“Choo, Chooo!” there goes another train chugging along the train tracks every thirty minutes. Most people are who they are today from their childhood or the way they were raised. I grew up in a neighborhood called Burstall, located on the west side of Bessemer, Alabama, where my granddad started his family and is currently growing. Love was so important when I was younger, since everyone needed it to go on with their day, to clarify in our time people are cold hearted, maybe from immoral trust issues and claim they don’t need anyone in this world to love them. However having someone, predominantly family, to show that their love is real, is important in life, in my opinion. According to The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, “Parents have a difficult time demonstrating their love openly,” which means kids may not appreciate the love that’s given to them because they don’t recognize it fluently. I agree to the text because I was that same child, thinking that my mom was against me and didn’t love me, but now I’ve grown to realize, she didn’t have time to forcefully apply her love but she did love us all.

... expense of. Being in a single parent home has trained me to take my relationship seriously. I believe that you should love your spouse as you would love yourself, if you were the person loving you. If and when I start a family, I want to be married and satisfied, for the reason that no child should have to live in a single parent home. Beyond doubt, my participation at home has opened my eyes to adore and appreciate my family more than ever.
In conclusion, love within the family is imperative and can be shown through caring, kindness, and compassion. Shannon Peck’s ‘Healing with Love’ states that “Love is the most important thing in your life.” Also, “Love is mighty and powerful to awaken, transform, and even bring healing.” Through my life span, I’ve learned the values of life through my childhood experiences, from my dad, and lastly my experiences at home.

According to the CDC 1 in 6 children and young adults are obese. The number of obese child has almost doubled within the last 30 years.

- From the readings this week and observing children interacting in different settings, I learned that play is a vital aspect of childhood. From play children learn about themselves, they learn social skills, problem-solving skills and get somewhat of an understanding of life. The play is also beneficial it teaches children to make choices and to conform to social norms.

- Much of my childhood, despite being American-born, was heavily influenced by my Mexican culture by way of my immigrant mom and my predominantly Mexican neighborhood. Thus, the foundation of my upbringing included the same norms and values that one, particularly a young female, would experience in Mexico. As a young person, disrespecting an adult was a huge offense; so, my default was to be silent around older people. As a female, it was expected that I would learn how to cook, clean, care for younger siblings and to have restrictions placed upon my social life....

- A substantial amount of the population lack the self-sufficiency necessary to thrive in the trials that coincide with adulthood. Considering the degree of independence one holds in their later years depends on the level of autonomy attained in adolescence, it is no surprise that over parenting serves as the culprit of this deficiency. In theory, over parenting forces self-discipline and faultless morals upon children; which is precisely why a number of parents deem over parenting as harmless if not helpful....
