A lot of people rely on streaming for their music these days. And there's nothing truly wrong with that, of course. However, streaming has some downsides. If your family has low bandwidth (especially if you're in a rural area where you may not have access to high speed), streaming can take up a good chunk of your usable internet.
And of course, streaming is reliant upon there being an internet connection, so if your internet goes down, you're stuck. If you're in a rural area relying on satellite internet, you know a storm system can take your internet out for a couple of days, but even if you have access to high-speed internet, sometimes the internet goes down for inexplicable reasons.
By actually purchasing albums, you're getting a digital or physical copy of the music- sometimes you get both, depending on where you buy and how much you're willing to spend. And, of course, you've got music that you can listen to when the internet goes down (as it likely will at some point, generally when it's least convenient to you).
But also, by purchasing music, you're supporting the artists who made it.
Artists don't get much from streaming, often less than one cent per stream. If you stream your family's favorite song 100 times, the artist might not even make a dollar off of it. So you are supporting your artists, but not by a whole lot. (This number varies depending on a lot of factors, of course.)
Also, when you buy music, you have a lot more control over what gets played. It seems like streaming gives you control, but if you forget to turn off the settings that let it keep playing music when the album or playlist is done, you might encounter music you don't want your kids to hear. Or you may rely on playlists compiled by other people putting together playlists can be time-consuming, but these are user-generated, and even if they are labeled family-friendly, they may not be right for yours.
If you want upbeat music for your household, there's plenty of albums that are compiled with your standards in mind, available for purchase. And buying them supports the makers of these albums a lot more ably than streaming them would, as well as giving you the specific information for what's available to listen to, so you know what you're getting into when you buy them.
