People want the best for their kids, so it's important to understand these types of caretakers. Within my daycare provider, I see the different types of workers, but I find the most common are the desperately in need of a job, the indifferent robot, the unaware filler, the interested but not pursuing, and the Heartfelt. The desperately in need of a job class pertains to those workers that don't personally care for the kids and aren't interested in a future with kids. These workers are somewhat affectionate for the kids they work with but their interest is only on the outside. They spend time with the kids how they're supposed to because they need the income, but no connection is formed.
369). Relationships are another thing that everyone needs, especially children. Children need a real strong relationship between themselves and their parents, but children from single parent families are usually denied this privilege because they are separated from one of their parents and often do not get to spend adequate time with the other. Children who have a strong relationship with their parents are more likely to respect the authority of their parents ( Curtin et al. 370).
If the parents want to have a better control of their kids and if they continue to have contact with their children they may be able to maintain consistent discipline and supervision of their children. If the kid experience visitation from the nonresident parent this increases the possibilities of a positive relation between the parent and the kid, which in the future could turn into a good trusting relation between the children and the parent. This increases the chance that in the future when the child grows up the relation will be better than it would be if the parent was never around. For many kids as they are not living a normal family life they tend to have problems with their behavior for many single mothers and fathers it is a regular problem that their child tends to have problems at school like fighting, demands a lot of attention is disobedient, is stubborn, irritable, restless or overactive (social work). Studies examining the direct effect of conflict on child well-being often do report a negative association between the child behavior and the nonresident parents situation although this is not always 100% certain Another effect of nonresident p... ... middle of paper ... ...nt's satisfaction should be taken into account along with the children's well being.
This job is a full time commitment and cannot be taken lightly, though parents don't take it as seriously as they should. If both parents are working for a two person income, one needs to become a stay at home parent in order for there to be a steady learning environment, but it can greatly affect the income that comes into the home. The patience of both the parent and the child are important to take into consideration and the parent can lose patience very easily when trying to educate their own child. Some children may act negatively if the parent is too demanding or overbearing. Another factor when trying to educate, would be motivation.
Due to this hardship, they must improvise when it comes to adjusting to the change of now raising a child and their parenting skills. They must manage their personal goals while trying to provide a stable structure for their child. Many times they fall short due to their lack of resources and stress. Regardless of their romantic relationship status, it often falls on the mother to raise the child. Even though it is important for both parents to be present in a child’s life, if a parent is participating in deviant behavior, then sometimes it is best for the child to be raised by one parent.
It is important for those people who discourage day care to realize that not all parents can afford to stay at home with their children all day, as much as they would like to. This is because they need to attend to other pressing matters. In the end, the child benefits from this as the living earned by the parent during this time, or even education earned during this time, will benefit the child in future. In addition to the above, it is worth noticing that children in day-care tend to be better adjusted people, due to spending time with people outside their own families. This teaches them how to interact with others.
Parent fears becoming unemployed and eventually living in poverty. V. All aspects associated with being a single parent may not all be negative depending on the child and the parents strive to create a better life for themselves and the child. Controversy over the idea that both parents should assume equal responsibility in raising a child has become a heavy topic in America due to the belief that missing one parent can affect the child emotionally because of the lack of family structure. Therefore, having two parents in one household assuming equal responsibility in raising a child does not always advance the child’s education level, decrease emotional stress, and enhance financial support. First, being in a single parent home may affect the advancing of the child’s education level by placing the child with the parent they do not favor which may affect encouragement to be successful.
Parental friendships will surely help build a solid base for future relationships. At some point during a child’s development, the parenting role must turn into friendship. Many people feel that there should be a thick line between parents and children but I strictly disagree. Being friends with your children can come in handy because it is also a type of supervision, which helps parents see if they are walking in the right direction. As soon as they ensure their children are safe, they will be able to manage these aspects of their lives by themselves.
In “Concerted Cultivation and Natural Growth”, author Lareau states in “middle class parents engage in a process of concerted cultivation”. This process alleviates stress from parents’ lives and serves as a purpose of constructing activities for their children occupying their children’s time. Middle class children tend to challenge parent and authoritative views. On the other hand working class families differ usually because their leisure time is not controlled. Parents distinguish who is the adult and who is the child and don’t use persuasive discussions.
