  • Parents Teenagers
    513 words
    Parents Teenagers are under more stress than any other age of people in the world, especially those who are seniors. There are so many things to do, to think of, making major life decisions, and keeping up with the trust and responsibilities expected from our parents. I'm not sure if it is the time that have changed or if my parents do not remember what it is like to be a teenager. I am a senior in high school, which by itself is a big responsibility. Seniors are role models for all the younger ...
  • Present In Single Parent Families

    The problem with violence in the schools is fundamentally based on several major issues. These issues are in a variety of fields, not any one field.

  • Learning Time In School At Home
    436 words
    I really do not think that the U.S. (United States) school year or school day should be changed for the fact that it would take quality time away from their parents and tradition away from what the people know. Quality time is the most important between a parent and a child. If the person who makes the decision to make the school year longer or school day longer goes through, then there will be a lot of upset parents and a lot of upset children. Some parents do not want their children to go thro...

  • Parental Pressure Within High School Students
    1,533 words
    Parental Pressure within High School Students. I became interested in this topic because my entire academic life has been filled with pressure from my parents. This pressure was mainly in school and grades, and in high school, the amount of pressure increased dramatically.

This has become a vicious circle so children are now growing up without the knowledge and experience of cooking. Marketing campaigns for confectionery are stronger and louder than healthy eating messages. The use o...

  • Causes Of The Lack Discipline In Public Schools
    861 words
    Discipline is something that is severely lacking in today's public schools. This lack of discipline is something I have witnessed from the time I was in grade school. Every year the teachers and faculty became less and less strict, and I feel that it has not stopped in the two years I have been out of school. There are many parties to blame, though, not just the teachers and schools. The causes of poor discipline in public schools are parents, lawyers and politicians, and our schools and faculty...
