Theoretical Perspectives  on Families
The sociology of family is the sub discipline of sociology that attempts to describe and explain patterns of family life and variations in family structure. Functionalist perspectives emphasize the functions that families perform at the macro level of society. whereas conflict and feminist perspectives focus on families as a primary source of social inequality. Symbolic interactionists examine microlevel interactions that are integral to the roles of different family members
