According to the National Survey of Children’s Health, Adolescents aged six to seventeen who grew up with only one biological parent and one stepparent exhibited the highest results when it comes to being disobedient (www.marripedia.org). These statistics are crucial due to the fact that children who misbehave can have more difficulties adjusting to adulthood compared to those who grew up with both biological parents. When adolescents get to that stage in their life where they are entering adulthood the trouble they get into can develop and grow to be detrimental to their role in society. Many of these types of children are more attracted to rebelling and most have psychological issues that may have been neglected. Parents do need to be attentive to those red flags which indicate a negative change in behavior.
Coming from a single parent home, kids are less fortunate than those staying in a two parent household. Children in a single parent home do not have as many options as the children do in a two parent household. The reason I say that is because they are less fortunate, and their options on things are low because there isn’t a stable income. Choosing this topic was a good pick for me because I can relate more to the situation and the struggle of being raised with just my mom doing everything. Single parents work twice as hard to make sure everything paid before their children can receive anything nice or new to wear.
But it is not clear that we should look at these variables in isolation from one another. In real life, compared to married parents, single parents tend to be poorer (because there is not a second earner in the family) and less well-educated (in part because early childbearing interrupts or discourages education), and this is what matters for their children. Regardless of family structure, the quality of parenting is one of the best predictors of children 's emotional and social well-being. Most single-parent households are run by mothers, and the absence of a

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.
Lakaya Peyton ENG 1110-02 Ms. McCarthy 8 April 2014 Single Parent Households: Thesis statement: 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.

According to the American Bar Foundation, Roughly, half of all confined people in the United States are parents. Offspring of imprisoned parents additionally exhibit trouble transitioning to fruitful grown-up lives, indicating high rates of unemployment, lower instructive accomplishment, and more serious danger of contribution of illegal crimes. Children who are involved in illegal actions are less likely to want to further their education. For example, General U.S. school graduation rate of 40% drops to around one to two percent among kids with detained mothers ("White House”, n.d.). Mothers pay a very important role in a child’s life.
