What is the impact of having a single child on social relations?The old generations have joint families. The kids of joint families have close family members in the form of siblings of their father. In northern India, they are called Chacha, Tau, and Bua, and their spouses are called Chachi, Tai, and Fufa, respectively. Similarly, the mother's siblings are called Mama and Mausi, and their spouses are called Mami and Mausa, respectively.
However, due to various reasons, nowadays, a few couples are adopting a single child norm. Such a scenario results in many family members or relatives missing. If only a female child is born, then there will be no Mama and Mami, and if only a male child is born, there will be no Bua and Fufa in the future.
What are your observations in this regard? Is it okay if there are no close family members or relatives?
