When you and mamma get old, I’ll feed you out of this wooden dish.” (lines 16-17) This was the moment that the little grandson’s parent realized just how badly they’ve been treating his grandfather, basically the climax of the folktale The Old Grandfather and His Little Grandson retold by Leo Tolstoy. However, in the poem Abuelito Who by Sandra Cisneros, the climax wasn’t too noticeable. Mostly, because it was a poem. These sources are about how you affect your elders and family in general. Both sources also show to always love your family and to cherish the moments you have with them but they also have some differences and similarities.The stories convey that the grandchildren love their grandparents and one way or another, understand them the best.
“The Old Grandfather and His Little Grandson” actually gives more of a joyous and cheerful change of attitude towards the end of the story. The change in characters in this story actually lead to the ending being settled and content. The grandson’s parents were feeding Grandfather from a wooden dish. Grandson sees how poorly the parents are treating Grandfather. “His father asked him, ‘What are you making, Misha?’ The little grandson said ‘I’m making a wooden bucket.
Although, depending on how well they know the person they could also talk for awhile, and the fact that the characters are old indicates that this is more likely to happen, because they probably do not have anything better to do. The woman then looks at her clock, indicating she has been there for a long time, and then accuses her husband of “...getting more forgetful every day.” This assertion only makes sense when the joke is revealed, which then allows for the reader to realize the irony of the situation. The clock also represents and symbolizes the old generation, regardless of gender as forgetful. In the concluding panel, the couples’ daughter asks the husband, who is seen conveniently laying on the couch reading the news, where her mom is. He responds by telling
These efforts are focused on federal and state agencies offering fraud protection education to senior citizens through workshops, emails, and postal mailings (Swanson et al., 2012, p. 424). According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (2010), crimes affecting the elderly are based on many factors such as they often have good credit, have a nest egg, and own their own homes. In addition, seniors were raised in a different era where they were taught to be polite and trusting, leaving them susceptible to fraudulent promises of others. Cognitive impairments of this aging population also make them more attractive since they may not be able to supply investigators with enough information to build a case against the perpetrator

Even within "Tintern Abbey," Wordsworth shows an unpleasant time through his lamentation of the loss of youth. In some ways the poem refers to a crisis of passing time, maturation, and the effects of memory on "that best portion of a good man's life" (34). By claiming "all its aching joys are now no more," (85) he laments the passage of time. Memory helps to highlight the good in these times long passed. This crisis of age is eased through his utilization of the memories he has created at places like Tintern Abbey.
All in all, the course, Adult Protective, has made me better understand the seriousness of adult maltreatment, because it shows the seriousness and actual situations older individuals face on a daily basis. I did not fully understand what happens to certain older adults when they get older. When we are young, we think about what happens when people get older and we think either they die peacefully in their sleep at home or they move to an assistant living facility. However, that’s not reality and after reading “Protecting the Shadow,” it gives clear and understood insight of what a lot of elderly people go through. Not to mention, Social workers are dealing with helping as many individuals as they can who are dealing with adult maltreatment.
In order to better analyze this phenomenon, I will use my daily experience to discuss the barriers between teens and elderly. Also, I would like to suggest some solutions for building up the good communication between them. First of all, I would like to share my daily experience about my grandmother and me. My grandma speaks Haifeng words daily and not good at speaking Cantonese. Although I can speak simple Haifeng words, there are some difficult words I cannot understand.
At the beginning of the poem, McDonald introduces Ali as a man who lived a happy simplistic life, until the day his four sons and wife died. This narrative in itself evokes great sympathy in me for Yusman Ali. However, as the poem develops the author goes on to describe the devastating effects the death of his family had on him, bringing forth greater sympathetic feelings from me. McDonald writes, “… whose heart [Yusman Ali] I think has learned to break a hundred times a day” By including this hyperbole in the opening stanza, the writer introduces the emotional disparity felt by Yusman Ali to the reader, using the adjective “hundred” to emphasize the intensity of Ali’s torturous emotions. This brief introduction to the emotions of Yusman Ali evoked in me sympathy for Yusman Ali.
Grief and loss, because these a major factors in Paul’s actionpattern. The story shows his dealing with grief by revisiting an important place of memory, and slowly becoming at peace with his sisters tragic death by drawing her for the first time. The third theme is family because the story reveals the importance of a safe upbringing, and the psychological damage that can be inflicted if it is absent. In conclusion, “People-Watching” is a gripping short story that at first eyesight is a tragic but sweet story about an introverted boy, but in deeper sight, juggles difficult themes as loss and grief. The story’s structure and the detail of the language makes it possible to get close to the protagonist and his development.
O’Brien started his chapter with Rat Kiley writing a sincere letter to his deceased best friend, Curt Lemon’s sister about how he feel sorry and how he will take care of her after the war (64-65). Therefore, if we trace things back a little bit, we can clearly see that O’Brien is writing that way to express his fellow soldier’s sorrow of losing his best friend. His writing style is unique in a way that he doesn’t express the feelings just bluntly. He could just add words that emphasizes sadness, but instead, he added the act of his friend to show the underlying feeling about one during the war. Therefore, after reading about that chapter, people will say they were so cruel during the war, but if they think deeply, all chapter is about the writer’s friend grieving for his dead
Hey Issac, I hope all is well. I enjoyed reading you little story about your elderly petite morning patient, it was cute. You made a lot of good points about first impressions and how it can help make the therapist sessions much smoother. This I believe is important because just like you and I, we can tell when people do not want to deal with us of are impatient or are just having a bad day. This energy sometimes rubs off on us and we treat this person just how they treat us and at the end of the day no one is happy.
