However, Miss Maudie does not let this age difference affect the way she sees Scout. Most children receive less respect than adults do from other adults. Miss Maudie on the other hand, gives Scout the same amount of friendship and respect she would have given to any of the other ladies. Because of this, Scout views Miss Maudie as a good person and appreciates her not laughing. The other ladies laughing made Scout feel unwelcomed, which is not something friends do to friends.
Child beauty pageants, on the other hand, do not have such fatal influence on them. It is certainly quite natural that many parents wish for their children to grow up to be “wholesome,” but children also have their own will, no matter how young they are. If they want to participate in beauty pageants, parents should not restrict them because of their unilateral desire or the social ethics. This is the very objectification of their children, which happens by overprotection. Thus, the protest that child beauty pageants should be banned does not have any logical reasons.
Assessment of Darlathea Hiers, “Bedwetting”. 1) Strengths She displays a thorough knowledge of age-appropriate development as well as anticipatory guidance for the parent. I do feel it would be proper to find an appropriate manner to encourage the parent to focus more on the child than on the negative effects on their own life, without being judgmental. The parent seems to be more interested in how the issue is affecting her own life than the effect it is having on the child. Darlathea manages to address this fact without appearing judgmental or using language which the parent might find accusatory.
Each one of Opal’s actions were filled with kindness, sometimes intentional and other times unintentional, but all benefited the people she reached out to. I think Opal learned subconsciously through her mother leaving that ever action you make can affect those around you and Opal did not want her actions to have negative effects. When Opal learned of Otis’ arrest, “[she] swept the floor real slow that day. [She] wanted to keep Otis company. [She] didn’t want him to be lonely.
Khazan dives deep into one side of the psychology of children and the effects that discipline may have on children. In her text, No Spanking, No Time Out, No Problem, Khazan states that, “The way to get rid of a child’s negative behavior is not punishment.” (Khazan). This quote insinuates that the author works to tell people, specifically parents, that punishing children is not the way to get them to comply and behave. From here, Khazan uses evidence from a personal interview with child psychologist, Alan Kazdin. Kazdin has and provides a considerable amount of evidence from his own experiences and his own studies, making him a pretty reliable first-hand source.
Nowlan is using the metaphor of a thunderstorm to describe the child’s fear of Aunt Jane’s fate. All readers have experienced a type of childhood fear. A deeper understanding of this child’s fear is found in lines seven and eight, “Christ Lord, if I should die before I wake—I pray the Lord my body take”. The readers by now ought to realize the child’s fear is more than thunderstorms. Those two lines imply a fear of the future.

As much as a reader might agree with Sherley Anne Williams’ ideas of Hurston’s writing, there are some concepts a reader may question. Although the author, Sherley Anne Williams, was correct in suggesting Hurston including the shield of protection for Janie from her grandmother, Nanny, was not creating a picture of life looking like reality; however, her idea that Janie had an insufficient amount of wisdom about herself as a whole is inaccurate because Janie does have self-awareness as she chose who she wanted to be, even if the ideas were pushed away by others. Sherley Anne Williams includes a quick understanding of how Janie sees herself. Discussing how Janie saw her self for the first time in a picture, notiving she was black. Because Janie
