Christian parents have a unique privilege to cooperate in His work of creation. (Ibid) Many parents simply want to have children to indirectly cure their own complexes or to realize some of their dreams or ambitions that they themselves could not. In such cases, children are placed in a very unpleasant position: they are expected to have the best results at school, success in competitions, etc. From the earliest age, they need to be the first to be at all costs in everything they do, and if they do not succeed in it, they are tempted not to be good enough... A large number of people appreciate only material values, and this is often the reason they choose to have only one child "not to waste wealth." So in most cases, when the child is the only one, all the desires begin to fulfill, he always gives up, and this is the sure way to create an egocentric incompetent person from his child. 4

    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.
