Scotland's families today look very different from those of even a generation ago, and it is now widely recognised that the "traditional" household is giving way to a diversity of living arrangements as more people live on their own; more women with children are employed outside the home; the divorce rate has increased; and many children are brought up by a lone parent. Drawing together a range of statistics and dividing them into two main sections, this book provides a picture of family life in Scotland today. It highlights the problems and pitfalls that can beset families, and the support they need to survive and thrive.
