Despite the evidence against Atticus being a good parent, the evidence backing up the claim that Atticus is a good parent significantly outweighs the counterclaim. The main reasons why readers may think Atticus is a bad parent is because he does not know where is children are at most of the time, and he lets them loose multiple times, which once almost resulted in possible injury or death. However, letting the children explore on their own gets them the experience they need in real life. When Jem and Scout were at the court case. Jem learned a great deal about Maycomb and its citizens.
As a leader, she needs to make decisions strategically.” One of the greatest attributes a leader can have is the ability to bounce back, to push away the urge to give up.

Now, she became more, she is a role model to many people all across the world and inspires many on a daily basis with her powerful speeches for those children who have been deprived of an
Fault and redemption. What do these two words really do in our lives? Do they give us another chance or are they just concepts that we want to follow? In the world we live in, one fault can often make or break something in our lives, but when granted with redemption, we don’t always take it as seriously as needed and soon our fault becomes someone else’s pride. Sir Gawain’s faults can be a constant reminder of the mistakes we all make as humans along with the quote, “It is clear then that there can be no redemption without fault, just as one is unable to return from exile without first being sent into one.

Some deem others who do not wear the most fashionable clothes unpopular. In fact, according to the website Daily Mail, “children are so heavily influenced by brands that they bully or shun classmates who do not keep up with fashions and logos” (Clark). For example, in Heather Havrilesky’s essay “Bobos”, she discusses conflicts in school with fellow classmates treating her differently and ridiculing her because the shoes she normally bought were not the name brand shoes everyone else bought (Havrilesky 34). This is merely one example illustrating people being viewed differently and judged because of a misunderstanding of what normal is. In hopes to solve such problems, some schools even implemented school uniforms.
School Suspensions Are a Waste of Time Would you take school suspensions away if it would benedict the school? Many school have always used school suspensions as their way of chastisement, simply because it is the easiest way. School suspensions became popular around the 1960s and 70s because many more fights were occurring due to desegregation. Although school suspensions are widely used throughout most schools, it is time we found a more effective way of discipline. School suspensions are not working because students may not understand what they did wrong, suspensions feel more like time off than a punishment, and students are more likely to act out again after being suspended.
Mandatory activities should be enforced into the school systems. To many kids are not contributing enough to their school by just being superb in the classroom. Some kids don 't even discover their ability because they are scared of not making the team or being joked on. That is one of the essential reasons why I think that extracurricular activities should be imposed to every single kid in the school. Also extracurricular activities is a fun time for everybody even if you don 't like what you are being forced to do, you will find something marvelous out of it.
If a person does not respect and value time he or she will always lack in some way or the other. From this harsh but valuable experience I learnt that no matter where you go you will always have to deal with people who may lack in social skills and may not want to blend in as much as you do. Even though people may not realize it but they might hurt others feelings unknowingly due to the lack of communication or social skills by ignoring or just not replying to a question, comment or concern. English 100 was not the only course where I faced such difficulty but there were many other courses which made me go through such experiences of not having as hard working group members as me. Usually I was put in to groups which did not want to work until the very last minute or who would try to find an easy way out of doing
They may seem harmless at first but in the scenario of mine and many other families, expectations are a way of torturing young souls and minds. A way for parents to channel their ‘short-lived’ lives and desired outcomes through the young and naïve. Have you ever been impeded by expectations? Especially by your family? Well, I have… in fact, the simple phrase, “Family Expectations” sums up my traumatic and miserable life.
Harassment is an extremely important issue that is usually over looked by most people. People sometimes believe that harassment is similar to bullying, and it’s just words spoken or a little teasing. However, to some people it is life changing; to them, it’s buying a new house to run away from their harasser, or being afraid to come out of their own home in fear of them and in some extremes, taking one’s own life. Although, in spite of this, there are key pieces of legislation that can help victims overcome their desolate times. There are various types of behaviours and traits that can be considered as Harassment, such as; unnecessary physical contact, indecent demands or requests, inappropriate questioning, isolation, intimidating behaviour,
During school it might be boring to do work but at the end we all learn new things. Also, many of us get lectured from our parents about a bad grade or a poor decision, but after middle school or high school the advice pays off to know about. Even though, lots of people know what they did and might be honest with the choice they made and that will help them with avoiding the roadblocks of knowing they were lying to the parent. To avoid the roadblocks is to do the right thing and make the better choice.
In the words of Putnam, “beating kids is bad, but entirely ignoring them can be worse” (111). If a young child were to come home from school and be confronted by her parents screaming at each other, she would feel confused and hopeless. While parents not asking their daughter how her day was does not seem like a big deal, it is a necessary part of a child’s development because “cognitive stimulation by parents is essential for optimal learning” (110). Children who have parents that “talk with them frequently develop more language skills than kids whose parents rarely engage with them in conversation” (110). For this reason, if a child’s parents were severely not getting along, then they definitely would not be putting all of their energy into talking with their child and, therefore the child would have a harder time developing language skills.
As children they will always want to be part with family, and they are accepting that their parents have the right to make choices for them to achieve their gold. In a chapter from “Aria: Memoir of Bilingual childhood,” by Richard Rodriguez, who is an internationally known scholar, the author discusses his worlds that he has to face as a student who is raise up in a Mexican immigrant family and going to America school. Rodriguez explains his life experiences being education person and ones he had at home and culture. The more successful Rodriguez became as a student, the less connected he was to his cultural heritage and family. Over all, in Rodrigues life story was connected with some of my life experience, struggle with the language and adopt
Growing up in a home where your identity is shaped by the culture and ideas of those around you makes it extremely difficult for a child to find their own way in the world. To truly become your own person without being weighed down by your race, sexuality, gender, or beliefs is an enormous task that sadly many of us never accomplish. In Daisy Hernandez’s memoir “A Cup of Water Under My Bed” she talks about growing up with a Cuban father and Colombian mother and how her family’s views on what’s right and what’s wrong heavily influenced her choices and how she had to fight or conform to find her way. In her book, Hernandez talks about how she had to learn, adapt, and fight against the “norms” of the times and the “norms” of her culture. As we analyze Hernandez book
