Ileana Borrero English 064 Melinda Rising Argumentative Essay We have seen how children get out of control if they don’t have both parents together to help raise them. Children can become aggressive, scream at their parents and reduce their excitement of becoming a professional in their life. Most children with a single parent are more likely to have a negative attitude. According to the website, (unmarriedamerica. org) there was 26. 7 percent of kids living in a single parent household.
Having both parents working together to raise their children increases the possibility of having a positive life towards the child, the parents and society. They should equally share their responsibility for raising their child. When raised by both parents the child can develop a strong relationship with both his mother and father. He will be happy and wouldn’t need to worry if he ever is going to see his mom or dad again. He would know both parents care about his well being.
For example, making sure he eats, if he needs advice or anything he needs help in. The child would achieve more in school and respect one another, especially his elders. He would understand the different sexes better because he is able to have a relationship with both a male and female role model. He would know how his human body develop and if he has any question that his mother can’t answer, he could then ask his father. It can also prevent the child from running away from home, committing suicide or going to jail.
By having both parents share the responsibility of raising their child they will benefit by having less stress. They would not need to worry about a babysitter, who’s going to take care of the child or if they have to stay home by themselves. They would know what is happening with their child. For example, if he has a problem at school, with his friends or teacher that is worrying him. They could help him with his homework or help him study for the test. They may also watch television together and spend the holidays.
There would be less financial stress because they are together sharing the cost of raising the child. The child will also have a happy family and raise his kid like he was raised. Also, the parents will teach him about drugs and drinking. Having both parents point of view of why is bad. Society are always discriminating of what you do, how you dress, who you go out with and so on. Seeing that the child is doing good with both parents together is a good role model for parents who are divorce.
It may increase marriages rates or decrease divorce by watching how other marriages succeed. They may also try to work things out for the better of their child and take the responsibility to raise him. It is also a benefit to the single mothers because it increases the ability for welfare to them. Meaning that other single parent have a greater chance of getting the welfare because parents are sticking together. Also, children’s won’t need to go to a foster home and be unhappy because they are with a family member.
However, they are single parents who say they could raise a child by their self. That they could talk and make a deal of who and when the child is staying with the mom or dad. They don’t really see that it hurts the child seeing both parents separate. Single parents also think that the child could get only his/her advice but it’s really not the same hearing from both parents opinion. Also, they say that they could work, pay the bills, give the child whatever they want but it’s really not true.
Every time they are not always going to do what they say and sometimes the child may get control by one parent but he need the sermon of both parents. In conclusion both parents should equally share the responsibility of raising their child. Children’s have a better positive outcome than those of single parents. They may also have a better family when they grow up than a child born in a single parent household. It would be less stress for both parents and a good role model for society. Children should not go through the disaster of having parents’ divorce.
