SOC 320 Week 6 Discussions

SOC 320 Topic 6 DQ 1

If you have children, think back to the time before you had children. If you do not have children, look forward to the time when you may want to decide to have children or not to have children.

If you have children already, was that a conscious choice or was it just assumed that you would have children? If it was a choice, how did your reasons for wanting children compare with the reasons discussed in Chapter 12 of the Lauer & Lauer text? If it was not a thought-out choice, do some of the reasons discussed in the text help explain why you and your spouse did not “choose” to have the children you have? Explain.

If you do not have children, do you hope to have some at some later time or will you be voluntarily childless? Explain your thinking and compare it to the reasons described in the text in either the “Why People Want to Have Children” section or “The Child-Free Option” section.

SOC 320 Topic 6 DQ 2

In your own words, briefly describe each of the three styles of parenting discussed in Chapter 12 of the text. Then analyze the likely effect of each style of parenting on the lives of the children. Which of these three styles comes closest to the style used by your parents in raising you? Did the predicted effect of that style occur in your case? In retrospect, what are your thoughts about this style of parenting? Are you likely to use it if and when you are a parent? Or, if you are already a parent, are you using this style or did you use this style when your children were younger?
