My parents allowed me to grieve anything I needed to – loss of friendships, breakups, bad grades, moving, leaving home to go to college, etc. My sister got diagnosed with scoliosis and was given a back brace at the same time she got braces for her teeth. So, I remember my parents helping her through the grieving process of those changes. They listened to her and allowed her to cope with it however she needed to without trying to tell her what to do but they also tried to help her see the positives of it all. In chapter 6, Gutman says, “It I important to surround ourselves with positive people – people who are both respectful of our desire to enact change and who understand how to offer the emotional support we need” (Gutman, 2005, p. 90).
I was never officially put into the system or foster care, however I relate to Spark and Flame because when my parents hurt me, I found solace in the arms of another caring mother-figure. Like Serena, my new mom helped me understand the situation and my emotions, and she helped me learn how to cope with them. I relate to Spark because he encounters confusion when it comes to loving his abusive mum and my emotional unease is similar to
Personally, she forgives easily and chooses to see the decency in people, leading to her allowing them back in her life. It surprised me when I discovered that my grandma had a similar response. She, too, said she was quick to forgive. However, she also realizes that nothing terrible has happened to her. In the book, Morrie also said, “Forgive yourself before you die.
The condition is completely reversible.’ ‘Of course,’ I said.”(Kingsolver, 166). During a doctor’s appointment, it was then disclosed that Turtle’s previous disposition was due to the condition failure to thrive. Though diagnosed with failure to thrive, through the care of Taylor and her friends, Turtle was able to revert the condition caused by the abuse she was subjected to within her previous environment. This recovery occurred due to Taylor’s and everyone else’s generosity and empathy. In spite of the irony, Taylor’s decision
Here, Amelia Brand regards love in much the same way that we regard gravity: It’s this complex force that impacts everything; we’ve measured and observed it to the point where we have a pretty clear understanding of its effects; people devote their whole lives to observing it. And yet, we have no idea why it exists .Meanwhile in the discussion, Cooper says, “Love has meaning. Yes, social utility, social bonding, child rearing… [01:27:50]” Brand encounters Cooper saying, “We love people who have died. Where’s the social utility in that? Maybe it means something more, something we can’t understand.” Here Cooper encounters the Amelia’s
Babysitting can be considered hidden intellectualism because it allows me to adopt intellectual skills such as patience, critical thinking, and time management. By using these skills, I can also practice comparing and contrasting the many ways of dealing with problems a child might cause, and determine the best course of action to resolve a real-life situation in real time. Being with two different families showed me different ways to care for a child, and how the method is chosen can affect the child in the future. Growing up, my parents never took me to daycare instead they let my grandparents take care of me, on one hand, I would get spanked if I did something wrong and on the other, my Grandma would give me M&M’s from my grandfather’s secret candy stash, and being raised with two different families made me realize the pros and cons of each. Although I had loving grandparents who gave sweets every day, I also had stern ones who helped show me how to survive the daily world.
According to Lane, self-concept are characteristics that you believe describes you (2008). My self-concept are the two main characteristics that I personally believe describe me the most: empathetic and optimist. I have been in different cases that described that I am very empathetic to the level that I would help somebody out first before helping myself. My parents kept on sharing with me the story of how I got my finger hurt when I was trying
I also believe I remember it because I have always been able to look back on the scars and recall how I got them. It was a learning experience for me. I blacked out because I had panicked in the situation. After that I now know I need to stay collected when facing a terrible situation. This injury also helped me get through tough situations later.

Hester used her redemption for the good of others and that is why her search was successful. Towards the end of the novel, once Hester and Dimmesdale have their final confessions, Hester finds redemption by helping people in need. “And, as Hester Prynne had no selfish ends, nor lived in any measure for her own profit and enjoyment, people brought all their sorrows and perplexities, and besought her counsel, as one who had herself gone through a mighty trouble” (Hawthorne 234). People would come to her to get help with their troubles because they saw how Hester handled her sin so well. Hester also found her redemption by supporting Dimmesdale during his hard times.

I did not have the experience, knowledge and I dare to say the educational background that may make me feel more comfortable to work with Homeless Families. However, the Program Director of the program gave me the courage and the correct inspiration on how to prepare myself and to learn quickly. Her words during the job interview
I didn’t know why I felt like I couldn 't accomplish even the simplest task. School counselors and faculty were seeing my struggle, so they reached out to my mom.
