Atticus uses this approach not only with his children, but with all of Maycomb, and yet, for all of his mature treatment of Jem and Scout, he patiently recognizes that they are children and that they will make childish mistakes and assumptions. Ironically, Atticus’s one insecurity seems to be in the child-rearing department, and he often defends his ideas about raising children to those more experienced and more traditional. Atticus Finch isn’t just an ordinary father. He teaches his children things no parent of that time period, or even our time period would even think of doing. Atticus tries to show his children how the world works from other people’s point of view.
Bob Ewell like Atticus is a white single parent and he is infamous for being the town’s white drunk trash. Bob is not a responsible parent, he is always losing his job and because of this his children suffer. Bob fails also to teach his children wrong from right because he makes Mayella lie in court which subsequently causes the death of an innocent man. He doesn’t have affection or even take care of his children obviously because on Scout’s first day of school his son is asked to leave because he has lice. Bob Ewell has no morals; he discriminates against blacks and even hits his own daughter.
Polonius… Telling Kids What’s Up Since the Middle Ages Parenting is an odd thing. Some people are terrible parents and some can be fantastic parents, but it takes a special kind of parent to take on the mantle of the good and the bad parent for different kids. Polonius falls into the category of special parent. His actions are completely understandable by the standards of the time period, but in todays day and age his actions are despicable. When talking to Laertes, Polonius’ heir, Polonius takes on the tone of a knowledgeable mentor.
Parent and Children Relationships in Madeleine L’Engle’s A Wrinkle In Time Growing up, I had a single parent household with my father as the primary caretaker. I had quite the privileged upbringing, although something was always missing, my mother. At first I was just sad about losing her, then I grew to resent her. Similar feelings of resentment were also portrayed in the novel, A Wrinkle In Time by Madeleine L’Engle. Meg at first falls back on her father for guidance and security, but soon realizes he cannot provide that.
Torvald’s attitude toward Nora Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” is a very controversial play that wounded every man’s masculinity and triggered their self-preservation alarm. Nora’s bold choice to leave her husband, along with her duties as a mother and as a housewife, caused a wave of criticism mostly, if not entirely, from the male population. In the 1800s it was unheard off for the woman to take full control over the situation, make her own decisions and most importantly to stand up and leave behind her spouse. Henrik Ibsen challenged the society’s mentality and shook the very foundation it was built on with his three act play. Evolution of Torvald’s character is shown from a man in control of his life, his wife and his household, to a man in front of whom his whole perfect life falls apart all thanks to one woman.
Lee lived in Alabama as a child in a town called Monroeville, her father was also a lawyer with this in mind I helps the reader to view the novel as realistic. Throughout the prose Lee presents that Jem’s moods and emotions change and fluctuate “Jem stayed moody and silent for a week.. So I left Jem alone and tried not to bother him.” This quotation presents Jem as temperamental. In addition Lee highlights Scout as mature and polite as she respects Jem’s privacy and sees it right to leave him as it will cause them to argue. Lee uses this lexis so Scout and the reader can reflect on how bored Scout was and how much she needs Jem in her daily life.
The parenting style that I chose to write about is Permissive Parenting Style (PPS Permissive parenting is sometimes known as indulgent parenting. Parents who practice this style make relatively few demands upon their children. Because these parents have low expectations for self-control and maturity, they rarely discipline their children. Permissive parents raise children who grow into adults that have no strong inner sense of discipline, no sense of connectedness or family and will mostly likely have to re-parent themselves, which puts them at a disadvantage in all areas of life as adults. It is not unusual for adult children of permissive parents to feel resentful or angry toward their parents as they realize the many lessons they were not taught as children because their parents were so desperate to not make waves at any cost,by being the “cool mom”.
The parents that seem to have an existing abundance are of the authoritarian type of parents. The authoritarian types of parents are the pair of parents you ought to look out for all they want to do is restrict! Coming from parents as such I can easily relate to the melancholic smile that immediately spreads across the offspring belonging to such parents after being denied the permission to go to a friend’s party. It’s a sad case against those blessed children whom their parents have permitted them to partake in a celebration amongst their friends. Being protective is an admirable quality seen by other children but in reality it is nothing more than bearing the burden of shackles, which are clamped around your feet.
My own child and I are victims of Parental Alienation i.e. Hostile Parenting, so severely that it has destroyed my relationship with my daughter, my only child. It is devastating for the parent that it is happening too. Our society doesn’t know what it is, or what to do about it. The police don’t want to get involved because it is a “domestic issue.” Many family problems are still kept behind closed doors and left for
They admonish us for "hitting" our kids and tell us about other options. I inform them that we love our kids very much and do not hit them often and they need to know there will be serious consequences for their misbehavior. However, my husband and I are interested in a professional opinion and want to know your viewpoint? A This is a very relevant dialogue, as more parents are leaving the traditional authoritarian and hierarchical model of disciplining their children, for a more gentle and supportive one. This approach does not discount that firmness, rules and expectations are part of a non-spanking way of parenting.
