* Hooks asserts that children become confused when parents say that they love them and then punish them physically. The conclusion is caused by the feelings the child identifies as love. Those pleasant feelings associated with hugs. When a parent uses physical discipline, hook claims they are confused. One example is hooks cites parents claims “I am doing this because I love you”. * What hooks means by “affirmations” in the 2nd paragraph is giving emotional support and encouragement. An affirmation is really anything you say or think. One example given by hooks is that “As children grow they associate love more with acts of attention, affection, and caring. They still see parents who attempt to satisfy their desires as giving love”. * Intimate terrorism means that someone that you care and trust hurts you and makes you feel bad. Intimate terrorism relates to the topic in the essay because a child trust and love his parents meanwhile all his parents do is hurt them physically and emotionally. Hooks explains that “Every day thousands of children in our culture are verbally and physically abused, starved, tortured, and murdered. They are true victims of intimate terrorism in that they have no collective voice and no rights”. * Hooks uses quotations from children in paragraph 3 to explain what love really means for them. Adults and children have different definitions of love. She uses the quotations from children to show how they feel by the actions of their parents. One example is hooks cites children’s claims “My mommy loves me ‘cause she takes care of me and helps me do everything…...

The Lesson

...2012 Short Story Analysis: “The Lesson” Toni Cade Bambara, a Harlem-born author, embraces culture, community, and background through her short story “The Lesson”. She has the main character Miss Moore discuss the struggles African Americans have with Caucasians involving social class, poverty, and equality. For many years after the abolition of slavery, African Americans were still looked down upon and considered a lower social class in certain societies. Bambara uses language as a powerful tool for describing America during the 1960s through the eyes of a young girl named Sylvia, a proud, sensitive, tough girl who is far too smart to ignore the realities around her. Bambara uses language to establish a cultural setting and Miss Moore to teach her students how to be successful, no matter their race. This story reflects Bambara’s ethnic background and pride by using the same dialect that she used growing up in Harlem, New York. According to Bambara, she spoke African American Vernacular English (AAVE), a trait that imparts to Sylvia. African American Vernacular English adds realism and humor to Sylvia's narrative because it describes her ethnicity without directly expressing what it is. It is common for African-American writers to use AAVE to emphasize their political and social commentary, so it is appropriate for Sylvia to be speaking the dialect because the story takes place in the ghetto of New York where Sylvia spends her childhood as a working class African......

...their own lessons. My favorite ones I learned were from Hermione Granger, Luna Lovegood, and Molly Weasley. Hermione Granger is very important to young girls in how they develop and grow into women. It’s hard for girls to have such a great role model, and one that thrives to be the smartest and has a thirst for knowledge is imperative. Reading about Hermione and her love of books and being a good student made me feel that it was okay that I was the same way growing up. No girl should feel like they have to dumb themselves down, and I believe Hermione was helpful in our generation in this aspect. Luna Lovegood was great for being the weirdo that she was. She taught us that it is okay to be yourself and to not care what others think. This one I think took me until college to grasp. I don’t think I was ever comfortable being my weird self in high school. Though once I got to college I met many other odd ducks who accepted me for being me. Luna is essential in this way, and I thank Rowling for bringing such an odd, loveable character into the books. Molly Weasley was important to me because she is a mother that is always there for her children, and is not too old to be a badass when it comes to fighting for them. She reminds me of my mother who I know would do anything for me even if I was being the biggest brat. They both have that unconditional love, and Molly helped me recognize this so now I am more appreciative toward my mother. There are many lessons that......

...Charming innocent and angelic, childhood, it is a period of colourful dreams, carefree life. It is short lived and feeling but its indelible. One always recalls it with adoration and wishes for the revival of the period. As Keats said, "Always let the fancy roam, Pleasure is never at home." I in my childhood always like to go outside my home to enjoy and places I loved to visit were all the amusement parks in Karachi, specially Aladdin, Sinbad, Safari park, PAF museum, etc. The amazing rides, puppet shows, magic shows. I used to be crazy for them. At Safari park the sight catching entertainments are ten minutes chair lifting, and 'Go Aish' project offering ropes course, paintball, quad biking, indoor climbing and I used to spend hours there. Another exciting and favourite place I liked to visit in my childhood was Aladdin Amusement Park with more than fifty thrilling rides, among which crazy bus was my favourite. In the center of the city there is PAF museum, I loved to see the historic aircrafts, and details of Pakistan Air Force, the former war details, weapons used, totally one room designated for detail of events occurred in 1965 and 1971 wars. Weapons, costumes, ranks, Air Marshals, History of PAF and Museum itself was also there. my this love for Air force later became my passion to join Pakistan air force. Now recalling......

...Cause and Effect Essay Childhood obesity is becoming a huge problem in the world today, it has been the highest rise cause of obesity in a child life. Being overweight is a serious medical condition that can affect individuals well into their adolescents. Obesity is particularly troubling because the extra pounds often start children on the path to health problems that were once confined to adults, such as diabetes and many others problems. The mayor cause of being overweight in children and adolescence life is eating too much junk food. They are eating too much unhealthy food that are damage, like burgers, pizzas, noodles and cookies. These types of foods are easily available to them in school canteens and at home too. Children love to purchase chips, chocolate’s, - ice-cream for lunch.

It is because children feel junk-foods are more appetizing than fresh foods cooked at home, this is because many parents become so busy that they do not have time to cook.

Childhood

...Childhood is human's most precious part of life. A part that passes quite unknowingly and we started missing it from the time we understand it’s lost. One precious memory of my childhood is visiting grandparents during summer vacations. As they lived in small village far away from the busy life of Dhaka city. I used to go there with my parents and sometimes with my uncle and stayed for some days. I liked the journey very much. The journey was actually in two parts. First part was a bus journey and second part was launch journey. The views of roadside were welcoming. It was like a symbol of vacation I would be able to enjoy. The sunlight is the crop field, the rood side markets, the crowd in the middle stopages was looked cheery to me. Then the launch terminal came where bus usually stopped. The launches were not very big there. My parents wished that I sat with them but I liked to stand by the side of river and watched the wave goes by. Sometimes small fisherman's boats went by and I could get a glimpse of their fishing. When we reached there I found my grandfather waiting for us. We went to my grandparent’s house then. There my grandmother was waiting with lots of food. The building was one stored with tinned roof. There was lots of space around. So that I could play in a wide space with my cousins. When I stayed there sometimes I went to crop fields to visit. I saw the farmers working hard for their crops. There was a bank of river not very far. My uncle used to take me......

The Lesson

...Nguyen English 1301 March 7, 2015 The Lesson “The Lesson” is among Bambara’s best-known stories, and I really love it. It combines her focus on social justice with her interest in telling stories about children maturing. One of the most provocative elements of this story is Sylvia’s opaque response to Miss Moore’s lesson. The Schwarz angers her, she does not understand why, and cannot decide whether to direct that anger at Miss Moore, at Sugar, or at white people. Yet despite her initially rebellious response to the excursion, Sylvia’s chance to witness the vast disparity between rich and poor seems to inspire her to work harder. Interestingly, the children seem to resent those with different income levels than themselves, regardless of whether that person is of higher or lower class. For example, they berate Mercedes when she talks about her stationery, and push her out of their circle when she talks about returning to the store. However, they also become irritated at the way that Flyboy frequently mentions the fact that he is homeless. This persistent animosity, combined with everyone’s distrust of Miss Moore, speaks to the insularity of their community, and a general distrust of foreigners. People find ways to separate themselves, whether by race, income, or geography. In “The Lesson,” Bambara seems to endorse Miss Moore’s opinion that economic inequality is symptomatic of a flawed society. However, the lesson does not arise organically from the......

Early Childhood Teacher

...As an early childhood teacher my goal is to reach every child and treat them as an individual despite their weaknesses or strengths. Every child is unique in their own way. Each child grows at their own developmental level and each child comes from an environment that has their own beliefs and values. My role would be to form a relationship with each child as I seek to guide them and help them to become independent individuals and also provide them with a rich environment where they feel safe to explore, initiate learning and feel free to express themselves among their peers. I believe it is our responsibility to understand the child as a whole and customize our curriculum to meet the child’s needs. As educators we should set up a high quality classroom environment where the child can grow, learn and explore at his or her own developmental level. Each child has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. I will help children to develop their potential by believing in them and encouraging them. I will assist children in discovering who they are, so they can express their own opinions and nurture their ideas. “One of the fundamental principles in early childhood pedagogy is the importance of play to children’s learning and development. The commitment to a play-based curriculum can be traced through theory and ideology into early childhood programs in many different countries” (Saracho, et al. 2002, p. 188). I want the children to feel that learning can...

Childhood

...Sharnise Marshall May28, 2015 Eng1010 EOE Essay Childhoods On my personal experience and other experiences, Lareau's argument that middle and upper parents use concerted cultivation and working class parents use natural growth is inaccurate because I grew up in an african american,working-poor class family and I did not have as many oppurinties as middle class families did . Such as having the latest clothes or shoes, not being able to sign up for every activity and always remember on a household budget. In research to Unequal Childhood, its states, "the majority of the poorer, working class participants had either dropped out of high school or not attended post-secondary instititutions, or if they had, had not completed their courses.''The parenting style, favored by working-class and lower-class families, in which parents issue to their children rather than negotiations, encourage the following and trusting of people in authority positions, and do not structure their children's daily activities, but rather let the children play on their own. This method has benefits that prepare the children for a job in the "working" or "poor-class" jobs, teaches the children how to respect and take the advice of people in authority, and allows the children to become independent at a younger age. Many were working in jobs that did not require a college degree and had already been working full-time for several years. Some children as they got older......

...Prince plot The narrator, an airplane pilot, crashes in the Sahara desert. The crash badly damages his airplane and leaves the narrator with very little food or water. As he is worrying over his predicament, he is approached by the little prince, a very serious little blond boy who asks the narrator to draw him a sheep. The narrator obliges, and the two become friends. The pilot learns that the little prince comes from a small planet that the little prince calls Asteroid 325 but that people on Earth call Asteroid B-612. The little prince took great care of this planet, preventing any bad seeds from growing and making sure it was never overrun by baobab trees. One day, a mysterious rose sprouted on the planet and the little prince fell in love with it. But when he caught the rose in a lie one day, he decided that he could not trust her anymore. He grew lonely and decided to leave. Despite a last-minute reconciliation with the rose, the prince set out to explore other planets and cure his loneliness. While journeying, the narrator tells us, the little prince passes by neighboring asteroids and encounters for the first time the strange, narrow-minded world of grown-ups. On the first six planets the little prince visits, he meets a king, a vain man, a drunkard, a businessman, a lamplighter, and a geographer, all of whom live alone and are overly consumed by their chosen occupations. Such strange behavior both amuses and perturbs the little prince. He does not understand their......

The Disappearance of Childhood

...Initial Thread In lesson 3, the presenter discussed Neil Postman's article, "The Disappearance of Childhood". I agree that electronic media, such as television fails to show children in their place. Children are exhibiting various behaviors that do not represent God and what he wants for his people. The presentation states, according to Postman, "When literature disappears, education disappears. When education disappears, shame disappears." Children are no longer shameful of their actions, not because of be uneducated, it is because society accepts the behaviors and allows it to continue. Understanding the minds of the young will help one to be able to minister according to God's word. Raising children as if they are your own in the right direction will help our youth to be what they once were. Literature is very important for Christians and for everyone. Gaining insight on how to be a more spiritual person and even including spiritual literature in your daily lives in order to add more spirituality to one’s family can ensure that we bring the child back to childhood. Watching children act like and carry themselves as children is what Christians want to see. Children are our children’s role model and some want to reflect the ones that are seen. As a parent, I understand Postman’s point and by wanting to working the educational system, I know how easily influenced our children are. Bringing the importance back to literature in education is going to take a lot of......
