His brother, Tony was a drug dealer who wish he could go back in time and make the right decisions and he wanted Wes to be different than him. He didn’t want his brother to end up like him and even after he tried everything to keep Wes away from drugs, nothing worked and he gave up. As you can see, both families are very different, Wes (the author) has a family who wants him to have a bright future. Most importantly, a family who responds fast because right after his mother saw him falling down the wrong hill she didn’t hesitate to do something about it. The other Wes isn’t as lucky, as I believe since his mother already had so much pressure over keeping her job and her son Tony being involved in drugs.
She did not agree with my dad’s opinion, then again it was not the first time that happened which was most probably the cause of the divorce. Anyway, she believed that I should stick and focus in my education only. She had a good point, “you start working, and get money and end up losing interest in school because you start liking the money. Then you will see that getting an education and going to college as a waste of time.” Now I’m not saying working while studying is not a good thing, I know plenty people do it and still end up successful. Nor am I judging my own ability to be able to excel on both, but I saw my mother had a good point.
It has been instilled in him from his father that the path to happiness is through working hard and earning one’s own success. Despite his best efforts, he could not help Biff realize that he has to study sometimes and put in effort towards future happiness: “Just because he printed University of Virginia on his sneakers doesn’t mean they’ve got to graduate him” (20). Bernard sees through what Willy has been teaching his boys for their whole life. One cannot get their way in life by cheating the system and expecting to get away with it every time. Bernard is trying to teach Biff that one cannot just state they want success, and it will immediately be granted.

Although the passage argues that students are to blame for the mediocrity, but a deeper analysis is required. If all things are equal, children are a reflection of their parents so if they taught them to just get by, then the child will not have the motivation to go beyond the already lacking education system. Therefore when the student gets to high school his ways are deeply engraved in their character making visible change difficult. Sooner or later they watch their peers get by with doing the minimum intellectual work and getting the most from their other activities. After all, the student does not understand that minimum wage pays for a couple of things, but does not provide for a family.

Education is important in many ways it helps us become better people to be able to show academic skills learn throughout many years of school. I feel that when I’m looking for internships people look for my background and how experienced I am when it comes to programming. I think if I overachieve my education in computer science I could be able to be successful like Reyna Grande on how she was able to pursue her dream career as a writer.
I consider the adversities and sacrifices that he has endured in order to promote a better life for me on his behalf. Even after the divorce of my parents when I was a child, my father continued to teach me how to become more considerate, engaging, and responsible. The valuable lessons he has imparted on me have given me the power, perhaps even with a touch of bravado, to defeat whatever challenges I am faced with. Because of my father taught me how to comport myself in public, I could be a polite and thoughtful man. “Politeness, does not remove courage” is something that my father used to said when I was a kid.

He was not being crazy or addictive he was doing what was best for his son in a time of need. Critics of Sheff’s memoir may blow up David’s actions, and make them seem as if he was doing only what he thought was best for himself. That was not the case, David was asking other parents how they reacted to their own experiences with their addictive kids. He was putting in the time to find the best ways to proceed with helping his son. On the back cover of Sheff’s book, Beautiful Boy, it says, “But as a journalist, he instinctively researched every avenue of treatment that might save his son and refused to give up on Nic.” I would say that David was the biggest help to Nic.
