Homework Help: Cultural Diversity

Posted by Rose on Thursday, October 25, 2007 at 11:46am.

Can you help with this question?



Which of these scenarios best describes a nuclear family?

A) Jeremiah is growing up within a cluster of adults and children who maintain their own living quarters
but come together for work and meals. Child-rearing is a shared responsibility.

B) The Farrish family is comprised of ten-year-old Mary Beth and her mother who teaches at Ingleside High School.
Since Mary Beth's grandparents live
too far away to help,she goes to
after-school care until her mother picks her up after work.


C) Following an accident in which her
parents were killed,Josefina,age 6,
is taken in by her mother's sister
and brother-in-law and raised as one
of their own children.

D) Adam is a foster child currently
living with a family in which there
is a father, a stay-at-home mother,
and the couples's two children.


I know a nuclear family is a small isolated family consisting of a
father, mother,(or a single mother)
with one or two children.

I am thinking the correct answer would be: (D) Adam is a foster child
currently living with a
family in which there is
a father, a stay-at-home
mother, and the couple's
two children.

I am not real sure---- Please Help!
