    I grew up with my grandparents mainly but my mum was still on the scene but my dad never was so it was like a mix of extended, nuclear and single parent family. I have no siblings. I don't feel like I've missed out on anything by not having my dad on the scene because I've got a brilliant grandpa that I class as my dad and my gran is brilliant and after a rocky relationship for most of my life, me and my mum are perfect now and just like how a mother and daughter should be

    I guess yours is nuclear because you live with your parents even though one of them is step and step siblings.

    I think extended is when you live with grandparents etc? Not too sure now lol

    Thankfully no. But had I owned shaving cream, they would probably feed me cakes iced with it.

    I have no connection to my biological family. My father cheated on my mom while she was in a planned pregnancy. My mom raised me on her own but became more nasty and toxic as I grew up. I have created a foster family with a few very VERY close friend and have become a godparent due to this. But I have also discovered after a holiday with a more casual friend that I am SCARED TO DEATH of being around a family I didn't create as I had a mini meltdown when even invited to a place.

    Hope this helps your curiosities!

    Yes. Basically, I have a brother right. So my parents will live with my brother, his wife and children. That's how it usually works in Indian culture.

    My Dad has three brothers and he's not interested in living with his Mum, harsh I know but ah well lol! However, if he was the only son then he probably would have lived with her otherwise she'll be on her own etc. He has no sisters.
