“We’ve called it Family Safety. We are calling it Family Safety rather than Parental Control because people don’t like that term. Both parent and definitely child don’t like the idea of controlling, blocking, or spying on them or others” (written by unknown). Most parents think to have control of your child is the way parenting works. Some of these parents find that their child rebels against their “very specific” instructions. Between parent and child, their will always be a aspect of control and rebellion but this is because it could feel like the parent doesn’t trust the kid, the kid disagrees with the judgement call, and it has been proven to happen through surveys. In Romeo and Juliet’s time, when parents tried to use authority to control …show more content…
Capulet, Juliet’s father, flexes his authority over Juliet often. Juliet usually disagrees with her father’s opinion and she often tries to get around what he tells her to do or even gives him attitude. An example is, Capulet wants Juliet to marry a wealthy bachelor named Paris. Juliet on the other hand doesn’t want to marry this man so she tells her father that he isn’t the right one for her. The words that she used were “he shall not make me there a joyful bride” (III.V.117).When Capulet insisted on the marriage Juliet pushed back. She said that he will never be what she wants and he won’t keep her happy. Capulet was not brought to shock by this, but to anger. While Juliet pushed back, Capulet did not give up. He continued to push her and command her to marry this man named Paris using his control over Juliet.After she said that he will never make her a happy wife, he got mad. When he was mad, he threatened her. He said “to go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church, or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither” (III.V.154). Even though Juliet tried to use her words and rebel to say that she shouldn’t marry Paris, he still is forcing her to do as he instructed. He keeps pushing harder, having more control. He is a parent who is controlling his kid. This could lead to serious consequences, …show more content…
No, It’s Parents” by Somini Sengupta, the article states many ways that parents control and or have surveillance over their kids. It also says how children are rebelling against their parent because the parent is trying to enforce rules and or just be too controlling for the children’s liking.When a parent tries to control the child, the child feels the need to push back and get their ground back. This what happens between parent and child. The Pew Research Center did studying to figure out if there is a connection between parents controlling their kids and if the child rebels. Surveys from the Pew Research Center found “...this monitoring is also likely to lead to arguments between parent and child” (Somini Sengupta para 14). There is study that shows that if the parents are controlling and or having surveillance that arguments will happen because the kid is pushing back and is going to rebel. The Pew Research Center found this out by surveys by real people. Children will also choose to do it their own way if they feel like they don’t know what their parent is doing. They also feel like their parent isn’t respecting the child’s freedom and don’t trust them. Ms. Clark is an author who has written many books about parenting styles has an insight that is helpful and shows the connection between control and rebellion. Ms. Clark the author says “it’s too easy to get involved in surveillance… that undermines out influence as parents. Kids interpret
Do parents make teens act they way they act? The Capulet’s over parent their children. Juliet at the beginning of the play is obedient and it seems afraid and it she seems afraid of her parents. Lady Capulet does this because she wants her daughter to be proper and raised good where she knows right from wrong. Capulet is hard on Juliet for the same reason but he wants her to live her life how he wants her to live it.
57). This shows that teens are rebellious because they will want to try to make the parent stop bothering them by doing the opposite. Teens don’t only rebel against parents the may disobey older relatives too. An example of this is when Tybalt argues with Lord Capulet: “TYB: It fits, when such a villain is a guest: / I’ll not endure him. / CAP: He shall be endured: / What goodman, boy! I say, he shall: go to; / Am I the master here, or you? go to. / You’ll not endure him! God shall mend my soul, / You’ll make a mutiny among my guest! / You will set cock-a-hoop! you’ll be the man! / TYB: Why, uncle, ‘tis a shame.”(1.5.76-84). This shows how Tybalt was being rebellious because he was trying to fight with Romeo but, when he gets told no by Lord Capulet he still argues with his uncle. A number of teens may argue with their parents when they are told to not do something in hope of changing the parent’s mind. Another example of this is showed when Juliet argues with her parents: “CAP: …But fettle your fine joints ‘gainst Thursday next, / To go with Paris to Saint Peter’s Church, / Or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither, / …. / JUL: Good father, I beseech you on my knees, / Hear me with patience but to speak a word.” (3.5.157-163). This shows that Juliet is defying her parent’s wishes because she is arguing against her dad when he told her that she has to marry Paris. Adolescents
Parental expectations are basically the way parents expect their kids to live their lives. The definition of expectation is “the act of expecting; to have a prospect of future good or profit”. Parents often expect their kids to be perfect. By this I mean make all the right decisions, do everything the way the parents want it to be done, and live up to their parents standards. I don’t always agree with a lot of today’s parental expectations because some parents try to benefit themselves instead of the kids. In this essay, I will describe parental expectations from today and from the play Romeo and Juliet. I will link some of the examples of expectations to movies, or real life scenarios.
The Relationship Between Parents And Children In William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet The tragedy of 'Romeo and Juliet' is the result of feuding between two noble families in Verona/Italy. Romeo was born into the Montague household, who were the more controlled, quieter family. They did not 'enjoy' the fights therefore tried to avoid the feuds.
Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy play written by Shakespeare. It is set in Verona, Italy during the 13th century, two noble families are feuding and two young lovers, one from each family fall in love. Romeo and Juliet have to keep their love a secret due to the ongoing war between their families. This suggests that their relationship with their parents is not one of trust. Relationships between children and parents then and now are very different because today parents are much closer to their children emotionally however in the time the play was set in the parents and children were distant from each other, this may be because nowadays parents are the prime carers but then people would
Romeo and Juliet’s lack of parental guidance encourages their disloyalty towards their respective families and their willingness to disregard their identity as a Montague or Capulet, creating a new identity based off of Romeo and Juliet’s relationship for them. Romeo and Juliet both do not receive proper guidance from their respective parents, which causes them to not hold as much importance for their respective families. As a result, Romeo and Juliet begin to disregard and not take pride in their identity as a Montague or Capulet, as Juliet is willing to “no longer be a Capulet” (II.ii.39) for Romeo, while Romeo also considers himself a Capulet after their marriage. Romeo and Juliet start to consider their relationship more important than
Romeo and Juliet by Shakespeare has many conflicts concerning the adults and children of the play. The fault of the numerous conflicts throughout Romeo and Juliet is clearly to blame of the parents and adult figures in the play, clearly shown through the adults forcing the children into unideal circumstances, and the adults attempting to make the problems that were created better. The children although histrionic, were prompted towards bad decisions and convinced towards erroneous plans.
Welcome to Verona, a town where two rival families and their accomplices make terrible decisions. For one, telling a child to get married at thirteen years old is a bad parenting decision on its own. In “Romeo and Juliet,” people got married and had kids at an extremely young age. Being so young, people of those ages tend to not make rational decisions; however, even the adults in the tragedy couldn’t wisely make decisions. Capulet forcing Juliet to marry Paris caused Juliet stress and made it harder for Romeo and Juliet to be together.
William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet focus on the two young lovers, Romeo and Juliet, who fall in love and die within a span of three days. Romeo and Juliet illustrate how the love brings them together to over power the control of their relationship. The moment that Romeo and Juliet declare their love for one another, they try to keep their love a secret since they are the children of the feuding families, the Montagues and the Capulets. Initially their families would be outraged against their relationship that Romeo and Juliet propose to hide the truth of their love. Once Romeo and Juliet reveal to the Nurse and Friar Lawrence their plans to marry, their relationship is nothing but a risk of problems. Romeo is unafraid to show his love that he teases Tybalt teasing him about falling in love with Juliet, although not explicitly. However, the deaths of Mercutio and Tybalt, occur when Romeo and Juliet take actions to protect themselves, but they are not however, protected. Juliet protects her relationship by committing a false death only for Romeo to believe it as true. As a result, the act to protect Romeo and Juliet’s relationship a secret are examples of the failed actions both Romeo and Juliet try to prevent; however, it is not ‘fate’ that control their lives and deaths.
Many readers see Romeo and Juliet as a narrative of star-crossed lovers, a dramatic tale of lovers destined for affliction. However, upon closer examination, his play may have a moral even Shakespeare himself could not have foreseen. Parenting is risky business, and can lead a child’s demise if done badly. While this is exemplified in Romeo and Juliet, in today’s society many people are growing interest in this morbid topic. It has come to light in recent years that there is a new breed of parents. “Helicopter Parents,” named for their constant hovering over their children, are steadily becoming the norm. These parents seem to have no self control when it comes to their influence within
When a parent controls the situation, the child fails because he/she does not learn. Parents should give their children more freedom by letting them be responsible for their actions if the kid
According to the article, The Authoritative Parenting Style: Warmth, Rationality, and High-Standards, “The authoritative parenting approach is linked with the most successful child outcomes.” One of the major focuses is finding a middle ground between too much freedom, and being too strict. It reflects a balance between two values, freedom and responsibility. The responsibility allows for the child to mature and organize their lives by doing tasks such as studying, getting good grades, just make to make good decisions overall. The freedom allows them to have a mind of their own; to hopefully apply making good decisions in life. It also gives them a chance to experience how the real world is. Authoritarian parenting would disagree with this tactic. There’s a belief that if a child is granted freedom, the child is being set up for failure. They do not see the point of freedom when keeping them to high-standards and strict rules will ensure that failure isn’t an option. While I can understand the point being made, it’s a bad parenting tactic. When a child doesn’t experience any bad, how are they supposed to function in the real world? They need freedom to be able to deal with disappointment or failure when they come across it when
It is important for parents to be their children's friend, but they need their parent first. Other parents don't have time for their child. They expect schools, day cares, and other institutions to raise their child. Parent’s time in children is irreplaceable. Still other parents find disciplining their child to be too much of trouble; Therefore, they allow their child to act anyway they want. Some may agree that “parenting is not a democracy but a dictatorship.” Finally, there are parents who constantly bail their child out of whatever problem they are in. Children need to know consequences for their actions. These parents are not helping their children by doing these things. Reality will one day slap their child in the face and they will
When parents get pushed around by their kids that is not good because the kids can do anything that they want to do. Some kids have parents that have rules some don’t. Most kids get
“Indeed, in some cases, parents who permit their child to lead an independent life are actually criminalised” (Furedi). Recently, researchers at the University of Virginia conducted interviews with 100 parents (Wergin). In the interview, one of the researches, Jeffrey Dill wrote “nearly all respondents remember childhoods of nearly unlimited freedom, when they could ride bicycles and wander through woods, streets, parks, unmonitored by their parents”. But when it comes to their own children, the same respondents were terrified by the idea of giving them only a fraction of the freedom they once enjoyed. Many cited fear of abduction, even though crime rates have declined significantly. The most recent in-depth study found that, in 1999, only 115 children nationwide were victims of a “stereotypical kidnapping” by a stranger; the overwhelming majority were abducted by a family member. That same year, 2,931 children under 15 died as passengers in car accidents. Driving children around is statistically more dangerous than letting them roam freely. My parents would never let me out of their sight or go anywhere without some sort of supervision until I was about thirteen years old (Wergin). My mom was always on the lookout for possible predators and went so far as to never let us sit Santa’s lap at the mall because he could be a sexual predator or let us have juice from our neighbor as a reward for raking his yard,
