Welcome to the Starting a Family simulation.

You have just created a client record for Angela Davis and her daughter Anna. Now you need to start a family record for the Davis family.

Starting a family from Angela's client record means she will be designated as the Family Head. This is indicated in the Family Role column. You now need to add her daughter to the family.

Notice that the new family member is given the family role of Dependant – Child. Indicate Anna's relationship to the family head (Angela) before saving the record.

You have successfully created a family record. This is the end of the simulation.
