The paper discusses a number of demographic and socioeconomic changes that have occurred with the American family over the past 20 years. The changes have been extremely fast and dramatic. Consequently, traditional supports for increasingly non-traditional families are not adequate. A discussion of changes in recreation and leisure behaviors is also included. Some suggestions are given on how recreation and park providers can offer support to the changing American family.
