begin with, in my opinion - 'NO', nuclear family system is not
responsible for the degeneration of values in our society. A nuclear
family is comparatively has lesser family members consisting of father,
mother and their children. Unlike the joint families which consist of a
large number of family members that include grand parents, parents,
siblings and their children. In joint families the concentration of the
mother on her children lacks and hence she don't find much time to
inculcate values in them to mold them into good citizens of the future.
Whereas in nuclear families, the mother who plays a key role in molding
the children into responsible individuals, enjoys the freedom of choice
and finds ample time to inculcate good values in her children.
