I’m glad that my parents are deaf because it shows me a different side of the world that no one really knows about. I hope that with the information I presented people might be able to have a better understanding to the difficulties deaf people face every day but also that deafness doesn’t always mean that something is wrong with them, it just means they live a little differently than you but ultimately we are all the
The Hearing community thinks that being Deaf limits you to jobs, career success, skills, driving abilities, and much more. The Deaf culture can still be successful in life, regardless of their hearing status. Some examples of how the hearing community sees being Deaf is: “I cannot imagine what it is like being Deaf. It must be so hard, not being able to hear. I feel bad for them.
She "always wanted to say that if it was a birthmark it must be her [Cleva's] fault"(p.44). Her mother, however, is unsympathetic and explains, "I just want her to see that she can't let this ruin her life; there are things we just have to accept"(p.48). Kate's mother tries to constantly remind her that things could be worse and she shouldn't whine. But during her early childhood years, Kate's birthmark does affect her and it is hard for her to accept. Kate feels that her birthmark is an open invitation for others to hurt her.
We pretend to feel things that seem acceptable to others so that others will approve of us.

She would pretend to... ... middle of paper ... ...ique and different in our own way. Only we can define ourselves be who want to be. One might believe that “The Yellow Wallpaper” is easily about a woman pushed to insanity by post-partum depression and continually isolation, but it is so much more than that.
This is shown when she says "You will not be fit to be seen when you get there" when Elizabeth suggests going by foot to see Jane. She wants her daughters to marry well which will make their family look better. She is also happy about Lydia and Wickham's marriage, even though they did wrong by eloping together, and everyone knew they weren't really in love.

No longer would she look into her parents’ eyes and imitate the funny face they had just made. If for some reason they couldn’t find her, chances are she would be sitting in between the couch and the wall. Light touches (like tickling) now made her scream, and she no longer responded to her name. Confused and angry, Laura’s parents took her in for her well-baby check up and demanded an answer. Not wanting to accept the verdict of the pediatrician, who said there was nothing they could do, Laura’s parents began to do some research about what the pediatrician said was wrong with their perfect baby girl.
A Response to Kingston's Woman Warrior Sometimes, I must admit, I look at my mother and wonder where she is coming from, what in the world she is thinking, and why does she act the way she does. I can not possibly be like her because, as I tell myself, if I catch on to her weird behavior now, I will be able to catch it in myself before it is "too late." The funny thing is that I am sure that she did and still does the same thing in regards to her own mother. What is even worse is that I see my mother becoming like her own mother, despite my mother's hopes that she is not like my grandmother. Does this, then, mean that I am going to be like my mother or that I am already like her?

In conclusion, while using the oralism technique for deaf children to learn how to communicate with a hearing society is time consuming and frustrating, it can be helpful if they learn to talk and read lips. Not to have society “fix” them, but so they can understand people and become part of a hearing society. By being able to communicate with mainstream society they can more easily stand up for their rights and help us to understand their problems and obstacles. An oral deaf or hard of hearing person can convey their exact thoughts, feelings, needs, and opinions to any one with out the need for a translator.
I was torn by Harry’s negative thoughts. Harry (2010) states, “You are beautiful, but if you’re going to hang around and give me trouble, I’d rather you died (p. 4). In addition, she did not see her daughter for the first 24 hours! A mother’s love for her daughter should always be unconditional. Riding along Harry’s roller coaster of emotions, I was sad and mad at first but then I became understanding of her feelings.
Choosing this for their child is limiting them to that community and depriving the child of enjoyments created by the sense of sound. Although deafness is not a matter of life or death, it does restrict a persons opportunities in life (Gannon. 2005. p.106).
