Imagine you’re 15 and you walk into health class and everyone looks at you because you’re really stressed out about how you’re going to care for your child the way you need to. Less than 2% percent of pregnant teens will complete a college degree by the age of 30 and roughly 77% of teenage pregnancies are unplanned. Teenage mothers normally don’t realize that when they get pregnant, they need to look after the child, take care of it, love it, and most importantly shelter it. Meaning it’s time for them to grow up and live up to their responsibilities as a mother not just mess around and not graduate. A teenage mother will need a high school degree to get a job to care for her child.
“The Cardboard Room” by Teresa Pitman is about a teenage girl who comes from a judgmental family. Particularly, they are not fond of a refugee family, who according to them do not belong. When assigned to work on a project with a member of the family, Eric Nye, she begins to understand how someone’s appearance does not define who they truly are. After spending more time with Eric and his family she quickly realizes that people should not be judged and criticized for their circumstances. Eric informs the protagonist about events that happened back home and the struggles it took to get where they are today.
Since they cannot rely on themselves or their parents, helicoptered students may drop out of college. It is difficult to change a child’s routine when relying on a parent becomes a habit. Don Aucoin, a reporter mentioned in In Defense of Helicopter Parents, writes,”Helicopter students have lower grades than their peers.”(Belkin) Helicopter students have lower grades because they don’t know how to work independently when they are asked to take a test or work on classwork where their parents cannot help
Researchers have defined “helicopter parenting” as parents who are too involved in their children’s life. This includes solving problems that children could solve on their own and making important decisions on their children’s behalf. This causes many problems in children. Helicopter parenting is wrong because it is invading a child’s privacy. A parent hovering is harmful to the child because it can cause a feeling of being overwhelmed by always having someone over their shoulder (“Here’s Why You Need to Stop Helicopter Parenting”).
They are interrupting their kids lives and picking up their messes in life for them. “They hover from the prospective admissions stage to graduation and the job market beyond – contacting presidents of universities, deans, and professors, disputing their child’s grade; requesting an extension for their child; complaining their child does not receive as much praise as the parent would like; completing assignments for their child; requesting notification of grades their child received; and even attending job fairs and interviews with their child” (Vinson). According to this Vinson, this is too far for parents to go, they have crossed the line. These actions can interrupt children's learning and upset the school board. This isn’t the best interest for your
The mother puts too much pressure on the family to do what her family did. I can understand that the mother didn’t want to be alone, but as a mother you should want you kids to do better than you did and want them to succeed in life. When her only son was going to school , she said; “ I never though a son of mine would choose useless books over the parents that have you life”(Macleod 18). It shows how the mother was putting so much pressure and guilt
If students and others disregard the topic that children shouldn’t get paid for good grades, it will be their own problem and it can negatively affect a students future due to not having certain life skills and will only end up hurting them in the long run. Children should most likely not be paid for grades because so many negative outcomes are to follow with it and it is just seen as a good deal in the short
I got so stressed out and over whelmed I had a break down to my parents and told them I don’t like being an adult it’s so hard. My mother said well, you was so in a rush to be grown and didn’t want to follow no one rules so you got what you wanted. You just didn’t know what you putting yourself into I told you to stay a kid as long as you can know it’s too late .My 20th-22th I always wished I would have listened to my parents about trying to grow up so fast. Know I have to manage two jobs and go to school just to make my ends meet. I didn’t have mommy or daddy there to give things to me or buy me things any more.
Morals are significant because without morals a person will not just pick up cultivated behavior from parents, they will pick up behaviors incorporated from themselves. An exemplification of this would be two people, where one person is less fortunate, parents have low-paying jobs ,and is struggling to take care of themselves. On the other hand, one person has everything, parents have money , and they want for nothing in the world. The working family child is a straight A student, plays sports, and has dreams to be a doctor. Whereas, the rich child plans to mooch off their parents, don’t go to college, and don’t get good grades in school.
This is relevant in today’s society because most kids don’t have the right influence in their household so they need the extra help from others to lead them the way. Even adults struggle with their relationships and personal life and need someone to help pick up the
