Seminar advice:
a) Clear, focused and accessible question e.g. do young people today see ‘parenting’ as less central
to their adult identities? The Case Against Having Children (Macleans)… why and what are the
implications? Or, are families becoming smaller and what are the implications for childhood
socialization and for society?
b) Generate discussion including connections to personal experiences, concrete mass media
examples, other courses, other social institutions

fathers; social media-Facebook; film, TV

unemployment, dual earner families, globalization, increasing racial/ethnic diversity,
loss of the middle-class, immigration
c. Consider diversities as well as deviant/unusual/exceptional examples of process e.g.
