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.

When you are young, you have trouble making the right decisions that will possibly benefit you in the future.

It is technically the parents job to teach their kids what is right and wrong. It’s their job to keep them on the right path in life. Athletes are good for setting an example to the kids.

Because failure is not the opposite of success, failure is a part of success.

The kid can bond with them the kid will feel loved and so will the parents no matter who you are you should always feel like someone is there for and thats what these parents are tryna do for these kids “If you have no kids, wait until your foster kids call you Mom and Dad for the first time. It is an awesome feeling and you will never look at life the same.
