...extraordinary influence my mother has been on my life. She's the kind of person who has thoughtful discussions about which artist she would most want to have her portrait painted by (Sargent), the kind of mother who always has time for her four children, and the kind of community leader who has a seat on the board of every major project to assist Washington's impoverished citizens. Growing up with such a strong role model, I developed many of her enthusiasms. I not only came to love the excitement of learning simply for the sake of knowing something new, but I also came to understand the idea of giving back to the community in exchange for a new sense of life, love, and spirit. My mother's enthusiasm for learning is most apparent in travel. I was nine years old when my family visited Greece. Every night for three weeks before the trip, my older brother Peter and I sat with my mother on her bed reading Greek myths and taking notes on the Greek Gods. Despite the fact that we were traveling with fourteen-month-old twins, we managed to be at each ruin when the site opened at sunrise. I vividly remember standing in an empty ampitheatre pretending to be an ancient tragedian, picking out my favorite sculpture in the Acropolis museum, and inserting our family into modified tales of the battle at Troy. Eight years and half a dozen passport stamps later I have come to value what I have learned on these journeys about global history, politics and culture, as well as my family and......

Working vs Stay at Home Mothers

...  Stay  Home  Mothers     1     Research Paper Working vs. Stay Home Mothers Joseph Ochoa Com/172 September 18, 2012 Brenda Caine    WORKING  VS.  STAY  HOME  MOTHERS   2   Children have such an amazing connection with their mothers, it is usually the first word they learn and the name they scream when they are hurt. Working mothers have stormed into the business world at full force in the last 20 years. This has had an impact on the children today, although mothers who stay home have more one on one time with their kids. According to Youngberg, “One significant, reoccurring issue specifically related to a mother’s decision of whether to be active in the workforce or be a stay-at-home mother involves the cognitive effects such a decision might have on children” (2011). While Children get as much attention at daycare as they would at home, stay at home mothers have a bigger impact than working moms. Mothers who work and mothers who stay home have the same busy lifestyle. Mothers need to get groceries, get the kids to baseball practice and better have a husband who is splitting the responsibilities to help take off the pressure. Mothers who work start taking their children to daycare at the young age of six to eight weeks. Heidi Brennan said on the Dr. Phil show “Children do not do well with large separations at a time” (Stay-At-Home Moms Vs. Working Moms, 2012). Because of the job that mothers have, mothers are...

The Role of a Mother in a Doll's House and Mother Courage

...maternal figure through comparison of female characters in Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll House and Bertold Brecht’s Mother Courage and her Children. Henrik Ibsen’s Nora Helmer and Bertolt Brecht’s Mother Courage present two strongly defined female heroines whose actions not only adversely affect the other characters’ lives but also suggest a fundamental problem with their societies. Both playwrights establish the macroscopic view of society’s turmoil in the microscopic, individual characters of Nora and Mother Courage. Both characters have an indomitable magnetism that, on the one hand, allows them to control others but, on the other, cause them to make desperate choices that reflect a repressive society. In analyzing the figures of Nora in A Doll House and Anna Fierling in Mother Courage and Her Children, it is important to examine the ways in which they interact with their respective societies, specifically how well they play the roles defined for them. For each play, there exist social structures, as well as exigencies of a given period within those structures, which range from being burdensome to downright inimical to the process of being a good mother. In the case of Nora, the perspective is bleak: due to the oppressively, male-dominated society , not only is she in no position to be a provider or protector for her children, but due to the condescending, patronizing attitudes of her father and husband she has remained in a state of arrested development her......

...EXECUTIVE SUMMARY-Most of us consider child labor exploitative and therefore, socially unacceptable. The study of child labor is, however, important not only for social reasons but also for economic ones. The impact of child labor on the economy works through its debilitating effect on education which is important component of human capital. The participation of children in work in home and outside is often considered to be one of the important reasons for low school enrolment in Bangladesh. An important effect of child labor is on demographic development in a country. It is generally found that poor countries with high rates of population growth have higher incidence of child work. In this study, the actual child laborers in Bangladesh are 3.2 million (ILO, report/ BBS, 2006) which age is 5-17years. About 421000 are domestic workers. The children are bound to do hazardous toils because of poverty. More than 1.3 million children work in hazardous situation. The Bangladeshi children deprived every winding of social and international aspects such as in trafficking, industrial works, household labors, early marriage, biri factory, forcedly prostitution, begging, less wages, helping in the vehicle etc. though the government of Bangladesh has taken many initiatives to prevent child labor and violation of child rights. But the achievement is not satisfactory, in this connection much phenomena are concerned; poverty is one of them. So, government, NGOs and public should take proper......

Student's Mother Habits

...College mothers in the dual roles of student and parent: implications for their children's attitudes toward school.(Report) Article from: Merrill-Palmer Quarterly | January 1, 2009 | Ricco, Robert; Sabet, Sarah; Clough, Cassandra | Copyright inShare 2 The experiences of female college students who are raising children while pursuing higher education have received limited attention in the educational and psychological literature (Christopher, 2005; Colbry, 1995; Dyk, 1987; Gigliotti, 2001, 2004a, 2004b; Haleman, 2004; Home, 1998; Quimby & O'Brien, 2006; Ricco, McCollum, & Schuyten, 2003; Ricco and Rodriguez, 2006; Scott, Burns, & Cooney, 1996). The research that has been conducted with this population is primarily concerned with psychological stress resulting from conflicts among student, family, and work roles and with identifying the antecedents and moderators of such stress as well as the impact of role conflict on academic performance and overall adjustedness (Gigliotti, 2001, 2004a, 2004b; Home, 1998; Quimby & O'Brien, 2006). While research with college mothers has understandably focused on the negative consequences of their efforts to occupy multiple, conflicting social roles, the more positive implications of multiple roles for these mothers have not been consistently explored (Christopher, 2005; Dyk, 1987; Quimby & O'Brien, 2006). Mothers attending college are in a unique position as parents; they share with their school-age children the......

The Effects of Living in Low-Income Single Mother Families

...The Effects of Living in Low-Income Single Mother Families Student Liberty University Abstract This article serves as an in-depth analysis of lives of low-income single mothers and their children. The cycle that happens with single mothers, the absence of the biological fathers and the stress that is often brought upon low-income single mothers all have the ability to affect the social, emotional and the cognitive development of the child. This article will be useful to anyone wondering about some of the struggles of low-income single mother households and the adverse effect on the child. Empirical articles were used to support the research of this article. The article supports the notion that low-income single mothers are often in a great struggle to pull themselves out of poverty. More readily available resources for single mothers including on-the-job training and financial resources for single mothers to be able to go back to school would greatly help low-income single mothers as they try to successfully raise their families. Keywords: single mother, low-income families, poverty The Effects of Living in Low-Income Single Mother Families The number of single-mother families in the United States has continued to increase steadily in the past few years. With close to 25 percent (one-fourth) of the 75 million children that are under the age of 18 in the United States being raised by single-mothers, this specific demographic is clearly one that cannot be ignored......

Cymbeline as Mother

...Kin Kang Dr. Tredennick English 330 12/20/13 Cymbeline as Mother When reading through Shakespeare’s tragicomedy, Cymbeline, I tended to want to find the archetypal vices in the heros of the play. Among the most honorable characters: Posthumous, Imogen, Guiderius, and Arviragus, we find that only Posthumous seems to have the only recognizable character flaw in bargaining off his wife for gold. In almost all respects, the children of Cymbeline are perfect characters within the Elizabethan patriarchal ideal. The three of them have an incomplete parentage in the play, having an absent mother, and being displaced in the case of the boys. With the role of motherhood being so very important to child-development, the question becomes: how did these perfect characters get this way without the essential role of the mother? Of course in the heavily misogynistic society, the mother plays the part of enemy even in parenting, as the female body and character is something that must be conquered in order to successfully rear virtuous sons. In this play, this challenge is sidestepped by Cymbeline’s claim to motherhood. In Cymbeline, Shakespeare creates a familial fantasy within which the role of the mother is fully excised from the gender play of traditional Elizabethan parenthood, fostering purely masculine childrearing. Cymbeline takes on the role of the mother, embodying a purer space for child development that rids itself of the female body: the source of contamination to the ideal...

Socia and Emotional Well-Being of Unwed Mothers

...SOCIAL ADJUSTMENT AND EMOTIONAL WELL-BEING OF UNWED MOTHERS IN SELECTED TOWNS IN BATANGAS PROVINCE A Thesis Presented to The Faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences BATANGAS STATE UNIVERSITY JPLPC-Campus Malvar, Batangas In Partial Fulfillment Of the Requirements for the Degree Bachelor of Science in Psychology By: ANDREW T. CLAUD RENIER A. EVANGELISTA October 2014 CHAPTER I THE PROBLEM Single mothers have a dual responsibility in their households. Compared to two-parent households, lone parents have not only reduced money but also half the adult time resources available. Single mothers manage many responsibilities including financial provision, housekeeping, and parenting. In addition, they lack a supportive spouse to turn to for counsel, cooperation, and comfort. The stress in the mother’s life and the way she deals with it also impacts her child. Current research suggests that professional help is sought for mental health reasons by single-parent mothers two to three times more often. Of all problems in domestic relations with which the social worker deals, that of the family unsanctioned by Church or State, unrecognized by the community, is probably the most difficult. Although we speak usually of the “unmarried mother” nevertheless the situation involves all the elements of a family group—mother, father, and child. Each of these has certain rights, the parents have certain obligations, and the relationship of the members of the group to......

The Iimpact of Mother

...The Impact of Mother's Employment Research on the influence of income and mother's employment suggests that working is not a predictor of negative outcomes and working can have both positive and negative effects on student achievement. Regardless of whether they are single or married, mothers who work full-time often have less time to spend with their children, a condition that may lead to lower achievement and increases in behavior problems at school. For many single-parent families, however, children receive more benefits than harms from their mother's work. In addition to the income working brings into the family, African American children in elementary school actually do better in school when their mothers work outside of the home. The fact that children from low-income, single-parent families actually earn higher grades than children from two-parent homes with similar income suggests that single parents who work teach their children coping strategies that limit the impact of financial hardship, low parent involvement, and other risk factors. http://library.adoption.com/articles/single-parenting-and-childrens-academic-achievement.html Working mothers 'harm A-level chances' by LAURA CLARK, Children who are still too young for school when their mothers return to work may go on to get lower A-level results, research suggests.

...of blocks of family units. The stronger each block is, the stronger the structure of the society. Families are thus the building blocks upon which rests the fate of society. For the development of good families, a mother plays a vital role. Mothers have a lot of responsibilities, from the beginning of making a family until the time when her children are old enough to be independent and make their own families. However, life is not easy nowadays. Earning money is difficult that is why a lot of mothers chose to work. Unlike before where only men or fathers earn in a family, on this generation it is very common that mothers are also working in order for their own families to have a better future. In line with this, education can be of great help for mothers to get a better job. Because better job means bigger salary especially when the degree they got is very in demand nowadays or in different countries where the offer is nicer. Education also helps mothers to get a better position in the company which may give them benefits of earning enough money for the budget of the family. These women are strongly motivated by the desire not only for personal achievement but also to create an opportunity for a better future for their children. For them, with a valuable certificate or degree in hand, they will be highly equipped and have the credentials to earn a family-supporting wage and opens a lot of doors for many other career opportunities and advancements.

Society Begins at Home

...describe a typical day of mayhem through the eyes of a mother. Mothers who stay at home know that at times, their lives can be discombobulating. Despite the chaos, stay-at-home mothers get the tremendous responsibility of only having one chance of raising their children in such a way that makes a difference in their children’s lives and in society. Throughout history, society has looked upon the male as the breadwinner: the one expected to work and support the family. The mother has been viewed as the nurturer: the one to stay home and raise the children. During the 1960’s, women wanted more rights, power, and the ability to get higher paying jobs. Women were given this right so they expressed this new found freedom by going to work outside of the home. As women sought employment, their children were left to the care of babysitters and day care workers. Because society has redefined the role of a mother to be one who is an important element in the workforce, the loss of the mother in the home has led to the Fellhoelter 2 decline of the family unit, and thus, to society. This forfeiture has created a generation for whom social morals and values are not as important as they once were. Perhaps this is due to a working mother being absent from the home where she is unable to personally instill these ethical standards in her children, thus leaving her children to receive their value system from strangers. “Society truly does begin at home”, asserts Sibyl......
