In Vietnam, children are considered God’s gifts. A mother gives birth, but children’s characters come from God. Also their personalities are influenced by the society around them. That fact is why some nice parents don’t have good children, or some people are good sons or daughters even though their parents are bad. A good son or daughter should have certain qualities. Being hard working, sympathetic, and respectful of parents are the most important qualities of a good son or daughter. First of all, a good son or daughter should be a hard working person. A good child usually makes parents happy, and parents are happy when their children do what they are supposed to do. For example, if a child is a student, she is supposed to study hard. If she studies hard, whether she gets good grade or not, her parents are pleased with her. In addition, in Vietnam we value children as good sons or daughters when they do not make their parents worry about them. For instance, a boy after graduation from a university got a job and worked hard. Although he did not get a good—paying job, he earned enough to take care of himself. That boy is a good son because he is self—reliant and his parents don’t have to worry about him. Being hard working has remained the same over time in my culture. Additionally, to be sympathetic is one of the most important qualities of a good child. Parents who have to work hard to feed their children are usually tired after a long day. As a result, they sometimes get angry easily and may overreact with their children very small mistakes. If their children were sympathetic, they would understand and would not hate or think that parents don’t love them. Moreover, if sons or daughters understand their parents’ frustration, they know that they should help their parents do what they can do. For instance, elementary school students can clean up their…...

How to Be Good -' Nick Hornby

...Essay “How to be Good” is written by Nick Hornby in 2001, and they store is about an average family. One day the narrator, whose name is Katie, is in a dilemma. Her husband David has given their son’s computer away to the women’s refuge: without consulting her or their two kids. David thought it was greedy to have two computers in the house when those women and their children didn’t even have one. This action of David’s has, inevitable, made the children upset, because they now have to share one computer, instead of having their own. Katie ends the argument with the following statement ‘’you can’t blackmail your own children like that’’ In the end all parts calm down, and David manages to see that he has made a mistake and he apologizes. But there is still something that bugs Kate. A part of Katie wants the computer back, because it was a Christmas present to her son and they worked really hard to buy it, but another part of her knows that her husband only did a good deed with good intentions. She is also doing something for the greater good by helping those women and letting them keep Tom’s computer. This is concluded from the following quotation; “I don’t know what to say (…) What is there for me to be angry about?” (pp. 1, lines 31-33). Here she asks herself how she can be angry, when David just did a decent thing. This is the first part where you can see she is in a bit of dilemma. Katie is in conflict with herself because she does not know what to do and how......

The Good Son

...Movie Review November 1, 2012 The Good Son After watching The Good Son, it seems that Henry has symptoms similar to the DSM-IV-TR standards for conduct disorder (American Psychiatric Association., 2000, p. 68-69). We see that Henry bullies and threatens his cousin, Mark. He also provokes a physical fight with Mark (Page & Ruben 1993). He uses dangerous weapons and uses them to inflict physical cruelty to animals (American Psychiatric Association., 2000, p. 68-69). We see this as Henry comes out with his “new invention.” It is similar to a crossbow. He uses his “invention” to kill a dog (Page & Ruben, 1993). He deliberately destroys others’ property as seen in the scene where both Henry and Mark are throwing rocks at the windows in the empty warehouse (Page & Ruben, 1993). He frequently manipulates others. He also steals items of nontrivial value without confronting a victim as shown when the mother finds the rubber ducky in the shed (Page & Ruben, 1993). Our first impression of Henry comes when Mark first arrives at his aunt and uncle’s house. Henry is still upstairs and we hear a scream. Not a scream of terror or fright, but more of a playful scream in attempts to startle others. The camera shifts to Henry who is hanging upside down with a white, handmade mask on. After his father tells him to come down, we see Henry still in his mask, with a plaid shirt tucked into his pants with a belt running down the stairs. When he gets to the bottom, he lifts......

How to Be a Good Manager

...ASIGNMENT REPORT How to be a good manager Student Sunny 05/01/2013 I’ve known that good managers’ attributes that are useful are that they are always on top of what happens in the office. They make sure that the whole office runs efficiently by keeping an organized office. It is very important to be organized and to love what you do in order to make sure that the office is taken care of to the best of their ability. That is a reason why I’m interested in how to be a good manager. Firstly, a manager needs thirty skills to be successed: Communication, Listening skills, commitment for a truth, empathy, persuasion, leadership, focus, division of work, obstacle removal, heat absorption, uncertainty removal, project management, and administrative and Financial Skills. Communication, listening skills, and commitment for a truth are the most significant for a manager. Now, I would like to focus on communication first. There’s a lot of communication when you’re a manager. You have to communicate with each of your employees. You have to communicate “sideways” with your co-workers and customers. And you have to communicate upwards with your own manager or executive. You need some substance in the communication, of course — you need to have something worthy of being communicated. But substance isn’t enough — if you know what you’re doing and can’t properly communicate it to anyone else, then you’ll never be a good manager. Secondly is listening skills. This is a part of......

How to Choose a Good Roommate

...common currently. Many students live with other classmates in one dormitory on campus; some workers share the room with other people in big city because of the high rent fee; the others who living with someone else would feel safety and take care of each other. So, for these people, it is very important to find a nice person to live together. I would choose a good roommate who has some good characters such as integrity, keep everything clean and good at communication. First of all, the person must be honest and straightforward. Before the person becomes your roommate, you don’t know what he or she really is. So honest must be the key character for consideration. An honest man would never cheat you, annoy your life or even threat you safety. If a person, for instance, is dishonest, he or she may steal your stuff or money, or bring bad friends into your room. Such bad things will effect your peaceful life even make you feel danger. However, how can we recognize whether a person integrity or not. For me, I would like to review it into three different backgrounds. The first one is the family background. The person who grew up in a good family would not do such immoral things to other people. The second aspect is the education level. If the person gets well education, he or she must have many abilities which include the basic one-honest. The last one is related with the job and social backgrounds. I prefer to choose a roommate who will be introduced from my colleagues or friends.......

How Good Can Education Be

...use of logos is clear there is an underlining essence of pathos, and a lack of pathos. ​The article starts with talking about how special graduation is, and how important receiving a college degree really can be. Nevertheless it also says that the difficulty of schooling has significantly decreased in recent years. School is more about fun now then about work. Surveys have shown that “Almost 9 out of 10 reported overall they were satisfied with the college experience” (291). This study is showing that more students are having fun in college than actually receiving an education. The article goes on to say that another study was done to follow around students for all four years of college. During this time they had a lot of free time, and minimum coursework. They also noticed that little to no effort was put into the amount of work being done at the time. The author then says that “In a typical semester 32 percent of the students did not take a single course with more than 40 pages of reading per week and 50 percent did not take any course requiring more than 20 pages of reading.” (291) Here again the college student tries to receive the minimum amount of course work. Students are not growing in their critical thinking, and reasoning skills. Rather they are just using their time in college to receive social skills. To conclude the articles sums up how the quality of schooling has dropped significantly. ​Throughout the essay there is a clear understanding that logos is used,......

How to Be a Good Parent

On this glorious morning, I, XXX the founder of Brainy Montessori , I am going to give a talk on “What Does It Take To Be A Good Parent?”. In my speech, I am going to share with you some characteristics of a good parent. According to Oxford Dictionary, parent define as a person who is a father or mother or a person who has a child.

How to Be Good

...Analysis of “How to Be Good” In the excerpt from the novel How to be Good, the author, Nick Hornby introduces a story that illustrates an issue of homelessness in an upper middle class neighborhood. The narrator, Katie Carr, finds herself in a situation where she is dealing with her husband, David, and his friend’s, GoodNews, mission to change their neighborhood by decreasing the number of homeless youth.

They gather all of their neighbors at the party and introduce this problem and their solution to obtain everyone’s opinion. As a result of this gathering, David and GoodNews illustrate their “goodness” to their community by encouraging people to become part of the solution. Even though the other side of their solution is presented to the audiene, five people feel that they have an obligation to change the lives of these homeless children.

How Crime Is Good for Society

...Sean Butler 4/4/16 Professor Stringer Criminal Justice System How Crime is good for Society Ever since the first use of national crime statistics came out in 1934, there have only been 16 years where the crime rate declined, eight of those years being after 1992. So basically, crime is all around us, all the time. Interestingly though, the evidence shows that,” our most sustained drop in crime, neatly coincides with the longest economic expansion in U.S. history has led some experts to insist there's a connection between the two.” (Leher, Eli.) That’s contradictive of beliefs though, at first you would think crime rates should drop and fall regarding the countries economics. After looking at the data though, there’s little evidence to suggest that good economic times have an effect on the crime rates. Crime is good for society because it determines the economic trend, how crime benefits the economy, it sets boundaries on what is right and wrong, and the philosophers and their views on crime. Between the years of 1955-1972, as the US economy flourished, with a mild recession in the beginning of the 1960s. By the time they reached the 1970s, “crime rates had increased over 140 percent. Murder rates had risen about 70 percent, rapes more than doubled, and auto theft nearly tripled.” (Leher, Eli.) A bad economy doesn’t necessarily indicate more crime though, “Crime rates fell about one third between 1934 and 1938 while the nation was struggling to emerge from the Great......

How to Write a Good Report

...How to Write a Good Report Bhaskaran Raman, Apr 2004 This short document describes how to write a good report. This is based on common mistakes I have observed over a period of time. While most of the following apply in general, they have been written with BTech/MTech/PhD students in mind. The comments below apply for course projects, other semester projects, technical reports, theses (BTech/MTech/PhD). That is, technical writing in general. While a google search on the topic may churn out many hits, the following is tailored for IIT (Kanpur) students in particular. I will first mention some general guidelines, then the structure of the report. Towards the end, I will also describe how to refine your writing, and how to give feedback on others' writing. Based on these, I will recommend a possible strategy for producing high-quality reports which have high potential for being published. General Guidelines These are some general things you should know before you start writing. I will try to answer the questions of the purpose of report writing, and the overall approach as well. Purpose of a report: writing to be read A key thing to keep in mind right through your report writing process is that a report is written to be read, by someone else. This is the central goal of report-writing. A report which is written for the sake of being written has very little value. Before you start writing your report, you need to have in mind the intended audience. In the......
