Fahrenheit 451

How are children and family viewed in the society of the novel?

I would like to know the answer. And I would need a quote.

"Will you turn the parlour off?" he asked.

"That's my family." (Part I)

"Family" is not defined as we know it today, or especially in the way it was defined when the novel was written. There is no family. The living, breathing wife that Montag married treated him like an accessory in the room. The television characters she spends her day with are treated and seen as family. In Fahrenheit 451, we see the relationship of family defined as one with no attachment or love.
