In class discussion, we had discussed many events that affected human being .We were focused on Immigrant Family in the United States because, immigrants helped make this Country as good as it is by changing Law and regulations to make America a better place, clean environment to live and work. In reading the Heartache of An Immigrant Family wrote by Sonia Nazaro, NEW YORK TIMES Tuesday, October 15, 2013; considering the experience of the Honduras family Lourdes Pineda, a single mother of two children, she sold convenience food like tortillas, plantains and used cloths door to door, but barely earned enough to feed her children, she sacrifices herself, decided to emigrates to United Stated in order to provide immediate care to the children. People all over the world flee their native origin for a decent living, some used to have a quiet living in their Native Country but, coming to paradise, The United States, what they see are deception, and humiliation. This is the story of many families who emigrated to change their live, mostly economically, unfortunately, living illegally without green card, at a time where the policy in immigration is tough, people high themselves not to get arrested by police. At this period of time. Thus, a lot immigrant been arrested and deported; Henrique was one of them, for not paying a ticket. Be an immigrant, analyzing the story of Lourdes‘s family we can see that living as illegal immigrant need a lot of courage in dealing with psychological torments enable someone to grow as human being.

Dynamics of Family Systems
Dr. Theresa Goodman
December 02, 2013
Although the importance of family in the health of today’s society has been mentioned by many health care professionals, only since the mid-1990’s has the true significance of family in the well-being of humanity been fully recognized (Friedman, Bowden, & Jones, 2003). There has been “…little attention…paid to the family as an object of systematic study in nursing” (Friedman et al., 2003, p. 4). The health status of family members is directly influenced by the family, and vice versa (Friedman et al., 2003). Just as the concept of family used in one area of nursing practice may not be appropriate or helpful for a different area of practice, the theoretical foundation of family nursing used in one area may not be applicable in another.
Family Working as a System
According to Friedman, Bowden, and Jones (2003), because the family unit is the most rudimentary unit of today’s society, “…it is the social institution that has the most marked effect on its members” (p. 4). For most, family is the most basic and lasting social connection. Family is also “…the fabric of our day-to-day lives and shapes the quality of our lives by influencing...

In human context, a family (from Latin: familia) is a group of people affiliated by consanguinity, affinity, or co-residence. In most societies it is the principal institution for the socialization of children. Anthropologists most generally classify family organization as matrilocal (a mother and her children); conjugal (a husband, his wife, and children; also called nuclearfamily); and consanguineal (also called an extended family) in which parents and children co-reside with other members of one parent's family.
Extended from the human "family unit" by affinity and consanguinity are concepts of family that are physical and metaphorical, or that grow increasingly inclusive extending to community, village, city, region, nationhood, global village and humanism.
Family is also an important economic unit. Economic aspects of family is subject of family economics branch within economics field.
One of the primary functions of the family is to produce and reproduce persons, biologically and/or socially. This can occur through the sharing of material substances (such as semen, and food); the giving and receiving of care and nurture (nurture kinship); jural ties of rights and obligations; and moral and sentimental ties. Thus,...
The world is made up of many families. Everyone lives in a unique family, and tries their best to make their lives better. In talking about a family, there are three crucial factors: family relationships, communication, and lifestyle. Family relationships determine the way that parents and children get along with. Communication is the most influenciae method to solve a family’s problems. Family members’ characters are due to the kind of lifestyle they have. Parents should become good friends with their children not just take care of them. Good communications will bring happiness to a family. A positive lifestyle helps family members to develop good habits and characteristics. A good family is developed from good relationships, proper communication, and a positive lifestyle.
Parents are the role models for their children. For example, teaching and playing with children can build a complete relationship. Nowadays, more and more family choose to teach their children at home, called homeschooling. Additionally, parents also become their children’s real teacher. Many educators think parents are not qualified to teach their children because they do not have academic knowledge, and appeal that children should study at school. Teaching of parents should concern about children’s characters and behaviors....
...As parents and families play the most important role in the lives of their children, many challenges and pressures that families face have been given increasing concern. For example, separation and divorce, family violence and financial problems. This essay will discuss the importance of effective parent/teacher partnerships in early childhood education, and focus on one particular challenge that a family may face and identify the effects that this challenge may have on children and their families. A range of relevant strategies can be used to support children and families also will be analyzed. As well as, how parent/teacher partnerships and relevant community organisations would support families with this challenge will be discussed.
‘Family’ is a meaningful and pervasive word in people’s daily life and culture. The meaning of family can vary to individuals due to regional, cultural and religious influences. According to Robinson and Diaz (2006), a family is generally perceived as a ‘natural’ expression of human biological relationships. As well as, “ for statistical purposes a family is defined as two or more people living in the same household who comprise wither a couple, with or without children, or one parent and their children” (Ministry of Social Development [MoSD], 2004, p. 19).

...Discuss the way family life has changed over a period of time
This essay explores the change in family life over time. The meaning of family or traditional family is considered to be a group a basic social unit consisting of parents and children, whether dwelling or not. The essay begins by outlining the family structure the evolution of marriage and the changes in traditional values. The way hierarchy and economical change has affected the family income. And the way technology has advanced over the years through media and communication.
This section focuses on how family structure has changed over 50 years. Marriage in the past has been seen as a union of two people safeguarding their sexual advances just for each other. Marriage is now seen as medieval practice as a modern family now make-up of couples living together outside of wedlock. Marriage figures have dropped in recent years whilst the rise in divorce and separation of families are on the rise, which have created more lone parent families. 'There were around 128,500 divorces in England and Wales in 2007 (a rate of 11.9 divorcing people per 1,000 married population)' from policy exchange.
