The traditional family structure is considered a family support system which involves two married individuals providing
care and stability for their biological offspring. However, this two-parent, nuclear family has become less prevalent, and
alternative family forms have become more common. The family is created at birth and establishes ties across
generations. Those generations, the extended family of aunts, uncles, grandparents, and cousins, can all hold significant
emotional and economic roles for the nuclear family.

Different kinds of family structures:

 Nuclear family: A family unit consisting of at most a father, mother and dependent children. It is considered the
“traditional” family.
 Extended family: A family consisting of parents and children, along with either grandparents, grandchildren,
aunts or uncles, cousins etc. In some circumstances, the extended family comes to live either with or in place of
a member of the nuclear family.
 Step families: Two families brought together due to divorce, separation, and remarriage.
 Single parent family: This can be either a father or a mother who is singly responsible for the raising of a child.
The child can be by birth or adoption. They may be a single parent by choice or by life circumstances. The other
parent may have been part of the family at one time or not at all.
 Adoptive family: A family where one or more of the children has been adopted. Any structure of family may also

 Foster family: A family where one or more of the children is legally a temporary member of the household. This
“temporary” period may be as short as a few days or as long as the child’s entire childhood.
 Gay or Lesbian family: A family where one or both of the parents’ sexual orientation is gay or lesbian. This may
be a two-parent family, an adoptive family, a single
parent family or an extended family.
 Immigrant family: A family where the parents have immigrated to another country as adults. Their children may
or may not be immigrants. Some family members may continue to live in the country of origin, but still be
significant figures in the life of the child.
 Migrant family: A family that moves regularly to places where they have employment. The most common form of
migrant family is farm workers who move with the crop seasons. Children may have a relatively stable
community of people who move at the same time - or the family may know no one in each new setting. Military
families may also lead a migrant life, with frequent relocation, often on short notice.
