Class Conversation 5–Today’s Parents–Problems and Positives: Exploring Strengths and Challenges in 21st Century Parenting
As we have read and explored parenting in chapters 8 and 9, we have been presented with many topics and information about parenting today and the highs and lows of it all.
Part A: Considering the challenges addressed in chapters 8 & 9 in addition to reflecting upon your observations and life experience, what do you consider to be some of the greatest issues that parents face today? Present at least two.
Our book presents many of them and you are not limited to this; you may bring up any challenges that you see that you want to bring up in this discussion and do your best to make course connections to these insights.
Part B: Now on the flip-side, what do you see as the strengths among today’s parents and 21st-century child-rearing based on the chapter readings in addition to your own observations/experience? In short, what are today’s parents doing well regarding raising their children? Present at least two.
Once again the book does mention and addresses a few, but you are not limited to these alone and may share your views as well.
****Remember course application from the chapter readings is CRITICAL and needed when responding to these questions****
I do realize our text provides plenty of discussion regarding the difficulties, but they do note positive changes and trends taking place too! Do your best to give equal discussion to both parts because they both carry equal weight. For example: do not discuss 3 challenges and then only 1 strength.
Please note: I find most students discuss the challenges in greater length and with more examples and tend to be brief and more generic when it comes to the strengths…not sure why–haha!
