There's no bond stronger than that of family, and these family bonding features prove that fact.

From matching outfits to be worn onstage and off to Facebook family reunions, there's no shortage of bizarre rituals parents enforce to stay close to their children.

Implications - The traditional family is a setting that has jumped from real life onto to magazines and television. Comapanies have the opportunity to incorporate family elements in their advertisements to help connect closer with family oriented target markets. Marketers should pay attention to the relationships between family members with regards to the products they sell to ensure they are connecting to their consumer in the right way. This will help to achieve the attraction on new customers.
