Communicating with my peers helps me trusting in my team mates to be active in the learning experience. Conflict is always a possibility but there is always a resolution. Even outside of the classroom team work is needed. Some examples are in your friendships, household, and
Values are what you want and need to achieve the goals you set for yourself and your family. Values can be obtained in many different ways. The most important piece for building values is your family. I am responsible as a mother for teaching my children what is right or wrong before, any other influence reaches them. I can only wish that what I have already instilled in my two children is a reflection of myself as a parent.
I am a natural leader of people. When in doubt, I will not hesitate to get advice because failure is not an option to me. Some of the challenges that I will be faced with will be how to juggle a full time job, family and schooling. The reason for going back to school is not only to further my education for future work but also to be more proficient in assisting my children with their schoolwork. Technology has progressed to a point where I feel that I need do something to help me keep pace with the changing world.
I’ve always tried to show more of an independent role as a student, and help others who don’t quite understand the things that I do. I would tutor other students in whatever subject they needed help on and encourage them not to give up. I would want people to look at me and see that I have the qualities of being a leader. There are many instances where I have showed leadership, but I would have to say most of my time has been involved in various group projects. I have served an abundant amount of my time by giving back to my community.
I need to set goals in each one of my classes and stay focused and put my school work first. The accomplishments I have made in the past relate to the information I have learned about myself in the self-assessments. In the past when it came to school work I had a tendency to become unorganized. However I learned to organize my work and learn strategies to study and eventually I found a way that seemed to fit me the most. When it come to my personality, in the past I always have put others before myself.
Reflection Karla Sambora North Central University Dr. Shatavia Thomas MFT 5101 My ultimate career goal is to work as a marriage and family therapist, with a focus on working with children aged three to 18, along with their parents. To me, helping children to grow up in a healthy and nurturing environment has often been a key concern for me. Since their future development as adults is affected by what happens to them in their early years, children need to receive timely intervention in order to prevent them from succumbing to the negative influences in their lives. As a marriage and family therapist, I would play an important role in contributing to the positive development of young children in crisis and transforming their lives. Usually I am a person who completes tasks in a timely fashion.
My mother would talk with me and explained to me to set myself goals, or morals and to respect others even if they don’t respect me and if I dwell upon what people say about me I’m no better. I like Nurture because I was taught to give as I may receive many blessings later on in life. Nurture is what I give to my children every day in my classroom setting. Everyone needs a little or a lot of nurturing its promising and it gives us nourishment for the mind, body and
Special focus on whether or not single fathers face the same challenges as single mothers. Benefits of social support systems for single parents are discussed. Keywords: single parent, child development, family structure, support system Single Parenting Life as a single parent can be really stressful for the parent as well as the child or children. Frequently you find that single parents try to function as a two-parent family, and realize that no matter how hard they try, it just doesn’t seem to work. They become overwhelmed when trying to wear the shoes of the non-existent adult.
It is much more difficult for a single father or mother to be an effective parent than it is for a father and mother who are working together to rear their children. The two have more time to help with homework and even to play with the children. They also discuss the children’s problems, decide on courses of action, and back each other up when it comes to dealing with rebellious teenagers (Hensley, 2011 pg.349). A single parent on the other hand, does not have as much time to support or supervise their children. The does not have much time to spend playing with his/her children, helping with homework, or any things that couples share.
For example, I have also worked in customer service for many years in order to pay for school, and that has taught me to be able to work both independently on a job or task while still working towards a group goal; in addition to being able to work with a team to tackle a tough project in the most efficient way. In most social situations I would classify myself as a leader, but at the same time I am very capable of stepping back and letting someone else take over who might have a different perspective or more skill in an area because I know the tremendous value of being able to work as a team, whether it is more immediate or part of the bigger picture. Another experience is the year I spent as a resident assistant in the resident halls on campus. The resident assistant job developed many skills that can be utilized in the workforce and helpful in a graduate school setting. Some of these skills include being well versed in mediation, general conflict resolution, enforcing university policies, developing programming, and
