Module 8 Assignment 1: Bullet point Assignment
This assignment requires you to develop a 2 pager that list in a minimum of five to six bullet points
for each topic with subtopics as well and bullet points to follow answering in the main ideas and
synthesizing the key points from the literature review. The purpose of this assignment is to allow you
the opportunity to practice presenting your key findings so they need to be listed in bullet form for
each of the six points so that one will have the key bullets listed that relate to the final
You must select the most relevant material and provide the information in a concise manner. The
presentation demonstrates critical thinking, careful word choice, and optimal organization of
information to convey the desired content and achieve the best impact on the audience.
Organize the the two pager where you list at least five bullet points for each topic under the

Background of the Problem
(under this tpoic you definitley should list subtopics too and bullet points) look at previous work
completed to get the specifics as it relates to drug use and children success
Key Findings from the Literature
Relevance of Literature Findings to Proposed Topic
Gaps in Research and Recommendations for Future Research
Make sure you provide in-text citations for your literature findings and a final References under
this information will be transposed into powerpoint by me
Please make sure you review the elements of the grading criteria and associated points carefully and
make sure your assignment has addressed all the elements and in enough detail to merit full points.

Research Topic and Preliminary Questions
Impact of Parent-Child Relationship on Child Development
What are the potential relationships between the success rate or education level of a child and
growing up in a household with parents on drugs?
Potential relational questions to help you focus your topic and enhance your preliminary keyword
1. What is the relationship between drug habits of parents and the life quality of their children?
2. How does the behavior of parents affect the potential of a child in succeeding through life?
3. Does the education of a child depend on the relationship between the child and the parent?
Educational Significance of the Topic: This study is important as a tool for identifying the effect of
parent drug use on the development and success of children. It is my hope that the results will lead
to a better understanding of the relationships and can be used extensively in the field of counseling
for both parents and children.
Background of the Study: The adolescent stage of youth development is a critical stage of development.
Because youths adopt life decisions and characters from the relationships they have with their parents
and peers. Most teenagers whose parents have a drug habit end up dropping out of school and leading
unsuccessful lives. The need for this study is to identify the impact of drug habits from parents on
the quality of life of their children.
Reason for Interest in this Topic: Background of the Study: The adolescent stage of youth development
is a critical stage of development. At this stage, youths adopt major life decisions and characters
from the relationships they have with their parents and peers. Most teenagers whose parents have a
drug habit end up terminating their education and leading unsuccessful lives. The need for this study
is to identify the impact of drug habits from parents on the quality of children’s lives.
Reason for Interest in this Topic: The reason for selecting this topic for study is that I grew up in
a family with parents who were drug addicts. Notably, my mother was an addict of cocaine and this
affected me heavily. Despite my terrible upbringing, I managed to continue with my education. However,
most of my friends with similar family backgrounds were unlucky. They ended up being school dropouts
and leading extremely miserable lives around the same neighborhood. Their parents seemed to care less
about their progress in life. However, I observed that children from families with stable parents
rarely terminated their education. Most of them led very successful lives as their parents motivated
them to complete their education.
Whereas this research suggest that drug use among parents affects the education level and success rate
of children, my focus will be to establish the validity of this statement on an international level.
Special consideration will be on African American families due to prevalence of drug abuse around
their neighborhood to enable the research to be manageable. Data collection will also be limited to
recognized world organizations.
