The following essay contends that contemporary American society has produced a "family-hurting culture", one that encompasses three invading influences that are highly detrimental to the building of a close and solidly structured family unit. According to Pipher, these three detrimental factors are media, pop psychology and an addictive and isolating technology.
From the Paper:"It was evident within the family structures surrounding America's grandparents and great-grandparents, just as it was within the families that first gathered around the home hearths of the country's Eastern Seaboard in the years marking the infancy of the nation. It was evident yet centuries before these eras, in an age when America's natives huddled around the warmth and security tribal campfires and shared a sense of community, companionship and family unity. It was a sense of connection and a bonding of blood that the Sioux called "tiospaye", meaning "the people with whom one lives", a sense of connection that author Mary Pipher mourns the absence of in her book The Shelter of Each Other: Rebuilding Our Families (PG)."
