Listening attentively and actually hearing what is being said and responding appropriately is key when building relationships as it shows that you are interested in what the child or young person is saying. Answering them appropriately is important and not judging them allows the child or young person to feel that they are being valued and that they are secure in what they’re saying to the adult. Positive body language is an essential principle in building relationships as it shows that you are interested and listening. The child or young person should always feel that what they are talking to you about will remain confidential.
The struggles to reach the American Dream are poverty, education, and language barriers. Poverty can cause struggles to reaching the American Dream due to the loss of money. Education that is not completed can also get in the way of the American Dream. Thirdly, if you are not able to the American language, it's difficult to even try to achieve the American Dream.
Ever since the beginning of time humans have made interpretations of how the world will appear and function in the future. Sometimes these interpretations can be correct, but can also be very incorrect at the same time. The period of time in Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is similar to today's society regarding the lack of social skills, and the growing addiction to technology, although some may say that technology is different today because it is an efficient way to access a broad amount of information.
I have never been the one to start fights or the one to get in trouble. I am always the one that is the one that mediator and try to persuade my friends to stay out of trouble. Being a villain in just a life that I am not used to. Though the one thing that I could say about me that relates to a villain is that I am misunderstood by many people. There are many villains that I believe that are misunderstood and it is the hero who is the actual evil one who destroys the villain for being misunderstood. Every villain has a reason for being who they are. One of the villains that has been misunderstood is the Joker from The Dark Knight. He may not have been telling the truth about how he got the scars, but it is quite obvious that he has a scarring childhood that made him
The dictionary describes empathy as the ability to understand and share the feelings of another. But, you can’t look up how to feel empathy for someone. I believe that your experiences in life determine that. In To Kill a Mockingbird, (TKM), The kids, Scout and Jem each learn empathy through the events in the story. In the beginning, Atticus teaches them what the definition of empathy is, but they do not feel it until later in the book. This novel also shows us people that are, and are not empathetic to things. It is the main example the children have to learn themselves.
Sympathy versus Empathy. It is easy to be sympathetic towards others, but the skill to be empathetic is difficult to acquire and takes daily practice and mindfulness. Empathy is a skill set that helps understand someone else 's emotions and experiences.
Interpersonal Skills are the skills that we use in our everyday life which is also known as people skills. It is because this skill is related to the way you communicate and interact with the people around you on a day to day basis.
1. Please explain one or two of those experiences. Was it for class? For work? For a family occasion? What were the circumstances surrounding the event?
My encounter with Denis Hopovac was a unique one. Denis is a Bosnian man, who is in his early 30s. I have been observing him for some weeks during our weekly workshops, and this week I intended to introduce myself and know more about his experiences as a Bosnian man in the United States. During my observations, I saw that Denis has a friendly personality; however, he is a closed box when it comes to sharing things that he has gone through. So, I thought that I can get along with him if I can find some common values to talk about and share my experiences to comfort him for opening up. Furthermore, from his gentle way of explaining things, optimistic look for the future, and polite behaviors during the time I have observed him, I deduced that
We all have experienced the terrible days of eating school lunches. Five days a week you sit in a room full of loud and obnoxious kids as you try and enjoy the not so fantastic food that is served to you. When I was in grade school we were given this meal that I absolutely loved out of the rest and it was called Stromboli. It was made of bread, ham, cheese, and a delightful marinara sauce. It was the meal I always looked forward to each month. After a few years though, they had to eliminate Stromboli from our school lunches. I was very disappointed until this year, I noticed on the school lunch menu they were back! I was thrilled. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on the flavorful dish. After being patient and waiting, the day had finally arrived
Furthermore, I believe that one who has quality relationships can develop better communication skills. Without any close relationships, it is my understanding that starting a conversation can be difficult. This does not mean that one who does not have a valuable relationship cannot communicate with others, but rather, it is more comfortable for an individual to communicate with someone close to himself or herself and these skills can be applied to help him or her communicate better with others. It is my understanding that even if one has good social skills, interactions with friends or family will help him or her develop better listening skills, and become more attentive as to what is occurring in the world around this individual. I know,
“A dream doesn’t become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination and hard work.” Quoted by Colin Powell, a retired four-star general for the United States Army, this quote means that your dreams do not just happen because you want them to. You must work hard in order to achieve your life goals. The American Dream is the goal to have a family and sturdy job. Students can obtain this dream through working hard in school and on their standardized tests. Also going to college will substantially increase student’s success rate. If students develop habits such as the ones found in the non-fiction piece 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens by Sean Covey, they will find that prioritizing their life will become easier. As a sophomore in high
In the modern culture and society, humans often take silence as something awkward and to be avoided at all costs. It is almost like every American has been brought up learning that quiet spaces in conversations are taboo and that no one enjoys an individual who cannot hold a conversation. The issue with this concept is that people are talking way too often and the words coming out of their mouth more often than not, hold absolutely no merit. In James Owen’s book Cowboy Ethics, he describes ten principles to live by and the most significant one on the list is “Talk Less and Say More”. There are a vast amount of things that can be taught through this principle that are often overlooked and unappreciated.
Code switching is a switch in the way you speak or the language you speak, Sometimes codes switching is formal or in formal speech. Code switching is something you do around your friends, family, school, and work. It is something very important because it helps with every conversation you may have at school, home or work. Schools make this a requirement to code switch because it helps to improve your communication with others, which is good for a future job interview and speaking with law enforcements.
Stoicism is an ancient philosophy founded in Athens, by Zeno of Citium, in the early 3rd century B.C. Although Stoic philosophers considered various subjects, principal teachings included how to lead a fulfilling and happy life and how to become better human beings. Up until today, the principles of Stoicism can be considered amongst the most applicable and realistic way of life for entrepreneurs, writers, and artists alike, to help them withstand tough times, and actually benefit from them.
