The private family can be defined as two or more individuals who maintain an intimate relationship and usually share the same household while pooling their incomes together. In the private family, parents provide children care giving services. However, in recent decades, the commodification of emotional care giving tasks has gone outside the private sphere and into the commercialized market. The major shift in the commodification of care giving services can be seen as a result of the rise of the independence model of marriage because the increase in female labor force participation prevented mothers from providing care giving services, as they traditionally would have in the specialization model of marriage. The nuclear family can be defined as a two generational household consisting of parents and their children. Emotional and care giving services that have been preformed mostly within the nuclear, private family seem somewhat traditional. Recently, families do not need to provide some care giving services because they can be purchased on the market. An indicator of this shift is reflected by the increase in female labor force participation. For example, childcare and childrearing were responsibilities undertaken by parents, specifically mothers. Raising a child and socializing that child through language and reason (Lareau, 85) were tasks middle class mothers completed for their children.
