Most people in the world are different in many ways. In fact, some people say no human being on earth has the same fingerprints. On a similar topic, my parents are different in many ways also. Although my mother and father are different in the ways they act, live life, and discipline children, I love them both. First off, my mother and father differ in the ways they act. My mother is a very out spoken person, and love to gossip. I remember staying after church for hours because my mother would talk to almost everyone. My mother does not bite her tongue, and loves to speak her mind. If my mother felt a person were not trustworthy, she would let me know. On many occasions, my mother told me she did not think my friends were loyal. In spite of the tough love, she was a very friendly woman. My mother loves working with children and telling jokes. When I was …show more content…
Unlike my father, my mother is very strict. When I was a teenager, my mother would punish me for simple mistakes. I remember her spanking my brothers and me for not cleaning the dishes well. One the other hand my father do not believe in spanking children. As a child, I loved going to my father’s house for the weekend; he would let me get away with being disobedient. My father let me do whatever I wanted. Although my father let me do whatever I wanted to do, my mother is very controlling. If my mother said wash the dishes at six o’clock with only hot water, she meant it. She would make me and my brothers come in the house before the street light came on. My mother do not allow any children to be disrespectful towards her. Unlike my mother, my father would give a child a second chance. He would talk to children instead of punishing them. I remember being expelled from middle school; my father and I talked about the problem instead of disagreeing. On the other hand, my mother demands respect, and she spanked me for being expelled from

She then would deliver papers at one in the morning to help my father give my brother and I the best life we could have. She gave up her free time to pay for school, out of school activities, and Disney Vacations every year. I remember overhearing my mother crying because she was so
My old high school, Ramona High School, is described as a small campus. The current population of students is around two thousand. The school’s diversity is low, and about seventy percent of the student body consists of Hispanics in our school. The school ranks low in many categories; schools grades, and test scores are below average. People consider that our school is “ghetto”, when in reality it is not.
If I was told to do something, sometimes I would only obey if it was my dad telling me what to do; mom was really annoyed about that. Getting into my childhood years was about the same as my toddler years, I’m a daddy’s girl and always will be. Now my teenage years are different, as lots of stuff happened that made me think and mature
I chose my papaw as the person I wanted to interview. I picked him because he is the oldest person in my family and I played with him a lot when I was younger. The main reason though is I wanted to know what he was like when he was my age and if we would have been friends if I was twelve when he was. Technology is more advanced now than when he was twelve. Papaw had a transistor radio that got two stations, a rotary phone that had a party line, and a black and white T.V.
In the following comparative essay I will be discussing the literacy of practices used outside of school for pleasure by comparing and contrasting the reading, writing and digital literacy use of British Asian girls and Welsh girls and how this has influenced or affected their bicultural and bilingual identity using information from an article written by Susan Jones in 2006, as well as information I’ve gained from my lectures and own personal experience. Literacy practices includes everything you read and write. If you are reading and writing for pleasure you are choosing what you want to read or write in your free time. Fry suggests that “what we choose to read, or simply the books we have in our possession, are indices of the ways in which we want to be seen and the ways we see ourselves”(Fry, 1985, p.96). The Welsh girls are more comfortable with reading welsh as the texts are more contemporary in nature compared to the texts which the British-Asian girls read but they still choose to read texts that are English as there is not a large variety of magazines and novels available in Welsh.
The Grapes of Wrath portrays contemporary people 's actions during the long journey from Oklahoma to California. As Joad 's family travels from Oklahoma to California, their dreams and hopes are slowly crushed. When Joads struggle while facing difficulties, Ma plays a significant role: the citadel holding family all together in this hectic migration. Regardless of gender rules, Steinbeck demonstrates Ma as the real head of the household instead of Pa, driven by the responsibility and leadership within motherhood. Ma plays both mother and father figure which consequently might make Pa Joad as a useless character.
Thomas More’s work Utopia has been the main reference when examining a utopian society. This novel was written in 1561 and since that date has been translated into numerous languages, allowing others the privilege of embracing his ideals. The novel is a work of fiction that centers on an island society. More uses this island society to create his idea of a perfect society including the people’s way of life, their customs, relationships, values and work ethics. With this famous novel I will be examining Ernest Callenbach’s work Ecotopia and ultimately comparing and contrasting each authors utopian ideals.
Father’s punishments are such as not taking them out for ice cream or not giving them money for school. Mothers sometimes cannot help with their school homework because of all other work they have to do. Mothers find very hard sometime to take their children for school
I expected my parents to react differently than each other, but for the most part they did the same things. While playing my music instead of my dad’s, he told me to “play good stuff,” which mostly consists of songs that he likes more than I do anyway. When I tried this with my mom, she didn’t say anything. When I took their spots on the couch both of them just switched places. Same happened at the dinner table, neither of them thought it that big of a
Growing up, my mother was my primary caregiver. As a single mother, she was a strong believer in guiding my behavior with punishment when I did something that she did not like and rewarding me for my achievements and good behavior. For example, when I was younger, I was “whipped” because I waste an entire pitcher of Kool-Aid instead of asking for help, for I supposedly knew better. On the other hand, my mother rewarded me with money and family outings when I got all A’s in school. My mother showed me an excessive amount of love by attending school functions, giving me her attention, spending time with me, and satisfying my needs and wants.
For example, My Dad always told me and my brother to not play ball in the house. There was a day after school me and my brother were playing ball and we broke a window. My dad got mad and we were grounded and we had to work out of the debt of breaking the window. Now I’m the one telling my little sister, nieces, and nephew to not play ball in the house, and to go outside if they want to
This has helped her overcome so much heartbreak, from losing my dad, my sister, and my brother to her own health issues and through it all her faith has never been shaken. I look at my mother with nothing less than amazement. After my dad had his heart attack and could no longer work my mom never failed to provide for all her children, we didn't have a lot but we always had enough. This made me such a humble and grateful person, and I never take anything I have for granted.
