Statement of Problem

Do single parent families tend to be more dysfunctional than nuclear families?  

The reason I choose this topic is because I wanted to find out whether single parent families tend to be more dysfunctional or not. I also wanted to clearly define differences, advantages and disadvantages of living in a single parent family and a nuclear family.
