read each six paragraphs and give me your opinion for each six of them if you agree or disagree
I talked to my cousin for this discussion. Her parenting style is by far overly permissive. Her children are given very few guidelines if any and do whatever they want. She does not discipline them. She states that they are children and will figure it out.Due to the lack of guidelines, rules and lack of accountability her children have, they behave terribly and have no respect for others. It is interesting to see them at family gatherings as my other relatives and I have a very different way of parenting. The rest of us are stricter in the sense that our children have rules and guidelines and are held accountable if they break the rules or are disrespectful or rude to others. I typically won’t let my son spend more than a few hours at a time with my cousins children because he starts to act the way they do and if he spends much more time with them than that, it takes me days to get his behavior under control. Her children are 8 (twins) and 13. My son is 6. The overly permissive style of parenting definitely has social draw backs as you can tell from my statements above regarding their behavior. It is this way at school as well and she often gets calls asking her to come talk to the teacher because one has had an outburst in class or has been mean to a classmate.
I decided to interview my friend Chris who is 26 years old with one daughter and one step daughter. He believes that discipline is important in child rearing. His stated that discipline should include spanking but should not be the first method of discipline. The whooping should not result in any signs of abuse such as welts or bruises. Chris states that a child raising should be structured as so they will understand when, what, and how things work. He states that the child should be rewarded for good behavior such as cleaning, eating dinner, or good grades.
I asked what he thinks his parenting style is and he believes that he is an authoritative parent and that he provides firm and consistent guidance combined with love and affection (Coon & Mitterer, 2014). While I do agree that he is an authoritative parent who makes sure his daughters are respectful, obedient and all around good people through the standards and discipline. He also makes sure that he spends time with them and re-enforce the idea with love and understanding.
Authoritative parents are highly responsive and demanding. These parents work with their children establish rules that are clear and easy to understand and live by (Balter, 2000).
I interviewed my boyfriend Aaron for this interview. Aaron is 27. How do you feel about Heinz’s theft? While it is still illegal, and he should not be given a pass for it, but the druggist is asking for the robbery because desperate people do desperate things. He would do the same thing if in the same situation. Do you think that the husband should have done what he did? I think it depends on the perspective of who is answering the question. If I was a judge or juror, no he should not have done so. But as a spouse, yes, he should have. Aaron displayed the second, conventional moral reasoning. He stated that the husband should not steal but he was desperate because he wanted to save his wife’s life at any cost.
The person I chose to interview is a 49-year-old male. He answered the Heinz dilemma by saying that he would steal the medicine from the pharmacy to cure his wife, and that he felt that he was justified in doing so because her life is more important and that it is the morally right thing to do in the situation.The stage that I feel the interviewee falls into the sixth stage of Kohlberg’s theory of Moral Development. In the sixth stage, the individual answers to their own their own inner consciousness and will willingly disobey laws if they violate their own ethical beliefs. The interviewee knows that stealing is legally wrong by the law, however he is still willing to steal the medicine to cure his wife because saving her life or any life is more important in this situation. I believe that one of the greatest strengths with this theory is that it can be applied universally. It is not based on gender, race or any other determining factors making it a great tool to be applied, however the only weakness that I believe it has is that there is not set standard to what morals are. Morals do change from culture to culture and this alteration can prove somewhat difficult if taken out context.
When I was 12 I really wanted to follow in my father’s footsteps and become a police officer. He was a police officer for most of my childhood into my young adult life. As I got older I realized it was not something I wanted to do. He was almost always stressed and the P.T.S.D that he had really played hard on his life and relationship with my brother and me. I knew that I couldn’t put my family through the same things. I later decided to pursue a career within the local government in environmental services. This which was sad a first turned out to be a blessing when I lost my job due to a medical reason. Once, I started I knew that accounting was what I really wanted to do, so I soon started classes to earn my degree in accounting. I feel that I am realistic only because I love to build and fix things. This does not fall in line with the career choice that I have chosen. It says that I am more of the enterprising type of personality. I think that with this most people fall into many of this personality which makes us each unique individuals.
My career choices changed with every stage I have gone through. I wanted to be a stay at home Mom because I wanted to model what my Mother was doing. As a preteen and teenager, I was very active in my church and I participated in many outreaches so wanting to be a Missionary was not farfetched. I have always have a passion for cooking and baking, I attended school to become a Chef for two years and once I was actually in the industry I realized that I enjoy cooking and baking for entertainment and hosting parties. I did not enjoy how competitive being a Chef really is and how much you had to prove yourself as a woman in that industry. Now my career goal is to become a Psychotherapist so that I can help people. I believe that my personality type would be the Social type. “Likes to do things to help people – like teaching, counseling, nursing, or giving information; generally avoids using machines, tools, or animals to achieve a goal; Has good skills at teaching, counseling, nursing, or giving information; Values helping people and solving social problems; and Sees self as helpful, friendly, and trustworthy” (www.careerkey.org)
