43). In The Odyssey, Jocasta demonstrates loyalty to her family by urging Odysseus to give up his pursuit for the truth. She literally begs him to stop quarrelling with Creon but he refuses to listen to her. He becomes obsessed to Jocasta's demise. hen he tells his wife, "I will not listen; the truth must be made known" (Sophocles Oedipus 825), she knows that she has lost her husband. The additional cost for Jocasta will be her marriage and, finally, her life. From these situations, we learn that duty is not something that can be had for free. Even in ancient times, individuals were confronted with choices to make for or against something they believed in. These choices involve some sort of sacrifice and it does not matter when these kinds of situations occur - sacrifice is a part of life and, more importantly, a part of human character.

As you can see I have carried many of their beliefs with me. As society has adopted more liberal viewpoints so too have I in raising my own children. It will be interesting to see what my children take from their experiences as they grow older and raise their own children.
As you know I value your insight and friendship. Ours is a relationship founded on trust, love and understanding. These are among what I consider important values in any relationship, whether with a parent, friends, sibling or partner. When I was a young man, my parents commanded discipline and order. They also taught me that it is important to respect others manners. Unfortunately I often felt I was not encouraged to ask questions and instead felt it was my duty to obey my parents without question or face disciplinary action as a result of my disrespect. This….
Family Values in Nursing
There is much credence to the idea that families work together in promoting either bad or good values as it relates to eating habits, general health habits and general health practices. Indeed, a family works as a system, good or bad, to perpetuate good things or bad things over the course of its functioning and existence. Much the same thing happens with nursing as a group of nurses often functions in much the same way as a family. The author of this report will offer theories that add to the body of knowledge being alluded to above and there will be references provided supporting the point. Whether one is speaking of a group of nurses or an actual family, both good and bad habits can manifest and this can lead to success or problems as time drags on.
While genetics and predispositions in general have a demonstrable effect….

The author of this report is to answer several questions about counseling, family systems and overall development. First off, the linkage and relationship between family systems and healthy development will be explored. What defines a healthy family system will be explained. The determining factors of a healthy family system will be listed off. The effects of an unhealthy family system or development structure will be covered. Lastly, there will be details of family systems and how they affect physical, emotional, spiritual, and social development. While some people with borderline or even dysfunctional family systems find a way to live a fruitful and fulfilling life, the outcomes for people from bad family systems usually substandard to abysmal on some level or another.

I think that I have chosen my own values for the most part, and rejected some of my family's that I feel are old-fashioned or not what I want for my life. For example, I chose a different political than most of my family. I didn't do it to be different, I did it because the party best represented me and my feelings. I don't have to do or enjoy everything my parents and family do, and I think that makes me an individual rather than a "clone." Another thing, I don't have the same "male" values as my dad. He's more machismo and into the male-female division of labor, but not as bad as my grandfather. I don't feel that way, and when I get married, I want us to be a team, rather than follow traditional male-female roles. I will raise my children as Catholics, but I do….
The author of this report has been asked to review one of the recent Democrat or Republican debates in March 2016 and then compare/contrast what was covered in that debate with the words of author George Lakoff. In particular, there is to be a comparison about the rhetoric and the function of the mind when it comes to family values and how people define that term internally and externally. To be sure, the Democrat and Republican party both espouse family values but they do so in ways that are often diametrically opposed. hile some may dismiss Lakoff or the words of politicians when it comes to the way the mind works when it comes to the subject, that would be a mistake because it absolutely has an effect on how people behave and react in terms of their political feelings and societal behaviors.
Lakoff makes a number of good points….

but, just owning a house didn't make a man's house a home, there was the definite need for a woman -- and if she couldn't be a wife, then she would be a sister or daughter (123). For women, the home was a place of work, for it was where they put in their long hard hours while the men were away working. The home was her reason for being really. If she were out shopping, it was for the home (124); for the woman, the home was always where her heart and duty was.

Tragedy manifests itself in many different ways. In the wake of the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001, America has experienced change in almost every aspect of life. One aspect of the American experience that has been heavily influenced by the attacks is attitudes toward family and friends. Seen through the prism of September 11, family and friends are important and should not be taken for granted.
Many Americans have redefined their values as a result of the attacks, placing family and friends high on the scale of priority. In a report conducted by The Infinite Mind, "nearly one in four Americans report feeling more depressed or anxious today than at other times in their life" (APA). More than half say their anxiety can be directly associated with the September 11 attacks. As a result of anxiety and as a means of coping, more than three-fourths of American surveyed "agree….

With the technology available in today's economy, it is probable that education could go back to the days when students received more individualized instruction. There is no refuting that technology will continue to alter education (Cornell, 2007).
Socialization is the development of a sense of being self connected to a larger social world by way of learning and internalizing the values, beliefs, and norms of one's culture. During socialization people learn to carry out certain roles as citizens, friends, lovers and workers. In the course of internalization our culture becomes second nature. People learn to behave in socially suitable and adequate ways. Some social institutions have precise roles in socializing the young and others have less deliberate but still powerful roles in the process. The mass media is a very influential socializing force. Media affects how people learn about the world and interact with each another. People often base most….

Family Social Policy
hat are the different ideological approaches to family social policy…how are they different?
Canada has traditionally taken the position that the responsibility for keeping a family intact is a private issue, not a public / governmental issue, according to Module 9. In terms of the ideological approach to families, the Module 9 explains four strategies.
Familialism is the approach taken in Canada for heterosexual family values; this approach supports women staying home to raise children and men getting jobs outside the home. Any struggles the family may have (money, marriage difficulties) are to be kept within the family.
Liberal Feminism differs from Familialism in that men and women have an equal basis for respect, both in the workplace and at home, but especially in the workplace. This ideology does not suggest that women should be raising children, staying home, and being homemakers. That typical role for a woman is minimized based….
To batter understand the mechanisms of decision making and purchase behavior within an adoptive family take the case of a nuclear family, formed from a 48 years old mother, a 51 years old father and an adopted 15 years old son. The mother is a clinical psychologist and the father is currently an out of work electrician. In this particular case:
big ticket purchases are generally decided by the mother, since she is the sole provider of the family; the father is charged with the family vacations food and toiletries are purchased on individual preference basically because the mother does not have enough time to cook group decisions are made in regard to the places where to dine out or electronic appliances to be purchased for the home the child's power of influence is revealed by his capability to research certain products and provide his mother with the required information to….

Once the children are of age, the parents' duty to take care of them reduces as the child takes charge to start a new life somewhere else. The parent usually has saved enough money through life insurance scheme and retirement savings to cater for himself after retirement. hen the child is grown, there is no dependence between the parents and children. Traits like hard work and honesty are encouraged towards children to ensure their survival in different societies when he grows up. In some cases when the parent is too weak and old to look after himself, he is taken to a home for the elderly since none of his children is available to take care of him (Stewart et al. 580).
The other model of family model is the model of psychological or emotional interdependence. In this model, the children are of less material help to the family. Parenting,….

If the child is punished for small infractions of the rules and other children are not, this makes him feel that life is unfair, and makes him act in the ways that he is expected to act. Formal labeling is manifest when teachers treat students labeled as gifted as brighter, which motivates the children to perform better on tests, or when students labeled as 'special education' or 'ESL' are assumed to be capable of less than other children. If less is expected of them, they will naturally perform at a lower standard.
Q5. Identify some of the factors that could lead to inept parenting in single parent family households.
Even the best single parent faces considerable challenges. Single parent households tend to be less affluent economically, which automatically presents a difficulty in terms of ensuring that children have safe and healthy environments in which to live. Single parents may not….
