Zee And Munge Analysis

Good Essays
Initially, Zee and Munitz’s seem to agree on what a parent’s obligation is. Dr. Munitz agrees until it was proposed that a parent’s obligation is to help their children realize what their “super-best people they can be” (175). Overall, Munitz and Zee disagree on the means of how to help children achieve their best potential. Zee believes children will show “mastery and high achievement” (177) if shown rewards and discipline. If parents show that their children are “not living up to the standards” (176) asked of them, they must be shown disapproval in order for the child to learn how to behave properly. This ideology is used in Zee’s approach because she believes parents know best and that children do not “have the experience or knowledge to …show more content…
Munitz highly disagrees. Munitz describes Zee’s style of parenting as “not interested in raising a person at all, but rather an organ grinder’s little performing monkey” (177). He categorizes this parenting style as a “warrior mother,” that is a parent who is more invested in creating a high achieving offspring for their own interest and not the child’s self interest. By showing approval and disapproval of child’s actions, Munitz believes the children can develop dependency on such cues and can be manipulated by others throughout their lives. Munitz believes in a parenting style that is more “hands off” where they represent a source of exposure for their children but not offer much …show more content…
However, they both highly disagree on how the child’s highest potential is reached. Zee takes an optimistic view that allows parents to shelter, teach and guide their children to achieve their highest potential. Conversely, Dr. Munitz views Zee’s guided parenting as a way parents can “vicariously living through” their children. Furthermore, Munitz believes Zee’s empowerment of children at a young age will raise them to become “success junkies for life” (180). It’s evident that Munitz supports a natural child upbringing that allows the children to grow and succeed at their own pace and at their own interest. That notion is quite the opposite of Zee’s belief that every successful individual must be shown direction to find opportunities that would not be offered

    In both the excerpts from Karen van der Zee 's novel "A Secret Sorrow" and in Gail Godwin 's short story "A Sorrowful Woman," the plots center on ideas of marriage and family.
