These negative feelings are due to dads not regularly seeing and interacting with their kids. Comparably, couples without kids experienced barely any change in their sense of family well-being. Consequently this creates a since of detachment between all the parties involved. For moms who usually are the primary care taker of kids after the split it usually is an economic stress trying to raise kids on her own. Alas at she would jump at the very opportunity at a new relationship whether it’s healthy or not, and quickly sign herself up for another relationship that will end on bad terms, just for the help.
When a child is abducted and then released or escape it is hard for them to reinstate within society because they don’t have that same trust. ‘”The abduction of children has destroyed the lives of thousands of children and their families”’ said Becker (“Uganda Child Abduction…”). ‘Child soldiers don’t always understand the risk of the battlefield, and they are usually more tolerant than adults to harsh living” (“Child Soldiers”). Some children even join military groups willingly. This could be for a number of reasons, such as being from a poor family or them feeling like they are not getting enough attention at home.
There are many reasons why teenagers should give their babies up for adoption. If babies are left with teenage mothers, there is a chance that they will be neglected and won’t have a very stable life. If the parent chooses to look after the child, they might not be able to afford it and they might have to drop out of school. Raising a baby is very time consuming and this makes it difficult for the parent to work. Whereas, if the child is adopted the mother can work, get an education and spend time with friends.
Can’t they be happy without any children? Studies show that adults living with young children experience more negative emotions like depression, anxiety, anger, etc., than adults do that do not live with young children. “Parents' other social statuses - particularly their marital, employment, and socioeconomic status - influence the association between parenthood and mental health (page 43).” I feel like that is an obvious thing – obviously a single parent, parents with lower education and household income, and unemployed parents will report higher levels of depression because society makes them feel they are not fit to be a parent or they are not doing it the right way. Stress is a big result in having children – mostly because of the high financial cost of raising children. Also, dealing with parenthood and paid work outside the home adds to the stress.
Parenthood is supposed to a team effort in raising a child or children. As an adult raised by a single parent, I know now in my later years that my mother was not to raise my siblings and I alone. Of course, it is helpful if there is a subsidiary family support system such as grandparents, aunts or uncles but ultimately it is not the same as having a mother and father cohabitating raising the child together. Single parents are not always the ones that make the choice of becoming a single parent. There are multiple factors that make this situation come into place such as adultery, domestic abuse, drug abuse, infidelity or simply irreconcilable differences between the two individuals.
To meet the needs of the so called "rat race", often both parents have to work. Therefore children often spend their formative years without the care and guidance offered by parents. "Latch-key" children have independence thrust upon them when they most need care. They are often resentful of their parents, to a degree that they tend to do the same to their own children. Children without supervision or children left wanting care and nurturing, tend to behave in ways that are socially and morally repugnant.
There is no known fact to answer this question because there have been many kids that have been abused physically, mentally, and sexually by his or her parents but they did not grow up to be serial killers. According to Joel Norris, he states that, “Parents who abuse their children, physically as well as psychology instill in them an almost instinctive reliance upon violence as a first resort to any challenge.” (Norris, 1989) In some cases parents believe that if they discipline their children it will make them tougher when they grow up. Often sometimes children don’t see that when they are being disciplined it makes a child start to lack love for their parents and it makes the child go out and do things like setting fires, misbehaving in school and the need to torture animals to release the anger they have built up inside of them from the hurt that their parents have called all because they wanted to discipline their child (Norris, 1989). When a child torture or kill an animal does that automatically mean that the child will grow up to become a serial killer? Or is it the only way a child can release all the hatred and angry that they are suppressing from being abused by their parents?
With high teen pregnancy rates, the lack of social exposure with homeschooling appeals to concerned parents. With a more controlled environment, and parents able to monitor their children’s activities it brings a sense of security. School administration as well as teachers disagree and argue that children who are homeschooled are not getting proper social exposure or education. Teachers feel that some parents lack the proper credentials to educate their children. Since there are no education requirements for those who choose to homeschool their children, this is a legitimate concern.
Love throughout the household A single parent home has some obvious disadvantages that could have a negative impact on anyone that is a member of that household. Children in the household should grow up with both a mother and a father. When kids grow up with single parents they tend to spend more time alone, which could allow them to engage in irresponsible behavior. A single parent will not be as involved in the children’s life as much because of work, or other responsibilities. A married couple could divide those responsibilities and schedule their work hours so that the kids hardly spend time alone.
Because we are only human, we tend to make mistakes more often than not, and because we make those mistakes, it is hardly impossible to argue that humans are good. From a very young age, our parents work hard to teach us to share our toys and to play nice with our peers, but what some don’t realize is that if our parents weren’t around to teach us that, we would never learn, and eventually grow up to be unapologetically bad. This is because it is part of human nature to keep the best for ourselves, and to keep others away from what we feel is ours. Humans are not born with the ability to want to automatically share what is theirs, and this only adds to my point of view that much more. Cabrales 2 The only reason that the world is able to function correctly, the way it has for an extremely long time, is because of the laws that have come to surface in order to keep us in line.
