Summary: In “Justice: Childhood Love Lessons”, bell hooks notes that grownups, with their ways of discipline; often confuse children about the concept of love. (27). I agree with bell hooks; children are taught love is as simple as giving a hug or sharing your toys but when they are abused by their guardians with explanations such as “I do this became I love you” it will confuse them great deal. 2. Direct Quotation: bell hooks says, “Being hurt by parenting adults rarely alters a child’s desire to be loved and be loved by them [parents].
Compare/Contrast Why do parents make their children do things they do not want to do? This question is asked my many children around the world today. In “Kaffir Boy” by Mark Mathabane and “Two Kinds” by Amy Tan, two children are faced with pressure from their moms to be successful and receive a good education. Amy and Mark do not understand the reasoning behind their mothers’ ambitions to push them. One begins to understand that his mom is pushing him for his own good and it is what is best for him.
An example of responsibility overload is when parents confide in their children about “adult-like” problems. When a child is exposed to marital problems, financial problems, or anything of that nature it forces them to take on a barrier that should not be intended for them to endure. They are expected to be the confidant
It is not that they demand too much from their kids but they expect too little. Parents try so hard to provide their children’s needs to make them happy and become their kid’s best friend that they forget about being a real parent. A parent who knows what is best for their child should not be afraid to say “no”, “The mistake that many parents make today is not that they’re too strict but rather too lenient”. They should discipline and set limits to consumption and teach their children the value of a
If parents take much time at work for example the time spent by Chris in Iraq, their children may end up being poor performers in school which will impact negatively on their lives in the future. So they need to be able to attend to their work and to children too because they need support both in education and in the social perspective of growth. Parents are important because they take a large part in their children growth in the sense that they teach them most of the things about life. In socialisation process of life in which individuals are taught about, customs, culture, and beliefs, parents are the main contributors of ensuring their children are aware of those matters. It is because they are the close parties to them, and it is also their mandate to ensure culture is
February 20th 2012 Character Morality Throughout life people face the decision between choosing right and wrong. Growing up, people are exposed to the consequences of bad and the rewards of good, altering the overall decision between the two. But what if someone didn’t have morals to base their decisions off of? In “The life You Save May Be Your Own” Flannery O’Connor explores the morals of each character throughout the story and exposes their weaknesses. Margaret Atwood also discusses in “Our First Stories” the early-learned morals children develop through growing up listening to stories or events told from adults and their surroundings.
Within the story there are many themes that can be interpreted; Two of which are that a parents love for their children may end up spoiling them therefore making them unappreciative, and that the more dependant society becomes towards technology the more potentially harmful it may become. The theme that a parent’s love for their children may make them spoiled and unappreciative is displayed many times throughout the short story. When the mother of the family says to the father “We’ve given the children everything they ever wanted. This is our reward – secrecy, disobedience?” (Pg.32) the parents in the family are reminiscing about how they bought their kids “the nursery” and how now the kids are now lying to them about what they are doing in it. If the parents of the family taught their kids respect and discipline instead of buying them whatever they wanted to keep them happy the kids could be much more appreciative when the got something such as “the nursery” and would not abuse what their parents give them.
When we are young our parents are our guides through life. They try to instill in us at a young age the difference between right and wrong. But who are they to determine what is right or wrong. If our parents were brought up to be discriminatory to others who are of a different race, culture, or social backgrounds are they really teaching us to be good humans. When we grow into our early teen years we start to make our own decisions on what we think about things happening around us.

This is how to behave in the presence of men who don’t know you very well, and this way they won’t recognize immediately the slut I have warned you against becoming. (Kincaid, 416) This paragraph shows how the parent character is teaching the daughter how to behavior which will stick with the child and it will affect her adult life when she grows up. All the things learned as children plays an imperative role on the decisions one make throughout our life. Girl was being informed on the road ahead of her life and character wanted her to be
