This class focuses on the relationship among children, families, and the community. Variations in family structure, cultural patterns, and the nature of parent child relationships are examined. Emphasis is on ethnic diversity, social class, gender roles and their impact on family behavior, values, morals and attitudes. The influence of child care, school, peers, and the media is examined. Current issues and problems facing families today are discussed. Agencies and resources which offer services or provide support to families are introduced.
