Society currently views making a family that isn’t biological in nature controversial. Nonetheless, individual families hold the right to decide the makeup of their family. If each family focuses on the true nature of a family, unconditional love, we, as a society, will adopt and carry on the term of a family. With choice, people have the freedom to make their families, either biologically or by adoption.

Functionalists, who traditionally dominated the sociology of the family, feel that the family is necessary for the running and continuation of an integrated society.
Claire’s family is the most like the traditional family. She is married to her husband Phil Dunphy and together they have three kids, Haley, Alex, and Luke (Modern Family). The show exposes the families’ struggles to get along and survive with such a different way of living. With that said, their family picture demonstrates very well all of the strong personalities and roles of each family member. The American identity is described as the motivation to succeed, the desire to solve problems, and the combination of different backgrounds.
My mom wanted there to be male roll models in our life’s, my uncle and grandpa are the ones that I looked up to. Is it better to live with two parents that are unhappy or with one parent that loves you unconditionally? If two parents fight all the time or on of the two is always working while the other is with the kids is it really different.

Parenting can sometimes be something that you learned from watching others or something you were just thrown into. Traditionally and idealistically, the perfect family would be a family in which both the mother and father are married to each other, the father is working, and the mother is also working but both parents are making time to take care of the children. Most American children are raised by both parents in their household (E. Jordan, personal communication, October 11, 2016). Idealistically, the father is mostly supporting the family and the children get to live and find themselves in a supportive household. The children can choose their own career paths and they are engaged in extracurricular activities while the parents are right
Families have both parents a mom and dad to two moms, two dads, one of each as in a divorced situation, or even multiple sets of parents. Leading any one of the genders to role-play as the dominant or the nurturing parent perhaps both. The sitcom ‘The Modern Family” shows just about a little of all families as they are portrayed today. Each family weather they are the standard normal family with dad, mom, and kids or the family with same sex parents still have the same roles as anyone else.

Boylan and her wife wanted to make it very clear to their children what their father was planning to become. Surprisingly the children took the news very well, insisting that they call their father, “Maddy” rather than, “Daddy.” Although Boylan has a very unconventional family, they are still a strong family nonetheless. Her children were allowed to express themselves however they chose and turned into two very well rounded individuals, which can be said is better than what some children in a conventional home setting have grown up with. Boylan is also another example of how the idea of family has evolved in America, no longer does a family consist of a mother, father, two children, and a dog, but rather a myriad of different genders, ethnicities, and religions. No one wants to live a life of fear anymore, and when we are told we are free, we feel applies to the freedom of expression.
The nuclear family, or traditional family, is something that every family wants, because it’s supposed to be the “perfect” family. The father’s role is providing for the family as well as protecting it, while at the same time being the family’s disciplinary role model. The woman’s role within the traditional nuclear family consists of keeping a clean home and motherhood. The mother and father always work out their problems for the sake of their marriage and children. This translates into future success by teaching their children how to seek out positive relationships and interact well with others.
If you were to Google the definition of the word family, you would see “a group consisting of parents and children living in a household” or “a person or people related to one and so to be treated with a special loyalty or intimacy.” In my opinion, family is a group of people, no matter their race, religion, or sexual orientation, who love each other and will do anything to protect them.
