    Otherwise known as authoritarian, the “Commander” parent is characterized as strict and demanding. The central ideal is that the child would be obedient to what the parent demands. There is very little communication based on the child’s feelings or desires. It is solely based around the rules the parent sets. The parent may give no explanation to the rules that he or she gives, yet these rules are expected to be followed without hesitation. Often times, parents are not understanding nor pay attention to the child when it comes to their happiness. Like a commander, an authoritarian parent commands their child in a militant like manner. For example, In the movie The Sound Of Music, Captain Von Trapp expects his children to act like they would in the military. Unlike Maria, Von Trapp is very strict when it comes to his children. The children may not gain sufficient independence from this type of parenting. I came home from school one day having not cleaned my room the night before. I had hoped my mom would not notice it, and that I could swiftly clean it before she came home.

If I say you need to do something, you need to do it when I tell you to. Since you did not clean your room when I asked, you must also clean the kitchen and clear off the table because I’m your mom and I say so.” She turned…

    Still enjoying great success half a century after it’s first release, the Sound of Music franchise is an interesting phenomenon. Although it has roots in the von Trapp’s tale, the form was morphed beyond the facts and became an entirely new creation. Their story has been told through several mediums, most notable of which are music, theatre and film. As one of the most successful musicals of all time, the catchy tunes and deceptively simple lyrics played a pivotal role, augmenting the…

    Although neoliberalism is a great advocator of a free market economy without trade restrictions and limitations in government intervention, neoliberalism also had some very harsh critics. It also brought about harsh consequences (effects) from some of the policies and theories it put forth. Ironically, neoliberalism’s biggest weakness stems from its biggest component: a free market economy, or a laissez-faire economy. Within a free market economy, there is a push for globalization based on…

    In addition, both political practices promote the idea of limited regulation, as it hinders individuals from obtaining monetary success.
