Family Dilemma and the Principle of Double Effect
Family conflicts and dilemmas can take many forms, occurring under different
circumstances in modern life. Some of these circumstances include money, family businesses,
sibling rivalry, divorce arguments, or even emotional damage. However, in most situations,
money remains one of the significant contributing aspects in family dilemmas. When growing
up, most children will experience first-hand problems concerning money, especially when their
parents have to make decisions that affect family operations. In most cases, families are torn in
between having money to care for their children and at the same time having to take care of their
aging parents. In such scenarios, children may fail to understand why their parents will push for
sacrificing some activities for the sake of others. I felt that I have the right of provision, and my
parent must ensure everything is available. However, when they had to factor in aging parents, I
sometimes felt cheated and would remain devasted and emotional.
However, in what I mostly perceived to be an evil act, it turns out that all these activities
were done in good faith and concerning the underlying family financial conditions. Our parents
had to sacrifice what they had to remain morally at the center of helping everyone grow. Our
aging grandparents had to depend on our parents for survival, while we had to rely on our parents
to at least have a glimpse of the basic needs. To our parents, the intention was to ensure a good
effect while mitigating the harmful effects to either party. As a young member of the family, I
had no significant role in decision-making, and I remained more so as a bystander without
nothing much that I could do. I believe we had to apply the principle of double-effect to
understand that what was happening was barely misinterpretation on my part. By focusing on the
aging parents, our parents did not intend any financial harm to our wellbeing.
As much as the dilemma was dire, I would have followed the same steps undertaken by
our parents in ensuring every possible good is felt towards everyone irrespective of the
magnitude that it would be noticed. Ideally, I would work to ensure minimal harm either
financially, emotionally, or physically towards the people around me.
