Transcript

  • 1. CAN A NON-BIOLOGICAL PARENT LOVE AND ByADEQUATELY CARE FOR Jaime Sandberg A CHILD THAT IS NOT For ENG-122-509 BIOLOGICALLY CONNECTED TO THEM? 1
  • 2. ANYONE CAN BE A BIOLOGICAL PARENT! The comparison that non-biological parents don’t have that “special” connection with their children is ignorant! 2
  • 3. MY OPINIONI believe that a majority of parents that donot have a biological connection to a child can show love and support to that child equally 3
  • 4. MY VIEWS ON STEP-PARENTS12/7/2011 4
  • 5. MY VIEWS ON STEP-PARENTSI have seen many step-parents labeled as inadequate in their parenting skills Many because the child is struggling to accept them My husband and his family have shown me that a step-parent and step-family can take in children as their own 5
  • 6. MY VIEWS ON ADOPTIVE PARENTS12/7/2011 6
  • 7. MY VIEWS ON ADOPTIVE PARENTSI have seen many adoptive parents struggle through the adoption process only to be labeled not as adequate as a biological parent The stereotype that they cannot love their children because they do not have a biological connection is unfair and unfounded 7
  • 8. MY ARGUMENT Arguing FOR the non-biological parentsand AGAINST the judgment that they are not capable of caring for children at an equal emotional level as a biological parent is. 8
  • 9. OBSTACLESSTEP-PARENTS FACE 9
  • 10. OBSTACLES STEP-PARENTS FACE Could it possibly be that the biological parent is keeping the stereotype of a step -parent alive?  Subconsciously the biological parent could be signaling their tensions to the children, which can cause a ripple effect in the relationship with the step-parent Maybe a close relative of the biological parent is swaying the child’s or the biological parent, themselves opinion of the step-parent’s parenting skills Maybe the other biological parent is swaying the image the children have of the step -parent 10
  • 11. OBSTACLES ADOPTIVEPARENTS FACE 11
  • 12. OBSTACLES ADOPTIVE PARENTS FACE Fear that the birth parent could come back into the picture and take the child back  This can cause a disconnect with the child for fear of loving them and losing them Fear that the child will ask to meet the parent someday and end up liking them more  This also can cause a disconnect with the child Emptiness felt because of the inability to have a child biologically  This can cause resentment of the child  This can also cause a disconnect with the child of they don’t meet the parents standards (which would be sloughed off as “If you were my biological child”) 12
