  • Violence Single Parent

    The problem with violence in the schools is fundamentally based on several major issues. These issues are in a variety of fields, not any one field. These issues range from the structure of modern schools to the foundation of the modern family. The schools today are now set up as they have never been before.

  • Accepting Responsibility Single Parent
    496 words
    As a parent with a young child, your main goal is to teach him responsibility. When children are growing up, especially your own children, you only want what is best for them. You want them to make good decisions and the right choices.

Citizens, families, and policy makers want new programs and policies within the juvenile justice system.

  • Two Parents Or One

    Two Parents Or One? Family life is much different today than what it used to be. Several years ago mothers would stay at home with their children while the father went to work to support his family, but it is nothing like that today in American households. Today it is common for children to be raised by just one of their parents, and those children are often disadvantaged in several ways. The most consistent finding from studies of family structure shows that single parents exert weaker controls...

    Last year, the Maryland NAACP released a report concluding that "the ready access to a lifetime of welfare and free social service programs is a major contributory factor to the crime problems we face today." (1) Their conclusion appears to be confirmed by academic research. For example, research by Dr. June O'Neill's and Anne Hill for the U. S.

    2,420 words
    A wide range of data and developments are cited to demonstrate that the family is under stress and is even in danger of breaking up. However, it is important to note that many sociologists wholly or largely reject this thesis that the family is breaking up, and favor instead a different model of analysis and interpretation.

But it is the imperfection of our social structure that is to blame. These flaws allow the perpetuation of poverty. This unending cycle is a stark contrast to the American ideal that everyone has the opportunity to succeed in our society. A debate that illustrates this argument is centered on a concept...
