As for social history, after his parents got a divorce, Joshua started having a hard time in school.

I would always avoid reading anything to them or near them for the fear they would find out I was a terrible reader. It was easy to cover my bad reading, until fourth grade when we had to read aloud to the class. My parents had no reason to`question my skills in anything academic since I had straight A’s in all my classes. Looking back at this time in my life, I truly have no idea how I did so well in school but could not read. It wasn’t until my fourth grade teacher had a parent teacher conference with my mom, that my parents found out my reading level was actually two levels behind.
I started being disrespectful to my parents and not care about my grades. It was very challenging to even have a conversation with my parents because I wouldn 't listen, or wouldn 't care about the things they had to say. My freshman year was horrible but that was nothing compared to my sophomore year. My sophomore year was even more challenging cause right from the start I started to fool around and go out right after high school as if I didn’t have any homework. Most of

As a child growing up in an Asian household, I quickly became aware of how different my parents’ style of teaching was when compared to my other friends in elementary school. I remember feeling very surprised to hear how lenient most of my friend’s families were. I could never dream of even asking my parents at that age if I was allowed to stay over at a friend’s house.
