Natural growth is a parenting style where the child is left to carve their own path in a sense, but is left with a more reserved attitude. Some examples of this might be that they are taught to trust authority and not question it or they are more likely to make their own fun like play with the kids around the neighborhood rather than be in organized activities set up by their parents. What Lareau found through her study is that those families who were in the middle class displayed a concerted cultivation parenting style while those in the working class displayed a natural growth parenting style.

Although Bowen’s family systems theory, and Bowlby’s attachment theory are unique with their own thoughts and perceptions, both of the theories can also be taken as different viewpoints of the same human experience, specifically the development of relationship patterns and human attachment. Both theories touch upon the influence that unsolved problems in the parents may have on their children. Attachment theory focuses more on the infant’s first attachment, or primary attachment. This is usually between the mother and the infant. If the attachment is interrupted and the infant’s needs are not being met by the primary attachment, mother, this could adversely affect the infant’s cognitive and mental development as well as future attachments.
The Privileges of the Parents Margaret Miller article “The Privileges of the Parents” invalidates Paul Barton and Anthony Carnevale main ideas from their articles. Barton and Carnevale focus on the benefits that accrue to individuals from having a college education. Miller’s purpose focuses on the fact that children who have highly educated parents are more likely to have a bigger vocabulary or superior critical thinking skills than children who has parents with just a high school degree. Miller uses the rhetorical triangle which includes logic, emotion, and the writer. It can further be broken down into fallacies, tone, evidence, and authority.
Pinker believes socialization plays a role into behavior. He believes that it is peer groups who affected children more so than their families in regards to values and skills. However, he does not think that peers are why a certain child develops their personality. All this to say, children are not blank slates. Children are a product of behavioral genetics and a product of their unique environments.

They should use the money they get from people to support the daycares or families that are low income families. “The idea of government support is, or should be, to assist working citizens. Low income parents should get help with child care. Being able to work should be the goal and it encourages people to support and better themselves rather than depend on the government as much. If assistance is given with child care it may reduce the amount of other services provided.
Each individual has their own different social identity. One’s social identity is constructed based on the different influences around them. The development of social identity is influenced by various factors such as the historical, cultural and religious beliefs of the society, community or family where one is brought up. It is influenced by the behaviours and attitudes of authority figures such as parents, teachers and community leaders around them, it is also influenced by external factors such as the media, one’s peers and the overall exposure one has (Carrim, 2006, p56).

In our lives there are many factors from our past that shape who we are today. Concerted cultivation is a style of parenting that allows for the parent to schedule activities that will keep the children occupied during their free time. The idea of concerted cultivation is made clear by Annette Lareau the author of the book entitled Unequal Childhoods: Class, Race, and Family Life. She states that parents who organize their children 's lives through concerted cultivation believe that their child will obtain certain knowledge and skills that will help them and set them apart academically and socially. (Lareau, 2011)
A National Academies report found that, The quality of child care is likely to have important consequences for the development of children during the early years and middle childhood, and that because of the amount of time children spend in child care, child care provides an important opportunity to promote children’s healthy development and overall wellbeing. The report also noted that in comparison to their higher income peers, children of low-income families appear more likely to receive poor-quality child care and less likely to receive excellent quality child care, especially in the early years (Blau
There are a variety of cultural differences depicted throughout the world. Beliefs systems and social groups in our society today are based on a person’s background history, upbringing, and consciousness. One major aspect of a social group is the study of double consciousness or the internal conflict. The presence of two unconnected streams of consciousness in one individual or experienced by subordinated groups in an oppressive society in comparison to one’s own individuality or the quality that makes one person or thing different from all others. How a person feels about themselves and the intrapersonal relationship that occurs within the individual mind or self has a great impact on a person’s life.
