De la Garza  1 Sherin de la Garza English 101 Mr. Adams 27 October 2010 Families always wanted their children to reflect themselves, to reflect the proper and well mannered, to look like a younger replica of them. To make a strong and distinct statement that this is my child and one can see that by just simply looking at them. Not necessarily by seeing the similar cheekbone structures or the curvatures of their nose, but how they themselves present themselves to the world. How they interact. How they dress mainly. How their personality and ideas are projected in the style of garment or the actual garment itself. How they mirror their parents. Even though, however, the parent themselves may be totally unaware of the replicated self and are thus even more proud than ever because their child is forming into the “right” individual, somebody whom their parents would agree with simply because they are a sheer mockery of the parent. John Seabrook, author of “My Father's Closet”, argues “My father used his clothes to pass along culture to me” (98) then continues “I, in turn used clothes to resist his efforts” (98), showing the total contrast in ideas and lack of communication from side of the father to the son. And as a result the entire life between the father and son was a continuous battle where neither one was really able to sit down and understand one another, hence never achieving the desired relationship between the two. Television right now also seems to reflect the idea that parents try to shape their children and from an early start gives children the opportunity to understand the issue at hand and encourage them to be the individual they want to be.

    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.
