During this stage or phrase children are allowed to make mistakes simply for purpose of being able to learn from the mistakes (Schaie, 1977-1978).Children are allowed to make mistakes because during this stage parents or guardians are the ones taking responsibility for decisions that will affect the child’s life. One positive aspect of my parents and step mother s making my decision or choices for me was that in regards to big decision I never felt the consequences for making the wrong or harmful decisions. However, one major consequence for my parents and stepmom making my decisions was that I was never allowed to make choices or decisions based on who I was or what I believed in. By not allowing me to make my own decisions or not my feelings, wants and beliefs into consideration my family did not allow to grow, mature or to be myself (Robinson, Smith, 2010). Individuals who are denied the opportunity to be themselves “enter a state of self-alienation, where the individual’s behaviors and actions do not reflect personal preferences, values, or desires, but rather reflect the demands or expectations of others” (Robinson, Smith, 2010). However, after leaving home I was finally in the power of making my own decisions and choices. Upon entering college I quickly learned that some questions could not be answered simply and required looking at the question from multiple angles as well as a lot of thought. Questions that cannot be answered simply and require a lot of thought are defined as ill-defined or ill structured (Broderick, Blewitt, 2015). Once I was making my own decisions and choice I soon realized that a lot of the problems or situations I encountered involved these ill-defined or ill structured problems.

How does a child receive the necessary parental guidance growing up if their parents and all other adults in their life are abusive, neglectful, and at best uninvolved? Throughout Steven King’s novella “The Body” it becomes evident that children will try to find guidance in almost anything.

We would like to start this speech off with a little comparison between what parents think and what we, being the teenagers, think. It is well known that parents and teenagers have not been always been known to agree on everything. Whether it was that haircut you got our that meal they tried to feed you. Sometimes we just don’t agree on everything. For instant, parenting in general, is often described differently depending on who you ask. According to some parents, “parenting is 50% love, 10% lies, 10% yelling and 30% unclogging toilets”. To them, “parenting is basically just listening to yourself talk because nobody else is.”.
