Public school allows more interaction and socializing with other children, while home schooling concentrates on the how child progresses educationally, as the needs of the child are met. It is the goal of the parent home schooling to see their child succeed. Many parents would want to home school the child because of a hundred percent involvement in the child’s education, this is a major decision for any parent, but I know most parents wants to know how much their child is progressing on a daily basis, what are they learning and knowing they are a part of their child’s education. Most parents think it might be expensive to home school but it is not, most learning material can easily be found online for free. There is a famous quote by John F. Kennedy “The goal of education is the advancement of knowledge and the dissemination of truth.” As a parent, people around us might view home schooling as better especially those that home schooled as a child growing up.
After School Programs: Academic Enhancement or Baby Sitting? All cities strive to ensure that children and youth develop into healthy, productive members of society. Out-of-school-time programs, include after-school and summer learning programs, have been increasing seen as helping cities and state meet this goal (Orr, Bodilly, Naftel, Constant, Scherer, Gershwin, and McCombs). Parents today may work a 9 to 5 shift which requires some assistants in after school activities for their children. Some parents allow their children to stay home alone for the first few hours until their return, and some chose an alternative method of after school programming.
“The carnage caused by underage drinking in America is unrelenting.” NLLEA Alcohol is the most commonly abused drug by teenagers in America. On www.ojjdp.gov they mention how alcohol influences you to partake in risky sexual behaviors. Youth who decide to drink and have sex have a higher chance of becoming pregnant or contracting an STD. People often look at alcohol consumption as a normal young adult behavior, but are blind to all the consequences from it. Underaged drinking is a social issue and causes many problems from learning problems to alcoholism.
Schools and Society: Communication with Families 1 I believe the teacher staying late at least once a week shows an understanding to parents, not everyone works the same shifts or can be available while their children are at school. Having a handout for parents to look over was very insightful of the teacher. It will most likely cover all or most of the information given at this meeting and gives parents a chance to follow along with their handout. Also, they can take the handout home with them, giving them more time to come up with any questions that they may have regarding the material. It was sensitive of the teacher to consider any language barrier by having translators present at this speech.
It is because it is illegal. If we are lowering the drinking age, will we be worse off because kids are used to binge drinking? Another issue is stress. When parents were growing up, they didn’t have the kind of stress kids are dealing with today. So why are so many teenagers stressed to succeed academically?
A family history of addiction provides a great risk of being an alcoholic. Most commonly is it being a psychological crutch helping them with daily or life problems. The most addictive, part of alcohol consumption is ethanol which is extremely poisonous to the body. Most addictive legal drug is outlawed but many people still seem to get their
It is important at a young age they get the education and role models that will guide them to make the right decisions in their future. Children also need to be taught to say “no” to risky situations. It is not only influences that guide teenagers to drink and drive or to ride with a drunk driver but also gender and behavior. The more risky behavior a teenager partakes in, the more likely they are to drink and drive. Teenage drinking and driving fatalities have been going down, but it is still one of the leading causes of deaths in adolescents.
Children today don’t get enough exercise. Pastime used to include many different ways a child got their daily exercise. Today’s children exercise is their fingers typing on a computer or cell phone or using a game control or television remote. Other than that if they didn’t have to walk around their school, they would be lucky to get ½ hour of exercise. Having all these electronic gadgets are fine but we need to as parents, get our children back outside getting exercise like children in the past used too.
But since we are no longer considered as irresponsible children, it is just normal to see a teenager working because we are now responsible adults. Just like a student who works for scholarship, I am also a student working, not for scholarship, but for a greater cause, for my parent’s sake. My mom asked me I could help her out during the weekends. And because she has power over me, I have been influence to work and to assist her. At first, it was hard for me to work because for me, Saturday should be my rest day, but I still needed to wake up early and do the things that my mom asked me to do.
High school relationships can easily have a positive and negative effect on the success of students. Friends can help each other with school work or they can distract and slow each other down, it depends on the student’s personality. It would be very difficult to be a high school student if you had a negative attitude towards school, because you would not be dedicated enough to complete homework, or to hand assignments in on time. A lack of sleep and nutrition makes it difficult for students to function fully during class, to succeed you must be wide awake and ready for each class. Extra-curricular activities are a good way for students to get even more involved with school, and usually give students a positive reputation.
