(Goldsmith, 2004.) They see a child of a different ethnicity than their parents and they feel that child is not being brought up correctly because they are being brought up in another culture that is not their own. They think that it is wrong of the parents to adopt that child because they are taking the child away from its roots, where they came from, and who they truly are because of the difference in race and culture. Parents must do research and keep their children with their culture, because knowing who you are culturally has a big impact on your life. Being a multicultural family can open many opportunities.
And if one can shape public opinion, one can change the power structures that exist. Fairclough (2001, p3) uses the term ‘manufacture of consent’: if one can convince the people to accept your right to act in specific ways, then you can so act. A second sense of ‘power’ is more personal, referring to the power of individuals to influence interactions with others: allowing individuals to be more ‘powerful’ in the sense of being able to achieve their personal goals. Part of the power of an individual is personal, stemming from their mastery of linguistic skills: knowing when to speak, and how to speak. The Power of Language in Public Discourse
Consequently, parents have a profound and on-going impact on their child. When children experience failures, they automatically look to their parents when they need comfort and solace. A home in which the parental figures change does not encourage a child to trust. “This discourages the healthy development of trusting relationships which causes psychological damage such as heightened aggressive and anti-social behavior. It also inhibits a child’s ability to make wise and rational decisions” (Poulter).

Secondly, they may think that they are ready for having a child, and they want to raise a child although it has very hard responsibilities.

Chase-Landsdale and Pittman (2002) states that parents who have mental problems, are not warm and supportive of their children. This makes children unhappy and less self-confident.
The right thing would be for the mom to let her child know who she/he is, considering the child has been curious to find out about their real background. The mom for sure has feelings about her first born and probably regrets making her choice, despite the fact that she had reasons for giving her child up in the first place. The mom would be generous to give her daughter/son a chance on getting to know her. Her first born doesn’t have to accept to meet up with her/his siblings unless they all agreed
This perspective is one that seems to be the biggest problem for most people when it comes to the idea of a same-sex couple adopting a child. Even though this may be an important idea to many people, there are multiple studies that have been done that prove that just because there is not both a mother and father present does not mean that the child will necessarily suffer. Lastly there are simply some people who do not really have a valid reason for standing against same-sex adoption, other than the fact that it is something they are just not used to. For these people if they would step out of the box for a second and look at how beneficial it would be for the children in foster care if same-sex couples had a better chance at adopting or even fostering, then maybe they would realize how positive the impact would
Sex-Based Differences in Parenting Style In today’s society, scientific studies are influenced by stereotypes and beliefs related to gender when it comes to parenting. Most people believe that mothers and fathers have different roles when it comes to child rearing. In child rearing, mothers are considered to be more nurturing and comforting while fathers are considered strict and the “harsher” parent. However, this is because of the numerous stereotypes that we have, even as a young child. Some of these stereotypes cause children to more often than not go to their mothers when they need comfort, but when they need a solution to their problem, the child ends up going to the father so they can solve it.
