First, read chapter 2, and make sure you understand how these theories are used

First, read chapter 2, and make sure you understand how these theories are used and applied in the field of Family Science.For example, the attachment theory is often misapplied; so make sure you understand how it is used when observing and explaining relationships and family dynamics.
Next, identify and describe an example you found in your own life or in the media like TV or a movie (cannot be hypothetical) that highlights the themes associated with 3 of the 9 different perspectives and frameworks. Therefore, you will present 3 examples.Each example must come from a different situation, interaction, relationship, or observation. In other words, don’t use the same interaction/relationship with for instance your parent or sibling and describe it from different perspectives.
Here are the options:Family Ecology Perspective
Family Life Course Development Framework
Structure-Functional Perspective
Interaction-Constructionist Perspective
Exchange Theory
Family Systems
Feminist Theory
Biosocial Perspective
Attachment Theory
This is not to be an arduous assignment, but to give you the opportunity to apply what you are learning to everyday life and using these different “lenses” from the theoretical perspectives presented in chapter 2 to explain and understand relational dynamics. Most students complete this assignment in 1 to 2 pages. As long as the criteria are met, the length is not an issue.__________________________________________________________________________________________________This is an example from a previous student:According to the textbook, the Family Ecological Perspective “explores how a family is influenced by the surrounding environment” (Lamanna, et al., 2018, 32). This concept can be seen from how the work of parents affects their schedules, and in turn, how that affects their children and therefore, “…although society does not determine family members’ behavior, it does present constraints for families as well as opportunities…” (Lamanna, et al., 2018, 32 ). An example of the Family Ecological Perspective can be observed in the show “Everyone Hates Chris.” The show demonstrates how a young man is impacted by his social environment. Chris’s father works long hours and as a result, Chris is always scared to get into trouble when his father gets home. The young man lives in a slightly impoverished neighborhood where his father is a mechanic. The show focuses on Chris’s life and how all of these environmental factors affect him: his father’s demanding work schedule that leaves him with an opportunity to be more influenced by his neighborhood and as a result potentially get into trouble.Upload your paper as an attachment after you have met the criteria.Be sure to follow the criteria outlined above and the expectations for written work.
In your paper, be sure to provide 3 examples that illustrate the various theoretical perspectives from chapter 2. Do not simply state the example but describe HOW the example can be explained and understood by your chosen theoretical perspective/framework.
Always use proper APA citations and textbook references when needed.
