Family performs a very important function-the development of the individual, including its socialization, as well as spiritual, moral and artistic development, prepares a skilled workforce to ensure the material and spiritual needs of society. (Coady, N., & Lehmann, P. (Eds.). (2016)

Social work in the family system is only just beginning to become a special direction of the social sphere of the Australians, in this connection it is necessary to point out the social and pedagogical aspects of social work in general and to identify the corresponding working fields in which it is to act:
Policy implementation in Social work
As a social phenomenon, social work is one of the types and methods of social activity, having its own specifics. This type of social activity has an active character, its subject and subject are people, and the main goal and means is to achieve a social result in the life of the person, the whole society.
The phrase "social activity" for semantic content is ambiguous. In one context, it is used to describe the nature of activity in society as a whole. In another sense, the phrase "social activity" is often identified with the activities of people in the social sphere, within the framework of which the formation and development of the social structure, social institutions, and the social status of a person occurs. But most often social activity is associated with the notions of "social policy", "social partnership", "social security", "social welfare", "social work", etc.
The boundaries of social work as spheres of social action can be defined only in specific space-time coordinates, since at the professional level social work is largely limited by the limits predetermined by the social policy of a particular state in a specific time period of its historical development(Greene, R. R. (2017)
When the decision is made by the parents both Mohammed and Benazir, the role of First Child social worker is to help the children in full assessment of the childs need. From the assessment, a care plan for the children is developed by the social worker. In implementation, a range of professionals can also be involved inorder to give a comprehensive report on the childs need. A care plan by the social worker and the professionals tasked will determine the interventions and support that should be given to child Asam in relation to the family situation (Netting & Thomas, 2016).
The care plan by the social worker will determine the placement care that is most appropriate to the needs of the child, education, health and the contact with the immediate family. The care placements meets the need of the child that is coming into the care. The care social workers duties include;

The purpose of social work is to provide an opportunity for all people to fully develop their potential, enrich their lives and prevent life difficulties.
The activity of the social worker is aimed at maintaining, developing and rehabilitating individual and social subjectness, while the social educator manages the upbringing of a person in society (Cooper, M., & Lesser, J. G. (2014).
Social workers and social educators deal with the same problems, and their tasks are realized in the same plane.

The family can be regarded as a system that implements a number of important social functions - reproductive, familial, socializing, psychotherapeutic, economic, etc. Distinguish normally functioning and dysfunctional families. Normally functioning is called the family, which responsibly fulfills its basic functions, as a result of which the basic needs are met and the vital activity of the family as a whole and of each of its members is provided separately.
Sometimes, instead of functional and dysfunctional terms, the concepts of a prosperous and dysfunctional family are used. This is done in cases where it is necessary to emphasize the specific factors causing the disruption of the family's life, for example, a low level of material support, conflict in the relations between relatives, the presence of a crisis situation, etc.
Throughout the world, this list of indicators is used to determine the normal functioning of family systems. This standard can serve as a basic model in the development of concepts and the definition of social and family policies of the state, as well as serve as a benchmark in practical social work with the family and children. (Turner, F. J. (2017).

In Australia, the specialty "social teacher" is only being formed, although the labor market has already determined its more independent position than the specialty "social worker". In the case when the resources of the extended family system are unavailable for a single mother, divorce leads to a number of negative consequences: a sharp decline in the family's quality of life and deterioration in its quality, a decrease in the potential for professional self-realization of the mother, and therefore the absence of prerequisites for returning to or improving the previous standard of living , a significant restriction of opportunities for a favorable social start for children (Yegidis & Myers, 2017).
