Because these designer babies have healthy cells, their life span is longer than the normal ones. Third, they are intellectually enhanced. Compared to normal people, the demand of designer babies in a company will increase, they get the job while those who were born without undergoing a genetic enhancement process will loose the job because they are considered incompetent compared to designer babies. Fourth, the parents have a chance to choose the gender of their child. They will claim that it will create balance in the family but they will not realize that it will also create imbalance between the population of male and female in the society.
Impact on children The importance of fathers and the degree of contact with their children can be essential in the development of children. People go through many stages of development. According to Erik Erikson (1902-1994) who was a developmental psychologist and psychoanalyst, known for theories about the social development of man, it is important to resolve the conflicts that occur during each stage of development to be able to continue to the next stage of development. Identity develops within a psychosocial context. As the child grows up, they come in contact with a more complex social network of family, neighbors, teachers and friends, all of which have an influence on the establishment of the identity.
One of the oldest arguments in the history of psychology is the Nature vs Nurture debate. We know that both nature and nurture play important roles in human development, but we have not known yet whether we are developed majorly because of nature or due to nurture. Nature is the coding of genes in each cell in us humans that determines the different traits that we have, such as eye color, hair color, height, and many other traits. The nurture theory holds that genetic influence over abstract traits may exist; however, the environmental factors are the real origins of our behavior. This includes the use of conditioning in order to induce a new behavior to a child, or alter an unlikely behavior being shown by the child.
For many years, children growing up in a single parent family have been viewed as different. Being raised by only one parent seems impossible to many yet over the decades it has become more prevalent. In today’s society many children have grown up to become emotionally stable and successful whether they had one or two parents to show them the rocky path that life bestows upon all human beings. The problem lies in the difference of children raised by single parents versus children raised by both a mother and a father. Does a child need both parents?
Nature is the genetics in which a child inherits from their ancestors through DNA. Certain traits, such as intelligence, are proven to be passed through nature. Others however, such as anger, are debated both ways. Nurture is the external factors in one’s upbringing, including one’s environment, family, and culture. Both of these factors are proven to be the cause of a child’s disposition later in life, through the novel Frankenstein.
They may be extremely timid or a frantic fireball and that might depend on what their parents let them do and how free they feel in their life. Though a child’s personality is developed through genetics and peer grouping, different parenting styles impact their world view and the manner in which they interact with each other. There are four main types of parenting: authoritarian, indulgent, disengaged, and helicopter. All of these styles have different effects on children and how they see things. Authoritarian Parents These types of parents are usually sterner and controlling such as setting more rules around the house.
Men are normally taller and have more muscle tone or are just normally muscular, while women are normally more slim and have more curvy bodys compared to men. I believe that a great divide does exist between men and women; however, I feel that the divide comes from how we are raised as children that creates the divide as well. At a young age we are told how we should act and certain things that each gender
Another example would be if a child’s parent gets a raise or a promotion the parent will be able to give the child a better way of living. The last level of Bronfenbrenner’s ecological theory is known as the macrosystem. This level is the largest level and might not seem to have such a great affect on a child, but even though it doesn’t seem like it has an effect on a child it can be the level that has the most affect on a child. This level has a great influence on a child’s development. Like all the other levels the level can also affect a child either positive or negatively.
It is possible to affect your happiness Our happiness is conditioned by a multitude of factors that impact on us since our birth. Each of us has the ability to modify some of these factors and thus affect their happiness. Everything is connected, one pulls the other, the other pulls the third, and so on. Therefore we can say that there is a reason why someone like that a someone or that. Of course it has a bias and that despite the best education, some children become examples of unfortunate people, while others have lived next to a lot of pain fail to walk the path of happiness.
However, Scott Shane (2010) may refute Bronfenbrenner’s ideology as he believes that genes play the major role in deciding an individual’s personality and traits. One of his reasons was the experiment between twins where even though they were raised apart, eventually were drawn to the same occupations. Scott Shane does raise a valuable point, however, I still believe that genes play the role on shaping our physical traits but not mentally. You see, if a child is kinesthetically talented, obviously the child would be drawn to activities such as dancing or drawing for it is egotistical and craves attention. However, it also takes nurturing to sow the interest on the child and experiences to allow it to venture in finding its
Children come into the world as clueless, inexperienced infants. People that are involved with their life can play key roles and alter different aspects of their appearance and personality. This can ultimately change who they are as they grow older.
There has been a great deal of speculations in today’s society that each individual will become the product of their environment. One’s surroundings whether good or bad are what shapes them into becoming a role model for future generations. Although growing up in a broken home without one or both parents makes it difficult for a child to learn how to act and approach life it is still likely that they can take what they have learned from their childhood and turn it into something extraordinary. It is possible to break past the stereotype that they are a product of their environment by using past experiences to revolutionize their future. When a child is first born the first person they usually see is the doctor or midwife that has delivered
However, many questions arise when we are talking about the children who may have to be tested to verify if they are carrying the gene. Is it safe to test a child who may or may not be able to handle the information? There are lots of benefits of having a genetic test, but the negative effects outweigh the benefit. I’m against genetic testing because it causes psychological distress and financial drawbacks while growing up and it can have traumatic effects on children. First of all, the main reason not to have a genetic test on children is because it can result in psychological and emotional impact on the child and their family.
