“A Spartan father had no right to decide whether to rear his newly born son or not.” (Document A) If his son was healthy, he would be sent away at seven years old to train for the military he would soon be apart of. If his son was not healthy, he would be left outside to die. This puts strain on a family, causes grief for the siblings, and is very distressing for the mother. Another disadvantage of Sparta's military is that the boys only learned reading and writing to a certain extent, since their military was their main priority. According to Document D, “The Spartans learned to read and write for purely practical reasons: but all other forms of education they banned from the country,...” If an man wasn’t interested in fighting and wanted a strong education, he was simply out of luck since in Sparta, killing others was more important than schooling.
If you’ve heard of Sparta and think it’s fantastic, think again. Sparta was a city state located on a peninsula in southern Greece called the Peloponnese. Sparta was very violent and all they thought about was having the strongest military. The weaknesses of Sparta outweigh the strengths because the Spartans lacked education, boys were taken away from their families at a young age, and they were very abusive. To begin with, Spartans lacked advanced education.
Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger. Days pass and years pass, Johnny was horribly scared of violence.

Kronos was a terrible titian, he was very selfish and worried more about his power than his own children. As a result, whenever one of his children was born he ate them. Zeus was lucky enough to be saved by Rhea and Gaea so when he came of age he decided to help his siblings that were trapped in Kronos. Zeus wanted to make things right for his mother and grandmother too, so he got a drugged drink that would cause Kronos to release his siblings. Furthermore, taking down Kronos was not the only good thing Zeus did in the myth, “The Cyclopes were so
Something new and unfamiliar about the movie was they was the bad teacher was teaching his students how to fight and the way he treated them. He made his students beat each other and how he would also hit his students. I experience sad emotions because I thought it was really messed up how a group of kids didn 't like Dre and just because of that they would bully him and beat him up without letting him have a chance to defend himself. The movie made me realize that when people are new to a school or to a new place it can make them feel like they don 't fit in. it is important to welcome then so we can make the other person feel better.
The purpose of this essay is to analyze its stereotypes against Tourette projected by the media through its characterization. Brad Cohen had a syndrome that makes weird noises and sounds, which was quite difficult for him to grow up. He got bullied by his mates and scolding from his teachers and principal.

While on the other hand, Donald use to constantly fight in school. He dropped out at the age of eleven, which lead to the beginning of his hatred against people, but women evidently more (Montaldo, “Donald “Pee Wee” Gaskin”).
As an example, Adam’s parents really bore him throughout the story, with their less than happy, relationship and careers. Adam says “My parents are really just a piece of the boredom in my life that I just don’t want for my future.” Also Adam doesn’t really like his friends because he just isn’t impressed with anything less than perfect. “I only hang with my friends because there’s nothing to do, sometimes I’d rather do nothing than hang with them.” Another example is when kids at his school make fun of him and call Adam the “suicide kid” and Adam doesn’t like this at all. He says, “The whole reason I dropped out of high school was that I couldn’t handle the bullying anymore and I just got sick of it. This makes Adam a lot more depressed because now he can’t go to school, and being in class learning is one of the only things that he somewhat likes.
Born and raised amidst penurious living-conditions due to his family’s exile, Nero was far from wealthy, let alone being an emperor-in-waiting. This was partly due to Nero’s father, Gnaeus Domitius Ahenobarbus, or Domitius’ ineptitude pertaining fatherhood. His violent and corrupt tendencies arguably not only rubbed off on Nero, but earned him his bad reputation, lasting until his death. According to Barrett (1996, p.51): …Domitius knocked down
