Aguilera 1 Claudia Aguilera Basic Composition Rough Draft 1 Monday, 26-09-2011 Donna Cantor How to Succeed in Life The word success has different meanings for everybody. Every parent has their own way of parenting, based also on the way they were raised. Adam Gopnik, an American author, dis- cusses in his essay “Bumping into Mr. Ravioli” (153-160), some issues he has with his own daughter Olivia growing up in a very large city like New York City. He (change he to gopnik)also shows the difficulties of having a busy life and how this influence on(instead of “how this influence on . . make it “how this influences”) the way Olivia could develop in the fu- ture and the level of successfulness in her life. At the same time Amy Chua, a professor of Law at Yale Law School, describes in her essay “Why Chinese Mothers are Superior” (51-56), how she raised her two daughters Sophia and Louisa to be two totally independent and successful girls. She mentions how the way Chinese mothers raise their children is completely different than the way westerns mothers do. She also explains show after all the strictness the outcome that comes out of that toughness is totally successful human beings. The values that we are taught while growing up, influence on the(influences the. . instead of influence on the) types of success we expect from others, especially from our children. In parenting, success is measured on the way children come out to be, and on what parents expect from them. Success is measured ac- cording to the results one seeks and the expectations that others, especially our parents, want from us.
