Persons Comprising

a Family

2

As outlined before, most families are composed of a father, a mother, and several children. Most often the father is the breadwinner and the mother takes care of the house and the children, at least until the youngest child has started to go to school. In the long run and under the given circumstances, this seems to be the most popular and possibly the optimal solution in most nations. There is nothing intrinsically abnormal in a father taking care of the house and of the children while the mother holds a job, although this seems to be the exception. Such a couple must be prepared, at any rate, to be viewed as odd by other families or by other children; they should be aware that such evaluations by the environment may create some problems for their own children. If both parents are working, they will have to entrust their children to the care of somebody else, and thereby they will lose a portion of their parental role. Those persons who take care of the children are likely to become their psychological parents. They and their life and family situations may exert a greater influence on the children than do the actual parents and their life and family situations. 7
