Brother Dear A youthful mind in today’s society is rarely free from ambition. To limit a mind is like creating the first obstacle for success. Usually, most teenagers in high school already have diversified ideas of what they would like to do in the future. And often times, the direction in which they may want to expand may be different than what their parents expect of them. If one is fortunate enough, their parents might choose to support their decision; yet, most teenagers suffer from the unfortunate event in which their parents feel the need to take control and lead their lives in another direction.
I was able to talk with some teen moms about their experiences of having a baby. I received some negative feedback, such as not being able to do the things I normally would do at sixteen and the responsibly I would have as a teen. I had a high chance of becoming a statistic in teen pregnancy by living in poverty and my child having issues when he got older because he would not have a father. The positive feedback from the teen mothers was encouraging. She told me how the love and bond between mother and child is so strong that you can overcome anything.
My parents always tell me “enjoy being a kid while it lasts” and I would just encore it and all I wanted to do was grow up and get out of here and travel the world an just be an dependant women on my own, but now I realize why my parents told me that, once I saw my parents come home late from work and seeing them all tired ,then I realized its not so fun being an adult because you have to work really hard for something you want and once you have a family of your own its not always going to be about you anymore, you have to focus on being a parent , and that pretty much sums up being an adult, but what do I know I’m not an adult ..yet . Well middle school has changed my life, and made me realize a lot of things, It mite not have been the greatest experience of my life but I learned a lot and learned a lot from my mistakes so I wont make them again in the future but I don’t know what will happen in the future and I wouldn’t want to
Twenge says, “There’s this idea that, ‘Yeah, I don’t want to work, but I’m still going to get all the stuff I want” (Peck 303). Some young adults have not even left their home before. They enjoy staying at home and not realizing that they should go out to find jobs. The main reason why young adults do not want to work is that their parents still guide them like children. Today, millions young adults are facing real problems: lack of job opportunities, housing, and trying to survive in a fast, globalized world.
In today’s modern and fast paced society, teenagers have had to rush through life and begin adulthood earlier than the generations before. Many teens have also been expected to make this step in life without the help of a parent or mature adult, because they are too busy with their own lives. The media has replaced parents’ jobs of teaching their children about life, and the media surrounds teens with mature themes which affect teenagers in a negative way. Many teenagers have lost a section of their lives by having to skip to adulthood where they are unprotected from many negative parts of this world. I agree with David Elkind that “teenagers have lost their privileged position” and that unlike generations of teenagers before, this generation
When I was a kid I used to live with my mother and my grandparents, I grew up without knowing my father, but I was happy because my grandparents always bought me everything I wanted, at that time I was the only child at home. Later my Mom got married, and I had two brothers. I learned how to share my toys with them, and I got a stepfather who taught me many good things because he is a good and hard working man. My Mom is lucky. Before I finished the high school, I started to work for a big tools company as a salesman helper (where I learned many new things).
I have known that I wanted to be a Foster Carer for over 20 years, I also knew that getting the timing right would be important for everyone if it was to be successful. My mother fostered when I was younger and I suppose I knew from then that I wanted to work with young people in some way. I have been involved in hosting international students for 7 or so years, and although I’d always worked with young people I wasn’t sure if I could do it 24/7. My long-term wish is to give a young person a fresh start in life, putting a smile on their face is a plus. I have questioned my reasons for going into this for a while and discussed it with my siblings and children; then I decided that I didn’t want to regret never giving it a try.
It is much more difficult for a single father or mother to be an effective parent than it is for a father and mother who are working together to rear their children. The two have more time to help with homework and even to play with the children. They also discuss the children’s problems, decide on courses of action, and back each other up when it comes to dealing with rebellious teenagers (Hensley, 2011 pg.349). A single parent on the other hand, does not have as much time to support or supervise their children. The does not have much time to spend playing with his/her children, helping with homework, or any things that couples share.
More couples are choosing either to not get married, get divorced or even homosexual couples are raising children and are considered to be a family. The trend is now more non-traditional than what would have been the norm fifty years ago. This essay will attempt to look at how the changes in family structure impact our children and the different family structures that now do exist and their consequences to mankind. The most important issue at hand is how this is all affecting our children. The children are the ones that will carry on our society and it is our jobs to teach them morals and values.
Children without adoptive parents can be raised by their grandparents or other family members. Although mother have more responsibility to raising a child, I personally think that both parents should assume equal responsibility in raising a child. In this era, in most family, fathers are working hard to fulfill his family needs. Many children spend more time in home with mother as compared to the time that they spend with their father. Almost every time child spend without father, just with their mother.
