My family is a family of orientation which I was born into. I’m only eighteen and don’t anticipate having a family of procreation for a while. I would define my family as a typical nuclear family. I grew up with both my parents who worked full time and cared for me and my siblings. Both of my parents put in equal amounts both financially and emotionally into our family throughout my life. I would consider my family to be symbolic functionalism. Growing up, my parents always taught my sisters and I to be independent and how to transition into adulthood. An example of this is how my parents got my sisters and I bank accounts as early as possible to help us understand how to manage our money from a young age which I’m very grateful for. My family relates to the functionalist family because my immediate and extended family contribute towards society which is completely intertwined and takes effort from everyone.
