You should write at least 250 words.

Nowadays, an alteration in the household compisition  and the role that each member plays is clearly evident. The main change is seen in the size of the family and in responsibilities of a family member. This change is far more better than the previously held family ideals and structures.

The most noticable change is in the number of family members. Nowadays, people prefer to have only one child and stay nuclear. This is mainly due to the increase in cost of living , health and education. Another change , can be seen in the roles that family members play. Earlier on it was thought that it was the job/responsibility of the female to do household chores and uprbing the young. This view has changed. It is interesting to know that a recent study conducted showed that there is an increase in the number of stay at home dads who do the bove while women are the ones who earn money for thr household. Therefore, a paradigm shift has been seen in terms of structure and roles.

In contrast, ideals held by previous generations , with regards to family , has seen a massive change in ideology and has positively impacted households. Women who were previously confined to houses and chores can now be free to chase their dreams and fulfil their ambition, whilst not being looked down by society. In a survey conducted recently, families where men and women expressed these new views showed they had happier and long lasting marriges.

To conclude, recently there has been a change in the way families are organised and structured, mainly in terms of their day to day roles and size. In my opinion there is a postive change.
