The short story "Too many Tamales" by Gary Soto describes the story of a girl who wants to wear her mom 's ring but thinks that it got dropped into the tamales, but her mom actually wore it the whole time. Both stories tell kids that they should not keep secrets and tell the truth instead. The book "The Bloody Souvenir" tells kids that they should tell an adult/guardian immediately before something gets worse. In the story, the narrator did not want to tell his mom what happened about his wart, so he tried to hide it up. But it gets worse and the narrator still did not want to tell his mom.
I laid on the couch and wouldn’t talk, so my mom made me a hot pocket to make me feel better. I wasn’t hungry. That was the day I started experiencing depression. After two days I started back eating like normal and moving some, but life had gotten frustrating because I was not able to
Esther noticed the patient who threatens the nurse of jumping off the building. The nurse told Esther that the windows are barred, therefore no one could actually jump off the building. The nurse’s “assurance” was absolutely not therapeutic at all. The nurse told Esther that “Don’t worry, their first time everybody’s scared to death.” It is very frustrating to know that a nurse would do tell her patient not to worry about anything. This is called false reassurance.

She kept teasing me, pushing me, and I would tell her to stop but it wasn’t helping. She punched me multiple times until I was bleeding, and had a black eye.

Anyways, that is what I’m doing now, getting ready for another dreadful day of school. I used to get my mom to help me pick out clothes when I was first diagnosed with color blindness,
For the sixth week of the abstinence exercise, I was feeling much better about continuing to abstain from sugar since the previous week had been successful. Despite my birthday bringing much temptation to give into cakes and other desserts, I was able to stick to my healthy diet of not eating processed sugar.

They were very surprised by this, and even tried to convince me otherwise, but I was able to assertively tell them I was sticking to my commitment.
