I’m the first generation of my family to be Mexican -American, but I have been introduced to the Mexican culture since I was born. I appreciate the difficulties my parents have faced to make me the person that I am today even though I wasn’t born in Mexico my parents have taught me the language and the culture which I’m so proud of being part of. For others being Hispanic is actually being born in any Latin American countries which is not true at all. Being Hispanic is much more than my cultural background it actually describes how much I appreciate my culture and how I get to experience things other people don’t. I fit into the Hispanic community through the experiencing the culture first hand ,participating in traditions and planning to include my culture in my future.
Several weeks ago, there was a national conversation about sexual harassment and assault with the #notokay moment. I spent some time reflecting on the experiences I 'd had in high school, college and as a young woman. My oldest daughter, who is in seventh grade, and I spoke about my experiences. I wanted her to know that she doesn 't need to accept being treated as prey and that she would be doing these boys a favor by informing a teacher or administrator if a boy touches her or makes lewd comments or otherwise harasses her. My thought was that some of these boys may have a man as a role model who is setting a poor example when it comes to respecting the dignity of others, and that early education/intervention could help the boys. Is this

What is a social problem? What does it mean to develop a sociological imagination to study social problems?
I come from an authentic Hispanic family, who is traditional in plenty distinct aspects. We treasure all the memories that have occurred to all of us and we laugh about the embarrassing moments we all had. We hold traditional customs and we accept new traditions as well. All of us are over protective of each and every family member, meaning that if anyone in the family has a problem we will not stop until it is fixed. To every family member, family is always first.
Growing up in a hispanic home is a blessing. Having spanish as my first language then later on, when entering school, came english. Being fluent in both spanish and english comes in handy more times than not. For myself, and for those of my family members that only speak spanish. That is one of my motivations to keep learning spanish and earn the biliteracy seal. My entire family of nine, with me being the youngest, was born in Mexico and our primary language is spanish. The sister that was born before me and I are the only ones in our family that can speak and understand both languages, but I am the most fluent in both languages. Going to the store or even filling out papers that came in the mail was a hassle for my family. Being able to translate
Over the past few months, the class has been discussing typical and atypical language development and the assessment and intervention of children with language delay or disorder. In line with this, the students were asked to observe children aged 0-12 years old with language problems for 2 hours. For this requirement, I went to a therapy center situated in Quezon City last November 16, from ten (10) A.M. to twelve (12) N.N. The center has multiple rooms that are used for speech therapy and occupational therapy. During my observation, two speech pathologists and two children with language disorder were sharing one speech therapy room.
The type of food that we eat is influenced by the countries and people that were once settled down in the land that we live on. Those from the past generation help influenced the way that we live and the food that we eat. Each region has their very own dishes of food that represent their uniqueness and own touch of their country.
The fourth finding I found was that even though Pre-K environments have an emphasis on group activities there was often a designated area in the classroom where children could go and be alone and self-reflect. However, these spaces were used differently throughout the three programs. In one program children went to what they called the “cool down chair” when they misbehaved. In this particular program usually a talkative child who may have been disruptive would have to go to the chair and think about what he or she did wrong. The chair was located in a corner where there were crayons and other play items that the child was allowed to use, but mainly it was a sort of punishment. Being excluded from the group signified to them that the way
According to developmental psychology a person at any age is at a certain stage of cognitive, moral, psychosocial, and physical development. This development is measured by different types of thinking, mental capacity for tasks, physical strength, and reasoning for following rules. Development is easily seen in children. Naturalistic observation is the one of the easiest method to see these developments in children. This is the observation technique I used, while watching a five year old male at Kindercare Daycare at 3:30 on a Friday. I did my observation after the children had a recess period and came inside for a snack and play time. While observing the male child it was obvious to see where he was in cognitive, moral, psychosocial, and physical development.
Many people have a strong sense of Nationalism in the Hispanic community. They are a proud culture with a very traditional base and beliefs. The Hispanic people like to be identified by the region that they are from and not just generalized. For instance Mexicans are from Mexico while people from Argentina are Argentinian and not just group as “Mexican”.

My family comes from a Hispanic heritage. My dad is from Monterrey and my mom is from Houston. Even though I am from here I get to celebrate both traditions from both sides of my family. Most of my family members are from Mexico. In our house we speak both Spanish and English. I interviewed both of my parents about our heritage and I realized that there are many traditions and customs that are very interesting and are celebrated throughout the year. Belowyou will read about interesting traditions and customs as well as what my family and I are interested in.
The word “tradition” derives from Latin, traditio: the noun from the verb tradere or traderer, which means to transmit, hand over or give for safe keeping. Traditions have existed since the dawn of time. Traditions help to maintain consistency in our lives. They teach us morals and give us reasons to believe that there will always be good in the world. Traditions, good or bad teach us hard life lessons. Traditions are good, they bring about positive change, keep us grounded and help us grow.
