Topic: In many countries today, people in cities either live alone or in small family units, rather than in large, extended family groups. Is this a positive or negative trend?
In the last decades, there is an increasingly number of single people and nuclear families rather than ones with different generations living together in big cities. In my opinion, this trend is definitely negative in some aspects.
Firstly, staying separately from family or in a small household units means having less family support. Particularly, parents in urban areas would find it difficult to take care of their children without the aid of the senior. Therefore, monthly those have to pay for childcare service from babysitters or nannies instead of being helped by grandparents. Furthermore, family traditions, such as home cooking recipes or fairy tales, could not be passed down if members do not live together.
Secondly, independent living would lead to psychological effects of less human interaction. According to a study of Oxford University, loners or even individuals of single-parent families are at greater risk of suffering from meatal illness than others due to their lacks of real contacts with grandparents as well as relatives. Those people usually struggling with work or married life in municipal centers which cannot be shared to anyone are likely to be victims of the feelings of isolation, the first stage of terrible autism.
In short, I personally believe that living in extended family groups is more positively advantageous than being single or in small households.
