The idea of the ‘traditional’ family of Mum and Dad and the kids has changed tremendously over the last 50 years. No longer are you required to be in a heterosexual
Today’s families are diverse; culturally, genderly and ethnically mixed and should be celebrated.
In many countries around the world you can find:
* Children who are adopted and fostered and can be raised by grandparents or other relatives
* Single parents
* Families that consist of two parents who don’t live in the same house
* Children who will grow up with step parents and step siblings, half siblings and extra grandparents
* Parents/couples who can be different genders, the same gender, transgender or not identify with a gender at all
* Children who don’t identify with the gender they were assigned at birth
* Families with members who live with a disability

* Loving partnerships that bring together families from different cultures or nationalities
* Families that can be made up of a group of people who are not blood related to them at all
