When i started school i was acting up and never wanted to do any work or homework and my grandmother had to come to the school everyday. I never really cared about reading and writing because i wasn't really good at it, so i never really worked on reading and writing. My grandmother signed me up to a online program called Hooked on Phonics to help me read and write, but i never paid attention to it and skipped all the lesson because it was boring. When i was young i felt like i was on my own because my mother was away and my father was somewhere and my grandmother had all her grandchildren she took care of, so nobody took the time to teach me how to read and write. I felt like i didn't need to learn how to read and write because nobody told me or showed me how important reading and write and learn how to articulate.

Like I said before nobody deserve to be treated like this or to be neglected medical care. They are just slowly killing off this beautiful culture. This book saddened me very much. It did though, open my eyes to just how poorly these students where treated. You cannot take away somebody’s family and beliefs.

Programs were developed and medications were advised, yet Adam refused to participate in those therapies and he refused to take the recommended
Now and again it would be stories that were passed on from her adolescence and different times she would get a book, for example, the three little pigs and a plenty of other youngsters ' books, to read loudly as I nodded off. Since I reflect upon it, there was almost always a good to the story, whether it was trustworthiness, dependability, or obligation. There was always a decent value to take from the story, which has directly produced results in the individual that I see myself as to be today. As I became older, the books got more immersed, particularly when I went to class. From the very first day I ever went to class, till the last day of high school, and now into college there has not been one day that I haven 't needed to read something.
Maria’s mother would not buy her any toy she wanted but would buy her any book she wanted.” (Padian) This led to Maria’s big imagination.

I used to beg my parents to let me quit the team. They could see how miserable I was and for being the kind of crazy parents they were, they heavily considered letting me. But I stuck it out for the rest of the season, sitting away from the girls on the benches and during breaks in-between games because I had officially given up. I didn’t have to convince my parents to not make me try out for the Dew the next season. They had seen that coming a mile away and my dad looked up different teams in the Northwest Indiana area without me having to say a word to him about it.
Then the directors of the school destroy his work of art because it was not kid friendly, even though they were the ones to put it into the school curriculum. I think the school’s solution to the problem was not good. Like what it says in paragraph 3 in I am real where it says, “I want you to know, too, that my publisher and I have done absolutely nothing to exploit the disgusting news from Drake.” Even when the school burned the book he said that he did not exploit them like he mentions in this quote. I think he knew his book was not for children, but what I think he really is mad about is his reputation. Its like someone making an R rated movie for a adults then a kid sneaks in watches it and complains to his parents and the parents slandering the movie
