This is the lecture I use when we cover parenting styles and functions of a family. It coincides with chapter 3 of The Developing Child textbook. It is more of an outline style, and would require some teacher elaboration. There are opportunities for students to contribute to the discussion embedded in the PowerPoint. This lecture is amazing for multicultural classrooms- my classes always enjoy the assignment at the end and the opportunity they have to share their own family life. I would use caution if you know that students in your room don't have or live with a family and adapt the assignment accordingly.
