non-nuclear families and their children’s well-being
the effect on the growth of children as they age with one or more parent
Nuclear families are much more effective for the growth of children as the child receives the correct amount of parental roles and learning experiences that a child requires.
Families with more than one adult taking a parental or teaching role for one or more children result in a much stronger and healthier youth for a child.
Families with more than simply the parents caring for the children are healthier for a child, as even when the parents may be busy or unwell, other adults can take necessary roles in caring for children.
Families with a larger support system than simply a mother and father create a healthier emotional environment for children.
