I listened to my mother whenever she told me to not let things bother me and as a mind still developing and growing, I could not make sense of the negativity in the world. Even as a pre-teenager, I was not affected. I told myself that people are inherently evil and there is nothing I can do about that except being true to who I am and to not change myself. Now here I am in my second year of High School. This year is when that shield of indifference started to break down.
They say middle child is always overshadowed by his siblings; actually it is somewhat true to me. But I never feel ignored or unwanted yet I find this as an advantage because I don’t want to be their center of attention. I’m not used with people’s attention and to be honest I find it awkward when somebody will praise me for the reason that I have no idea what will I respond to them. I am a type of person who hates expectations from other people. Perhaps this made independent from my parents.
Some people learn morals quite quickly while some children even have better morals than most adults. Then the stubborn people usually go through hundred moral dilemmas before they learn a moralistic value. My life has given me the opportunity to gain morals to help me experience life to the fullest. My life lessons are the reason why I have a strong family values, humility, and character. I’ve heard so many times “you can’t choose your family” but if I could I surely would have never chosen the one I got stuck with.
Even though, a lot of people in the society do not like talking about their age, because people discriminate or judge whether they are old or young. When I was younger, I never cared what age I was, because I was young, care free and did not have a care in the world, but now that I am older and I am an adult, I hate when people ask me about my age, even though I am only twenty-one years old, I still feel old. Now that I am older, I do not enjoy my birthday as much as I did in the past, if it was up to me, I would want to stay twenty-one for the rest of my life. I feel
Permissive parenting is a parenting style that is a parenting style that can be argued as bad and good to a child. While authoritarian and authoritative parents have rules set for their child, permissive parents don't have many rules for their child to follow and they are considered more laid back. The parents may set rules to try and keep their children from harm but they rarely ever enforce them and take action. The reason on why permissive parents do this is because they feel “they want to be more like a friend than a parent and think parental controls and discipline measures will hinder that relationship” (Stephan Walton). Amy Morin said, “They often encourage their children to talk with them about their problems, but they usually don't put much effort into discouraging poor choices or bad behavior.” This shows that as parents, they can make their child open up and talk to them but never help them make the right decisions.
It is difficult to not compare yourself to someone you know so well and spend so much time with, it is mostly harmless, but it can become harmful if you dwell on it for too long. Spending most of your life striving to be like someone else is tiering and useless, there is only one of every person on the earth, you can 't better yourself with the mindset that one person is better than anyone else. I spent a long time when I was younger comparing myself to my sister. I thought that since I wasn 't like her I was somehow unworthy. We are different
I would wish to have a good relationship with my children. This one is a bit more personal than my last two wishes. Although this is the last wish I would wish for, it is not the least important to me. Growing up I did not really have a great relationship with my dad. I would and still always see boys who have good relationships with their father and it makes me jealous.
I have learned how to cope with things I don’t like very much being a big sister. For example when they won’t listen to me, it makes me go crazy, but I have learned to cope with it better. When they won’t do things they’re supposed to do like cleaning our room I have to cope with it until they do it, I DO NOT like things to be a mess! Which in turn has helped me to be able to cope with things like big
This is because everything that I have experienced before has made me to become the person I am today and taught me something that I will never get to learn: being the most mature children in the family, become more cautious in trusting people, and being able to do public speaking. First and the foremost, being a child in a big family is something that I have once been upset about. There would be at least one child in the family that would not get that much attention from the parents. I am the third child out of six siblings and I would say that I am that one child. Growing up as the youngest child –before my younger sister was born
Our relationship was also affected by the paradox of affection on multiple occasions. The paradox of affection is the idea that “although affection is intended and usually perceived as positive, it can backfire for a number of reasons and produce negative outcomes”. One of the stranger things about my partner’s reluctance towards affection was she hated receiving gifts of any kind. On her birthday or Valentine’s day, I would get her a gift and she would always react negatively by asking why I got her the gift and try to to deny taking it. She would then get mad at me because I was supposed to know she hated receiving gifts but I couldn’t help it because I’d always want to get her
