These benefits include, but are not limited to; an opportunity to develop/improve an individual’s ability to reason, think logically, analyze and solve problems. Also, to critically assess arguments (points of view) and increase one’s ability to speak and write clearly. Furthermore, Philosophy “attempts to determine and distinguish right actions from wrong ones, and good actions from bad ones” (CLASS NOTES). Philosophical ideas enkindle curiosity and evoke questions such as “what makes one action right, and another wrong?” “how should I live and treat others?” and “If I believe that something is morally right or wrong, does it mean that everyone else believes that it’s right or wrong?”. These and numerous other fundamental questions are presented in moral philosophy.
My personal experience as a child in the secure attachment style phase, I can recall being very attached to my parents especially my mother. I did feel connected to my mother because she was very nurturing and always concerned about me. I can remember times that she would leave home for long periods of time and I would stand in front of our living room window crying until she got home. I had older siblings that would watch me while my mother ran errands with my father, so staying at home with them I felt safe, but because I was the youngest and always with my mother due to her being a stay at home mom, I just always wanted to be with my mother. My mother catered to everyone of my needs, she comforted me when I cried, and she and my father made sure that we did family outings every Sunday rather it was going to the park, beach, zoo or for a long walk through the
SINGLE PARENT Single Parent First I would sit down with the student, to get feel of what issues are getting in the way of in excelling in school. If the student say’s it is too hard to work fulltime, raise children, and attend school. I would try to encourage the student by telling them that I grew up as only child with a single mother; it was only the two of us. She worked two jobs one was a night shift as a nurse, the other was cleaning houses during the day, and plus she went to school. So as a child I had to do my part around the house.
Starting at around the age of ten when my grandma went to work in the fields, she had to watch her siblings on an everyday basis. By herself she held down the job of being in charge at her home from early morning until the later afternoon. She had to make sure throughout the day all the house duties were taken care of. This means the yard work, cooking, cleaning, etc., she also had to make sure her and her sibling made it to school every day. This
I had unsupervised weekend visits over my biological sister 's house when I was 9, but I was treated very differently by my bio mother than my other siblings even though I was the youngest. I was issued to family therapy until I was about 11 and then my mother decided to not come anymore that was when i decide to kick her of my life. Growing up in foster homes and meeting my mom at a very young age has made me look at life differently because it helps me be more understanding to others situation and teaches me what not to do others. My favorite subject is science, since my dream career is a being a veterinarian because I have always loved animals and have wanted to somehow work with them. I like to study science because it helps push me toward my goal to become a vet.
The ability to view a scenario from the perspective of another person and create resolutions from that person’s standpoint is moral imagination. Moral imagination is more than empathy, more than just understanding a person’s position and feelings. To morally imagine, one must envision oneself in the scenario the other person is experiencing and comprehend the solutions from that person’s outlook. When one contemplates one’s actions in previous situations and examines one’s behavior, thoughts, and desires at the time, intending to judge whether one handled it ethically and effectively, one is morally reflecting. In this examination of conscience, I will morally reflect on a situation and use moral imagination with the objective of becoming better aware of my treatment of others.
My mother has always stressed the importance of dedication and hard work. My family and the people that I have encountered have contributed greatly to my life. I want to take what I’ve learned and apply everything to my everyday life for the betterment of my future. The earliest memory of significance during my childhood was going through my parents’ divorce. It was the beginning of first grade and looking back, I had absolutely no idea what was going on when my parents sat down to sign legal documents with a divorce lawyer.

This is where she would not only grow up around poverty, but also experience years of sexual and physical abuse. Oprah was raped for the first time at age 9 and continued to be raped for several years. Eventually she moved with her father and began to turn her life around.
