The initial idea of lifelong learning argued that individuals in the community can learn and should learn continuously. The presence of lifelong learning was generated by the emergence of learning and educational needs that continue to grow and develop throughout the human life span.  Lifelong learning stresses the motivation of an individual or a group to gain learning experiences in a sustainable manner. The learning experience is taken consciously, programmatically, and systematically through the process of learning in order to achieve the learning objectives that have been set. Lifelong learning serves a function as a motivating force for learners so that they can perform learning activities based on their own drive and self-direction by thinking and behaving for the sake of their world and life.                                                                             

The implementation of lifelong learning in the family indicates that family education is one medium that an individual can take from the cradle to the end of life. The family is the first and major educational institution, proving that a child receives the first educational process that can shape the personality for times to come. Through the family, the parents and family members prepare everything needed by every family member of the family, which can be done through guidance, solicitation, modelling. The family plays a role to introduce customs, habits, rules, values or ways of life. Education in the family implies an effort to help children able to live as a human being with self-development ability.
