    • I think you might want to add questions that relate more to having a “broken” house, for example how are your relationships with others (like do you trust easily or relate well to people of the opposite sex of your primary parent).

    • I agree with Katelyn. Also you may want to take into account the fact that people may not notice their aggressive behaviors or see that what people may not have diagnosed their depression. Other than that this is a very interesting subject to look into .

    • I think this is a great topic to open up more about how the mood in a home can make or break how people act and how they grow

    • Broken families can really affect a child negatively. When there’s a “missing link” in a family it can cause depression and aggression in a child. For example, where there’s a missing father figure, there’s no fatherhood and thus a missing part in a child development.

    • I also agree with Katelyn, you need to ask more specific questions about “broken” households. Maybe ask questions about trust, marriage, if they think having separated parents have affected them, how they think they have been affected,etc. I know you mentioned you didn’t want it to be to personal, but if you don’t ask any personal questions you wont have good support for the results you get.

    • Asha, there are definitely many different types of “broken” homes. I also believe that many homes that people think to be broken might actually be a great home. Sure, it’s not the “traditional” home we all think of. But homes can still bring love and kindness to a child even if it’s not the typical home. On the flip-side, yes a lot of children are neglected and aren’t loved and raised how they should be. This goes on to affect their behavior, and your behavior contributes to your personality. Yes, you are shaped by the people you spend time around. Kids pick up their parents behaviors and opinions whether they agree with them or not. I think more research needs to be done in this field to see how different homes change kids perspectives or behaviors. This is a very interesting topic.

      • I completely agree, thank you for your insight! I’ve only scratched the surface of researching and writing a research paper is frustrating, period. Although I was brought up into a broken home, I haven’t experienced some of the other feelings others may be feeling. I’m grateful for how I’ve grown up, and when I picked this topic I wanted to understand what other people were experiencing and find out if there was a way these feelings could be prevented.
        Again, thanks for your comment!

    • This sounds really interesting! It would be cool to see how each type of broken home is linked to development in children, or to see if it has any links to childhood mental illness. A lit of childhood psychologists have studied the effects of a broken home on a developing adolescent. Some of those articles might be a little more helpful. Good luck, and good work!

    • I like how you acknowledge the many different types of broken homes. I think your idea to compare and contrast the different types could end up to be a really interesting essay. I think what you brought up about personality and behavior is interesting and definitely something that you could incorporate into your paper and make it really great. Good luck!

    • I agree that within the issue of broken homes and their effect on child development there are many different topics and sub divisions. However by including all of these layers in your essay you can have a deeper explanation of the entire concept.
      To add more scientific evidence and categorize your research you can include the neurological explanation of child development. PBS The Brain: What Makes Me? is a video that can help you explain that, as it talks about why Romanian orphans are growing up to have mental disabilities.
      Regardless with all of your ideas the end result will have great depth.

    • Hey Asha,

      I think you’re topic is very interesting. Psychology has always intrigued me from the beginning. Your research has caught my attention because I feel a kids childhood and upbringing has a huge impact on their personality and behavior. Freud’s theories are very interesting and very odd at the same time. In my opinion, the oedipus complex is the weirdest one of his theories. I look forward to reading your essay and seeing how it turns out.

    • Dear Asha Huff and Taylor Quillinan,

      I agree with your opinion on Euthanasia, because it is a topic that is not discussed enough and people need to start talking about it more. Also many people have lives which they are suffering through they should not have to endure so much pain if they don’t have to.

      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is “Is good keeping someone alive for the sake of living, or, is good ending suffering at the cost of one’s life?” I think this is important to the idea because one should not have to live in pain and suffer until they die.

      Another sentence that I caught my eye was: “No one wants to see any other living thing suffer. Quality of life is valuable.” This stood out for me because not only will someone suffering affect the person it will also affect the people around them and their take on life.

      Your post reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I had to go through seeing someone die when I was very young and that person went through lots of medical treatment which everyone knew was not going to make this person better. This medical treatment made the persons last days worse then they could have been. This person should have had the option go ending their life without causing so much grief for family members.

      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because this is a topic that I think should be pressed on and also it seems like your ideas are very valid.

    • I really like how you were willing to talk about a topic most people put off to the side. This is a very important topic especially when it comes to people who are living as a veritable or are in such severe pain that they no longer want to live. I appreciate that you were willing to take a stance on the sensitive topic and I hope to see more from you.

    • Asha,

      I enjoyed reading your post on the cost of college because it is a topic I care about as well. It was interesting to hear that financial aid may be increasing the cost. I wonder that would be and why colleges still give it out. I agree that getting an education is important and people who go to college often have a lot of debt. I keep thinking about what a solution for this problem might be. Do you have any ideas about how this could be fixed in our country? Great post!

    • Asha, I too researched the rising costs of college tuition. It is becoming ridiculous to expect students to be able to afford these increasing prices in order to receive the education that they are seeking. Every student, if they are interested in furthering their education past high school, should be able to pursue it. Unfortunately, that is not the way things are set-up in our current society. I believe that legislation needs to be implemented in some form or another in order to fix this problem.

    • Asha,
      I completely agree with your point that it is nearly impossible to get a well-paying job without getting a college education, and that is becoming increasingly difficult. If students cannot afford to go to college as a result of the ridiculous tuition and room and board fees, then they will be unable to get a job that can support them financially. I also agree that the mass amount of student loan debts are a significant problem to our generation. What do you think is the best course of action for our country to resolve this problem? Great job!
