Judy Root Aulette's work "Changing American Families" challenges many of the traditionally held beliefs of what makes a family unit. This paper reviews several concepts presented in this book. First, the paper discusses childlessness by choice, and the flip-side, which is being a parent by choice. Also considered are the roles of grandparents, adoption as a parenting option, and the roles of mothers and fathers in modern society. Aulette also discusses the need for quality childcare. The paper concludes with a discussion of punishment and what it achieves for both parents and children.
