Abstract

This chapter summarizes prototypic forms of family functioning in East and Southeast Asian countries, and recent historical trends that have prompted a variety of family adaptations over the past quarter century. We focus on common cultural values pertaining to the family, parenting practices shaped by Confucian and Tao doctrines, cultural mores concerning central roles of mothers and fathers, and extant family support systems-with particular focus on the relevance of coparenting. Directions for future study are outlined.
