The Four-Generation Family: An Inquiry

By Arthur Blum

Jewish Communal Service Association of North America (JCSA), National Conference of Jewish Communal Service, Fall 1963

The author looks at the complexities surrounding four-generation families and the different roles which must be assumed at different times by the family members. He states that this creates a situation laden with potential problems of identification and role confusion. Further complicating the picture are age-specific roles of the aged, middle-aged, and youth.
