Jesus stated that a true family is founded on the following seven facts: 
We must call no man father in spiritual sense.  Children need fathers as well as mothers, and fathers need this parental experience as much as do mothers. 
The child must derive his first impressions of the universe from the mother’s care; he is wholly dependent on the earthly father for his first ideas of the heavenly Father.  Disciples must love gospel more than his father or mother.  The earliest races gave little credit to the father, looking upon the child as coming altogether from the mother.  Become the head of a human family is a highly educational and disciplinary responsibility.  It is intended that mortals who start out from an inhabited world have the experience of recognizing seven fathers: 
Fathers are not like judges, enemies, or creditors. Real families are built upon tolerance, patience, and forgiveness.
