                        Notion: The idea of progress


I’m going to deal with the notion “Idea of progress”. First of all, I’d like to state a definition of “Progress”.                                                                                  Progress is the idea that the world and the society can evolve in terms of sciences, technology, modernization, living condition, etc. However, the idea of progress is still debated between those who consider that it’s beneficial and those for whom it’s harmful.                                                                                                             We may wonder to what extend “How does the evolution of society influence family structures?”

To answer this question, we will start by the traditional family then became modern family in the time since 1950.


The idea of progress consist in believing that the world can become better in terms of art, sciences, technology, liberty and quality of life.

I/ Traditional families

 First, in the nuclear American family, right after The Great Depression and World War 2, we could have a couple compose of a man the chief of family, his wife and 2 or 3 children in a small family. Children could sometime to be boring because it was not funny to play with her sister or brother.

But they are really satisfied by their parents such as gift or give them anything they want.

II/ Modern family structures                                                                  

However, nowadays structure of family has changed. We have mainly studied “questions about blending families”, new type of family have emerged such as blended family or step-family and no one said it could be an easy thing because when you have step-children the problems seem small but when they grow right along with your own children, he can resulted of side effect of a step family for instance to cry or to fight for nothing. But being part of  a big family can be great because they have fun together, they don’t need to find friend outside to play  games.


In brief, we should not fear progress but we must be cautious because it’s not everyone whom is agree with new types of families such as blended families, step family, same-sex parents, unmarried couples, side effect of  step-family can come when you don’t see it.

To my mind, progress can be a good thing for the society, we can’t stay in the past, things changes, people too, we can’t say it’s a bad thing because in the religion a man must love a girl and girl must love a man, like proverb tell “the heart has its reasons which reason knows nothing
