This is a nice read about the advantages of today's modern "nuclear" families. It supports the notion of the positive effects it can have on society.

Modern Family is one of my favorite television shows. Not only can I relate to a lot of issues that happen to the extended family, it is also a perfect example of the way American families have progressed.

This clip is one of the better family moments shared on the show.
