A rising wave of violence and terrorism the world over has seen many governments and other authorities pursue different approaches to dealing with such activities. The major role played by families has been a contributing factor that has helped reduce cases of violence and terror especially by young extremists. One of the approaches adopted by many governments has been the use of a family based model of dealing with radicalization at the onset of extremism among the youth. Families have played a vital role in this process which is explored in the paper. Through the analysis of the causes of violence and terrorism it is evident that parents play a very major role in influencing their children. The influence that families have on the lives of youth is what accounts for such youth engaging in violent and terrorist activities. Moreover, the same families that may be dysfunctional and cause violence in the youths may as well provide essential solutions in dealing with this particular societal issue. Since families are the core units of the society, they should be the front line of programs and initiatives that are aimed in prevention and control of violence and terrorist activities.
