What is a family? It is usually a group people who live together forming a social group. It usually consists of the parent(s) and their children, living together. The members of the group are usually related by marriage, blood or adoption. However, in modern society, there are many different variations of family, to represent the different ways that families and society have changed. The family is still the basic unit within society.
Before considering the different types of families, let us consider WHY the family structure has changed –
- State education has meant that people tend to be more well-educated and knowledgeable and may want a better standard of living.
- The role of women has changed in that they have become better educated, more independent and able to leave home without necessarily being married.
- Families have generally become smaller – this is on average – of course there will always be families with larger numbers of children.
- People are more mobile in terms of their willingness to move to be nearer their jobs.
- People are more likely to work, which makes them more independent financially and able to afford their own homes.
- Family planning and contraception has meant that people can decide when or if to have children.
- Improved transport has meant that people can move away from their families.
Some Interesting Facts
The American Organisation, the Children’s Defense Fund found the following statistics about American children –
- 50% will live in a single parent family at some point in their life.
- 1 in 3 is born to unmarried parents.
- 25% live with only one parent.
- 1 in 8 is born to a teenage mother
- 1 in 25 lives with neither parent.
The Nuclear Family
This is a family consisting of parents and their children. It is still a common form of family in most Western cultures. Historically, one person would work and one would stay at home caring for the children. This has obviously changed, but the basic structure stays the same. The parents will usually bring up their children with little or no help from their family, but they may use nurseries, day care and so on. They are basically a separate household unit.
The Extended Family
The extended family are the other members of a family who may live close by or with the family. They consist of uncles, aunts, cousins, grandparents, brothers and sisters. This form of family is the norm within some cultures.
An extended family can be horizontally extended – where cousins, aunts and uncles live with the family. A vertically extended family is where grandparents live with the family.
Why are there fewer extended families?
There are many reasons, these are some suggestions –
- Increased opportunities in care have meant that there are other opportunities for older relatives rather than living in the family home.
- The increase in divorce and relationship breakdowns has meant that children may lose contact with members of their own extended family.
- Families are more mobile, so move within a country and from country to country, again losing contact with their own extended family.
- Grandparents are healthier, so may live longer and remain independent for longer, so will live longer in their own homes.
- There has been an increase in female employment, so women, who were traditionally the carers of children, are more likely to work. This means that grand parents are not necessarily available to care for grandchildren, resulting in parents using paid childcare.
- Women may have children later, which can mean grandparents are older and less able to help out with childcare.
Extended families are still common in some cultures, for example, families from Bangladeshi and Pakistani origin, but they are not necessarily the norm in cultures where they once were, such as the UK, America etc.
A matriarchy is a form of society, where the women and mothers of a community take the leading role. This form of society is very rare and even evidence from the past which has been used to support the existence of these forms of cultures has been limited or discredited.
This is where the family unit is based on a man as the father figure. It also refers to the role of men in society as a whole, where they take the responsibility for the welfare of the community. Patriarchy is the dominant mode of organisation in society throughout history.
The Modified Family
Nowadays, many families do not necessarily fit neatly into these categories anymore. These families are known as modified families, in that they are structured differently to the traditional nuclear family. There has been an increase in the number of modified families, due to single parent families and reconstituted families (to be discussed shortly).
Step Families or the Reconstituted Family
Reconstituted families are known more commonly as step families, where two separate parents (alone due to divorce, bereavement, separation etc) may start a new relationship with another parent. This means that the two parents may marry or cohabit forming a new family. A stepfamily will exist when a child is the biological offspring of one parent, but not the other. For example, a man with a son marries a woman with a daughter. The girl would be the father’s stepdaughter. The son would be the mother’s stepson.
Belonging to a step family can lead to issues for the children involved in the family –
- They have to come to terms with another parent in their life. They may still have contact with their biological parent but not actually live with them anymore. E.g. they may live with their mother and her new partner (their step-father), but still see their biological father. This means they have to come to terms with another parental figure living with them.
- This can lead to difficulties if there are differences in ideas of child rearing between the parent and step parent.
- There may be jealousy between step-siblings.
- There may be animosity between step-siblings.
This is not to say that step-families are always negative situations. A new family may mean a new, and positive, start for the family members, the parent has an adult relationship and may feel happier, the children have two adult role models, they may have a better quality of life etc.
Single/Lone Parent Families
This family usually consists of one parent and their children. The majority of adults in single parent families are women, but this is not always the case. People can become lone parents due to divorce, separation, bereavement, choosing to remain single, illness or prison.
- 68.7% of American youth live in non-traditional families.
- 4.4% live with their biological father.
- 23.3% live with their biological mother
- 1% live in foster families
- 30% live in Step-families
The Family Life Cycle
Families move through a life cycle, the same as individuals. In each stage, a family faces changes and challenges. Not all families pass easily through stages; there may be difficulties, such as death, divorce and so on.

Extract from book:
We don’t know for sure how much of our communication is non-verbal. Estimates vary from 50% to the 80%. Non-verbal communication becomes more significant, the more mixed the messages are. So if a person is saying one thing, but their body is saying something else, we will tend to pay more attention to what their body is saying to us. Most of us are aware that this is a sign of attempted deception.
Meharabian (1971) carried out a study to see how people decide if they like each other. They looked at facial expressions and spoken words. Participants had to listen to a recording of a female saying one word “maybe” in three tones of voice – neutral, like and dislike. The subjects were then shown photographs of a female face with three expressions – neutral, like and dislike. They were asked to guess which emotion the person in the photograph, the person on the recording and both together were experiencing.
The participants were more accurate in guessing the emotion of the photographs than the voice at a ratio of 3:2. Meharabian also carried out another study where participants had to listen to nine words. Three showed liking (dear, thanks, honey), three showed disliking (brute, terrible, don’t) and three showed neutrality (oh, maybe, really). The words were spoken in different tones. The participants were asked to guess the emotions behind the words. They found that tone carried more meaning than the word.
They concluded that:
■ Without seeing and hearing non-verbal messages, there can be more chance of misunderstanding.
■ A lot of communication does come through non-verbal communication, but we are still unsure as to the exact amount.
■ When we are not sure about a particular word, we pay more attention to non-verbal communication.
■ When we do not trust a person, we pay more attention to non-verbal communication.
There are many myths about body language. For example, crossing your arm means defensiveness, covering your mouth means you are lying and so on. But we should rely more on other factors such as:
■ Clusters of factors (showing more signs of non-verbal communication).
■ Non-verbal behaviour at the time a question is asked, particularly if the question is embarrassing or difficult.
■ Situations where the other person may not be trying to control their non-verbal behaviour.
As we said above, it is important to consider your own non-verbal communication. BUT not to such an extent that you try to control it all the time, which can make it appear false or give mixed messages from you.
Assessment is based on a combination of completing all assignments and sitting for a final short one and a half hour exam, in your own location.
If you don’t cope well with exams then you may elect to undertake a project instead. This is a popular option.
In addition, most modules have a Set Task at the end of each lesson placed before the assignment. This is an opportunity to undertake practical work to help you acquire knowledge and skills and practical experience. This ADL feature is an added bonus not found at most online schools. Set Tasks are not required for assessment.
Some courses also have optional Self-Tests which are available on our online learning platform. These are not available by correspondence or by USB, and do not form part of your overall grade.
How our courses work
- Choose Your Learning Method
You choose how you would like to receive your course material, i.e., Online, USB or Correspondence. The choice is yours. You may also work on online or offline.
- Tutor Allocation
Every student is assigned their own dedicated tutor who is an expert in their subject area. They provide as much or as little individual contact as you require. You can contact your tutor whenever you need – your hours are not limited.
- Feedback and Assignments
Tutor Feedback is an essential component in helping you understand the subject matter. Tutor feedback is given in the form of notes written on the assignment. We encourage you to contact your Tutor where help with clarification and understanding of course material may be required.
Your assignments are located at the end of each lesson. You submit them for marking whenever you are ready. There is no time limit.
- Set Tasks and Self-Tests
Most modules have a Set Task at the end of each lesson before for the assignment. This is where you get the opportunity to undertake practical work to help you acquire knowledge, skills and practical experience. Many modules also have short Self-Tests.
Once all assignments have been completed you may then elect to sit for a one and half hour exam in your own location. If you prefer not to take the exam you do have the option to undertake a project instead.
Once the exam or project part of the course is completed, your Certificate is then processed. Please allow approximately 4 weeks for this.
- Design Your Own Qualification
ADL offers students the flexibility to self-design their own qualification – bundling together a combination of 100-hour modules into a qualification higher than a certificate.

Exam fees are included in the tuition fee you paid. You can read more about the examination process here. At the end of each lesson, there is an assignment.

Q. How many assignments do I need to complete for each module?
A. At the end of each lesson, there is an assignment – so if a course has say, 10 lessons there would be 10 assignments. The number of lessons per module varies from module to module. See the course content from our website for further details.
Q. When do I have to hand in my first assignment?
A. There is no deadline for handing in the first assignment. Submit when you are ready. There are some students who hand in assignments within the first couple of weeks of enrolment – while there are others who submit their work 6 months later. It’s all at your own convenience to suit you. Everyone has different work and home commitments and we cater to these needs.
Q. I am having difficulty attending workshops/industry meetings, what can be done?
A. If your course requires attendance at workshops, conferences, or industry meetings; alternative arrangements can be made in your country; however, there may be an additional expense. We can appoint an appropriately qualified person anywhere to work through curriculum documentation supplied by us, to satisfy the requirements set down in a course.

A. Yes – you can progress from one module to a combination of many modules and to higher qualifications i.e. Advanced Certificates, Diplomas and Higher Advanced Diplomas. Read more about course levels here.
Q. Can I customize my diploma/higher qualification?
A. Not all educational institution’s certificates /diplomas meet everyone’s needs. The opportunity to design your own diploma at the Academy (subject to our approval) is an added bonus, not found at other colleges. It’s a very popular option and widely used by many students. You quite simply choose the appropriate number of related modules needed to complete the qualification and submit them to us for approval as a custom diploma.

A. Exams are optional but need to be undertaken in order to receive the Certificate or higher qualification. Exams are one and a half hours long. You appoint an adjudicator (subject to our approval) to supervise the exam. You sit for the exam in your own location. Its that simple.
Q. I don’t cope well with exams – what can I do?
A. If you feel you don’t cope well with exams you may elect to undertake a Project (set by the tutor) instead of sitting the exam. Many students prefer this option as they find researching the material for the project sharpens their research skills.
Q. If I don’t sit for the Exam do I still get a qualification?
A. If you don’t sit for the exam but complete the project alternative, you will still receive your endorsed qualification. If you don’t sit for an exam or complete a final project, providing you have completed all the assignments you will be awarded a Certificate of Achievement.
Q. Do I have to sit for the exam at the Academy?
A. No – whilst you are more than welcome to come to our location in Canterbury, U.K. and sit the exam in our classroom; the more popular option is to sit for the exam in your own location. You appoint an adjudicator to supervise the exam. Click here for more information on that process.
