Coming from a single parent home, kids really are less fortunate than those staying in a two parent household. Children in a single parent home don’t have as many option as the children do in a two parent household. The reason I say that is because they are less fortunate and their options on things are low because their isn’t a stable income. Choosing this topic was a good pick for me because I can relate more on the situation and the struggle of being raised with just my mom doing everything. Single parents work twice as hard to make sure everything is paid before their children can receive anything nice or new to wear.
Body Paragraph One: Topic Sentence (something reader doesn’t know) All across the globe, there are children growing up in single-parent households, and through some research
Single parents don’t necessarily raise their children alone; they can have support from family and friends. Single parents also tend to parent better, they are stricter with their decisions and their children respect their choices. When it comes to creating a healthy family, it's not about the number of parents, but the quality of parenting a child receives that is most important. A home is only "broken" when healthy family interactions break down, for example when people stop communicating adequately. In the situation where both parents are raising the child, but the family situation isn’t healthy it can do more harm on the child than good. Certain situations such as a violent household
Single parent vs. two parent homes and the effect it has on their child’s viability, intimacy and conflict in their intimate relationships.
Children born to single or unwed parents causes serious problems and discussions not only within society, but also the welfare system. Becoming a parent seems to be one of the most beautiful things life has to offer to people. The laughter of children warms the heart like nothing else can, and the way their eyes light up when they receive something as small as a piece of candy reminds us all that the little things in life are the most important. However, children require time and money which often gets overlooked by many people. Raising a child with two married parents seems difficult enough, but today many people are having children out-of -wedlock which also seems to create more single parent homes and puts more pressure on that one parent who struggles to support the child. From 1960 to 2000, out-of-wedlock births grew by 600%
In 2002, number of children living with their single parent was 16.5 million (Davidson). The most important thing is that each single-parent family is different from the other. Children who live with a widowed mother will definitely be living a different home life from children with divorced parents or the one whose parents were never married. Children of the parents who were divorced will always have some kind of relationship with parents and parents’ partners. But it is obvious that children from single-parent families face tougher times economically as well as
Yancee Fricks Mrs. Olson English III - Per. 6 18 Apr. 2017 Creative Title Did you know 30% of children in the United States live in a single-parent household as of 2012? ( )Every year this number is on the rise and it is causing children everywhere to suffer. When children are raised in an environment with only one parent they can have less opportunities and less supervision than a child with two parents. Children should not be raised in single-parent households because it can lead to abuse from parents, violence in children and poverty.
The number of children born to unmarried mothers for the middle class has grown to forty-four percent and it used to be thirteen percent. The least educated Americans that have had children and are unmarried have grown from thirty-three percent to fifty-five percent. The highest educated has went from two percent to six. The numbers have grown because society has became more accepting of children being born outside of marriage- the media has a lot to do with that I think. I believe that it is better for children to be raised in a two-parent home; it provides stability for the child. Stability promotes growth for the child; for instance, these children are most likely to graduate from high school and also further their education beyond high school. Children raised with two parents in the same home have emotional security and
One of the studies show how single parenthood can be bad for a child, but also can a two-parent home with a no financial problems but stress and conflict between the pair can be as or even more destructive to a child. “A two parent, financially stable home with stress and conflict would be more destructive to children than a one parent, financially stable home without stress and conflict” (Roiphe 61). This is a statistic from Sara S. McLanahan, she is basically stating that a single parent with good finances and no stress or conflict can be much better than a home with two parents and financial stability but with strass and conflict can greater hurt the development of the child. The author agrees with this statement, but overall the author believes that all people should realize that single parenthood is becoming more of a normal thing than before and we as Americans should realize this and should help single parents become successful and have it were they can be financially successful without a

There is plethora of reasons that cause mothers and fathers to indulge in the hardships of single parenting in which conclude: death of significant other, divorce, unintended pregnancy (most stereotypical circumstance), single parent adoption, ect. These reasons play a part in the child's mental and physical state and have the possibility for unpremeditated effects in the mere future-again every individual predicament is unique to
Many children in today’s society have grown to become successful and mentally stable whether they had two parents, or one parent raise them. With everything in life it is never about quantity, but quality. This could apply to single parenting as well. As long as a parent create a stable and nurturing home their child will grow up to be a mature, hard working, independent, and loving adult. Family structure should not be the main focus when it comes to raising children, the focus should be on the values and life lessons that are taught to the child as they mature in life. Family structure in the last decade have change drastically. Children are being raised by same sex parents, grandparents, extended family, a single father, or a single
Some people believe that a couple who choose to separate for their own happiness is extremely selfish and curial to a kid. Grow up in a single family, Children might be less susceptible to assimilate to the society than other normal families’ kids do. Meanwhile, children were more likely to have inharmonious relationships with both parents, and they would have higher chance to divorce when they grow older.
Divorce and out-of-wedlock childbearing are now epidemic in American society. Both forms of disrupted families are harmful to children and to society. The children of single parents are more likely to do poorly in school, commit crimes, and become single parents themselves.
