“Relationship impacts you health” discuses topic which I have experienced with. I was in an abusive relationship with a person whom I thought loved me. The relationship was one of jealousy, abuse, and control. Eventually I was able to leave, but with serious consequences. This relationship had consequences which contribute the present. Regardless of these negative happenings one positive thing happened ... I was blessed with a beautiful little girl. My daughter gave me strengths to overcoming obstacles, and failures, I feel I have changed my life for the better as a result of my little girl. My troubles started roughly three years ago. I was fifteen years old. I met my former partner with whom I had a child with. This man was all I needed in this world. He would sweet-talk me and treat me good. We met at this place called computer center at Battles Farm Drive. We were nine months into the relationship when his attitude started to change. He made me stop talking to my male friends, his response was possessive and jealous. One day without cause, he started yelling at me and said “if you leave me you’ll be by yourself because no other guy will love you” I believed him. Anything he said, I would do. He knew i would do anything for him not to leave me. He took advantage of this dynamic. One day I caught him talking to his ex-girlfriend, I asked him why was he with her. The answer he gave me was “if i’m always with you, I’ll get bored and I’ll leave you. My present state of mind was one fear and attachment. I did not challenge him further in this instance, and others. He was the most jealous person I have ever known. One night we went out to dinner, this person was looking at me, and my boyfriend went crazy saying “Do you know him?” Why is he looking at you?” I did not known who the person was and he did not believe me. His reaction was to start shaking me. I was scared because at this point he was capable of doing just anything. It all ended that night. He threatened me saying “if I can’t have you then nobody can”. On our way home, he tried to apologize, but it just made it worse. I was scared of him. I had realized that my life was more important than love, so I dumped him. It took a year to recover from the pain I went through after all I did have a kid with him, but I was glad that I ended the relationship before he had the chance to permanently injure me or even kill me. Through out my teenage years, I always had everything. I had security, the support of my family, and being surrounding by incredible people who love me. When I turned sixteen I had found out something that would change my life forever, I was pregnant! Being pregnant at a young age is a very difficult thing to go through. It can be hard mentally, financially, and physically. Everyday, people are faced with choices, some of life’s choices are simple, such as deciding what to wear to school or choosing a television station to watch. Other choices, however, are much more serious and have life-altering consequences. Being pregnant has many choices, whether or not to keep the babe. There are many choices such as adoption, or abortion. I decided that I would keep my baby because I knew in my heart that I would regret it in the long run if I didn’t. Throughout my pregnancy, I suffered from depression, which is the condition of feeling sad or despondent mentally. My depression was mainly due to the fact that I was sixteen, alone, and scared. I was working at this corner store, but that job couldn’t pay for all the financial needs it takes to raise a child. I left my baby’s father when all the arguing and physical abuse began as i mentioned in paragraph two. I couldn’t deal with that and I definitely wasn’t going to raise my child through it. Although I knew deep down that this big decision was for the best, it was still difficult and very painful. Just the thought of raising a child alone was scary. My parents were so disappointed in me they really didn’t…

One of the most highly debated, controversial, and talked about issues not just in the United States, but in the entire world is that of child abuse. Child abuse is described as “the behavior that causes significant harm to a child” (Stalker, 35). This harm that is done to the child can be sexual, physical, psychological, or emotional. Child abuse is also described as “the series of acts of omission by a parent or caregiver…
Look, we loved what Mattel did with Lazer Tag last year. But, let's be honest, that thing was pure testosterone. We're not saying the ladies couldn't get down, but the alien-blasting AR solo games weren't exactly designed with little girls in mind. Rebelle ditches the lasers for NERF arrows and slaps a supposedly female-friendly coat of purple and pink paint on the whole thing. While the blasters still operate without the optional Mission Central App cradle ($15), it's once you get the whole kit…
The Seven Wheelerpoints of child retail
“Make them feel grown up”
Don’t baby them, let them try things out for themselves
“Use his name or nickname”
Kids don’t like to be called “Sonny” or “Little girl”
“Don’t get practical”
Talk fun—not practical.
“Sell the gadget”
It’s the little gadgets that sell the product to children.
“Talk his language”
Address them as their friends would, not their parents.
“Let him carry his own packages”
Let them have that sense of responsibility and…
Verbal Abuse, when most people hear the word”pain” they automatically assume that it is physical pain that is being dealt with. People fail to realize that verbal abuse can scar a person for life. Parents or family members who verbally abuse their children can cause major self-esteem issues. Everyone has experienced this whether they were the victim, the attacker, or just a witness.
I always asked myself why I put myself down. If people will give me a compliment about my clothes, work or simply…
ever made. It’s a monumental masterpiece that's chock full of emotionally powerful moments that stay with you long after the lights have come up. One particular image, however, stands out for all to see as a truly iconic, and haunting, moment. The little girl in the red coat.
As with most great scenes, one really must understand its full context to truly appreciate its message. The film begins during the early stages of World War 2 after Nazi Germany has invaded Poland and is in the process of relocating…
Oates only described Connie as a girl who would dress provocatively and meet strange boys. Thus, Oates seemed to be suggesting that Arnold chose her that night for those reasons. However, Arnold Friend was clearly described as a creepy stalker who could have had any illogical reasons for picking his victims. Since he is possibly a psychopath, it would not have matter how Connie dressed, acts, or look. In the end, he said to Connie, “My sweet little blue-eyed girl," but “she [had] brown eyes” (Oates…

Little girls in pretty boxes: The Making
And Breaking of Elite Gymnasts and
When it came to choosing a second book to read I took into consideration that in this essay I would have to choose a passage that I connected with, so I thought to look at books that had to do with gymnastics. I wanted to look at a book about gymnastics because I was a gymnast from age three to thirteen and I was a competitive gymnast from age eleven to thirteen. Then I also had to think…
Child Beauty Pageants: Robbing Little Girls’ Innocence
There are over 5,000 child beauty pageants held annually across the United States with girls as young as two-years-old competing in them. Little girls strut across the stage with make-up painted on their tanned faces, hair teased into big and luscious curls, fake teeth, and a raunchy dance to complement it. There’s no doubt that the very young girls do not resemble their age when they are on stage and performing; they’re transformed into “sultry…
