Which scenario best describes a
nuclear family?

A) Jeremiah is growing up within a
cluster of adults and children who
maintain their own living quarters
but come together for work and meals.
Child-rearing is a shared responsibility

B) The Farrish family is comprised of
ten-year-old Mary Beth and her mother
who teaches at Ingleside High School.
Since Mary Beth's grandparents live
too far away to help,she goes to
after-school care until her mother
picks her up after work


C) Following an accident in which her
parents were killed,Josefina,age six,
is taken in by her mother's sister
and brother-in-law and raised as one
of her own children


D) Adam is a foster child currently
living with a family in which there
is a father, a stay-at-home mother,
and the couple's two children.


This is what my text states about a nuclear family:


For various reasons(including economic necessity),family structures and the roles of caregivers often are different
in nonmainstream culture families.
The middle-class preference for relatively small nuclear families consisting of a mother,father(or a single mother),is unusual when compared
with families from most other
non-European backgrounds. Most cultures include maternal or paternal grandparents in the family structure,
and even aunts,uncles,cousins,and close
family friends.
By comparison,the small nuclear family
is relatively isolated. Nonmainstream
families view such family structures as lacking adequate social support for
nurturing and caretaking young children.
The reliance of mainstream families
on child care provided outside the home by relative strangers is viewed as
inappropriate.
