TV to Watch: HBO’s “A Family is a Family is a Family”

A scene from HBO's "A Family is a Family is a Family"

How do you define family?

Comedian and actress Rosie O’Donnell will  try to answer this question through her documentary “A Family is a Family is a Family: A Rosie O’Donnell Celebration” airing Sunday, Jan. 31 on HBO at 7 p.m.

The program looks at all the shapes a family can come in, including  two-parent households, single parents, gay and lesbian parents and families with adopted children. No matter what form a family comes in, love is the tie that binds, said O’Donnell, a lesbian who is separated from her partner and raising children jointly with her.

“Family is forever. And family is love,” she said.

Social workers often help families build stronger relationships. For more information, visit the National Association of Social Workers’ “Help Starts Here” Kids & Families Web page by clicking here.
