I feel like my parents have made many mistakes in my early childhood years and those are things that have shaped not only them, but also me. Those critical times were my learning experiences of what was a positive or negative action from just being the observer. I sometimes have a tough time loving them for those actions,
From birth we only learn what we are taught. If their r up bringing is full of corruption and tragedies you are most likely to have a heinous person. As stated in the article “Roots of Evil” “the unmistakable lesson is that ordinary ‘good’ people, devoted to their families, their religion and their country, are capable of inflicting horrific harm on those whom they dehumanize and demonize” (roots of evil, p10,pg 3 sharon begley). This meaning that people can easily be influenced by the people they trust in the most to lead them to make wrathful decisions, but, ultimately if a person was raised parentless , their outcome would be substandard due to the fact that they were never taught any morals and they could not contradict between right and wrong. Better yet, if a person has a very structured lifestyle with great parents that teach them good morals then there is a better chance they will turn out congenial.
Someone brought up in class that some individuals are “born bad” and no matter what environment they are raised in they will be deviant. The “bad” nature of these individuals outweighs any positive nurture. Personally, I don’t like the phrase “born bad”, but I strongly agree that some individuals are born with traits that would make them more prone to committing crime. Individuals will continue to be born with poor self-control and attraction to violence unless we start a eugenic movement, which is not okay. The whole “born bad” discussion was brought up when we were discussing Social Learning Theory. In this theory it is concluded that criminal activity is learned, that nobody is born knowing how to properly smoke marijuana or any other criminal
Parenting is not one of the easiest jobs in the world to have; you either are responsible enough to parent or you're not responsible enough.You have to be able to raise a child from birth and teach he/she all the necessary tools to succeed in life. As said in The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Social Work, “Parenting is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood” (245). All parents will raise their children in different ways, whether they are very strict or they’re lenient, others can be easy going and strict depending on the situation and the way they group up will shape them into who they become as adults as shown in The Glass Castle with Jeannette Walls and her parents.
Parents are the people who influence children in society today, if a child isn’t raised properly by their parents then it can show that it’s not really the child’s fault but the parenting skills of both parents or each individual. In the article about parents damaging their kids with delusions, it talks about how, “Too many parents don’t have a clue what it is to be a good parent...a poor parent damages their child...and wants their children to become a mini-me,” (Text 1). This quote could suggest how a large variety of parents don’t know the exact route on how to raise their children, the parents don’t have the right mindset on how to raise them into a better version or a whole different version of themselves, sure
In the world of psychology, there is a behavioral theory called “nature vs. nurture.” This theory suggests that all children are naturally good, that they are born with a blank slate, and they need mothering in order to become “human.” I believe there are certain things that someone needs to qualify as human. I think all infants are born naturally good, but it’s up to their guardians whether the infant turns out to be a good character. It is also up to you whether you want to be a good person with good values.
Throughout my entire life, my parents have always trusted me to let them know when something is up. They have emphasized success in school and never let me get too far behind. I have always felt loved and I know that my parents trust me to do what is best. Also, I have been happy with how my life has gone and where is will be going. Unfortunately, not everyone can say the same thing. Not all kids have parents that are alive or are involved in their lives. Your parents are the people that shape you into the person you are now. There are many different ways to parent, and there isn’t necessarily a “right” way. However, many future parents get hung up on the best way to make sure your kid isn’t a screw-up. In actuality, parents just need to make sure that their child feels happy, trusted, and loved.
Parenting has been referred to as one of the hardest yet rewarding things a person could experience in his or her lifetime. Parenting does come with its ups and downs; parents often go through a series of emotional turmoil’s, feelings of defeat, regret, guilt and most of all fear. Right alongside of these however, parents also experience pride, joy and fulfillment. The parent and child dynamic between a mother and daughter are especially sensitive, yet the bond between a mother and daughter has been said to be irrefutable. Tillie Olsen's short story "I Stand here Ironing", Amy Tan's short story "Two of a Kind" and Alice Walker's short story "Everyday Use" provides the opportunity to glimpse into three different mother daughter relationships and the intricacy's that foster their relationships. There are several
Children must have healthy relationships with their parents in order to be a strong person otherwise they will rebel and question their parents’ beliefs.
They strive to be the best they can be, in order to have the best. But, it is sad when they do not realize how much is too much. Usually a small mistake is looked over, but these parents’ can potentially have long term effects on their child’s behavior. If their child happens to not become mentally ill and seeks love, they might have a hard time showing it. If they wish to seek their own family, they will also have a hard time showing love towards their children. This is all due to the lack of a great role model in their life. Additionally, they ruin the opportunity for great, childhood memories to talk about later in life. Hopefully in the future, there can be enough awareness raised consisting of this matter that it will not be in existence
Parents do not typically start out parenting their teen or tween with poor intentions. The biggest mistakes are sometimes born from the best intentions. Understanding some of these issues can go a long way in preventing unnecessary pain and emotional problems in tweens and teens today.
You are concerned about the behaviour of one of the children with whom you are involved. You believe that this is due to learning development problems, and suspect this may be due to underlying medical issues.
Nature versus nurture is a commonly debated topic in the scientific world. For example were all child molesters abused as children themselves or are their genes or other factors to blame for their bad decisions? Genes seem to determine much about children, such as eye color and height, but do they also determine behavior and overall health, or is the environment the children were raised in to blame? For example, when a child is misbehaving, is it the parents responsibility to take the blame for their offspring's behavior due to how they have chosen to raise their son or daughter, or is the child's genetic makeup to blame for their faults? Can a child's environment override the genes a child is born with?
Marian Wright Edelman, an American children’s rights activist said, “If we don’t stand up for children, then we don’t stand for much.”(Marian Wright Edelman Quotes.). Standing up for our children is very important because they are the future of human existence. There can be many reasons that children need someone to stand up for them and be there for them. Organizations provide help when parents are unable to financially or emotionally support their children. Agencies help find orphanages and foster families for children in need, often housing kids that have been neglected or abused, with nowhere to go. Furthermore These children need a lot of love and support, and Eliada Home is one of those organizations providing quality foster care, child care, and therapy to meet that need.
