Cereal Packet Family

The cereal packet family is a functionalist concept which argues that the idealised version of the family is the nuclear family of mother, father an two children. This is an idea based on the 1950s version of the family and household, ignoring the fact that the families have changed in structure and diversity. For example; the cereal packet family does not describe same-sex relationships as they do not fit the stereotypical mold this rigid family structure puts in place.
