An ideal answer will include:
1) Role strain refers to conflicts that someone feels within a role. Parents can experience role strain because of several factors.
2) Unrealistic role expectations: Parents expect and are expected to succeed with every child and may feel guilty if they "fail." The way children turn out is often the only measure culture uses to assess whether men and women are "good" parents.
3) Decreased authority: Parents may feel that they have less authority in raising kids than did parents in the past.
4) High parenting standards: In contrast to previous generations, parents are now expected to live up to high standards such as being informed about the latest medical technologies, watching their children closely for early signs of physical or mental abnormalities, and consulting specialists immediately if they detect learning problems.
