There has always been a debate about whether are not are not children should be vaccinated before entering into the school system. Vaccinations are a means to keep children safe from diseases, while they are attending schools and daycares. Some children are not being immunized due to reasons such as religious belief, medical reasons, and side effects. Children should be vaccinated before attending school and daycare; it is for their protection as well as other children. There are many controversial issue of whether or not to vaccinate children.
This means that this theory is much more valid and so can be applied to real life situations such as ensuring that a baby is immediately given to the mother after birth to ensure that they become attached. Having said this, this theory lacks historical validity. This is because it is sexist as it was put forward before the feminist movement in which women gained much more independence and no longer remained the primary caregiver. In the modern day there are many fathers who stay at home to take care of the infant while the mother goes out to work, these children do not always go on to form emotional problems. This shows that this theory needs to be altered slightly so as to apply to the modern day.
For over a century now plastic has made our lives safer, from improving the strength of our cars, to the development of new and improved medical devices. However, the degradation of these plastic products is a long process when simply dumped into landfills with general trash, or in other cases, dumped into our precious oceans. In order to maintain our consumption of plastic, save money, and protect our environment, there must be a more efficient system set up for recycling the majority of plastics consumed around the world. Plastics are quite possibly the most important material used throughout our daily lives, and without it we could not accomplish much of what we do every day. The development of plastics can be credited for the widespread commercialization of electronics over the past century.
Garrett 1 Sarah Garrett English 111, LO2 Instructor Morris 9 March 2015 Breast Milk vs Formula The decision to breastfeed or bottle feed a newborn baby, can be a very controversial subject. Many factors can alter the decision to breastfeed or bottle feed. The choice of breastfeeding is very personal, and varies on factors of the mother’s life and personal preference.

Sometimes a mother’s work schedule is not conducive to breastfeeding, therefore she must bottle feed her infant.
Advertising Toward Children How do we know what shoes we want to buy, or what brand of soft drink to choose? Advertising is how, and we may not know it, but we are around it every day. It is becoming a serious problem, however, because some of it is being aimed toward our children. It is unethical to advertise products toward children because they are more susceptible, and easier to persuade than adults. They also do not have the financial foundation to support their urge to spend money on the products advertised.
Another health problem with a poor ventilation home is caused from viruses and bacteria brought into the home by one person brought from other homes. Springfield has a higher rate of asthma then the state of Massachusetts. 5,313 people in Springfield have asthma and over 5,000 people die every year from an asthma attack. Of the buildings in Springfield 90% were built before 1979 and 48% were built before 1939. Older buildings in Springfield have many more dust mites compared to the newer buildings in
Cigarettes are also one of the top purchased items in the world. “Worldwide, approximately 10 million cigarettes are purchased a minute, 15 billion are sold each day, and upwards of 5 trillion are produced and used on an annual basis” (Martin). Smoking is harmful to smokers and even the people and environment that surround them. The smoke from tobacco contains over 4,000 chemical, 450 of those chemicals are very harmful and even deadly to humans (“Tobacco”). Cigarette smoking should be banned because they are harmful to the smokers’ health, they’re harmful to nonsmokers’ health, as well as, being harmful to our environment; however, banning the use cigarettes could be very detrimental for our economy.
In all reality it comes down to what the parents believe is best for their child or children, their preference. When it comes to getting diapers the cost is one the biggest issue with determining which type of diaper to purchase. Cloth or disposable? The cost of diapers often coincides with the quality of the diapers, meaning the more the diapers cost the better the quality is of that particular brand of diapers and vise versa. The cloth diapers are reusable so you would not have to buy them as often as if you were to get the disposable ones.
Getting vaccinated may have some risks but the benefits of getting vaccinated are way better than not getting vaccinated. Parents need to take the responsibility of having their children vaccinated to protect themselves, their children, and their community (Voices for Vaccination, n.d.). Research suggests that parents should have their children vaccinated because there are minimal risks, it decreases the risk of their children from getting sick and passing it on, and there are many benefits from vaccination. All in all, vaccination saves lives. There are many reasons why people choose to not have their children vaccinated such as that they don't believe that vaccinations work or they don't think it's necessary (Vaccinate Your Baby, 2011).
The Great Diaper Dilemma: Cloth and Disposal Diapers Face Off The average child will go through between 5,000 and 6,000 diapers in two and half years, prior to being potty trained. It is a difficult decision for the concerned parent to know if cloth or disposable diapers are better for their child, the environment, their pocket book, and for them. Disposable diapers are more convenient, but end up in landfills; cloth diapers seem to cost so much more, at least as a lump sum. Being an environmentally concerned recent first time mom, I spent much time researching the difference between cloth and disposable diapers and found the following information. Disposable Diapers In a study completed by the Ontario Office of Waste Reduction (a section of the Ontario Ministry of the Environment, 1992), it was shown that 15 percent of the municipal solid waste stream after the removal of blue box items and yard waste is disposal diapers.
