When a younger child does something wrong, or inappropriate, it is the parent’s job to discipline them in varying ways to understand the wrong they may have done. They are taught to approach conflict differently, depending on what it is the parent aims to gain from their disciplining. “ In each developmental stage, children gradually expand their capacity to balance their personal rights, needs, and wants with those of others. As children learn to do that, they develop constructive social skills as well as their own character”(Stephens). In this quote, Stephens explains further that children truly need to have positive reinforcement to encourage proper development in their stages through trial and error.
Being a good parent involves having an authoritative yet understanding and pliable view on a child’s wants and needs in life. Setting rules and boundaries with an authoritative attitude in parenting is essential. Letting a child have too much freedom does not end well. Children often get into mischief or serious trouble. The grandmother in HFSW gives the girl too much space and allows disrespect and defiance take place.
Most parenting books published from the mid 90’s to the present suggest that parents should be very involved in their children’s life. This type of parenting may have backfired, causing an entire generation of individuals that want everything handed to them and don 't want to work for anything. The problem is they have grown up with parents that want to be involved in every aspect of their children’s life. They have the best intentions and want to protect their children from the hardships of life. Over the past decade, as a result of overprotective parenting, children have been overindulged to a point where they lack confidence, they don’t understand the consequences of risk taking, and is causing new challenges for schools and educators.
A parent should child-proofs their home as they will offer their child the ability to partake freedom and administer safe practices at the same time for their child to explore his or hers environment, thus stimulate the proper development of autonomy. The potential strength of a child is acquired on successful determination, at this stage is the determination to exercise free will while facing his or hers failures, as well as shame and doubt.

The right and wrong clip draws a conclusion to the fact that children look up to their parents to learn and follow in their footsteps. When parents focus on less important morals, their children tend to not know the difference between good and “bad”. I quoted bad because I personally believe that no child should be labeled as bad because they are growing seeds and learning from their surroundings. If their surroundings are not a positive surrounding, then they could pick up bad habits. For example: in the beginning of the video, one of the children’s mothers told her that if a child is hitting her at school and she has told the teacher and it is continuing to happen, to hit him back.
They should also start to be made to consider the implications of their actions and behaviour on others. Regarding boundaries, as children become older they are more likely to argue back and question certain things so clear and fair boundaries need to be
They expect their children to hold a certain level of maturity. In this type of parenting style, the relationship between the parent and the child is very structured. The communication is very open between the two. The open communication allows the parent to provide a more understanding support. This way the child knows and understands, not only what their parents expect from them, but also the world around them.
Children have to learn how to behave and this can only be done through the setting of boundaries and constant supervision and
Waking up that early, should not be happening with kids and teens so young. “Today nearly 2/3 get under 8, and 2/5 get under 6 hours of sleep per night.” This is not healthy for little kids. They should not be getting only 6 hours of sleep. “Since the 1990s, sleep researchers and other health professionals have been telling us that these early school hours are harming children.”
In some societies, students are expected to identify a career by the time they enter high school. Their courses of study in high school are selected to guide them toward a specific career. I do not think it is a good idea because the students are not old enough to know what career they actually want, they do not know what the job is fully about, and they may have several different careers they like. Students are not old enough to know what career they actually want. Many of times students say the want to be a doctor, but when they get close to that career they tend not to like it as much anymore. Students tend to wonder off that path they chose to take first, but they get right on a different path and still end up with an amazing
