In Coontz’s book she goes in depth about the “traditional family” that everyone idealizes and pictures when they hear the word family. In the first chapter of her book she uses the example of one of her family history classes and describes an assignment she gives to her students where she tells them to “write down what comes to mind when they think of the ‘traditional family’” (8). She receives a variety of responses that have to do with “nurturing mothers shelter[ing] their children” and “men and women remain[ing] chaste
