Introduction The observation took place in Panera Bread on October 7, 2015. It lasted one hour, and went from 5:15 PM to 6:15 PM. Five adolescents were observed, within the confines of 3 separate social bubbles. My focus was divided between on a group of 3 white females, aged around 18-19, one black male, aged 17-19, and one white white female, aged 12-13. Due to the nature of the business, the environment was mainly composed of two forms of interaction, one being within the distinct groups that came in, the other being between a group and the employee’s of the business. There was also a small amount of exchanges between groups, but this form of interaction was minimal. Despite the public nature of the environment, the clear cut boundaries …show more content…
Positive communication was witnessed in the form of the two young girls that were happy to see one another, but it also appeared in a more negative light, such as the manager yelling at the employee. Noticeable in the interactions was the varying degrees of eye contact. The satisfying interactions seemed to contain more eye contact, apparent between the two girls, as well as when the studying group would communicate, and when the older woman asked for the chair. When the manager scolded the employee, the employee continued to face forward at the food station in front of him, while the manager spoke to his back. The employee maintained a slumped, dejected looking posture, while continuing to work. The paternal protection of the father with his daughter was evident as he held her close to him, placing his hands on her shoulders. Reflection The observations at the Panera Bread exemplified some of the major aspects of the adolescent experience. The employee’s struggles, while maintain his efforts to be successful, was intriguing when looked at as a failure that can be utilized to gain experience and knowledge. The practical application of the psychological concepts demonstrated the continuously evolving duties of the adolescent. The apparent disparity in responsibilities was evident with the different age groups, and showed the vast differences between people only a few years apart, embodying the chaotic and rapid nature of juvenile

The appeal of adulthood and independence reaches its apex in fervent children. However, Maria Mazziotti Gillan, poet of My Daughter at 14, Christmas Dance, 1981, conveys the paternal perspective of viewing one’s own kin experiencing the “real” world through her daughter’s first relationship. The Family of Little Feet, written by Sarah Cisneros, illuminates the negativities of young girl’s eagerness to physically develop in hope of acquiring attention from possible suitors. While both pieces of literature possess varying perspectives of epiphanies, Gillan and Cisneros divulge the significance of cherishing one’s youth, as the realities of maturity divest children of their innocence.

Analysis of “My Papa’s Waltz” by Theodore Roethke Since the genesis of the traditional family unit, parents play an immutable and paramount role in the nurturing of their children and successive progenies. Universally, in most societies, it is widely acknowledged that the father is the figurehead of the family unit. However, the role of the father is not cogently defined, especially in the contemporary society, and may vary from one family to another. On the one hand, there are fathers that act as the temporal providers to their children till they grow to adulthood.
To initiate this interaction, one student asks another for help in which the student asked can either accept or deny. If the student accepts to help, she explains the concept or helps in any way necessary to better her peer’s understanding of the material. It is expected that the student who asked for help gives his peer his undivided attention as he is requesting a service of another. After the explanation, the student who helped confirms with the student who needed help his understand of the material to ensure there was no misunderstanding.

In Kiss and Tell, Alain de Botton humorously describes a situation between tactless and socially oblivious parents and their uncomfortable adult daughter, Isabel, who is on a date with her new boyfriend. Using immaturity and a lack of etiquette in the actions of the characters, multiple examples of irony, and the anticipation of Isabel’s father’s actions which all ultimately lead to a comedic effect, de Botton produces a universal experience that brings humor to the audience while commenting on family dynamics. To depict the immaturity and lack of etiquette in the actions of the characters, de Botton uses juxtaposition in the setting, onomatopoeia, and other literary devices. De Botton intentionally sets his story in a theater with an “elegantly
Essay #2 Parents play a very important role in the lives of their children. If parents do it in the right way, it positively impacts children’s mental and emotional condition. One of the main characters from the short story “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” by Joyce Carol Oates, Connie, does not have that kind of relationships with her parents, with who she can share her thoughts or who to get a good advice from. The main reason of all Connie’s mental and emotional problems is that her parents do not play a good role model for her and compare with the older sister. Being parents is far more than just providing children with food and clothes.

Carolyn Kizner’s pantoum “Parent Pantoum” (1996) laminates that the speaker is conflicted about her daughter’s adolescent behavior and attitude. Kizner explores the speakers discontent between herself and her children using metaphor, juxtaposition, and parallel structure. Through her contemporary pantoum, Kizners speaker marvels at her “enormous children” (1) in order to try to understand how the girls can “moan about their age” (6) but still appear in “fragile heals and long black dresses” (7). Kizners pantoum addresses the speakers view on how kids act when they are in their adolescent years with a bewildered tone, however; as the poem progresses, the speaker develops her own ideas about why teens behave the way they do in a hopeful and proud tone.
