In a joint family, every member takes their turn to nurture and nourish the child. Joint families are a boon to working parents or otherwise too. Children get to learn to respond and interact with others, adapt to changes and people. Raising a child in joint family also becomes a bit easier on the mother because of the whole support system. Like every coin has two sides, bringing up a child in joint family also has its own set of pros and cons.
