Based on your readings and resources for this week, identify one type of non-traditional family. Discuss the issues that may be encountered by raising children in this type of family structure and identify what the research says about outcomes for children growing up in this type of home. In addition to your weekly learning resources, find at least one recent news article (within the past 6 months) about the non-traditional family type you have chosen and discuss how your news article aligns or provides insight into the non-traditional family of interest. HINT: to find a news article, open Google or your preferred search engine and type in keywords like “parenting,” “families,” and your non-traditional family type. Once your search returns results, click on the “news” tab and you should see recent news stories.
An excellent response will be 2-3 paragraphs in length, well-written, and include in-text citations and a reference list. Be sure to include a reference to your news story and include the URL.
