A dad posted to Twitter a screenshot of what he said was a multiple-choice question from his son’s high school health test.

My son was marked down 5 percent on a high school health test because he chose this "incorrect" definition of family.
10:10 PM - 7 Jul 2015



The question asked for a definition of “family.” His son chose “a collection of related-by-blood individuals living together.”

But that was the wrong answer.

The correct choice? “A collection of individuals who care for and about each other.”
Will Saleton said his son was marked down 5 percent “because he chose this ‘incorrect’ definition of family.”

Some responders to Saleton’s post noted that mothers and fathers aren’t related by blood and that many parents adopt, which would make his son’s choice incorrect anyway. Saleton and others noted that often kids are too young to “care for” adults in a household, which makes the “correct” answer insufficient.

One responder noted that the “correct” answer “reduces family to any group of strangers.”
What do you say the definition of “family” is? Let us know in the comments!

Actually none of the answers are technically correct, but the one they chose was better than the "correct" one. I would define family as a husband and wife related by marriage, their children, natural adopted or foster, living together in a loving, caring and nurturing relationship. While this is the primary unit of family it also includes siblings, grand parents, aunts, uncles, cousins, in-laws, etc. who may or may not live nearby or conjointly.

Not the politically correct definition perhaps, but a Biblically correct one.
