Family

Narrowly, parents and their offspring. More broadly, the group defined as those who have common ancestry. That is, the group produced as a result of sex leading to offspring.

The term is also used more loosely to describe a group with some form of common characteristic or a group with a relationship (other than ancestral).

A family requires (at least) a mother, a father, and children.
