The parents of Lori, Jeannette, Brian and Maureen are irresponsible. The kids have grown up without independence because they have been stuck in a life they did not choose. Sometimes it is hard for their parents to provide food and shelter for them. Their parents always say they are moving again, and the kids cannot do anything about it, but accept it. However, what their parents did teach them, was how to be smart people.
Another reason is teen pregnancy, when a single teen parent struggles between school or a job taking care of a child makes it harder. So instead of abandoning the child they choose to give the child a loving home to parents who can take care of them. Adoption can also help the birth mother by giving her a chance to receive an education or achieve other goals. There are also cases where the mother or parents per say don’t feel like they are ready or capable of taking care of the child. Children are a lot of work but do they deserve to be abandoned?
An immigrant family wants the best for everyone lives, however moving to a new country brings struggles.

My friend and I are struggling to change our mindset, from fixed mindset to growth mindset. We don’t blame our parents for that, and we can’t, because we also learn at school and at our community, which are really out of our parents’ control. Instead, we are thankful to becoming what we are and knowing that we are able to change our mindset now. I know change is hard, but it is possible and worth it. I like the quote from Mindset book, “Change can be tough, but I’ve never heard anyone say it wasn’t worth it.” (Mindset 246) It is become the biggest challenge in our life, because if we want to change our mindset, then we need to change it now while we are young, otherwise it would be too late.
We can notice students ' academic achievement are increasing when parents involve in the education of their children (Ramirez, 2003). On the other hand, some parents do not make any effort to help their children at home although "the family is the most influential context for learning" (Copple & Bredekamp, 2009). Maybe they think teachers have a better understanding of how to educate their children, therefore they avoid of becoming involved in the classroom or talking with teachers too much. As Latino parents mention that, we have to help our children in every way possible. Simply because we do not speak English very well does not mean that we cannot support our children to succeed in school.
Raising children is not easy and making sure that every child has exactly what they need to be happy and healthy can be a challenge. Living as a child of a single mother is not easy either. The narrator and Emily in Tillie Olsen’s “I Stand Here Ironing” are both flawed. Each has lived a life of hardships and fought through feelings of inadequacy. Each is working towards making a better life for themselves.
This suggests both gender roles are not going to be satisfied until they realize they need to make some changes in what they notice in a relationship. Accordingly, how parents instruct their children to act and what they should do as a woman or men causes countless troubles because parents send mixed signals. If they don’t want them to act a certain way they should enlighten them something conflicting as a child so they can grow up how they want them to be when they become older. It all starts at home. Gender roles are very much alive today, but they would not be as relevant if you teach your child gender equality at a young
There has been a great deal of speculations in today’s society that each individual will become the product of their environment. One’s surroundings whether good or bad are what shapes them into becoming a role model for future generations. Although growing up in a broken home without one or both parents makes it difficult for a child to learn how to act and approach life it is still likely that they can take what they have learned from their childhood and turn it into something extraordinary. It is possible to break past the stereotype that they are a product of their environment by using past experiences to revolutionize their future. When a child is first born the first person they usually see is the doctor or midwife that has delivered
The fact of Tiffany being first generation American proved to be difficult when trying to integrate into society. Her mother and father not being able to assimilate as quickly as her proved to be the most difficult part because they were starting their lives over completely and were learning on the spot. Growing up with parents who do not speak English well at young age in the United States seems to put a lot of responsibility on a child, which causes frustration for the child as it did in Tiffany’s case. It is interesting that she possibly saw people who looked similar to her and who were of black and white mix, but did not have a connection because her culture was completely different. In the last 15 years diversity has changed for the better
For this reason, if a child’s parents were severely not getting along, then they definitely would not be putting all of their energy into talking with their child and, therefore the child would have a harder time developing language skills. On the other hand, if a child’s parents were to split up, then that child would have two parents that, while living in different households, concentrated their time on their child. This positive interaction “with caring, responsible adults is an essential ingredient in successful development”
