“The concept of the traditional family, that is, the ‘natural reproductive unit’ of mom, pop, and the children all living under one roof, is not an immutable one.  It is a social construct that varies from culture to culture and, over time, the definition changes within a culture” (Ball, 2002, p. 68).
