Tim O’Brien FSW 281-B Observation #2 Family Culture—Times are changing Family culture and rituals are things that are carried on from generation to generation. Or are they? Growing up, my father would always say, “When I was a kid I had to walk 3 miles to school in the snow, uphill both ways.” That was his comical way of expressing how times have changed, and culture is becoming increasingly different for children growing up in today’s society. While my father is correct, there are also some family rituals that have stood the test of time. I will discuss both the consistent and revolutionized aspects of family culture in this paper. For this observation I chose to use my own family, giving me the opportunity to observe firsthand how culture and rituals are changing. My parents were very intrigued when I approached him about this observation, as they have always had a “family first” mentality. I gave them a basic introduction to the assignment, and asked them what they wanted to focus on.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
