As children began grow, they began to make their own choices and learn to deal with the consequence of their mistakes. However, some parents will try to protect this process which can harm their child by them not accepting responsibility on their own. An article by Dr. Nathan Lents has given the audience a view about those who tend to be overprotective parents are actually not
My interviewee was uncomfortable at times talking about her family, so I wish I would have warmed up the conversation more by asking her more about her day-to-day experience with working with children. I also wish I would have asked about if she felt like she had a role as a parent to the kids in her classroom. I know from other conversations that she calls the children who she taught “her kids,” but I wonder if she would label that relationship as parent-child. If this were to be a larger scale project, I would have sub-categorized the questions as “career path, family description, parenting styles, work affecting parenting, and parenthood affecting work.” I think having categories with the freedom to jump around if the interviewee seems disinterested or disengaged from a category would have been
Poor adjustment in children may partly be due to high conflict and other problems in the family before the separation. Children who blame themselves for their parents’ fighting have also been found to be at greater risk of poor social and emotional adjustment following their parents’ separation.” Parents’ separation will not only give a negative result but it also gives a positive result. Further information about the positive and negative outcomes of parent separation will be explained as we continue to elaborate the effects of parental separation. The article explains that the things the children see affects their emotion, that leads to a bad/poor character. Making children feel that they are the reason for the break up without explaining to them how things go risks a child’s inner
People that agree with the use of physical punishment use the argument that their parents spanked them and that they turned out fine. Since their parents did it to them, they believe that this is a normal practice in raising children. This way of thinking actually contributes to a cycle of abuse that passes from generation to generation. The Journal of Family Issues mentioned a study conducted by Straus, Gelles, and Steinmetz (1980) shows that a negative effect of physical punishment involves the child repeating the same cycle of physical abuse to their child. A good example of this was when Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson was charged with child abuse after spanking his son
Child abduction can do serious moral, physical and psychological damage to a child. Also, the victim’s family may suffer from severe stress and depression. Most of the countries have strict laws against these crimes. However, parents and local guardians should take decisive actions to avoid child abduction (Alexander and Klein). The following paper analyzes the impacts of child abduction.
With a clay-like behavior, parents are able to mold their children into themselves. Center and Kemp (2002) asserted that an unsociable behavior by parents would change the children’s trait and in return have a poor social life. Usually, people with anti-social and aggressive behaviors tend to exhibit dangerous attitudes, which is most of the time taken from the parents. If aggression and verbal abuse at home were the norm, children would be surprised if they hear from a stranger that this is not the way to deal with a feud or an argument. The abnormality can become normality for children if they live in an environment that exhibits wrong behavior most or all of the
A caregiver wants to do everything to help their child succeed and flourish. Sometimes though, a caregiver questions themselves. This happens especially when a family member or friend tries to give advice. Someone tells the parent that they are going to spoil their child if they answer every cry quickly. As a mom myself I know no one wants that stereotypical, fit throwing, demon like chcild.
It is effective in a way that children would know how to manage their own behavior to a certain situation, and they may know what is right and wrong. If ever the punishment has gone beyond discipline and turned out to violence,the child’s capability of doing the things that he/she does could be discriminated nor humiliated. The frequent use of punishment may disengage into acting younger. According to Lodhi&Siddiqui (2014), corporal punishment leavepainful memories of children which are unforgettable and unhealed. The child’s development of anti-social behavior may possibly occur.Lowering of self-esteem can be a factor leading to a child’s perception that he/she is a bad person.
When he encounters old friends while out and about, they always say how much I remind them of how my father was at my age. As Harry Chapin said it perfectly in his song “Cats in the Cradle”, ”He'd say, I'm gonna be like you, dad / You know I'm gonna be like you … He'd grown up just like me / My boy was just like me”(6-50). I'm not certain about other parents, but I know mine parented me based upon their own values and morals. The people that help and teach you the most in life are your parents, and they have done the best to prepare me for college. Every day since the beginning of summer both of my parents kept on saying that I need to be looking at colleges and start applying.
