In “The Hallowe’en Party” by Miriam Waddington and “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson, symbols are used to enhance the importance of traditions. It is inevitable to say that “The Hallowe’en Party” is a major symbol itself. The party represents togetherness; a time for friends to get together, leaving cultural clichés aside. Mr. Luria is opposed to his children from going to the party, but even he has to give in because after all, “… [they will] only remember the fun they had at MacNeils” (Waddington, para 34). The excitement described by David goes on to reveal that they indeed had a pleasant time; hence, also evolving Mr. Luria’s views.
The writer further explains that the idea of winning sometimes causes severe injuries that may prevail for a lifetime. In these games, a child may crash into one another accidently that creates a fear of getting hurt. Just to protect themselves some children back out of many games and are left behind when it comes to the development of their bodies. The rest of the children who are part of these games are in a constant pressure from their parents and coaches that cause the stress and anxiety. Furthermore, the writer states that this “sport becomes job like”.
In an interpreter starts to run on autopilot and tunes out, they may miss important cues that the presenter is trying to express in order to be funny. In this case, it would leave less time for the interpreter to mentally prepare for reproducing the humor in the other language. Some main cues to be looking out for are smiling, laughter, or a pause in which the presenter is expecting a reaction from the audience (Hoicka & Akhtar, 2012). Elena Hoicka and Nameera Akhtar (2012) conducted an experiment that focused on how parents with young children could tell if they child was kidding around by how often the children actually portrayed the cues.
Recently, there has been controversy over a certain topic. Are kids deluded narcissists, too coddled, and spoiled? Kids in this generation have awards handed to them like candy, believe that their online appearance is a true reflection of themselves, and are taught from an early age that “life is fair”. This is a problem because our generation is not learning how to deal with real life problems on their own, is relying on social media for their self-esteem, and is completely spoiled and ungrateful. First and foremost, kids are being coddled to the point where it could actually cause harm to their futures.
Have you heard about the numerous amounts of kids that have been injured due to fidget spinners? Kids are using fidget spinners at school and getting hurt when doing tricks. Liam believes that students at his school should be allowed to use fidget spinners in class. His principal, Principal Schwarts, thinks that the use of fidget spinners at school shouldn’t be allowed. Liam claims that they help with concentration but Principal Schwarts says that there is no evidence about fidget spinners helping with concentration, and are disruptive to others.
Rollershoes culture is a kind of culture emphasizing on competing on extreme tricks rather than entertainment. That goes against with the initial idea of rollershoes to wear for fun. Unfortunately, young people are hunters of excitement and danger, which makes them more vulnerable to the unhealthy culture of rollershoes. What makes it worse is that young people's easy access to rollershoes empowers them to develop such culture. Also, such culture may alienate young people from their parents and friends.
For example, the Goosebumps are not books that a mom should let her kid read. By covering satanic and dark themes, the Goosebumps did an excellent job of creating a “horrid wonderland” for young children and misleading them to unnecessary danger related to real life. A typical Goosebumps story will look like this: an ordinary teenager was dragged in an evil plan by usually experiencing vicious and supernatural things occurred around him or her. This child then would need to save him or her self out of the situation of danger and strange people or monsters.
They could possibly then start to not do good and their classes or at anything at school because it might have a hard effect on them. If we keep letting it be allowed then this could be a serious consequence and your child's life if they are some of the weaker ones. ‘’Position on Dodgeball in physical education the states,’’Some kids may like it - the most skilled, the most confident. But many do not! Certainly not the student who gets hit hard in the stomach, head, or groin.

Participation trophies are a threat to children’s social skills and their future. Participation trophies have been a front line topic that started in the early 2000’s, people claim that it gives children a confidence boost and makes them tackle their dreams, but in reality it awards them by making them spoiled and they will quit the first time they 're discouraged or don’t succeed.

Secondly I will be looking into the child’s emotional support that the child may need when starting the setting, along with the attachments of the child that will need to be built or have already been put in place. When planning for a child to start a new setting there will be certain things that will need to be taken into consideration, for example; the child at hand may have never been separated from their primary carers beforehand.
In the journal article, Tim Gill wrote about the society and also about the safety of children playing outside affecting child’s growth. All the safety was design to prevent injuries and protect children but actually children are getting more fragile because of the overprotective adults. He even showed concrete evidence to support his statement. Playground becomes too safe that more broken limbs among children occur these days and they have more scars. In addition to restricted freedom, children change in attitude to take risk in society which means they are afraid to take any risk in what they are doing in real world.
Animals once worshipped like gods are now abused and used for entertainment. The circus and SeaWorld, two places common for entertaining children, display their animals in grand shows, but that’s only the tip of the iceberg of the truth. Hidden, are the cruel practices, immoral punishments, and unhealthy psychological effects that most of the animals experience. There is a reason why animal rights activists protested. There is a reason why Sea World is ending its world famous Orca whale shows.
