The trend towards bringing extended families together in one household is strongly affected by variables such as the struggling economy, a hard job market, housing crunch, enhanced immigrants, parents returning to college, saving cash for a household, being unable to provide childcare or preferring to care for grandparent, elderly parents who need care, and widows or widows who can not live by themselves. Other variables include increased marriage instability, nuclear family breakdown, and parents ' remarriage. It is also becoming more crucial for grandparents and step-grandparents.

There are countless benefits for all generations to live in a multigenerational family, including:

  • The elevated amount of emotional bonding and closeness between generations is experienced by family members.
  • Grandparents provide significant role models for grandchildren's socialization. Grandchildren are learning how to look after their elders.
  • Spending time with kids can give significance and purpose to older generations ' life. The physical requirements of maintaining up with children and assisting with homework, for instance, make them feel younger, more helpful and more active.
  • Grandparents assist kids to survive the divorce of parents by providing unparalleled attention to grandchildren and assisting when they are overwhelmed by single parents.
  • Multigenerational families benefit everyone from engaged financially. They could assist care for young kids if grandparents are in excellent health and willingness. Adult kids residing in a multi-family family can save cash when they go to college, find a job or save cash to purchase their own home.
  • Family members provide steady companionship and assist to decrease stress and strain on cash.
  • Members of the family look after each other, assist each other and promote each other.
  • Bringing family members together can be a happy time for everyone in the community to share and treasure.

There are also ups and downs of multigenerational living. It can be difficult to move into a fresh family and it takes time for all involved to create changes. Family members may feel stressed with obligations like caring for elderly parents, babysitting, redefining roles, balancing the needs of different generations, space and privacy, and redistributing household responsibilities.

Not all multigenerational families experience emotional proximity at elevated concentrations. Some multigenerational families in relationships may face either important conflict or detachment. Despite the economic advantages, family connections may be strained by living in a multigenerational household.
