After completing this assignment, I had a few observations from the kin chart. Both sides of my family are dominated by a gender (female on my mom’s side and male on my dad’s side) and both of my parents come from smaller families.  There is no divorce in my family tree, which is unique I think in our culture.  This post made me think about how it is such a break from the trend that my parents had so many children.  Both of them come from small families and my aunts and uncles are either not married or else are married but have one or two kids.  I want to ask my parents why they decided to have so many children when it is not the norm in my family.
