It can solve conflict. Diversity Day can be a source of education. It can teach the townspeople and children of different cultures around the world. It can teach people about different recipes they could cook at home. It would also teach about religion and language.
What have I learned about myself as a learner from this chapter? According to the beginning of this chapter, each person who lives long enough will become a part of every age group. Without choice, we must all go through the various stages in life and eventually join the ranks of the aged. Like other cultural groups, we feel, think, perceive, and behave, in part, based on the age group to which we belong. The study of age as a function of culture is important to educators because it helps them understand how the child or adolescent struggles to win peer acceptance and to balance this effort with the need for parental approval.
It is important that children and young people are educated and encouraged to learn about cultures and beliefs different to their own. This will promote an anti-discriminatory practice. There are many multi-cultural festivals and celebrations that happen in the UK. In school it is important that all children learn about these celebrations to educate them on other individual’s cultures, for example, Diwali, Hanukah, Christmas and Ramadan. This will give children an insight on others cultures and how they celebrate within their religion.
Everyone has a problem or question that he has not yet found a solution or an answer to; everyone has something that he is uncertain about. Like many, there are problems and questions about religion, science, and love that I would like to solve, but one of the questions that has most negatively impacted my life is “what makes people happy?” which then lead to the question “is there anything that can make everyone happy?” Luckily, I have found answers to these questions, and I can finally apply the knowledge acquired by these answers to my life.
Children come to school with a particular mind set each according to their culture. For example, a Hispanic child might find very common to eat tacos, beans and rice very often. On the other hand, a European student might not find constantly eating Mexican food very common. Also, in a traditional Hispanic household it might not be too normal to eat out more than once a week or in special occasions. With this in mind, it is important to remember that students need to keep learning their home language and talking about it in order to relate and identify similarities and differences with other languages.
I was able to talk to the parents because I was used to doing that from the adult clinical, but it was more difficult with the children. I had to get out of my comfort zone to figure out different ways to talk to the patients on their level and be able to communicate with them

Parents are aware of their children’s weaknesses and strengths, "Parents can choose the amount of structure that is best for them and their children. Each program can be individualized to suit the needs and interests of each child. Each child can progress at his own rate instead of at the rate of the group" (Gorder, 1987, cited in Margaret, p.11).Moreover, parents are able to assess their children on a daily basis and provide additional instruction if required. Another argument against homeschooling is that homeschooling generates isolated unhealthy environment for the child. “In school, the argument goes, children learn valuable skills such as the ability to work with others, to handle interpersonal conflicts, work in groups or teams and to make personal sacrifices for the betterment of the group.
Mediation can be an experience that people often shy away from because they think that they do not need to solicit the help from a third party. The types of conflicts that can require the need for mediation have a long range. The conflict I choose to have my volunteers, my mom and brother, act out was the example of a custody battle. This conflict in real life can often be messy and require mediation so that parents can work together to find what is in the best interest of the children. This is also what I as the mediator was hoping to help find.
