The importance of birth order: Rhetorical analysis in, “The Power of Birth Order, by Jeffery Kluger.” The power of birth order can affect siblings as well as the house hold children grow up in. Kluger gives many examples throughout the article and how important the birth order is. The birth order also has effect on how children enter adulthood. Different studies to back up Kluger comes from studies in the Philippines, from Norwegian researchers, and a professional from the University of Redlines, in Redlines, California. Although Kluger states.” The holes in the theories, most are agreeable.” He states that, “The birth order effect, for all its seeming robustness is not indestructible.” Kluger, the author of the article, knows exactly who the
Literary Review Definition and History Birth order contributes to why the children in the same family develop different personality traits and relationship statuses (Badger and Reddy 46). More broadly, birth order affects children mainly in two ways; “de-identification” or “social learning”. De-identification, discovered by the scientist Alfred Adler, is a process in which the child, usually later borns, exerts themselves to become different from other children, usually to gain parental attention. Inversely, social learning occurs when younger siblings imitate or model older siblings. In this case, the younger sibling will acknowledge the older sibling’s success and healthy parent- child relationship and duplicate his/her behavior expecting
A child 's poor schoolwork may be a cry for help in family relationships. If the family 's request for help is ignored, the school may be left with a refractory educational problem and an angry child who may continue to fail until someone finally gets the message. In most instances, when children fail in school, some form of family therapy is warranted. The goal of family therapy is to change structures and processes in the family or in its environment so as to relieve existing strains. Family diagnosis based on living systems theory makes it possible to determine whether pathology lies in a family as a whole, in one or more individual members, or in a suprasystein, such as an economically disadvantaged neighborhood or a school with limited resources.
Individuals who were suffering from depression had reported that they recalled more negative experiences with their parents, recalling them as uncaring and rejecting. A study done on 200 adults, 104 males and 96 females, assessed the link between depression, suicidality, and parental rejection. Through the study, it was shown that parental rejection was associated with self-critical perfectionism, which is, “an inability to derive satisfaction from successful performance, and chronic concerns about others’ criticism and performance” (Campos and Blatt 60). This is because parental rejection causes individuals to have low self-esteem and be insecure, which plays a role in the outlook that characterizes self-criticism. Self-critical perfectionism is linked with depression and suicide, which indirectly associates parental rejection to that as well.

Within many of these relationships the parents simply cannot provide enough time to their children to meet in entirety their attachment needs. Long discussed in his article disorganized attachment relationships in infants of adolescent mothers and factors that may augment positive outcomes how adolescent mothers’ due to their own young age and lack of maturity develop unclear lines of their own roles as mothers resulting in a very unorganized relationship with their child. Such disorganized relationships can result in an unreliable parent child relationship. Children of young mothers who act in this way will develop an expectation for little and far in between care. Similarly, children with incarcerated parents develop these same expectations.
Along these lines, the glow measurement needs to do with the nature of the affection and love bond amongst guardians and their kids, and with the physical, verbal, and emblematic practices guardians use to express these emotions. The flip side of the continuum Introduction to PAR Theory 2 is set apart by parental rejection, which alludes to the nonattendance or huge withdrawal of these sentiments and practices, and by the nearness of an assortment of physically, and mentally frightful practices and impacts.

Even with no factual information, according to the Child Welfare Gateway, many single people trying to adopt reported that they are more likely than couples to experience challenges in completing an adoption. The correlation challenge may be a result of the stigmatism that people grew up with, that a child deserves to have two parents. However, there are certain situations in which a child may find it easier to relate to one parent whether that is a mother or father figure. For example, “Some children who have experienced trauma or attachment difficulties may experience a high degree of consistency and emotional safety with a single-parent than with dual-parent families.” (The Adopting as a Single Parent Handbook). Children with attachment issues may lead to a lack of bondage with their birth parents which may be why they are not easily comfortable around two parents and it results in being easier for them to be adopted by a single
Avoidant adults are uncomfortable with closeness, trusting partners difficult and are uncomfortable with intimacy. Based on attachment theory, Kobak and Sceery (1 988) postulated that one’s history of regulating distress (i.e., coping) with childhood attachment figures will also carry over into adulthood. Infant separations from the attachment figure (mother) can be viewed as the first experience of coping with stress. If the childhood attachment figure has been responsive (secure), then distress can be regulated with active seeking of comfort and support if the attachment figures are not always responsive (anxious/ambivalent, avoidant), then other ways of coping must be used. Secure individuals because of their positive attachment history, effectively regulates negative affect; they acknowledge distress and turn to others for support in times of need.
