My intent is to not persuade them to see the situation my way, however, I would want them to understand the principle behind self-feeding. Self- feeding is more than building independence in the child, which still is very important, however self-feeding also helps the child with their hand-eye coordination and fine motor development. As I gather my information, I would consult with my director and other professionals to get their feedback about this type of situation. Once I collected my research I would then arrange to share in some way with the family through a newsletter or hand-outs, email, even a parent board that other parents could see the information as well. My number one priority with this type of interaction with the family is to not embarrass them or treat them like they are not being practical but to show them support.

Instead of oppression against women, it represents oppression against kids; in particular those of poorer social classes. It is a significant part of the book, as it symbolizes false hope and how the regime is brainwashing the kids for its own benefit. This is first shown on page 99 after Mrs. Nasrine’s son is given the key at school, and she says, “They told the boys if they went to war and were lucky enough to die, this key would get them into heaven.” These lies make the kids excited about going to war, ignoring the pain and horrors that they will have to endure. The word “lucky” makes dying seem like an amazing path to paradise that the kids should be honored to take, so they are more likely to desire that fate. The fact that they keys are only given to poorer kids make it easier for the regime to persuade them to go to war, using the promise of a better life as a bargaining chip which the kids won’t hesitate to receive.
Recently, the events in Charlottesville, spurred by confusion and hate have the nation pointing fingers, when in contrast we should be uniting as fellow Americans. Megan Boehnke, a writer for USA TODAY tackles the task of purposing adults and teachers that it is vital for children to be informed not only about the events at Charlottesville, but the national unrest of racial bias as well.

Children are forced into child labor, and many take advantage of them. In the article, “Child Labor Is Declining Worldwide, But It’s Thriving in These Six Countries”, Reid Standish explains the problem in Eritrea. He says, “Eighty five million: That’s how many children are involved the worst forms of child labor, including prostitution, the handling of hazardous materials, and heavy labor.” This is the greatest amount of children involved in child labor within a country. Like Eritrea, Myanmar has a significant amount of child labor, only that their main use of labor is for soldiering. They have the greatest number of children in a national army in the world and the number of 300,000 is projected to grow in the coming years.
These people often fill their articles with words intended to evoke a strong feeling of resentment towards child soldiers for their readers. For example, according to IRIN News in the article “Should Child Soldiers be Prosecuted for their Crimes?”, chooses words such as perpetrators, criminal and atrocities to describe child soldiers (Johannesburg). Their word choices connotate the seemingly violent lives of child soldiers. It is as if they are trying to imply that the actions carried out by child soldiers are done by their own accord, but they fail to realize that the children are under the influence of drugs, abuse, and their

This translates to a rate of 2.25 children per 100,000 children in the general population and an average of nearly five children dying every day from abuse or neglect”. (www.childwarefare.gov) Human Rights Watch shares that “the real risks that children face are quite different: government statistics indicate that most sexual abuse of children are committed by family members or trusted authority figures, and by someone who has not previously been convicted of a sex offense.”(www.hrw.org) Consequently, when evaluating the evidence that is present it is safe to say, that despite all of the efforts that are put forth every day to protect our youth, some people still have the potential to prey on those whom cannot defend themselves.

Therefore, the foundation has been laid, for the public to build upon and grow with the knowledge that we are able to obtain to keep our children safe.

But in this case LaDue didn 't cry out he wanted fame and by shooting or blowing up a school would, probably, he thought, would get him that fame.
