Should All Parents Attend Parenting Classes? Arguing for or against the idea might take centuries, but I will pursue you to agree with the classes by giving valid reasons. Most of our parents play a difficult job by raising up the child. No one can imagine how difficult is that unless they have experienced it. The theory behind these classes is that many parents have not been raised in families with good parenting skills so they can learn from them.
Early marriage had mainly affected young girls educationally. It can leads to illiteracy for girls. Illiteracy is the key of whole problems as it creates a way to many other difficulties like unemployment. Early marriage inhibits all young girl’s skills to keep going on with her education as leaving school tracing marriage to focalize their interests only on domestic missions and giving more attention on developing their children. Non educated people, girls and adult women have less advantages to obtain a revenue and financially insure for themselves and their children’s future.
While, it has been found that stereotype is one of the reasons that makes girls to hinder in math and other stem subjects. According to (Steel,1997)"Stereotype refers to a decrease in test performance in situations where individuals feel threatened by the possibility that their performance will confirm—to others, and/or themselves—a negative stereotype about their group abilities" (psychol,2016). Girls perform similarly to the boys throughout elementary schools or show better performance in the subjects like math, science and computer. However, things change when they step their adulthood. Studies show that girls start to feel less confidence in math abilities than boys since, boys are more encouraged in science and math by their teachers and parents.
Dear editor of the The Atlantic Esther Entin Without a doubt, there has been a decrease of a playtime for children. Parents place too much emphasis on academic success. Early on, one way to do that is by decreasing playtime. However, a point I strongly agree with is that overall playtime still can be beneficial for children. Parents nowadays place too much pressure on their children due to their misconceptions.
Parents feel insecure for the safety of their children when they have to cover long distances to school. The studies by Juneja (2001) and Ainsworth et al. (2005) supported the above fact. Personal Factors These include the lack of interest on the part of parents as well as students for education that leads to low literacy level for females. The parents think the ultimate goal of woman’s life is to marry and have children as soon as possible.
The women are probably easily manipulated because no one has told them that they have right to an education. Most families choose to set arranged marriages up for their daughters at a young age which causes these girls to start family life early and miss out on the opportunity of education (Odhiambo). Women do not seem to even be given the choice to continue schooling, their fathers decide their husbands and send them off to care for new children instead of learning how to become independent. Many of the girls in Sudan left schooling after at least three years, when they were still barely literate (Jamie). The women’s education in Sudan is so bad that their education levels are those of a kindergartner in the United States.
(Gibbons, 1989) Through not fault of there own, often, families with a lower socioeconomic status can struggle to provide educational support for their children. It is difficult for parents to create a learning environment at home with limited time and or financial resources. (Drudy, 2009) Parents have a huge influence on their children’s education; According to Ball et all (1994) middle class parents have more choice when it comes to choosing their children’s school. They have the economical capital which parents from working class backgrounds do not. According to Tovey and Share, (1999) parents of working class students have themselves often dropped out of school early and do not put the same value on education as the middle class parents.
I strongly believe that parents are the most person that can influence them especially through direct interactions. Professor Karen Hutchison, who worked in Rowan University, talked about the importance of play for young children. She made a statement that play is definitely misunderstood in today’s society. Parents fail to understand that play addresses to all developments of the child rather than just cognitive development (Rowan University, 2011). Parents today are so focus on getting their children into very prestige school such as Harvard or being successful, monetarily and educationally that they had forgotten the physical domain, which of course lead to obesity and social and emotional domain that lead to bullying (Rowan University,
According to (Saunders, 2007), he said that the usual problem that single parents concern is the practicality and most of the time single parents nowadays need to work and strive for their children, these involving to look for a suitable care giver or care taker for the children, having to arrange schedules when having to work late or at weekends. Another article ones said that by hearing the side of a 23 year old Jackielyn Rhio Guerrero concerning financial problem, she said that it was not easy to be a single parent, especially that her partner said that he was not yet ready to take the responsibility and that he was not ready to become a father. But then, her father helped her out, not just emotionally but in financially as well, until she found her own job. She said that “Those were the times when I told myself that I really need to be a good parent to my child, especially since he only had me to depend on,” she shares. Another single parent, Sherlyn Clerigo shares the same thing with Jackie.
Maginis states children from single parent families are more likely to have behavior problems because they tend to lack economic security and adequate time with parents, he agrees with notion that in order to avoid behavior problems children should not be raised from single parents for they lack economic security . Its true children from single parent’s family can lack economic securities but I tend to differ that it has harmful effect on the child. As a young girl who grew up with lots of hardship due single parenthood I was always aware about our financial problems if I wanted. Something my mother would plan and save for it maybe I would get it maybe not. Unlike some children who would cause a scene in a mall just because they wanted a piece of cookie I knew NO meant a NO and that notion has helped me to be a hardworking and responsible person in the society today.
