Their family didn’t always follow the cultural rules that they are “suppose” to follow. She knew that’s what her mother and father believed, so that was what she believed. She didn’t believe in a certain type of culture. At the end of the essay, she leaned over and asked her children if they felt any ethnic or religious identity. They firmly said “None”.
Aside from the class content I learned that I don’t wait for things to happen I went into this telling my group that under no circumstance could I lead this project but I found myself incapable of waiting for things to evolve on their own, I have more of a leader personality than I thought. How did the interpersonal dynamics affect your participation? If there were conflicts, how were they resolved? I am not shy and I was able to communicated with team members well, we had fun most of the time. Unfortunately we did not have a good dynamic with at least 1 team member which cause a quite a bit of delay and frustration, but we were able to side step this for the most part and push on with the objectives.
While all our teachers and parents have been working all our lives to equip and prepare us for this stage in our lives, it's not like when we get to this point and go off to college or whatever you may plan to do now that they will all be gone; these people along with all the friends we've made over time will still be there, maybe not right where you can see them everyday, but nevertheless there to talk to and support you when you may need. Thus, there is no reason to feel as though you are alone or on your own at this
My problems throughout life have mainly been educational; I have had problems in some classes. There are times when I feel overwhelmed with school and classes and there are times where I feel like I could just drop a class and things would be better. But then I talk with my family, mainly my mom, and she is always able to comfort me and always able to persuade me to stick with it and it will be alright. If my family starts giving up on me they will not be doing all these things for me but instead just let me take the easy way out of things. Randy Pausch addressed the need to connect with others on a level of respect and understanding by showing what happens when things go wrong in our lives.
He didn’t do anything wrong, yet his mom left him. I couldn’t help but imagine how I would feel if I were in his place. I felt that it was not very beneficial to write a letter to your son telling him that you have to find something interesting for yourself, especially to a son that is Billy’s age. I think that it would be very hard to understand at that age. To a child that age, they see their mom as their caregiver.
Wente says that students didn’t get this way themselves that it comes from parents who never let their children fail or taught them that hard work pays off instead of cutting corners. In my opinion, I agree fully with Wente’s column that this generation is entitled, but I don’t believe it has much to do with the students but rather their parents. I think most students are a product of hyper parents (as I was), which refers to parents (largely
Jim's father expect to much from his son without even noticing what could be the major problem. Of course many college students love to hang out with friends but that doesn't mean that it can affect there grades unless they are not focus on there work. When Jim's father stated that when he was in school he flew through without any problems. His parents are angry because his grades aren't getting any better. I felt like it could have been a better approach like finding out the real reason what is causing the problem.
I was working, taking care of my son as well as going to school. It is not as hard as these girls put it out to be they just aren't trying hard enough these days. I am very proud of my self because I decided to further my education and make something of myself. I am ready to make this big change and step in my life and make my family proud of
I changed from acting phony and superficial, to being honest and truthful. I now stand for what I know is right and for what I believe in, regardless of superficial outside pressures to conform. I do not go around changing my ideas simply to fit in with others. No longer do I change my personality to be in line with the popular students at school. The friends and family members that are important parts of my life recognize my true self and accept me for my strengths and weaknesses.
Even if it isn't against school regulations, but it is against your personal judgment, do not fear their reaction, and do not fight with them. If you know that there will be no parents at that “chaperoned” party, do not let them be there. Or if you feel that “girls only party” is truly co-ed, speak up. Parents have fallen under the wheels of their children, and though in some feel this is bringing them closer, it's really serving to push them away. Parents put to much trust in their children to make the right decision.
