing is focused about the family values of non-Western cultures, besides the one sentence at the top paragraph that talks about extended family. As a matter of fact, many non-Western cultures stress the importance of extended family. I am making a placeholder here. In any case, I am going to add my knowledge about Chinese culture and family values WITH scholarly references. 65.24.105.132 (talk) 23:38, 2 September 2014 (UTC)
