According to an analysis by Pew Internet & American Life Project, nuclear families are the most likely of all family types to use internet and cell phones.
This allows parents to better monitor child internet use and participate in online activities with children.
Children with these opportunities are more likely to be successful academically and socially.
The successful nuclear family provides children with consistency in caretaking.
Pew Research Center notes 57 percent of households with married parents were well above the poverty line while only 21 percent of single-parent households were.
The focus on children can be overwhelming and leave little room for parents to take care of themselves.
Overall, research suggests children in families with married, biological parents have better social, emotional and physical health than other children.
One reason for this is because married parents are less likely to abuse children.
Children born to parents with college degrees are more likely to attend and complete college themselves.
An analysis by the Council on Contemporary Families indicates educated parents are less likely to divorce and have more resources to provide for children.
