Shane Athans Introduction to Sociology September 17, 2007 THE VIEW FROM A SPANIARD The person I selected was Josh Stockwell. He lived in Spain for most of his life. I selected to interview a person from Spain because I lived there for 3 years and I wanted to learn even more about what would go through the mind of at least one Spaniard. I asked him 5 questions and these are all more or less directly quoted from him. 1. How do you feel about the differences in the way American children are raised and Spanish children are raised?

The problem with this is that I think a lot of kids then are more enticed to get caught up in binge drinking or drugs or what not because they feel so isolated from real life, and then they have a hard time adjusting to the real world because they're used to having their parents take care of everything for them. 2. How do you feel about the terrorist acts against the US and how would you have reacted if it happened in Spain? Well I guess I feel the same as a lot of people; sad and angry.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
