Chua and Rosin have very different ideas on children’s self-esteem. Chua states that Chinese parents make comments to their children that Western parents find unimaginable such as “Hey fatty, lose some weight” (Chua). Chua herself was called garbage as a child and she said “it worked really well” (Chua). She explains that Chinese parents can say things like that to their children because, they believe “their child will be strong enough to take the shaming and to improve from it” (Chua). She insists that Chinese children know that their parents think of them highly, and criticize them only because they know their kids can achieve high expectations.
In 2012 there were 100 million unmarried women vs 60 million married women, so their vote was the one which really made there difference, just as it did in 2008 with a 70 to 29 percent margin to Barack Obama This demonstrates how the two parties differing ideologies, candidates and actions while in government create a divide between the female vote. For example in 2008 single women were the hardest hit by the recession caused by Bush's government from 2004-2008 and therefore while 37% of unmarried women voted republican in 2004 most swing votes changed to Obama in 2008, reinforcing traditional voting patterns. The Ethnic vote has three key
In other words, Western parents are concerned about their children’s psyches. They assume strength, not fragility, and as a result they behave very differently. Page 3 They seem to have a very different view of how to respond to a “bad” grade. This is only a stereotypical Western family’s reaction, but it looks like there is much more room for the emotional part of a child, than there is in a Chinese family. I don’t think that we should jump ahead to the conclusion, but it seems like both parts
It is evident that Tan’s mother is considered by the society as inferior because of her broken English. Even her daughter was first ashamed of her due to the fact that she cannot speak good English that is understood by many people in the society. However, the significance of “Mother Tongue” in our lives is the overriding theme in the article. From the beginning, Tan struggles with her two different worlds. Being born in China but living in America, she seems ashamed of her roots and that is why she is embarrassed when her mother speaks broken English (Tan 142-146).
She spanks Sophie as she tries to discipline her, and by the end of the story when Natalie and John find out, they ask her to move out of the house and her contact with Sophie is forbidden. In Two Kinds, the narrator Jing-mei is a young first generation American with a Chinese background. Her mother has a very utopian and positive view of America. She wants what is best for her daughter. Jing-mei resists her mother’s desire to make her a musical prodigy.
In the story, her son is also murdered so that there would be no inheritance on her side of the family. It would be appropriate to assume that women during this time period, (widowed or not) were indiscreetly challenged by law to adhere to the morals and ideals of men in order to succeed in society. Public opinion and shame have a significant influence on the outcomes and success of women during the late imperial China. Out of all these characteristics and expectations of women, the idea of submissiveness and courage are probably the most important and honorable of Chinese women during the late 1600’s. It was expected that women would abide by their husband regardless of their situation.
In “The Ways We Lie” Ericsson says “I told them the deposit was in the mail.” She knew it wasn’t, but she was too stressed to think about that for now. She could forget about the deposit and get into trouble for not sending it in. Another way it could impact the future is if you lied about going to school to your parents and you actually skipped school, then you would miss work and fall behind, not to mention how your parents and teachers would react. While lying may be wrong, it can spare someone’s feelings. For example, if your friend asks you how they look, you’re probably going to say, “You look fine,” even if they don’t.
We can not call them adults when they are not tried as one. Either we call them adults and punish them or we call them kids and do not give them privileges as adults. In the article “Startling Finds on Teenage Brain” by Paul Thompson he says “A child is not a man”. How can we consider a kid who is unable to think the whole perceptions of the situation a man. A child has not enough experience, and does not have enough knowledge to be an adult.
Roger believed that you developed conditions of worth (e.g. worthlessness and low self-esteem) due to the lack of positive regard from your parents as a child. An example of a parent setting conditions of worth on their children would be praising your child if it behaves in a way that is considered socially acceptable. 4) Explain two limitations of the Humanist approach in psychology (4 Marks) Humanistic theories are hard to falsify, they lack predictive power and are therefore unscientific – in rejecting the scientific method, Humanists theories lack imperial evidence and can be seen as bias. Another limitation of this approach is that Individual emotions and consciousness are difficult to study objectively as psychologists ask the patient how their
However, because racism originates from the home, any outside influences are pointless at the Cowan 2 elementary age. Louise Derman-Sparks claims that, ”Children are color-blind. They are unaware of race and racism. This ideology further assumes that if adults don’t talk with children about ‘it’, children will grow up to be non-prejudice adults” (5). At this age children have not yet developed the ability to “think for themselves” especially when it comes to doing what is right and what is wrong.
