This type of family will greatly affect the behavior of the child because the parent’s (either mother or father) attention will be shifted to their new spouses and sometimes forget their children. This will give a big impact to the behavior of the child because he or she feels neglected or loneliness. But the major composition of a family that surely gives a big impact to the child is a broken family. The family can be broken in a variety of ways; Divorce, annulment, separation, desertion, and death mean that the family is structurally incomplete. When children are placed in institutions or in foster homes, family ties are broken.
The L.R.A. began to spread throughout countries like Sudan and DRC. As the spread began throughout countries like Sudan and DRC they struggled to put a stop to Kony’s work for several reasons. The main reason behind struggle for Uganda, DRC, and Sudan is a lack of money and soldiers.

In the second verse Hill says “Phony nationalism”. This is speaking on how America is seen as such a great country even though America has been the cause of genocides, discrimination, slavery, and racism. We can 't just forget the injustices past citizens and ancestors have faced just because the world we are living in today is safer than it was then.

I think that the character Katniss Everdeen from the hunger games by Suzanne Collins and Julian from Wonder by R.J. Palacio have many differences, but I 'm going to find out the similarities between them such as being deceiving. The first reason why I think Julian is deceiving is because they act differently in front of different people the adults think that Julian is a great kid to have, but to the kids he is a bully and some people want nothing to do with him. This proves that julian is deceiving because he has gotten the adults to believe that he is the best, but in all reality he is not. And why I think Katniss is deceiving is for mostly the same reason but instead of acting different in front of people she acts different in front of the

The movie, Freedom Writers did a very good job displaying the poor education system that was changing the lives of students already barely surviving in the violence and gangs. The use of the comparison of visuals what something the producers seemed to commonly use. The comparison of good to poor school materials was agonizing to see, especially with a up-close shot to Mrs. Gruwell trying to keep a smile on her face. Children are the future of our world, but many still will disown kids that aren 't the same ethnic background. Realizing this was essential, and luckily Erin Gruwell was able to do it and ultimately save her kids lives.
Bullying Can Be Prevented Bullying is a form of violence to pick on victims because they are different from their bullies, have insecurity/jealousy or home problems. The hate towards their victim has something to do with the victim having an unusual gift or being intelligent the bullies has yet to become. It is important that this behavior should be prevented or it will become worse. Bullying is one of the main issues public and private schools have to face on a day-to-day basis.
