However, what I appreciate the most is those very differences in our cultures because it great opportunity for me and a friend to learn from one another. I think that the diversity has only brighten my experience here at Rutgers and made conversations
Interviewing a friend did take off the stress of making mistakes and we had a great time. The whole interview went well aside from taking too long to take notes. The interview was interesting for both Mario and I. We thought that it made us aware about the struggles that we had to go through and at the end we realized the positive impact that migrating to America has made on our lives. However, we both feel that our experiences were not as difficult as how it was portrayed in the books and movies about the challenges that immigrants face.
When Jem and Scout’s Aunt Alexandra was thinking about moving in with the Finch’s, so they have a woman figure in their life, Atticus says to Scout, ‘’’How’d you like her to come live with us?’’’ (pg 128). This shows he is a good father because he cares about the opinion of his daughter. He honours and respects what she has to say. He is being fair because he knows the type of relationship Scout and her Aunt Alexandra have. He wants to make sure that whatever happens is fair and right and that she is okay with whatever happens.
An example of this was being abused verbally, or even getting outed (if they did not want others to know right away). Oppositely, others have had positive experiences, which has made their work life easier. Co-workers were open and friendly to their changes and offered helpful feedback to maintain an easy lifestyle while transitioning. There was no judgement which made them feel accepted and at ease. This study connects to Schilts book because it shows how transgender inequality is a huge issue.
Another words, just like when you’re a young child, mommy goes in for a haircut, and her young daughter what’s to receive the same treatment while getting her hair done too. Boys are no different either, for they want the same experience and values as their brothers, fathers; and grandfathers such as following in their footsteps while becoming just like them. “According to cognitive development theory, children use cues to evaluate the behavior of others as either gender appropriate( “good”) or gender inappropriate (“bad”) (Jones, ASID, IIDA, IDEC and Phyllis Sloan Allen, 2009, pg. 114). Meaning children adapt to the changes to which they go though (adolescence), in order to be accepted by their gender stereotypes in the social world to which they exist.
Even though the orphans that you help don't know me, they would be more comfortable talking to me than a white race person. An additional characteristic of mine that could help you is my brainstorming. I said it in my second paragraph, I am able to come up with great ideas and I can think big but also think small. I can reflect on a situation and find a good idea to help that situation. I am also sociable with other people so I could with just about anyone.
At first I was shy, but everyone was so friendly I found it easier and easier to spend some time and simply talk to people. One boy I met even called me his brother, which really impacted how I was starting to feel around people. By the end of the trip, I was eager to meet new people and just talk to them about anything. I learned a lot about myself and the trip made me realize I really enjoyed socializing and could overcome my awkwardness if I kept putting myself out there.
Children who are raised by authoritative parents tend to become more independent, understanding as well as well behaved. According to research, it has been suggested that a child growing up under an authoritative parent makes a difference (Fletcher et al 1999). Authoritative parents never let their children get away with bad behavior; they expect their children to behave responsibly by simply taking a firm stand. Some researchers sum it up this way “Authoritative parents are both highly responsive and very demanding” (Maccoby and Martin 1983). Baumrind (1967, 1971) found children of authoritative parents to be self-reliant, self-controlled and soundly competent.
Please understand I do not take my SES, ethnicity, orientation or gender for granted; nor do I think they lack an influence on why I am doing social work. However, it was more of the experiences with others that made me join this field than what has happened in my own life. These lens that have been created for me are key and second nature. Much like schemas, they organize my thoughts and give me insight to various situations. They have caused joy, frustration, anger and oppression; yet I am entirely grateful for them and how they affect my social
I value life on a completely different level. It’s the little things that Americans take for granted like electricity, education and honestly our amount of freedom. Having an inside look on another culture outside of your own does just what I expected it would, it opens you up to learning and accepting new things that you aren’t aware of. This assignment gave me the ability to step into an outgroup and feels as if it had once been my in-group. I learned a lot and I’m positive from now on I will be sensitive to other cultures and their
