Majority of parents just want the best outcome for their child and for them to develop to the best of their ability. Even though this is the case, some parents are not always exactly sure how to encourage this and for this reason might seek advice from practitioners within the setting. The better the partnership between a staff member and a parent the more comfortable they will feel in confiding in the practitioner. Parents know their own child best and sometimes what they need in order to keep them happy, Children know what they want, whilst practitioners have knowledge of general child develop. For this reason, if the relationship between parents, children and practitioners is positive and consistent the child should receive the best outcome and develop well.
It’s not the child’s fault that the parents have inadequacies and want to live vicariously through their child’s success because the parents couldn’t achieve it themselves. This concept is demonstrated when Kluger says, “parents [begin] to reach a state of emotional enmeshment with their children. ‘Parents begin to see their children as part of their own identity’, he says, ‘and their kids ' ambitions become their own.’ ” (2015, p. 58). The enmeshment of a parent to their child is not healthy and should be
As a result, family bonding is decreasing and kids are not prepared with hands on experience. Parents want to be nice, so their child will love them more and they can be the “cool dad” or “cool mom” in the child’s heart. But it should be the parents’ job to step up and do what is best for the protection of a child, which can be read in Cari Romm’s online article from The Cut, “Is It Really Possible for Parent to Be Friends With Their Kid”. Also as the world to grow wealthier, it seems children are no longer enforced with chores and responsibilities by parents possibly due to the fact that they no longer appreciate the value of money. So in result they believe that money can solve problems and responsibilities.
How much freedom and supervision should parents give their children really depends on them both. Most parents today are too overprotective. Overprotective parents can be a negative influence on their children due to the fact that they avoid going through struggles and challenges. If the parent is overprotective their children would not learn how to be independent. In the memoir The Glass Castle, Jeannette mentioned “Mom liked to encourage self-sufficiency in all living creatures.” So that way children will be able to get by on their own.
In a typical Parent-Child relationship the parental figure raises the child until adulthood and occasionally still supports him or her throughout life. According to Sophie Bloom, M.S.L.Ac, by voicing their concerns and their attitudes towards things in the world, parents greatly influence their child and their child’s development. Therefore having a parental figure while growing up is extremely important for a child or a creature's development. A parent abandoning their child can also cause severe consequences later in the child's life. According to Edward Kruk, P.h.D.
The child will learn from their mother because they think of their mother as a guardian. The mother will guide the child and he shall follow. Meanwhile, Montessori thinks that a child’s structure is by learning themselves and by improving from their mistakes. To start, Montessori wants the child “not shirk effort, he rather goes in search of it, and with great joy overcomes obstacles within his capacity”. The child will search for the answer and try to overcome the obstacle.
Since their parenting style is so different, it seems that it affects their children in a negative way throughout their childhood, but in the end it makes Jeannette become a better and more successful person. Since the Walls family is so poor and homeless it seems that Rex and Rosemary are not always there to give their children the support and comfort that kids need at a young age. Instead of giving love and comfort, they decide to teach their kids how to be tough and how to learn to do things themselves. Unlike most parents, who focus on supporting, caring for their children first, and then teaching them how to live on their own once they get much older. This attentive parenting method is not visible in the Walls’ family.
Children may also scarcely be able to visit their other parent because the cost of flying long distance can be too much for a one person income to afford. Not being able to visit or hang out with their father can have children grow distant from their father and they may not want a relationship with them later on in life. Mothers will have to come up with alternatives for their children to have a
Introducing a new addition to a family can bring about responsibility to the family of siblings, cousins, and other family members. With the initial placement of a foster it is crucial for the parents, as well as the whole family, to interact with the child/children because this is a new addition to the family and everyone’s acceptance is needed for the child to feel comfortable. This gives the child encouragement, and feel that everything is going to be alright because they will learn and know that they gained a new family. In addition to the immediate family members all remaining on one accord, a great support system is important also. One of the key ways additional support is given is via extended family, such as family and community participants.
The kids have to decide who they want to live with and they gain independence through that and by deciding when they want to see their other parent that they don 't live with. Divorced parents have a lot of independence as well as the kids, the parents get a break from the father or mother of the kids. Don 't rescue your child from a
