Since they are getting praise for participation no matter the outcome, some may think that some children will not try as hard to win. They do not have the desire to win because they are taught they are winners no matter what. Therefore, they tend to underachieve at every single thing they have the chance to let off the gas. In Losing is Good for You, the author expresses, “Awards can be powerful motivators, but nonstop recognition does not inspire children to succeed. It harms them more than it benefits them.
In The Veldt by Ray Bradbury, the author shows when individuals face the power of control through family dynamics it results in the ability to present youth culture and dominance due to generational differences and the love ones parents show for their children. This is shown through the quote "but nothing 's too good for our children” and the quote "run see and come tell." She obeyed. "Wendy, come back here!" said George Hadley, but she was gone”.
From my own personal experiences, some unruly children only respect a firm spanking with the law prohibiting this practice of parenting it can cause children to go down the wrong path because they don’t have the proper respect for their parents which is where children are supposed to learn respect for an authoritative figure. As the snippet of the comment from Allison, 2014 would suggest it is necessary to spank a child this is evident when the text states “Many of the parenting books that dismissed spanking as wrong pushed that a parent should reason with a child. However, science has proven that due to brain development, it is impossible to reason with a four-year-old. A four-year-old is still developing the concept of cause-and-effect and the beginnings of understanding empathy. Only discipline, causing pain to the four-year-old (and by pain, I do not necessarily mean physical pain) teaches him/her what is allowed.” This comment backs what I stated about a child learning to respect authority.
Maybe I tried just hard enough to change the status quo of how people viewed us. If you know someone that does fit some of the stereotypes above, that does not define them as a person. When people kept talking about how being homeschooled would probably suck, and they were right. Sometimes it was terrible, but not because you do not have friends or have 50 siblings and your parents are crazy for Jesus. It was because you do not feel like you fit in and that is what teenagers desire most.
Olga Khazan, author of No Spanking, No Time Out, No Problem, writes about her interview with child Psychologist, Alan Kazdin. During the interview, Kazdin really goes into child psychology, and how typical and popular parenting methods may not prove effective on children anymore. Both Khazan and Kazdin attempt to tap into the emotions of existing parents, or parents-to-be, by giving scenarios and examples of child behavior and personal experiences. One may definitely notice throughout the text that author, Khazan, attempts to manipulate with the way that she writes. Khazan dives deep into one side of the psychology of children and the effects that discipline may have on children.
Child beauty pageants, on the other hand, do not have such fatal influence on them. It is certainly quite natural that many parents wish for their children to grow up to be “wholesome,” but children also have their own will, no matter how young they are. If they want to participate in beauty pageants, parents should not restrict them because of their unilateral desire or the social ethics. This is the very objectification of their children, which happens by overprotection. Thus, the protest that child beauty pageants should be banned does not have any logical reasons.
I felt embarrassed for getting my hopes up to high. Although trophies are a great way to make someone feel good, you shouldn't get a trophy just for showing up. Some experts say that giving trophies to everyone might send the wrong message to a child, therefore everyone should not get a trophy just for participating because trophies can lose their meaning once everyone gets one, you shouldn't get a trophy for simply doing what is asked, and kids need to learn how to make mistakes and learn from them beneficially. One reason not everyone should get a trophy is because trophies can lose their meaning when everyone gets one. On page 27 in the article “Should Everyone Get a Trophy?” the author
A last misconception is how people believe that a woman cannot be single if they have children. This is stated because civilization thinks a child need both a mother and a father to grow up well. Yes, maybe a child will have a great life with both parents, but even if the child only has one parent, they can still have an amazing life. A majority of people think that if a child only has a mother they may not grow up equally balanced and may turn into a bad kid. For example, if a male does not have a father to discipline him, he may turn into a kid that fights at school, because he does not have that discipline that he would get from a father.
All of this can put a lot of pressure on someone, rush them into something they don’t want to do and there are no good outcomes. Going to college because someone told you to is possibly the worst reason to go, not only will you be unhappy, but you will get nothing from the experience. College is not the only option, many people have wonderful, happy lives without a degree. A piece of paper will not make everything alright. It is time for people to stop listening to society and the “cool kids”.
People think that disobedience is a wrong thing to do, but what they do not know is that it is what makes them more powerful by realizing they are doing the right thing. Most of the families out there try to raise their children to be good, respectful and responsible, by teaching them that disobedience will lead them to a not suitable life. We all do not listen to our parents sometimes, because we think that we are right and that we are doing the right choices. That is a reason that disobedience may sometimes be wrong, but sometimes it could really help us in many different ways and even change a person's life. There many reasons why disobedience could be a great thing to many people.
In this instance, Rekers considered his treatment methods to be successful whereas, Murphy felt otherwise as he attempted to take his life as a teenager and later committed suicide as an adult. From this study and these academic journals, it is clear that conversion therapy does not work, yet, it is pretty ironic that non professionals are encouraging the continuation of it when professionals are banning it due to the harmful effects it has on children. Harmful situations such as using authoritative figures like parents to coerce or force impressionable children into a situation where the outcomes are only desirable by this said authoritative figures, which can only cause harm and confusion in the minds of young and easily persuaded children. This incredible irony lies flat out in the knowledge that professionals are concerned about not only the methods used in conversion therapy but also the harmful outcomes. Whereas, non professionals have almost no regard the amount of mental damage done to their patients or the possible physical self-harm and tragically
