Can you help me understand this Psychology question?

Interview a single parent family in which a single adult is raising a child. The adult can be the biological parent, a stepparent, grandparent, or foster/adoptive parent. Contact your instructor early if you cannot find an interviewee. When conducting your interview, focus on the following:

  1. The family’s historical information
  2. Information about the family’s support system. Include natural supports (such as family members) and community supports (such as Boys and Girls Club, church, etc.)
  3. The transition to single parenting including unique issues of loss and grief the family has had to overcome

Create a genogram based on the family you interviewed.

Write a 1,000-1,250-word interview summary about the family you interviewed. Include the following in your interview summary:

  1. Challenges the child will likely experience in her/his family of origin
  2. An assessment of the single parent family, using the concepts in Chapters 1 and 2 in your textbook

SINGLE-PARENT FAMILY INTERVIEW SUMMARY

Introduction
The single parenthood family setup has increasingly grown to be a common scenario with
the ordinary day society. Factors leading to the single parenthood set up vary from one family to
another as people are faced with different pasts and histories. The given summary, in this case,
portrays information obtained from this kind of a family setup. When carrying out the interview,
a deep focus on the family history information, the family support systems, and the transition
that occurred towards the realization of single parenthood were keenly taken into consideration.
The family history and present composition are represented within a family genogram provided.
The children are similarly described to have experienced different challenges from the original
family setup that grew to be unhealthy, thereby driving the single parenthood into formation.
Despite being a challenging situation at times, entry into single parenthood becomes one of the
best decisions at times to facilitate personal and children’s well-being.
