She found any excuse to punish Dave, while favoring her other children, and her punishments grew more demoralizing the older he got.

The first quote is just crazy to me, how scary would it be to have to wake up in the morning and wonder if your mother made it through the night. The second quote shows how big of a problem her level of poverty is and that she is neglected as a child. In the end, racism and poverty can be summed up under one major theme, bullying.

His teacher described him as a likable and friendly youngster who always obeyed when spoken to but also repeatedly disrupted the class by his antics and could no longer be tolerated in the classroom. The teacher reported that he hummed and make noises under his breath, blurted out answers without raising his hand, and always tried to be first when the teacher asked a question, even though he often did not have the answer when called upon. The teacher had to remind
Introduction Child support a system filled with large flaws and injustices. Each year thousands of fathers are having mistakenly identified as “deadbeat”. Most child support guidelines are based on a flat percentage of one parents income, and with disregard of the noncustodial parent availability to pay, in some cases if noncustodial parent remarries, the income of both (the noncustodial parent and his or hers new legal partner) is taken in consideration in child support calculations to decide the amount of child support.
