This means that children need discipline sometimes, and the Hadley parents find themselves not being able to follow through with it. Since the children are rarely chastised, they don’t show respect for their parents because they infrequently get in trouble for their actions. In addition, when George started to turn off all of the technology sources throughout the house, Peter and Wendy begged their mother to let them have a couple more minutes in the nursery. She reported back to George and he said, “’All right—alright, if they’ll shut up. One minute mind you and then off forever’” (16).
In a community that values Sameness, there is no room for individuality, which is an important theme in The Giver. In Jonas’s community, being your own person is frowned upon. The Chief Elder says at the Ceremony of Twelve, “You Elevens have spent all your years till now learning to fit in, to standardize your behavior, to curb any impulse that might set you apart from the group.” It is only in their Assignments that their differences are acknowledged and honored (Anderson 37). Children do not celebrate individual birthdays, they do not even know their actual birthdays; instead, they turn the next age with their group mates at the December Ceremonies. When The Giver gives Jonas the memory of a birthday party, “with one child singled out and celebrated on his day,” Jonas comes to understand “the joy of being an individual, special and unique and proud”.
Author Larry Cublin believes that students in high school should know about this topic “ Why everyone shouldn’t go to college” due to the fact that students don’t know how many years they want to go to college, hot they are going to pay for college, and they realize college is not for them. They way that I see it is that everyone may not want to go to college because they already have a mindset on what they want to do. For instance, most students think they know what they want and what to do but they don’t realize that there are alternatives like taking a vocational program that is only two years which is less time to waste in college and you are able to work quicker after those two years, but the downfall is that you won’t get paid much
Katherine Paterson wrote the book to try to make sense out of a tragedy that seemed senseless!! So this is how it all went down.. a short overview of the story.. Jess Aarons is an eleven-year-old boy, who is quite insecure in his identity. He has a hard family life. He likes to draw and to run, and is kind of lonely; he 's out-of-place in his family and the only person he really gets along with is his little sister May Belle. He dreams of being the fastest boy in the fifth grade, hoping that that he will get a chance to stand in the spotlight among his five sisters, which might win him the attention of his preoccupied father..
It's just curiosity. But parents telling them is not a good idea. Some parents assume that because the child has experienced many of the same events the parent has in that household the child probably knows why the parents had to divorce. Even so, the parent has to find a way to heal the scar that the child has instead of leaving it as it is just because the parents experienced the same thing. Other parents want to protect their children from experiencing or even knowing about unhappy or unpleasant events so they decide to tell them very little about the actual reasons for the divorce.
In this course, various motherhood concepts were represented in different picture book. Motherhood is a state when the mother takes care of her children and raises them with care and love. The cognitive behavior of parents affects children in either negative or positive manner (Joan E., G, Tanya, D., 2014). Children are the mirror of their parents as they reflect them in every way. Parents make their children opt for things that they like and restrict them from things they dislike.
But, that encourages my next point about parents. Since it is your parent’s personality, they should see you going in the defective path. If you are slacking in school or at home; they should correct you and tell you not to be like them and to excel and adjust your performance. Not only should they just talk to you, they should fix their personalities also. For example, maybe they are always late to work or they curse too much, though these are negligible traits, they demonstrate an misguides on the child ,who will start to think this behavior is acceptable and start to pick up on it.
Most parents do not make you leave the school you have grown to love so dearly. Most parents will do anything to make their child happy. Considering my parents are not like this, they’re making me switch schools at the beginning of my seventh year. I am not happy about this decision or how they did not ask me if I would like to go to this school. They reply with short responses.
