By establishing a worker/client relationship, this will provide Laura with a secure base to operate from in the future. She will be able to confidently explore her historical, current, and future relationship with her mother knowing that she can receive comfort and reassurance from me, her social worker. Once she recognizes this secure base, I will assist her in discovering how she currently handles her relationship with her mother. During this relational discovery process with her mother, I will also allow her to explore her relationship with me, showing Laura how her previous ways of dealing with others could be positively changed through the change of her various internal behavioral models. Through this social worker and client relationship exploration, Laura will discover how her current perceptions of her mother are connected to expectations from their relationship when she was a child, providing her the opportunity to view the current relationship differently.
Finch instills the importance of getting an education to Scout. Towards the beginning of the book Scout gets into an argument at school causing her not to want to return to school. Atticus hear of this and informs Scout “You Miss Scout Finch, are of common folk. You must obey the law.” (Lee 40).
If students are bound to cheat and the honor code is not being enforced or is not fair, why have it? The environment in many schools impacts how students view the honor code. A school with a cheater mentality and an overall acceptance of cheating and plagiarism will have no use for an honor code, since they will not follow it. However, change the environment of the type of students and an honor code can now become beneficial and essential (Jennifer and
Emma might have a bad memory when it comes to school since her suspected abuser was a school staff member. In the case it mentions that she has trouble regulating her emotions. That could mean a lot of things leading to her psychological problems. There is no mentioning of her close friends, so we can assume she does not have any. Her parochial school seems very concern for Emma’s well-being, concerned with the fact that she might be falling behind and feeling troubled at school.

It's just curiosity. But parents telling them is not a good idea. Some parents assume that because the child has experienced many of the same events the parent has in that household the child probably knows why the parents had to divorce. Even so, the parent has to find a way to heal the scar that the child has instead of leaving it as it is just because the parents experienced the same thing. Other parents want to protect their children from experiencing or even knowing about unhappy or unpleasant events so they decide to tell them very little about the actual reasons for the divorce.
Oprah Winfrey points out that “Sometimes you find out what you are supposed to be doing by doing the things you are not supposed to do”. Consequently, her words have been my thoughts in the last couple months as I have realized the purpose of my doing in life as a school social worker. At this point of my career, I have realized my doing in life is to give back to those who are vulnerable and are in need of help which is one of the reasons why I have decided to pursue my Master Degree of Social Work. Typically, some characteristics that a social worker should have are empathy, courage, respect for diversity, and being ethical and flexible.
For new social workers, this reflection may be helpful as they define their roles. Through a series of professional and personal experiences with Sara, I learned that boundaries must foster a positive relationship and prevent potential conflicts. Sara, age 51, whom I had never met before, requested tutoring from me. After we finished our sessions, she asked if we could maintain contact regarding her education and career goals.

Brenna would also benefit by looking for employment, this type of intervention would be best on an individual setting, with her and I brainstorming on places to work and filling out applications that best meet her needs. Lastly, if Brenna would choose to rekindle her relationship with her mother, I would choose to work with her independently to talk about the issues that she has faced but I would also refer her to a group that could be of benefit to her. Within her group, I would it be a support group for children that are trying to rekindle that relationship with their parents and their emotions that they are feeling in
The foundation phase engages parents because the school setting should have an open door policy. This is where the setting allows the parents to come into the setting whenever instead of making appointments. Another way that foundation phase engages parents is having observations and assessment, this is where the practitioner does assessments so they can learn about the child’s development, their interests and most importantly their needs if they have any. Main my setting the staff would share their planning with the child’s parent or carer. This will give the staff the opportunity to ask parents/carers about any ideas relating to the learning environment or management of the setting.
If parents allow this to happen, their kids will undoubtedly execute the mistakes their parents shielded them from later in life, unaware of the consequences. Kids need to learn from their blunders the hard way, to assure they won’t make the same fault again, For instance, my mom always tells me when to begin my homework, but it makes me not want to do it. Likewise, Ron Goldblatt, executive producer of the Association of Independent Maryland Schools, emphasizes, “...it is a real problem for a parent to work against their child’s independent thought and action…” (Strauss 1). As you can see, parent involvement only causes children to want to make the errors more.
Later in life you will not be able to simply copy another person or look to the internet to answer all your problems. If you go down that route you run the risk of your employer firing you based on your inability to complete the assigned task. Pelton’s punishment was necessary because in a way it is similar to the consequences you might receive on a job later in life. Within the student handbook for the Piper School District it clearly specifies that the punishment for plagiarism will be an immediate zero on the given assignment. Since the student handbook is easily accessible by the student body, they should have known about this rule and the consequences of failing to abide by it.
