For example, if a male does not have a father to discipline him, he may turn into a kid that fights at school, because he does not have that discipline that he would get from a father. However, just because they only have a mother does not mean they will end up violent. As long as their mother raises them correctly, they will be a well adjusted citizen. It is also stated that if a single mom has a child they may become poor. Robert Franklin, author of the article “Children Need Both Parents, Even after Divorce” , implies, “single mothers with children living with them are far more likely to live in poverty than is any other segment of society”.
“With appropriate treatment most children who commit crimes, even the most violent crimes, can be rehabilitated and become responsible adults.”(Berger) The reason why is because their brains are still changing they are still going throw a change they are still growing. The brain where it “regulates aggression, long range planning, mental, flexibility, abstract thinking has not yet been developed.”(Berger) In the article “Justice for Juveniles” a child is tried as an adult his parents don’t want him to go to jail because they say it is too big for him, and he wouldn’t last a day in there. The judge didn’t bother to
It was because you do not feel like you fit in and that is what teenagers desire most. People used to ask me why I wanted to leave homeschooling in the first place. My answer lacked the drama that they were so eager to hear. I know that they were waiting for me to say that I wanted to be more social or that I needed more friends, but in reality I wanted to create more opportunities for myself. Opportunities that, if I had chosen to stay home schooled, I probably would have never been provided with.
As a result, family bonding is decreasing and kids are not prepared with hands on experience. Parents want to be nice, so their child will love them more and they can be the “cool dad” or “cool mom” in the child’s heart. But it should be the parents’ job to step up and do what is best for the protection of a child, which can be read in Cari Romm’s online article from The Cut, “Is It Really Possible for Parent to Be Friends With Their Kid”. Also as the world to grow wealthier, it seems children are no longer enforced with chores and responsibilities by parents possibly due to the fact that they no longer appreciate the value of money. So in result they believe that money can solve problems and responsibilities.
Middle school is a time where kids start to develop their own identity, build new friendships, and transition into being a young adults. Personally, middle school was a rough time; I lacked confidence in I was, and the fear that I wasn't good enough controlled my life. In seventh grade one of the girls I was friends with made the comment that I was too fat to be her friend, and I didn't deserve to be included in our friend group. As a result of being too afraid of finding new friends, who would accepted me for who I was as a person rather than what I looked like, I tried to gain the approval of the ones I already had. First, I made a new diet.
So many boys are told from a young age that it’s not manly to cry, or to hold their emotions in and be strong. This mentality is so damaging to males as they never learn how to properly deal with their pain and emotions, yet the damage done to men is so overlooked. People often believe that women are more likely to experience depression or feel suicidal, yet that isn’t true. Boys are five times more likely to commit suicide than girls, and suicide is the third leading cause of death for boys (Newsom et al. 2015).
Because of their mistake of not pursuing a higher education, at home, school is one of our top priorities. Becoming a first generation college student has been stressful to say the least. There is a lot more pressure on you than there may be with others who have family members who have gone to college before. Getting a poor grade on a test is totally different to a first generation student, failing this test will lower
Elementary school is a big step, especially getting ready for middle school. For example if one is bitter towards someone, meaning jealous or angry, then their middle school years won’t go very well. They will go through being angry and it will make them focus on less important stuff rather than their studies or sports. Similar to the boy in “The Jacket” by “Gary Soto,”he goes through his life being jealous of kids that are happy or have good relationships and new clothes. The boy does not like the jacket his mother got him and does not appreciate it enough, even though it gets the job done.
What people don't realize is, that a person difference should not hinder them in anyway but be accepted and celebrated. But often time it is easier said than done. Carla was bullied at her second school by a bunch of boys because she was developing in ways that the boys thought was funny and they ridiculed her for it. “No one can make you feel inferior without your consent” (Eleanor Roosevelt) which Carla gave without trying to stop the boys teasing her by telling the teachers or her parents so that the problem could be fixed. Not only is it difficult to learn a new language but to try to adjust to a new environment as well.
Aunt Alexandra considers the Ewell family as "poor white trash." Ted wants to go to school but there are many obstacles in his way. One obstacle is his father, who believes that his children do not need an education. Another obstacle is that Ted has a low attendance rate at school and still is in the 3rd grade even though he is 14 years old. When ted goes to school, he is behind, but tries to work his hardest and tries to persevere.
But I also became a little heavier, because I was getting farther from Mom.” (pg. 52) Oskar losing his dad at such a young age is tragic. As smart he is, he should try and move on for the sake of his mother, because he still has a mother that cares about him.
American teens My life compared to the Americans in the documentary is totally reversed compared to theirs. For starters, my parents hopefully don 't expect anything from me at all, only that I get through high school and get a job. They wouldn’t say that I wasn’t special just because my grades were above average but not #topoftheclass grades, they would instead encourage me to try harder in a good way I think. Then the Americans always have a pressure built up on them, for if they don’t get through high school and don 't get into college they would be nobodies and society would think of them as losers and failures. I don’t think that anybody would think of me a failure just because I didn’t pass school, they would probably start to think
