They were also more likely to experience depersonalization--the feeling of watching oneself act without being in control of one’s actions. Querido et al (2002) conducted a study on African-American pre-schooling children found that parents using authoritative parenting style reported that the authoritative caregivers were least likely to report externalizing behaviour problems in their children. Chao (2001) suggested that authoritarian parenting may have different meanings in different cultures. Ruth Chao has argued that the Chinese version of authoritarian parenting is fundamentally different. Unlike Western authoritarian parents, Chinese authoritarian parents have closer relationships to their kids, and closeness is a predictor of higher school achievement.
Parenting styles such as Tiger mom can influence the relationships between their children and their physical activity (or inactivity). Queens College conducted a research “explaining Asian Americans’ academic advantage over whites” (Hsin and Xie, 2014). They found out that the Asian students getting greater grades were due to their effort in doing so, instead of any cognitive or socio-demographic advantage over their mates. Students were interviewed in kindergarten and in first, third, fifth and eighth grades. They analyzed their Grade Point Average (GPA) in schools where the students were in the same environment and therefore, same facilities, sources and teachers.
The support they receive from home is rated much lower by children of divorced parents than by children from intact homes, and these negative ratings become more pronounced by the time children are in high school and college. In which, we all know that high school and College were one of the stressful stage of the teenage life (Fagan & Churchill, 2012). Teenagers in divorced families receive less emotional support, financial assistance, and practical help from their parents. Divorced homes show a decrease in language stimulation, pride, affection, stimulation of academic behavior, encouragement of social maturity, and warmth directed towards the children.
Parents view the school system as a place to teach their child reading, writing, and mathematics, yet building interpersonal intelligence is considered to be one of the eight basic human aptitudes according to Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner. Children develop at different speeds; some children achieve academic excellence while others excel in relating to people and forming relationships. Shirley Vandersteen, past president of the Psychologists ' Association of Alberta believes “poor social skills put you at a greater disadvantage than poor spelling” (Cottle, 2008). It is believed that “social competence can be improved” (Readers Digest Magazine, 2010). Placing your child in daycare will not assure socialization; however, children will have the benefit of learning self-control, how to get along with others and how to share (The Blank Slate Theory in Psychology, 2010).
Racial socialization refers to messages transmitted from generational elders to the youth based on attitude, behavior, and value of identification of their racial group. In alternative terms, racial socialization is when the parent explains to their child what does it mean to be a certain race and what they should expect as a member of society. The study correlated the parenting techniques of African American, Dominican, and Puerto Rican parents and measured how each group involves cultural socialization and preparation for bias. The results of the experiment showed that cultural socialization of African Americans did not have a positive effect on their ethnic identity, while it had a significant effect on the identities of their Dominican and Puerto Rican counterparts (Hughes, 2003). However, African American parents scored the highest of the three groups on using their role to prepare their children for bias (Hughes, 2003).
Homework #2 Nurse family partnership is a program that’s offered in 43 US States, UK, Canada, Australia, and the Virgin Island that offers low income first time mothers through pregnancy. Guidance is used to help reduce pregnancy,birth complications,promote competent early caregiving,and reduce adjustment difficulties. A nurse comes 2 times a month until the child is two years of age to help with adjustment. These partnerships are considered effective because research suggests that children who were involved in this partnership had higher academic scores and less behavioral problems. Mother’s had fewer subsequent births, more contact with the father of their child, more stable intimate partners, and less welfare dependency.
However, just because they only have a mother does not mean they will end up violent. As long as their mother raises them correctly, they will be a well adjusted citizen. It is also stated that if a single mom has a child they may become poor. Robert Franklin, author of the article “Children Need Both Parents, Even after Divorce” , implies, “single mothers with children living with them are far more likely to live in poverty than is any other segment of society”. Now this may be true for single mothers who do not have a good career, but it is not true for all of them.
Burt, Brooke L. Slawinski, and Kelly L. Klump. They analyzed the anti-social behaviors of boys and girls with a hypothesis stating that antisocial behavior would be prevalent in boys rather than girls. Early report support this hypothesis, showing that girls having stronger genetic influences in females while males have a stronger environmental influences. However, both sexes have an equal chance of showing anti-social behavior, but they were not tested in subpopulations or in different situations. So a twin study was done at the Michigan State University Twin Registry on 1,030 child twin pairs.
Studies had shown that about 13,000 single people do a better job at taking care of their adopted kid than most of the couples around the world do (child welfare/single parents). The factors of taking care of the kid is hard because the kid either a baby or a youth don’t really obey the things the mom or dad say but for a baby its is understandable. Single people should be able to adopt kids so the person can give the kid a better life and show them the love they both need. Will single people actually do a better job at taking care of the kid if they could actually adopt them? Well by studies from around the world say that the majority of single
This chapter will end with a summary review. Single Parenting. A single parent is defined as only one parent that parents alone without the other parent’s support. Break ups is one of the causes of single parenting and it is a big issue worldwide. And because of that children with single
According to the 2011 ACS, (Automated Collection System), the median household income of Dane County’s African American families was $20,664, less than 1/3 the median income enjoyed by White families ($63,673). These statistics showed the problem of income disparity between black and white families. This income disparity might have negative impact in all domain of the black population life such as education, healthcare, etc.…. Years ago, United States (U.S.) Public School was one of the best places that gave opportunities to children from different background and race to come together and be educated. However, with the occurrence of income inequality among Americans, the education system has changed profoundly in the way that today there is
