Parenting and Parenting Styles

Freshman (College 1st year) ・English ・APA ・5 Sources

Parenting is the way of promoting and sustaining the development of a child from childhood into adulthood. There are 4 major recognized parenting styles in psychology nowadays namely; permissive, authoritarian, neglectful, and authoritative. Each of the styles has different traits and brings out unique responses in the kids used on. The paper intends to discuss some parenting challenges.

 Failed marriages in the 21st are on the rise, and these have made the parenting a ways more challenging than in previous years. On the divorced parents, there is sizable instability in the family as compared to the stability that is existing to the parents that are happily married. There are far more step parents than there used to be. As such, parenting becomes a daunting task, as the role cannot be fulfilled satisfactorily.

As years have passed, the art of whipping child has gone from a parenting technique to been child abuse (Horvath, Lee & Bax, 2015). The government has labeled the act as violence against the children. A good smacking in the early days would contribute in shaping the ways of a child. Children should be protected from abuse, but the current laws fail to draw the distinction between motivated physical contact and been vicious to your child.

A good number of the population is engaging in immoral behavior that ultimately leads to having a child without properly planning for the youngster (Yu, Wei  & Lai Chu Fung, 2015). The parent has no idea of how to bring up the child in their young ages. Soon, such guardians give up on raising the child and leave that duty to the child itself. The kid has no idea on what is right and wrong and as such would do anything for survival.

In conclusion, parenting is an enormous task, and proper preparation is necessary before a person ventures into it. People should consult the health personnel with skills on parenting for them to be prepared to raise children of their own.

My GPA is 4.0 and I’ve always been doing everything myself, but there is a class which I was about to fail thus my GPA would decrease first time in so many years. I ordered few assignments to be completed with and you did a great job! Thanks to you I still remain one of the best students on campus.

I am on my maternity leave now, so I spend a lot of time at home taking care of my little son. I’ve decided to get one more higher education degree while I’m spending so much time at home and applied for distance learning in one online college. But caring a baby takes even more time then I excepted so I’m the way too busy to write the complicated masters level research works, but is so-so-so cool! Thank you for that you exist! I don’t know what I would do without you all!
