In any given social set up the role played by the family is crucial. The importance of family can’t be undermined. It is the basic ingredient of social structure. The status of this social institution reflects the overall health of the society. If our families are fragmented and broken, our society will face serious consequences. The preposition can be confirmed and validated by looking at the western societies. Western societies are in a state of chaos and disarray because they have failed to keep the family intact. The concept of relation has undergone such a huge change in west that family has almost dissolved. Since family has an important sociological function to perform, such societies express the fault in terms of rise in crime rate. Kashmir, from last few years, is exhibiting strange tendencies; not only are our moral and ethical standards are going down but the crime rate has also shown a consistent increase. The atrocities against the women folk have particularly increased. Our daughters no longer feel as safe outside as they used to, all is not well with the relation with in-laws; women face hardships because they couldn’t fulfill the demands imposed on them. If we observe all these incidents it points towards the weakening of family. The bond within the family member is slackening. A father hardly cares about what his son or daughter is doing, what are their usual preoccupations, and who are having friends with. Mothers fail to fill in the inadequacies that father leave because of their over engagement with the work outside. A mother acts as the first school for his children. But in present time a mother gets little time to share with her child. She is no longer seen to perform those duties which she used to. If our society has to be saved, parents have to seriously do a rethinking over their roles in a family. Our society can no longer afford to turn a blind eye to what is happening around us. Parents have to change if our society has to be saved.
