Escapist family life styles


In order to avoid taking responsibility for the larger society and to minimize fear of social ambiguity and personal insecurity families retreat into escapist life styles. In depth care of the individuals is thought the responsibility of outside agents like teachers, clergy and psychologist. Time is filled with shallow activities designed to avoid questions of meaning. The physical living space reflects a desire to be uninvolved. Relationships between the family and the larger society are the responsibility of individual family members. Meal times are used to meet physical needs.
