Response to discussion post minimum 100 words
Respond to Another Student: Review at least 1 other student’s Key Assignment Outline and provide meaningful feedback. Refrain from general feedback, such as simply stating “good job.” Your feedback to other students is most helpful if you not only point out weak areas but also offer suggestions for improvement. The best feedback takes a three-stage approach to identify what was done well, weaknesses, and areas for improvement.
Student paper down below:
Society has been on the downward curve in parenting and role models since divorce rates have climbed.According to the American Physiological Association, 50% of married couple in the United States end in divorce (Marriage and Divorce, 2018). Prior to the 1960’s, divorce was not so prevalent.This has a sound impact on parenting and how the child views life.This compounded with both parents working, leaves the children with less supervision than decades previous to the 60’s.Poor parental role models are just one of many reasons juvenile delinquency is an issue nationwide.
Construct Alternative Solutions
Nature versus Nurture is one issue that comes to mind as to if the problem is in the genes or if it is from parenting or a social construct.Common sense and most believe social learning theory is the most probable.With that, we can demise having at least one parent home usually helps in the discipline of the child and the one final factor that really matters to a child, love.Finding a way to provide the child with love is just one of many probabilities to effectively help keep the behavior issues at bay.
If studies show that children mimic behavior, then it may also define positive characteristics.Providing a sound environment with positive role models is what the Center for Parenting Education suggests in the article “Being a Role Model” (Being a Role Model – The Promise and the Peril, 2018).
Getting the communities involved as many societies did in many years past would be one step in the right direction.In my people’s history, community was everything.I am speaking about Native American culture of course.American Indians before the introduction of Anglo Saxon cultures, all of the children were looked after by everyone in the village.I am not suggesting this, what I am suggesting, is a tax payer’s solution to child care.So many children are left to their own demise at home because of single family homes or both parents working.If more children always had a place to go, paid for by our taxes, then maybe this could be a step in the right direction for positive role models.
Compensation for city employees with additional Paid Time Off (PTO) for a percentage of the hours they volunteer to work with children in specific programs.Such as Big Brother or Big Sister Programs or Child recognition and positive outreach alternatives.
Criteria for Judging Success of Proposed Solutions
Lower delinquency rates would ultimately be the goal here.Compare delinquency rates quarterly or annually to determine rates at which the program decreases, stays the same, or increases juvenile issues.
Projected outcomes for alternative Solutions
The projected outcome would be a higher and better quality of childcare, under direction of the state or government.With set policy for positive relief for parents working or single parent homes.
Analyze Trade-Offs for Solutions
The tradeoff is obviously the tax payer dollars and resources will be subject to this program over another tax payer programs.Or higher taxes to supplement to monetary value of this program.Unless of course we take those tax dollars from other programs outside the continental United States and keep the monies in house rather than going to another country.
Choose Best Solutions
Best solution would be to find alternative tax monies and provide free child care programs specifically for parents under a certain income or single parent homes.
I recommending to raise taxes to provide childcare to families under specific criteria that have a higher probability of juvenile delinquency.This will not only provide the intended with a quality of care for the child, but also help the families in need from spending large amounts of money on what already is expensive childcare.This will also have a long-lasting effect on the community, but also create more jobs in the entire nation.Tax dollars is the bigger issue here for the program to be created, yet, it only takes the right approval in our government to swap already spent tax dollars, from outside the country, to inside.
The overall impact of this type of program could be instrumental in changing the dynamic of the way children are raised in the United States.
