Topic 6 Children and family

Earlier many Norwegians lived in extended families, especially in the countryside. Today there are many different types of family: nuclear families, single parents with children, couples without children, and single people. Most people are in regular contact with their closest family, but it is not unusual for family members to live in different places in the country. Extended families often get together during big festivals and important celebrations. Finances and housing play important roles in family life, and you can read more about these on these pages.
