A good parent has to provide for their child on an emotional basis and beyond. In some of the works of literature we read, qualities of a good parent became apparent. There is no such thing as a perfect parent. Parents need to make mistakes to learn for themselves and set a good example for their children. Balance is a major key in parenting.
Every moment is a memorable part of the journey of life. I have always appreciated the value of giving to others because I believe that just being able to lend a hand to others, no matter how trivial it may be, is what makes life worth living. However, my desire to help people started when I began working with children as a teacher’s assistant. It would instill in me a lesson that I would never forget. As my first step at trying something different, in the beginning I was tense, unsure of what to do.
The same is true for when someone doesn’t give their true best. Effort, doesn’t mean that you have to be the best at something, or that you like doing it, it means that you care about your work and everything you encounter so much that you always strive to do what you can. In generations forward, due to technology, they may think that they don’t need to put work in themselves to get things done, but in reality the world can’t work if no one puts their best foot forward and gets their hands dirty (either literally or
I want to be there for my students and help them understand that there aren’t all bad people. Not many children have strong male role models in their lives and it really needs to be addressed. Just by simply being there for my students and letting them know that I am on their team really makes a difference in their
There were times when my parents spoiled me but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish. Having two other siblings helped me prevent the want of being selfish. I do not know what I would do without my family. My family is very inspiring because they show me all aspects on how I should live my life through their experiences like education, parenting, and work ethic. My family’s past experiences also teach me how to live my life the best way possible.
I quickly realized that a career as an OT would allow me the space to teach skills to children that would be life long and engaging, instead of passive. I prefer to work with a child as they are naturally and build up their capabilities. I do not care to prescribe medications that may harm children in the long run. I don’t desire to prescribe medications that may inhibit the child’s personality, or simply be a short-term fix to the true underlying problem. I interned with the same kids I had worked with as a teacher, but could not work with as an OT, due to lack of training.
That is what this life is about. You sacrifice for those you love. That is what my parent’s did. They brought my sister and I to this land of opportunity and even though they used their chance on us, their chance to follow their dreams, I will follow mine for them. People always ask me how I do so well in school, how I have the energy to do all the homework, study for the tests, do extra curricular activities, and never give up.
Not only do my parents realize the importance of skills, but they also provide me the opportunity to develop and better my spiritual life, as well as my well-being. Although an only child’s characteristics may be centered on skills-related achievements, my mother places great emphasis on holistic development and achievement. Being a skilled and intelligent person is not enough, but one must also have the ability to engage within the community, establish and strengthen interpersonal relationships and most importantly, have a strong faith in
I have learned that they care for abused children and look to improve their home and school life by fostering and or adoption. I was adopted as a child so this organization and what they are about speaks very loudly to my soul and my life. I was lucky enough to not have to go through any sort of abuse or neglect from either of my families, but I do know that it is very prevalent in today 's society. I was adopted when I was
She is loyal to the core and the most authentic definition of a champion the world has ever met. Her faith in me, and my potential is the sole reason that I’m pursuing a degree in elementary education. My hope is to reach students that are loosing confidence in school and themselves and assure them that they can do anything that they are willing to work for. It may not be easy but it’s possible. Mrs. Howell unquestionably instilled in me a love for learning and it is my mission to infuse that love into the hearts of children in my classroom for years to
