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.

The government should also ensure that the cost of day-care is kept reasonable, so that more children can benefit from it, while giving their parents the freedom and opportunity to pursue and accomplish some of their goals. With all said and done, I think day-care is not a bad place for a child to be after all, as long as no one takes advantage of the situation. This means that the people supervising the children in day-care centers should not take advantage of their parents’ absence to mistreat them, and neither should the parents use day-care as an excuse not to spend quality time with their young ones.
Children that grow up without their parents Parents should make their children their first priority, give them attention, love, and learn to communicate with them. If children were to be given more emotional support they would have high self-esteem, and be more productive in life. When there are absent parents’ children usually are effect emotionally, physically and even mentally. Single parents sometimes tend to pay more attention to work or other things than their children. That can cause children to believe that they are not wanted nor loved.
However, both parents who were together before one either decided to leave as a single parent is a hard thing to do, because its show that one other doesn’t care about is part of life with a child. A single parenting doesn’t work out as together very well to raise a child. The problem is that the other parent doesn’t have time to take care of child but so decided to left unexplained why for children have gone through along with single parenting instead both parents. The divorce between parents can be hard on children, since they used to be part and do something together as a family. The impact of divorce on children, therefore, most react to their parents’ divorce with painful emotions, including sadness, confusion, and fear of abandonment, guilt, misconceptions, anger, loyalty conflicts,
When this divorce prevails and all the court dates are done, are the parents doing everything that they can to help their child cope, or are they making this harder on the children than it has to be? Many children disagree with their parents on the effects that the divorce had on them. A large portion of parents feel that if they are stern yet gentle about telling their children of their decision that it will not affect the children as much and that the children will be more accepting, however, the children think no matter how the situation is presented, the effects are the same. Some of the troubles that the children may encounter will be left unspoken, for the children feel that they won't be heard or for fear of punishment for showing how they truly feel. This may lead to secrets from parents, rebellion, and emotional distress.
In contrast, children whose parents are less accepting are inclined to develop lower self-esteem and less self-control. Thus, they may behave when the parents are around (out of fear of punishment) but misbehave when on their own. The second dimension of parenting behavior is parental control, or strictness of parental standards.

370). The problem with single parent is the fact that usually the single parent does not have the time to help the child develop a close relationship with them. Another problem is how can a child build a strong relationship with a parent they do not live with and often do not see on a regular basis. The simple fact is that children need both of their parents in the household to build a close relationship with and to teach them to respect the parents authority. True, not all children from two parent households have close relationships with their parents, but it is much more likely.
Single-parent families are commonly targeted for controversial issues. We must be careful that we don’t stereotype these when they’re very hard to take care of themselves and their children. We do however need to notice distinct patterns in children who give up in a single parent home and what problems they face.

The parents might go through a lot providing for their children, but we cannot forget the efforts of the children that are making it without two parents and becoming strong, independent, self-sufficient individuals.
Both parents are critical for a child’s growth and development. Not having a parent may impact both child and parent adversely. “Children with one parent are at higher risk of delinquency, then, because there is one less person capable of supervision” (Anderson, 576). It seems only logical that a child raised by one parent would have a harder time trying to stay out of trouble. Individual and Contextual Influences on Delinquency: The Role of the Single-parent Family an article written by Amy Anderson focuses on the single-parent family role.
Separating mothers and fathers in a childbearing family will lead the mother or father to having to split the roles or replace the role of the other parent in the household while the child might only be allowed to live with one parent for a certain amount of time. Single parent childbearing families face dependency among government support programs while the single parent may or may not be receiving child support that alone is not enough to remove the financial burden that single parents incur.

Single parents who may later decide to marry often times face large scale problems as a result of becoming blended. This includes methods of parenting
