Topic: In recent years, the family structure has changed, as well as family roles. Why are these changes happening? Do you think these changes are positive and negative?
– Background statement: the concept of family has changed a great deal over the past decades
– Thesis statement: these changes can be attributed to many reasons and are bringing about both pleasant and unpleasant consequences to individuals and the society
Reasons for changes in family structure and family roles
– Individualism and sexual equality increasingly dominate people’s mindset and life style
+ rising divorce rate; gay marriages => more diversified types of family (single-parent, blended, etc.)
+ children’s freedom and opinions are respected => parents’ authority shrinks
+ nuclear family becomes prevalent
+ husband and wife have the equal right and responsibility
Impacts of the trends:
– positive effects:
+ Children are better educated in terms of responsibility and independence
+ Many family conflicts are better solved (no domineering husbands or parents; good mutual understanding and respect)
– negative effects:
+ deteriorating family bonding and values
+ emotionally deficient children due to parents’ divorce
+ ignorance of and disrespect for valuable traditions and customs
– The dramatic shift in family pattern is inevitable thanks to some afore-mentioned social factors.
– While generating some significant outcomes, these changes can also be harmful not only for the family but for the community as well.
– It’s everyone’s responsibility to cherish and preserve endangered family values.
