CE402 Unit 9 Assignment: Family Survey Results Family “A” Survey: Family “A” described their family structure as a blended culture family with the mother being African-American and the father being Caucasian. They have six children including an infant, kindergartener, second grader, fourth grader, fifth grader, and seventh grader. The children are often looked after by a grandfather who cannot drive, but otherwise is in good health. The mother and father have long commutes to work. It is difficult to help with homework. 1. How do you prefer to be contacted regarding school communications? We prefer email communication or text alerts that we can check while at work. It is difficult to attend parent conferences or make appointments for conferences. We really would like to know how our children are doing on regular basis. 2. How would you like to be involved in your child’s school? Our work schedules make it impossible to be physically present during the weekdays. We do want to be involved.

Family “C” Survey: Family “C” described their family structure as non-traditional LGBT with adopted two children who are twin 7 year olds. The two mothers work opposite shifts so the children always have one of them home. They recently moved into the community and have no immediate family nearby to help with childcare. 1.

Running head: FAMILY SURVEY RESULTS Family Survey Results Name Institution Instructor Date of Submission 1 FAMILY SURVEY RESULTS 2 Family Survey Results Part One Family A: Family A according to the survey is somehow a bigger one considering the number of children six plus the parents and the grandfather. According to the parents, their work schedule makes it difficult for them to be close to their children and help them in their academic growth. Now the challenges facing this family include a long time of absence between children and parents, lack of physical presence of the parents to monitor their children’s progress and the inability of the grandfather to drive the children to events. This family needs to create more time and be closer to children so that at least the children get to know more about not only their academic progress but also about their blended culture. Having a grandfather to take care of the children is not a bad idea, but the problem is that he cannot drive the children to various events. To overcome this challenge, the parents need to hire a driver that would drive their children to events, and in that way, it will create more space for the parents to get involved with the children considering the nature of their jobs. Also, the grandfather alone has his hands full taking care of the children and therefore is unable to read or do homework with all the six children effectively. The family, therefore, should consider having a personal trainer to the children who will greatly assist the children in reading and do their homework in the absence of their parents. This personal trainer will also be responsible for receiving first-hand school information regarding the progress of the children. FAMILY SURVEY RESULTS 3 Family B: Based on the survey conducted on family B, it seems that the major problem they are encountering is that of taking care of their disabled child. The family particularly the parents embrace high values of Christianity to the extent of dedicating most of their time, particularly on Sundays and Wednesdays in Church. However, the family finds time at night of interacting with the Children and helping them read. The challenges encountered by this particular family include the one of taking care of the disabled child and difficulties in knowing the new math. This implies that the disabled child will have a slight disadvantage as compared to the other two when it comes to physical care. Additionally, the children will access little help from their parents concerning new math. Personal phone calls from the school regarding the school communications is a perfect way of reaching out instantly to the parents followed by written communications. On the needs of the family, I think a math tutor is needed for assisting the children in knowing new math. Family C: Family C has quite an easier interaction task with their two adopted children. The guardians, (the two mothers) working in opposite shifts provides room for the children to at least interact with one of the mothers at a given time. The major challenges that this family encounter is difficulty in finding inclusive books and the unacceptability of their family structure by other parents since they live as two mothers with two adopted children. What the family needs is for the other parents around the community to accept their family style and welcome them appreciate cultural diversity. The family also needs a platform where childcare services can be provided to their adopted children whenever they want to attend to school events since they do not have immediate family members around. The family is easily accessible whenever the school FAMILY SURVEY RESULTS 4 want to contact them since they accept to be contacted through various ways including phone calls, emails, written notes, meetings, etc. Family D: Family D is a blended family incorporating four children, a single father, and a paternal grandmother. This family appears to lag behind in matters new technology since the father does not have an email address. On the other side, the grandmother speaks little English, implying that she will have a little contribution to the children’s academic development and assistance. When it comes to the parents getting involved in their children’s schooling, it seems difficult for this family since the father has a tight work and sleep schedule and therefore cannot have that time to physically being present. On the other side, the grandmother has limited mobility and English language and therefore cannot physically attend. Additionally, no one helps the children in reading and doing homework since the grandmother cannot read to them in English. This has forced the eldest child to act as a parent and assists the younger ones in reading and doing homework. The father, however, is looking forward to attending some school events and perhaps help out in some ways.

Having a grandfather to take care of the children is not a bad idea, but the problem is that
