    Do you feel that the family is under attack?

    With all the public attention to accepting everybody's different lifestyles, do you feel that the traditional family is failing in our society today?

    No, I do not feel the family is under attack. Yes, it is changing, but who is to say the way one family lives is better than how another one lives? All that matters is that they love each other.

    I don't feel that the traditional family is "under attack".  Changing?  Yes.  In more than one way.  Not necessarily failing though.

    One way, is that a long time ago, it used to be a mother and father and children.  Now it's stepparents, stepchildren, stepsiblings, and half-siblings.  You still see the occasional "traditional" mother, father, and children, but not as often as you see the other.

    Another way, is with changing values in society, family values are changing.  Each family has its own set of morals and values, and parents do not all raise their children the same way.  They didn't before either, but they at least had a "basic outline" back then of how children should be brought up.  Now they're all very different, but to say that any of this puts the family system "under attack" is a little over the top.  No parent has the right to judge how another parent raises their child.

    No Absolutely not. Althought the traditional family is not the only type any more their are many people out there who value the family life style even though they practice a non traditional personal life style.
    Many of these people are no different than the average person as far as values go. The real problem are the people who look at others and down grade them just because they are different than they are.
