Growing up is often a drawn out process. Although in some cases blossoming into a knowledgeable and self sufficient person may only take on experience, maybe even a sentence or a glace of something different and your whole life and perspective will adjust. The short story “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” by Joyce Carol Oates demonstrates the struggle of life and the decisions people are faced with everyday. We learn early in the story that Connie does not appreciate, nor does Connie like, or have any kind of relationship with her mother, father, or sister. ”Her parents and sister were going to a barbecue at an aunt’s house and Connie said no, she wasn’t interested, rolling her eyes to let her mother know just what she thought of it.” Connie obviously puts a wall between her and her family.
An Analysis of the Themes that Illustrate the Unsuccessful Parent-Child Relationship in “Write me Sometime” When relationships fail or they are on the path to failure, people attempt to restore them through old habits. This can happen in any type of relationship, but there seems to be more effort when the unsuccessful relationship is between a parent and their child. There is never one specific reason for this failure, but there are usually a variety of problems that build up over time. In Taien Ng-Chan’s short story “Write Me Sometime”, a girl is having trouble connecting with her father. As an adult, she is reminiscing about her childhood lunch dates with her father, which she enjoyed.
Feeling that she needed to socialise, Cady’s parents enrolled her to North Shore High school. On her first day of North Shore High school, Cady was often left out and she was unfamiliarised with the school’s surroundings and people. On the second day, Cady had become friends with two social outcasts, Janis Ian and Damian. Janis and Damian had misled Cady into thinking that they were taking to G14 for her Health Education class but instead, they brought her to the back of the school where they skipped class. This is where Janis had stated that they were friends and Cady stayed with them.
Could this be the reason there are so fewer homeless children in Connecticut? I think they still have some work to do on providing food and educational resources to the poor families in their state, but they did earn the number 1 ranking. Texas, on the other hand, has a huge problem on their hands and, as of the date of this report, has no plan in place to reduce their number of homeless children and families. Their inadequate planning and lack of available shelter space is likely only making their problem worse. From the research, I think it is also fair to say that Texas has an immigration issue as 46 percent of their homeless children are Hispanic, a larger number than any other state in America.
Johnny Martin Paper 4 English 5A 9/12/2011 K. Crews Summary: What We Miss About the 1950’s Stephanie Coontz's essay “What we really miss about the 1950's” is an essay that talks about a poll taken in 1996 by the Knight-Ridder news agency. That poll showed that more Americans preferred the 1950's as the best decade for children to grow up in. Coontz doesn't believe that the 50’s are a decade for people to remember about, except for financial reasons and better communication within families. Coontz doesn't believe in it as the best decade because of the votes, the 50's only won by nine percent, and especially not by African Americans. She doesn't believe that the 50's should be taken 'literally' because from the 50's there were changes in values that caused racism and sexism discrimination against women.
She supports her family at home and is currently studying English and Computer Literacy at Tafe. Class was shown through both texts as Sally’s family and the Mums struggled with money and were challenged in providing food and ﬁnding jobs without any money. Class isn’t all about money, it’s also about how you present yourself by what you wear and the way you talk based on your education and self of belonging to a particular category. In Chapter seven it focuses on how easily Sally is labeled by the way she dresses and by her heritage written in autobiographical writing. In “Villawood Mums” the camera was a mid-shot focusing on the two Mums talking about they struggles and
You may wish to use the poem ‘Look Closer’ to assist with stimulating discussion about attitudes and behaviours (also available as a DVD – ‘What do you See’) An example of part of a case study could be: Case Study 1 Jacintha is 91 and has dementia with Lewy Bodies. She remains fairly independent, although needs some assistance with bathing, due to her reduced mobility. She should use a walking stick when walking around the home, but sometimes forgets.

(To be continued) Case Study 2 Patrick is 47 and has Alzheimer’s disease.
When dinner was ready I tried to sit and talk to her but she stood up with her plate and gone she went to her room. I could not believe this atrocity was happening to me. Eventually, we had to go together to family reunions but this didn’t stop her from not talking to me. Sometimes my mother would not wait for me to come out of school and she would leave me home alone to go eat lunch with her sisters. This looked like revenge to me against what I had said before when I was sixteen.
Feeling like she is not good enough, Rayona goes out of her way to get his attention and make him want to be with her.
