Adoption agencies should focus on the interest of the child and getting the child a happy home. Race matching in adoption delays the adoption processes. Even worse, some agencies continue to race-match even when it means pulling children away from different-race families to whom they have bonded (Wagner). White parents can learn to deal with racism, especially if it concerns their child. It’s crazy to think that instead of trying to find a child the perfect home, agencies are focused more on finding families of the same
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?
It’s not the child’s fault that the parents have inadequacies and want to live vicariously through their child’s success because the parents couldn’t achieve it themselves. This concept is demonstrated when Kluger says, “parents [begin] to reach a state of emotional enmeshment with their children. ‘Parents begin to see their children as part of their own identity’, he says, ‘and their kids ' ambitions become their own.’ ” (2015, p. 58). The enmeshment of a parent to their child is not healthy and should be
While talking about the child's choices referring to the future career, a lot of parents might be prejudiced and biased. Probably, not even realizing it, they do no want to let their child live his or her own life and to make his or her own decisions. On the contrary, there are families, in which parents do not support their children at all and even try to restrain the child from becoming an independent person because they are afraid of losing their only child. Gloria Watkin describes such a problem in her well-known essay Keeping Close to Home. According to the narration of her essay, her parents were increasingly opposed to the Gloria's decision to move study away from home.

In his article “Why Birthright Citizenship Is Good for America “Alex Nowrasteh gives an example of two countries who doesn’t offer citizenship by birthright that faced problems.
New parents are hard to accept, especially when the child has been passed home to home. These attachment issues may restrict the child from moving forward in their lives and excelling in the new environment provided (Robin). The lack of stability in the system is only setting up the children up for failure, according to Stone, “we treated foster children as if they were our own, yet many of them never felt as if they were.” It is difficult for young children and adolescents to comprehend the separation of their parents let alone the process of moving to multiple foster homes while under the guardianship of the state. Other children mask their hesitation at being attached to a family by letting others see only what they want to see. The children are attached, but only on a “superficial level” (Robin).
People often say that there is no correct or right way to raise a child, and yet parents face criticism all the time. What makes a good or a bad parent? Well, let’s look at the kids. Surely the difference between a musically talented, straight A student, and an average C grade student depends on their upbringing, but that is not always the truth. For some people, their way is the only correct way, and the perfect example would be from one Amy Chau, a mother of two who embraces the stereotypical “Asian parent” role and scorns the “Western” way of parenting.

Not following the ideals their parent would wish for them to do, these kids would create a path of their own, that define themselves into a social group and setting themselves apart from others. When following the ideals of white-middle class or the inner city, rather than the path that defines them apart from the others, it would
The kid’s death is already determined due to the government of their home country. This is unfair since their government is basically advertising that parents have to take control over the kid’s choices and opinions because if not, the child’s health is jeopardized. Now in the case of children whose parents are wealthier and can afford to care for their children, they continue to be powerless but they are still living unlike the majority of other
This shows how more young people opt out of taking responsibility for others, because maybe they can’t even take care of themselves, or they just don’t want to lose freedom from their life by marrying and having kids. Some might say that marrying and not having kids is not a necessity for becoming an adult. But the youth doesn’t understand what it means to have a family of their own because they never tried it, and it is more responsibility for them. According to the article Facing Challenges Is Part of Growing Up, the reporter who is also young, 28 years old, talks about how he has a kid, and it is something profound and he writes that “who reflexively dismisses marriage and family, eschews something profound: growing up”, and from here we see that taking care of someone else other than yourself, being more responsible in life is also a great experience, instead just staying single all your life, and miss out on the experience. Parents struggle with their kids, and if they wouldn’t have to feed them, they would be rich according to the article A Lifestyle Choice, but they still struggle to help their children, go all out for them, and people wouldn’t put so much effort into something for no
