The Catholic News continues to examine parenting areas during the pandemic.

This is the most important question in the scheme of things as they are now. Families today exist in isolation. We say that this type of family is the best family structure. We might try to build ‘communities’ but walls and fences still go up, with everyone isolated from each other, not knowing the names of neighbours and many times preventing the children from playing with each other. We call these families ‘nuclear families’. In my opinion, the disadvantages of the ‘nuclear family’ far outweigh its advantages.
