The Changing North American Family.
Kier, Cheryl A.
MetadataShow full item record
There is a popular belief that changes in the family over the past century (away from the traditional form of two biological parents with father as breadwinner and mother as homemaker) are responsible for declines in moral character, educational and intellectual performance, and physical health shown by today's youth. Is there any evidence for this? Other researchers have argued that families haven't really changed all that much and some of those changes are for the best. I will present both sides of this debate and allow the listener(s) to contemplate which view has the most support.
