It really just depends on a person’s upbringing and home life to determine his or her idea of a family. A family may not even consist of any blood relatives at all, but the people a person hold near and dear to their heart.

One must remember that sprawl is all about people, and one of the greatest factors that drive the trends of their behavior is culture. It is true that there are many other factors (I.E. economic) at play in the manifestation of sprawl, but the factor of culture is what lies at the very core of the entire issue. This core is the argument that Americans have gradually moved toward a socially and individually isolated culture.
Since I had my children young, I am unable to work without leaving them with someone, which is something I do not wish do to while they are so young. Since I am unable to work I feel as though I am not doing my part within my own little family because of the household I grew up in. With both parents working all of the time I grew up thinking that this was how life should be.

Now that I am older and have my own family I feel that I need to fill in the gap that I always had growing up for my children.

We have seen major shifts in the demographic constitution of the family and public policy, especially in terms of their formation and dissolution. As a result of this there is far more diversity in people's domestic and living arrangements compared to how they were earlier in the centuries. It has been noticed over these recent decades that living patterns between individuals are less and less conforming appropriately to the model of the nuclear family leaving some commentators to claim the family is in terminal decline. Increases in divorce, cohabitation, births outside marriage and lone parent families all result in old certainties to family formations being questioned.

As explained before, when a couple engages in marriage and then children, the roles at home become “more conventional gender-based” in terms of family and work (Coltrane, 2010, p. 121). The father works more hours and the mother attends to family care. It is important to invest in constructing a family that is ungendered or less gendered. This may difficult given the social norm and the external factors that may leak into the family household; however, it is vital for parents and children to make family decision without considering the gender norm.
