There is an increasing trend around the world to have a small family. What are the advantages and disadvantages of having a small family rather than a large one

Nuclear
families
are becoming more common globally.
Although
nuclear
families
struggle with no emotional support from extended family during difficult times, and no guidance to their
children
from the elders of the house,they will save money substantially and will be able to devote more time to their
children

families
are at a disadvantage as compared to big
families
. To conclude, though nuclear houses have become fashionably common in the modern world,

has both positive and negative points. While parents no doubt concentrate better on their
children
and save substantially for investments;

,lack of emotional support during difficult times and no proper guidance to
children
during growing years are the disadvantages in living apart from an extended family.
