What “Family Culture” Do You Belong To?

The Institute for Advanced Studies in Culture published a very interesting report last year about American families. The report centers on “telling the complex story of parents’ habits, dispositions, hopes, fears, assumptions, and expectations for their children.” While there’s little in the report, specifically, about parents’ relationships with each other and about co-parenting philosophies,  the  findings are fascinating  not only because of what they tell us about our perceptions of parenting, and of childhood, but also as they impact the environment in which craft our co-parenting efforts and  vision of what parents’ relationships do, or might, or “should” look like. You can find the report here.
