Topics for Smaller Papers

Definition/Classification Argument
Parents have total obligations to give to their child, a child has no obligations to their parents unless negotiated between the two. When raising a child with disabilities it can be different the parents still have all obligations of caring for the child but will the disabled child ever have a negotiation with their parents to have obligations of their own?

Cause / Effect Argument

Taking care of a child with disabilities can cause major stress on the entire family.

Rebuttal Argument

When a child is born with a disability the parent did not choose to live that lifestyle of taking care of a disabled child so they may choose not to do so.

Current state of the research –

The current status of my research is well. The topic I choose can go in many different directions. I have to be specific when looking for research but overall I have been successful finding source material.

Proposal +5

For my research essay I will be examining the unfairness of life. A child with disabilities  who requires so much care in he or she’s youth can’t pay back the debt to their parents when they get old and infirm and could really use her help. My argument will go into detail about how I can relate to this very situation of being a sibling of a disablied child and wondering what the future holds.
