In The Joy Luck Club, Lindo Jong’s rural Chinese family depends on a matchmaker to find “the best marriage combination” for their daughter (Tan 50). Lindo herself acknowledges the decision and recognizes that she has “no choice” in the matter for the majority of her childhood (Tan 51). In “Matrimony with a Proper Stranger,” Rajiv asked his parents to arrange his marriage. They were the ones that took it upon themselves to “seek out suitable partners” for their son (Helft 84). For families in the Chinese countryside, the wisdom of matchmakers and the compatibility of zodiacs had a heavy influence on the perceived outlook of one’s marriage.
As I ate, I asked my mother “When do you think dad will be home from deployment?” “Anytime between two forty and three o’clock” she said. “Hmph, If I were him I’d get here by three thirty to pick us up from school” my younger sister Emma Sky uttered. Emma is one of those girls who is very popular at school and cares about her friends and family, but doesn’t care about much else. She is a really nice sister, but she can get to be a pain sometimes. Emma is actually a decent student though, no matter what people think about the “popular group” of kids at school, Emma is part of them and still a good student.
The instructions form a plaster for the student’s thoughts, while the advice caters to the student’s own unique thoughts. As a result, later in life, the one who learned through example will be better off because he received guidance on how to do work better, and not how to follow certain
Theory 1- Behaviourism The basis of the behaviourist theory is that learning is a passive process in where learning is defined as "what people do in response to external stimuli" (Elliot, 2007, pg 46). Learning is therefore the procurement of new behaviours. According to Skinner, knowledge is not used to guide human actions, it is the action itself (Skinner 1976. p152). Behaviourism suggests that in order to learn, the learner needs an active engagement and needs to be reinforced with instant rewards (Sotto, 2007: 35). The more satisfying the reward to the learner, the more the behaviour of the learner is strengthened, leading to more comprehensive learning (Skinner 1974 cited in Elliott 2007 pg 48).
The daycare program teachers teach teen parents the responsibility of being a responsible parent. The program doesn't just teach teenage parents, but it also teaches other students in the school about the responsibility of being a parent. With the daycare program, more teenage parents are graduating every year. The Chief program officer, Bill Albert, for the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy, said "It is the right thing to do to take care of these women, to help them succeed, to help them get the best education we can. We have to be equally as strong in sending a message of preventing future teen pregnancy, about how raising children and having children is an adult
Last 3 weeks ago, while I was surfing the internet. I found some advertise. It was about the organization of helping the homeless children(Baan Jing Jai) . At the first time,I thought that advertise was fake so I searched the name of the organization and I found that it was real. In their website I saw many homeless children.I felt sympathize with the homeless children so I decided to donate my money and toys to them.Because I thought my money can help them be educated.Maybe the organization didn 't have equipment enough so they could not teach the children.Moreover Life of the children was better.
Destiny learns and absorbs the information that is being told by her mother. She learns what is the right thing to say in a certain environment, such as saying positive things on the new year toward your elders. In Chinese New Year, it is a practice that the younger children greet their elders and wished good luck and good health for that individual. In return, the elder would wish the younger individual good luck and a red envelop would be
Atwood reveals this when Offred is at the gynecologist and he offers to impregnate her, then she remembers her husband Luke and says no (61). Morals and values help you know what is right and wrong, which helps build character. Remembering the values you were taught as a child will help you make better decisions as an adult because those morals have been instilled in you for your whole life. For example, if you are raised with the moral of being honest and telling the truth, then that will benefit your life because people will respect you for being honest. Remembering your values is helpful in situations where good morals are needed, such as helping others, because when you help others, you also feel good.
Despite the war and her abusive marriage with Rasheed, Laila has positive outlook on life that serves her in numerous situations. This includes her decision to return to Kabul, a place where her family once called home. Laila portrays her hopefulness for the future by becoming a teacher for both boys and girls in the orphanage to demonstrate that gender equality is the norm. She takes on the role of behaving as a motherly figure for the children in the orphanages because their parents are unable to support them or because they are dead from the wars in Kabul. The only family that they have is Laila and her family, which leaves Laila with the responsibility to raise the forgotten children of Kabul.
In his psychoanalytical approach to myths, Bettelheim (1989) argues that nothing provides greater wealth to children as traditional children's literature. To support his view, he argues that traditional children's literature help children learn about human progress and possible problem solving. This is because myths undoubtedly and briefly involve some problems that the child can understand. In addition, myths involve a moral behavior of heroes (Von Franz, 1996). Thus, children can learn that it is inevitable for one to fight against the difficulties of life and that these can be overcome.
Anyone that drives you to want to succeed and for Wes that was his mother, Joy. She did everything should could for him so he wouldn’t go down the same path a lot of kids his age were going down. She wanted a better life for Wes. “Well, your grades obviously aren’t bad because you can’t pick this stuff up or because you are stupid, you are just not working hard enough” (75-76). Joy is influential to Wes because she knew that Wes had the ability to learn and to be intelligent, she just needed Wes to push himself to be intrigued in school like how he was in music or outside activities.
In my opinion, it seems like her mother is making irrational decisions regarding her social, emotional, and cognitive well-being. Yet, after reading Chen’s text, there are three valuable lessons I learned. First, I support the following notion, “the amount of time that children spend in play may be related to socialization beliefs about the role of play in development” (Chen, 2011, p. 95). Apparently, Vera’s family wants to prepare her to participate in a social role that cultivates her family system, rather than a social role that seems to benefit her solely. Hypothetically, running through a sprinkler system at camp does not seem as satisfying as sitting next to her parents at the cash register in her family
Teachers are giving students easy work to make them feel proud of their grade. Easy work isn’t going to change the student 's mindset. This will just make it harder for the student to learn new things, difficult things, as in this case they would want to give up and not try. Dweck also states, “Kids need to be given hard problems, instead of being rewarded for easy problems” (22). Difficult work is what needs to be given to students to help them learn and the process of making mistakes.
Like everyone, I have weaknesses thats make me fall but, I also have strengths that help me get right back up. Spending nearly third-teen years in education not counting four plus years that will be spent in college, motivation is what will be need to get us threw the failures and help achieve our goals. Threw grade school and high school I thought of myself as a “slow learn”. I new I needed help but never asked for it. Reading “brainology” by Carol Dweck showed me I have a “fixed mindset”.
Children who are strong feel confident when meeting new people, like to do nice things for others, are loving and lovable, and are optimistic about life and are able to stand up to peer pressure so they can avoid using drugs, drinking alcohol, and smoking (Staff). Parents fear their children having strength is horrible, but in the contrary, it is not. Give kids freedom to figure things out in their own way within the boundaries you have set; parents should walk an acceptable line between respecting a child 's need for independence and privacy
