“Only those who look with the eyes of children can lose themselves in the object of their wonder,” (E.A. 2015, pg. 6-18). Throughout our adolescent stage, many of us struggle to adhere to our parent rules and regulations, especially when it pertains to selecting friends who will have our best interest at heart. At least for me, during my teenage period, I thought if another teenage was kind to me, then she was automatically my friend. Declining to listen my parent’s assessment of some of those females, caused me to suffer unnecessary heartaches and embarrassments. For the reason that I had trouble listening, as well as refusing to listen to suggestions and demands made by my parents to dissolve certain friendships, only created uncomfortable and hostile environments between schoolmates who I thought were my friends, but who my parents warned me against. I believe it is fair to say that if I had followed the advice given to me by my parents, I would have had a happier junior high friend relationship experience. Unfortunately, I was too critical of the speakers who had my best interest at heart. Every time my parents spoke to me about how they felt regarding my choice of friends, I would block their words out, and accuse them of being too critical of people, without getting to know the people in which they were judging. With all the advice relayed to me through the wisdom of my parents’ knowledge, I found myself relaying that same advice to my younger sibling for the betterment of choices she made for friends. But, while I was still young, it was impossible for me to see the forest for the trees. Instead I was not focusing on the care and love transferred to me by my parent’s warnings, I was more interested in refusing to hear the messages and more interested in criticizing the messengers. Therefore, I would have to say that I was during that time in my life both a relational and analytical listener. Like shared in the text I will tend to focus on the facts, consider all sides of the conversation before me making conclusions; and be more expressive and emotional, by empathizing with the speaker. In this case my emotions were negative towards my parents and more influential toward my friends I would empathize with them more because I was criticizing my parents for making false assumptions of them. Both barriers contributed a whole lot in my inability to listen effectively to my parents because I had to learn the hard way. I gave more credibility to a complete stranger than to the two people who had been there since day one, watching me every step by being my protectors of all good and bad decisions. Learning to accept your falls and your bad decisions is indeed
Evan reacted and started throwing a tantrum. During that time I thought that was normal for children of his age but then I started noticing that his behaviour is not normal from the other children I have seen before. Evan wouldn’t give me any eye contact when I was trying to speak with him. I had to hold his face to make him look at me for a second just to get his attention. He wouldn’t want to leave the house unless he has the specific toy he was attached to. His father was in denial when his wife
on the woman’s body. In some cases, the mother has to work alongside the man to bring in more income, but when the mother gets home, unlike the father who gets to relax, she then has to take care of the house and children. The third section addresses Sanger’s belief that as long as women have no control over their bodies, they can never be free; and as long as mothers aren’t free, then the children they bear can never know freedom either. She also disputes the idea that some women claim to be
were not able to score and we lost the game.
We were crushed. All the work we put into the offseason and our practices was all for nothing. The bus rides was quiet. No one said a word. The next day our coach called everyone to his office that afternoon and he talked to us. He started off by praising how far we came and how much better we had gotten that year. Then he said something to us that has stuck with me since that day “Losing hurts, it’s not fun it makes you feel weak and not good enough, but just because you lose it doesn’t make you a loser, and just because you fail doesn’t make you a failure because if you can look up you can get up.” We all walked in the office boys but we walked out young men who learned a valuable lesson.

(Zdeb 1)” Even some students like the idea of uniforms, because it makes everyone equal, and lets the students express themselves through through their words, and they can really express who they really are. “In schools where they are worn, students who like uniforms, like the way it makes everyone equal.

perception of the action and the perception of the wider environment. As the act of sharing and downloading is seen as an entitlement to all internet users, those who download and share illegal content generally don’t perceive it as a wrongful act (Eining & Christensen, 1991; Peace et al, 2003) and therefore this falls in line with the subjectivity criterion proposed by Byrnes et al (1999) which suggests that an individual can only be seen as taking a risk when they are aware of the fact that what they
the government sells.
To conclude, the government can’t have control over something that they put out there for Americans to purchase. It should be, but, it’s not because everything we have bought or have comes from the government. They are going control who can legally purchase a gun and the ones that can’t purchase them are still going to have access to the guns with or without the control of the government. All in all, if a person is illegally purchasing firearms for whatever reasons
