The term: cooperative interactions is recognized as the most important quality of parent-child relationship. See Chapter 7 In Holden’s text
Question: Using Authoritative Parenting and “the art of parenting,” what family scenarios are critically important to use cooperative interactions between parent and child. Summarize, and then critically analyze:
Examples tor use — Examples only – then are good – BUT you may use other appropriate scenarios
. A toddler is ready for very early for preschool
• Father is keeping a watch on John’s peers (and the dad’s perceived peer pressure on John)
• Parenting a 16-year-old son who is being counseled for substance abuse,
• A 20-year-old girl who quite suddenly dropped out of college, after acquiring a 3.98 GPA during the first two and a half years of happiness and success, according to all who knew her.
• A seven-year old boy has been reported three times has sent you a note for Little Tom being very aggressive in the playground.
• You are interacting with an 11-year old girl who wants to dress much differently on weekends, then she was just two weeks ago.
Question 2: Who are we really going to be when we grow up?
Reference the subject of “Harris’ Theory,” that discusses how peers and very close friends “seem” to take over the cognitive and social life of each other as confidants. And, Harris’s theory goes on to say – these adolescents go on to develop psychological characteristics that had very little to do with earlier adolescent socialization that parents — were highly involved with.
QUESTION: Write a short summary and a lengthy analysis on each two parts of this question. Must use and cite empirical evidence.
Part 1: How does Harris theory make good sense insofar as peers, close friends, and confidents help make “various trajectories” in personality development possible. This means, close friends do have a powerful impact on objectives and values on teens — even up through adulthood. These differences in how parents lead their teens regardless of outstanding parenting and parents’ desires on teens’ long-term aspirations.
Part 2: Challenge Harris theory by empirical evidence and your own critical thinking regarding the power of parents their goals on how the teens will be as adults. You must take the role of a parent, in addition to addressing your experiences as a teen. whether or not you are now a parent yet.
Chapter 12 and the slides I just sent you — covers Child maltreatment.
Senario: You are a strong, loving parent (mother or father) and leading your children to be well behaved, happy, and successful in all ways possible. With you own age, going from 35– 49, you are getting – more than usual – frustrated. This is because one child, at 9, seems like no longer a “child,” and leaves the house to play, almost anywhere. At this same time, your 18-year old son is acting more like 9, as he doesn’t seem to want to “leave the house” and start to study more, or think of a career, after high school graduation.
You just now start verbally abusing (not intentionally) both children, and unfortunately your spouse as well.
Part 1: Name any mental disturbance or even mental disorder listed in the chapter (or another one in Holden’s text) or other scholarly reference, and briefly define this problem – to the kids and the spouse.
Part 2: Write an analysis “to fix the problem,” using cited empirical evidence and your critical thinking. Please write two short or one long paragraph to respond.
