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 self-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.
