The vertiginous changes that have occurred in recent times have conditioned the way people live, act or think, affecting each structure that makes up society, and the family as a social institution is not far behind in this transformation process. However, in recent decades the family has been understood not only as an organizationunited by blood ties but rather as an organizational group that pursues the same interests from the same prevailing ideology or philosophy; For this reason, the family has gone from being a reduced group to being understood as an extensive group, hence the conception of family presents difficulties between the relationship of the signified and the signifier,between what something is and what is understood; so that language is used in a different way compared to previous years, since there are differences in concepts, language being a constructor or destroyer of realities; Therefore, at present it is possible to speak of the existence of various types of family. The contemporary family as a social institution presents problems, which are related to the influence of the economy and democratic politics, the world has become a global market that offers its potential customers various elements that can satisfy all kinds of needs. . Therefore, the sharp Floralba tries to be a subversive instrument that allows guiding the family in its healthy development.
