American teens My life compared to the Americans in the documentary is totally reversed compared to theirs. For starters, my parents hopefully don 't expect anything from me at all, only that I get through high school and get a job. They wouldn’t say that I wasn’t special just because my grades were above average but not #topoftheclass grades, they would instead encourage me to try harder in a good way I think. Then the Americans always have a pressure built up on them, for if they don’t get through high school and don 't get into college they would be nobodies and society would think of them as losers and failures. I don’t think that anybody would think of me a failure just because I didn’t pass school, they would probably start to think
Although Quinones-Mayo and Dempsey do not include a concrete evidence of what the American Dream is, they showed the harsh realities of America being poverty, drug problems, uncleanliness, and unsafe dynamics the adolescents and Latino immigrant mothers must face, rather than the “milk and honey” that is promised (2,10).

The responsibility of growing up too fast also serves as the connection between the lack of involvement to achieving their Latino immigrant mother’s goal of the success and improvement of the adolescent’s future. As Quinones-Mayo and Dempsey continue to maintain Latinos tend to be raised from a young age the becoming of an adult (11).
By never cooking for other people in their community they are going down a path of social exclusion. These men are trapped in their own bubble because they refuse to venture out.

School shouldn’t raise the dropout age because at age 18 people are an adult, parents don’t see truancy as an issue, and don’t have enough money to support their kids in higher education. There are many kids in the U.S that don’t have money to go to school. For
Also, forcing students to stay in school when they don’t want to be there can cause problems for teachers and other students. Additionally, raising the age for exiting pre-graduation may not stop all dropouts. Some children cannot either afford to go to school or must get a job to help out their family because they cannot afford transport or food for school.

Most foreigners don’t understand Americans attitude towards time thinking that Americans are not able to live the precious moments of life because they try to save their time and use it for necessary things whenever possible.
