Are we in need of redifining family?
Debate Rounds (3)
Along with this changes, the shared house/ childcare are rising in some area.
Some extremists claim 'free love', and some draw future where every children raised by government so to eliminate all sorts of discrimination in education and environment.
Examples above are little too extreme, but we are definetely in need of redefining "family".
Open for any ideas and comments!
Family- a group consisting of parents and children living together in a household.
Yes,"In most societies, the family is the principal institution for the socialization of children. As the basic unit for raising children...,"(Wikipedia, family)
As you mentioned in your argument, family is basically parents and children. And system for preservating the species.
Traditionally, men worked for household and women were in charge of nursing children and managing the house. However it has changed, most are dual-income families. Many of them express difficulties arising from managing both working and forming a family.
As environment changed, shouldn't family concept need to be changed as well?

Reasons for voting decision: Pro made the argument that because families have problems and that families have changed into dual income, that the definition of family ought to be changed as well. However, con successfully refutes it by saying that the definition has nothing to do with pro's point since the definition only states parents and children living together, not parents and children living together without problems and non dual income. Then con makes the point that the history of families has gone way back. Con had better arguments.
