In adulthood, Amato and Sobolewski shared the three processes that mediate long term effects of marital discord: socioeconomic attainment, relationship instability, and the quality of relationships between offspring and parents (902). Parental discord interferes with children’s educational attainment, leaves them with inadequate interpersonal skills, and a history of unstable intimate relationships, or undermines close ties with their parents and kin, children’s distress is likely to be reinforced or even amplified after reaching adulthood (Amato and Sobolewski 902). Amato and Sobolewski support Grych and Finchman that overt conflict between parents is a direct stressor for children whether younger or older (903). Parents that fight frequently, tend to display less warmth toward their children and discipline them more harshly (Amato and Sobolewski 903). For these reasons, children in high-conflict households are at increased risks for antisocial behavior, anxiety, depression, and difficulty in concentrating (Amato and Sobolewski 903).
The real cases of abuse when the child is not lying or over exaggerating the parents actions of words, can be so threatening. The parents have the authority over the children that in a serious situation, other adults tend to take the parents word for it. Some kids can go years being emotionally abused and no one would find out, either because they are too afraid to tell or because they’ve come to the conclusion that the abuse is acceptable or normal. Most emotionally abusive parents don’t have enough emotional stability on their own to take responsibility for their
Parental Rights Parents have legal authoritative power over their children. Parents tend to be strict to look out for their child(s) best interests, but others may disagree that strict parenting is morally wrong, for it robs the children of their own rights. In this case, being strict is defined as the parent loving their child so much that they set boundaries for them, and this includes verbal and physical forms of discipline to help the child distinguish morality--what is right and what is wrong. In this paper, I will argue that strict parenting the moral way to look out for a child’s best interest. To begin, parents tend to be strict to look out for their child’s best interest.
The Typical Progression a Child Makes through a State Welfare System The paper and diagram below describe the typical progression a child makes through a state welfare system. Each figure in the diagram below links to a specific decision point described in the paper, which begins immediately after the diagram. This chart provides a model, which highlights typical decision points on a child's journey through the current foster care system. Although the format is based on federal and common state law and practice, nevertheless it is only a model. Laws vary across states, as does the capacity and practices of child welfare agencies and courts to manage their caseloads.
“Why do kids do better on every measure of social, emotional and physical well-being when they grow up with a married mother and father?” This is saying that a child will be a better person if they have mom and dad that are married to each other then what does this say about single parents or divorced parents and especially parents> children grow up as good people on every type of situation.

While Max battles for authority, his mother demonstrates many parenting techniques, which have led to severe consequences in relation to his poor behaviour. Bad behaviour influences a child's long-term growth as a human being and stunts their journey from child to mature adult. Children develop a sense of acceptable behaviour based on the methods employed by their parents. Negative behaviour comes as a result of the child feeling insecure, becoming aggressive, angry, antisocial, demanding, dependant, undisciplined and also developing a hateful desire to ‘get back at the world.’ These bad behavioural aspects are outcomes reached as the parent has reacted to become over-controlling with orders, reminders of poor behaviour and warnings. With the parent being the unquestioned boss, it is common for the child with an authoritarian in the household to feel irritable, and get angry and temperamental quite quickly.
Though these styles of parenting may be appearing to one’s judgement, most parents hope for the same end result for their kids as an independent, resilient and successful child. Believe it or not, it is not how to get there but it is achieving that goal that matters. A good parent is one who nurtures for their offspring and assures they are raised in a respectable environment. Which parent will you
I think happiness involves much more than just a lack of pain. Happiness is more than just a neutral feeling that someone has. Nozick belief of happiness involves a sort of positivity. Nozick talked about how “a happy disposition, in other words-is far more likely to result in continuing feelings of happiness”(114). The happiness that he discusses here is positive and is about feeling good.
Parenting discrepancies can cause children confusion and resentment toward one or both parents. Children who are forced to move and choose sides by their parents are immensely impacted by the stress caused by those occurrences. Although divorce is apparent in every child’s life in one way or another, those children who experience divorce first hand must be resilient to any new challenges thrown their way.
Both the surrogate mother and the recipient of the baby must weigh all the risks involved before making the decision to go through with it. (Garrett 231) The risks involved with carrying the child and its toll on the surrogate’s body, as well as psych, are a few of many risks that should be considered by the surrogate. The financial and emotional strains weigh heavily upon the couple initiating the process.

However, the couple did have the original desire and genetic elements that makes the baby theirs.
