Parental control…. The never ending problem of a large portion of students. Many of the students including myself and my friends dread how their parents involve themselves and control their lives. The nagging, questioning, complaining, ordering, picking, etc. The list goes on endlessly. Parents involve and surround themselves in the lives of their children and feel they need to control it. Forewarning, I will write this blog in my point of view. I will knowledge vomit all of my thoughts about this certain topic onto this blog. I can rant about this topic all day. I will try my best to understand the other point of view and reflect upon it but here’s what I think:
Competitiveness. It can bring out the best of us, or the worse. So, how do we act upon it?
While reading a book, I started noticing this reoccurring pattern in each section. Basically the entire book consisted of someone seeking help from other people. Whether it was a helpless population seeking the aid of their king or even a helpless king seeking the help from other people. Most cases consisted or a person in dire need seeking aid from another person. The thing that caught my attention was the fact that many people didn’t care to help people in need. Although their were someone good Samaritans, there were also some that didn’t care to help either. They were rather repulsed by a helpless person. They didn’t want anything to do with him or her. Some people even abandoned their loved ones for their own selfish purpose. They thought of themselves before others. Seeing the way the society functioned in this particular book made me reflect on our own society and how are society can be just the same way. There are many people out their who can act the same. You see it all the time on Youtube. People who run Youtube channels carry out social experiments that test humanity. They dress as homeless people and pretend as if they need money. They ask for spare change and people who walk by completely disregard their existence. It’s heartbreaking to see such thing. We live in a society of instant gratitude and we care for our own needs before others. I’m not saying everyone is like this but we’ve all one time in our lives done such selfless act. So I asked myself, “How can we have a society that is more thoughtful to others?”
Well, I found my answer in another book.
Have you ever found yourself at home and have nothing to do? All your friends are busy at school/work, they’re sick, or they have to go somewhere else? Well don’t sit at home bored because of them. Here’s some fun things you can do!
On many occasions we all tend to forget certain things. It’s a human flaw and we can’t help it. You don’t want to forget, but you just do! Sometimes we forget supplies, books, homework, keys, our kids, chores, etc. The list can go on and on. But, fortunately there are many ways to reduce forgetfulness.
