In the following text, consideration will be given to how this chaos affects the perception of the importance of family ties, and thus the interpersonal relationships of members of the traditional family community and of such types of families as multi-families or alternative families. An attempt will be made to show how these transformations result in diversity in the various ranges of parental awareness and the pedagogical culture of many environments.

When addressing this topic, one should also look at the sources of changes and their consequences. Dynamic changes that are taking place in the families require not only further research, but also a new methodological approaches and cognitive strategies.
