Improved Essays
Throughout my life I have realized that not every child was given the parental love that I had growing up. Even though I grew up with my parents being split, practically my whole life except my first year, I was still given unconditional love, and not by two parents, but by four.

But when I think about all the love I received, I realized that there are children who are not getting as much love, or any love at all.

She is a detective that often works around disadvantaged families and children. I remember particularly one family that I met through her work and their family included a single mother and three young children. Their family went through an atrocious event caused by their dad. Once my mom visited with them, she brought me along once, and then continued to do so. My mother and I started to visit them regularly and bring them items they needed, like diapers and canned food. I will always remember this family; even though they were impoverished, they still had so much love to give and they taught me such a needed lesson. I hope that I left a lasting impression on them and that they will always remember me. Whether a child is in need of food, clothes or love, I would love to think that I helped them in some way, even if it was just making them

    Growing up I used to hear mothers say, “I’m not my child’s friend” and at first I agreed with that theory. Yes there has to be a defining line between parenting and being a friend but the truth is you can have a friendly relationship with your children as long as they know what boundaries can’t be crossed. I have endured many struggles in my family but my two daughters and I have developed a strong bond and I enjoy spending time with them. I give them the freedom to be themselves, we laugh, talk, and cry together. I love that we are close and that we admire and acknowledge each other’s strengths.…

    Justin 1 I got introduced to Bernard by my grandparents, as they were neighbors to each other. My first impression was that he was another elderly resident. As I kept visiting him on my grandmother’s behalf, I learned about Bernard’s heart condition when a social worker came into his home and helped him with daily tasks like going out for a walk. I felt morbid about this; that he couldn’t do it on his own. Sometimes later, Bernard got an assisted breather for his home.…
