I will keep the principle in mind so that I can remember to avoid distractions that has nothing to do with what I am studying or doing. This will help me to accomplish everything I need to get done without being distracted by my phone or the T.V. Principle # 2: Applying the spacing effect will improve your learning and your
When Holden was talking about his parents, he said “I thought of maybe hanging up if my parents answered, but that wouldn't've worked, either. They'd know it was me. My mother always knows it's me. She's psychic.” This quote explains how Holden is too afraid to even talk to his parents nevermind go
I remember I was not allowed to hang out with certain kids if my mom saw them as the trouble maker types. I had a curfew to, to make sure I was not in any trouble. I think that is the thing with a lot of kids and getting into trouble. Because of no curfew from their parents. I feel that was a huge thing in keeping me safe outside.
Most of all I am thankful for my mother. She did not have to immigrate to the United States for me, which makes me appreciate that my future success would be because of her. I must say my experience being in a third world country was not just a vacation but it was a life changing stage that had turned me into a humble, generous, and thankful individual today. Do not get me wrong the first time I found out, I was going to a place like this I thought was God punishing me terribly. Given that, I had to get used to their living conditions, food and seeing what they do just to survive each day has taught me more than my characteristics of the person I am now.
“Boo Radley”, a game where they reenact the Radley family story. Jem, Dill, and Scout had made it a daily habit however Scout had no longer felt comfortable doing it anymore. Atticus also did not like the game and warned them to stop. Scout says “Atticus arrival home was the second reason I wanted to quit playing the game. The first reason happened that day as I rolled into the Radley yard..
First of all, when Huck first discovered Jim, he acknowledged “people would call [him] a low down Abolitionist and despise [him] for keeping mum” (Twain 32). Knowing the rest of his community would despise him created an inner argument in his head. Huck grew up without the luxury of a family and home to learn the manners and habits of a normal lifestyle. But the question is whether it really is a luxury or “normal”. He began to understand the distinction between his own rights and wrongs on his own and questioned “the use you learning to do right, when it’s troublesome to do right and aint no trouble to do wrong” (69).
Society today has lead us to think about many things in different ways. Your parents have always told you how you should never talk to strangers or pay attention to them, but aren't we all strangers? Growing up, the adults in my eyes were all somewhat strangers excluding my parents. My parents were the ones I was supposed to trust and teach me the ways of being a good person. My mom still talks about how as long as I become a good person she’ll be happy, but what does becoming a good person mean?
He was a thirteen year old boy who had to raise himself at some points since his father was not willing to do so. Huck is not educated due to the fact his father will not allow him to attend school. In the story the audience can also tell Huck doesn’t have much home training. In the book it states, “Pap always said it warn't no harm to borrow things if the reader was meaning to pay them back some time; but the widow said it warn't anything but a soft name for stealing, and no decent body would do it. Jim said he reckoned the widow was partly right and pap was partly right; so the best way would be for us to pick out two or three things from the list and say we wouldn't borrow them any more—then he reckoned it wouldn't be no harm to borrow the others.” This shows that Pap never taught Huck right from wrong so Huck thinks it’s okay to do these things.
The most important lesson that I have attained is that home is where your family is. After worrying so much about all of our material goods, we finally realized that it's not about the beds or dressers that make a home, it's about the people that surround you that make it home. The people that make you comfortable or bring out the best in you is where you call home. Over the past year, I had to call many different places 'home', but I have realized that those places were not my home at all if my family wasn't by my side. I believe God is always trying to teach us new lessons.
“Put yourself in that person's shoes” is what my mom would always tell me and constantly remind me, so would my dad. In to kill a mockingbird when atticus finch tells his children “you never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around in it.” This is one of the valuable lessons I have been taught by my parents throughout my life. Both my parents are key figures that resemble a character like Atticus finch from the novel To Kill A Mockingbird have the combine characteristic traits of atticus finch but from this quote I have learn to not judge others because I don't live there life. This lesson has taken years for me to learn and I am still learning from it today and It amazes me on how much that we don’t about the person that we are next
I used to have this grudges in my heart when everything go hard that would made me wanted to blame my parent. But I can’t because I was not raise to think that way. When I come to America, I was eleven years old and no one asked me if I wanted to come it just happen in a second. I was in a cold place with extended family that I never met before and that one person who raise me and made me feel secure was still back in the country. I had to lived months without her and next thing you know I adapted and convince myself they are doing this because the wanted the best for me.
Stitches “Tre`mon your friend is outside.” Hollered my mom “Ok!” I yelled back I opened the door and I told my friend. “Not today Brian I don’t feel like playing outside today.” I annoyingly groaned WAIT! Let me tell you some backstory about my “friend” Brian. This neighbor was to the left of our house and I was too young to see that he was crazy or something like that. I am not calling him crazy but he had an obsession to do crazy things.
I wasn 't that worried because they 're already 17 and 19 years old, but my parents were worried. At that moment everyone took out there phones and stated calling them. But with our luck there was no reception. While we were all calling, my dad said" Everyone stay here and I 'll go look for them". I don 't think that was the best idea, but I 'm not a parent so I wouldn 't know how that felt.
My feelings toward spankings is it wrong because some parents take it to far. No, when I have children I 'm not going to spank them. The reason why I would not spank my children because there are other methods of discipline that don 't involve you putting your hands own your child. Yes, I was spanked as a child and it also hurt. Getting spanked made me feel angry, but most of the times I got spanked because my old sister would tell my mom and grandmother I was hitting her.
