Transcript of Family of the future

These families relied on: Monogamy- Having one martial partner.
Patriarchy- Men were the rulers and decision makers. Family of the future Through history the dynamics of the family has changed drastically.
Civilization started out as Next it transitioned into the Result:
The women's role changed and became secondary, because they were now the property of their husband with very little rights. After, many towns and villages were formed. Turning the family into a monogamous couple, with children and sometimes servants. Because of the decrease in land during this time, families consisted of less children. Women were also forced to arranged marriage because of the economy. Children were also a necessity, and were put to work by the age 7 or 8. This part of history Next it moved into the Nuclear family- A husband and wife live with their children Result: The family then transitioned into the Result: Transitional family- The mother temporarily leaves the work force to look after young children.
Dual-Income family- Both spouse work full time.
Blended family- When divorced partners with children remarry. I predict that in the future our modern life will come to an alarming halt when the satellites can no longer orbit around in space. Everyone in the world would have to change their lifestyle. Humans would not be able to predict the weather, no more GPS, no more national television stations, communication between people would take much longer, air planes would no longer be used. The future: The change of family in result: The family will change back into a mix between the agricultural family and pre-industrial family. The family will have to grow their own food after the supply of what has been grown and produced disappears. Living necessities, such as tooth brushes, clothing, shoes, shampoo; will have to be made by hand because the factories will no longer be able to operate. Most families will go broke and have a very hard time adjusting to this new way of living because they are so used to relying on technology and other people (companies) making their supplies to live. Families may have to group together in order to make supplies and grow food. This allows the group to expand their roles when it comes to producing these types of necessities. They may have to group together because some families today consist of a single mother or a father, mother and only one child therefore, by joining with another family they are able to make ends work. hunter gatherers Basic Theoretical Perspectives Functionalism: I predict that society will have to adjust not only to the situation, but to new roles the family members will have, and changes such as growing and harvesting their own food and making soaps and clothing once the supply runs out in order for society to function properly. People who are not willing to adjust properly and begin to rebel like stealing other family/households goods will have to deal with authorities. Systems theory: Families will have to adjust to be able to interact and work with one another well. For example, if a family member didn't normally get along with their family before the disaster happened, then they will either have to begin to accept the fact that they need to set those problems aside in order for the group to be able to work together or find a way to survive on their own. The family will also have to figure out a way of still being able to work when a member becomes ill. Roles will have to adjust in order to get the task done. Symbolic Interactionism Families who were wealthy before the disaster occurred might have people hired to produce their goods and necessities for them. I predict this because they might find it especially difficult to do their own work because they aren't used to it. This also gives them that sense of higher status because they don't have to do the dirty work. where each family member would gather food for the family and the men would mainly hunt. agricultural family where the family had a farm giving the family more stability in their community due to large land, farming and ownership. is called the pre-industrial family urban industrial family where the economy shifted to farming and producing their own goods into a factory-based earning and the family became the consumer. Women now became nurturers and stayed at home while her husband went to work in order to support the family. Child labor laws were set in place, creating the 'age of innocence'. By the 20th century, the size of the family decreased and couples were getting married later until they could afford to live in their own home. contemporary Canadian family due to new political, economic and social pressures. Families found it hard to live off of one salary and thus, women began working. Women's status began to change giving them rights and and making them less dependent.
