Prabhleen Sidhu February 25, 2016 Psychology 12 Important Individuals in My Life When most people think of parenting, they picture changing diapers, food all over the place, and chasing a screaming child through a crowded grocery store. But parenting goes far beyond the requirements for meeting the basic survival. Sometimes being present in the child's’ life is just not enough. A child requires love, trust, support, encouragement, and much more. The task is not a simple one. However, influence on a child is not only made by its parents. There are many individuals who help to shape and influence our personalities as we develop into adults. This influence is not necessarily always positive, a negative impact can also be made. In my infancy, childhood, and adolescence years, my sister and mother have been those individuals. They both have really shaped me to be the person I am today. They have significantly contributed to my development and to my life. In my infant years, from birth to about age four, my mother was a big part of it. She is a stay at home mom. Some might find that an easy job to do, but to me, she is a superhero. I wish people would give her more credit for the amount of work she does. A stay at home mom is a full time job. My mom spent every minute of the day with me, and without help. Since my dad was working long hours, my mom was the one to wake up in the middle of the night to feed me or rock me back to sleep. Then she would wake around 5, feed me, make breakfast and lunch for my father, and take care of my older sister as well. Then, throughout the day she would have to clean the house, and she still managed to keep both me and my sister entertained. I think what made my mom's job a little bit easier was me having an older sister to keep me company.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
