Structure of the Family
The structure of the family can be shown by using a Family Tree diagram. A Family Tree is a chart or diagram showing generations of a family and how they are linked through the years. It explains the type of relationship that exists among members of the same family. The (triangle) symbol represents the “male” family members while O (circle) represent the “female” family members.
A family tree can be used for a Monogamous or Polygamous Family. It may represent a nuclear family or an extended family.
The above structure is the nuclear family tree of Mr. Obi, Kelechi married Ifeoma and they have three (3) female children. Nkiru is their first daughter, Chinenye is their second daughter, and Amarachi is their third daughter.
