Adultism refers to the oppression of young people by adults. The popular saying "children should be seen and not heard" is used as a way to remind a child of his or her place and reaffirm the adult's power in the relationship. The saying suggests that children's voices are not as important or as valid as an adult's and they should remain quiet. Children are often relegated to subordinate positions due to socially constructed beliefs about what they can or cannot accomplish or what they should or should not do; this in turn compromises youth's self-determination. This oppression is further highlighted when considering the intersection of age with race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, and sexual orientation. You will be asked to consider all of these when reviewing the Logan case and Parker case.
Post an analysis of the influence of adultism in the Logan case. Then, explain how gender, race, class, and privilege interact with adultism to influence the family's discourse related to Eboni's pregnancy as well as other family dynamics.

Parker Family Episode 3 Program Transcript
FEMALE SPEAKER: I want to take care of her. I really do. I mean, she's my mom, and she's not getting any younger. But I deserve my own life, my own place. And I'm always tired of feeling like I'm suffocating all the time. It's just– It's so confusing. I love her, you know?
FEMALE SPEAKER: I understand that you want a place of your own to live. You mentioned before that you and your mother argue a lot.
FEMALE SPEAKER: A lot? How about all the time? And all that stuff she hoards, it's just like, I'm drowning in it. It's like there's more room for her junk than there is for us. It just drives me crazy. Right to the hospital sometimes.
FEMALE SPEAKER: How many times have you been hospitalized?
FEMALE SPEAKER: Let's see. Three times in four years. I think I mentioned to you that I'm bipolar, and I'm lousy dealing with stress. Oh. Wait, um, there was another time that I was in the hospital. I tried to commit suicide. I guess I was pretty lousy at that too, otherwise I wouldn't be here.
FEMALE SPEAKER: What made you want to do it? I was a teenager. And when you're a teenager, you find a reason every day to try to kill yourself, right? I was– I was depressed.
I remember one night I went out with some of my friends. And, um, they were all looking up at the sky and talking about how pretty the stars were. And all I could think about was that that sky was nothing more than a black eye. It was lifeless, and it could care less about any of us.
When they finally let me go home from the hospital, my family– wow– what a trip they were. They didn't want to talk about what I had tried to do. That was off- limits. I tried to kill myself. And I they acted like nothing ever happened. I've never told anybody that before.
FEMALE SPEAKER: Are you seeing a psychiatrist now?
FEMALE SPEAKER: Um, I go to a clinic, and I see him once a month. I also go to drop-in centers for group sessions, mostly for my depression.
FEMALE SPEAKER: What about medications?
FEMALE SPEAKER: Hell, yeah. They're my lifesaver.
FEMALE SPEAKER: What are you taking?
