8 Years Old and Independent At the age 17 I am more independent than ever and it bothers my mom like crazy. This year I bought all my school clothes and school supplies with my own money. She despises that I don’t rely on her but I feel like she should be relieved because she should know I won’t have to depend on her as I get older. Since I was 8 years old, I learned to take care of myself. My mom always had to work two jobs to raise my brother, my sister and me. I have never been the “average” kid. My sister moved out when she was 17 so she was never there to help me and my brother was too self-centered. I taught myself how to make ramen noodles and mac & cheese for dinner ‘cause no one was there to help me make anything for me. I have learned to never depend on anyone because at the end of the day you only have yourself. I hated depending on my mom to give me money if I wanted to go do something so I was employed at 15. The Diary Queen I worked at was individually owned and the owner taught me more than I could have ever wished for. At the age of 16, less than a month after my birthday I personally bought my own car with my own money. I pay for my own car insurance, my phone bill and I pay for the gas in my car. Only thing I depend on my mom for is a place to live and groceries. Sometimes I wish I wasn’t so independent because I feel like I have missed out on being a kid but I know I will turn out better than the kids who parents have bought everything for
of children, such as special needs, safeguarding children, children’s learning, behaviour, and working with parents. Early years practitioners have set responsibilities when working with children, like meeting the learning needs of a child, providing an environment which is welcoming and also they have to work together as part of a team to provide good service for both children and parents.
Practitioners have to put the needs of children first because this will help keep children safe and encourages…
commercials for those in other countries needing clothes and/or food. In the past 6 years, I have overcome many obstacles. There are many things like relationships, addictions, job searching that can cause struggles.
When I turn on the television, all I see are commercials for children who are starving and have no parents or about how a family lives with no running water or food to eat. To see the children walk around with no shoes nor clothes on can hit one in the heart with wanting to help out…
My parents met at Mississippi Valley State University and fell in love. I was born September 12, 1988 in Greenwood, MS at Greenwood Leflore Hospital. My parents were almost married two years. I was the fourth child, but the second from their union. My mom was the sickest when she was pregnant with me. She couldn’t hold anything down; her appetite was null and void. She basically was on my grandmother couch in misery those nine months. I was the first girl for my parents and my maternal…

redeeming myself as well as finding myself I have learned so much through my experience, gaining a sense of power I seized to obtain. Over the years, my journey started to become clearer. Fashion became my life, my obsession, this is my passion.
My parents had taken my brother and I out to dinner several months before the big move. They broke the news to us at the dinner table and I was so happy yet not acknowledging the fact I would get older and learn to understand more about how much of a significant…

Ruby can’t wait until she turns 18. Instead of yearning for independence, she is looking forward to the day when she legally will be considered an adult so no one will be able to put her in foster care. Her mother left her a few months ago, without warning, and she has been living there alone trying to work and finish high school.
Ruby thought she was managing just fine on her own. She worked at an airport returning lost luggage to its owners, was pulling high…
