Turley argued that violent toys offer advantages because they aid children in channelling their aggression and seen as a valuable vehicle to process violence. However he failed to address how this could help convince zero-tolerance parents who viewed violent toys as an encouragement of aggressive behaviours and violent attitude. Despite putting in reasonable effort in his claim of having a healthy dose of violence, the result would as undesirable if violence had been misinterpreted or mishandled such as in the case of the 1999 Columbine High School shootings. Turley should therefore be educating parents on guiding their children when playing with such violent toys and not exposing to children directly. While Turley provides sufficient amount of evidence from various professionals, the essence of the author’s original argument that violent toys should be seen as beneficial was lost in the midst of quoting the many opinions and research of other individuals.
Research shows that teachers are more likely to label middle class children as 'bright and well behaved' but working class children as 'naughty and disruptive'. Following the label being attached on the child is self fulfilling prophecy, this is when the child will respond and act according to the label being placed on them, so a middle class student will act well behaved and complete the work that is set whereas the working class student will disrupt and not complete the work set and therefore not do well in exams. This shows that labeling working and middle class students affects the educational achievements because of their social class.However George H. Mead can be criticised by material/cultural deprivation. Material deprivation is when the child doesn't have the right equipment for school e.g. books, and cultural deprivation is when the children

So to school you must go.” This shows us that Atticus doesn’t want his children to be brought up like he was. He doesn’t like it when Scout doesn’t want to go to school because he values her education and wants her to have a better education than he did. A third point is that Atticus wants his children to be kind people. This is shown by “If you hadn’t fallen into her hands, I’d have made you go and read to her anyway.” This shows us that Atticus cared for everyone in Maycomb and he wants his children to as well. The reason he would have sent Jem to Mrs Dubose is that he wanted Jem to know what kind of person she was instead of the way Jem actually viewed her.
If a male participates in the same deviant acts regarded to sex as the female he is more likely to get a pass in some situations unlike the girl. They are not given the same space, supplies, and privileges as males, do to this and other circumstances I do feel like females are treated more unfairly then males are.

Even though this generation might be losing some ability to focus for long periods of time, technology is helping us adapt to the ever-changing world. There are people who believe that this generation is the dumbest, but others would disagree. Some would argue that times have changed, as have the ways of research and learning. This generation might not know the same things as their grandparents, but that is because they are taught different occurrences in history, then back when their grandparents and parents were in school. Furthermore, many people honestly believe that the technology isn’t making us stupid, but it is making that generation smarter and more capable of understanding the world around them.
