Research on cause and effects of growing up in a single parent family. Studies show that it 's more common for the children to be lonesome and feel they are distance from the people around them. Children feel like they are more independent and aware because they already know that living without one of their parents, life will be significantly more difficult. If you 're a child only with a mother it 's more likely for you to be uncomfortable around men, while growing up because they are not used a father or male figure. They grow up without a fatherly role model to show them basic men activities, including hunting and fishing and so on.
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.
Not having moral models, in parents own lives, may mean that being a moral mirror is difficult, it is never too late to develop one's own spirituality. Spending time with children is essential to their development of self-esteem and will one day lead to how they will parent their own children. Too many parents are buying their children's love; parents have to realize the importance their presence has. Distant parents produce children who have never developed the people skills you need to succeed in life. I feel that without a strong and involved upbringing a child will fall through the cracks in a society where everyone is fighting for their own success and won't stop to help a struggling person.
Fathers Incorporated stated, “Fatherless children are twice as likely to drop out of school.” This evidence proves that the absence of a father does have an effect on a child’s education.

According to Edward Kruk, an associate professor of social work at the University of British Columbia, children with absent fathers are more likely to develop behavioral problems. Everyday Life- Global Post stated, “These problems are often a shield that kids use to protect their deep issues of abandonment, fear, and unhappiness.” This statement explains the theory that fatherless children have certain behavioral problems due to the absence of a father. Not having a father in a child’s life could cause them to develop a careless attitude and mean persona.
If a child lives in an unstable home where his/her parents do not enforce appropriate behavior the child will not display appropriate behavior in public. DNA Leader Branville McCartney makes another good point by saying, “We need to catch these things from young. A parent won’t be saying ‘my good son’ if they are found liable for their son’s actions” The root of every problem starts at home and if the problem is not corrected our society will be doomed. When parents decide to enforce appropriate behavior in their children we will begin to see a positive domino effect in our society. After reinforcing appropriate behavior in the youth we will see an increase in the protection and control parents have over their children.
In example, the neglectful parents show no warmth towards their child or control which automatically destines the child to become a social delinquent when on the other hand, a child of authoritative parents show warmth but also a good amount of control which then places their child in the non-delinquency trajectory. The empirically proven statistics of parental influence on adolescent behavior serves the purpose to have parents and future parents to realize the right way to raise a child because without the proper care and parenting style, the child could possibly become an outlier, juvenile child or delinquent.

Poverty has impact on children’s achievement in several different ways. Payne (2003) maintained that the poverty could affect children achievement though emotional, mental, financial, and role models (Payne, 2003). Thus, the children from low-income family are more likely to have self-destructive behavior, lack of control emotional response and lack of necessary intellectual, that is really important for the students under the age of 16. Nevertheless, the children who suffer from poverty are usually have low birth weight and low cognitive ability
According to studies (Asher 2006), the largest percentages 46% of parents or guardians of juveniles for felony offenses are identified most closely with an authoritarian style of parenting. Children of authoritarian parents are less likely to have trouble with self-control and regulating their emotions. However, the effect of authoritarianism also depends on how harsh, cold and punitive a parent is. This suggest that authoritarian parenting is less effective in developing child’s social skills and more likely to have poor psychological
Pam Leo stated, “Let’s raise children that won’t have to recover from their childhood”. Research continues to prove that marital discord in families with children leave a lasting impact on their offspring. Studies have shown that children who witness their parents arguing are negatively affected psychologically and behaviorally. In young children, how they regulate their emotional state and peer interactions seems to suffer the most from parental conflict. Adult children have a hard time recovering later in life if they grew up in a frequent hostile environment.
Therefore, they end up getting addicted to drugs or alcohol, which can create problems for their whole community. As adults, children who have experienced child abuse suffer long-term consequences physically and mentally, which can cause them to have more chances of abusing their own children; therefore there should be more ways to help children and adults cope with their devastating childhoods so that their children wont have to go through the same thing growing up (Mersch). A lot of different things can be the cause of child abuse, but the main reason is poverty. Poverty causes a lot of people to lose jobs and stress out. Being stressed all the time can cause many people to lose their temper and take it out on other people, even if it is their own child.
