Over the course of the past 8 years, Australia’s step into this current decade was also a step towards nationally evolving societal values. More specifically – Australian family values. Australia has moved beyond its traditional family values and as proven in this survey of Australian family values, is now rather getting rid of values and embracing these changes.
This national acceptance extends towards factors such as family size, the perfect age to have children, technological impacts on children and much more.
76.6% of Aussies believe that the nation’s family values are now different from the decade’s start. Furthermore, a greater consensus (78.1%) indicates that a society’s perception of what constitutes a ‘family’ has also changed. While the nation agrees that modern family values positively impact households, traditional values such as unconditional love and spending time together as a family remains of utmost importance.
The survey findings present a scope on the accepted evolutions in Aussie family values as it specifically evaluates saying goodbye to outdated stereotypes, modern-day family values, and technology impacts on family dynamics.
