Courage Sunni Knapp Courage isn 't going along with what other people think, its about fighting for what you believe. Throughout the book Roll of Thunder Hear my Cry, this 9-year-old wild child with the name of Cassie Logan keeps catching my eye. She always stands up for what she believes and even if she knows she 's wrong, she still fights for it.

Parenting has been a long practice that desires and demands unconditional sacrifices. Sacrifice is something that makes motherhood worthwhile. The mother-child relation- ship can be a standout amongst the most convoluted, and fulfilling, of all connections. Women are fuel by self-sacrifice and guilt - but everyone is the better for it. Their youngsters, who feel adored; whatever is left of us, who are saved disagreeable expe- riences with adolescents raised without affection or warmth; and mothers most impor- tantly.

Such helpfulness was found in her, —so much power to do, and power to sympathize, —that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman 's strength.” (13.3) Instead of letting this letter define her mistake she took it upon herself to remain strong and keep her head high, not only for her but for her daughter. By turning her head away from the negativity and making sure she set an example of resilience, Pearl would grow up to understand the large strength it took for her mother to stand
People should always try new things, but people are too afraid to try it because they are scared. But, I am here to tell you two stories that will teach you how you always try new things.

Often times they do not consider the risks they are taking when signing their child up for pageants. According to Martina M. Cartwright, many pageant parents exhibit “princess by proxy.” This occurs when adults are primarily driven by the social or financial gains earned by their child’s accomplishments, regardless of potential risks for the child. They want their child to be the best, because it makes them feel better about themselves
“Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is ask for help.” - C. Connors This quote is used in the novel Fish in a Tree by Lynda Mullaly Hunt. This novel is about a girl named Ally Nickerson who learns that some people have differences for a reason and not all differences are bad. Ally struggles to fit in and make friends at her new school, and to top it all off she is picked on because people think her differences make her an outsider. With the help of Mr. Daniels Ally feels like she can accomplish anything because she turned the things she believed to be impossible into things she knew were possible. The major parts of this novel were chapters 21, 23, and 29 because these chapters reflect what Ally feels during some major events throughout the novel.
The political environment was equally unpleasing to her, and this explains why she eventually opted to be a rebel.

Kirksey said her religious beliefs made her approval of the change impossible, and she felt that she had a duty to protect the girl from possible bullying and help dozens of other children and their parents, who she said deserved to be told about the change. She said those beliefs cost her a job. One day, she wanted to be a girl, the next day she wanted to be a boy,” Kirksey told FOX26. “The other kids are confused as well, calling her a boy and she would start screaming, ‘I’m not a boy!’” “I don’t think we should be talking to other people’s children who are under the age of 18 about being transgender,” she said.

The most concerning aspects of this show is that, at such a young age, children are being taught to live up to the “perfect” status. Airing this show on TV is merely an effort to teach the viewer how to be a successful girl, rather than a successful person. It is consistently seen through every episode, breakdowns of young girls who are not achieving the judge’s “perfect” look. TLC released an episode containing a 3-year-old dressing up as a prostitute from the movie Pretty Women (Henson). If the media is advertising these concepts and parents are supporting them, it only further influences women to act this way, since they were led to believe that it was the norm.
