Parents abrogated the traditional method of forcing children to learn instead of proved “set free” method in order to learn freely. In this method, many children get the freedom to choose what they can do in their life. And they think this is the best way to support their children. Teachers would be less forced with their students. Because in these days children are protected well by laws, teachers would get trouble by forcing a student, and might even a slight corporal punishment. They might be sent into jail just a second after a slight punishment on students. So, some of the students become presumptuous, arrogant, and irreverent with their teachers. Students do not respect and listen to our grateful teachers. They frolic and play on cell phones in front of the teachers during class time. I had interview my older cousin. We talked about the change of education system between her young age time and right now. In our conversation, she told me that back then teachers and parents were more strict than they are right now. She had been forced to learn and even punished by her teachers and parents just because she did not finish her homework. She thought that she would have gotten childhood mental problems by all the forcement and punishment. But after she got into University with straight A’s, she was grateful with what her teachers and parents did. She got accepted by one most famous Universities of America, University of California, Berkeley. She saw the system had been transformed. Students get to choose what they want to do without seniority forcement, without forcement teenagers are too naive to decide and they might choose the wrong side. The bad side is they get too much freedom, and their brains are not fully developed with self-control and choose the correct things to do, such as spend time on internet, party to get drunk, or even do drugs.

    An article called, “Are cell phones a distraction to student’s education?” Written by Joanna Lopez, Marlen Mendez, Jonathan Negreros and Karla Barrera, on “The Ambassador” website. In the article it is stated that, “Cell phones cause a concern for some educators. Schools and teachers fear that many of their students are easily distracted in class as their friends send them a text message and they attempt to reply under their desks” Furthermore, the article produced a survey which stated that, “Six students that took the survey said that they can only live one day without their phone, and 13 said they can’t live without their phone for one week and only two can live without it for an hour.” This just shows how obsessed teens are for phone use and teens are bringing that obsession everywhere, including school. The standard definition for school is, “An institution for educating children.” However, that standard definition of school is being slowly bend and twisted by teens, due to their obsession for phone use. This is because teens bring that obsession to school where it does not only distract that teen itself however, other teens get distracted by that teen.…

    It is odd enough that children are staying quiet about an issue that affects their mental and psychical health, but even more odd about the way parents are addressing bullying. Sue Shellenbarger from the Wall Street Journal, address what mechanisms parents are using to help increase their child’s confidence in confronting bullies in the article “When a Bully Tragets Your Child” ( 2016). During the years of middle and high school, many children face social issues such as appearance, lack of confidence, and even relationship problems. Those are some of the factors that bullies take into consideration when selecting their next victim. In this case many children feel defenseless, “avoiding telling their parents because they’re afraid mom or dad will contact the bully or the bully’s parents, sparking further embarrassment and retaliation, research shows” (Shellenbarger 2016).…

    Some schools have strict policies about cellular phones being used during class or even at school in general. The reason behind these strict policies is because it is causing students to be less attentive. Students cannot learn properly if their technological device is within reach and easily accessible during class hours. While their time and main focus is supposed to be on school work and participating in class discussions, their attention is being drawn to their phones. Some teachers would agree that texting and a phone ringing during class is a major disruption to students because it takes a great deal of time away from an important lecture.…

She would get in trouble if she didn’t do her assignments at school or her grades were not up to their standards.

    In my case, I showed a negative misbehavior such as yelling in class and talking with classmates because I wanted to grab the attention of the teacher. I hoped my English teacher can focus on me. According to the experts, the students always ask questions, perform, cling because they are desperate for social recognition and belonging (Mr. Dreikurs, Grundwald, & Pepper, 1998). Besides, misbehavior among children can be related to the feeling of loneliness or isolation is one of the important causes (Dr. Rehman, 2012). It can be found that if the students would like to get attention, students may break the norms of the class.…
