Transcript of Copy of The Pro's & Con's of Nuclear vs. Extended Family
What is a Nuclear Family?
A politically correct nuclear family is defined as a social unit composed of two parents and one or more child
So What's an Extended FamilY?
A politically correct extended family is defined as a kinship group consisting of a family nucleus and various relatives living in one household that functions as a larger unit
PrO's OF A NUCLEAR FAMILY
dual incomes, if both parents work then the family is financially stable and can provide the basic family needs (housing, health care, food, etc)
in raising children, with agreeing on discipline and modeling appropriate behavior parents act as a team to strengthen and reinforce their children (which can be difficult in an extended family)
stronger bonds as they work together and rely on each other
With two parent households, children see what loving and caring relationships are to look like most of the time. This will translate into future success by teaching the children how to seek out positive relationships and interact well with others
