As we race through the twenty-tens, Aussies have noticed that ‘traditional’ family values are changing and, as a nation, we’re welcoming these changes with open arms! We’re more accepting of different family models, we’re getting rid of outdated stereotypes, and technology is helping our children learn more about the world.
It’s happening quickly too, with three-quarters (76.6%) of us thinking family values are different now compared to ten years ago and a similar number (78.1%) believing society’s views on what constitutes a family have also changed. The Real Insurance Australian Family Values Survey is the thirteenth instalment in a series of national studies investigating the shifting values and concerns affecting Australian families. This chapter explores how we’re embracing changes to traditional family values and how this has changed over the years.
