Household Household

A household is defined as a group of individuals who live under the same roof. Generally, a household is a nuclear family, but some households also include other relatives such as an aging grand-mother or a cousin in town for college.  

Also, in reconstituted families, some children may live with their mother or their father, and this parent may also be living with a new partner who also has children from a previous marriage. With these families, the household should be defined in the genogram to clarify the situation.
