After weighting all the pros and cons, we decided to not send our child to the daycare. One of the main reasons for our decision was that daycare options in our neighborhood is either unreasonably expensive, or affordable but with not outstanding reputation. Couple of friends of ours thought we are nuts by not sending a child with a difficult temperament to the school, but we, on the contrary, thought he will benefit by being home more and that way we will be able to facilitate a less irritable environment. I see that transfer to the daycare might led some children—especially, more sensitive ones such as Otto—to think that their parents are indifferent, and this may then affect the parent-attachment relationship. Provided that my partner and mine’s working schedules are flexible, it is possible for us to alter and take care of our child in the home environment.
William Kamkwamba was born into a Malawian farming family, and from a young age William’s dream was to become a scientist. He was on the right track to becoming a scientist, going to school and doing well, but his academic plans were put on hold when a devastating famine desecrated Malawi. His family was unable to pay for his school bills, so he was forced to drop out. However, even without the proper schooling William was determined to become a scientist. He eventually was able to create something terrific to help his family 's farm, a windmill, without even going to
Instead of making their child work hard, they snow plowed the problem away. Then there are the free range parents. These are the parents that do not create rules or set boundaries for their child. If a parent were to not establish a curfew with their child they most likely are a free range parent. No two parents are alike, but all have some similarities, and these two parenting styles are not an exception.
I know this is not as important but we get to try out the sports we want and we do not think much of it. In reality sports can be expensive and difficult for some people to afford. I learned about the Cary Ballet Company in North Carolina who went to a homeless shelter and taught the kids basic ballet moves. They also gave the kids a free pair of ballet slippers. This story inspired me and it would be great to donate toys and game to homeless shelters and try to volunteer to play some games with the kids.
What would you do if you weren 't able to go to school and had to work for your father in the fields? That is what William Kamkwamba had to face. William is the author of The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind which tells the true story of his life in Malawi, and how he built a windmill to bring electricity to his village. William lived in a small farming village where they struggled through seasons with no food because of famine and drought. William couldn’t go to school because his family did not have the money.
Kids during this time couldn’t expensive schools because their parents didn’t have money to send them. George Eastman made this possible by donating money so kids could learn and go to school. J.P. Morgan donated paintings, sculpture, and tapestries to
Students cannot express themselves and wear their favorite clothes. According to Nancy E. Bailey, PhD, an education author and activist, she states that ,“ Students should learn to make informed decisions about the clothes they wear.”(ProCon.org) Overall, people should consider public schools because of it does not require uniforms. Another reason people should go to public schools, because of their cost. It is free for a child to attend a public school, but lack of funding always comes from fundraisers, donations, and events. Some events
According to the World Bank, more than fifty percent of citizens in Malawi were living beneath the poverty line in 2010. This widespread poverty often forces African citizens to utilize cheap materials that more fortunate people might view as worthless. The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind, written by William Kamkwamba and Bryan Mealer, tells the story of how William Kamkwamba, an ordinary Malawian boy, creates electricity for his entire town simply by recycling old materials and teaching himself to build a windmill. William constantly faces negativity and challenges in his journey to make his dream a reality. However, the adversity he faces pushes him to keep going and make the best of what he has.
Druggies are getting free food and free everything else but yet are contributing nothing to society. Another reason is that testing people will limit the intake of drugs. Testing people would insure safe environments for children growing up with irresponsible parents (Welfare drug testing 2). Children have no control over what family they are born into or where they live. But if we can do more to protect the future generation of America, then why aren’t we doing everything that we can?
Babysitting can be considered hidden intellectualism because it allows me to adopt intellectual skills such as patience, critical thinking, and time management. By using these skills, I can also practice comparing and contrasting the many ways of dealing with problems a child might cause, and determine the best course of action to resolve a real-life situation in real time. Growing up, my parents never took me to daycare instead they let my grandparents take care of me, on one hand, I would get spanked if I did something wrong and on the other, my Grandma would give me M&M’s from my grandfather’s secret candy stash, and being raised with two different families made me realize the pros and cons of each. Being with two different families showed me different ways to care for a child, and how the method is chosen can affect the child in the future. Although I had loving grandparents who gave sweets every day, I also had stern ones who helped show me how to survive the daily world.
Jonathan Kozol’s book explores the impoverished community of Mott Haven. The children interviewed in the community have had little exposure to the world outside of the South Bronx. Without anything to compare their situation to, they tend to accept and attempt to live out their childhood, playing and making new friends in the direst of circumstances. The children interviewed often discussed their religious views and their relationship with God. Children in privileged communities tend to look to their parents to help them when they are in trouble or feel confident their parents will be able to fix any situation.
