EFFECTS OF RELATIONSHIPS ON PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
There are different types of families:
Nuclear families – parents and children living together in a single household.
§ Lone parent families – Mother or father living with the children bringing up them alone. This may be due to one parent dying or to separation or divorce.
§ Step-families – where a single parent re marries.
§ Extended families – where a family is very large and grandparents or aunts & uncles also live together with parents and children under the same roof.
