A lot of children resent their step parents and this also makes the situation all the more problematic. Lots of step parents have issues with how to discipline or even if to discipline at all. I feel that if my ex-spouse remarried, I would want the new wife to treat my child just as I would. If he or she needed to be chastised then it would be her responsibility to do it. If I were a step parent I would expect the parents to be completely okay with me treating the child in the same manner that they would.
Other disadvantages from this situation can be that sometimes a single parent can’t afford expensive holidays which would make the child feel left out when they are talking about events when after coming back from their holidays and are asked to write or tell about what happened during the school holidays. The child will lose their self confidence and moral will be low if all the factors above do occur, they may also get jealous of other children who could be in a better situation because of the financial stability brought by having both the parents being together. Example 2: Children moving form Reception to Juniors most parents and children get worried about how they will fit into new environments, with children older then their own, not knowing how and what is required of them to which can cause both parent and child to feel insecure by not sleeping well and having nightmares, not eating food, and as the time gets closer the child will start to be more clingy towards the parent and vice versa for the parent
One way young people face discrimination because of biology , young people are often channelled into stereotypical roles .This is usually presented through the family. For example parents may believe younger people are unable to work because they are still dependant on them. Young people don’t usually have a specific role within the family and as a consequence often do not hold any status .This can mean they are often discriminated in family decisions as they often will not have a say. This however can be argued as somewhat gender specific. Boys will often be given more responsibility and status as parents often want him to grow up and be the ‘ man of the house’ where as it can be said that girls are treated as dependant on parents and as if they are vulnerable and therefore need protection .So it’s not really true that all young people face this kind of just discriminated but instead that it is more gender specific.
These are just three of many factors which can negatively affect children caught in between the divorce of two parents. The parental problems before a divorce have tremendous damaging power in children's lives. This is because divorce typically “crystallizes rather than creates long-standing family problems.”(Marriages and Families...p.476 Furstengber,Taitler) This means the problems in the family are made clear and have been occurring for the majority of the marriage. Parents in predivorce families are less involved in their children's education. (Sun,2001) This could be because the parents are so stressed out with the marital problems leading to their divorce that they neglect the academic needs of their children such as helping with homework and supporting their self confidence.
Not only do parents lose their shared dreams and hopes for the future, but they also risk losing their children. The stresses and strains of divorce affect parents in different aspects of their lives. First of all, many people assume that conflict with their spouses will decrease as a result of divorce, and so divorce is foreseen as the cure-all - the hope that ending the marriage will eliminate all the troubles. However, while divorce can eliminate some problems, other conflicts actually arise during or after this process. Relationships usually do not end cleanly and couples are forced to deal with difficult situations that involve fights and compromises, such as moving households, custody and visitation struggles, child support payments and more.
It would mean we would get home a lot later from sports practices or games. This would make kids tired and slack on their homework, but it also might mean not as many parents let their children participate in school sports. This would hurt the school because it might mean they have to do away with sports and other after school activities. So making school an hour later would result in less free time for students, tired students, and a decrease in after-school activities. With so
But sometimes this is not the case. Some teenagers get into trouble at school and with the law this causes parents to be stricter with their child. Some parents choose to be strict because of the mistakes they had made in their past, they believe it is the only way their child will achieve things in life, or that if they give their child too much freedom this will result in the child getting into trouble. Firstly, nobody is perfect. Everyone makes mistakes, even parents.
It will take a very long time for a child or young person to be able to trust the carer’s and their family and be able to feel settled in their new home as they may feel like an outsider and do not belong here. When children come into care it will affect them and other people, for the child or young person they will have mood swings, negative behaviour and sometimes regress back to an earlier age, for the parents they will feel angry and upset that their child has been taken away and don’t always co-operate with the authorities, as foster carer’s we will have added responsibilities and will have to deal with any issues that arise, such as consoling the child and make sure they feel safe in a calming environment. Our own children can be affected if
However, if the parents let them live far away from them, they won’t be concerning about their parents. For instance, one of my friend’s families had left her son with her sister and went to live in the oversea that made her son thought that their parents didn’t love him so he didn’t even concern about them. Besides, this will affect the parents’ feeling which can end up with a bad relationship. Another reason is the financial. Young people won’t be concerning about the paying services while they are still educating.
Thus, teenagers will not easily involve themselves in social issue like baby dumping. Topic sentence 2 Parent don’t give full attention is also one of the cause that lead to baby dumping. This is because parents are too busy with their jobs until unable to give attention to their children. Moreover, family break-ups happen after a long period of misunderstandings, fighting and unhappiness are most easy affect their children physical thinking. Furthermore, young couples will scare get a punishment from their parents because they are not ready to support their new born babies.
