The author avoids using words like I think, I believe, and maybe. A good example of his assertiveness is on page 13 “Additionally, increased visitation will help the reunification process between mother and child. During the stressful and seemingly never-ending process of regaining custody of one’s child, visitation can help motivate the incarcerated mother and encourage her not to give up in battle.” Bogans is absolutely sure that child visitation has a positive impact on mothers. Also, by Bogans using jargon (which are words or phrases used in a particular group) throughout the essay helps readers believe the author is very knowledgeable.

When people hear about a news of a rape incident between both genders, they automatically assume the female is the victim and the male is the offender.

For this reason, parents with daughters feel skeptical when their daughters is around a male since they believe she might be forced into sexual conducts. Society believe when males have a high tendency to feel sexual pleasure, they can not control themselves and will force another individual into sexual conducts in order to satisfy their urge.

For instance, Jane refers to the social context (going out, being with friends) very often, but insists on rejecting any suspicion of influence: “I think with me it was mainly my friends, but nobody, nobody ever like told me to do it” (50-51).

Another way of constructing the self-determination theme is by constructing the decision-making process in relation to smoking as an act of free will.
