Although none may have wanted to flee from their home country, they did so under necessity, and were able to find a home in a completely foreign country to them. The differences in culture between the Hmong and Western cultures were distinct, but the Hmong were still able to practice their own traditions and aid each other in their time of need, such as when Paja needed the communal help. They overcame struggles together, and in the end, were able to keep their culture, though the Hmong children are also embracing the
All of my family members, including I was born in Haiti. I strongly believe that my heritage has a lot to do with how successful I have been throughout my life because my parents have been through a lot in their lives and so have my past relatives who were born In Haiti, therefore they have had a great influence on me to become successful. Although my father worked hard for what he has today, he still feels as if he did not work hard enough because if he did, he would have been in a better position than he is today. My mom went to college in Haiti for all 2 years and graduated, but never attended the extra 2 years that she wanted to attend because of obstacles that got in the way. Both of my parents have talked to me and told me that “if you’re willing to work hard, it does have its rewards”.
Family theories have been used throughout the history of nursing to help guide patient care and provide the best patient outcomes. Certain theories may be more applicable to the specific patient encounter; however, each theory has benefits and drawbacks to their use. The purpose of this paper is to examine two selected theories, comparing their strengths and weaknesses. I will also discuss a theoretical family in relation to one theory, and how that theory can be best integrated into the care provided by an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN).
(Lindsay, 2015, “The Story of the Hmong People in the United States” Para. 8) The Hmongs have made many sacrifices, leaving behind their land and becoming some of the first generations in the United States as their lives are influenced by many things every
While family structure has changed dramatically since the 1950’s, what current changes are we seeing; and how is it affecting the roles to which we play in a compromising world. In the 1950’s families consisted of a head of household (the Father), the house wife (or mother); and their offspring (the children). The father’s duty was to bring home the bacon, while making end meets for his family, while the wife stayed home and cared for the children, the elderly; and took on the household duties. These families usually lived in the suburbs, where they raised their children; while teaching them the proper ways of life. During this time in history, young women were expected to find a mate through persuasion, then get hitched; and eventually produce an offspring. While most of these
They come from rural areas, have few job skills, and speak little English (Everyculture.com/Cambodian-Americans/Acculturation and Assimilation). Younger Cambodians struggle with identity problems and there is often a division between the younger and older generations (Everyculture.com/Cambodian-Americans/AcculturationandAssimilation). A good number of Cambodian American families are headed by female which is a contributor to their poverty (Everyculture.com/Cambodian-Americans/Family and Community Dynamics). It is hard to say which group had the most difficult time overcoming obstacles. Many of them had just wanted to better the lives of their families and thought they could do so in America.
My father didn’t have familial issues, but the violence in the country made him flee El Salvador and leave his family members behind. He says even though they were poor he was satisfied with only having the necessary things in life. My father was the only one in his family who came to Los Angeles. All my aunts, uncles, cousins, half-sisters, nephews, and nieces live in El Salvador, and their personalities are humble,
Family structure talks about family arrangement and composition which includes the roles and interactions (Edelman, 2014). According to Minuchin (2012), the family structural theory emphasis on the important of the family structure and its changes that occurs and how the individuals in the family relate collectively over time to put up and accept each other. Minuchin says further that a well-functioning family will choose how to solve and handle the family experience with a positive outcome. The goal of a structural family is to express the strengths in each other in critical moments, and helping each other through it. Developmental theory is the methods used as the viewpoint of family tasking and development through phases of life (Edelman, 2014).

Introduction In this case study, it analyse how the concept of family has changed in the past 20 years as it will be depicting modern family forms and past norms.
