Park Unit 4 Ecological Framework and Its Application to Family Discussion

In this unit, we will look at being a parent, parenting, children, and childrearing. The cost of parenting and various parenting styles will be examined.  This unit will also examine the ecological framework and its application to family.


  1. Articulate and illustrate parenting styles (CLO2)
  2. Apply the ecological framework to family  (CLO1)
  3. Apply any of the readings this week to your own life.  (CLO6)


After reading the articles assigned for the week in your Ferguson text, fully answer the questions asked on each article. Each unit, you are required to post to ALL discussion prompts but only one peer post per unit is required. You must post first before you will see other classmate’s postings. 

Topic 1: “Mothering from a distance: emotions, gender and intergenerational relations in Filipino transnational families”

What are your thoughts on transnational families and mothering from a distance? Would you do this for your family if in their position? How do the Filipino domestic workers deal with the pain/guilt? 

Topic 2: “The father as an idea”

How do mothers who use a sperm donor construct the idea of the father for their children?  Why is this important? What if anything would you do differently and why?

Topic 3: “Out of sorts: Adoption and (Un)Desirable Children”

What are your thoughts on the reading? Why are white babies in more demand than babies of color? Should there be a law that makes the prices of adoption in the US the same no matter the race/ethnicity of the child? Why or why not?

Topic 4: “Consumption as Care and Belonging: Economies of Dignity in Children’s Daily Lives”

Do you agree with the author’s conclusions? Why or why not?
