Loitering Parents How They Affect Their Children Joan Acocella brings the controversial topic of helicopter parenting to light in her article “The Child Trap: The Rise of Over Parenting.” Acocella gives good insight into the minds of parents, speaking about those who want their kids to succeed, but go about it in a suffocating way. One might even say she exemplifies how many guardians are trying to make up for their shortcomings. Say a parent felt ignored or snubbed as a child. Maybe their parents didn’t have the means to enroll their child in various different extracurricular activities, such as little league baseball, or horseback riding. This may make them grow into caretakers who are a little more aggressive when it comes to such activities that they may have missed out on.
But the question is whether parents should shave the right to check their teens social media accounts. Teenagers want their privacy, especially from their parents.

It’s not fair to categorize, and possibly ostracize, children that have no control over matters involving the relationship between parents. Why is it that the media sells the idea of a nuclear family?
Making Fun of an Audience In Mark Twain’s “Advice to Youth” satire is integrated into the text to make fun of an audience, even though he gives “…Didactic, instructive,” or “Good advice” (291). He criticizes the standard relationship form between children and their parents, specifically attacking the lack of humor between children and parents. When parents take things way too seriously when something “bad” happens which is not the best approach to solve minor problems that arise. Twain is skilled in many different art forms of language. He advises the reader to learn the same skill sets early on in life so that they can take advantage of the opportunities in front of them.

In the same book introduction as the opening quote, Judy Blume wrote, “Those who were most active in trying to ban books cam from the ‘religious right’ but the impulse to censor spread like a contagious disease. Other parents, confused and uncertain, were happy to jump on the bandwagon. Book banning satisfied their need to feel in control of their children’s
When a teenager makes a decision to be violent, people try to think of external influences, like the gaming industry, to blame for that child's aggressiveness. No one, especially parents, want to feel responsibility for a child's psychopathic violence, so they blame the first thing they find which is usually video games.

This theory explained how a male feels jealously toward a female because she can bear children and he cannot (Schultz & Schultz 2012). In my paper I will inform you on how I disagree with the idea and reasoning of this concept. Thirdly, I will elaborate on Horney’s theory of feminine psychology and the significant impact she had on women rights. Feminine psychology is defined as a revision of psychoanalysis to encompass the psychological conflicts inherent in the traditional ideal of womanhood and women’s roles (Schultz & Schultz 2012).
