I love this website, and a small handful of people do too. As a new comer to the website, I began pouring economic and social beliefs into this society as a purpose to make a change. Although this change will not be big, it will mean something to the young and fresh minds reading this on their phones and laptops. I always have been convinced by my teacher's actions that it was basically a site to post assignments and projects. And as far as I am disappointed, this site is nothing but that.
Parents do not create our identity. Sure, they have an influence on who we’re in the process of becoming, but they do not create the qualities, beliefs or distinguished rare traits that we posses. Our identity is found in Christ. 1 John 3:1-2 says this,
These days, many children hold online relationships which could possibly lead to risky situations. One of the riskiest situations is sexting. Sending explicit photos to others could have many consequences such as the reveal to other individuals. The next thought when thinking of the risk of sending these photos is authority: usually the authority in this case are the parents of the individual being put into these situations. Should they be involved with their children’s online relationships?
I believe that parents should respect their kids as kids should respect their parents. If you don't give respect, don't expect to respected. The same thing goes for everyone. I learned this from my father.
People wonder if parents love their children equally or if they do have a favorite. This is a common discussion with parents on how they treat each child. No matter what parents say or do, they still treat the older child vs the younger child in a variety of different ways. With the older child they seem to be more overbearing and overprotective. They have more discipline and higher expectations for the older child than the younger child. With the younger child they become more lenient and less disciplinary. Parents have higher demands for the first born.
Now that I've made a map about Living Up The Street by Gary Soto I am noticing that I had a lot of fun places ,that are across where they live at but I think these places are working places because they had to get up every morning to do work and chores.
The issues that keep coming up are that they are terrible kids and they have no home training so they don't listen to they parents and they bully other people around the street. It says on page two that they throw rocks at cars and sodas at cars.
"Practice makes perfect" is a commonly-used term when training athletes, but to what extent is it true? Everyone wants to be the best they can be, but without a break it can cause overwhelming stress and loss of desire. After researching athletic burnout, I found an article originally published by the American Running & Fitness Association stating that “although repetition is important, it may induce harm.” (Avoiding burnout in adolescent athletes.)
Learning to Swim is a memoir about the Singleton family who feel that they have a lot to deal with. Paul’s dad teaches him how to swim as his mom watches and reflects on life and how her husband treats her. She remembers that she was going to leave him when they were only dating. She also thought about leaving him after they got married. She felt that he was distant towards her putting all his time and attention into his work and not her.
The book A Child Called It, by Dave Pelzer, was such a riveting book that I most certainly couldn’t put down. One thing that surprised me throughout the whole book was the way that his mother treated him. Dave was treated very badly as his and his mothers relationship took a drastic turn. He had to endure not only physical pain but emotional pain too. His mother found many ways to torture him, such as making him swallow ammonia. Pelzer recounts,”With the spoon in her hand, Mother began to creep towards me.
Hello everyone, my name is Angelica Rodriguez. Today I will be talking about my my working thesis for my senior project and how I have been doing so far on my research. My thesis is parents’ and teachers lack of communication with their students can affect students academic success causing children to lose motivation for their education. Having programs that mentor parents’ and teachers on how to interact with their students and in essence will use those skills in their classrooms and homes.
Is identity genetic? Do cats love dogs? This question is so simple yet so hard. its easy to pull between the two but hard to choose one. Identity can be physically genetic but as far as personality wise its out the view. I disagree with Daniel Kahneman because he thinks personality is genetic. “people mood is really primarily by their genetic makeup and personality
Identity is consider as a genetic because your eye color, hair color,and skin color are from your parent gene that been given gene that been given to you as you were born, and you language you speak to communicate with your family, and you gender to represent who you really are.
My name is pretty interesting. The name Ewan in Greek means God’s Gift but the interesting thing about this situation is that I was born on December 25th. The name is Scottish and Celtic but the name got to Greece somehow and that’s what they interpreted it as. I think this is especially interesting because my parents did not know that it meant god’s gift. My name is very unique and I wouldn’t change it. I only know of two other people that have my name. The first one is the actor Ewan McGregor and the second is a man I met in Florida whose name tag said Ewan.
I am currently reading Andre Agassi's autobiography, Open. It is a book about his childhood and his introduction to tennis. Although through the book you learn he was hardly introduced, more accurately, he was buried in tennis. He explains in the book the pressure from his dad to be an amazing tennis player. From the moment of birth his dad had decided that Andre would be number one in the world and in order to do that he would have to coach him vigorously and love him apathetically. Andre's childhood was fairly miserable and he discusses it in great detail in the book.
Where do I begin? So, I was absent all week because I was really sick and my child was recovering. I had plenty of time to think about my project and how to become unstuck. My focus remains the same, and like in my previous blog, I will expand my interview group to as many parents as I can reach out to. I believe that will encourage my study because I will be seeing the contrast between how many parents actually make the effort to attend meetings and put in time into activities such as my project.

There are many types such as physical abuse, sexual abuse, emotional abuse, and child neglect. physical abuse is abuse that has physical contact with the victim such as punching, slapping, and may cause bruising or sometimes even bone fracturing.

Through countless squabbles and joyous moments, the sibling relationship is one of the most important relationships any human can experience. It is often the longest relationship a human will have; because this relationship spans the life of the siblings it is important to nurture a strong relationship between siblings to ensure that this relationship lasts. There are many ways to forge a strong relationship with siblings. Both parents and the individual siblings can play a role in solidifying this relationship.
Anyone with siblings can tell you that at least once in their lives, the question of who the favorite child is comes up. When this burning question if finally asked out loud to a parent, the responses are pretty common and never seriously answered. Although most parents answer with "you're all my favorite" or "I love you all equally", that is not the case. It turns out that surprisingly enough, a good amount of parent do have a favorite child and are willing to admit to it.
I’ve been interest in learning more about social pressure on teens. My topic question is: “ What are the different influences of social pressures that have an impact on teenagers lives?”. I already concluded that the influences are family, mass media and peer pressure but I would like to do more information about these pressures. I came up with this idea when I was speaking to my uncle and I remembered a time I was being pressured. My uncle discussed the dangers of the social pressures I was going through. As a teenager of course I ignored what he said but eventually I realize he was right.
The topic that I have chosen for my research is parental tough love. This topic interests me because I always wanted to know why some parents are extremely strict and have harsh rules that their children must follow. A few things that I already know about this topic is that one major reason for parents being tough on their kids is because they want their children to be mature, and wise when they get older and have to live on their own. Before I started my research, I was curious to know why must there sometimes be curfews, and why we usually get no freedom.
In Reeves' essay, "Shame Is Not a Four Letter Word," from http://www.nytimes.com/2013/03/16/opinion/a-case-for-shaming-teenage-pre..., the author states the how shame can either be positive or negative to reducing teen parent rates. Reeves describes opinions of many familiar people like Haydee Morales, who’s the vice president for education and training at Planned Parenthood at New York, and John Stuart Mill,a famous liberal philosophers.
When we consider the issue of young parents, some might wonder: How can our country decrease the number of young parents?
Something that I have been interested in learning more about has been the adversities that teen parents confront. I remember when two of my teen cousins were talking about how they had wish they’ve waited until they had a stable life to start their own family, but I was too young to understand. Lately, the issue has caught my eye again. I know that many people think that teens are becoming parents due to deficient in parenthood apprehension. From what I have heard, the majority of teen parents postpone their education in order to give all attention to the baby.
One day little Sally Knight was coloring a picture in her room. She was using her purple crayon until it broke. She said a word that she heard from her mother. It was a bad word; but she did not know it was a bad word. She thought everybody used that word.
Teen stress is a major issue among society. I believe that it has increased in this later generation because of the release of more deadly weapons and social problems that lead to stress. I believe that the biggest source of stress for a teen comes from the home or personal life outside of school.
In the newspaper The Washington Times, Maureen Branch wrote, LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Look at Hollywood and Mental Health, in which she explains how putting more laws and restrictions on guns won't solve the problem of deaths of innocent, whom are killed by "mentally ill who roam our streets," mentioned in the letter.
Whoever wrote this http://personal.crocodoc.com/ApaB0SM has the wrong idea. Texting is a good thing, it helps kids learn how to multi task. For example, a kid could be doing his doing his homework at the same time. Why is that a bad thing? Also, it saves a lot of time. For example, let's say you have to send to send in your report to your boss, and then you call him but the line is busy. In that case you're pretty much done. But if you text him or send it over to him using your cellphone, things work out much better for everyone.
