The way to raise a child is different form the three texts. The topic of the three texts is freedom and love. It is how you chose to interpret the texts. I think it is love because every parents use love to raise their Childs. To have a mother who decide everything in your childhood. To parents who give you all the space you need to be free and live your childhood completely. The three texts are just some few examples of raise a child. You cannot find a guide to raise a child.

To have a “tiger mother” is the way to be the perfect raised child. It is just the mother, who thinks it is the best way to be the best raised child. And the mother decides the Childs childhood. Then if you have parents who let you make your own choices. To make your own choices and mistakes make you to a stronger person. It make you to the person you are not the one you want to be.

A.S. Neill has written a book, which is called “Summerhill – a radical approach to child rearing”. It is about how to raise a child. The third text is a section of his book.

A.S. Neill is using factual information to engage us throughout the text.

“Nijinsky could not pass his exams in St. Petersburg, and he could not enter the State Ballet without passing those exams.” (p. 7, l. 3-4)

This quote is something that most young people can relate to. By using factual information he underlines his statement. By using situations that we can relate to, he engages us, and makes us want to keep reading and stay in school. Many people will be able to identify themselves with Nijinsky. We can therefore conclude that A.S. Neill makes use of pathos.

“I have seen a girl weep nightly over geometry.” (p. 7, l. 11)

This quote does also make use of pathos, because that many people will be able to identify themselves with this little girl too.
Every child has something that…...

...How children should be raised 1: Give an account of childraising principles as presented in the three texts. The first text I would like to start from is the one called "Why I love my strict Chinese mom", by the 18-year-old Sophia Chua-Rubbenfeld. Many things have been written about Sophia’s mother, and that is why she decided to write an essay to her mother, to convince the critics that they were wrong. In this essay, she is writing about her mother’s upbringing from her point of view and that she is very thankful for her, because her strict parenting has forced her to be more independent. In the essay, she tells us some of the childraising principles her mother used on her. When she got to high school, her mother realized that she needed to grow up. All the girls in her school started using makeups and that is why she took Sophia to a drugstore to buy some makeup and taught her to use it. Another thing is that the mother taught Sophia to live life to the fullest. She was not satisfied, when Sophia did not do her best at something and therefore she taught her to push her body, to the limits of her potential. Her father has also had an impact on her upbringing. He taught her not to speculate about people’s opinion and to make her own decisions. The other text is the one called "Let them eat pizza: Parenting guru's recipe for bringing up children", by Kate Loveys. Dr Bryan Caplan is the opposite of “Tiger Mum”. When it comes to parenting children, Dr Bryan Caplan......

...children, is considered “the family”. The extended family, includes grandprents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, nieces, and in – laws. It is very upheld by indonesian so that they know all of their family members and do not forget them. They may be mutual respect and affection of all the family members, too. Furthermore, in America also like that. They have the nuclear and the extended family. It is very important because it suggests the extent of family ties and obligations. 5. The male must have responsibility for his family, especially in financial. This is the culture of Indonesia. Moreover, if a couple want to get married, the male must have a job to support his family. The female have responsibility for emotional support, childraising, and housekeeping. As well as the american, the male has been responsible for financial support of the home and family members,too. But sometimes not only male but female also can earn a living because of a financial need. Indonesian female also like that. If their husband does not have a job, surely his wife will help to meet all of their needs.

Besides, we can get knowledge about it and can understand how the American’s life and all of their habbits, too. This paper is very useful for us so that we do not get culture shock if we go to abroad especially in America. Although in every country has diverse......

The Thief of Time

...were) at the edges of one’s peripheral vision—in the ways that jam-yesterday-jam-tomorrow goods typically are seen—motivation turns out to be relatively loosely tied to it. It is easier to take steps toward a good that is temporally locatable. The existence of this feature of human psychology is corroborated by plentiful anecdote. I love my job, but I do not particularly feel like writing another academic assessment, even though that, and many other things like it, are a large part of my job. Someone may love her children, and love raising them, without feeling like getting out of bed to prepare breakfast, dress them, and get them off to school—even though raising children is mostly chores like that one. If the good of the job, or of childraising, were visible in the moment, one would not have nearly the problems that so many people do in getting oneself to do the task of the moment. But the good is not visible in the moment, and so one puts off writing the assessment, or getting out of bed, or whatever else it is: a certain kind of procrastination is a perfectly understandable response to the structure of many important human goods. I claimed earlier that not all procrastination is produced in the same way, and this is a good occasion to provide some support in passing for that point. Sometimes procrastination itself functions as an extremely powerful motivation. The sort of procrastination we are now considering is not that at all, but rather a persistent failure to sustain...

Why I Love My Strict Chinese Mom

...Section A 1. Give an account of childraising as presented in the three texts Text 1 Sophia Chau-Rubenfeld tells her story of how her mothers ”tough love” parenting methods raised her into a strong and independent girl who can make her own decisions. 18-year-old Chau-Rubenfeld thinks her rearing was good, and decided to write an official essay back to her mother, where she tells about how good it is to be raised by a so called tiger mom. She admits that her mum was very strict but that is only something she is very happy for to this very day. Text 2 "Let them eat pizza: Parenting guru's recipe for bringing up children" by Sdr. Bryan Caplan tells us a whole different point of view on the raising of children. Caplan claims, that children should be able to do whatever they want. He thinks that parents are trying too hard to raise their kids into succesfull adults. Text 3 In the ”Summerhill ­ a radical approach to child rearing" by A.S. Neill is a General Policy Statement taken from the Summerhill School’s website. Neills opinion is like Dr.Bryan Caplans. He thinks that parents are pushing their children too much and have too high exspectations. He also talks about children’s creativity, which is hard to keep up, when all the other subjects at school fill up all the time. 2. How does A.S. Neill engage the reader in text 3? The General Policy statement is taken from the official website of Summerhill School. So it would be obviously a good thing to say positive......

...precisely because there is no jam today—and we really want jam today— that we procrastinate when it comes to doing things that only bring jam in the fuzzy, distant future. For instance, I know that I’ll look back fondly on the experience of teaching in the future, but somehow I can’t summon those warm and fuzzy feelings when a stack of ungraded exams is staring me in the face (and Spiceworld is on TV again). Or, to use another anecdote of Millgram’s, “someone may love her children, and love raising them, without feeling like getting out of bed to prepare breakfast, dress them, and get them off to school—even though raising children is mostly chores like that one.” And this leads to procrastination: “If the good of the job, or of childraising, were visible in the moment, one would not have nearly the problems that so many people do in getting oneself to do the task of the moment. But the good is not visible in the moment . . . [so] a certain kind of procrastination is a perfectly understandable response to the structure of many important human goods.”19 So What Do We Do, Then? Okay, we understand why we procrastinate and end up wasting Time—him, of course, not it—but now what do we do about it? Is there any way to use the idea that many everyday goods have the jam-yesterday-jam-tomorrow nature to figure out how to get around that? Millgram has some answers for that too, couched in two examples: college graduations and (sigh) hiking.20 c02.indd......

...A 1. Give an account of childraising principles in the three texts. Our childraising has a very important value of who we are or will be. It makes us who we are and has a great influence on our way of living. Parents today try to raise their children as perfect as they can be. There are many ways of childraising. A lot of different ways also. But there is not a single answer, for the normal or perfect childraising. Parents raise their child or child’s different. The different methods of childraising has cost many debates. In the first text, Sophia Chuba-Rubenfield tells about how it was to be raised by her mother Amy Chau. The text is named: “why I love my strict Chinese mom”. Amy Chau has got a lot of critic because of her book: “Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” which is described as “how Chinese parents raise such stereotypically successful kids” (p. 2, l. 4). Because of the critic to the mom, he daughter has written her side of the story to the post. In the letter, she wrote, she thanks her mother for pushing her to the limit. She says her mother’s “tough love” has raise her to be an independent thinker who has lived her whole live at 110 percent. The “tough love” is visible in some of the rules there was in the raising. Amy Chua has used strict parenting, not letting her kids attend to a sleepover or even having a playdate, making her playing violin and piano in her sparetime. According to Sophia, she is thankful of the way her mom has raised her. In the second......

Family Value

...refused to show unquestioning obedience. In modern China, both girls and boys are usually treated equally. While many Chinese parents are strict, they are more lenient and flexible than in the past. 6.Changing Values - The Chinese culture has undergone many dramatic changes in recent years, but the family structure and the importance of family values remain a focus. Families are still cherished, honored and respected, whether you live in the traditional, rural environment, or the modern, urban city. Chapter 2 : American family values 1. Gender Roles - Traditionally, the male has been responsible for financial support of the home and family members. The female has often been responsible for emotional support, childraising, and housekeeping. However, among some people in parts of the US, these parental functions are no longer fixed. The prescribed role of the man as “breadwinner” and the woman as housewife is changing. - Some mothers work because of a financial need and not because of a desire to change their role from housewife to breadwinner. Others choose to work because they feel that financial support of the family should be shared by the husband and wife. Still others are motivated to work because of professional interests and a desire to contribute to society. More than 50% of American women are part of the labor force. 2. The elderly - Some families in the US send their older relatives to nursing homes rather than integrate them into......
