Problems of incomplete families

Divorce sta­tis­tics say that today 60% to 80% of all mar­riages fail. It is not sur­pris­ing that in such a sit­u­a­tion, an incom­plete fam­i­ly is already becom­ing some­thing com­plete­ly every­day and ordi­nary. And despite the fact that this approach pro­vides free­dom of choice in who you would like to live your life with, the prob­lems of an incom­plete fam­i­ly are obvi­ous and affect almost all areas of life.

Problems of incomplete families

To begin with, it is worth decid­ing on the ter­mi­nol­o­gy. Accord­ing to the sta­tis­tics of sin­gle-par­ent fam­i­lies, in the vast major­i­ty of cas­es we are talk­ing about the moth­er + child com­pa­ny. It is this sit­u­a­tion that we will con­sid­er.

Nowa­days, such a fam­i­ly no longer receives pub­lic cen­sure, and in this respect it has become much eas­i­er. How­ev­er, even despite this, many prob­lems remain rel­e­vant for a long time.

For exam­ple, a finan­cial prob­lem. A young moth­er will live from hand to mouth if she has to sur­vive on wel­fare alone. There­fore, as a rule, a woman goes to work, and the grand­moth­er takes care of the child, which gives rise to many com­plex­es in the baby and the feel­ing that he is aban­doned, because right now he needs mater­nal care.

Psychological problems of an incomplete family

Despite the acute finan­cial issue, the main prob­lem of an incom­plete fam­i­ly can still be called psy­cho­log­i­cal. A woman left with­out male sup­port is forced to real­ize not only a female role mod­el, but also a male one, which is not only dif­fi­cult for her­self, but also has a bad effect on the child.

It is unlike­ly that any­one will argue with the fact that it is the lifestyle of his par­ents that brings up a child. The kid, who from child­hood sees only an inde­pen­dent moth­er, learns Problems of an incomplete familyself-suf­fi­cien­cy, but not inter­ac­tion with oth­er peo­ple.

At the same time, a woman in such a sit­u­a­tion can hard­ly be called hap­py. Due to the need to per­form all the func­tions, she usu­al­ly does not have enough time to arrange her per­son­al life, which has an extreme­ly neg­a­tive effect on the ner­vous sys­tem and the lev­el of life sat­is­fac­tion. In addi­tion, a child who does not see the rela­tion­ship between moth­er and father will find it dif­fi­cult to nav­i­gate how to build his life. Girls, as a rule, absolute­ly do not under­stand how to relate to the oppo­site sex, and boys can­not under­stand how it is to behave like a man. Words nev­er give an edu­ca­tion­al effect, you can only edu­cate by per­son­al exam­ple. Sta­tis­tics show that already in adult­hood, those who grew up in sin­gle-par­ent fam­i­lies are most often divorced.
