Many descriptive words are used throughout the essay “Family Counterculture” by Ellen Goodman, to explain how hard it is to raise children. “Mothers and fathers are expected to screen virtually every aspect of their children’s lives.” This is one of the ways she defends the point that parenting has changed and has gotten harder. Even though parenting has changed “all you need to join is a child.”
Parents will always be concerned for their children. Worrying about bullies and scrapes and broken bones are a part of what makes a good parent, but fears change with the culture. Instead of being run over by a horse and buggy, parents worry about children 's self-esteem and their confidence. While a generation of feminists becomes parents, they worry about the media their children consume, most especially their daughters becoming obsessed with princesses, and the frills of prink inhibiting girls from becoming empowered members of society. Both "Cinderella and Princess Culture" by Peggy Orenstein and "The Princess Paradox" by James Poniewozik discuss parents ' concern for daughters ' infatuation with princess culture and the implications of princess culture for modern feminism; Poniewozik focuses on the steps modern movies take to promote ideals of women being feminine and strong, while Orenstein discusses older movies having characters being traditionally feminine, and therefore not strong.
Bystander effect indicates that the larger amount of bystanders the less likely any one bystander offer help, while people help others more when they are alone. The failure of the bystanders’ helping has lead more tragic events happen today. Several things are correlated with the bystander effect. Some example included the diffusion of responsibility, the majority of bystanders’responces, the ability of helping and the public self-awareness, etc (Darley & Latané, 1968a; Latané & Darley, 1968b; Rutkowski, Cruder and Romer, 1983; van Bommel, van Prooijen, Elffers and van Langea, 2012). The following four literature reviews attempt to demonstrate about the bystander effect.
Parenthood is in the eyes of many a lifelong goal; however, this goal brings great responsibilities for all those who strive to achieve it, and out of all the responsibilities for is given if they achieve this goal, teaching the sought after child in the world’s ways is one of the most important, but some parents cannot or will not do this for their child, which leads can the child on a destructive path. A great literary case of this situation is Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, in which not only does the main character Victor Frankenstein neglects his creation; he also does not take responsibility for the actions his creation over the course of the novel. Victor possesses total responsibility for his creation and is culpable of his creation’s crimes because of his
Children have an undeniable amount of innocent honesty. In the novel, “The Scarlet Letter”, by Nathaniel Hawthorne, the protagonist Hester Prynne is faced with a moral combat of adultery in puritan new england, bearing a daughter from her forbidden doing. There is a large amount of symbolism throughout this story that is played out through children.

In this course, various motherhood concepts were represented in different picture book. Motherhood is a state when the mother takes care of her children and raises them with care and love. The cognitive behavior of parents affects children in either negative or positive manner (Joan E., G, Tanya, D., 2014). Children are the mirror of their parents as they reflect them in every way.
The paternal role was the most influential for anxiety. Paternal overprotectiveness had a stronger influence on children’s anxiety (Bögels, 2011) because this overprotectiveness is more compatible with the maternal role than the paternal. Challenging parenting would fit best into the role of the father or male guardian. This would explain why paternal overprotectiveness is not compatible with paternal anxiety, since the classic male role is the instrumental role. The instrumental role is the exact opposite of the anxious parenting role as it’s defined by being assertive and independent (Majdandžić et al., 2014).
