My family isn’t very big. There’s just my son and me. I’m a single parent. For the last ten years I’ve been concentrating on looking after my son James, who is now fourteen. But now I’ve met someone special and we’ve just got engaged! My fiance has four kids of his own and we’re going to get married in July. James is really excited about it; he’s looking forward to having brothers and sisters in his new step-family!
We live as one big extended family. There are seven of us in our household. Besides my husband and me and our children, there’s my aunt and two of my cousins. I stay at home and care for my mother because she’s quite old and can’t look after herself. Obviously, we suffer from a lack of space in the house, but we all get on well.

Gia đình tôi không lớn.Chỉ có con trai tôi và tôi. Tôi là một người mẹ độc thân . Trong mười năm qua tôi đã tập trung vào chăm sóc con trai tôi,James, năm nay mười bốn tuổi. Nhưng hiện nay,tôi đã gặp được một người đặc biệt và chúng tôi đã đính hôn ! Vị hôn phu của tôi có bốn người con riêng và chúng tôi sẽ kết hôn vào tháng Bảy. James thực sự vui mừng về điều đó, nó mong có anh chị em trong gia đình mới của mình!

Chúng tôi sống như một đại gia đình lớn. Bảy người chúng tôi sống trong 1 hộ.Bên cạnh tôi,chồng tôi và các con,còn có cô và hai người anh em họ của tôi. Tôi ở nhà và chăm sóc cho mẹ tôi bởi vì bà đã khá già và không thể tự chăm sóc mình. Rõ ràng, chúng tôi bị thiếu không gian trong ngôi nhà,nhưng tất cả chúng tôi đều cảm thấy ổn.

2     Parenting is a difficult job because no two children are ever the same.
3     Families are important because they form the basis for socialisation. Additionally, they educate and protect the next generation.

5     Many argue that less traditional structures are not as effective. However, there is little evidence to support this.
6     Many people are having families Later in life. Consequently, the rise in the number of single people may only be temporary.

As we have seen, changes in the structure of the family are constantly occurring: extended to nuclear, patrifocal to a more equal footing between the sexes, and dual parenting to single parenting. However. a recent phenomenon in the UK which is changing the traditional family is the increasing number of adults who continue to live with their parents until their thirties or sometimes even their forties. The UK has traditionally been a society where offspring leave the family home in their late teens or early twenties to set up their own home and families. But in the last twenty-five years this has decreased. Official statistics released by the Office of National Statistics show that today ten per cent of men in their early thirties still live with their parents: this compares with five per cent of women in this age range.
The reasons for this are complex and varied. It cannot be denied that some people are choosing to stay at home. Living with parents can be an easy option; food is provided, heating and electricity are paid for, and rent, if any, is minimal. However, a third of those surveyed claimed they are living with their parents because it is too difficult to get on the property ladder. House prices in the last few decades have risen dramatically; property is now five times the average annual salary, whereas it was only three times the average annual wage in the 1980s. This fact, coupled with high unemployment amongst young people, makes it virtually impossible for a single person to buy a home or even rent.
The number of students going on to higher education has also been steadily increasing. Many of these students return home after finishing their studies as a result of the student debt they have accumulated. It can take many years to pay this off, and if the burden of rent or a mortgage is added to that, it can be just too much for a young adult’s pocket.
However, help is now at hand. The government is tackling some of the problems that cause people to remain with their parents with a new scheme: the Affordable Housing Scheme. This aims to help people part buy a house or flat by making housing more affordable for first-time buyers, and possibly taking the strain away from elderly parents!
