I don't know if this will be of much help but we don't really talk about Durkheim when discussing the role of the family, other than stating that as the founder of functionalism he believes that the family is preferably nuclear.
murdock stated the family had 4 functions: sexual, reproductive, economic and educational.
Parsons then narrowed this to 'two basic and irreducible functions'
1. Primary socialisation
2. The stabilisation of adult personalities ( which is accomplished an isolated nuclear family by the fact that the stress of work is counterbalanced by the warmth security offered by the nuclear family)
