There are many types of family that exists in today’s society, each important to the upbringing of any children of which may be apart of it. Whether due to economic changes, cultural values, the role of caregiver goes beyond mother and father (Kurrien & Dawn Vo, 2004). The family unit is as diverse as the societies they each represent. This sometimes can manifest traditional roles of doting mothers and providing fathers into a home with two sets of parents (Kurrien & Dawn Vo, 2004).
Although they have had a lot of trouble in finding jobs for these young mothers because they only have a high school diploma they always manage to find something. They try to help these young mothers who don’t still live with their parents find an apartment. After welfare has helped them find work they do not stop helping then. They continue giving money and other needs for a mother and her child. “Welfare helps with child care to 60% of American families with children, which proves how many single parent families we have.”(Bergman et al) The United States Government provides healthcare for a mother and her child before and after her baby has arrived.
Although six out of every ten children live with both of their biological parents (Kunz, 2013), single parent household can produce great children as well. I was able to learn a lot from my mother. She taught me skills that I will possess for the remainder of my life. While my father was in our lives, I felt that he was holding our family back from progression, but once my mom was free of him, she was able to guide us. The product of her parenting is that three of the five of us are in college, working independently, and taking care of ourselves.
However, this two-parent, nuclear family has become less prevalent, and alternative family forms have become more common. With that being said, the most successful and most efficient way to raise up a family is within the nuclear family structure.

One in three kids today in America are being raised without a father; an average of fifteen million children (America’s Families & Living Arrangements, 2013). Now the numbers are very high which makes single mothers very common in America today. A mother has a lot of pressure on herself to maintain the child, not just physically, but emotionally as well. It’s her duty to provide the child with a stable home, food, and clothing. In addition she must play both mother and father roles, give necessary attention, love, affection, and maintain a job to provide a good income.

The authors had informal interactions with the wome... ... middle of paper ... ...promising dreams, relationships often fall apart under strain from unemployment, drug and alcohol abuse, imprisonment, conflict and betrayal. Finally, we get to the heart of what marriage means to these mothers and why they say that successfully raising children is the most important job they will ever have.

Some of them are higher divorce rates, more working mothers, more homosexual families, and a huge increase in children born out of wedlock. Many argue that most of the family’s problems come from the mother working outside of the house. The fact is that working mothers is nothing new. Mothers have always done something to help out, even if it was sewing, baking, or working on the land. In today’s world it’s very hard to make ends meet with only one income.
Single parents are very common in the US. Statistics say that one out of every two children in the US will live in a single parent household at one point before they reach their adult age. “The situations of single parents vary greatly: it may be that you are divorced, widowed or never married” (all-about-motherhood.com/advantages). Being a single parent states that an individual is strong enough to carry the parts of two roles in a house. Single parents are a good influence on their children and any other individuals because they can take care of their financial problems, have greater control over their kids, and the children tend to have greater independence when living with a single parent.
Floyd Martinson (1970), states that the family including father, mother, and tyke is specified to as the atomic family. In numerous social orders, the atomic family is a piece of a major unit of family living respectively. Be that as it may, notwithstanding when huge gatherings of family live respectively, time and space is normally saved for at any rate little association of the atomic unit. As what Anonymous (2017), families are substantially more distant than gatherings of one self. They have their own particular objectives and desires.
