Structured observation (strange situation) gave Ainsworth¡¦s group a better control over the environment; it enables variables to be studied in a systematic way, and reduced the impact of confounding variables. It is a useful technique to study a child¡¦s emotional development; it can also be used to predict future social behavior: Research has shown that two year-olds rated as insecurely attached were less likely to ask adults for help and became frustrated more quickly if they encountered problems; Children rated as securely attached between 12 to 18 months of age were more confident and outgoing at both 5 and 10 years old and more enthusiastic about solving problems. This technique also allows the research to be replicated easier and provides a better control means. However, Main (1991) found that not all babies fit into the classification system, although many do, this is because the structured observation (strange situation) may have lower ecological validity. The artificial environment (the Strange Situation has been criticized for being artificial) may affect behavior so that the results can¡¦t be generalized to more natural settings. Another criticism is that attachment patterns can change. The attachments may shift from insecure to secure, and vice versa, depending on family circumstances. These circumstances might include changes in the people available to the child, or changes in the amount of stress a mother may be under. This suggests attachment is not fixed component of mother-child relationships. This study was also criticized on ethical grounds for the stress it caused some children. There were also cultural variations in attachment patterns. Secure attachments were most common in all cultures. But German mothers value independent behavior and may tend to see the securely attached child as ¡§spoiled¡¨. Japanese families in the other hand have a high percentage of ambivalent children and few avoidance...

I strongly believe that the show 7th Heaven should not be cancled! This show is a great family heart warming show, that should still be on the air. Critics love this show because it is not just a kid show where there is only cartoons and only stuff for kids, and it is not one of those soap Operas where its only for adults either. Its a show that the whole family can sit down and enjoy& laugh together. The show brings laughter and it also brings tears. It deals with real life situations that people really deal with in real life. It is not one of those t.v. shows where you sit down to watch it and think to yourself this is so fake and so unreal. Parents, you don't really have to worry about all that nonsense that those other t.v. shows talk about. I do reccomend that you do sit down and watch it with your child though. These characters in the story makes you wanna think about whats gonna happen next and you will be anxious to find out and can't wait till the next episiode. It keeps you in suspense, and it will keep you intuned of what happend and you will be wondering I can't wait to find out what is happening today on this episiode. Also if you hate those shows that come on at all the times that your parents say that you can't stay up that late to see that show because you have to go to school tommorow morning and you have to wake up early,and your bedtime is that time that the show comes on and you can't watch it at that time. Well you certainly don't have to worry about that,because your in luck 7th Heaven comes on at 2 times....

When I was a little child, I always dreamed of going to college and finishing my education. Education was the only secured thing to do in my country to make money. In Egypt, getting into a law or medical school requires lots of money, and it is extremely hard to get into them. I have always dreamed of achieving my goals and satisfying the needs of my family when they need my support. Education was the best and only choice. I went to middle school in Egypt, but I did not feel that I really learned anything. I decided to take actions and complete my education in a better place. My family decided to immigrate to the United States, so I could finish my education. We arrived in the United States on August 8, 1999. It felt strange when I arrived in this new place. It was the first time in my life riding a bus in the airport with front and side entrance, and I thought it was very cool. Everything was different; food and water tasted different, and the streets looked different than the streets in my country. I realized that no one uses the car horn on the street; in my country I heard it all the time. I figured out later that you could get a ticket if you use it excessively. In the beginning, I was thinking of going to high school. Luckily, summer vacation was almost over and the new school year was approaching, I went with my aunt to fill out the applications to be enrolled as a freshman. At first I was scared because I did not speak English very well, and I did not know anyone at school. I did my best to learn from my classmates, and teachers helped me out when...

Kathryn Lasky was born in 1944 in Indianapolis, Indiana. She first realized she could be a writer when she was about ten years old. She still remembers the time when she was with her family driving in a car with its top down. "The sky looked so interesting- you couldn't see the stars because of these wooly clouds. And I said it looked like a sheepback sky. My mom turned around and said, 'Kathryn, you should be a writer.' When my mom said that, I thought, 'Wow, maybe I will.' She majored in English while she was in college. After college, she worked as a teacher and did some writing for various magazines. She wrote her fist published book while she was teaching. While following a grandfather and his grandson on a typical weekend, she came up with ideas for her next book. The book was called " I Have Four Names for My Grandfather." The book featured photographs by her husband, Christopher Knight. From her first book till now, she has written many different books varying from historical fiction to picture books to nonfiction. Kathryn has received many awards and honors. Sugaring Time, a Newbery Honor Book; The Night Journey, winner of the National Jewish Book Award for Children; Pageant, an ALA Notable Children's Book, and her first Blue Sky Press novel, Beyond the Burning Time, an ALA Best Book for Young Adults – just to name a few. She has also received the Washington Post-Children's Book Guild Award for her contribution to children's nonfiction. She says she loves to write all different kinds of books. To her, the whole point of being an artist is being able to get up every morning and reinvent the world. She especially loves to write for adolescents. "I feel the same vulnerability that young people...

Defining Moment Sept. 18, 2002 A man smart enough to create a world which once, was only his dreams. Now working for one of the most famous companies in the world.

After a few years at doing a good job at this, he became a junior executive. His new job came with an office, a small one at that. His new job consisted of hiring, interviewing, and answering questions employees had to see how they like their job.

Far Away Family "A world of opportunity," this phrase is often used by immigrants to describe the unknown plateau called the United States of America. In the instance of Irma Delapeña's trek towards America, this phrase was quite accurate. Irma was born in Manila, the capital of the Philippines. Her homeland foods were adobo, sinigang, pancit, and lumpia. At the age of 29 in 1979, she set foot on American soil for the first time. Though life in America was different than in the Philippines, Irma enjoyed the majority of her experiences in her new land. Irma's expectations for America were high, independence and freedom. In her homeland she never encountered these two values much. As a 29 year old, she still lived with her parents. She longed to free herself from the strict hold of her family. In addition, she was sick and tired of the Marcos regime. She yearned to speak her mind freely without getting prosecuted. American culture served as an obstacle for Irma, but one not difficult to overcome. Due to the weather change, Irma had to endure winters. In the Philippines there were only two seasons, wet and dry. She had to adapt to winter, summer, spring, and fall. For the first time, Irma had to wear several layers of clothes. When she first arrived, it was difficult to get a job and socialize with others. Irma was more of a tourist than a citizen. She visited Canada and Europe before settling down in San Diego. Her first job was a secretary at Carriage Trade. She thought that manual labor would have a degree of dignity, but she learned otherwise. She had achieved a degree in Management and felt this job suited her. Her first day of work, she was assigned to vacuum and water plants. All...

It was late afternoon on a Saturday in March; I am at home with my dad. The sun is shining so bright, the birds are singing, such a beautiful spring day. Tomorrow is Easter and I just baked a cake to take to church for the Sunday school class that I teach. A bunny rabbit, ears, nose, eyes, whiskers, so precise, the children will love it. As I am in the hot kitchen, working away to create my special surprise for the children in my class, my dad is in the bathroom taking a shower. I am almost finished with the details of the cake when my dad comes out of the bathroom with a horrifying look on his face and stumbles to the kitchen. He is dressed only in his towel and is body is still wet from the shower. I looked at him and I immediately noticed that his face was as red as blood, covered with sweat beads and had a terrified look that I had never seen on my dad before. Something was wrong! I walked over to him and asked him if he was okay. His reply was "no, I don't feel right, I'm dizzy and my left arm is tingling". I have always been "daddy's little girl", my dad is my hero, my dad is invincible. I knew that I had to help him and I had to do it fast. "What do I do?" Thought and fears are running through my head so fast that I think I might faint. I was so scared that all I wanted to do was sit down, put my head between my knees and cry and hope that when I looked back up, it would all be a bad dream. I knew that I had to get myself...

August 19th, 2002, 4:00pm: The first day of school. I am sitting in a classroom waiting for the instructor to arrive. The class was Philosophy 2: Introduction to Logic. There were dozens among dozens of students. Most were enrolled, but quite a few of the students were hoping to add the course. The classroom setting was more than familiar to me. My Economics class was held in this room the previous semester. The room was on the west side of the building, and since it was late in the afternoon, the rays from the setting sun blaze down into the classroom like a heat lamp at full blast. "It feels like a sauna in here," I think to myself. The instructor arrives a few minutes later. Son M. Le was his name. He looked like your average businessman wearing a suit and tie, and carrying a briefcase everywhere he went. He was a frail old man, and it seemed quite obvious that he dyes his hair to cover any gray hairs he might have. He was no taller than 5'5", and he wore prescription glasses with lenses so thick that it made his squinty eyes look big like how Japanese animation artists draw their cartoon characters. He had a nose like Michael Jackson's nose before all the cosmetic surgery; in other words, big. He had a grin or a smirk that made him seem like a sarcastic, condescending, and unfriendly person. Dr. Le asked the students to sit as close to the front of the room as possible. At first, I wondered why he wants the students sitting close to the front of the room, but I quickly found the answer. He talks very softly with a strong accent. Students sitting in the back of the room would think that he mumbles because...

The stars above shone upon me with their silent accusations as I slipped soundlessly into the window. It had taken me months to access the codes to allow me such undetected entry into the most highly guarded building in the world. I walked toward the inner door and paused, only for a second, before I marched to my fate. There was no turning back now. I looked about the room full of the venomous machines smugly humming their deathly tune, and I laughed, for tonight I would see their end and mine as well. The government would no longer use these life-sucking beasts to manipulate our minds. The possession of opinions and the privacy of thought are the most fundamental of all human rights. Every man, no matter how simple, has thoughts and opinions in some form. Every opinion held by every person comes from a unique experience and should be respected, regardless of personal belief. Despite the countless battles that have resulted due to differences in these thoughts and opinions, no man has the right to strip another of these privileges. Throughout history there have been countless holy wars fought because of religious differences, but none have conclusively chosen one correct system of beliefs. No government is justified in controlling these most basic rights, no matter how noble their intentions. Although it is true that all wars could be avoided if everyone held the same views, no one is faultless, hence, no leader is capable of deciding which outlook is truly correct. As promising as the idea of communism is, it cannot be successfully executed by human leaders; this was proven with the rise of Stalinism and other perversions of Marx's idea. Machines are made by the hands of man, and are equally incapable of deciding the true correct perspective. Therefore,...

None of us is a superman, who can almost accomplish everything all by himself in our mind, so we, as normal human beings, need help, not always, but sometimes. My family and all my relatives live in the same small town generation after generation. And all my good friends are either my former classmates or ones from the same grade when I was in high school, and now they are not in Shanghai. Also I have no friends out of school. So, after coming to Shanghai for furthering studying in Shanghai Jiaotong University, with few relative and friend here, I felt a little bit lonely and helpless. Occasionally, when I was a junior student, doing my part-time job as a home teacher, I made friends with a kind hearted woman living in shanghai, but not a Shanghainese, who is a driver, and has strong desire to learn English as a second language. In a period of two months, our friendship is gradually established. At the very beginning, for we were still strange to each other, we were a little bit restrained when sat at the desk. Whenever I presented my prepared lessons to her, answered her questions about grammars or corrected her wrong pronunciations, she showed her full respect to me, and sometimes times even respectfully called me Mr. Meng, which made me feel proud of myself. But when I said let¡¯s have a break for ten minutes, it seemed hard for us to find a mutual topic, so I kept silent, drinking my water, and she reviewed what she learnt last period. As time flew by, it was not hard to find a topic during the break any more. When it is too late after finishing the teaching, she would make me dinner. When the Chinese conventional holidays come, she would drive to...

In my life, there are so many people who try to figure out who I really am. There is one person who knows who I really am and that is my bes friend Latangela. She knows when I am up ad when I am down. She seems to be intouch with my inner thoughts and emotions. She really understands me, even though she does not always agee with me. She prceives me as who I really am because she listens to my needs an views; she is patient and very compassionate. My best friend perceis me as who I really am because she always listen to my needs ad views. For instance, when I thought that she was wrong about a situation, she ook time out to listen at how I felt about it. Then she compromised her decision. The biggest part of that ws not compromising her decision, but taking the time to consider my views equally important. On another occasion, a controversy took place between an associate and me. The associate listened to some gossip that I supposedly started. She id not want to hear anything that I had to say. My best friend took the time to lisen to both sides. It was proven that I had done no wrong. My friend pulled the associate aside and straightened everything out. The associate apolygized, but if it had not been for my best friend listening to my views, it could have been a disaster. My best friend perceives me as who I really am because she is patient. For example, when we are going somewhere andI a late, she never pouts about it, she just says "be there a little earlier next time". Also, she is vey patient when it comes down to our friendship. When we don't talk for...

People everywhere go through various experiences in their lives. Every experience affects a person in some way. The resulting effects can be good, bad, or a combination of both. Many aspects of my life have influenced my personality and the way that I live. Breaking my leg influenced my life dramatically. It began simply by playing the game I love most. Resulting in sitting on the sidelines, watching the season drift away. This experience affected my life intensely, yet still managed to make me a better person. Midway through junior year in high school, soccer season began. All year everything was going well, my year always gets better knowing soccer has started. This was my third year making the varsity soccer team. Of course, I worked hard all through winter during pre-season to make this my best year yet. A few games into the season we were scheduled to play Adrian. On this hot muggy day, we traveled an hour in a half to play. For me, the bus ride to Adrian was one to remember. Little did I know that it would be my last for the season. After an hour and a half bus ride, we arrived at Adrian Middle School. It was a half hour before game time and everyone on the team was excited to play. As the sun was beating down, the referee blew the whistle to begin the game. As usual, I started the game playing defense. In the past three years playing on varsity, I had earned my spot on the field. Playing "stopper" in defense was my goal from day one, finally my junior year I achieved what I had wanted in my soccer career. In my opinion, defense is the most important role on the field. Defenders are the last players on the...

Every one must go on his life road no matter how painstaking efforts it requires. Some people who care only reaching the destination were in so much a hurry and anxiety on their journey that they miss landscapes on the road, while the faraway destination is still nowhere to be seen. Some others were like the tourists. They walk patiently and casually with breaks and rest and enjoy various sights on the road either in wind or in rain, throwing away grievance and vexations. The life road is ineluctable to walk for every one. And it is better not to neglect beautiful sceneries at fine moments on the way. Working in a small place, living in a small room and communicating in a small social circle, some people become increasingly discontent with this monotonous life short of change while others feel at home anywhere they move to. One can only settle in one of the corners in such a big world. However, the sky surpasses the ocean in size, and our souls surmount the sky in volume, because we keep constant imagination and aspiration in our hearts. Tea in big bowl slakes our thirst, but it is difficult to explain how and why. People go after one thing for long and finally succeed in obtaining it. But it turns out that a great deal of others have been lost, and they might be better than those gained. Lives passed away feel as hard as rocks, while those seeming trifles bear permanent charms and grace. On the road of life, some are rushing for fame and gain, while some others are traveling elegantly back to nature....

Henry David Thoreau, naturalist and transcendentalist, discusses several important subjects in the self-authored book Walden. A cardinal topic that keeps repeating in the book is that of maintaining a simpler -yet superior- existence, as this quote by Thoreau illustrates: "I am convinced, both by faith and experience, that to maintain one's self on this earth is not a hardship, but a pastime, if we will live simply and wisely…" This statement is quite true and, given the provisos of living, would benefit every facet of life in some way. Indeed, Thoreau's comments in the year 2003 are more applicable than ever before. In support of what he says, Thoreau makes do with only the necessaries of life and receives a precious gift, time, for a simpler being. Thus, if society were to at least take note of Thoreau's suggestions, we would all be much better off. I am in complete accord with the philosophy of obtaining a better life simply, as life has grown complex. Since man as a whole transformed into an intelligent species, life has grown more and more challenging and perplexing. At one time it was just cavemen living in simple, however cold, adobes of rock. Then came evolution, first the making of fire, and then civilization. With this power, so came more responsibility: taxes, loaning, mortgage, shopping, competition, work, sacrifice, overtime, technology and more, and all in some ways necessary to survive. In the instance of mortgage, if one buys a house, then he or she has to pay completely and consistently to pay it off or said person is quite simply out of shelter, thus not meeting all of Thoreau's requirement for living: food and water, clothing, fuel, and shelter. Similarly, people doing stocks on Wall Street are heavily dependant on laptop computers and cell phones....

I interviewed two professionals for my paper, one being a Guidance Counselor and the other being a second grade teacher. I have found the two teachers to be somewhat different in the way they think and react to different situations. The differences in the years of experience, and the reasons for taking the job were greatly different. Of the two professionals, the primary teacher had a career before becoming a teacher, his career before this one was a jeweler. He liked this job but it did not give him what he wanted, and he was a little jealous of his wife's career and security. The primary teacher has been a teacher for four years, and feels sometimes it gets better with time, but he has been though many grades of teaching, he has gone from grade three to grade two and than to grade four. He told me that with all the changing of grades he could not come up with lesson plans that he can say this worked well or to eliminate the lessons if it did not teach the children. He has to teach to the children according to the AP. When asked about having a choice of what grade you want to teach he told me, "You can put in a preference choice of which grade you want but you do not always get what you want." The techniques used are more or less given to you by the school as a guide for you to teach accordingly, programs for different courses are given to you and you must follow them. Classroom techniques is something you need to develop, like starting the class with vocabulary words on the board, knowing this starts the class, when the children see this they know class has begun, but he best...

The Italians are famous for having very close families. One festival they take very seriously is Festa dei Morti, a day when they pay their respects to any of their relatives who have died . Other main events in the Italian community are weddings, christenings and funerals. The celebrations at a wedding included a lavish meal of several courses, with different wines. The tradition was to invite the whole town but costs have become too great. Farming families would also get together to make wine, salami, pasta and bread. Another custom was to get together to distil a spirit known as grappa.

Many kids today feel like they do not have a place to call home or even a place where they feel safe. A place where they can let go and be them self's and enjoy all the perks of just being a kid. Where kids can meet friend or grow closer to family. Many places like churches, friend houses or even relative's houses can serve these needs. For me, my grandmother's house was the place where I grew up, met my friends, and became closer with my family. Firstly, it seemed a place to call home was hard to find, until my mother had an idea for us to move in with my grandmother. At first, I was scared because I had not yet met my grandmother, and I was very young. I did not know what to expect. I grew up there from the time I was five years old until I was fourteen years old. For those nine years, I felt like grandmother's house was my place to call home. I learned so much from my grandmother. She taught me how to ride a bike, climb trees, and even helped me with my homework when I needed help. She even showed me how to respect people and showed me how take on responsibility. My grandmother's house was the best place in the world for me to grow up; I spent the best years of my life there. While there, I met my friends. I was just a kid with no one to talk to, until I went to the park in my complex where I was living. When I was seven years old, I met my two best friends, was about ten years old and Jeff was nine years old. We used to drive up and down the block; until...

A relationship between two people can have very different meanings. In some relationships such as two lovers, they can also be best friends because they share good communication. A relationship between a parent and child has a special bond because they share love, and affection for each other. However, there are times when a relationship can go bad because there is no understanding, lack of communication, and a feeling of distance in the relationship. In comparing and contrasting the two essays "Arm Wrestling with my Father" and "Shooting Dad" each have a lot in common, communicate through actions, and gain understanding for one another. First, by comparing the two essays they have a lot in common, like each essay is about a child and their relationship with their father. However, they differ because Manning's essay is about a relationship between father and son, and Vowell's is about the relationship between father and daughter. In each essay the main child focused upon gives notion to a sibling in the story whether, it be a sister or a brother. In "Arm Wrestling with My Father" the son talks about his brother joining in on the fight to beat dad, however he still never succeeded. In comparison, "Shooting Dad" the daughter mention her twin sister to compare how her sister shares more in common with her dad at first than she does. But over time both main characters come to get a better understanding for their father and how they express their love. Second, both essay shows that these fathers communicated with their kids through action. Like "Arm Wrestling with My Father", his father shows communication through physical play, instead of verbal communication. Also in "Shooting Dad" conversation between this Vowell and her father were incapable because they would start to argue. In paragraph 6 she...

A mother is like a flower that grows before the eyes of her kids. I never knew how much my mother meant to me until I became an adult. In today's society the younger generation fail to understand the importance of having their mother in their lives. It seems like they forgot who carried them for nine months, clothed, and fed them. Most children thought that they were wiser than their mother. In fact, I thought I had the key to every door in terms of what is right and wrong. I didn't tealize that making sure that my homework was done would lead me to the right direction. I basically thought that my mother was putting force on me. Now that I'm an adult, I see that doing homework plays a major part of learning and comprehendiing. One can only have one mother in our life, this shows how important a mother is. Adamant was my name when it came for me to do certain things. Doing chores around the house was not in my vocabulary. When I had to do dishes , I would tell my mother I'll do I tommorow she would retort, "maybe I should get the belt and beat you until tommorow." From that point on the two of us would assail one another until she got the last word. As an adult, it's so eccentric for me not to realize what my mother means to me because in my eyes she's the epitome of what a mother should be. Some people need to take time out to engross the qualities mother have. When there's trouble in our life we turn to our mother. When we need a Shoulder to cry on we turn to our mother. WHne we need extra support to help us motivate we turn...

Lee Hom Wang (Alex) is a famous singer in Taiwan. I admire him for his attitude towards music and his creations. I like his lifestyle in ordinary days, his casual dress with T-shirt and blue jeans, his posture carrying on his guitar, and his attitude concentrating on his music. He isn¡¦t artificial but natural. Alex Wang was born in New York. He is 27 years old and got his Master¡¦s degree from Williams College. There are 5 members in his family, his parents, two brothers and he. The family is really important for him. They support and give him advice. He has the professional skills in music, such as piano, guitar, violin, drum, and etc. In his free time, he enjoys playing baseball, composing music and making a drawing. He is an artistic, creative and idealistic person. Actually, he had his frustrations in music at the beginning. A lot of friends told him that the musician couldn¡¦t be a good and permanent career. He should be a doctor just like his brother. However, Alex still followed his will and insisted on his compositions. He does what he likes. He has got a lot of awards. You can also see him in many big concerts. Alex composed a song with David Tau for helping people get through from SARS. He likes to communicate with people through his music. For him, music is a language and a kind of feeling. He wants people to get his ideas from it and to use it in their real life. Because of Lee Hom Wang, I have the different ideas about music and life. Love music, and you¡¦ll not lose your mind....
