The way that parents parent their children is in direct correlation to how the child behaves and makes decisions. From this logic, the fault of the billions of dollars swindled out of people pockets is not solely on the people taking it. It is also on the people who are letting it happen. I feel that parents need to be more educated in this issue. My parents always discouraged me from watching television.
Washington’s view on their employees’ priorities inaccurately assumes that giving up their career for their family means their career becomes less important to them. Although, in the eyes of the employee their career is still equally as important to them but they have grasped the harsh reality that their values of their family had slowly slipped through their fingers during the process. In the article, Slaughter makes a point that employers make it hard for a parent to balance their private lives away from the office along with the hours spent while at work. Therefore, the assumption made is people in power place low values on the care of their children compared to their other obligations. I would categorize this under a false causalities assuming that a persons’ morals on the care of their children is decreased once they have reached a position of power.
Some of the established opinions say, “mandated family leave is a poor instrument at best, and thoroughly counterproductive at worst.”(Ghei, 2009). They think that the law cannot be changed and far from help mothers and fathers, regulations about extended paid family leave will do the opposite effect. Others state that “paid leave is expensive, they argue, and businesses should all be able to figure it out on their own.” (Kurtzleben, 2015). The opposite opinions believe that not every worker deserve apply for this right of paid family leave, just those who have a better position because they are the ones that produce more money to the employers. But we need to ask if this kind of opinions would be really fair to the rights which by law have employees.
That is not fair for the kids that do work hard to see trophies handed out to the the kids that have not been working as hard. With that being said i do not think that everyone should get a trophy. First off giving every kid a trophy for just showing up is making society weak. When our grandparents were kids they worked, went to school, came home and worked again so that they could help support their families and society. This made America go round.
This editorial focuses mainly on pathos but also uses ethos and logos to support their argument. Pathos plays a large role in the argument of this editorial. The authors bring out the emotion sympathy when they say, “Many families have exhausted their savings, and children are forced to work menial jobs instead of attending school” (“Refugees,” 2015). People feel bad for children in terrible situations because they are not yet fully grown and often do not understand their circumstances. In
“If you get this wrong, it’s actually a mistake that’s hard to undo for the rest of your life”(Peter Thiel co-founder of PayPal). Peter Thiel is explaining that today 's students are taking on much more debt, due to recently tightened bankruptcy laws that have made it more difficult to get out of debt. These factors make high education a risky investment. If you go to college and end up getting nothing out of it;then, it
This is when a child is not being given the love and care that he or she needs to grow. "Child neglect is when a parent or caregiver does not give the care, supervision, affection and support needed for a child’s health, safety and well-being" (childhelp.org). Victims create a habit of stealing food from others, constantly asking for money, or your food. No one knows the true reason why children are being neglected or abused. "The man who loses his job or cannot support his family as he thinks he should feels that he has failed as a man and as a husband" (Cooney 54).
Lacking family aid and medical assistance, leaves me to believe the family’s action of helping Mrs. Boyton’s rehabilitation was with positive intent. However, through the declining health and well being of Mrs. Boyton shows the negative impact of the culture of the family. As with most lower middle class families are making just enough to get by and are accustomed to long hour jobs, making work life balance for family matters inflexible and if not obsolete. This particular culture is negatively effecting Mrs. Boyton’s case, as daily care that was meant to be taken on by Mrs. Boyton’s daughter is out of reach financial to assist in her rehabilitation. If the Boyton family was not at the lower end of the middle class and could provide effectively for our client the adverse impact of their culture of ‘working to live’ may not be present.
Regardless of FASFA and high paying jobs, some students are still unable to afford college tuition. What about the students whose parents make too much money to qualify for financial aid, but all of their parent’s money is going to bills? Just because a student’s parent makes a lot of money does not mean they are capable to pay tuition that is over a thousand dollars. Another point she argues is that standardized testing is misused, and hurts the
Another issue with the current state of the minimum wage in the United States is that it is unfair to the children that grow up in poverty because they did not even have a choice. Speaking from my own personal experiences, oftentimes these children have to watch their parent(s) work hard to support the family yet, they still struggle. Nothing felt worse than when a child who is well off simply says their parents work hard to be where they are as if your own parents don’t. The children who came from well-off families often times treat the children that are not well off extremely poorly by ridiculing the children about the clothes they wear, the toys they have, and etc. I remember one of the worst times of the year was Christmas time when you heard that your other classmates got everything they wanted and when you tell them the measly amount of things you got and they respond with “is that all.” One year when my dad was no longer around for a while, my mother was struggling as a single mom and we could barely afford food so I could not get any Christmas presents besides the food one of her friends brought us for Christmas.
Colleges are not free and unless they get a full ride or anytype of help to pay for it parents will tend to go into debt. I thinks thats why most parents are afraid to send their kids to school because the debt is so high it takes a long period of time to pay it
