I choose the book “Chains” by Laurie Halse Anderson. This book was recommended to be by Ms. Walker and Mrs. Horne. The book has great reviews and has won two awards, so I assumed it would be worth reading. My immediate thought was about the title and how it reminded me of Nick Jonas and his song “Chains”. However, the book had nothing to do with Nick and was based on a slightly different time period. Isabelle and her sister Ruth have lost both of their parents and Ms. Finch, the master they worked for. Ruth and Isabel now have to be sold to a new master, Mr. and Mrs. Lockton. Life with the Locktons is hard but bearable for isabel. That is until Mrs. Lockton takes ruth away from her. This is when Isabell decided that she has lost everything
When people read or watch The Notebook, they automatically relate it to the concept of romance, young love, but more than anything true love. This story has a Romeo and Juliet contrast, but nevertheless also brings out many psychological concepts that play an important role in the story. Yet, many people seem to ignore these concepts and decide to pay much more attention to Allie and Noah’s love struggles. The following paper will be describing as well as highlighting psychological concepts The Notebook contained. From Alzheimer’s disease to parenting styles and the theory of love, The Notebook has been capturing the attention of millions of true love believes all around the world. Reality is, the film also captures daily
Parenting is not one of the easiest jobs in the world to have; you either are responsible enough to parent or you're not responsible enough.You have to be able to raise a child from birth and teach he/she all the necessary tools to succeed in life. As said in The Blackwell Encyclopedia of Social Work, “Parenting is the process of promoting and supporting the physical, emotional, social, and intellectual development of a child from infancy to adulthood” (245). All parents will raise their children in different ways, whether they are very strict or they’re lenient, others can be easy going and strict depending on the situation and the way they group up will shape them into who they become as adults as shown in The Glass Castle with Jeannette Walls and her parents.
Judith Wright’s poem “Mother to Child” is about a woman’s emotions during the different stages of motherhood. It tells the audience that the bond between a mother and her child is very powerful and that it changes as the child grows. Wright shows us this through her use of imagery, symbolism and the structure of her poem. The use of those three elements of literature help communicate the love the woman has for her child and how their connection grows stronger as time goes on.
The four primary parenting styles are Authoritarian, Permissive, Authoritative, and Uninvolved parenting styles. Authoritarian parents are very controlling and strict with their children. They expect obedience form their children and don’t tolerate expressions of disagreement. In contrast, Permissive parents are more relaxed and provide inconsistent feedback. They require little of their children and don’t see themselves as responsible for their children’s behavior. They also don’t set limits or control over their children. Authoritative parents are firm and set clear and consistent limits for their children. While they tend to be strict they show love and emotional support for them as well. These parents tend to reason with their child as to why they should behave a certain way. These parenting styles also encourage the child to be independent. The fourth parenting style is uninvolved parenting style. These parents show interest in their children and display indifferent or rejecting behavior towards them. They detach emotionally and only see themselves as providers of materials goods such as shelter, food, and clothing.
During the last part of researching parenting styles I found an article in Psychology Today about “How Parenting Styles Affect Your Kids.” According to Psychology Today there are four parenting styles. The fourth style is neglectful parenting and this parenting style the parent would rather let their child sit in front of the television or play video games than to spend time with them. “Communication
After witnessing the many adventures of the Walls’ family through the context of The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, I have noticed the parenting styles they use can be best described as Uninvolved using the four lens’s from the article “Parenting Styles: What they are and why they Matter’’. The four lens’s provided about parenting are: Permissive, Authoritative, Authoritarian, and Uninvolved. Permissive parents are friendly towards their kids and have a free range of limits for them, Authoritative parents have clear rules and guidelines that they like you to follow but don’t heckle you if you make a mistake. The other two types differ from the other two styles because Authoritarian parents are known as ‘’Punishers’’ with high demands, while Uninvolved parents are neglectful and not there
In the article "The Parent Trap" by Judith Warner, it can be seen that, although a women 's life should inevitably change when she becomes a mother, there are still some similarities to a mother nowadays and a mother from the 1950s. Mothers everywhere are changing their whole life around just for the simple reason of becoming a mother. Society should not force women to think that this way of living is acceptable, but unfortunately, society has forced us to believe that these lifestyles are acceptable to throw upon many mothers. These situations are causing mothers to drop their jobs and their dreams. It forces mothers to see life as something that it truly is not. This form of lifestyle is shaping mothers to become people that society sees as normal. Even if this style of life is not truthfully normal. Some of the things that are considered to be normal are the different tasks that women are expected to do every day.
'Where The Wild Things Are' was first published in 1963 and is the first part of a trilogy of award - winning books by American author and illustrator Maurice Sendak. 'Where The Wild Things Are' is haunting and imaginative and describes how a young child, called Max, creates a fictitious fantasy world in order to deal with the terrifying reality of anger.
Throughout the story, it becomes apparent that the parents in this story do less parenting than what would have been done in previous generations. Connie’s outing with a friend displays this parenting style.
She mentioned that this parent rules the household through the completely control and obedience without question to maintain order. This article mentioned authoritarian parenting involves the setting of clear and fair rules, so there are no gray areas or confusion as to who is in charge or what needs to be done, the children always have the clear goal. Furthermore, these children more like a soldier because there is no questioning, arguments, suggestions. This is just like a military, where precision and order are used to keep an orderly and productive unit ready at all times. On the other hand, the communication between children and parents are almost nonexistent, children just do what parents told. So they tend to be very introverted and lack of self-esteem, spontaneity and creativity. Also, parents give the instructions for their child on everything. They didn't need to think for themselves, so they may lack of
This is literally going to kill me. My number one concern has and always been my siblings’ safety, as well as my own because Julie Laake is an abusive mother. Not only is she a child abuser, but she is a harm to everyone around her, including herself. Every day I’m consumed by the thought that she will hurt someone. Our family has heard countless suicide threats because she says her body is in constant pain, and when that’s combined with constant verbal attacks -- we have something to worry about.
work environment or home. The possibility that co-parenting is a goal that many couples would like to accomplish once they are married, however they soon understand and discover that co-parenting is considerably harder to succeed than they would have expected. For instance, Hope Edelman expresses her take on why it doesn’t exist in “The Myth of Co-Parenting: How It Was Supposed to Be. How it Was. Hope Edelman has also written three other nonfiction books. Her essays and articles have appeared in the New York Times, the Chicago Tribune, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Seventeen magazine. Edelman finally acknowledge that the perfectly equal relationship is virtually
The last parenting style is uninvolved style. This is when the parent is cold and not strict. The parent is not involved with their children. They don’t have time for their children. Children with these parents end up acquiring many problems. “poor emotional self regulation, school achievement difficulties and frequent antisocial acts…” (Berk 389). As it mentions in Infants, Children and Adolescents, when this becomes extreme, this parenting style can be categorizes as neglect.
