  • How Does Popculture Portray Children As Being Carefree

    kids have this naive mentality embedded in them. As kids get older and grow up they learn about bad things in the world, and what they should fear. I think it is good for children to have this innocence for a while, and not know about all of the corupt things going on in this world. There are many different types of popculture that display children as being carefree and reckless. The way popculture displays chilren as being carefree puts an image in out head of the way we think children should act or the way some do act. I think children now days are more aware of the things and the dangers in the world. In the movie Home Alone, the main character Kevin McCallister is very mischievious, and gets himself into lots of trouble. Kevin’s parents accidently left him at home when they left for Paris. He was thrilled he was left home alone until he realized that there were burgalers trying to get into his house. This led him to set up many different types of booby traps. Watching the movie you can really tell that Kevin is having a lot of fun with this. I think most kids no matter how mischievious would be scared in Kevin’s situation.Which I think shows that popculture is not always right about children being so carefree. The show “Stranger Things” has young children as the main characters. The boys try to find their missing friend with the help of a young mysterious girl that has supernatural powers. While the adults in this show are terrified of trying…

  • Comparison Of Home Alone And Ransom Of Red Chief

    In the movie Home Alone and the story, Ransom of Red Chief I feel like the theme for both of them is that no matter how small and innocent someone seems they could be a serious pain. In the story the author wrote] “The kid was a freckled face boy of ten with freckles that stood out.” (O’Henry 63) This shows that the two criminals thought this was just a little kid with freckles but later on they will realize how much trouble this kid will cause. In one of the scenes of the movie Home Alone the…

  • Expect To Be Called A Stand Patter Essay

    I like the quote "Expect to be called a stand patter, but don’t be a stand patter. Expect to be called a demagogue, but don’t be a demagogue," in the speech given by Calvin Coolidge at Massachusetts. It might have a different meaning but to me, it means not to be what people call us. This is a common problem in the world today. We live by what people call us; our every steps and breaths are determined by people. A few weeks ago in my Chem class, a friend of mine asked me a question. She said,…

    social media. It is the unhealthiest thing you can do to compare yourself to them. Beating yourself up because your beauty is different to theirs will only get you low self-esteem and a twisted mindset of what beauty is.
