1. Health Video 2 a. I thought it was a very sad thing for the Long family to have lost their son to bullying. It should have never gone that far, perhaps the schools administrators could have done a better job of taking care of the situation. I strongly believe they did a poor job a handling the situation.
I know that because of experience. I hated foster care because it separated me from my family including my sisters. I really loved them but presently I don't care about them because I basically don’t know them anymore. That's what happens when you separate a family they end up not even knowing the person anymore they can end up to be a completely different
My extended family in Port Elizabeth has also been rather scarce because the last time we saw them was at my grandfather’s funeral. The one thing I have realized is the fact that my family, when they are faced with a situation, the suppress it and it always comes back to haunt them, as the child of the family is it not my place to be involved in this kind of conflict because I don’t know the other side of the story. If I had to choose a method for my family, it would be the Human validation process model, to map out all

My childhood was filled with violence and alcoholism, that is not I would want to see in my heaven. There are also people i would not want to remember, not because they hurt me although it could be a factor but it would be people that haven’t been active in my life. A people I wish I could give the world to is my mother and a couple of close friends. My mother has given me the things my father never did, she didn’t turn her back on me and cared for me even with the things she was going through. And I have a couple of close friends that have helped me in situations that have shaped me to be the person I am

For instance, in the process of learning English, I was very shy and refused to talk to English speakers. This fear not only delayed my process of adjusting to this new society, but it made me insecure, which resulted in a low academic performance in my second and third years of high school.

Following the death of a child, many parents become preoccupied with their own grief which affects their interactions with surviving children (Rossetto, 2015). Terry and Antonio are so caught up in their own grief that they are not paying proper attention to their other three children. The communication in this household is masked because they learned to change the subject whenever Sam’s name comes up. The children as well as the parents did not get the proper amount of time to grieve their loss if they are not allowed to talk about it. Open communication is important for children following the death of a sibling and siblings who were provided family support exhibited less problematic behaviors (Rossetto, 2015).

My parents may seem overprotective, but after making small yet bad decisions, I realize that these rules are set for our own protection and wellbeing. Recently, my parents and I went through some problems with relatives. Although it started from unimportant arguments, it turned into a serious issue and made me face things I didn’t think I would’ve had to. Those relatives were my godparents and I felt betrayed because I had trusted them my whole life and suddenly I was unable to have a regular conversation with them. Luckily, we were able to move out of the problem and even though we are going through financial struggles at the moment, we have a roof over our heads and we’re happy
