However, there are many different theories and opinions on the best way to raise a child as well as the amount of investments of time and effort a parent is willing to give to their child or children. This concept is broken up into four categories known as the four types of Parenting Styles; they are the Authoritarian, Authoritative, Permissive and Uninvolved Parenting. Authoritarian parents are not very affectionate. They are very restrictive, strict disciplinarians, and it is a very punitive parenting style. There is no discussion with their child and family rules and standards are not
How parents impact child development has been a long interest in the field of psychology. It is evident in recent researches that there are convincing links between parenting styles and the effects these styles have on children’s self-esteem. The term, “parenting styles” refers to behaviours and strategies used by parents to control and socialise their children (Lightfoot, Cole & Cole, 2009). According to Baumrind (1971), there are three types of parenting styles, namely authoritarian, authoritative, and permissive. It was later re-evaluated by Maccoby and Martin (1983) into four styles, which are authoritative, authoritarian, indulgent, and neglectful.
Every way that a parent goes about raising their child will have a unique result. Written by Bianca Mgbemere and Rachel Telles, “Types of Parenting Styles and How to Identify Yours” is an article outlining different approaches to parenting and the outcomes each of these approaches has. Each of these major parenting styles are classified by the “different reactions” that the “children which they are used on” harbor (Telles & Mgbemere 1). Telles and Mgbemere expand on four types of parenting styles: neglectful, permissive, authoritative, and authoritarian. Estep, Hanna, et al. utilize these same parenting styles in their study outlined in the report “THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN PARENTING STYLES, GENERAL DEVIANCE, ACADEMIC DISHONESTY, AND INFIDELITY”.
The theory looks at many aspects of the family such as atmosphere, constellation, and goals, plus, respect is given to both children and adults. In this system interventions are suggested for children and adults. The limitations of the Family Systems Theory are, too much is focused on homeostasis at the expense of change and patterns at the expense of unpredictability. Moreover, on the system at the expense of the individuals.
In my opinion, process of raising child and effects of culture are determinant in sharing the roles other than biological factors which are not able to directly influence the gender development in human-beings. Even before the birth, both females and males have a strong connection with their mothers. They begin to learn new things from their mothers since the day they open their eyes to the world. Therefore, mother’s behaviors towards their children play a crucial role to shape child’s interests and acts.
Firstly we will be focusing on Erikson’s theory of psychosocial development. He believes that the first stage of development plays out during the first year of life. This is based on the notion that as an infant grows, he/she will either develop a sense of mistrust or trust of individuals depending upon whether his/her needs for teething, food, comfort, and sleeping are met (Erikson, 1993: 33-41). He suggests that during this stage, an individual will not only gain a 'syntonic' or positive outcome in varying levels of 'trust' but will also obtain other essential virtues of " drive and hope " (Erikson, 1993: 33-41). However, we also have the "dystonic" outcome (mistrust), which a child can develop if the caregiver lacks the ability or resources to provide these basic needs (Erikson, 1993: 33-41).If a child develops too much ‘mistrust’ or ‘trust’ a maladaptation can occur which may lead to withdrawal or sensory distortion (Erikson, 1993:
Amy Tan was born in United States in 1952, only a few years after her parents moved from China. Her mother, Daisy, is actually the most influential character to her daughter’s life. She left behind her three daughters in China after divorce, and became a nurse after being remarried to John, Amy’s father. Those three daughters that Daisy had left behind became the main motive for Amy to write ‘Joy Luck Club’, after all. The Tan family belonged to a small social community in United States, which was made by Asian immigrant families to share their American Dream among themselves.
Factors of Conflict Researchers have established that some parent-child conflict is a normal part of development. However, frequent parent-adolescent conflict also has been linked to a variety of factors. (Kane & Garber, 2004). Child Factors:

Final Paper The person I chose to interview for this final paper was my mother, Peggy. I am going to start with providing a brief social history on her. Peggy was born on October 29, 1940 to my grandparents, Marie and John. She is the second of six children, and was raised in Philadelphia.
A National Academies report found that, The quality of child care is likely to have important consequences for the development of children during the early years and middle childhood, and that because of the amount of time children spend in child care, child care provides an important opportunity to promote children’s healthy development and overall wellbeing. The report also noted that in comparison to their higher income peers, children of low-income families appear more likely to receive poor-quality child care and less likely to receive excellent quality child care, especially in the early years (Blau
In 2011, Peggy Orenstein published Cinderella Ate My Daughter to examine how princess culture impacted girlhood. “What Makes Girls Girls?” is a chapter in this book that delves into the implications of sexual difference and whether or not it is rooted in biology. By studying various research projects conducted by professionals, Orenstein discovers that, ultimately, a child’s environment plays a key role in behavior. To pose the question of whether the concept of gender is inherent, Orenstein references several examples that have sparked a considerable amount of discussion about how a child’s gender expression is molded by upbringing.
I am Zainab Saleh, from Iraq. I’m currently in the United States. I wake up every morning to the voice of my seven siblings, or they wake up to mine since they’re always blame me for waking them up from a good dream they were having. First and foremost, I’m thankful to my parents because without them I wouldn’t be here. My dad sacrificed the company of his parents, siblings, and friends to give us a better life.
