Abstract

Less than a century ago most primary functions of life centered in the family. One by one many of these functions have moved out of the home into the factory, the school, the church and the community. In the loss of functions which held the family together as a unit, disintegration set in and numerous evidences of family disorganization began to appear. Many people today, cognizant of the role which the family still plays in implementing personalities and in sustaining social stability, are nevertheless deeply concerned with increasing evidences of family disorganization.
