"the Taming Of The Shrew" And Fathers Raising Children - 527 words
The Taming of the Shrew gives us a couple of very distinct variations in ways that fathers raise their daughters and the way fathers raise their sons. One of the earliest examples is with regard to male and female education. Early in the play we are introduced to Lucentio who has arrived in Padua with his servant Tranio to haply institute a course of learning and ingenious studies . . . .(act one, scene one, line eight). Lucentio seek to find an education that could not be received in Pisa but only in a delightfully art filled city like Padua. This type of study abroad was encouraged by fathers of this time frame. Women, on the other hand, were only to receive what little education that woul ...

North Vs South - 831 words
In the early American colonies, the south and the north developed into two distinctly different colonies. Although their origins were both from Europe, their customs and living habits became so different that it would play a major role in Americas history. There are many reasons why these differences occurred but only a few major reasons stand out. Religion, greed and the composition of the colonies are some of the major reasons why the north and south grew to be so different in the late 1600s. Different religions in specific colonies varied, but the people from the New England region were generally more devoted to their religious beliefs, whereas people from the south felt religion wasnt as ...

Immigration does not hurt the Economy The other day in economics class someone (no names) mentioned that immigration was bad for the economy. Although I had another topic lined up I decided that I write an entire paper based purely on my opinion on the subject. Which is, I totally disagree. Since the founding of the colonies people have come here from every country on earth. Whether it be escaping an oppressive government, or just to find a general better way of life, people immigrate to the United States. Some people say that when an immigrant comes here, they are not used to our way of life, and therefore throw off our way of life and economy. They say that they cause more harm to the stab ...

Parenting teenagers can be a difficult thing, but it doesnt have to be if it is approached correctly. There are four major parts in parenting.

Discriminationlearned Through Experiece Working Through A Single Mothers Eyes - 1,320 words
The most significant work experience that I have encountered was becoming a single mother, because it taught me a lesson in discrimination, and how society judges people. Many people do not realize all the discrimination occurring to single parents each day. The census bureau states that 27% of the households in the United States are single parent households. It irritates me to see how cruel society can be to judge a person, and make them feel as if committing a crime, because they are single parents. Would it be better to be married to an abusive spouse, or get away from a bad situation to become a single parent? I would rather be a single parent, than to put either of my children in a situ ...

This is hard to do and for many people, very short sighted. Trying to decide on what to do with your life in one big step is what frees people from making positive changes. It's easier to learn about yourself and the world a little at a time and begin choosing smaller pieces to your career and lifestyle.

Gay Marriages - 700 words
The constitution states that all men are created equal. If this is true, then why is there so much controversy involving a person's sexual preference? Martin Luther King said it best when he stated that everyone has a dream. Why then rain on someone's dream when all they want to do is love each other? Homosexuals are fighting for what they deserve: the freedom that every citizen has the right to love whoever they want to. Let us discuss what gay relationships are really all about. The stereotype has it that homosexuality is only about "dirty" sex. On the other hand, homosexuality is merely a preference and much more about love and affection. All relationships, including gay ones, are based o ...

Attachment Parenting - 1,307 words
Last April, a giant news story was on every news channel and was on the covers of many newspapers and magazines for weeks. This nightmare of the Columbine massacre impacted citizens across the nation. What compelled Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold, two young teenage boys, to open fire on an innocent high school, killing thirteen people and then, killing themselves? What were they thinking? Who is to blame? Do we blame the music they listened to, the video games they played, the high school cliques they were not a part of? No one may ever know who or what is to blame, but one group of parents interviewed by 20/20 claim to have an explanation for these seemingly unexplainable phenomena. They say ...

Parents Responsibilities For Children Crimes - 353 words
Parenting is such a complex area involving efforts to help and change children. Many parents had little advanced warning of what an enormous task raising a child really would be. To produce happy well adjusted energetic self- controlled, friendly, achieving children parents have to show them more love, give them more praise than criticism, more rewards than punishment. Children need to be guided, corrected, and given high goals, values, responsibilities depending on the childs abilities and needs. They need helping becoming thoughtful of others. Many people theorize that it has to do with one-parent homes without adequate child supervision. Others blame it on movies and TV. Others say that s ...

Review Of Good Wives - 362 words
Today, women are an intricate part of our working society. There are more women holding full-time jobs than ever before. A women's role is just not in the house; it extends far beyond into the working world where women are even holding positions such as chief executive officers of Fortune 500 Companies. When did this change occur? Was it before or after World War II or was in the 1960's when women battled against suffrage, or did the change ever really occur? Have women always been characterized by washing dishes, cooking dinner, and raising children. Surprisingly a women's role in pre-colonial America was multifaceted. After reading Laurel Thatcher Ulrich's Good Wives, we learn that women o ...

Marriage Versus Living Together - 617 words
Most sociologists define marriage as a socially approved mating relationship with many variations based on social norms. Although marriage is still considered the norm, it has become an optional lifestyle for greater numbers of people to maintain non-marital households. One of the most widespread lifestyle trends among non-marital households is that of cohabitation. By definition cohabitation is a living arrangement in which two people who are not related and not married live together and usually have a sexual relationship. According to Chuck Colsen in his book Cohabitation Its Training for Divorce, in 1960 there were ninety married couples for every one cohabitating. If the present trend c ...

Homeward Bound - 922 words
Homeward Bound differs from the other works read to this point in that it is a social history. The author, Elaine Tyler May, looks at statistics derived from marriage and family patterns, and then attempts to show how the politics of the Cold War impacted people's decisions about when to marry, how many children to have, and whether to be a one- or two-income family. In May's opinion, the politics of the Cold War determined, to a large extent, how people of childbearing age made decisions regarding their family lives. In the introduction, May identifies the historical problem Homeward Bound attempts to solve: the post-war baby boom. She notes that historians have looked at the post-war baby ...

Agreeing With Strict Parents - 551 words
Every day, thousands of babies are delivered at hospitals around the world. At the same time, the parents of these newborn must decide and begin the "rearing" process which will effectively guide their children from infancy to adulthood. Many adults opt toward leniency and allow their children to both partake in crucial decisions and learn from their self-made mistakes. Other parents more actively mold their children into responsible adults with a combination of strict rules and constant supervision. As adults, many of the most sought after employees are those with either military or business /industry training (such as the Xerox or IBM program), which emphasize success traits such as humili ...

Monogamy - 1,458 words
In this society, it is usually assumed that one is either single or in some form of monogamous relationship. At best, it is sometimes considered acceptable to play the field if one is not in a committed relationship. If one is in a committed relationship, it is with one person only, and any sexual and/or romantic involvement outside the relationship is cheating. Both of these situations, playing the field and cheating are still often subject to the classic double standard of being more acceptable for men and women. Long before written history, primitive clans and tribes were living within small, highly inter-dependent social structures. Many of these groups had some type of ceremony marking ...

Gay Rights To Marriage - 1,934 words
My aunt, who lives in Missouri, has had a loving partner for about four years. They are both lesbians and want to get married someday when the law allows. I asked them to send me a letter on some of their thoughts on same-sex marriage. Out of her four-page letter I pulled this reply out, "If two people of the same sex choose to make a life together I feel that they should have the same rights as a man and women would have once they are married, but the real kicker is.... That a man and women can live together X number of years and can be considered by common law as a legal husband and wife. So for two couples of the same sex we should have the same rights as a man and woman does. For example ...
