Every few minutes we see in the news a child being abused or getting hurt, but there is something we are not as cautious about as parents. Parents are often not cautious about their young ones when it comes to preparing hot water with them around. Being a mother of maybe two or three is hard to deal with all at once. Even a simple task as preparing a shower can be dangerous as they stated in “The first thing you hear is a terrible scream” written by Lucy Atkins, a Britain reporter from theguardian newspaper. Atkins wrote about a mother who was preparing the bath for her two young children, two-year old Joseph and three-year old Francesca, when an incident happened in the bedroom and she went to attend it. The mother left the hot water running

For this task, I created a diary because I think that this style of writing would be an extremely effective way to show another major character’s emotions and ideas, as it can be written from a first person perspective, giving a huge amount of insight. I based my task on a short story by Edgar Allen Poe, titled “The Tell-Tale Heart.” I chose this piece as it gives the opportunity to be very creative in my writing, but also introduces various constraints, such as writing in a similar style to Poe, and trying to avoid any plot holes. This task specifically relates to part 4 of the language and literature course, being; literature, as the stimulus text is a piece of literature, as is my piece of writing. “The Tell-Tale Heart” contains two characters, an old man, and the man’s servant. The story is written from a first person perspective, which gives insight into the servant’s ideas. In the story, it is implied

Growing up as a woman has been quite difficult in this generation, however, growing up around thirty years ago must have been more difficult. Back in the 1900’s, women had different social norms to deal with in society. Women had to stay at home, be housewives, do the laundry, and cook while men went out and worked to obtain money for their family. In Story of an Hour by Kate Chopin, she tells the struggles that women went through back in the 1990 's and the social norms that women had to go through. Chopin addresses many instances of symbolism to portray the feeling Mrs. Mallard has about her own thoughts and experiences with or without a man in her life.
The house is filled with Father and Thomas 's yells. Why can 't my family understand that my brother, Thomas, is a Whig? He only has different stand points on this new act England has passed, The Stamp Act. Ever since March 22, 1765 when the Stamp Act was passed (history.com) that 's all that is talked about in the colonies anymore. I wish I could tell them that I am a Whig too, but Mother and Father would hate me forever. They would maybe even kill me if they knew that I came along with Thomas to help The Sons and Daughters of Liberty every time we can. Why can 't the just understand that all this act is is Taxation without representation?! Just that one phrase sends a wave of adrenaline throughout me. “Amity! Get in here right now to
Why? Why was I cursed to live this life of rage and pain? Why did our ancestor cause us to be cursed with generations of life-liquid thirsty pain and rage filled lives? Why does one man’s actions define a generation to follow? We weren’t even given a chance to be different from him. Our fate was sealed even before we were conceived. We were all destined to be the same as him. The only difference is that each one of us more rage filled than the last with a stronger craving for life-liquid and revenge. Some of us don 't even kill for the revenge the taste of battle-sweat is enough.

For the parent-child interaction observation, I decided to use my community park as the public setting. My observation consisted of watching the interaction of a mother and her two sons, who seemed to be twins around the age of six or seven years old. I observed the interaction from afar without them being aware that I was observing, which allowed me to note a true naturalistic observation without manipulation of the situation.
Kate Chopin is the author of the most popular short story "The Story of an Hour". Chopin paints a bleak picture of marriage in this story. It is a short story focusing on a young married woman of the late nineteenth century as she reacts to the news that her husband has died in a train accident. The story was written in a time period when women did not really have right to express their feeling and desire. Women were supposed to stay home and take care of the family whereas the husbands went out to work. Women really lived a silent life. To convey the theme of women’s role in marriage and feminine identity, Chopin skillfully uses the character Mrs. Mallard and the symbols of closed door versus open window.
