Parenting is a very controversial subject. Everybody has an opinion as to what is the ideal way of raising your child, and many prefer for people not to interfere in this decision, but what if you’re doing it the wrong way and in reality causing more harm than good?
Hanna Rosin’s article, “The Overprotected Kid”, addresses the issue that kids are missing out on developmental benefits when they are not allowed to explore the world by weighing their own risks. She introduces rhetoric concepts such as audience, genre, and purpose to get her point across to her readers. Rosin uses these ideas to portray her opinion in a unique way to connect to her readers and persuade them to consider her viewpoint as their own. This article seems to be written as a persuasive journal entry to parents to sway their parenting behaviors to be less overprotective. In Rosin’s article, she makes a strong argument that kids need independence by making her audience, genre, and purpose known from start to finish.
Sometimes people don’t realize how much their decisions and choices can effect others around them. Parenting is one of these such cases. The thought of having to raise children is loved by many people, but it is often a feared reality. Many people don’t see themselves as being capable of being a parent, even though they are very capable of being a good parent. Some of the best examples of good parenting fall into the book To Kill a Mockingbird. In this book, Atticus Finch is a loving father who is raising two children, Jem and Scout. He is often a misunderstood individual and is frowned upon by many in his town. By looking at the examples of Atticus Finch’s parenting style, it can be seen how he is a good, loving father to his children who teaches them the proper way in which they should go.
Becoming a parent is a task that cannot be taken lightly. It is a task filled with frustration, responsibilities and dedication, but is also filled with joy and satisfaction. From children learning how to behave to them going out with friends, rules, standards and expectations are set mostly by their parents. Parents make most of their children’s decision in the first couple of years from behalf from what they eat for breakfast from setting their curfew as they get older. As children began grow, they began to make their own choices and learn to deal with the consequence of their mistakes. However, some parents will try to protect this process which can harm their child by them not accepting responsibility on their own. An article by Dr. Nathan Lents has given the audience a view about those who tend to be overprotective parents are actually not
In “Hey! Parents, Leave those Kids Alone” Hanna Rosin shares her aspects on the protective behavior of parents for their children and its effects on the improvement of their kids. Hanna Rosin explains about the risks and dangers involved in the adventurous playgrounds and making a child aware of it while doing anything independently there.
One of Kimmel’s main points in chapter 4 is the M-F test. Which was created in the 1930s, by Terman and Miles. Their main objective was to codify masculinity and femininity into their basic traits, attitudes, and behaviors. The result was that gender identity soon became associated with these perceived masculine or feminine traits. He then goes on to explain the ridiculous scoring method, the questions which to us now, seem to not even point at masculine or feminine traits. Then again I am a more tomboyish girl, so to me they seem arbitrary and insignificant. The test also included possible careers, such as forest ranger, librarian, (I’d like both of these as a career, weird to think how a job can have a perceived masculine or feminine trait- that’s some strange
Researchers have defined “helicopter parenting” as parents who are too involved in their children’s life. This includes solving problems that children could solve on their own and making important decisions on their children’s behalf. This causes many problems in children. Helicopter parenting is wrong because it is invading a child’s privacy. A parent hovering is harmful to the child because it can cause a feeling of being overwhelmed by always having someone over their shoulder (“Here’s Why You Need to Stop Helicopter Parenting”). Helicopter parenting can cause anxiety, depression, a lack of confidence, unhappiness, academic problems, and many other difficulties in a child’s lives.
To be loved, to be praised, to be cherished; three things that every child in the world wishes for. It is a parent's job to grant their children with these needs. However, some children are not as lucky as others and are not blessed with the caring parents that they deserve. Luckily, the foster care system is there to help. The foster care system helps provide safety and care for children whose families are unable to do so.
"The Revolution Will Not Be Supervised" by Hannah Rosin is an article written for The Atlantic and is about parenting. The article is in the subject of how overprotective parenting has changed our kids over the past few decades. In my opinion, parenting should not be as overprotective as it is now, and kids are suffering from this. This article is very well written and there are definitely parts I both agree and disagree on. The statement, "The idea was that kids should face what, to them, seem like "really dangerous risks" and conquer them alone. That, she said, is what builds self-confidence and courage" (page 2). I agree with this statement completely. Kids need to be able to take risks and feel danger. If kids never take risks, they won 't be very successful in life in general. To stand out, you need to take risks, and playing it safe doesn 't always work. Also, the statement, "Trust in general has eroded, and parents have sought to control more closely what they can: their children," (page 5). People now are nowhere close to people in the 1970 's. They are just not as close with each other. For example, I don 't even know my next-door neighbors ' names. I feel as though in this world today, we 've looked to the term "community" as something that 's on our phone screens, and not
Privacy has become a huge issue as people still debate whether they want privacy or protection. And one of the debate is argued by Coben, the author of “The Undercover Parent”. Coben thinks that the concern for the security of children overrides their right to their privacy. But, I disagree because violating the children’s privacy would also involve violating many innocent kids’ privacy rights even when there are alternative ways to protect them from harm. And because of this, parent become the “faceless bureaucracy” as they monitor and dictate over the child’s life.
As a result, family bonding is decreasing and kids are not prepared with hands on experience. Parents want to be nice, so their child will love them more and they can be the “cool dad” or “cool mom” in the child’s heart. But it should be the parents’ job to step up and do what is best for the protection of a child, which can be read in Cari Romm’s online article from The Cut, “Is It Really Possible for Parent to Be Friends With Their Kid”. Also as the world to grow wealthier, it seems children are no longer enforced with chores and responsibilities by parents possibly due to the fact that they no longer appreciate the value of money. So in result they believe that money can solve problems and responsibilities. On a similar note, if parents were more aware of what happened to their children they would be able to control and know what their child has access to. This would have played a major role in the Florida school shooting. In the Florida school shooting a 19 year old teen mass killed 17 kids at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School as retaliation for suspension, all coming from specifically Time. The parents could have understood why it happened and actually prevent it, if they were
In September, 2014, CBS Houston reported that Adrian Peterson, a Vikings football player, beat his 4-year-old son with a tree branch that summer. The beating left wounds and welts on the child’s body. Later on, the star running back was indicted on child abuse charges and subsequently deactivated for Minnesota Vikings’ second week game against New England Patriots. Although Adrian has avoided jail time in child abuse case, he yet faced a suspension by NFL Commissioner for the remainder of the entire 2014 season with no pay (Orr 2014). So many articles on most social media highly objected to Adrian’s punishment on his little son. Working in my mother-in-law’s nail salon, I could see how furious some of my customers were toward
In the summer of 2003, my family went on a trip to Disney. I dressed myself in a non-matching outfit and my mother told me to change before we went out. I threw a fit, accused her of calling me blind, and refused to talk to her the rest of the day. It was totally unnecessary and over-dramatic; especially, since my mom was only saving me from embarrassment. Recently, there has been controversy over a certain topic. Are kids deluded narcissists, too coddled, and spoiled? Kids in this generation have awards handed to them like candy, believe that their online appearance is a true reflection of themselves, and are taught from an early age that “life is fair”. This is a problem because our generation is not learning how to deal with real life problems on their own, is relying on social media for their self-esteem, and is completely spoiled and ungrateful.
