"Non-Traditional" Parenting


Recently, the Journal of Pediatrics reported that 22% of gay male couples, and 43% of lesbian couples are currently raising children. The 2011 US Census estimated that 1/4 of all same-sex households are raising children.

Single-parent households are becoming increasingly more common, as are bi-racial and multi-cultural families.

Military deployments of one or both parents of repeated and longer duration have left parents and relatives with absentee parenting issues.

More and more parents are parenting in poverty, which creates many challenges.

More grandparents are raising grandchildren than ever., due not only to deployments but often to drug-related/criminal issues.

Choose one of these scenarios (or another "non-traditional" parenting trend) and discuss the challenges presented for the caretakers/parents. Cite a website to support your commentary.
