I want the writer Dr.Joseph who did the order number 00019523 to do this order for me. I will upload the instructions of this order. I will also upload the instructor\'s feedback of the 10th Monday assignment. You need to read it since she needs me to consider her comment in the research paper. I have requested the number of sources to be 8 sources. I am not sure if she wants them to be in separate page or before each article. i think if you read the instruction, you will know that. below is the link of WKU database http://wku(dot)edu/library/ source..
Article 1: Kurdek, L. (2005, December 28). Calls made to strengthen state energy policies. Journal of Family Issues, pp. 1A, 2A.
“It is my opinion (and I say this as a specialist in child advocacy with 20+ years' experience) that, generally, kids raised with both a mother and a father, living together under one roof, tend to fare better as adults. Mothers and fathers naturally bring different abilities and gifts to the table when it comes to child rearing, and to have both parents in the picture allows for greater stability. Children raised by one parent tend to feel pressure to be both the child and to take on a sort of pseudo-spouse/pseudo-parent; that is to say, the children raised by single parents often have to take on much greater responsibilities at home, at an early age, when compared to their peers who are being raised by both parents. They tend to feel an obligation to emotionally support their single parent, which can be a heavy burden, especially as the child grows older and desires to become more independent and just do "kid" or "teenage" things. Another aspect of that is that single parents who work may often have to leave their children at home alone or under the supervision of another adult; or, in the case of single parents with multiple children, the older sibling(s) may be responsible for watching the younger one(s) when the parent is at work.

A higher-stress home lowers self-esteem in children, which can result in negative or unpleasant behavior as noted in studies presented by the Journal of Psychology in 2010. This behavior was shown to be prevalent when comparing 159 spouses and ex-spouses with their 12-year-old children”.
Article 3: Aurora, J., Kathleen, P., and Todd, F. (2010). Single Parenting and Child Behavior Problems in Kindergarten: Race and Social Problems. Vol.2 (1), pp.50-58 [Peer Reviewed Journal]
“Children raised by single mothers are twice as likely to misbehave as those born into traditional two-parent families, according to research. Some 12 per cent of children brought up by one parent displayed series behavioral problems by the age of seven, it was disclosed, compared with just six per cent of youngsters raised by both natural parents. The disclosure is made as part of a major study of around 14,000 children born in Britain between 2000 and 2002. It found that family make-up, parental qualifications and household income had a major effect on children’s b...
