The monolithic centralized state views the decentralized family – as a threat.
Therefore the state wants to control and subjugate the family to the state through law and policy and court opinion.
This is a huge tenant of Marxism which views the family to be a major pillar of bourgeois society. To them - family must be subjugated by the state.
The family is an institution ordained by God and is not to be controlled by the state. Family is its own government separate from the state – and in fact – civil government is an extension of family government.
