However, on the moral grounds, this becomes the most important duty for the children on the moral grounds to at least pay a little to the efforts and hardships of their parents by helping and easing them when they grow old. The objective does not seems to be persuasive because it considers the friendship bond on the basis of favors and friends are made when individuals are adults; not helpless children. When they are kids, then their parents are with them, not their friends. Sommers believe that the traditional family values are being weakened because of the underlying issues created by the philosophers who are against the traditional values. Sommers has made use of the “special duties” that are the “duties not voluntarily assumed that devolve on specific individuals, such as kinship” (Sommers, 1993).
Parents mostly view holding back the truth from their children as a simple means of protection of their children (Bridges, 2010). Parents seek to protect their children from being hurt by information that they view their children cannot handle (Lott, 2014). Matters such as separation of parents have seen to contribute a significant share of the lies that parents feed children. Parents assume that they can withhold the truth from their children about their marital issues thinking that they will tell the truth to their children later in life when they can understand the complexity of the matter at hand. Taking this example, when the children enquire about where their parents are when they are not at home.
If parents are always busy, don’t dedicate much time to the problems of their children and don’t even try to understand their worries, their children will wind up thinking that their needs are not important.

(Kristin Zolten and Nicholas Long,
In this regard, he was against the factor of isolation, as there needs to be a role by the community and family to prevent family violence. The factor of Isolation is stated as, “The concept of the privacy of the family coupled with isolation, diminishes outside social control, lessens input from others, and increases opportunity for violence,” (Wallace, 20). When mentioning the family, he stated that parents could take drugs and drink all they want, as long as they had a support system like a family member taking care of the child they would be responsible. Mr. Wilson does not obviously condone substance abuse, but he was stating that there needed to be outside forces besides the immediate family as support like a grandparent or an aunt or uncle. He also mentioned schools as a role of prevention.
I feel like a parent should not tell their child who to date. Maybe who not too. Parents have the right to share their opinion especially when that relationship they are seeing is bad for their child. I feel like you shouldn’t date someone your family already disapproves of, because even if you hope that eventually they will approve of him/her they probably won’t you will just have lingering parents disapproval. Although it is that childs achievement to learn from the mistakes they have had.
Essay #2 Parents play a very important role in the lives of their children. If parents do it in the right way, it positively impacts children’s mental and emotional condition. One of the main characters from the short story “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” by Joyce Carol Oates, Connie, does not have that kind of relationships with her parents, with who she can share her thoughts or who to get a good advice from. The main reason of all Connie’s mental and emotional problems is that her parents do not play a good role model for her and compare with the older sister. Being parents is far more than just providing children with food and clothes.
The author likens coercion in this sense to young children being forced to attend school, although the parents do, the children are unable to understand the necessity of education.

An oblivious father speaks lowly of his daughter arguing that she “[d]oesn't know because she’s just a child…she’ll get over it” (Prom Night n.pag.). Strong opinions are not something people can simply “get over”; nor should they want to. Not only are children supposed to strive to obtain good morals, but all people should. The authority to change another’s viewpoint derives from a solid set of beliefs.
Parents lie to children; they have for countless moons, but that does not mean that they are doing it to be mean or evil. Children are innocent, they haven 't experienced the world enough to know all the atrocious parts in it. As a good parent should achieve, they try to preserve this innocence for their child; using a white lie every now and then is at times the only option. A white lie is telling an untruth, but won 't harm the person and this is what various parents have done to their kids (Ericsson 121). For example, a child may ask where a baby comes from; more than likely the parents do not want their child to know about sexual intercourse at such a young age that a lie is needed.

She is more focused on her artistic works than watching over her children. Rex and Rose Mary do protect their children when needed and despite their parenting styles, they are doing what they believe to be best. In some chapters of the book, the family experiences parentification. This is a process in which the parents look to the children for nurture and support (Anderson & Sabatelli, 2011). While the mother is doing her own things the children seem to take control and take care of each other and sometimes even their
The ways parents raise their children reflects heavily on them, from their character to their confidence. A parent who treats their children equally and enlighten them on morals and future life lessons are more likely to succeed, compared to parents who are neglectful and don’t care for their children. For example, in To Kill a Mockingbird, there are many parents with different parenting styles, all whom reflect on their children. Atticus teaches his children to view everyone as equals and explains problematic questions to them, when for example, Bob Ewell is a drunk and neglects his children. “When a child asks you something, answer him, for goodness sake.
Social class influences the experience of growing up. Middle-class and working-class parents hold different values and expectations for their children. In working class families children tend to spend their time at home or with extended family. They are more likely to grow up in neighborhoods that are less safe for children. Parents have to worry about them getting involved in gangs, getting into fights, or getting into trouble with the law. ”
The big Issues To overlook the significance of rather trivial and simple tasks as well as phrases can be a normal occurrence. Imbedded in many of these tasks and sayings can hide profound meaning and symbolism. Often times these doings, which can hold great meaning, are demonstrated by an unlikely group in society –the adolescents. In the short essay “My Children Explain the Big Issues” written by will Baker, he confirms this phenomenon’s presence through stories of his own children.
