Chapter ten has three topics that are important: the value of children, young and unwed parenthood, and family size and related factors. The value of children is an important topic as it talks about many different things like pronatalism and two theories: uncertainty reduction theory and parental investment theory. Pronatalism was used in pre-industrial societies and the theories are used in modern times. Young and unwed parenthood is another topic that is important, the reason why is that there are many concerns about people that become young parents and what will happen to their children when they grow up. The last important topic in chapter ten is family size and related factors. This is an important topic as it tells about how there are effects of family size on all members of the family, about birth order and sibling relationships, and how sex control can sometimes take over when people are thinking about beginning a family.

Models of good parenting are a good topic to discuss as there are always some typical ideals that people have of a family.
