This slows down family income, and agricultural productivity and reduces agricultural employment especially when land is portioned into small parts. Family-based conflicts have also a negative impact on social development because they reduce the capacity of family members to access health care, education, and shelter. Furthermore, family-based conflicts destroy the culture of mutual help and assistance between family members because when they quarrel over resources their mutual help sinks into insignificance.
