Family Expectation Essay

Family expectations, in general I think are helpful. The foundation of the child's future starts with the strict expectations of his/her family. The strict expectations of the family can also teach the child the importance of his/her family's expectation. Family expectations can also be a hindrance, that it might be against what the child/teen wants to really do and become, this is not the case.

As a child you would believe anything your parents (not to mention a stranger of the street) tell you. As a child you need guidance, without guidance you'd probably grow up with no goals, dreams or even morals. These points relate to how expectations from the family towards a young child will guide the child into a good future. If the child is constantly hassled to meet with the expectations of the family the child will soon believe the world revolves around these expectations and will change his/her lifestyle as he/she grows older. Obviously good expectations like good work at school and wash your hands before eating will guide the child towards a good future but bad or no expectations will have a negative affect on the Childs life.

Not many parents have any expectations for their kids when they're young. What they don't know is that if strict expectations are put upon the 'teen child' it will be harder but will take less time for them to realise the importance of the expectation they have to face. By the age of 15-16 they would be start enough to understand what their family's expectations toward them were all about. Games and Fun have decreased to an all time low when you hit year 11 and maybe then the teen will understand the importance of it and even though it might be hard, the teen will still have to work through it by him/herself to give themselves a better future.

Family expectations might be considered a hindrance towards the child, being against what the child really wants

When we are born, we are not born with a set of values and expectations, so we learn them from our parents or adults who raise us, primarily.  We learn not only through these adults teaching us, we learn by example and by watching/observing.  As we grow up and get to an age that we can understand what "values" are (and "expectations"), we can begin to internalize them.  However, we also can reject or test...

When we are born, we are not born with a set of values and expectations, so we learn them from our parents or adults who raise us, primarily.  We learn not only through these adults teaching us, we learn by example and by watching/observing.  As we grow up and get to an age that we can understand what "values" are (and "expectations"), we can begin to internalize them.  However, we also can reject or test those values and expectations as children and young adults for many reasons, from doing so simply to be difficult to doing so knowing that we have done wrong, but want to see what it is like anyway.  Since we spend the most time with our families, they are the primary adults who influence our values and expectations for ourselves.
