Social Class & Cultural Diversity

Each of our family experiences is influenced in some way by the social groups to which we belong. Some of these social groups involved social class or privilege. Others involve the unique cultures to which we belong. Each influences the family in various ways, most often unseen.The family, on the other hand, also influences the greater society or the groups to which we belong. Due to the sheer mass of social groups, however, it is easier to be influenced than it is to influence. An understanding of these influences allows us greater awareness of our challenges as well as our opportunities and the choices which lie before us. -Marriage & Family Eight Edition
