Mrs. Mallard wanted the same opportunities as her husband and other men had, which was to be able to work, get an education etc. Mrs. Mallard felt that she was trapped in her marriage meaning she wasn’t independent.

Overcoming adversity has helped me grow into a responsible young adult through the trials I have faced. Growing up, I was raised by my mother and older sister. I have watched my mother overcome the difficulties of being a single mother without support. She would work tirelessly to afford our small apartment. Before their divorce, my father had abused her both mentally and physically, leaving her with emotional and financial scars.
Author Jamie Pastor Bolnick recollects thinking, “the baby was sick, or Robert was drunk or how my mom was going to pay the rent this month… I used to be an honor student, but my grades were shot to hell because all I’ve been missing” (Bolnick 27). The most influential people in a child’s life is usually their family. Derek Steele followed in the same footsteps as his parents. An excerpt from his book describing his daily life reads, “I’m sure my mom wouldn’t want anyone to know we got high together and my dad was the epitome of self-absorbed” (Steele 35). His relationship with his sister wasn’t very much different where, “he liked hanging out with his sister...a very dysfunctional relationship… brought ecstasy over to her and David, and we all got high together” (Steele 44).
My life is not easy, but if I have my family with me everything is possible. The second possible barrier to my education is my economic status. Like I mentioned before my father died, so I depend only on my mother and myself, and college is not cheap. I am in the process of becoming a permanent resident of the United States, but until then I do not have access to FAFSA and other type of scholarships, so I have to pay college all by myself.
My mother by herself barley makes enough money to raise us, she is a single mother who raises four children along with taking care of my grandmother. When I lost one parent the other one had to make up for the missing income. My mother gets help from the state to raise us until we are eighteen, but that money stops when we go to college. Thus my mom will continue to help me with my financial problems during college. Although, most of my money for college will come from scholarships and financial aid.
Same as any other regular students who decided to go to college and committed to excellence, I also wish for a bright future. However, there are many obstacles along the way. Before I came to America, I had never thought about college because my family could not afford for me to attend. My dad passed away when I was eight years old, and my mom has been struggling in supporting the family. It became worse around the year of 2006-2007 when my mom’s business had a major financial difficulty.
Many people in today’s society with low income wonder how they would feed their children, pregnant women who cannot afford formula for their baby, and a decent place to stay. Today, there are poor mother’s in the society who worry about is there baby going to have formula, some even worry about if they have all the information to meet the standard to get the free program. Some people today with low income cannot afford a place to stay or do not have enough money to pay high rent every month. Some wonder if they can apply for Section 8 housing program would they be accepted and receive the free benefit. Welfare is a great program that offers different program the help low income people.
I soon realized I’ll be away from home often, and that’s not something I’d be able to do in life. I then realized that I didn’t know what I wanted to do after all, even after reaching my senior year. I’ve decided that I want to study nursing due to having to struggle with my family’s health. I’ve seen my father live in a nursing home on two separate occasions and noticed that some workers are very impolite and impatient. This helped me reach the conclusion that I want to care for people because there are some who do very unkindly, and it’s a way to become financially stable.
I see teen moms who don’t know the basic skills of living, how to work the laundry or even cook simple rice. How do we expect some new parents to take care of kids when they can’t even take care of themselves. Raising a child is a huge responsibility and it is our job to make sure these kids are well taken care of. I have spoken to many new moms ranging from the ages 17-27 years old, all of these moms became stressed and overwhelmed with the new struggles they had to encounter when having a newborn.
Family dissolution and eventual reconstruction is not an uncommon experience in the United States. Focusing specifically on a child’s ability to adjust positively to having a stepparent could assist family life educators to develop ways that potentially make this transition easier for children and adults who struggle with this shift. The following is an overview of a blended family whose members all had different perspectives on how they viewed being involved in a blended family dynamic. The purpose of this in-depth look at a blended family is to further explore the relationships between stepparents and stepchildren and the correlation, if any, to a child’s ability to have a positive reaction to adjusting to a new family dynamic.
Siblings have a bond that ties them to one another for their whole lives, whether they live together or hundred miles apart. There are some situations though that split up a sibling relationship like divorce or foster care. Foster care can be the glue to hold the children's future together, but it is the knife that cuts siblings apart. The splitting of siblings especially in foster care can be traumatic and detrimental to those children. Due to regulations of age or number of children allowed in a foster home, siblings must be split up which can cause behavioral, psychological, relationship issues with one or all of the siblings.
