Changing Shape of Families on TV

Back in 2013, I put together a montage tracing the changing shape of families on television over the last several decades for a children’s ministry conference I was teaching at. In addition to being an insightful look into the evolution of families, if you grew up we these shows, the video is a fun walk down memory lane.  Enjoy.

This article is updated and adapted from an article originally published on Divorce Ministry 4 Kids on October 21, 2013.
