cross cultural understanding

  1. 1. What is “value”? What is “family”? Family Values
  2. 2. Child Raising Young Adulthood THE ELDERLY The Nuclear and The Extended Family Stability and Change in the Family
  3. 3. Child Raising or raising children is a greater responsibility than many people realize. In addition to meeting their physical and emotional needs, parents have a responsibility to impart a value system to their children.
  4. 4. Young Adulthood Upon reaching an appropriate age (usually between 18 and 21 years), children are encouraged, but not forced, to "leave the nest" and begin an independent life.
  5. 5. Societal and familial treatment of the elderly also reflects this independence and individualism. Their financial support is often provided by social security or welfare systems which decrease dependence on their family.
  6. 6. The Nuclear and The Extended Family In the United States the nuclear family, which consists of the father, the mother, and the children, is considered "the family.“ The extended family, common in other cultures, includes grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, and in-laws.
  7. 7. Stability and Change in the Family Changes in the American family structure are evidenced by increased rates of separation and divorce. In certain areas of the country these trends have resulted in a growing number of "single-parent" families, remarried parents, and communal lifestyles.
