Gerald started a fire accidentally as a kid that burned down the entire apartment. During the fire, Gerald hid behind the couch that he would hide behind when he was scared. After the fire, Gerald thought about where Monique mom was, and if he would ever see Monique again. When Gerald finally woke up from the hospital, he overheard the doctors talking about Monique “in custody for child endangerment, abandonment-that sort of thing” (13). This symbol stands for Gerald’s new life.
It starts out with a quick conversation between Dewey and his wife where she says to him ”Only, when you come home tonight, you 'll have to ring the bell. I’ve had all of the locks changed.” The norm for Dewey has changed and that the murder affected his family too. Then after he hangs up one of his colleagues asked, “What’s wrong?

Lisa, My Nonverbal Observations Lisa has had a brain injury since her father pushed her mother down the stairs, depriving her brain from the essential nutrients flowing from mom. Lisa came into my life eight years ago, verbal and nonverbal communication has constantly been a struggle to comprehend and determine the truth from a seven-year-old in a fifty-year-old frame. Talking to a child is always enlightening, they speak the truth; unless it gets them in trouble. Observing Lisa, I saw the slouching shoulders, hand held down into her lap clasping her hands tightly to cause her knuckles to whiten. Biting her lower lip as she glances around the room trying to talk to you and gather her thoughts.

After the workers saw Genie, who had a gimp in her walk making it seem as though she moved in a jerky walk and also spat and clawed for no apparent reason, the Wiley’s were charged with child abuse.

Genie Wiley was admitted into a children’s hospital at the age of fourteen, yet she was still in diapers, and was so skinny she appeared to be an 8-year-old, with the language skills of an undeveloped
In Katz’s video, he talks about the bystander approach which was based on gender violence prevention. For example, Stewart mentions his confession about what he had witnessed growing up as child which was the domestic violence between his father and mother. Even thought Stewart had to intervene and get in between his parents he points out that children will find it impossible to talk about it. Therefore, the bystander approach seems to be promising on preventing violence. I feel like in Stewart’s experience growing up and having overcome the male stereotypes or in Katz’s opinion on violence against women as being a men’s issue it will definitely have an influence on men.
There have been many discussions on whether spanking or corporal punishment is a manifestation of abuse to children or whether it should be used to discipline a child. In today’s society many parents thinks that spanking a child is one of the better approaches to correct him/her if that child has done something that the parent believes is not right. Part of the problem is that everyone characterizes spanking, or corporal punishment differently. “Corporal punishment is the use of physical force with the intention of causing a child to experience pain but not injury for the purposes of correction or control of the child’s behavior” (Gershoff, 2002). In Corporal Punishment, parents usually hit a child with their hands, or objects such as a

In chapter 14 of Brave New World, death is treated as nothing more than an inevitability. In this chapter, we see that even though John is looking for his mother, the nurse is impatient and tells him “Well, I must go, ... I’ve got my batch of children coming.” (182) These children are more important to the nurse due to her conditioning telling her death is going to come to the patient sooner than the children. When the nurse finally brings the children for their death conditioning, “They swarmed between the beds, clambered over, crawled under, peeped into T.V. boxes, made faces at the patients.” (183) These children are being conditioned to treat death as something natural, so as children they treat the hospital like their playground. When
