Nuclear Family
So, what’s it actually…???
 Is a family group consisting of two parents and their* children
(one or more).
* their means socially recognized
How it differs from a Joint/Extended
Family...
Nuclear family refers to a single basic family unit of
parents and their children, whereas
the extended family refers to their relatives,
as well – such as grandparents,
aunts and uncles, etc.
Advantages
…of nuclear family
Strength & stability
 Children born into a marriage tend to have more stability than children born into
cohabitation
According to Pew Research Center, 20% of kids born to married parents experience
divorce, while nearly 50% of kids in cohabiting families experience divorce
Meaning: Cohabitation- Having a sexual relationship without being married
Financial Stability Equals More Opportunity
 Many nuclear families have enough economic stability to provide children with
luxuries, opportunities, and a safe environment.
According to Pew Research Center, 57% of households with married parents were well
above the poverty line while only 21% of single-parent households were
Communication Skills
 Communication between family members in a nuclear household features fewer
obstacles and distractions
 With technological advances, these families increase communication from outside
the home
According to an analysis by Pew Internet & American Life proj., nuclear families are the
most likely of all family types to use internet and cell phones
Disadvantages
…of nuclear family
Extended Family Exclusion
 The nuclear family unit provides a strong bonding experience for immediate family
members. The smaller family size allows individualized attention towards partners
and children which creates lifelong bonds
Conflict Resolution Skills
 While less conflict and family stress is an advantage of the nuclear family,
it also puts the family at a disadvantage
 Conflict is a part of life, and conflict resolution skills are beneficial in
school, the community and the workplace
Small Support System
 Emergency situations, such as an accident or even a time of illness, can
leave small nuclear families in crisis
Conclusion
The nuclear family is preferred by many to raise
children, although the incidence of single parent,
divorced and multigenerational households are
on the rise. The choice to raise a family by the
nuclear model does not guarantee success or
happiness but can provide a basis for obtaining
those ideals.
