The nuclear family structure is gaining a lot of popularity in recent times. According to the U.S. Census data, approximately 68% of families are nuclear families.

Most couples today prefer raising a family in this arrangement. Why?

Here are 4 advantages of living in a nuclear family:

  • Kids become more responsible - They learn to take decisions and solve problems on their own. Also, they tend to be more independent.
  • Kids are more into extra-curricular activities - With both parents working, the kids tend to spend more time learning new skills and hobbies like dancing, swimming, etc.
  • Kids learn time management - Given that they take on so many activities, they also learn to allocate time efficiently to each activity.
  • Kids get their own space - Being in a nuclear gives them privacy and time to spend with themselves. This increases self-awareness and helps them know themselves better.

Be it a joint or nuclear family, the quality of our family relationships has a huge impact on our upbringing!
