From the Back Cover:

Future Families explores the variety of family forms which characterize our contemporary culture while addressing the implications of these increasingly diverse family units on child development. Noted psychologist Ross Parke traces the shifts in parental roles resulting from increased divorce rates, single-parent families, cohabiting couples , same-gender parental relationships, and other non-traditional family types.

Parke reveals how the ideal nuclear family stereotype is further challenged by non-traditional family forms introduced through outside cultures, ethnic variations within our own culture, and assisted reproductive technologies. He offers recommendations as to how social policies can be modified to better reflect the new diversity of family forms and suggests ways to provide support for all families to improve the lives of adults and children. Timely and enlightening, Future Families offers rich insights into ways contemporary society has redrawn the boundaries of family.

About the Author:

Ross D. Parke is Distinguished Professor of Psychology, Emeritus, and past Director of the Center for Family Studies at the University of California, Riverside. He has authored or co-authored several books on the field, including Fathers and Fatherhood, Throwaway Dads, Child Psychology: A Contemporary Perspective, and Social Development.
