One in three Americans live without a dad; that’s 24 million children. A good father is not one who pleases his children by giving in and allowing them to do whatever they want. A truly good father is one who is not afraid to discipline his children, but yet does it in a loving manner. When a woman is choosing the right husband, not only is she picking a man to spend the rest of her life with, she is picking a man to be the father to her children. Most importantly, a man needs to respect his wife.
In addition, Illinois State University offers many classes to assist me in meeting my career goals. ISU is also not far from my hometown, Libertyville. I would like to attend a college close to home and one that allows me to be independent as well. ISU is just the right size for me; the college is a good median between a large school and a small, private school. When I visited the campus in July, I had a chance to view the dorms, which were clean and impressive.
I am willing to give up my spare time to set a good example for my family by going to college. The only thing that annoys me the most is when you hear girls out there talking about how they could not finish high school because they were teenage mothers. A little tip is I was a teenage mother and graduated from high school. I had a son and was pregnant for my daughter while I was going to school and I graduated. I was working, taking care of my son as well as going to school.
Not only would I be leaving me brother and my father behind, I would be leaving all of my friends behind too. I was depressed at first, but once I was settled into my new school and made friends it was a little easier. As my mom promised me before moving to North Carolina, we would travel back and visit at least once a month. During these visits every month, I always had a list of things to catch my father up on. I would tell him what was going on in school, how good I was doing in sports, or how bad of a play I made.
My father Kenneth Sprick fled to America in September of 1939 to escape Nazi Persecution. He has been sending us money in helping us to save up enough money for us to travel to America. July 12th 1944 Today my family and I collected enough money to go overseas to America. I have been waiting for this moment a long time, ever since the Nazis have been raiding the houses in our neighborhood. My mom and brother can’t wait to get to America so they can get a decent paying job and so they can feed me and Brad, my younger brother.
Even though he loves Edna and his sons, I don’t think he is considered as a good husband since he knows very few about Edna’s true feeling. I think this because he spends slight time with them, and leaves the family behind and goes out saying that he is always busy and has to go away for business or spends more time with his friends. As my point of view, I think it is not fair for a guy to treat a wife or his family like this and it seems like he is just a selfish person to me. Since marriage during that time of period was very harsh for women I think she was able to survive by meeting people. The time period where Edna was living was in a very strict condition for the women, especially for house wives.
CHAPTER ONE In chapter one, Siddhartha learned that the love of his family would not always be enough to satisfy him. In order for him to lead a fulfilling life, he must venture out on his own and discover what really makes him happy, and what his life’s purpose is. In my life, I’ve learned that if your heart tells you that something you’re doing is morally wrong, do not do it by any means. I’ve been in way too many situations where I’ve regretted not listening to what my heart had to tell me. If you feel that something you’re doing could possibly be wrong, it is best to stop what you’re doing a really think about your choices CHAPTER TWO In chapter two, Siddhartha learned the ways of the Samanas, which is the group he chose to follow.
Families are often influenced by the media portrayal of the way women should run their families. So this has put women in a bad position to get jobs and make as much as men do. If the woman does not take care of her family how she is expected she is viewed as a bad parent, even though the father is the exception to these expectations as a
I viewed myself as a quitter or failure; I couldn’t finish something again. Then my second child came into the world, and I sat back and looked at my children, my family, and my friends that look up to me. How can they lookup to someone that couldn’t even finish her college classes? [INTRODUCING THE SUBJECT]So after many hours of consideration, I have decided to return to college in hopes to obtain my degree for several reasons. Even though returning to school will change many aspects in my family and my lives, I have chosen to return to school to finish what I started, to achieve my dreams, and to lead by example.
How was all this possible? He had positive influences around him causing him to be shaped into a smart, successful young man. His family deeply cared about his success and did not want to see failure in his future. In contrast, the other Wes Moore did not have many positive influences in his life. His influence was his brother Tony that was “the closest thing he had to a role model” (page 72) Tony was a troubled child and their mother would depend on him to talk Wes out of drug dealing and fighting when Tony did those activities himself.
