From the first act of the play the delicate relationship between Hamlet and King Claudius is presented. Hamlet speaks freely about his grievance of his dead father and his feelings towards his uncle, who is now his father (Shakespeare 11). His mother marrying his uncle is a difficult relationship for Hamlet to accept and process. It is clearly shown throughout the play that he thinks his mother moved on too quickly and betrayed his father by marrying his brother. Though the fact that he is his uncle plays a vital part to his relationship with King Claudius, it must also be taken into account that he is now his stepfather as well. Without the chaotic uncle-daddy situation, any ordinary relationship
As per the Army Doctrine Publication 6-22, “Toxic leadership is a combination of self-centered attitudes, motivations, and behaviors that have adverse effects on subordinates, the organization, and mission performance. This leader lacks concern for others and the climate of the organization, which leads to short- and long-term negative effects”. One would think that leadership gets better as you move up in rank in the military but I have a different take. I think is something that needs to be address in an educational manner. Regardless of the rank of the individual, soldiers in the military must complete a series of training before gaining their military occupation specialty and their rank. The United State Army foundation is structure and

Beth Walston-Dunham (2011) explains that in deciding on which parent to grant child custody, the courts usually place great consideration on the best interests of the children, before other factors. These are the interests that ensure that the child’s psychological and emotional wellbeing is upheld in the aftermath of a divorce. A divorce brings with it very dramatic changes into the lives of the children. Because of these, the courts have been tasked to examine a number of factors that affect the life and needs of the children after a divorce. The courts have majorly granted child custody to the parent who offers the most suitable parenting environment that meets the needs of the children as well as one that is least disrupts their life, (Walston-Dunham,

The strengths and resilience of African American single mothers has historically changed families and communities for the better. However, African American single mothers are often a vulnerable population at risk for poor physical and mental health with negative outcomes outweighing both their female and male counterparts (Hatcher, Rayens, Peden, & Hall, 2012). There has been numerous race comparative self-esteem studies and research on the effects of single parenthood on child and adolescent self-esteem. Yet few studies focus on the factors that impact both positive and negative self-esteem exclusively in African American mothers apart from their children. Most of what we know about the self-esteem of African Americans

The underlying heartbeat of this book is, as my heroine Margaret Sanger, said: “No woman can call herself free until she can choose consciously whether she will or will not be a mother.” Well said, Maggie. And, of course, that same sentiment applies to men and fatherhood as well.
For many young, poor women, being a mother is not always associated with marriage. Kathryn Edin and Maria Kefalas spent six years in poor communities in New Jersey and Philadelphia interviewing heterosexual women of white, black and hispanic races with an average age of 25. Their incomes were less than $16,000 a year and had few opportunities for well-paying careers, economic stability high social status or marriage. However motherhood can be chosen and is a chance to excel at something while gaining respect in their communities. These women desire to be good mothers, mothers that provide and protect their child. Young poor men have similar reasons for entering into fatherhood; they hope to be viewed as responsible and potentially redeem their part of drugs, violence and

In today's society, one of the strongest controversy in the world today is over whether or not single parents should be allowed to adopt. Some believe it is socially acceptable for a single parent to adopt a child and that “single prospective adopters of both genders can have much to offer to an adopted child” (The Telegraph Tim Ross), others think that singles should not be able to adopt. In some eyes they see that a child needs two parents so a child can grow up having a mother and father figure to look up to, and by having two parents, one can fill in the other part when one is sick or tired or so on. When looking at this argument with the use of a logic point of view it is very clear that although singles can not
