When considering the scenario about a parent requesting their toddler be fed instead of feeding himself because of their cultural beliefs my initial response would be to try to understand why the parent feels this way. Being empathetic to the parent’s wishes and putting myself in their shoes will help me to understand them better. I do not want to approach this situation like I know more than do or I am better qualified than they are. They are the family and the primary caretakers of the child so with any request they come to me with about their child, as a professional, I must approach the matter with care and respect. However, I want to understand why they made this request.
This theory was applied in Carmen’s life when she took the decision to realize the abuse was too bad in her home. She took the decision to convince her mother to leave her father and give her and her siblings a better life. Carmen was also realistic enough to realize she could not keep her un born child as her own if she decided to take to term. She knew she could not be able to afford it so she was looking for alternative solutions. Kohlberg’s Postconventional Morality Theory This theory reference to being able to develop moral principles that transcend one’s own society, such as, individual ethics, societal rights, and universal principles of right and wrong (Hutchison, 2015, pg.235).
He realizes that how he is around his grandkids affects how they will act and what he teaches them. So he decides to make it right and have good structure with parenting with his grandkids. Once this happens and they have a good parent figure in their life, it could completely change their perspective on life and how they handle it. The other part of your job as a parent is to provide “structure” for your children. “In this role, you give direction, impose rules, use discipline, set limits, establish and follow through with consequences, hold your children accountable for their behavior, and teach values.
These traditional roles have created a stronger stereotype, which exist until date. In a lot of places it is still of the opinion that the woman should be a homemaker and a mother, and the man should be earning the money to support the family. Such outdated notions reflect in certain judgments, in particular the one delivered in Kramer v Kramer. The reason why I was not particularly happy about the verdict was because of the nature of the mother itself. In my viewing all, I saw was someone who was in a bad state of mind and needed to break free.
No matter if the British villain thing was Disney’s intention in the first place or not, it is important to think about it once in a while, but obviously not all the time. As a mother, I want to raise my children, so that they are global citizens. I try to encourage their awareness of diversity, attitudes towards difference and effect attitudes may have. I think it is very important to, from a young age, make my children treat everyone equally and not exclude people based on how they speak or the accent that
Holding a child back from who they are just because you want them to be something different will also separate you two and can affect their future happiness greatly. In the end, new parents should try their best to not be too strict with their children and need to let their child express themselves. In conclusion, my parents were a mix of authoritative and permissive with me and my three older siblings. Their mixture of parenting styles had both positive and negative influences on my behavior as child. However, I hope I am the same way with my children as my parents were with me.
Parent’s cannot predetermine the identity of their children, but circumstances such as the environment, quality of education, and social class that children are born into are the main influences in the construction of their identity. Some may argue that the opinions and ideas of parents are the most important contribution to their children’s identity. This could hold true when it comes to raising a child because “parents want to do what’s best” (Chua 3). Parents often attempt instilling good character values and life lessons in their children, and children can benefit greatly from these attempts, even if they do grow up in a lower class family that lives in an impoverished area. In “Sonny’s Blues,” Sonny’s had the dream of becoming a jazz musician and his father had a different plan for Sonny.
I truly believe that it would affect different aspects of my adult life. The many values as an adult that I cherish and have helped me become who I am today have been more beneficial and influential then those values that were put on me as a child through my families religion. Ethics knows the difference between right and wrong, or as Plato put it, (Frede, 2003, para 1) “the highest aim of moral thought and conduct.” The values that an individual possesses is very important many think that wrong and right can be taught, In my personal opinion that it comes from the values that one possesses. In childhood children are brainwashed to believe in certain values and traits. Those that are teaching the values and beliefs are the ones who are influencing this child.
The right thing would be for the mom to let her child know who she/he is, considering the child has been curious to find out about their real background. The mom for sure has feelings about her first born and probably regrets making her choice, despite the fact that she had reasons for giving her child up in the first place. The mom would be generous to give her daughter/son a chance on getting to know her. Her first born doesn’t have to accept to meet up with her/his siblings unless they all agreed
As a parent their duty is to be a role model for the child show the child the correct and mental stability that it is in. Becoming a role model means helping and showing guidance and support towards the child. Coming into a new home the child might have trust issues, might be shy, a little rude, scared. Depending on what has happened to the child in the past everyone has a different background story but don’t pressure the child to open up he/she will adapt differently towards other. People can’t one day wake up and think “ I want to become a foster/adoptive parent today”.
My Legacy By Drew Gawlas I wish to leave a personal legacy to my children, one that will live on in their hearts. I do not want to leave behind something with no purpose or meaning, like a meaningless item of mine. Rather, I want to teach my children important values. Of all the wonderful things my parents have ever given me, the greatest gifts were the pieces of moral guidance that shaped me into the person I am today. The legacy I will leave for my children will be the values I teach them throughout their childhoods: compassion, hard work, and confidence.
I believe the foster care system should be changed for the better of the foster child. The system as many foster kids will say is messed up, and in fact I totally agree. The child feels that if he/she spoke up about what was going on in their “home” whether it 's abuse or other reasons they will be located right back into another home where this can just possibly happen again. The last thing any of these children is abuse and more relocation. Most of these kids just strive to be happy and in a forever home that they want to live in.
Should Jane be taken my child custody? Jane is a very good kid and for now she has adopted good qualities by her mom and her dad. But now its different, she needs help to stay in the right lane, she’s in an age where a lot of things could influence her, and could be easily manipulated. We will analyze both the behaviour of the mother and the father and take make a conclusion about how she acts and how have they affected Jane’s way of thinking. And at least we will determine the most likely future for Jane.
Plutarch has a lot of different recommendation for parents to follow so that they can live virtuous lives. The importance of training children that Plutarch is trying to get across is that parents are suppose to be the role models for children. As parents it is very important that they follow the rules because if they do not then how can they expect their children to.
