Nathaniel, a black youth from Pontiac, Michigan grew up without a father. This is why I strongly believe he did so of the things he did because he somewhat felt like he was alone and he just wanted to be notice. He never learned the responsibility of his actions but his mother tried to get him help but no one would help her because she knew that her child would get into serious trouble if she didn’t. People would also say Nathaniel’s case, it can be said that his lack of a positive role[->0] model, or father figure lead to his criminal activities. His mother, Gloria, was struggling to raise three children by herself.
She forced him to sleep in the garage. When she and the family were eating dinner she would have him sit in a prisoner of war position, and watch everyone eat. Some days Dave had to go days without eating because, his mother wouldn’t allow him to do so. Then after everyone was through eating she would make Dave do all of the dinner dishes, and pick up everyone’s mess in a limited amount of time. If he completed his chores he would get to eat the families left overs.
Her parents are avid drug addicts and alcoholics who will not lay the bottle down long enough to see that she gets a bath at night and that her homework is done. They selfishly lay in bed come morning instead of feeding her and getting her off to school, she dare not wake them for fear she
In Leave It to Beaver to find the “ideal” family like June and Wards, a family with two parents. They show you another family called the Mondello, a family with two parents but, it always seems like the Mr. is out of town, making it seem like a single parent home. Many tines does Ms. Mondello ask the Cleavers for help parenting her son on her own. It made it seem like single parent homes always had problems and that they child was always on trouble. Back in the 1950s single parents home were considered taboo, you rarely ever saw it, that and interracial couples were never shown on Leave It to Beaver, nor were those who were part of the lgbt community.
When Alice was eight years old, she wore boyish clothes and played with her older brothers who carried not "real" guns. One day she was blown in her right eye by the little toy her brothers used to play. Walker was told not to tell anything about the gun to her parents.

This promotes positive social interaction between students and parents. By opening up this communication at home students and parents can learn to communicate. Another great example of positive social interaction is when Mr. Collet has students develop the homework information on the board together. This helps student’s gain confidence with peers by being able to share their ideas on the subject. Children do many things when interacting with one another; some are appropriate, some are not.
After reading articles “What Does It Mean to Say a School Is Doing Well, by Eisner” and “What Does It Mean to Educate the Whole Child, by Nodding”, I tend to agree with Nodding and support that focusing on the whole child and their motivation allows learning to be more effective. We currently live in a society that requires students to be prepared to think both critically and creatively and it begins at a very young age. They have to learn how to attain massive amounts of information, solve difficult problems and survive in an ever evolving society. A foundation in reading, writing and arithmetic has always been the subjects that support lifelong success. When I was a child, these 3 subjects were the main focus in the classroom.
Rita, Sam’s lawyer, doesn’t have a very good relationship with her son Willy. This is simply because she does not show that she cares for him. She is always working and does not make the effort to play or spend time with him. Sam on the other hand cares for Lucy very much. If Sam did not care for his daughter then they would not have the special bond that they do.
Whitfield does have her family nearby but their communication is in constantly strained with period of not talking to each other. Mrs. Whitfield has asked her family for help with paying some of the bills, but they will not offer any assistance in helping pay her bills as they believe she needs to care for herself and her children. Mrs. Whitfield feels that the Department of Human Service and possibly her church will be able to assist her at this time. It all depends on that she does not make too much money to receive help from them. Communication Style There are basically three types of communication styles “aggressive, passive, and assertive” (Sherman, pg.
Guilt can cause a lot of emotional issues with an individual as I know personally first hand. Conrad also was dealing the fact that his mother was not being the motherly type toward him, and showed very little feeling toward him. Conrad did not feel that his mother gave him the balance and direction a teenage child needs to keep the moving in a positive manner or directions in their life. Beth, his mother was in a state of denial or separation attitude and chose not to express her feeling of love and emotion toward him. I can personally understand what Conrad is going through because those are emotions I dealt with in my life with my father.
