A nigger should know nothing but to obey his master—to do as he is told to do. Learning would spoil the best nigger in the world!” (Douglas, 1955, p. 20), Douglass’ life took a turn for the better. This was the time where his thought process began to turn and wonder what else was there to learn. Again, Douglass is keeping the reader engaged and feeling every bit of emotion he felt. He continued to learn, by any means possible, how to read and write.

The United States changed dramatically in a very short time after the Revolution, the transition was not an easy one, militarily, politically, and culturally. Socially, the new emphasis on egalitarianism and individual rights changed the relationship and roles. America’s call for freedom from British oppression while still being a slave society was undeniably ironic, yet, the Revolutionary movement initiated serious consideration of the issue of slavery. Both Americans and the British made various arguments concerning the irony. As slave-owning and slave trading were accepted routines of colonial life, slavery would play a central part in the language of the revolution.

Throughout this novel there is an underlying push to pity or feel sorrow for the author, Frederick Douglas, which is then turned into genuine respect for him. There are several examples pertaining to the physical
If a young person has physical of learning disabilities this would also effect their ability to move towards independence as they may require a more intensive amount of support from a care giver for a longer period of time than a young person without any disabilities. Another reason may be that the young person has not experienced a settled lifestyle and has had multiple placements and lack of consistency in their home life. This may cause the young person anxiety and stress in relation to moving into independence, as they have not experienced an adequate springboard in their home life to instil in them the necessary skills to be a functional and independent adult. 1.2 Explain the concept that independence is relative to each individual young person’s stage of development and level of understanding and ability.

Increasingly as children in modern society are becoming more rebellious and independent and construct their own individual identities, many people argue that the peer they socialise with have the greatest effect on their behaviour. This idea is debateable however, as there are other institutions like the media or the family that are key in instilling norms and values of society. The ways in which peer groups socialise a person into his/her gender identity are many. Through peer group pressure along with positive and negative sanctions, it is inevitable that a young person will conform to their group’s norms and values. Firstly, the ideas of being isolated from a friendship group is a daunting vision for many youngsters, and are thus willing to adopt the groups norms and values if it means they will acquire popularity or just to be part of a group.
As a result of this it becomes much more important to teach children to learn and value diversity. If children are subjected to prejudice, it can force them into a state of emotional and social tension resulting in lack of self-esteem, self confidence, feeling as though they are not accepted and unworthy. Children who lack confidence and cannot participate in activities with others are more likely to be unable to develop and maintain positive relationships with others. As a result their schoolwork may suffer, they may also become withdrawn and depressed. Prejudice and bigotry are learned at a very young age mainly from parents, other children and other institutions outside of the home environment.
Since parents went through it they know how most things will turn out if you make a certain mistake or decisions. For the most part growing up is something that can't really be taught. There are so many different times in your life where you are forced to grow up even if you don't want to. For instance, when some kids get out of high school, some don't want to leave from that protective shell but others do. In high school your parents are still taking care of you and if you mess up they will be there to help you out and for some kids it's hard to leave that shell.
