Thus, the works have decidedly different starting points. However, this apparent contrast becomes negligible in light of their common underlying principles and professed ends....   [tags: Thoreau Walden Bhagavad Gita Essays]

The Foolish Mr. Keating of Dead Poet's Society - The Foolish Mr. Keating of Dead Poet's Society The Dead Poet's Society raises an interesting question: When educating teen-agers, is it better to use the school's policy of Tradition, Honor, Discipline, and Excellence or Mr. Keating's philosophy of carpe diam (seize the day). Mr. Keating believed that people should "suck the marrow out of life" and live like a free thinking person even at the young age of seventeen. Centuries of teaching experience prove Mr. Keating is wrong and that tradition and discipline are the correct methods of educating....   [tags: Dead Poet's Society Essays] 372 words

Effects of spanking on children - The use of spanking is one of the most controversial parenting practices and also one of the oldest, spanning throughout many generations. Spanking is a discipline method in which a supervising adult deliberately inflicts pain upon a child in response to a child’s unacceptable behaviour. Although spanking exists in nearly every country and family, its expression is heterogeneous. First of all the act of administering a spanking varies between families and cultures. As Gershoff (2002) pointed out, some parents plan when a spanking would be the most effective discipline whereas some parents spank impulsively (Holden, 2002)....   [tags: essays research papers] 409 words

Western Culture and Customs Destroyed the Vietnamese Family Structure - As soon as families come to the U.S., both parents have to go out looking for jobs to support their family. At the same time, the children spend most of their time at school or with friends. The family has very little time to be together after work and school, in order to discuss family problems or schoolwork. The family no longer consults, advises, encourages, or consoles. As a result, the family bond gradually dissolves. Since the children spend more time outside of the family than with their family, it is natural that they become Americanized quickly....   [tags: Essays Papers]

Relation of Crime and Family - Crime is sometimes blamed on the family, with poor parenting, lack of discipline and family breakdown often associated with youth crime. A recurrent theme in academic research has been to investigate the relationship between delinquency and a range of family related factors. Early studies explored child-rearing behaviour, parental discipline, the criminal histories of parents and family size and income. Popular theories in the 1950s and 1960s related juvenile delinquency to material deprivation, broken homes and to the growing number of ‘latch key’ children who were left unsupervised after school while their mothers went to work....   [tags: Sociology Essays Papers Criminal] 1095 words

My Classroom Management Plan -         For many people, "discipline" is considered synonymous with physical punishment.  For others, it is seen as something that must be done to make children behave "properly".  Even the dictionary's definition seems to support this image:  "1. Training of the mental, moral, and physical powers by instruction, control, and exercise.  2. Subjection to rule and authority.  3. Punishment or disciplinary action for the sake of training."  Although this sounds like some kind of military training, there are many forms of discipline which do not necessarily involve some kind of abuse.  Many methods exist of refraining a child from acting in a negative manner that do not undermine their self-este...   [tags: Elementary Classroom Management 2014] 3900 words

Corporal Punishment - Dear Sir, I am writing in reply to the recent publication of an item on the topic of corporal punishment. I do not agree that it is needed to bring discipline back into our schools. It is assumed that a child who has been caned would be less likely to commit another offence , but this was never proved and , in fact , one theory holds that severe corporal punishment increases the likelihood of future offences. There are better ways to discipline students than hitting them. Some parents may believe that spanking a child may be beneficial but apart from being potentially dangerous physically, it can lower their self esteem, hinder their academic abilities and may even contribute to disruptiv...   [tags: essays research papers] 659 words

Anthropology - Anthropology Works Cited Missing Anthropology is a discipline studying flux and change in human communities and definitions of identity, mirroring the dynamic play of modernist reconceptualizations of meaning. As an academic discipline, anthropology demands a realization of the interconnectedness between human groups, a heightened abstraction of vocabulary and tools with which to articulate these connections, and self reflexive sensitivity to its history. In this same vein, modernism, as a movement of avant-garde ideas and art forms, draws community to study of itself, demands its own vocabulary of critique, and harkens back to the history of events that prompted the movement....   [tags: Anthropological Culture Essays] 367 words
