In at least 150 words, describe the strengths and weaknesses of American family life in the 21stcentury. For example, a strength of today’s family might be that parents are more open and understanding of the differences in their children. Traditional families may have disowned a daughter that got pregnant while unmarried, while today’s families would help her and understand.
A major weakness of today family might be that we are less involved in each other’s lives.
The initial post must be at least 150 words and is due by Thursday at 11:59 pm. Grammar, punctuation, and sentence structure count. I expect it to be in paragraph form. DO NOT plagiarize. Plagiarism will result in 0 for this assignment. Cite all sources and back up all opinion with facts. Cite the textbook as well.
