The Parent Vs. One Parent Households

- Two-Parent vs. One-Parent Households Being a parent is no easy job for a mother or a father in even the best of circumstances, in fact not only is it the hardest job one will ever do, it is also a job that is never done. Being a parent is not a nine to five job with nights and weekends off. Rather it is a twenty-four seven job until the day that you die. This is not to say that parenting does not have its rewards. Overall, most parents would probably be the first to tell you it is the best job and the most rewarding thing they have ever done in their lives....   [tags: Family, Parent, Mother, Love]

The Problem Of Being A Parent

- The question of being fit to be a parent lingers. What or who is a good parent. Suter claims that parents by testing are doing what’s best for their fetus, and therefore, testing is a sign of being a good parent (Suter 247). However, the DRC offers a different definition of what it means to be a good parent by claiming that “good parents will care about raising whatever child they receive and about the relationship they will develop, not about the traits the child bears” (Center 6). It could be argued that a potential parent who would abort a potential child because this child does not fit the ‘perfect expectation’ be considered fit-to-be parent....   [tags: Pregnancy, Abortion, Fetus, Parent]

The, The Undercover Parent, By Harlan Coben

- In Harlan Coben 's, The Undercover Parent, Coben claims that it is okay to install spyware in children’s technological devices. He says this because it can prevent children from, “gambling away their entire life savings", or from cyberbullying others “until the point they committed suicide", or even from the situation where there was a “young boy unknowingly conversing with a pedophile” (Coben 66). However, I believe parents do not need spyware to prevent these things from happening.
