Disobedience in Children - “How can you learn lessons in here. Why, there’s hardly room for you, and no room at all for any lesson-books!” (Carroll, 1993 p21).

During the third stage and fourth stage, the concrete and formal operations, the child will typically ask questions to understand the complexions of things surrounding the child and to satisfy their curiosity and exploring mind....   [tags: Children] 1712 words

The Ethics of Genetically Enhancing Children - The term designer children is unnerving at first to many. The idea of parents designing the genetic makeup of their offspring makes children seem like a commodity in a genetic free market. Thoughts of a dystopian society like the one in the film “Gattaca” come to mind. However, taking an immediate repugnant stand against genetic enhancement is not well-founded. A more open-minded inspection of the issue reveals that the idea of parents improving their children’s life prospects through genetic engineering (provided it is safe) is, at its core, not unethical....   [tags: designer children] 1314 words
