Whether single or married, the stress of attending college often burdens relationships with family and friends. Time and flexibility to engage in social activities you once participated in become a lesser priority now with homework. This can create some friction with friends and family members that do not understand why you suddenly have disappeared off the face of the planet. Having your own family and kids while attending college can make life even more stressful. I love my family and I would not change anything about them for the world, but combined with college and work it can all become incredibly overwhelming.
Paragraph 1: I am intrinsically motivated to (extend or persist in) my social work education due to my difficult upbringing and my moral obligation to my community. In my (early days), I saw a heavy deal of instability. While my parents were hardworking, they often were unable to manage their finances. Our household was (driven) from our household many times due to eviction and lived in hotels or temporarily settled with relatives. I was uprooted repeated and this directly affected my academic performance, my social skills, and my ability to trust others.
Not only do they feel like their is not hope but they also feel like there is no going back. “Lower household income and educational attainment were associated with greater amounts of negativity in mothers’ interactions with their children” (Winer, Thompson, and Davis). Parents struggle with not being able to be there for their child through there hardest time. There is less nurture in the house which can lead to depression among the child. Children in poverty isolate themselves from students at school in have nobody to lean on but themselves.
Ethical Question It is very interesting how professionalism has been pictured in the arts of work in the history. Professional code of conduct has been a topic under question especially when it comes to the youths and the teen age. This topic circulates around questions on aspects including how teachers are trained, how history is presented, and how storybooks for both middle and high school are written. Teens of the school going age are usually very critical about the materials presented to them. Some despise a lot of would be knowledgeable materials based on how they are presented to them.
The feelings of loneliness and failure to have what one desires is present even this day, all over the world. College students are constantly trying to plan out their lives and discover what occupation they should pursue, though more often then not, there are obstacles. Grades do not support the dream, or finances cannot manage the education needed. Feelings of disappointment and an attitude of giving up follow soon after, just as Edna experiences. Struggling to live the life one desires is one of the greatest hardships faced and is felt all around.
During the closing song, I experienced an overwhelm of emotions, and I was shocked to realize that fear was one of them. I feared for the campers due to return home by noon the next day, who had to return to a world that is far less accepting than MHKC. I was blessed with glimpsing personalities that rarely got acknowledged due to the marginalization against the disabled community in our society. The sense of belonging is a fundamental human need, and I realized in that moment that the children and adults around me had struggled all their lives with meeting that need. Belonging in a society that tends to be hyper-judgmental is no easy feat, which is made even more difficult due to the often physical symptoms apparent in many members of the disabled
High school was difficult for me to put it simply. Throughout almost all of it I was depressed. Caused by one thing or another and always varying in intensity, it was the only persistent aspect of my high school career. There are far too many events, feelings, and thoughts that provoked my spiral that I’m rendered unable to recall them all. Starting with my questioning of the morality of man after reading “All Quiet on the Western Front”, only to be escalated by the stresses of the IB program, then heightened by the worries that came with applying and affording college and my future in general.
These are some of the main reasons that people in college are failing. In college people believe that they can be trusted on their own. This is shown by the lack of support that they have to fall back on. In high school you always had your parents to help you. Then now in college there's usually no parents to help you.
Growing up as a kid, I was quite the troublemaker. I would do inappropriate things at inappropriate times and it caused me to get in trouble frequently. It didn’t matter whether or not I was in or out of school, I would continue to do obnoxious things. It could range from saying offensive words, physically hurting someone, or having zero consideration for others. At that time I felt like I didn't really know a lot about the world and it caused me to do things and ask questions later.
As time passes, military active duty parents are most of the time not around to celebrate and share those special moments with their own children. This could be difficult to understand especially at such a young age for children. “Much of the research about military children examines stressful experiences (for example, a parent 's deployment, moving, or maltreatment and abuse) or the deficits that these stress factors purportedly cause (for example, poor academic performance, depression, or behavioral problems).” (Cozza) During the time of when active duty men and women are gone, spouses are left to take care of everything on their own. For example, spouses have to raise their children by playing two roles as both parents. Besides having to act as a single parent, spouses have to deal with unforeseen situations that may occur when their significant other is not around.
