I think parenting should have risks and this over-protective parenting style is affecting the children. Children now don 't know how to think for themselves and do things on their own because their parents are always there to baby them. The author of "The Revolution Will Not Be Supervised" absolutely has the right idea when it comes to parenting. If parents took a step back and let their children handle their own problems, the children in today 's world would function totally differently. This article has definitely changed my point of view on parenting, and I hope parents get the opportunity to read this article and actually follow through with changing their
Have you ever tried to bolster a child’s self-esteem by saying “You can be anything you want when you grow up”? What if you knew that in today’s society, saying this would increase disappointment; thus faltering a child’s self-esteem later on in life. Author Leslie Garrett, who wrote the article “You Can Do It, Baby!” in 2015, talks about the common phenomena of hindering a child’s opportunity of finding satisfaction in life, by encouraging them that they will grow up to be anything they want, without limitations. Garrett utilizes rhetorical devices to promote the emotional and logical perspectives supporting her claim; however, she incorporates a handful of in-text citations from scholars, psychiatrists, and academic professionals in order to persuade the reader of the article’s credibility. Garrett begins her article by describing the mind-set of a 12 year old, Gwenyth, who tested as gifted amongst a majority of her peers at West Oaks French Immersion School in Ontario.
Having a baby can be exciting, scary and rewarding all at the same time. Every mother or father thinks their child is perfect the way they are. Imagine being able to create a baby with the selected skin color, hair, eye color that you could personally pick. This picking of your child’s traits is now becoming more and more common. A baby who’s gender and traits are picked is called a Designer Baby.
Loria, Kevin describes some of the more positive outcomes to designer babies. "Hughes asks: If a parent were to come along and want to change the genome of their child "and the goal of this is to make sure a kid doesn 't have depression or doesn 't end up obese" — interesting in theory, but likely not actually possible given the complex web of environmental and genetic causes behind those conditions — "on what ground does the state then step in?" His argument is that we don 't stop people from passing on what we consider "bad" genetic codes, things that might make a person 's life harder, so we shouldn 't stop people from trying to provide someone with a "good" genetic code. Hughes doesn 't think we 're ready to make those sorts of changes yet; he says "it 'd be perfectly reasonable for the government to prohibit genetically modifying human embryos until it 's adequately tested and shown to be safe — still quite a high bar to pass. But he thinks that genetically enhanced humans in the form of designer babies are going to happen."
The much-awaited day is almost here, dreaded by some, and anticipated by others. Potential parents may soon have the choice to tailor-make their own designer baby, that is, one whose genetic make-up has been selected in order to eradicate a particular defect, or to ensure that a particular gene is present (Designer). How appealing to design their newborn to be disease-free, brown, blue, or green eyed, blonde or brunette, female or male, athletic, musical, and intelligent! But in the bigger scheme of things, is it a good idea? There is a heated debate among scientists, bioethicists, politicians, and citizens worldwide about the limitations, if any; that should be set on genetic engineering in the human reproductive domain.
Designer babies should be allowed in our society because it will encourage to scientist get a better understanding of the human genome. Danielle Simmons,Ph.D states , “Of course, as genetic research advances, tests are continually being developed for traits and behaviors that are not related to disease. Most of these traits and behaviors are inherited as complex conditions, meaning that multiple genes and environmental, behavioral, or nutritional factors may contribute to the phenotype. Currently, available tests include those for eye color, handedness, addictive behavior, "nutritional" background, and athleticism. But does knowing whether one has the background for these non disease traits negatively affect one 's self-concept or health perception?
Abortion is usually the easy way out for an unwanted baby. (1) The baby will have birth defects. People who abort babies do not want the baby to have a medical problem and if the baby does, it isn’t good enough for them. (2) People cannot afford to provide for the baby. Another reason people abort babies is because they can’t afford to buy the necessities for the baby.
Pro-life believe that it’s not fair because once that child finds out he/she will wonder why the mother didn’t want them, or the mother if she decides to keep the baby there’s chances that the child could be abused or neglected because of the circumstances under which the child was conceived. Pro-life still believe adoption is a better idea under those circumstances. Who knows what big things that child could do in the future and you’re taking away the chance for them to become
If it is beneficial to more people then it would be considered the right decision and if the majority of the people involved would suffer then that decision is flawed. They’re many different viewpoints that needs to be taken into consideration such as: would abortion be the best choice for the mother? Is she able to properly care for the child when it is born? Will she suffer emotionally from aborting her child which will result in her regretting the decision? How would the abortion affect the father of the child?
What were they thinking? What are sets of parents thinking giving birth to a beautiful baby and naming it "Lucifer" and "Talula Does the Hula From Hawaii"? In the article, "No, You Can 't Name Your Baby Lucifer: New Zealand Releases List of Banned Names" by Lateef Mungin it states, "As the agency put it, acceptable names must not cause offense to a reasonable person, not be unreasonably long and should not resemble an official title and rank." (Paragraph 10) Parents should not be able to name their children something bizarre no matter what their reason is behind it. Would you like your child to be seen as a threat to others?
Marta Rodriguez is a victim of rape and impregnate by Roberto Ramos. Marta wants to get an abortion because she does not want to have the child. She tells Candelario and Chayo, “It’s right because Roberto did this when I did not want it.” (Benitez, 8). Candelario suggest that he will take care of the child, since he and Chayo did not have any children. Candelario 's offering make Marta decide to keep the baby.
After reading the articles,”Why We Should Think Twice About Giving Genetic Tests to Our Kids” ,by Michael White, and “Genetic Testing for Kids:Is It a Good Idea?”, by Bonnie Rochman, parents should not give these tests to their children.If the children did take the test the result would outway the benefits, they would have anxiety, and the testing doesn’t always work. One main reason that a child should not the test is ,they could have anxiety for the rest of their lives. If a child took the genetic test they could learn they have a deadly disease they don’t know about yet. This would lead to anxiety and being worried their whole life. If the child doesn’t know when the disease will hit they would worry all the time.This could ruin a child’s life.
