It is going to depend on the viewer’s thought and individual values on the subject at hand. This can cause conflict with cultural values. In the television series of Sister Wives, Kody is seen as the leader and is the one who needs to balance his time out with each wife and family. They also have an episode where they interview each of the kids to see if they would want to be polygamy. Some of the kids said they won’t mind continuing to do polygamy if they found the right people and were in love.
Everyone has an opinion and different beliefs on almost every topic, in which one of the most controversial topics is adoption. In adoption, people believe that race matters due to their ethical or cultural beliefs; however race does not matter because every child needs a loving home. Additionally, studies of multiracial families show that kids are more aware of their culture, as well as they are more like the community around them, then their ethnic background. There are many adoption agencies, and others with the beliefs that kids need to be with parents of the same ethnicity because it would provide the child with more cultural awareness, as well as it would prevent children from the danger and backlash they might get from others.

Rosa Lee was the one that her children had to look up to and the ones that decided to follow in her footsteps ended up in the same situation as her. “When her children were young-the ages of the grandson and granddaughter-she taught them how to shoplift as well” (40).

Another reason why both parents should assume equal responsibility in raising a child is because children need love. Love, not just child need love, everyone need love too, but children have a special case. Persons just need one love in their life but children need 2 love in their life, one from their mother and another one from their father. As long as that condition is accomplished children will stay in right way, but if that condition is unaccomplished children will stuck in wrong way. So, both mother and father love can make children have good mental, attitude, and behavior.
The effects of parenting styles (child-rearing practices) on the development of prosocial behaviour of children in early and middle childhood Abstract: Prosocial behaviour such as empathy, sharing and helping, is vital for healthy and effective relationships throughout life. Parenting styles have been found to significantly influence the amount of prosocial behaviour that a child shows (Dekovic & Jannsen, 1992; Berk, 2000). The relationship between prosocial behaviour and parenting styles was investigated interviewing 4 participants with regards to their parenting styles and the level of prosocial behaviour of their children. The participants were all mothers of two children aged between 4 and 8 years. Two white English-speaking mothers were interviewed, and two coloured Afrikaans-speaking mothers.
Developmental psychologists have long been interested in how parents impact child development. However, finding actual cause-and-effect links between specific actions of parents and later behavior of children is very difficult. Some children raised in dramatically different environments can later grow up to have remarkably similar personalities. Conversely, children who share a home and are raised in the same environment can grow up to have astonishingly different personalities than one another. Despite these challenges, researchers have uncovered convincing links between parenting styles and the effects these styles have on children.
