You do something above and beyond there will be a reward, you do something you know you are not supposed to do and there will be a negative consequence. This instills the idea of right and wrong. It prevents them from believing every action they take in the right direction earns a reward, but also lets them know that is they fall in their behavior that they will be reprimanded for their actions. Most parents from the study this book is based off of believed this was the option they thought they were using. However after discussing with other parents they found that they had flawed their own parenting plan by not being consistent enough with either of the
Donna Woolfolk Cross explains in her article, "Propaganda: How Not to Be Bamboozled" that propaganda shapes our attitudes on thousands of subjects by tactics such as name-calling which "consists of labeling people or ideas with words of bad connotation" (Cross 210). Aunt Lydia uses name-calling by stating that these women were lazy sluts and explains how important and how much better childbirth is in Gilead in comparison to the old days. Her manipulative speech is what blocks the handmaids from thinking, only to react unquestioningly. Cross's article explains that glittering generalities "try to get us to accept and agree without examining the evidence" (Cross 211). Aunt Lydia's use of glittering generalities and convincing tone of voice makes these women accept whatever she defines them as, giving no reason to think otherwise.
Because your partner is the person you have power over and by using deception they can’t truly see what you are doing, so they go on not doing anything bad because they don’t know if they can see you but they might be watched. Especially if you are a couple who always has to know where each other is. A synonym for deception is bad faith which is really spot on for what she is talking about in her essay because that’s what adultery is just plain old bad faith. And if you have this power of deception you are also somewhat harnessing the power of the panopticon. Deception is just another agency where you can lose power without even knowing it because of your ability to not see what is going
This is how Emerson sees consistency; he is very much against it and looks down upon those who do not change their minds. Honesty has a lot to do with the consistency part of Emerson’s piece. Many people may be afraid to be inconsistent because they fear others will fear they are being dishonest. They have an opinion on something one day, and then the next it is changed. Some can see this as being dishonest and many people in society fear this.
Over the years women have fought long and hard to be able to obtain and maintain legal rights and privileges that the male gender is born into. Females were molded and primed to play the part as an obedient wife and mother with instruction that your thoughts and opinions are kept to yourself. The perseverance of brave women helped today’s generation of women such as myself have the same equal rights as that of men. With all things you must have a burning passion in the pit of your belly to want to advance and defeat the injustice of this world. In order to put laws into effect there must be a group of people who all agree that new laws should be implemented because of majority vote.
The nurse is avoiding asking Brigite about the readings of the vision tests (Hansten, & Jackson, 2009). By re-administering the test, the nurse is lowering her self-esteem, and self-confidence. She will harbor bad feelings and thoughts about the incidence, which can lead to emotional dishonesty to communication with Brigite. Passive behavior is the avoidance of responsibility and loses’ the opportunity to develop skills in managing conflicts and resolving negative issues. The issue of whether the vision tests were accurate will not be solved.
2). Instead of searching for a better educational environment, students look for better tests numbers. Lang Wood goes on by stating “Students can easily become discouraged and negative about education in general, which affects their learning ability” (par. 2). In addition to what Lang Wood believes, Stephens claims, students who are taking the test suffer from stress in result of worrying about passing it.
‘I understand’ is another way to kill communication especially when this statement is made during a conversation surrounding a sensitive topic like death, illness, etc… The last noted trap is ‘Yes, but’ and this is more argumentative than anything. Others know that these words usually mean no and people tend to tune out everything that has been said up until the
The results I received from myself were those of embarrasment, awkwardness, and even fear. They showed how someone might feel when they know they are doing something against the norms. Although most of the time the person going against the norms will not show those feelings. The same cannot be said about the
It is surely wrong and unfair to punish a child for responding in a natural way to having important needs neglected. For this reason, punishment is not only ineffective in the long run, it is also clearly unjust. 3. Punishment distracts the child from learning how to resolve conflict in an effective and humane way. As the educator John Holt wrote, "When we make a child afraid, we stop learning dead in its tracks."
