By using this point of view to portray how helpless the main character, Lane Dean, feels, readers will learn entering an early parenthood is not always a good option for those who are young and unprepared ones because many problems and questions will arise. In Lane’s scenario, he does not know if he wants to keep the baby at first. Yet, his problems evolve to doubts as he begins to question his goodness, his love to Sheri and his faith in God. Therefore, the important message that readers can receive from “Good People” is: the standards of becoming “a good person” are unknown because everyone has distinct views on what is right or
And because of his confidence and credibility, the audience was very engaged and responsive. David McCullough Jr., in my opinion, achieved his purpose for the speech. I believe that even though he was humorous and joyful at some points in his speech, he made sure that the students understand the seriousness of the future they have planned. If I were to give him a grade, he would absolutely get an
This skill is very helpful for counselors of any kind. If you’re a marriage counselor and the couple is having issues than you can come up with an organized plan to help try and solve their issues. If you are organized, then it will also be much easier to keep track of the payments and work with insurance companies. Since Friar Lawrence was able to organize a plan quickly, that shows that he is very organized and would be able to keep track of the important things and organize plans for the couple to help their
If parents are hyperprotective against their kids and involve in every decision, how can they learn to develop themselves? And on the other hand, what should parents do if their kids need help and are totally failing in life? It is very difficult to make a distinction between love for children and being a helicopter parent. It doesn’t mean that parents don’t love their children if they leave some of the decision to the kid, instead of controlling their lives and hover over them like a helicopter and keep them under continuous surveillance. When we discuss this topic, parents may feel like they are caught between two stools, but it is better to loosen up than holding the rope tight.
In the beginning he discussed how he was introduced to reading, then conveys the extent of his effort towards reading and how it has assisted him in becoming a successful writer. Anecdotes are used effectively because the reader can see examples of how working hard can help them overcome barriers. It supports the claim with first hand evidence. The
The consistent appeal to the audience and their relationship to the MLF affirms their belief that he is a reliable source- and Wallace makes sure the audience understands he knows his own biases and misunderstanding in both the main portion of the essay as well as the footnotes. Footnote 6 is particularly important for judging the ethos of the writing. The audience sees the clear bias in the observations but rather than ignore his own preferences, Wallace explicitly states why he holds these views and that the audience should be aware of this, strengthening the trust between author and audience. He also uses the footnotes to build his own understanding and awareness of the topic. The footnotes serve as a both a break from the essay,
Many parents believe that they need to be a crucial part of their children 's’ lives. Unfortunately, they do not know that helicoptering a child may have harmful effects on the child’s education. I support Valerie Strauss’s opinion which states that helicopter parents are harming their children. Helicopter parenting mainly harms the children in middle schools and beyond which is why many middle schools are currently creating policies which limit parent access to classrooms. Hardy Knox Middle School has a policy that restricts parents from entering classrooms in order to prevent parents from disturbing classrooms.
This showed his respect for the foundation that was laid by his predecessors. These aspects of his speech appealed to ethos which persuades people into putting their trust into him, since his statements have shown that he is a credible
People often think that parents have a basic human right to have the freedom to determine the number and spacing of their children. Government intervention is also unfavorable due to the fact that the one-child policy is proving to disproportionately harm the women in that country. The very reason that the government is constantly encouraging and enforcing abortion, emotionally damages the women. Thus, this shows that by implementing the One-Child policy, it not only abuses human rights but also emotionally damages women who are forced to
Huntington developed a theory involving this exact problem and believed that globalization would lead to cultural clashes. As to the up-bringing of children, this article is a brilliant example of his theory. Amy Chua feels trapped in a moral dilemma, as her husband has a very different approach to their children’s upbringing, due to their cultural differences. Therefore the two of them often end out in “clashes” or rather big arguments. These arguments are often about Amy’s very strict way of dealing with their kids.
