If Gonzales were to be deported, Torres would be left to continue raising her two born children, while also having to deal with pregnancy and eventually an infant child. How is a mother expected to do all of this without a father to help her out? The lack of one parent could eventually lead to problems with the children because the overview of three children can be near impossible. I believe that the most difficult part for Gonzales’ wife will be having an infant to raise alone, if Gonzales is deported. That is a life adjustment that, while she has done it twice before with her husband, is quite challenging to do solo.
Trying to make a way in an already poor community and being different had the refugees wondering if the United States was what they really expected it to be. As Luma bonded with the boys she made a close bond with their families also. Luma wasn’t a refugees but she knew what it felt like to be an outsider. Luma helped the refugee families get jobs, also hired tutors for her players to improve their English. Luma had become a safety net for many of the refugee families.
At this point it is difficult for African American mothers to keep control of their children and their upbringing. Once the mother looses all her control the child will then soon have these ideas that are later harder to change and soon fall in this cycle that most African American mothers try to avoid. Most of the reasoning these behaviors come around is that being a single African American mother is hard enough especially since these mothers started off as teens. Teens mothers are not matured enough to nurture her child and to the mothers who were old enough to bare children, this was something normal for her since she as well was raised in setting of low income. Something that is comfortable and normal to her with her children being raised in low-income household.
Introduction Although 51 years ago our country passed laws such as the civils rights act, it is prominent in areas that discrimination and stereotypes still live on. This is a major issue when it comes to the children who are raised in racially secluded communities and also do not have much of a diverse ethnic influence while growing up. These discriminations and stereotypes that plague our youth are many times a result of parents past prejudices integrated with lack of diversity in areas or culture that result in a lack in their education.
My interviewee is also trying hard to complete college, but is torn by her very family oriented background. She feels like she is forced to choose between her family and her schooling. I automatically felt that her family was in the wrong for not supporting her want to continue her education, but I did not really take her culture into consideration when
(Pg. 4) when she was asked what she was going to be when she grows up. She, and her father, were constantly criticized by others, including family, because Mr. Blackwell taught his daughters the same her taught his sons, which was not very common and extremely frowned upon (Pg. 7). Elizabeth was faced with the hardships of money, means of travel, and doing
Quite the contrary, all parents in the study wanted the best for their children; however, middle class families had availability to resources and knowledge that working class and poor parents simply could not provide. This was most apparent in chapter 13 as the author revisits the children and interviews them, post-high school graduation. Middle class children, who had the continual guidance of their parents, often went on to college. In contrast, lower income children relied on schools as their channel towards college; while for some this was effective, many of the children in the study failed to continue on to higher education. This was intensified with children in the lowest income bracket.
In a research done by John Hopkins it was concluded that “They found that a child 's fate is in many ways fixed at birth — determined by family strength and the parents ' financial status. The kids who got a better start — because their parents were married and working — ended up better off. Most of the poor kids from single-parent families stayed poor.”
The children of the undocumented are often subjected to countless disadvantages throughout not only their social lives but their academic experiences also. In many cases, the parents of the children come with little to no education, leaving the student rather isolated in the experience(Racial Domination).Whether or not the child was born in the United States or also crossed over the academic disadvantages seem to follow the child through their lives. From early ages many of the children of the undocumented are forced to go to schools in which they do not receive the same level of education or opportunities as kids whose parents make more money(white kids). Because their parents are forced to live in the shadows many can not even have open conversations with their kids teachers for free of persecution.
On the other hand, child labor sprung up a big issue during that time. Children were underpaid, abused, had a very low education rate, but also had to work to support their family. Later, reformers and lawmakers tried to pass laws to stop, and help decrease the amount of child labor happening in their state, but that did not help much because as the inventors
Some children have a tough time already adjusting to a new environment so moving to new place is even more challenging. Although military children have already become accustomed to always relocating, it becomes even harder to transition as they age. Young adolescents at this age will feel sad during this time because they will have to start over at a school and make new friends again. This adjustment isn’t as simple for teenagers especially when they don’t make any new friends. Military children face the obstacle of trying to adapt to a new
Another issue with the current state of the minimum wage in the United States is that it is unfair to the children that grow up in poverty because they did not even have a choice. Speaking from my own personal experiences, oftentimes these children have to watch their parent(s) work hard to support the family yet, they still struggle. Nothing felt worse than when a child who is well off simply says their parents work hard to be where they are as if your own parents don’t. The children who came from well-off families often times treat the children that are not well off extremely poorly by ridiculing the children about the clothes they wear, the toys they have, and etc. I remember one of the worst times of the year was Christmas time when you heard that your other classmates got everything they wanted and when you tell them the measly amount of things you got and they respond with “is that all.”
One of my favorite parts of Rutgers University is the ability to meet people that may live only 20 minutes away but have experiences that are a complete contrast to your own. During my first-year at Rutgers University I thought I knew what diversity was, I was raised in Jersey City, one of the most diverse cities in the nation, so when I came to Rutgers I did not expect to find more diversity. At Rutgers, I have had the opportunity to meet people that are not just diverse in culture but also in age and experience. Here I have met a non-traditional student who graduated almost a decade ago and came back to get a second degree after finding a new passion. I have had the opportunity to grow closer with intriguing people such as a triplet, a professional photographer, and a professor who is deaf but defied the odds
It is important to understand our diverse America because every day our population starts growing from people with different backgrounds. Our schools, jobs, and parks there will be people with different culture, religions, beliefs, or color skin. It’s important to understand our diversity because that’s what unites us as a great country accepting those despite where they’re from or color skin. As we grow, we want to teach the younger generation that it’s important to accept diversity and regardless of one's background we are all the same as humans. If you think about it America was made from descendant immigrants who have been here for generations and leaving their print of their culture every day as America accepting their background because
I am interested in diversity for my storybook. The theme “diversity” is important for children to live in diversity world. Diversity is better to learn as soon as possible from children because the rejection about differences is hard to change after the segregation is formed in mind. Most children are built the images about the different ethnicities by what they read, see and hear. Since people’s perspective is formed when they are little, how parents educate children is important.
