Writing assignment

1.Describe the traditional family unit in your country, and also any never types of family units that have become more common in the past few decades. I want to describe the traditional family unit in our country. The traditional family is hospitable, couple. And it’s very religious. The two parents and child is the most important in the society and its part of our culture. In the past few decades the new family units in our country are two parents without wedding. They present the same characteristic that a traditional family; and other type is the single parents. The mother along with her child. I think that is very special family, because the child is without the father and I think this child need the paternal figure to fill complete. The father is the male figure that in most cases are reflecting the security in home.
