In the article “Indelible Love: My Son’s Tattoos and Me”, Lois Desocio is worried about her son’s addiction to tattoos. Desocio’s concern for her son is plausible as tattoos automatically set negative impressions on people as they are taken as a counterculture in society. Counterculture is set of values once considered to have negative impacts on society, which is no longer followed by people. In our society, tattoos are considered to have adverse effects so they are a counterculture. However, the younger generations are highly under the influences of the body art which makes tattoos overrated.
Kevin says a person is probably a first born if he is “perfectionistic, reliable, conscientious, [a] list maker, organized, critical, serious, [and] scholarly.” The second born will likely avoid conflict, be a mediator, be independent, have the fewest pictures in the family photo album, and be very loyal to peers as well as have lots of friends. On the other hand the baby of the family will probably be manipulative, charming, and engaging. He may also blame others, show off, and be a good people person, and salesman.1 There are many things that effect this birth order in each family. These include gender, spacing, disabilities, birth order of parents, and the blending of families. For example if one family has two older kids and two younger it may turn out to be like “two families”.
I would show my tattoo off whenever I could and all the reactions from family, friends, even complete strangers were positive. I realized how fortunate I was to have a tattoo in this day and age because positive views and acceptance of this modification have not always been common in the society we live in. In the past, America has had negative views about tattoos, and the change from what tattoos meant and were used for in the past to what they are today did not happen over night. A couple decades ago having a tattoo could have put me into categories like unitelligent, criminal, or freak. People wouldn't care to get to know me, I would be in freak shows and circuses with the other tattooed people, and the American society wouldn't see my tattoo as a form of expression or originality.
Well, every day we are subject to hundreds of advertisements from the radio, television, magazines, movies, and music to look a certain way to live up to certain cultural ideals. They all tell us how to look, tal... ... middle of paper ... ... wouldn’t instead view a women’s body as something to use or abuse sexually. In conclusion, the cultural trend of objectifying both men and women, but more-so women needs to end because it isn’t healthy for the adolescents and adults of our country. Not only does it cause body shame and negative health issues in both young children, adolescents, and adults, but it perpetrates a culture where rape is blamed on the victim. By not dehumanizing a body by letting all of its physical assets determine its value in our society, intelligence may become the centerfold in what our society once again tries to achieve.
Tattoos are seen as works of arts and your body is the canvas for aspiring tattoo artist. Nowadays there is such a wide variety of tattoos with different meanings, such as, a hand print of a loved one to someone’s favorite quote or bible verse.

With the suicide risk increasing, the mental health of students is being neglected because of the combination of being burnt out and the absence of social supports. Professor Adam Grant sought to fight this system by designing his own system in hopes of changing not only his students’ grades but the idea of teaching and learning. Grant began by creating difficult tests where one’s grade never hurt another;
There was a constant change in regards of the popularity for each one. Many websites have since been closed down for many reasons mostly because of competition from the more successful sites. Before social media came into the real world the biggest disadvantage in communication between fare located individuals was time spent for any communication. For example if any company wants to send a post to another company, it has to spend their time for mailing a letter via post office and afterword they had to wait till the post arrives and replay was received. Nowadays many people such as tutors or parents believe that social media is distracting young people from focusing on their work at school and as negative result in many ways is lowered grades, decrease of real human contact, time wasting and motivation loses.
They tend to ignore their happiness and dreams to make their parents happy until the point that they could not handle the stress and give up. Most parents are not aware of this phase; they just want to show off their children’s profi-cient academic result to everyone so they can be seen as the best parents. The truth is stress can lead into youth suicide. It is difficult to differentiate between spoiled brat and people who really do need help.

This is a heartbreaking thought because the mental health community is suffering at the hands of the media. People label those with mental illness as weak because all most people know about the mentally ill is what is learned from the media. There was a Geico commercial about a drill sergeant as a therapist played in class that was meant to be amusing, and for most, I assume it was. Nevertheless, those who have knowledge about the mentally ill understand how harmful this can be. It presents
This branding makes a sufferer feel embarrassed and dehumanized; a common perception is that they should be feared or looked down upon for something they have not caused. This as a barrier that can affect nearly every aspect of life -limiting opportunities for employment, housing, education, and causing the loss of family and friends. The humiliating self-image when someone submits to the negative views held by others is also known as self-stigma . ... ... middle of paper ... ...ecting the people surrounding us and the sooner we realise, the sooner prejudice and suffering will be abolished from our society. I firmly believe that if everyone took the time to understand the importance of mental health, we would all appreciate how lucky we are to not face days where even the simplest tasks appear to be challenging, even the effort to wake up in the morning seems like a great ordeal to some sufferers of depression.
