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.

  • Reveals the diversity of new family forms based on the most current research on fathers, same-gender parents, new reproductive technologies, and immigrant families
  • Illustrates that children and adults can thrive in a variety of non-traditional family forms
  • Shows the interrelatedness of new trends in family organization through the common themes of embedded families and caregiving in community and cultural contexts
  • Features an interdisciplinary approach, drawing from works in areas that include child development, family studies, sociology, cross-cultural scholarship, ethnic studies, biology, neuroscience, anthropology and even architecture
  • Sets an agenda for future research in the area of families by identifying important gaps in our knowledge about families and parenting

Keywords: Relationships, Marriage & Family, Developmental psychology, child development, marriage, fatherhood, divorce, single-parent, same gender parents, social policy, immigration.
