For millennia, parents have made most of their decisions with the wellbeing of their child in mind, but not all of these choices are actually beneficial for the child. With one of the most debated topics being whether or not to vaccinate your child, many new parents find themselves at a loss, not knowing who or what to believe. This indecision puts the health of the child in jeopardy, putting these infants at risk of contracting harmful diseases and infect other, weaker children unable to be vaccinated. While some claim that vaccinating children is harmful towards both the physical and mental state of children, decades of vaccine use and research has proven quite the opposite, demonstrating that vaccines are safe, effective and help contribute
Although it has been considered a classic literature by several readers, the novel still remains in the top list of the banned books. The novel’s profanity, racial content, and its references to rape have provoked many readers to challenge the novel and lead to its removal from school classrooms and libraries. Many readers have disagreed to letting the novel be used in the classroom due to its vulgar language that is evident throughout the book. Expressions such as ‘nigger’ and ‘damn’ are used repeatedly which most find extremely offensive especially to young readers. The fact that the characters in the book are children and are the ones using the profane phrases has left many questioning the novel and not wanting their children to find such expressions as acceptable (Why Was it
I have always believed that jealousy is a strong feeling that can cause you to do bad things to others. However, that may not be true all the time, it just depends on how mature you are about the situation. For instance, the kids that lock Margot in the closet were lacking of maturity when they did that to Margot and Charlie’s co-workers in Flowers for Algernon were just not thinking clearly when they signed for the petition. Therefore, jealousy can be handled in a variety of ways and the way that jealousy was controlled in both of these stories were some
The majority of the people being accused and convicted of being witches were people who missed church, had poor luck which was a sign of Satan, and were outsiders. Missing church for any reason meant that they belonged to Satan. When a person was sick or were unlucky people thought it was a result of the devil and these people with lousy luck were the first ones to be accused. As more people were accused and more people started accusing though there were more people who didn’t have terrible luck and had good respective names that were being accused. It may’ve continued because people realized they could claim that a person they weren’t fond of was a witch.
Today I realize that the different countries have been using these horrible techniques on our children. Many people think that this technology is not available to us yet, but that is not true. Actually the U.K. opens up to these new techniques of designer babies in their country and actually funds for it. Many other countries disagree with these techniques but some
There is a significant difference between finding reasons and looking for excuses. The reasons why a child becomes a bully does not justify their misbehavior, but perhaps they will help us to understand it. On the part of the victim they do at their early age an insecure person, nervous, withdrawn, isolated, etc., many times the children no longer want to attend school for the same fear and in some extreme cases they arrive at the suicide. The damage lies primarily in their personal safety and low self-esteem to feel that their existence is worth little. This article pertains to my question regarding what is bullying because reading many articles I did not find a precise definition for
People get misunderstood on a daily basis. It can happen anywhere like at work, school, home, or even out on the streets.

Caroline several times that her father Atticus did not teach her to read and write but Miss.
The school environment is one that has been stressed to be a safe and enjoyable place to learn. However, for many individuals, that is not the case. Students around the world have very unique experiences at school, which can unfortunately become abhorrent. According to the Center of Disease Control (CDC), and average of 96 Americans lose their lives to gun violence each day (Gun Violence by the Numbers). There are several causes of death by gun violence, but one of the causes that have become a growing problem is school shootings.
Students can end up killing other students with the school weapon and that is a major problem parents are fearing. The subject of allowing teachers to have guns in school property has been a well known discussion. “Parents believe that having guns near their children is not safe” (Elliott) has been mentioned multiple times. Some parents state that it can be a bad influence for their children to be around weapons.
Introduction The topic of infant abuse and its social and emotional affects on infant development always seems to be ignored by many people. There have been articles written on criminals and the reason they became criminals is because of the abuse they experienced in their childhood. Not all criminals are victims of infant abuse but studies show that some of them most definitely are, and the most common kind of abuse is neglect. Knowing about infant abuse is important because it happens all around and if we know about it we can easily detect it instead of being ignorant about it.
During the flu season, many people are susceptible to catching the flu. It doesn’t help that some people still haven’t caught on to hygiene. Even worst, these people may have kids that have gained this poor hygiene habit and have to go to school. For the parents with proficient hygiene, sending their kids during the most susceptible time to school is hellish to even fathom. Anyone who has kids knows the most important thing in the world is their kids’ safety and health.
Even though immigrants might be running from something dangers, they can also be doing a lot worst. For example, the children do not have all the vaccines so they could be bring illnesses. What I mean is a lot of other countries do not have the money for vaccines. Also, if their country does have vaccines a lot of those people can’t afford them. This is bad because some people do not have all of these vaccines yet being around kids that Might have these illnesses.
The entire idea of bipolar disorder in children and ways to diagnose and treat it needs to be research and helped because the over medication of children should not be a solution to the problem. Children are rambunctious and everyone is different which does lead to a lot of the misdiagnosis that there are today, however as the years pass and the more common this problem seems to present itself, the more research that is being done. This will bring us closer to where we need to be in this
According to the article “How Tap Water Became Toxic in Flint, Michigan,” written by Sara Ganim and Linh Tran, the residents of Flint, Michigan highly disapproved of the new water source. Around 2 years ago, the city of Flint was forced to switch their water supply from Lake Huron to a more local source, Flint River. Before, this was not a big problem to the residents of Flint because they were told that the water they were drinking was harmless. However, people began to doubt that the water they were drinking was safe because it looked like sewage. Over time, new evidence began to arise claiming that the water contained massive amounts of lead and iron.
