The film I decided to watch was, A Mile in His Shoes which was directed by William Dear and screen wrote by Frank Nappi and Jason Koornick (2011). This movie was very inspiring as an adult with Asperger’s syndrome is the main character. Asperger’s syndrome is a type of autism that is more of a social disorder (Gargiulo, R. M. & Bouck, E, 2018).

In this paper, I will discuss the signs and symptoms of Asperger’s syndrome through the eyes of Mickey, a professional minor league baseball player as well as how he was treated by his parents, coach and teammates. I will lastly reflect on how I felt about A Mile in His Shoes regarding their portrayal of Asperger’s syndrome.

Her life becomes a lot more complicated when she finds out she is pregnant. Farrah’s best friend turns on her spreading nasty rumors, forcing Farrah to finish school online. Farrah's ex-boyfriend, also the baby's father, begins to harass her after he finds out she is pregnant which leads her to change her number. “I would have never lost my virginity to someone I believed would treat me like this,” Farrah exclaims about her ex-boyfriend. Farrah struggles with single motherhood and has to deal with a judgmental parent who looks down upon her decisions. Episode two again reinforces traditional American cultural beliefs of female gender roles by portraying the woman as the single mother, ultimately responsible for the child, showing the girl dealing with emotional problems while trying to hold the family together, tasks and situations often associated with femininity. These images become engrained on a young viewers minds and being sixteen and pregnant becomes just another fad for young girls to consider.
The movie Parenthood is a great movie to watch. It delivers a good message about parenting, life struggles, and love. Just as grandma stated that life was like a roller coaster, up and down, up and down. Each sibling of the Buckman family has struggles in his or her own family. Helen Buckman, as a single mom stands out the most to me.
The movie Parenthood revolves primarily around the three generations of the Buckman family. The family is rooted from Frank, who is the patriarch of the Buckmans. Him and his wife Marilyn are the parents of four adults, Gil, Helen, Susan and Larry. Their four children have also developed families of their own. Gil, their eldest son, is married to Karen. Together they are raising three children, Kevin, Taylor and Justin. Helen is a single mother of two teenagers, Julie and Gary. Susan is married to Nathan, who raises their daughter Patty with the goal of educating her into a child prodigy. Lastly, the youngest son of Frank, Larry, is unmarried but has recently just discovered his three year old son. Together, the two generations of offsprings of Frank and Marilyn Buckman demonstrate Alfred Adler’s Birth Order Theory.
There is an ongoing argument about the funding of Planned Parenthood in the United States. There are many reasons that some people do not want to fund it. One of those reasons is because Planned Parenthood offers abortions to women. There are people who believe that these operations should be shut down to rid our country of abortions. However, Planned Parenthood offers much more than just abortions in their clinics. Planned Parenthood should be funded because of the examinations and resources they provide, the education they give, and because it is a low income health center.
Parenthood is akin to presidency, the parents' progeny being their country's citizens. At its heart, parenthood is leadership, and when someone entrusts their child to another, they temporarily relinquish their parenthood and bestow it on the now surrogate parent. With the "president" on leave, the vice president must now brandish this new found authority wisely, for the country now looks to him for guidance, and this form of leadership has an indelible impact.
