Tudorache Oana Family - Family and social group - Sociology Project Family is a group of people who relate to because of blood ties, marriage or adoption.
Family as social institution has in society several main functions. They are:
- status function : son / daughter, husband / wife
- affective function: every human being finds emotional balance in the family
- protective function: people are protected, firstly by the family institution
- economic function: the family is an economic unit such as production and consumption to register
- social function
- reproductive function Rules of the family 1. Marriage rules are social rules governing choice of parents. Thus we can distinguish:
* endogamous marriage - a choice of partner within the group which includes
* exogamy marriage - marriage is about "outside" group 2. Rules governing the number of partners. Thus we have:
* type monogamous marriage: one man and one woman
* type polygamous marriage: more common in the ancient communities 3.Authority rules establish and exercise leadership in the family. Thus we have:
* patriarchal family
* matriarchal family
* families based on common rules for the exercise of power 4.Location rules are rules governing where they founded a new family household. These rules may be:
* patrilocation - when the new family can be established in man's family household
* matrilocatie - when the new family can settle in female parent household
* neolocatie - when he set up a new household 5. Rules for the selection of partners
* homogamia - this rule indicates that selection for marriage partners is based on their similarity in terms of statuses that have
* proximity - is preferred choice of mates who are close to us, we already know SOCIAL GROUPS In sociology, social group is a concept defined as any human aggregation of two or more persons, with the following features:
~ feeling of belonging to group
~ interactions between group members
~ the existence of common characteristics (values, beliefs, aspirations, common interests)
~ the existence of common interests and a common goal TYPOLOGY OF GROUPS a. Primary groups and secondary groups
# Primary groups are small groups where members communicate and always have relationships such as "face to face"
# Groups the opposite side of primary groups, designate groups that are not based on emotional interactions, are often professional interest groups in which the interactions are often mediated by tools b.Formal and informal groups
# Formal groups are normally created by organizational structure
# Groups are informal groups "natural" interactions that occur within certain subjects
It should be noted here that these two types of groups are incomparable and they can coexist. c. Membership and reference groups :
-membership groups are groups that you belong at a time
-reference groups are those in which we don't belong, although we take as reference values, norms and symbols Groups are not static elements, the nature of relationships between group members are in a changing .
1.Training groups - the early stage group, the members did not know each other, relationships are extremely polite and concern individuals. This stage is about knowing the other.
2.Storm - is the stage of conflict in which group members negotiate their positions within the group. Groups' dynamics 3.Standardization - is the stage where the rules are determined based on which group will work in the negotiation stage to verify previous results. Thus, the group reaches a certain order to define its interior.

4. Operation - is the stage where the group operates within the guidelines agreed period of maximum productivity. Obviously not all groups go through all these stages and throughout the four stages not manifest the same intensity.
