Everyone has an opinion and different beliefs on almost every topic, in which one of the most controversial topics is adoption. In adoption, people believe that race matters due to their ethical or cultural beliefs; however race does not matter because every child needs a loving home. Additionally, studies of multiracial families show that kids are more aware of their culture, as well as they are more like the community around them, then their ethnic background. There are many adoption agencies, and others with the beliefs that kids need to be with parents of the same ethnicity because it would provide the child with more cultural awareness, as well as it would prevent children from the danger and backlash they might get from others.

When it comes to adoption to me I believe it can either be a sad situation or a good outcome for the child, but to me having to see a child leave their parent is heartbreaking but if it is what is best for everyone than in that type of situation it is better to give the child up. Personally I do not know anyone who has done an interracial adoption but, was never against them. For me I think it would be very hard to go back and see someone you have not seen since you were given up for adoption and do not know if I could actually have the courage to do it. I think when it comes to interracial adoption you can look at it many different ways and come up with many different pros and cons when thinking about it. One negative for sure could be that you may never know your actual cultures ways and values for sure if your adopted parents are not willing to practice or even talk about where you may of came from, but in that situation it could also make the adoption a little easier on the child and also the parents who adopt the child because it could make the process go a little smoother and have the child get to know their new family more and their way of doing things.
Adoption is typically an option that is thought about when the process of conceiving a biological child is out of the question. For some couples it may be infertility, potential hereditary health problems, or that carrying a child would be dangerous to the mother and unborn child. Those are just some issues that would cause a heterosexual couple to contemplate the idea of adopting a child, but what about couples of the same-sex? Same-sex couples do not have the means to reproduce together so many opt for adoption, which sounds easy, but typically is not. Adoption is a long and hard drawn out process for any couple, but for couples that are of the same-sex, they typically get the shorter end of the stick.
Denying homosexual couples the right to adopt may be helpful to the children, however, by letting same-gender couples adopt, they receive a more stable, permanent home. Children in the adoption system or the foster care system are without parents to look up to and learn from, and that can essentially be more harmful to the child. Perhaps what children need is the love that homosexual couples have the potential to provide. They need a family. This is debated in the article titled “Adoption Bills Put Religion Ahead of Kids" when it states "I'm not approaching this from an equal protection or parental advocacy perspective.
Parent’s cannot predetermine the identity of their children, but circumstances such as the environment, quality of education, and social class that children are born into are the main influences in the construction of their identity. Some may argue that the opinions and ideas of parents are the most important contribution to their children’s identity. This could hold true when it comes to raising a child because “parents want to do what’s best” (Chua 3). Parents often attempt instilling good character values and life lessons in their children, and children can benefit greatly from these attempts, even if they do grow up in a lower class family that lives in an impoverished area. In “Sonny’s Blues,” Sonny’s had the dream of becoming a jazz musician and his father had a different plan for Sonny.
Firstly, Huh and Reid (2000) argue that talking about adoption and having racial discussions at home is beneficial for the adoptee. Their argument is supported by Liow (1994) who contends that children’s knowledge of their racial and cultural roots is important in forming their personal identities and such knowledge should be conveyed in a manner that coincides with the children’s understanding ability. Secondly, parents should teach their child how to cope with racial discrimination. Studies have shown that the inability to cope with discrimination will result in the child being unable to deal with racism in a way that protects their self-esteem and positive racial identity (Butler-Sweet, 2011). There are also other protective factors like children’s involvement in cultural activities, parents having friends or colleagues who are of the child’s race, being in racially integrated schools and living in a multi-cultural neighbourhood (Huh & Reid, 2000; Liow, 1994; Robinson,
In addition, there are many benefits to cross-sex friendship too, and this could outweigh the benefits of same-sex friendship. Early on the benefits of getting an insight of the opposite sex emerges. When children play with the opposite sex, they gain access to learning new styles of play (Helgeson, 2017). Another benefit is that it could make it easier to interact with the opposite sex if one has a better knowledge of the opposite sex. Lastly, I think one of the main benefits is to avoid jealousy and competition, which are the challenges in same-sex friendships.
I also do nothing that he should condemn all couples without children as selfish. People who opted out of having children have more time to help out in the community and help others. I don’t think that all married couples should have children because if they are not ready to have children it can destroy their marriage. I agree with the article about people have all types of different reasons why they decide not to have children. One of the most popular reasons why people decide not to have children is because of career goals, I think they feel that they would not give the time a child needs if they are working all the time.
They begin to behave in more acceptable ways in the society and adopt the ways of their parents and adults. The children at this stage are more attracted to the same sex than the opposite sex and like to spend more time with the children of same sex. To let the children successfully complete this stage, we as parents can allow the children to spend more time with their peers, give play time for the kids, let them enjoy with children of same sex, provide them proper schooling, let them enjoy their hobby, parents be a role model to children and show and tell them the laws and rules in the society. Genital stage (puberty onwards) This is the last stage of Freud’s theory of psychosexual development which emerge at the time of puberty. The child’s sexual impulses are again active in this stage and their primary focus of pleasure lies in the genitals.
The system of class differences should be changed because it is only hurting people, and that everyone could benefit from the change. More people could receive a good education and be raised in a good, stable home environment and much more. In Lareau, she brings up how White and African American middle-class children were starting to think of themselves as entitled to more things than other like opportunities and attention (Lareau, 352). It is not wrong for families to provide the best they can for their families, but it does not make them better than others, and deserving of more opportunities. I believe that if people keep believing in their entitlement then there will not be a big change in class difference, because they will feel as if something is being taken away from them.
