Abstract The relationship between parents and their children is somewhat hard to investigate. This paper will shed light on how certain personality traits held by parents can affect their children positively or negatively. Mainly, it will discuss the Authoritarian and the Eysenck Personalities and how parents who possess these types of personality can affect their children latently. The method used will be qualitative research. This research paper will depend on journals and studies published by psychology veterans.
It is human nature that step parents have a hard time expressing love or showing salacity towards children who are not biologically theirs or related to them, and it is also understandable that residing in a home with children who are not biologically yours, to help raise can be very frustrating and challenging. With that said, I support Daly and Wilson’s view on their article “Violence against Stepchildren”. However, that doesn’t mean that stepparents are solely responsible for the high rate of abuse shown towards stepchildren. Research by Richard J. Gelles and John W. Harrop shows that single parents are also highly responsible for violence towards their children. I agree that children who grow up in single parent/stepparent families are at greater risk for child abuse and violence more so, then if they were residing in a two-parent, nuclear, biological family environment.
To contribute to the psychological growth of children, parents can also be evaluated for the upbringing of their child and how their actions affect the different levels of their child’s core development system. Parents, being the most influential factor in the contribution to a child’s behavior during growth, closely monitor and filter behavior into what they consider wrong and right through different means of discipline. Discipline like this can be easily separated into two categories: reward, and punishment. Punishment, when used as a primary form of discipline, can hinder the cognitive development of their children. This can produce a psychological turmoil within the child and often leads to several forms of depression and anxiety
Lent also uses strong appeals to convey his argument. Dr. Lent also uses pathos to implicate several social complexity to evoke an emotional response to the audience, He uses phrases such as “brain development, social skills, behaviors, and even intelligence,” to reinforce how the quality of overprotective parents have it’s negative effects in their little ones day-to-day life. The author gives a sense of guilt that if parents are still choosing this path, the children will struggle in acquiring skills, acknowledge, and habits that will “leave them unable to deal with stress as adults.” Despite, the criticism the author gives, He also tries to uplift his audience through positive diction using words such as “beneficial,” and “positive” to motivate and inspire his audience how the use of acute stress will enhance a child’s growth in gross motor skills and enabling them to interact well with their surroundings. Through proper motivation the author hopes overprotective parents will gain encouragement from his argument in creating a positive climate for their
Introduction Narcissism in adults is typically caused by major factors from their childhood, especially their parents. Children with neglectful, and indulgent parents are more likely to grow up narcissistic than children with engaging, strict parents. Children with parents who hold narcissistic qualities such as entitlement and self indulgent are more inclined to gain those qualities themselves. The personality of the parent makes a huge impact on how the child functions as an adult. A narcissistic personality disorder causes a person to have an unrealistic view of themselves and expecting others to view things the same way they do.
A child suffering emotionally from their parents' divorce could develop new personality traits as coping mechanisms in an attempt to deal with their deep and lasting emotional trauma. Usually, the most common personality traits that children develop in response to the split of their parents are negative. For some children, the divorce of their parents shatters their sense of security, and makes them question their confidence in the parents' abilities make decisions that are truly in their best interest.
These children require strong connections to their teachers/carers and they are ill equipped to form appropriate relationships in the early stages of intervention. The children come to new relationships with multi-faceted problems. On the one hand they are extremely needy yet they are extremely suspicious of those who offer friendship. They will be reluctant to trust anyone because of their history of being let down or rejected. However their fundamental need to form attachments will drive them into unhealthy coalitions with inappropriate peers or exploitative adults whose method of relating is at least familiar.
The definition of abuse coincided with the definition of Corporal punishment, which will cause harm to a child during the disciplining process. So the question remains, should parents use Corporal Punishment to discipline their children? Parents who use these kind of punishment to discipline their children, thinks that it is a good method for discipline them. They feel that at a specific age, kids can’t comprehend reasoning, hence, hitting or whipping is the main dialect can use instantly. These sorts of discipline are just compelling on a transient premise getting kids to stay in line or adjust their negative ways.
PARENT-CHILD INTERACTION THERAPY NAME: INSTITUTION: DATE: Question 1 Yes. I agree with the coercion hypothesis and think it is very reasonable, it reflects the common situation in many households worldwide. Where the parent in good faith tries to disciple the child by being harsh this procedure of discipline gives short-term results. (Lanier et al., 2015) As time progresses the child rebels only to get more harsh treatment and punishment from the parent. This state leaves the parent-child relationship on the rocks with a lot of tension.
Also, children can take after their parents’ unhappiness. They will see and feel the tension in the marriage, and realize that their family isn’t doing well. Some children in this situation even blame themselves, thinking that they are responsible for the damage to the
The American soldiers brought home Korean brides, arranged adoption of war orphans and sponsored students to come to the U.S. About 6,000 Students, 6,500 Brides, and 6,300 Adopted children arrived between the years of 1951 to 1954. This is just the beginning of how many have immigrated here. More than 100,000 adopted children and 100,000 brides for Americans, have immigrated here since than the Korean War. (Chang, Lai, Arguelles, 2003) 778,899 Korean immigrants were admitted between the years of 1941-1998. Korean immigration peaked in the 1980’s and admittance has steadily declined since 1987.
• Psychodynamic Theories The Psychodynamic theory explains child abuse as a “parental dysfunction.” Followers of this theory such as B.F. Steele (1987) stated that ‘the abusive parents submit their children to traumatic experiences similar to those they had endured during childhood.” Therefore, child abuse is explained as a cycle due to the parent having experienced such behaviours from their parents as a child, hence now displays similar behaviours to their child as a parent. • The Sociological Theories There has been much agreement with Steele’s approach, however, it has been criticized to the extent that abuse against children is not necessarily only due to the parents’ experiences as a child but the abuse of children can also be as a
