The systemic perspective views the problems of the individual in relation to the different contexts in which people live. It looks at their part in the family – child, sibling, parent, spouse etc. whilst also taking into account their status outside the family. Systemic practice regards the context in which the individual lives as being vital to their psychological growth and emotional well-being. The goals of the therapy are to explore why the client/family are in need of the therapy, how family patterns maintain and facilitate the problem, what members bring from the past that continues to feed into the problem and finally to reassess the problem and suggest alternative options (Corey, 2005).
An authoritative style of parenting is considered by many as the paramount of parenting styles. Developed by Baumrind (1966), this type of parenting has evolved massively. Authoritarian parents are considered to have the “artfully” balanced qualities of responsiveness and demandingness (Baumrind, 1966). Furthermore, an authoritative style of parenting involves the warmth, consideration, love and compassion that a primary caregiver offers to a child. In this style, parents take delight in their children and their achievements.
The questionnaire specified the precision in the emotional expression levels in the home. The study used college-aged subjects by completing several questionnaires along with taped discusses. The theory is that family expressiveness has a differential effect on the nonverbal behavior and skills of a person. It was maintained and developed. It emerges that the method of words and abilities in communication are prejudiced by the emotional expressiveness of the family environment.
The Four Parenting Styles The four parenting styles are known by parenting researchers as Permissive, Authoritarian, Authoritative, and Uninvolved/Neglectful. All four styles are considered to be “normal” styles of parenting. Quiz – What Type of Parent are you? Permissive If you chose more “A’s” than anything else, you are probably a “Permissive” Parent. Permissive Parents tend to be more responsive to their children’s needs than demanding.
Field (1988) agreed with their findings and found that children who had been in full time day care were more aggressive towards their peers. However other studies show that day care doesn’t necessarily cause children to be more aggressive, but it can be the other way round as some home-reared children are seen to be more
Family Systems Tools Report Learning Team D: Julie Lynn Carswell, Brandee Lopez, Chanda Jean Louis, and Toni Taylor BSHS/312 April 24, 2011 Cheryl Ritter Introduction – Chanda Jean-Louis There are a number of appropriate system techniques or tools that therapists professionals use when helping a client. These system techniques are reframing, boundary setting, sculpting, genogram, multi-generation transmission and power gram, which help to facilitate change and break dysfunctional patterns. Each technique has its own approach and the therapists would need to know some things about the client to know which approach would best be beneficial for their client. These tools help the therapists find out how each member of the family sees the problem and to form first impressions of the family’s functioning. Reframing – Brandee Lopez Reframing is a tool used “to facilitate change and break dysfunctional patterns” (Parrott, 2003, p. 378).
The dynamics between family members are affected by communication and behavioral patterns, traditions and emotional interdependence (Bowles, 2011). Dynamics within the family have significant repercussions on the overall health of its members especially children. In the Pakistani context family is the basic unit of social life and family members’ lives are intricately intertwined with one another. Haveman and Wolfe (1995) on the basis of Human Capital Framework of Becker (1981, 1993) proposed that parents shape their children’s environment which impacts their success (as cited in Robertson & Reynolds, 2010). Thus, it implies the role of the immediate environment provided by the family in the overall development of a child.
Parents might be concerned over the consequences of having just one kid. However, different psychological research has revealed that all these interpretations are not the truths. This essay examines the statement that “The only child is not disadvantageous in personal growth” by dividing personal growth into three aspects which are sociability, achievement motivation and emotional adjustment. This is followed by various scientific

Society in the other hand enforces the opposite. Society enforces the use of favors rather than voluntary sacrifice. In the article “What do grown children owe their parents” both topics are clearly discussed. “[The author] maintains that parents’ voluntary sacrifices, rather than creating “debts” to be “repaid,” tend to create love or friendship.” “The relationship between children and their parents should be one of friendship characterized by mutuality rather than reciprocal favors.” For example if a family member is ill, another member of the same group should take care of the sick individual without expecting anything back. If both themes are compared to see who has a larger
