Negative effects of the nuclear family

Experimental visualization of narrower problems
Negative effects of the nuclear family include the isolation and emotional dependency of the husband-wife and parent-child relationship, which produces tensions and may lead to marriage breakdown in the former instance and juvenile delinquency and other juvenile problems in the latter. The nuclear family so far as it excludes other family members who are integrated into the extended family, tends to neglect the needy, such as the aged, poor, handicapped; and tends to aspire in a competitive manner towards material well-being and status for itself. The acquisition of status symbols which characterizes the nuclear family leads to a wastage of resources and artificial values with a strong emphasis on class consciousness.
