Transcript of Single Parent vs. Two parent family economic structure

Findings suggest that children who have a two parent family do better in school. How do the economic
factors of a two parent family
differ with that of a single parent
family in terms of success? The Family System theory proposes that whatever happens to any family member has an impact on everyone else in the family. The Product EDUCATION Are there any impediments that may distract the child from furthering his/her education?
How many siblings do they have?
Are both parents prominent figures in their lives?
What are their living situations like?
Do they have have access to basic needs needed to survive? No real solution can be made. We cannot keep people from being imperfect! Solution? Single Mothers: Findings suggest that
higher percentages of single mothers are
less established. Many have to account
for child support, alimony and
government assistance to name a few.. Also lower percentages of single mothers are reported to have finished college. WHAT HAPPENS WHEN TWO INDIVIDUALS DECIDE TO BREAK BONDS AFTER HAVING HAD CHILDREN? Single Parent Children Two Parent Children Single Fathers: Income distribution,
ability to garner higher education and
higher status in society seems to be more
prominent for single fathers. Since single parenthood skyrocketed in the last few decades, children have had to be witnesses to these types of confusing and saddening circumstances. Although children with a structured mom and dad dynamic prove to have better chances of "success", they still face many impediments. HOW DOES THAT AFFECT THEIR CHILDREN'S WELL- BEING AND THE NATIONS FOR THAT MATTER? Indicators that usually play a role in the success of a single parent upbringing with that of a two parent one: Gender of parent
Parental employment
Financial need
Family related or introspective transitions
Number of family members
Weaknesses/strengths of the child It is important to remember that not every situation yields the same results, leaving it up to the strength and determination of both the parent and the child to determine their success. Average Annual Income: $44,634 Average Annual Income: $23,188 Reportedly, 24% of the 75 million children underage live in single mother homes. From that same population, seven in ten are living with a single mother with low income. Single parenthood is the greatest cause of American children living below the poverty line. In the U.S. about 10% of children raised in a two parent family live below the poverty line. Approximately 66% of children from single-parent upbringings live below the poverty line. In addition nearly 50% of adults who have lived on welfare started after becoming a single parent. However, we could ensure that single parents have access to education, job training, quality child care and equal wages to ensure children's successful transition into adulthood. Ultimately, it should be comprehensible that statistics and theories are merely that. They have no definite say over the structure of a society, especially when every human being has differing journeys to embark on. Paulin, Geoffrey & Yoon Lee, writers of "Expenditures of Single Parents: How Does Gender Fit In?" explain that for the most part, expenditure patterns are the same for both genders. In average, single parent regardless of gender, receive an average annual income of $24,530. Families headed by a married couple, reported a cumulative income of $59,653
