Throughout the novel, The Kite Runner, Hosseini was able to provide various ways in which cruelty had been exposed to each character. Cruelty can cause betrayal which later on creates guilt for many and satisfaction for others. Assef, a perpetrator, proved that it is possible to be cruel from childhood to adulthood. As well as Amir, a victim who had proved that it is possible to be cruel from childhood but transformed into a loyal and compassionate person throughout adulthood. Most children don’t really understand what cruelty is, the reason being is because they don’t know what they’re doing until they become old enough to realize it.
They may seem harmless at first but in the scenario of mine and many other families, expectations are a way of torturing young souls and minds. A way for parents to channel their ‘short-lived’ lives and desired outcomes through the young and naïve. Have you ever been impeded by expectations? Especially by your family? Well, I have… in fact, the simple phrase, “Family Expectations” sums up my traumatic and miserable life.
They feel that being in a gang offers a way to gain attention or status among their peers. Most likely these children do not have strong ties to their families, communities, or schools so they turn to gangs as their substitute family. This all leads back to the foundation that their families laid for them and for most it is a negative path. “Parents must strengthen children 's sense of purpose by setting expectations for their personal behavior. Expect your children to have respect for others, to obey authority, to be honest, and to do one 's best.
Many of the kids did not have the means to reach their goals. Even if seemed they had the means such as a supportive family there were still problems. The parents were in jail or alcoholics or even abused the children when they were younger. The children turned to innovation to reach their goals of the American Dream. How does this theory explain delinquency?
These kids, are just that kids who are stuck in a bad situation or mindset. The kids are victims of their circumstances but they are trying to find way to get out of their circumstances or are trying to be heard. The director uses things such as weather transitions, voice overs and overall structure to get the viewers emotionally invested in to these strangers’ lives. This helps to establish the subjects, but also make the large impact of knowing that there are many kids, like the ones shown, in the world that are struggling through life. The director is willing the viewer not to see these kids as the label of “bad kids”, but as human beings doing the best with what little they
Hey everyone read this so you can get a little bit smarter! This is going to talk about the victim side of child soldiers and if you don’t know what victim means then look it up, I had to. Thousands of children are being forced or had no choice, but to join the army. Should child soldiers be given amnesty, yes because they are being kidnapped and force or even dragged into joining the army. These child soldiers can’t really think at all and they just do what they are told without talking back.”At a young age, it is often easy to become intimidated and children often don’t think of the bigger picture, in other words the consequences of their actions”(Child Soldiers-Victims or Perpetrators).
Throughout the world, there are many organizations and rehabilitation programs to help former child soldiers recover from their PTSD and understand what acts they committed on the battlefield. Invisible Children, a non-profit organization that discusses the topic of child soldiers, stated, “Truth and Reconciliation Commissions (TTR) and Disarmament, Demobilisation and Rehabilitation programs (DDR) are a better way of helping child soldiers come to terms with what they did and re-integrate them into society.” (Invisible Children) While it is easy for humans to blame others, they usually do not ever try to help them heal their trauma and help them re-enter society. Instead, they throw them behind bars or torture them through physical pain, mental pain, or manual labor in concentration camps like America’s own Guantanamo Bay. Next, prosecutions risk being supportive towards the victim of a crime due to victor’s justice. In court, juries and judges tend to feel more empathy for the victim over the accused criminal which can distort the truth in cases.
This is particularly true for the children being trafficked when they are still in the process of mental development. Even though some victims may be rescued from their predators and recover from physical injuries, they may still live under shadow. For those who are sold by their families or deceived by their friends, it would be difficult to believe in someone else any more after the dreadful experience of being trafficked. “Trust is a word that victims of human trafficking may easily forget” (Sheikholeslami, 2011). With an absence of an element of trust, loneliness and insecurity will be sustained, and the victims may not allow social workers or psychologists to help, making the rehabilitation more
Why Suspending Misbehaving Students Is a Bad Idea Teachers may be surprised to find out that suspending kids from school isn’t working anymore and we need a better solution for punishing the students. This is because many students would rather be home than having to come to school. Many schools in the past have used various different punishments for disobedient students but the main one has been suspending them from school and activities. This way of dealing with the students has worked for many years of teaching because the students back then knew that they were lucky to even be going to school. In this new generation, kids don’t care about school as much and would rather be home anyway.
Child custody is a result of parents ending a marriage and then given parental rights and obligations toward their child (“Understanding the Difference”). Divorce itself has many hardships on the parents as well as the child. Though, custody is a whole other ball game. Child custody can have a positive and a negative outcome on children. Most people lean more towards the idea that
