ItemOjciec jako organizator czasu wolnego(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2008) Gębka, MikołajThe article shows that the role of the free time organiser is such a role of the father that, paradoxically, is both existent and (virtually) non-existent, depending on which aspect of the social role of the father is considered. The role does exist in the sense that it is actually realised by fathers. However, it requires that it be discovered by fathers themselves, including all its importance, which is where it almost ceases to exist, as the importance is marginalised in fathers' awareness. ItemObciążenie pracami domowymi dzieci w rodzinach wiejskich(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2008) Lachowski, StanisławThe article aims at measuring the load of housework in children. This type of work is a permanent slot in the timetable of the majority of children in rural families. For the majority of examined children housework is a regular duty, done on daily or near-daily basis. The analysis shows no statistically significant difference between younger and older children in terms of their partaking in housework, while significant difference is found between the subgroups formed by boys and girls. Children are given housework in the majority of rural families. This helps the family to function efficiently; it helps to strengthen family ties, form positive features of children's personality, and prepare them to perform family roles in their adult life. ItemWspółczesne skrypty bycia razem. Zamierzony i realizowany projekt scenariuszy ról małżeńskich(Wydawnictwo Naukowe UAM, 2008) Bieńko, MariolaProfound changes of values, norms, attitudes and behaviour within post-industrial societies have changed the nature of bonding in the marital community. Certainly, traditional ideas of marriage have been destabilised. Actual marriage is a complex mix of various types, and the mix itself may be unstable. Each couple has a preference for one or other type, either provisionally or permanently. In the contractual pattern of marriage everything depends on the benefits that each spouse will derive from the relationship. Combining many roles (of a parent, friend, sexual partner) certainly requires social acceptance and policies to enable their satisfactory fulfillment. Simultaneously, popular beliefs and scholary paradigms stress that multiple roles in a couple are not clearly defined. Contemporarily we may observe the women's and men's traditional marital domains permeate and complement each other. The article presents a report of empirical study on expectation and realisation of marital roles. This piece of research is part of a project focusing on the perception of marital friendship. The results of the study revealed a descriptive map of similarities and differences in attitude toward the construction of spouse's identity. ItemRodzina i młodzież.
