Parenting. This word strikes fear in a number of young parents because it’s a whole new level of responsibility; many worry that they will not be good parents and will not be able to raise their child properly. Rex and Rose Mary Walls, from Jeannette Walls’ memoir The Glass Castle, are extremely strange people who live their life differently and it would seem like raising children would be a failure for them, but in the end, their kids grow up to be very decent adults. Both of Rex and Rose Mary are good parents because they demonstrate that they care about their kids very much, they raised them to be smart and able to see things for more than they are. The first thing that makes a good parent is not how you discipline your child or what classes they take, but it is to show that you care about them.
Society is in a me generation and for the family to work and cannot be like that. This problem will still persist if there are still people who put themselves over their kids nine times out of ten. Culture and society also say it is okay to have children at such a young age when you cannot physically take care of them is a problem as well. The idea of family needs to morph back into what it was instead of what it is seen as today. Single mothers and fathers have a hard time raising one child let alone two or three but yet they keep on having child after child.
Anyone who has raised a child can understand the many obstacles and challenges of parenthood. Every parent wants to see their child happy and succeed in life, but in order to accomplish that, many parents believe they must grant their child’s every want and need. Ruben Navaratte Jr.’s article from the San Diego Tribune, “The deprived child who has it all” is shared to be aimed towards the parents of the new millennium. Navarette bring up the issue about parents of the new millennium who make the mistake of ironically providing too much for their children. In the opening paragraph of the article, Navarette shares his own experience of growing up as a child in the 1940’s.
As the years go on Puritan families start to raise their children different that is evident between source six (1690) and source nine (1719), both sources practice Christianity.

Giving our children-turned-young-adults freedom to make their own decisions is tough for many of
Trying to decide between one’s job and the people that matter most to them can be extremely difficult and can leave someone very stressed out and over-worked. Trying to handle both is surely a balancing act. The articles, “Double Daddy,” “The Diary of a Mad Blender,” and “The Child’s View of Working Parents,” all have to do with the same issues: parents, and their choosing of family and home life, or work. The authors of these articles have done different studies and interviews that helped enlighten their readers about the difficult lives of parents in today society.

Both stories show that each set of parents display conflict with their children. Although one story focuses on how parenting is not hard enough and influences the children negatively, the other story displays how the parenting is too hard and it also affects the children negatively. Each story shows sibling rivalry because of the parenting style and there is sibling rivalry because the brothers in the stories get all the attention and
Then years after that, she had two of my little brothers and then had another two more after that. My mother didn’t do what she wanted but accomplished a lot with us, because she raised me well.
