We attend mass regularly as a family – on Sundays, Holy Days of Obligations and special occasions. Both of our daughters have attended St. Paul of the Cross Elementary school. Our older daughter, Rebecca, graduated four years ago from St. Paul and is now a senior at Northside College Prep High School in Chicago. Rebecca belongs to the St. Paul Youth Group, Network; she attends meetings and volunteers with the other teens in the parish. Samantha is in 8th grade and has attended St. Paul since pre-Kindergarten.
In my personal opinion, marriage in America will no longer be as sacred as it was to our grandparents and great grandparents. At the end of the day all a person has is family, so yes the way each family functions and what they believe in, and value has changed from when past generations were growing up. But also every family is different from one another. Therefore as long as a family is functioning and doing so healthily I feel that it does not matter if a family is traditional or not, as long as they have something to come home to, everyone is comfortable around different things.

He wants everyone to that, it's very easy to not be very discriminated by the way you look but the way your skin color. Mr. King is very descriptive of his words and his meaning for them. He can really make the world change if everyone really did follow. King's reason for the speech is because he is trying to make a difference, he is a very good well taught speaker and he speaks with so much enthusiasm and nothing could really stop him from anything he's doing.His argument is very reasoning to his defence and he eats so many reason to why the work works in its evil ways of discrimination. He wants everyone to that, it's very easy to not be very discriminated by the way you look but the way your skin color.
In “Essentials of Sociology” it states “despite the very real problems families face, family relationships continue to be a major source of satisfaction for most Americans throughout their lives.” (306) In most American families, most members are striving to reach the “American Dream.” This would include being financially stable, having nice materialistic things, good relationships within the family, and the list could go on and on. What I have learned over parts of this class, even families living in that dream can still not achieve the happiness they are searching for and could potentially be just as unhappy as families living in poverty. In America, we base a lot off of the things we own and the lives we live, versus the type of family relationships we have. It is a very outward appearance. Depending on what type of family you grew up in, truly has an effect on what type of person you will become.
My "normal" has been declared as a loving mother and father with kids and a nice home in American culture. Still there are many extremes in American families today which others believe to be "normal". One-day kids will believe having parents of the same sex is "normal". Our America is ever changing as is our ideas of American normalcy. So, compared to children who don't have two parents and a car to drive or food in their cupboards my family is "normal".
The concept of family has change a lot over the past decides. Not only this, but the notions of family are very different depending on the countries, but the idea of a family (mother, father, children) has remained the same. In the 1950 's the normal American family consisted of a breadwinner father, homemaker mother, and several children, all living in homes in the suburbs on the outskirts of a larger city. It was a narrow view of a model family, yet it saturated the media and was widely accepted as the ideal and most normal. Now a days, a family can be anything, form a single mother raising her boy, to a gay couple raising adopted children.
My household is made up of 5 people my parents Gracie and Freddie Cade, my dad like to be called by his middle name his real name is Herbert Freddie Cade. Then there is my brother and sister. My sister and I most of the time got along, but my brother and I rarely got along mainly because we shared a room all of our lives. Well I was born to a poor family. We lived in a small mobile home (trailer).
Gender role is a set of expectations set forth by society about the ways in which men and women are “supposed” to behave based on their gender. In the Era of which we live, the expectations are closer than ever to being distinct. Many people of my generation, and younger, may not completely understand this question, due to the fact that it is almost the norm to see single parent homes and to have both parents working full time. The stay at home mother is almost a thing of the past. In some situations the “gender role” has been completely switched, with the father being the stay at home parent.
When she was four years old, Jennifer and her mother moved to Winnipeg and they have been here ever since. Shortly after we started dating she asked me to visit her favorite place in the whole world with her. On the drive down to her families, Jennifer told me of her fondest childhood memories at Belmont Lake and how she would spend every summer and spring vacation there with her family. Jennifer’s grandfather bought the land on the lakeshore and cleared it himself. It was the last lot on the bay at the end of the road that led into the community.
Of course, we recognise that in contemporary society, people are less likely spontaneously to describe their own experiences in the language of class. They search for more direct and specific determinants of their life chances to put alongside their recognition of class, and they recognise the independent part played by age, gender, and ethnicity. We do not, then, live in a 'classless' society, though we do live in a society whose members no longer spontaneously and unambiguously use the language of class as the obvious, taken-for-granted way of describing social inequalities. Class is not dead, but perhaps the monolithic social imagery of class has, indeed, had its day. It is this, which makes our society a functional one, and what will help shape it to be a stronger one in the future.
