"Family Visibility" Across Countries and Cultures

"Family visibility" may also vary dramatically between communities: One town might have a culture of more families going for walks, and another might be totally dominated by car culture—even more than usual. It could also vary significantly according to the day of the week: One reason I might have seen so many kids in Mexico City was that I was there on Sunday, apparently the typical "family day" for outings and so on. I was also in Oaxaca during Día de Muertos celebrations, so families may have brought out their kids more for that special occasion.
What are your thoughts about "family visibility"? Have you been to different countries and thought it differed between them? My perspective is a pretty limited one, so please leave a comment and start a conversation.
