Another article posted on our Facebook page last week about the nuclear family.

This article covers a large period in American history, and the author David Brooks investigates how the nuclear family came to be the most common family type, and was (and still is promoted in many countries as) the 'most stable family type'.

This is a lengthy article that is also helpfully provided in an audio format too. The Atlantic has also posted a short video (approximately 5 minutes) available on YouTube that may be useful in lessons.

This would be an incredibly useful article/video for Families and Households (family types, marriage, divorce), Theory and Methods (functionalism, New Right, feminism, Marxism).
