I believe the fear of what your parent will do over powers what people on the streets would do, if you have one of those parents who don’t tolerate weakness then theirs sure to be a rude awakening. Fear can be your strength in a situation like this. Fear pushes us to do things that would surprise anyone and even ourselves and in this case i assume that he was afraid of getting beat a third time and out of fear did what had to be done to ensure it doesn’t happen again. It wa fear that gave him the push he needed.
Also I want to say that the imagery happening here while he was doing this made me imagine exactly how this was playing out and standing up for yourself can be pretty scary even if it’s just telling someone about your situation.

Although this isn’t the best way to teach a child how to defend themselves (in my opinion at least) instead of hiding behind your parents leaving them to handle the matter, it’s still affective in terms of becoming independent in the way one deals with theses kinds of situations.

This a good point that you’ve made, children of our age love to break the rules sometimes and enjoy when their parents aren’t around to reprimand them when needed but what they don’t realize is how crucial that discipline is in their development as growing children especially within the time this was occurring, the discipline isn’t pleasant but it’s needed. So it is very true that at times we rely on our parents to help out as it is part of their roll in a child’s life to be the one they can place their trust with their life

As an educator, of the three anchoring questions I feel that finding ways to get students excited about learning is most important. Once you find the motivating factor the students then become the teacher because now learning is not a “chore”. I agree with Mr. Morrell that “there is a disconnect in the classroom between what kids really like to do and what they’re being asked to do….” Incorporating children’s interests into the curriculum is that motivating factor that makes students want to learn. And it also makes learning stress-free because they are doing something that they like.

I completely believe the ruling of his death was biased and unfair. No grown man should have use excessive force in the situation they were in. Anybody would be aggravated in the position he was in. That cop became he judge, jeory, and executioner when he held is body on his neck restricting his breathing. Killing him in result.

Why then is there no documented evidence informing parents of the need for discussing fractions and play games that involve fractions, with their children as the best way to get their children off to a flying start in mathematics?
