FINAL FAMILY ANALYSIS2Finale Family AnalysisIn this paper, I will be describing my family and the changes that have happened in my life also personal experiences. My family has always had decent socioeconomic status. My mom and dad were born in the United states, Minnesota, raised in Minneapolis. My mom was in her twenties when she met my dad who was also in his twenties. My mom and dad meet through a friend. After dating for year, they got married and had two children that are both girls.Family Analysis Part I; Family HistoryCherlin's (2017) definition of public families was one adult, or two adults who are related by marriage, partnership, or shared parenting. They are taking care of dependents, and the dependents can be children, chronically ill and elderly. My family’s history; I would like to say that our family was once a public family with the traditional marriage and children, combined income and working household. But later would turn into a private family where marriages went estranged and the women in the family became a single mother and a full time provider to her children.Composition of FamilyThe composition of my family is a Matrifocal Family System with a divorced mother and father, the primary provider for the family is my mother. In my family, my parents are divorced, grandparents were married until their deaths. My sister is not married and has no children. As theyears have gone by my family history seems to continue to pass on. I bring this part of my familyup because it has had a great effect on my family as a hole and is affecting the next generation coming up.Evolved Generations
FINAL FAMILY ANALYSIS3The last two generations of my family have evolved in education, and in economic status. My mother is a sibling of three all from the same parents; All three children went to college, all worked and are still currently working full time jobs. Looking at my entire family all together, the generation coming up now is hopefully going to evolve. Education was just something you did because you were told, even in my generation. And now with my nieces and nephew's education it is essential to their success and must be maintained before any extra-curricular activities such as sports or a job.Changing Functions in FamilyThe changing functions within my family are education and employment functions (Cancian & Haskins, 2014). Looking back at the educational and work history of my family I would say there is a change in the way our upcoming generations will effectively progress in their future. Education is extremely important now, we are raising our family members to understand the importance of their education, and how doing good in school and furthering their education will help their economic status in the future. Employment is not just getting a job that pays, the function now is to complete grade school and go to college to get a great job that pays well and has long term benefits. Before now, education was secondary and working to support and help
