Both parents wanted to see their children become successful, but they took different routes to achieve this. Mark was given the expectations of attending school and trying his hardest to succeed in life. He was a rebellious young man who believed schooling was pointless. His mom finally forced him to attend school by tying him up and carrying him there. Mark’s mom did this because she couldn’t stand thinking about Mark becoming like his father.
The writer then proceeds to discuss how today’s parents who were born during the baby-boomer era, were raised alienated from their parents and feel that is it their civic duty to make that up by trying to be “best-friends” with their children instead of being an authoritative figure like how they intentionally should be. However, many fail to see that this is in fact a recipe for disaster. The article argues that children today, ironically, are asking for the discipline and rules that their parents fail to provide. Navarette draws out his thesis in which he believes that its time for the parents to step up and do their jobs correctly in raising their children. Kids today are being over-protected by their parents and sheltered from the harsh realities of the real world.
If I could change one thing in my community it would be to offer parenting classes. I listen to my friends complain about their relationship with their parents and the lack of communication between them often. What I have come to realize is that both parties don’t know that the relationship is broken and they need to change the way they are talking to each other because obviously it is not working. I believe that if parents knew different ways to talk and help their kids then more could get done in the relationship. It is hard raising kids and hurtful things can be said, but I just don’t think a parent should react in a hurtful manner.
He also doesn’t like it when Scout complains about Walter taking all of the syrup. This shows he wants his children to be polite and have manners. Another point is that Atticus thinks his children should have a good education. This is shown in “In your case, the law remains rigid. So to school you must go.” This shows us that Atticus doesn’t want his children to be brought up like he was.
Elizavette is his secure base and when she left the only way he knew how to handle the loss was to act out. When she would return he would cling to her because he needed that feeling of security but would hit or yell at her because he was also showing her that her leaving made him upset. I do not think there is any true answer to children who go through resistant attachment. I feel that everyone reacts to things in different ways and especially at a young age it is hard to reason or explain to them what is going on. I think that if you have two very patient and loving parents the child will learn to cope with it as he or she grows up, like in the case with Noah.
These parents make it known when the child is wrong and sometimes even ignore them. There is a lack in the loving and valuing nature that parents should have. Regardless, on both ends of the spectrum the parent will discipline their child when they misbehave because that is how they continue to learn right from wrong. When deciding how much control and/or supervision the parent places on the child lies under demandingness-control or permissiveness-restrictiveness. Controlling parents limit the amount of freedom, further resulting in rules.
hitting, kicking, biting, steal, scream) whenever they react to a mood change. This brings up a child strong enough to become a criminal later in life by just being unsocial. Once this individual has grown up he/she is likely to be concerned with the consequences of their actions since they have little to lose versus to the one who had a close social relationship with their parents. The attachments of emotional component of conformity, such as the family and in school are the key for a child to feel valued, respected, and admired. If no emotional attachments are in place, children seem not to care about the reactions of their parents when they behave obnoxiously.
It is not that they demand too much from their kids but they expect too little. Parents try so hard to provide their children’s needs to make them happy and become their kid’s best friend that they forget about being a real parent. A parent who knows what is best for their child should not be afraid to say “no”, “The mistake that many parents make today is not that they’re too strict but rather too lenient”. They should discipline and set limits to consumption and teach their children the value of a
For some reason the adult child feels as though they have the same rights to the household as their parents do. With this sad reality, comes the enabling parent who has become overly dependent on their young adult emotionally, thus stifling the independence of their child. This is what happens in a co-dependent household. The codependent parent fails to realize that it is the responsibility of the parents to teach their children to teach independence and responsibility. Enabling your adult children will only cripple them.
