Families are the cornerstones of our society. While the traditional, nuclear family remains the basic family model in the United States today, modern families have emerged in a variety of new models and forms. From single parents to same-sex couples to children raised by grandparents, the definition of what is considered a normal family is changing.

The Truth About Family Life, Second Edition is a concise guide to the existence of family life in society, both past and present. In clear, straightforward language, this new resource provides fact-based information on family types, their history and role in society, and how to cope with the basic issues that confront families of all kinds. Personal testimonies and "Fact Or Fiction?" sidebars dispel common myths and give teenagers a broad perspective on the many different types of families.

New and revised entries include:

  • Adoption
  • Communication styles and families
  • Divorce and families
  • Blended families
  • Family traditions
  • Gay parents
  • Puberty and sexual development
  • Single-parent families
  • Teens in trouble
  • Violence and the family.
