I agree the phrase "family values" does have a unfortunate conservative vibe to it. People seem to think of family values as the traditional 1950's American family values, and don't seem to think of the non-traditional families. Besides poly families, there are LGBT families which also don't meet the mold.

I think we need to just so society that while we may be non-traditional, we can be good parents and we can raise our kids to be good members of society. I hope to raise my future kids to know the values of tolerance, of treating every person with respect, and of acceptance. These are also "family values," just not what people traditionally think of.
