Thanks Wendy and Judy-This is a good site. My sociology students are
creating their own families (mother, father or less traditional with kids).
Then they have to respond to situations that are presently in the
legislature that affect families. I found bunches of great info under the
"Street Law:" section that will provide good 'fodder' for responses from
the point of view of the family they've created. This is a fun project.
Thanks for the inspiration.
