Holding a child back from who they are just because you want them to be something different will also separate you two and can affect their future happiness greatly. In the end, new parents should try their best to not be too strict with their children and need to let their child express themselves. In conclusion, my parents were a mix of authoritative and permissive with me and my three older siblings. Their mixture of parenting styles had both positive and negative influences on my behavior as child. However, I hope I am the same way with my children as my parents were with me.

Becoming an adoptive parent means giving up your freedom. As a parent their duty is to be a role model for the child show the child the correct and mental stability that it is in.
Around half of all children born nowadays are expected to spend some time in a single parent family. Since before, people always have a perspective that children who growing up in single parent family are different compared to children who growing up with both a mother and a father. Being raised by only one parent seems unbearable to many people and up until now it has become more frequent. Single-parent families are much more common today (Parke, 2003). However, during these days, children who raised up from single parent families tend to become successful, emotionally stable and well manner.
As I mention above, there are many parents cohabitating with another partner whether they are divorced, or not. McLanahan and Osborne (2007) writes that “according to social stress theory, even “positive” events, such as getting married, forming a new partnership, or ending a bad relationship may lead to increases in stress”. Because stress may come from “positive” events in their parents’ lives, it is likely for children to show negative outcomes. If parents are not married, but they are raising a child together, it is called partnership instability. “Aside from stress, there are two alternative hypotheses for why partnership instability might be associated with children’s behavior problems” (McLanahan and Osborne, 2007).
Same sex couples are capable of raising productive members of society, due to the fact; they protect their children from bullying, meet the criteria to adoption, and seek advice to parenting children of unique circumstances. Various members of society see being bullied as unacceptable, it is also in some circumstances considered “kids being kids” by
As the factors of tantrums among children had been identified, it is easier to find the solution to this problem. However, it should be agreed that the solutions vary for each children. Some parents might have their own theory’s preference to explain their children’s behaviour thus, will always look to the theory for guidance (Mah, 2008). The biggest mistakes that parents do when their children were to throw tantrums are the parents would tend to give up and to the most extent, punish them (Wallace, 2017). According to Daniels et al (2011), the best solution for tantrums is to prevent it.
The role of parents in a child’s life is an irreplaceable one. Children are shaped by what they see their parents do and how they see them act. Children can choose to pattern themselves after what they see their parents do or they can choose to avoid being like their parents. In the story ‘Ashes’ by Susan Beth Pfeffer, Recent research shows, fathers affect the lives of their young adult daughters in intriguing and occasionally surprising ways. Ashes’ father can be mostly described as a good parent.
The effects of growing up in a family where family members are at risk for the deportation can also be understood from the perspective of toxic stress, that is, the notion that adverse experiences that upset child, parent and household, can result in biological, neurological and psychological changes. (Shonkoff, Boyce & McEwen, 2009).” Furthermore Human Impact Partners stated, “a child’s health and wellbeing is predicated upon the parent’s ability to provide family economic stability, to access needed services. Thus, it is not surprising, given the multiple stresses unauthorized parents experience, that parent, legal status is a predictor of multiple adverse outcomes for children, including emotional and wellbeing.” According to Human Impact Partners, “children who come from unauthorized immigrants has found that they are more likely going to face the following, ‘anxiety, fear, sadness, posttraumatic stress symptoms, anger and withdrawal.’”(2013; Polochnick & Perreria, 2010). Yoshikawa reports that low-income mothers face things like, “occupational stress, psychological distress, little social support and the lack of child care. Which effects a child’s cognitive development from the ages twenty-four to thirty-six months old.” Furthermore, because of the fear of being deported, families are afraid to get health care, as stated by Bean, Leach, Brown, Bachmeier & Hipp,
One 's perspective on an event can completely alter their way of life, and their levels of happiness. This in turn, will have a domino effect on their children, causing them to adapt the same way of looking at life. The power that lies within parents hands to shape their children is very important. In “Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls and “Angela 's Ashes” by Frank McCourt, it is evident that the parents way of seeing the reality that is their poverty directly affects their children. In the memoirs, Jeanette and Frankie are both able to conquer previous struggles, but Jeanette is able to do so in a more happy manner since her parents are unable to face the reality of their poverty and therefore transform her life into one long adventure, ingrained
Parental investment was used because presumably it has closer interaction compared to other casual mechanisms. This study is also focused on firstborns and laterborns only, excluding only child and twins. The study referred the parental investment to both parents and do not account the single parents. This literature is worth reviewing because birth-order affects our personality and personality can affect the way an individual interact with other people. It is also important so that parents would be aware of how the way they treat their children or for them to be able to give importance to their children fairly to avoid inequality because it will affect the child’s personality (Sampson, 1993).
