English term or phrase: Living situation
The child's living situation includes 2 brothers, extended family,and parents
Rebe
entorno familiar
Explanation:
In other instances I would translate this phrase as "condiciones de vida", or as "situación actual", depending on the context. Yet, here the sentence clearly refers to the child's family situation, hence my translation as "entorno familiar", which includes the number of relatives living with the child.
