Everywhere across the Globe we see families . Almost every child till the age of 15-18 has parent(s) to love,care protect them .Most of the youths who are raised by loving and caring parents ,who pamper them , fulfill all their demands , later tend to get spoiled.There are multiple scenarios wherein we could compare and contradict the outcomes of the way a child is raised . However, the question which comes to my mind every now and then is about the children been raised with no families at all .Remember - By this i don't mean Orphans.I mean children who lost their parents , or were disowned by their families , or whose parents expired when s/he was just a kid and struggled to survive all by themselves. What do you think s/he turn out to become when an adult ... what could be the possible challenges s/he might face in the life ahead. They say - Live and Let Live , yet they even say Survival of the Fittest ! What could possible s/he feel when s/he sees other children/teenager/youths with their parents enjoying life ... being loved and cared.My thoughts have no boundaries... i would like to know the views across the Globe ... which would be nowhere better than MYLOT ! Your views please ... mylot !

Children,who grow with no family are selfish and smart because they used to fight against the real life every single day.Children,who has raised by family are not stupid but they can't live for example without their parents for a long,because they need somebody,who cares about them or who cooks for them.In my opinion "alone" children can easily survive,but maybe they aren't ready to have a family because of the fact they didn't have any.

I didn't mean people who have family are stupid. i have a family too and i feel we have a security and love of our family so our growing up and outlook towards people and society is different.

@ danny Everybody is selfish in today's world.Its just the case of how well we justify ourselves ! You happen to justify your statement towards the "alone" category in your own way , even if the rest agree to it or it , is not your concern. Yes, all of the children survive ! However, i think there's a huge difference between survival and just being alive . What you are talking about is "being alive". On the contrary i would like to know your views on how long do you think someone can just be "alive" ? Don't you think survival means preparing oneself for the challenges of life, the ways to live , to learn to love and be loved , etc. Yes, the "alone" may not be ready to have a family because they don't remember or know what a family is like . They tend to spend the rest of their life earning a living by yet maintaining a high self esteem , only because the freaking society looks at them with sympathy which they cannot pass. The society just talks and talks and talks ... but these "alone" believe in Stop Talking , Start Doing . Looking forward to hear from you , if you could justify your words.

In my opinion, a child who has no family, under your stated circumstances would grow up feeling a void in his life. He will try to fill it up in one way or another. It would be nice if a foster family will get him because it will serve as his support as he grows. If the foster family will be good, he will love them as truly his own.

Teenage children rarely get adopted here in my country and most children are in streets rather than foster care. Adopting is not considered a good thing because some people are still very narrow minded about these things.

It's important, that we should support these peoples, so they don't feel alone, and allways feel they have friends who care about them & make sure u r not alone especially at the time of occastions, so may it be a special one

Yeah you are totally right.Festivals are times when there is celebration is going all around and they must feel very alone at time like these.

I believe one of the toughest test in life is when you are living without a family...Family as we all know has been an integral part in the development of a person, and losing that driving force in such an early age will affect the children worst...In many of the cases, the children become wild and bad, not to generalize but it is the fact...

when one loses a family at an early age they tend to lose trust in everybody and if there is nobody else to care for him/her and he gets negative behavior from everybody then his mindset becomes like that everybody is their enemy.Family indeed is the strong foundation, so everybody deserves a family.

It is so sad to hear about kids who have to have to struggle through life so early! Certainly it would have a psychological effect on these kids as they mature. My guess is that it can affect these unfortunate individuals either way. They either grow up very early and develop wisdom and compassion beyond their years or they enter adulthood with issues that may lead to addictions and personality disorders etc. and will need professional help.

As long as one has good disposition in life, he can survive the ordeal of living alone. Yes, there's a lot of dangers and temptations and one can easily fall prey to many bad influences but if one is strong, with firm and good life disposition, he can rise above this obstacles. It's a matter of choice between good and evil, if you choose the wrong side,then most likely you will never achieve victory of t own conquest and struggle. Having clear vision of what you want your life to be is enough to be a motivation to pursue what is right. People are out there to help or destroy. Making good choice of the company you'll go also could make up what's lies for you in the future.
