The division that exists in society about the validity of homosexuals’ claims that they can be stable parents can be witnessed in the many different laws designed to prevent adoption by this social group.

It is argued that television viewing and other print and, non- print media sources are the major contributors to this effect. This may however not be true as some argue that the information that people give concerning the movie industry is often contradicted the real fact about the movies that are performed by the movie experts across the globe (Sotirovic 125).
This statistic is alarming. It means large populations of children are dying from deaths that could be avoided. Perhaps, most controversial of all has been the proposal that the parents should be held responsible for obesity in their children, citing parental negligence.
