In the memoir, The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, the Walls family is considered homeless and they are constantly moving from place to place. They constantly find themselves either with a somewhat decent amount of money or at times, no money at all. Jeannette, being one of four children always follows along with and listens to her parents and eventually notices that their family does things very differently than most other families. As Jeannette explains her childhood and how she is being raised by her parents, it is clear to see how different Rex and Rosemary’s parenting style is compared to the parenting style of other parents. Since their parenting style is so different, it seems that it affects their children in a negative way throughout their childhood, but in the end it makes Jeannette become a better and more successful person.
I believe that the more authoritative parenting style was more prevalent. Although my parents are married and I lived in a traditional household, my mom plays the primary role in raising and disciplining myself and my younger brothers. My dad is the more laid back parent. My mom is the authoritative parent while my dad is permissive-indulgent. My mom is extremely strict and behavior when it comes to school work, grades, and behavior. At the same time she tries to give us free time and allow us to hang out with friends and enjoy growing up. My dad is the fun parent that lets us do anything we ask and is always laid back and rarely a disciplinarian. Since I was raised like this I think it led me to have a very normal childhood, at least during my teenage years. My mom was stricter as I was younger and became less restrictive as I got older. I am more respective towards others and more focused on my grades and find the importance in success because of my mom. I am more carefree and fun-loving because of my
The systems theory has different levels. All these levels create a unit that is used to function and work together. A family is considered a system and those interactions with each other and the environment works together to keep the family whole. Through adaptation and interdependence is one of the ways a family works together (Fennel & Weinheld, 1989). Robbins pg.35
However, the family I am staying with, rather uses the permissive parenting style. One example is, when my mother told me "no" in a situation, I knew it meant exactly that. A second "no" meant warning, a third "no" meant consequences or some sort of punishment for not listening to what she had said. The little girl I am the nanny for, doesn 't have to follow such a rule, as her parents do not mind having to repeat "no" many times to show patience and giving the girl more time to comprehend what they are asking of her. However, I catch myself struggling in such situations while I remain respectful of the parents ' wishes and parenting style it is hard for me not to act as an authoritative influence, although I know it will make some situations easier. However, I do not want to disrespect her parents and give them the impression that I think their way of parenting is completely
In the book The Glass Castle Jeannette Walls, the narrator displays her parent's parenting skills as authoritative. According to Cherry, Kendra. “Psychology: What They Are and Why They Matter.” The Four Styles of Parenting. she defines authoritative parents as being “... more nurturing and forgiving rather than punishment”.When Rex got upset about the Erma incident with the children “ I don't want to hear another word of this. Do you hear me” Walls 148. During this confrontation between the characters the dad ended up forgiving the children rather than punishing them. Since the parents are so forgiving, the article also states that “authoritative parents are responsive to their children and willing to listen to questions”Psychology: What They Are and Why They Matter.” The Four Styles of Parenting.
When an authoritarian parent takes control, it often times leads to a dysfunctional family, where conflicts arise and children gain the urge to rebel for various reasons. In Into the Wild, Jon Krakauer describes Chris McCandless as an intelligent 24-year-old graduate student who loved exploring the outdoors. One day Chris decided to hitchhike to Alaska, hoping to find a new life for himself. However, after years of experiencing a traumatic childhood, we find out that the main reason Chris hitchhiked to Alaska was to sever ties with his parents because of his father’s secret affair. Understanding the dynamics of family can help us understand how different parenting styles can affect how a child grows
My family has always been the center of my universe. They’ve taught me the importance of being united and taking care of one another—because in the end, all we truly have is each other. My parents have raised me to be a good daughter, sister, and citizen. They’ve shaped me to be respectful, responsible, and virtuous, knowing these values will last a lifetime. But above all, my parents have instilled in me an appreciation and eagerness for education.
Being in a military family had its perks. I was able to live all over the U.S., and in Japan. We travelled a lot and I got to see many beautiful countries and amazing historic landmarks. Not many people can say they have been exposed to half the stuff I have as a child during their lifetime. Also, because of the way my parents are about education I don’t take it for granted. I am fortunate enough to have worked hard my first year of college, and received an academic scholarship.
Has something bad ever happened to you in life and someone else told your story? Did they miss any important details or change a few facts to make it seem more interesting? When the media gets a hold of a topic that could potentially be a big deal to our nation they jump into action and conclusions. Most often they are quick to make conclusions to make their story seem more complete than competing stations.
I wasn’t their special baby; I was more like their problem child. Our household was run like a military base. My father barked orders while my mother reared the children. When I was a child I felt like my dad’s favorite. I played sports, dug in the dirt, played sports and just wanted to be around my dad. As time progressed and I got older and more rules applied to me. Most of the rules were made up as my dad went along and were very strict. I wasn’t very good about following such strict rules and occasionally stepped out of line. My dad had his hot buttons when it came to the rules and if I broke them it sent his mood spiraling out of control. The two biggest rules to follow were to never question my father and always do as I was told to. Easier said than done when the rules were unclear and ever changing. What was very clean and never changing were the consequences to broken rules or disobeying. The consequence to disobeying or breaking rules was my dad’s anger; the way he dealt with his anger is a whole other story. The punishments ranged from being grounded for a week to dodging a hammer as it wizzes past my head to a backhand slap to my face. I never knew what kind of day it would be but I know for sure if anyone was going to take the heat it was going to be

Through his use of language features, particularly language choice and binary opposition, Tim Winton effectively reinforces a particular parenting style and intends to position the audience to support the relationship between Albie and his father. Winton uses sensory imagery to describe Albie’s interaction with his father, as well as emotive language. Albie is shown to be comforted by his father’s presence, as the “warmth of [his father] … beside him was enough,” effectively portraying a warm, familiar and loving relationship between the two. Winton’s diction is important in developing a strong personal response. I can easily visualise their relationship, which is key in eliciting a positive response to this parenting style. A key element in

Ceballo analyzed immigrant and U.S born parents using authoritarian parenting style to encourage academic success. She emphasized on the impact of parent’s commitment, facilitation of their child’s autonomy, non-verbal expression and access to supportive faculty, to academic success of a Latino student. Ceballos interviews U.S born Latinos/as who were from low-income families and who attending Yale University as the first in their family to get a college degree. Throughout these interviews she discovered that working-class parents viewed education as the primary source for social and economical mobility. Therefore they could not directly help with academic work but were more lenient on their parenting as long style as it benefited their education.
