But I must say that parents are a huge and irreplaceable difference in the lives of children in terms of education, abuse, physical and mental health, drug use, pregnancy and nearly every other social indicator. Despite this, I do not think that prisons are a type of replacement for parents. Persons who do not learn to develop at home can hardly develop in jail. For single parents maybe the raising of the kids is not perhaps as with both parents, but education has the same purpose. Prisons can never give the same education or love from a single parent home.
According to Blank, very little is known about the low-income single men who father the children in poor single mother families. “First because these men are much less publicly visible than the mother of their children, they are often ignored in policy discussion.” (Blank, 2010) Mothers within these fatherless families conduct all the necessary needs for their children such attending school meetings or taking their children for health care when they are ill. In other words, the mothers are devotedly committed to ensuring that the wellbeing of their children is fulfilled to the best their abilities in the absence of these men who fathered children but do not provide for their needs. The article makes a solid point about just how little is known about these men as she goes on to mention that our government fails to tie these men back to the families when it comes to data collected on mothers and children living in poverty. The government only collects information
When that child goes out into society without being taught to obey laws and rules and know the benefits and consequences of them, frequently the results are not good. Clearly the bible teaches us in “Proverbs 29:15 the rod and reproof give wisdom: but a Child left [to himself] bringeth his mother to shame.”(King James Bible, Proverbs 29.15). My siblings and I were spanked, along with other form of discipline, by our parents. In contradiction to some belief about spanking, none of us have committed a violent crime. We knew stealing, lying, and disrespecting adults was not going to be tolerated.
It was so hard for them to except that they were infertal, they couldn’t even go to places where there were kids because of how hurt they were that they couldn’t physicaly have any. Through Chris teaching in a prison, he realized that bioloy isn’t the only way of getting a kid. He looked through adoption. He found a little new born that they will adopt. He also realizes that she will be completing his family instead of her being an orphan.
Authoritarian parents are adult-centered, demanding and rejecting child’s needs based on authority and power. This is the reason why Sammy has a low learning ability, the motivation, beliefs and attitude towards learning. Sammy claimed that she did not remember when they talk peacefully, this is not only because the parental control over her was high, but also her parents spent litter time to talk with her as they were busy to work. There are the main reasons leads to poor family relationship. Also, Sammy’s parents keep nagged and complained but did not concern about why she had unsatisfactory results on academic aspect.
Donny’s mother lacked self- confidence and cared more about what other people thought about her as a parent. The conflict between mother and her son is ironic. Unfortunately, Cal, Donny’s tutor, failed to support and motivate Donny to do his homework. Cal represents an immature, Peter Pan like kid himself. Tyler even described them in the same manner: long hair, faded jeans, fans of rock music, careless, and young.
Their attitude was that “children should be seen and not heard.” Children were very vulnerable to violence in the Victorian era, even within the home. They had absolutely not protection under the law. Pip was badly abused by his guardian Mrs. Joe, who was also his sister and because of this he became very sensitive and morally timid” She beat him with the cane for almost no reason, threw him against walls treated him like dirt. Mr Joe was also abused by his parents when he was younger. Dickens used Joe's past to show the consequences in later life for victims of abuse.
In the novel apart from George, no one else really cares for Lennie. He shows us how the characters feel and act towards Lennie as a character. Lennie, along with Curley’s wife, candy and crooks are considered to be the weaker characters in the novel and when they meet in chapter four in the stable house all the other weak characters reject lennie for his child like nature and his simplemindedness. Lennie tries to do his role in helping him and George fulfill their American dream but no matter how hard he tries, he only causes disasters. It also relates to that time in America, when everyone wants to have their “American Dream” but it’s actually really
While parents worked children were in school their lives were quite separate from adult life by getting children to interact with their age groups, and places like pub were forbidden for children to be in. While adults had to face the criminal charges for their wrong activity, children were not faced with harsh adult criminal justice system. How happy were children in 20th century? There were many positive statistics in twentieth century regarding children and everyone seemed to be optimist about their future as before they were faced with child labor, which led them to criminality, mortality rates were higher or ill health. What did Wilmot and Young find about working class families?
Due to all of these reasons the students in the play feel as though they are prisoners; Jerome: We treated like convicts Ms Sun: How do you mean? Jerome: First, we wake up to bars on our window Coca: Then our moms and dad. (Sun, 912-913) These kids are constantly told what to do and when to do it. No one believes in them or expects anything great from them. It’s almost as if they are expected to fail.
