As a parent Souad encourages her children to be with someone they would be happy with something that would not happen in her country where arranged marriages were the way of the land “It may be an Arab, a Jew, a Spaniard, an Italian. The most important thing is that they choose the person they love and that they are happy, because I haven't been” (Souad 181). She hopes that her children's life will be better than her own, a common belief between parents and what many parents work for
I cannot strive for perfection because real girls are not perfect and perfect girls are not real. I can only try to be the best possible version of myself. I like to think of my family as the “American Dream” that came true. Both of my parents came to America with the hopes of finding a stable and rewarding life for themselves. Though they had to face a few obstacles, such as layoffs, they always held their heads up high and found a way to find solutions.
Even though her lack of money, her hope never wavered. She believes that she and her parents are very close to achieving their American dream. Her mother is going back to college to try to support Madison better, and her father is hopeful that he soon will find a job. Madison herself is hopeful that since she is doing well in high school she eventually she can go to college to get a decent job to support her new family. Madison says: “Education is the key to a lot of things, and it is the key to ending the cycle of poverty”.
Autonomy of Marriage Growing up in an affluent and conservative family, my parents have always instructed me to find a mate with a matching social status. However, my family never restricted my brother and sister to marry who they love, which unfortunately either of them has done, provided they find their mates to be fitting their personalities and family status. During the classroom discussion on this issue, although I had some frictions with my original views, my central claim—parents should not control children’s marriage, but children themselves should exercise discretion. My parents’ view has also shaped my view on this issue. I believe parents should not control over whom their children marry, but the children themselves need to exercise discretion on whom they want to mate.
Forrest’s mom knows he will succeed and make the most out of life, regardless of his lower intelligence. She always reminds him that he is the same as everyone else, and has the same chance at success. Consequently, Forrest lives an eventful life that is full with accomplishments and success. Although the pygmalion effect is often applied to teachers and students, this case in the movie is an example of it as well. If Forrest’s mom did not expect Forrest to do just as well in life as any other kid, then he most likely would have failed.

Having kids for most people is a lifelong dream they have, while others do not see themselves having kids, or women who want kids and cannot. For women who do not want kids, it is simply because they do not want them nor do they want the financial trouble, responsibility, and they want more time with their careers. By choosing not to have kids is not being selfish, its being responsible. For many young adults that are focused and devoted to their careers and in serious relationships, having kids is just not in the picture. They are not willing nor have the longing to give up their hard-earned money, energy, themselves, or time to raise a child.
I hope everyones parents are as great and supportive as mine. I wish everyone could have equal advantages growing into an adult.

People may think all writers are God of writing and they do not make mistakes while writing. However, there are many kind of writers. There is always levels on everything and for writers as well.
