Many people argue that development is vital in the younger years in the child’s life, and the ability to solve problems and apply ideas help in the long-term. Hyman argues that the lower classes create a self imposed barrier to learning their values. This is because he believes that they have a low value on education, with a ‘play safe’ culture and also a low level of self belief. This would all impact on the child performance at school as they would not have the attitude needed to progress. If at any point they failed, they would see this as a big mistake and give up and have a lack of motivation.
This is a big influence on student’s educational achievement as they do not have enough money to buy the necessary equipment for school such as revision guides. Also, if a student comes from a poor background, the house is more likely to be overcrowded. This means that they do not have a quiet place to study and do their homework which puts them at a disadvantage. Thay may not be able to afford educational trips etc. this is known as cultural deprivation.
Parents are often show frustration at not being there and being able to help their children in addition to not getting to see them as much as the teachers do. Parents may be reluctant to express their concerns because of cultural beliefs related to the authoritative position of the teacher. Parents may also be unsure of how to express their concerns to the teachers. Research shows that parents provide a passionate feeling that is highly personalized and comes with a history and a future. During a power struggle between a parent and a child, you will see emotions seldom seen by two people.
Children are hindered by these kinds of schools, teachers and peers lay a big role in the children’s lives. Some teachers are there for the income it will bring into their house hold and not the well-being of the child and students are pressued by their peers into thinking that education is lame and for losers. In most cases this is what children of low income go through but not all. Many may not realize that the surroundings of children may sometimes affect their future. Being raised in a low income area surrounded by people living the same lifestyle as you as if struggling is the norm of society.
Children who are not loved will find it difficult in the future to make long lasting friendships. Children will feel isolated and unhappy. It is important that children are loved and care for properly. A key economic factor that may influence development is unemployment. Parents who are on low income might have children wearing clothes that are too small for them.
These children may leave home with the intent of living successful lives, but may soon find out that hardships come along and divert their plans. “Young adults are taking longer to start acting like adults” (Feldman, 2014, p 451). “It is also understood that recent economic circumstances, such as the high cost of living and high youth unemployment rates, have made living away from home more difficult (Mitchell & Gee, 1996) and perhaps have resulted in greater acceptance of returns under certain conditions” (Mitchell & Gee, 1996). One of the reasons that boomerang children return home is due to economic problems. They leave home and find that living life away from home is costly and most of them are working for
There are quite a few here are just some of the differences. Children of single parent’s families are more likely to have chores and responsibilities at a younger age. This is simply because there is one adult/ parent missing to help the other adult/ parent. It is more stressful in single parent households. Not only does the single parent have to be the homemaker, the cook, and the breadwinner.
This can be damaging to a child because they feel as though one parent is paying the other to keep them. This is usually interpreted negatively. No matter how bad the situation is, if the child is not exposed to the financial distress of the parents, they will not be affected. Children that have no contact with one of their parents, usually suffer the most. Children whose parents divorce will be more likely to be isolated and antisocial than sociable and integrate.
Adults are thought of having high expectations for their children and the negative assumptions would have a huge impact on the outcome for the kids. Parents these days expect their children to grow up by the same morals and values that they themselves were raised in. But there is one problem that I can see happening already, and that is that some parents may want more for their children, while as other parents may not care what happens to their children as far as which direction they are heading in life. The adult expectations can cause more problems within the families because there may be too much pressure put onto the youth of today. Pressure as in getting a job, to get married and have a successful career, and to the youth of today, these expectations are too high.
These flawed parenting skills become inconsistent and the parents tend to be non-supportive of their children. When parents are working in the household, children are influenced. Parents with adequate amounts of money are more likely to show more affection and warmth when raising
