filial (FIL-ee-uhl) adjective
Of or relating to an offspring.
[From Middle English, from Late Latin filialis, from Latin filius (son).]
"Don't let your social and filial relations unwillingly be scarified
through the use of the Internet and online friendships."
"After commercialism reared its inevitable head, Miss Jarvis (who started
Mother's Day) rued that filial urge and battled those who 'would
undermine Mother's Day with their greed.'"

The fact that a believer is happier than a skeptic is no more to the point than the fact than a drunken man is happier than a sober one. -George Bernard Shaw, writer, Nobel laureate (1856-1950)
