Pathways 2006: For Better or Worse?
For Better or Worse? Understanding America's Changing Families
Thursday, June 1, 2006 7:00pm - 9:00pm
What's Love Got To Do With It?
Divorce. Unwed Motherhood. Stressed out working parents. Teens and drugs. What's happening to family life? Is marriage headed for extinction? Why does raising kids seem so hard today?
Author Stephanie Coontz has addressed these questions on Oprah, The Today Show, CNN, CBS News, and has lectured all over the United States, Europe, and Japan. The challenges we face as parents and partners today, she says, are the flip side of the gains we have won.
When a marriage works well today, it is fairer, more fulfilling, and more loving than most couples of the past ever dreamed. But the same things that make marriage so satisfying also make it more work.
Never before have parents and children spent so much time together and communicated so well. But the same things that have produced these close relationships make setting boundaries harder than in the past.
Join Stephanie Coontz as she sheds new light on the gains and losses associated with the changing American family. Parents will walk away with a new look at the modern family and how they can use that to become better parents and partners.
