One-parent vs. Two-parent households
Transcript of One-parent vs. Two-parent households
parent and child in both types of households The relationship between parent and child differ depending on the household. When living in a two-parent household, there tends to be a balance between the child’s relationships with each parent. If there is ongoing conflict between the parents, the child tends to not have a favorite parent because of feeling guilty about choosing one parent over the other. In this kind of situation it would be healthier for the child to live in a one parent household, and then the child would have a stronger relationship with the parent that they have a permanent residence with.(Amato Soblewski) Did You Know!? •In 1940 70% of households were two-parent.
•In 1999 62% of households were two-parent.
• In the U.S. today 30% of households are single parent.
•Nearly 60% of single parent households are a result of divorce.
•28% of single parent households live below the poverty line.
•Children of two-parent households are 30%-70% are more likely to be abused by parents.
•Children who are in the presence of domestic violence or a high conflict marriage are more likely to have development and psychological problems(Valimohammdadi)(Lee 505) When living in a two-parent household it shows that the child does better in education and adjusting. As well as having two emotional supports instead or just one. Not only does the child get a double emotional support, but also a better economical support. This could be essential for the child because it could give the child a more successful and bright future (Jaffee, Moffitt, Caspi, Taylor) Conclusion: In conclusion living in a two parent household is a better for a child than a single-parent household. Then again there are many different things that could affect how a child is raised. Not all two-parent households are right on the spot. It all depends on the jobs the parents have, the environment, and the marriage. Scientifically a two-parent household is better but in some ways a single-parent household might be better. It all depends on who the parent is and how they decide to raise their child.
