My pivotal person is my mother because of the strength she has built into me, pushing me out of my comfort zone making me the social person I am today, and always supporting making me the best version of myself possible. First, my mother 's role in my life is significant to me because she taught and demonstrated to me at a young age how to be the strong woman I am today. One lesson she instilled into me was to
The one person who always told me I can do whatever I wanted in life was my mom. My mom was my number one supporter, and always told everyone how excited she was for me to fulfill my dreams of becoming a nurse. My mom would always tell me “Sam all your dreams can come true if you just believe in your self”. The days I questioned myself, and thought to myself is nursing really for me, I always thought of those exact
My Mima says that she loved being a mom, but being a grandma was sometimes even better. Over the past twenty-one years my Mima has become a grandmother to nine grandchildren; Shelby, Raegan, Jed, Jilian, Samantha, Samuel, Jake, Felicity, and Kylie. Her grandkids span from the ages of twenty-one to two. A lot of her time since she has retired has been spent taking care of her grandchildren. She likes to take them to do many different things.
She sat high goals for her life. Everyone who knew her noticed her hard work ethic. The pastor of her church, father Jambren Kovin, kept her encouraged and influenced her as much as he could. As a young lady she accompanied her mother on trips to visit the elderly, the sick and the poor. Due to the death of her father her ability to help others was more challenging.
She must show her that she didn’t need to worry anymore.”(p163) Based on this quote, I can tell that she knew she had to be strong and her Mom’s sickness didn’t make her more sad than she already was, it motivated her to be strong for her mom and whatever was coming up. She wanted to repay it to her mom for always being there and helping her in whatever she was going through. Esperanza became more and more stronger as she faced more and more problems. She was a scared girl who used to be afraid, but now she’s a lot braver. All these incidents gave her a message, that she was stronger than she knew she was.
Women have always been expected to be a certain way in many areas, in politics, religion, and just an ordinary day living life, throughout the years ' women have fought and influenced these areas in many ways and have made society today comfortable for women of future generations. Due to this women were forced to follow the status quo of being a servant to her husband and family. She was confined to the home with the traditional role of being a mother and wife. After she married she had given up any life once dreamed of as well as any career she wished to pursue. Devoting their time to tending to their families, doing chores around the house and preparing meals, was the life of women in the 1900’s.
An important and valuable life lesson that I learned is to be thankful and appreciate for those that are always around. It is very true when they say that we do not appreciate what we have until its gone and there are some moments in life that you miss someone so much that you wish you can just teleport them next to you and cherish their presence. This life lesson did not kick in until my best friend Alyssa moved away. Alyssa was like my sister and she basically raised me and watched me grow up. She took care of me like if she was my older sibling and she was always there when my parents were not around because they were too busy either working or just away from home.
We were both given unconditional love and we still get all that from my parents, we are in our mid and late forties. My sister and I grew up to be good people, hard working woman, which we learned from our parents and surrounding families. But I must say that the one thing I could have done without was all their fighting and although my mother denies it, there was domestic abuse which in some way affected us or at least me. There should be no domestic violence; no physical or verbal or mental abuse to have a functional healthy family. In some way, I feel that part of my childhood made me dysfunctional at least during my first marriage.
The person I chose to shadow is my mother, Donna Isaacs. Donna is the type of person who will tell people how it is; we share almost everything with each other. Donna plays a lead role in my life, so I thought to myself "Who would be a better choice?" Donna is a strong, independent, and caring woman. She teaches me life lessons that are actually important and relevant to society.
Introduction Growing up I always heard my mother jokingly say, “I’m a good daycare worker because I’m such a good mom, or maybe it’s the other way around.” My mother swore that the things that she learned from working at the daycare changed how she chose to raise her kids. From what I’ve heard of how my older brothers were raised, years before my mother was a daycare workers, she was right. This one case seemed to be true, but I wanted to explore how other people thought their occupations affected their parenting. How people should discipline their kids, or who should take care of them after school, or even how much time you should spend with them has been the focus of family sociology and politics for decades. These social scientists, however,
