Final Paper Assessment 1 The Glass Castle SWK 307-02 2 The Glass Castle Question 1 Jeannette has been portrayed in this article as a very happy and curious young girl. She is loving and caring with the ability to cope up in any given situation that the family got into in their pursuit of a better and prosperous life. Having had a chance to live in different environments any different meeting people with distinct personalities, she was able to develop the social skills that turn out to be essential not only to her life but also the family as well. The ability to socialize with anyone in the environment she ever lived made her develop the survival skills despite the challenges the family had. With her social expectations high above the hindrances in the society, she was able to live a focused and objective life with an anticipation that things would eventually work out for the family and herself as well. The moving up and down of the family with some reasons of Jeannette’s dad being tracked down by the FBI made Jeannette harden and learn various survival tactics wherever they went. For instance, in areas where they went to seek some rental houses, the inhabitants of these places had a social life of gambling, corning others among others intolerable social behaviors. Question 2 In both cases, the children got themselves in the society in the social zone that was initiated by the struggles that the families went through on the verge of trying to live a better life. The hardship these children are exposed to enable them to try and find friends irrespective of the environment they kept changing. 3 In the two situations, the social environment was close to the children’s homes and in an informal social setting which is different from those that socialize informal environments like the schools and other social institutions. In the Zastrow’s case, thein interaction between children took place in a particular social setting whereas Jeannette’s experience the social environment was not defined (Zastrow, 2013). The environment kept changing according to their up and down movement. Question 3 The Walls family is composed of the children the parents and to some extent the grandparents. They tend to work progressively together to achieve a common goal. In most cases, the dad has been the decision maker and determines who does what, how and when in a systemic manner. The form of communication initiated is based on a central point in which the decisions are made and passed down to the rest of the family members, and an action is taken irrespective of what the family feels about the latter. A real family as described by Zastrow is the one that does not relent on its pursuit to do what is right for the best of the society through proper utilization of the available resources. No matter the challenges that might be experienced, the adequate interaction will yield a socially moral and developed environment. A positive family makes decisions that would ensure everyone gains and that the parents can provide for their children. Question 4 The constructivist theory is applicable because, through perceptions and experiences that are real, children can learn different social values in the community. For instance, Jeannette’s family 4 keeps on moving up and down in pursuit of better lives based on the experiences the family went through, running away from the FBI. Question 5 Her first days in school were faced with a lot of challenges because of alienation of the peers. Those that were new in school hardly had friends from the first days. However, this changes with time as more groups of students in the schools are formed (Walls, 2017). Through the grouping of the students, rivalry arises and leads to bullying as well as determining how these students intend to play with one another. However, wherever these challenges are noticed by the teacher he or she ought to ensure students coexist well both t school and home. Question 6 Jeannette’s experience is well described by the psychological maltreatment. At a very tender age, she is exposed to adverse conditions and an up and down movement which leaves her questioning the dad why they have to do this. Her dad’s pistol also leaves her psychologically disturbed asking herself lots of questions as to why the FBI was after her dad. Question 7 The events that influenced Jeannette were the desire to achieve something different and ability to socialize with people in the society. To change the way things were run in the family as well as being to be able to look up to the peers and role models who would impact her positively. The desire to go to school was one of the events that influenced her life the development stage. 5 Question 8 The family can remain united despite the difficulties they face as a family. They at the same time defend themselves together, and the dad plays a role in ensuring their peace within the family, and every person is secure. On the contrary, they are limited by the level of illiterate and prone to drugs and substance abuse Question 9 The conflict concept describes the causes of poverty in the Walls family. This is amplified by the conflicts that arose in the family. As a result, domestic violence and alcohol consumption. The dad does little to help the family get out of poverty thus leaving the family dissatisfied and with a lot of disharmony within the family. Question 10 Homelessness is a result of social service programs and the failure to create an economic base or opportunities to not only the poor but also the entire community. Question 11 The family could not be termed as inferior, but whatever that exist in their minds is just the perception. The family spends a lot of time and resources to run up and down rather than settling down and focus on eradicating poverty. 6 Substance abuse and illiteracy are had also contributed to poor decision making and laxity in exploring opportunities. Question 12 In an article by Resilience of Families Living in Poverty, the authors describe mechanisms that are meant to improve the quality of poor people’s lives through community social workers and other groups (Zastrow, 2013). These are mandated to ensure there is the underlying infrastructure to aid development processes. Internal family relation also makes family resilient to poverty. Reflections: Question 1 The children ought to have been taken away from their home and educate them as well as inspiring them so that they could improve their family’s welfare and create more opportunities for the entire community The benefits include exposure and exchange of ideas from children of other communities that would encourage and lead to self-actualization in pursuing their dreams. However, the risk of moving them away from home is the fact that they might lose touch with the family values and lose their moral values Question 3 7 The walls family’s values similar to mine in the sense that at times we feel like things are not working well and there is nothing we can do to change things. However, the difference is determined by the ability to overcome problems because you first have to identify the issue and then work towards solving it. Question 4 The ability to endure the challenges that are faced carries the day in ensuring families live a better life. Education, as well as the sharing of experiences with other people, will help in solving them. It is also important for people not to give up or run away from problems but rather face and solve the as expected to make a better society. Summary The Walls family as depicted the glass castle article illustrates the various issues that are impacting this family negatively. These problems make the family keep on moving from one place to another with the aim of trying to make life a little bit better. A united and peaceful family eventually gets itself into disputes with its family members. Alcohol abuse proves to be the negative point of this family and therefore requires some interventions to rescue the family from the persisting disharmony. Illiteracy and lack of exposure of this family to other ambitious and educated families are one of the causes of poverty. 8 Jeannette’s wish to go to school was meant to acquire some knowledge that will aid in the transformation of her family for a better life. Through her determination and the pursuit of excellence, she joined the school, went through the challenges that related academics and at the end of it all she was successful. The conflict theory is used to describe what the reasons why Walls family is languishing in poverty. As a result, domestic violence and abuse of alcohol have been the center of conflicts within the family. The benefits of exposure and exchange of ideas from children of other communities prove to be useful in encouraging and thus leading to selfactualization in pursuing their dreams in various field interest. However, the risk of moving them away from home is the fact that they might lose touch with the family and cultural values as well as their moral values. Zastrow illustrates how people in the society must interact and always strive to empower themselves to get rid of poverty from their communities. Community social workers play a useful role in facilitating socio-economic development within a specific region. 9 Conflict Theory Conflict theory is the best theory that explains poverty in Walls family. Poverty that took place in the family was a result of conflicts. There were a lot of conflicts that took place in the family. Alcohol abuse, which was a major problem in the family, is the reason why the family was drowning in poverty. The money that the family earned, will end up be spent on alcohol and the coming days the family will go for days without food. The family was in constant wrangles and the father did less to alleviate the family from poverty. The father hardly worked stable job, he kept on quitting different jobs and moving from one city to another rather than staying in one place. This means that the family was lacking stability because they kept on moving as a way of trying to escape the poverty. Zastrow and Ashman (2016), “the conflict perspective rests on an important assumption: members of society highly value certain things (such as power, wealth and prestige), and most of these valued resources are in scarce supply.” We saw in the book how Jeannette father was always on the move quitting jobs because he thought that will give him more time to find golf and build his own glass castle. The people or individuals will then struggle to achieve those resources. These struggles may occur in various ways, competition, physical fights, violence and many more. The poverty that the family was going through ended up pushing the children. The children felt that their father was not doing anything to help them escape the poverty and also they wanted a better education, as a result they decided to leave their parents and move to New York. They believe their father’s goal to build a glass castle for them was never going to happen since he was using each and every money to buy alcohol, making them starve for some days. 10 “is homelessness the result of drug abuse and misguided entitlement programs, as the conservatives claim, or did it occur, as the liberals argue because of cuts in social service programs and the failure to create economic opportunity for the poor?” 11 Based on our understanding of the theories of poverty, homelessness is the result of drug abuse. The reason we will say that is because of the evidence from the book when the father kept abusing alcohol even when they moved to New York. Therefore he was not able to afford the rent end up being on the streets with the mother. Maybe if he was using the money he got from the temporary jobs to improve his life like paying rent, making sure they have food they could have never been homeless. If the father was more careful and dealt with his alcoholic problems, he could have done better for his family. Many people end up becoming homeless because they abuse drugs and therefore failing to pay the bills, rent and other things they have to pay. All the money they have will be spent on the drugs rather than improving their lives, and if they do fail to pay rent, the landlord will have to throw them on streets. Some people survive even if they are not working or earning too much cash because they set their priorities first. They know what is important first because they could overuse the last cash they have.In some cases we will say people end up homeless because of cuts in social service programs and the failure to create economic opportunity for the poor. Zastrow and Ashman (2016), “see charity and government welfare programs as perpetuating poverty and economic inequality, because such programs quell political protests and social unrest that threaten status quo.” As a result we see many people end up being homeless because the government failed to equally distribute resources among the poor. The poor will eventually accept that they are poor and nothing will ever help them to escape the poverty leading to self-esteem downward. They will then stop doing things for themselves and leading to homelessness. Opinions on Walls Family 12 In our opinion the Walls family was not poor. The family was too lazy to take risk and ask for help. The Walls family was going through financial struggles in most time. The father was working in the mines but he kept quitting different jobs and the family had to move from town to town. We say they were poor by choice because the mother really had plenty of lands in Texas that’s she could sell and earn millions and provide for the family.’ You mean you own land worth a million dollars? I was thunderstruck. All those years in Welch with no food, no coal, no plumbing and mom had been sitting on land worth a million dollars? Had all those years, as well as mom and dad’s time on the street- not to mention their current life in an abandoned tenement – been a caprice inflicted on us by Mom?’(Page 273). We feel we can't let our families starve to death while having an used land somewhere, that could be sold and making millions that the family will benefit from. Jeannette ‘s mum could have at list sold one land after realizing that the family is struggling because she had inherited other one in Phoenix that could be enough for children inheritance .The other reason that proves how the mother was lazy was when the mother was staying home not working despite the fact that she got a college, which qualifies her to teach, but she said she didn’t want to teach. Since she loved art, she could have choose that as part time and focus on something that could make more money for the family and then the family was never going to be poor. At times she will not wake up in the morning to go to school and the kids will have to wake her up. This are signs that she didn’t take her job seriously. After spending the whole summer renewing her certificate, she came back to work in Welch. ‘But the first day of school, Mom refused to get out of bed.’(Page 218) ‘I told her she had responsibilities. I told her child welfare might come down on us again if she wasn’t working. She folded her arms across her chest and stared us down. “I’m not going to school’’ (page 219) 13 Their dad was working in different mines, but sometimes he will get himself fired because he thought that could save him more time to look for gold, which he said he will build the glass castle with.’ Dad insisted he hadn’t exactly lost his job. He arranged to have himself fired because he wanted to spend more time looking for gold.’(Page 67) Why didn’t he keep the job while still looking for gold? This shows that he really wanted the family to struggle. He should have waited until he found the gold he as been looking for then, if found the he can quit the job but he didn’t, then he should have continued working so that the family have something to eat. The other thing that makes us think that they were really poor by choice is the situation with the dad’s drinking. If they were really struggling, the dad could have cut the drinking and save more money to support his family but he didn’t do that. The other thing is that when the wife got a job he will still keep taking money from her to spend it on alcohol. ‘While dad liked it that mom was bringing home a paycheck, he saw himself as the head of household, and he maintained that the money should be turned over him.’(Page 76). The money he took will be spent on alcohol and the next morning the kids go to school without lunch boxes. If he hasn’t taken the money to spend it in alcohol, the kids wouldn’t go to school hungry that’s why we say the poverty was by choice. The parents also didn’t want to accept any help from people. One example is when the kids met with the Welfare services man, she asked them not to talk to him when he come back again even though she knew that the family is struggling and needs support. She even asked them to return the clothes donated to them because she said she doesn’t want to be someone’s charity case. Summary of peer-reviewed article 14 On one study conducted focusing on women with children living in poverty and how they survive living in those conditions. (Vandsburger et al, 2008) study wanted to increase the understanding of how families living in poverty survive in hard times. The study really wanted to find the characteristics that promote resilience in families living in poverty. There were 128 women in the study with children who had 11 grade education or high school or GED diploma. In the findings, most of the respondents emphasized that during the hard times, standing together as one, showing one another love to recover quickly during those difficult times. So knowing that you have someone you love, someone you can depend on during the hard times gives them hope and they easily cope in such hard times. (Vandsburger et al, 2008), “Almost three quarters of these study participants identified their mutual love and affection for each other, their feelings of closeness, standing together for each other and their ability to communicate openly with each other as resources they used or as their family strengths.” Many respondents also mentioned religiosity as a way to recover in dealing with problems. It provided them with inspiration and guidance when they feel life is too harsh or whenever they are dealing with poverty. So during times of poverty some families will seek help from church. Just a few of those respondents mentioned how counseling and social work help them recover quickly during difficult times. Assessment, intervention 15 As a social worker it is important to understand the factors that helps families survive during hard times before proving them with government services, As we aw from the research, many women living in poverty emphasized that they survive by getting support from close people and religion during the hard times and few emphasized counseling and social work. “When social worker applies assessment tools leading to the collection of deficit- focused data such as dependencies, disabilities and dysfunctions associated with living in poverty, this focus inevitably influences assessment and treatment process.”(Vandsburger et al, 2008) Social workers can help those families to identify and build their own way of surviving in hard times. Since some of the families in this study mentioned how religion helps them during hard times, it is important for social worker to respond to their client’s elements of faith in their work. They can also advocate for the clients by including tools that are religiously based to help them understand how religion is important to their clients. By doing so, it means the clients religious needs are met. They should stop advocating for counseling and referrals. We saw from the study how women living in poverty were able to survive during the hard times with the support of each other and religion rather than help from government or welfare services. Reflections: 16 We think the children should have been removed from their home looking at their parents living conditions. The parents of Jeannette have been struggling to provide for the kids, the father’s alcoholic problems and the situation of moving them from one city to another. All these shows how the life of those kids was really hard despite their parents refusing to get welfare help because they feel like they are being a charity case to someone. But with the struggles they were facing, children should have been removed from their parents. Even though separating children from their parents may have negative and positive outcomes. 17 The possible benefits of removing the kids from home could be, getting a stable home where they will get the chance to sleep on bed, comfortable room unlike sleeping in the cardboards where rooms have leaking ceiling, broken windows and no bathroom. They could also get the opportunity to stay where they can never go a day without food. The kids were struggling with the food sometimes going to school without lunch box, sleeping with no food and ending up hiding during lunch break because they will feel bad sitting with other students having their lunch. We remember from the book when Jeannette was in her school after they moved to Welch, she had no lunch break and during the lunch she will hide in the bathrooms, when other kids throw the food in the trash cans, she will go and find some, to keep for her brother. So if the kids are removed from struggling parents, it can help them get a home where they will never go to bed hungry or go to school without the lunch boxes. The kids really struggled to keep warm when they go school during the winter days, the shoes were old and had holes, the coats with no buttons and other kids making fun of them, so when they are get a better home, they could have had the opportunity to have a clothes, going to school with warm clothes during cold weather. When Jeannette was 3 years old, she got burnt because she was cooking hotdogs, how can a three year old cook for herself, this was really a sign that the home was not stable for kids. They could have been with a family where food is cooked for them, not kids cooking at younger age. The parents were neglecting their kids needs rather the kids were the ones supporting each other. Getting the kids a stable means that they won't have to stress of moving from one city to another, they kids moved from Las Vegas, California, Phoenix until moving to West Virginia. This affected the kids because they had to grow up faster, we remember from the book when the author talked about how she and other siblings had to get job, so they could contribute in the 18 family. We totally disapprove that, the kids are not supposed to work until their age qualify, parents must be providing for their children, if they cant, then that’s when they could seek assistance from welfare to make sure that the kids have a stable home. Growing up in the house where the father spends all the money in drinking, is usually not healthy for the kids, seeing the father drunk all the time, coming home late and sometimes not returning, spending the last hard earned cash on alcohol do affect the kids. There was a time when their mother left them, she left the money for groceries and bills, but their father kept on asking money from her daughter while he knows well that the money was for the groceries and bills. What kind of parents asks money from their kids to buy alcohol while the kids are starving? That’s why we are saying the kids should have been removed because I see more benefits here than risks. 19 Still separating the kids from their parents could have been risks, for kids to grow happy and healthy they may need the birth parents love and support. We know when parents are really struggling with the kids, it's better if they are removed from them, but still there could be the risk. Some kids may find it hard to get used to new home, depending on what their parents said to them regarding getting help from other people. We know Jeannette parents were really against getting help because they feel they are being someone’s charity case. Therefore the kids were already taught not to accept any help or welfare services as a result it could be hard if they are removed from their home. Their parents taught them about not accepting any help from anyone. Let's say they were removed; they were going to find it hard to survive on someone’s responsibility because they were always told to stand for themselves. All we can say is that, removing the Walls kids was going to be struggle leading to some problems. The kids would have returned back to their home or birth parents. How are your values the same and different from those of the Walls family? 4) What lessons did you learn about strengths in the midst of adversity? (Again, this is another question to be discussed as a group. Check with your partner and then answer it) 20 (OLERILE) My Family values are close to those of Walls family, for example the parents were really struggling but they did taught their kids important values. They learned important values like loyalty, forgiveness, humility and appreciation. The kids really knew the meaning of standing by each other and they really learned something that could inspire them to become better people in the future. The kids were going through a lot of struggles but they still had to learn the meaning of being a family. Despite the poverty they were going through they still stand with they parents and even find ways to help their parents bring more cash in the house. The Walls siblings always stood by one another, they showed loyalty to one because they were always together. They really depended on each other rather than their parents. I remember how they were working hard together to help Lori save enough money because she wanted to move to New York after finishing high school. The three siblings were really working hard to make sure that their old sister’s wish to live in New York is accomplished ‘I thought Lori was amazing, and I had no doubt she would become a successful artist, but only if she could get too New York.’(Page 223). ‘I told Lori about my escape fund, the seventy-five dollars I’d saved. From now on, I said, it would be our joint fund. We’d take on extra work after school and put everything we earned into the piggy bank.’ (Page 223) With the lessons the kids learned they were able to put use of them and worked hard to have their lives improved. With the support they ere giving each other they were able to escape the poverty and get a better life. 21 The reason I’m saying my family values are similar to those Walls somehow because in my family loyalty, forgiveness, humility and appreciation is highly encourage. I was taught that loyalty begins with oneself and then family. No matter what circumstances, family has to stand with each other to fight all the struggles. I know in most family when there are economic struggles, the family breaks up, the parents divorce or kids find help from social services because they can’t stand struggling parents. But with the Walls it was different, they stood by each other all the time, Even in my family, there are times when things don’t go how they were planned, rather than fighting’s and breakup, we stand together. When someone wronged you, its important to forgive, The Walls were teaching their kids about forgiveness and the kids did really forgive themselves and the parents. I remember from the book when Jeannette father took all the money that they had saved up for Lori’s trip to New York to buy alcohol, Lori was mad at him but she was asked to forgive him. Even their mother was always forgiving him for the drinking and not coming home .My family do value forgiving of others despite the wrongness they did. Growing up in a family where we had struggles, I was always taught to appreciate life and whatever life brings to me. Sometimes we will struggle with food, clothes but whatever that comes up, I was told to appreciate it, even my siblings knew how important appreciation is. Just like the Walls kids were told to appreciate life. When their father gets them something to eat, they will accept it without complaining. The kids will even ignore other kids who were making fun of them at school about being poor. 22 During the midst of adversity, it’s really important to show loyalty. I know it's usually hard time because that’s when people show their true colors, it is important to stay on your lane. When people around you aren’t showing all the support it’s important to stay positive to make sure you survive the situations. These are usually times when one needs support, so I learned to that it is important to stand with your loved ones. Any struggle coming up is not meant to break you up rather to test the strength of the family and that’s why I’m saying during these times loyalty and support is all what is needed. During hard times people should not give up, they should keep fighting harder. We saw from the book how the kids kept fighting hard to escape the poverty by moving to New York. Patience and persistence together with hard work is the only way to solve the problems. From the book we saw how the father was so patient hoping someday he will find gold to build glass castle for his family. When times are hard it is important for the family to stand up together to tackle all their problems. Looking at how the Walls family was struggling to get stable jobs and income, we learned that education is the key to everything, without education life is not going to be easy. Therefore it's important for parents to make sure that the their kids get the best education so that they can be successful in the future. Even the parents themselves need the better education so that they could find better jobs to provide for the kids. As we saw from the book how the parents struggled to find stable jobs because of lack of education. 23 Reference: Vandsburger, E., Harrigan, M., & Biggerstaff, M. (2008).

Final Paper Assessment 1 The Glass Castle SWK 307-02 2 I just realized that your paper did not print all the way through so disregard some of my comments in the other email. However, I do have some concerns with your paper but nothing really major:-) It is mainly the set up in the beginning. The page numbers and come of the sub headers in the beginning (questions 1-10) does not look right. Because you did not set your paper up like I explained to you, I am lost trying to piece your paper together so can you both See me so we can fix this? I see Reflection but no words... what is that for?? I see it a few times in your paper... I see the part which is Olerile's point of view. Perhaps you should make yourself a subheader like this: Opinions of the Wall Family I felt that the Walls family was .....etc..etc.etc... This is just an example if that is what you were trying to do.. Remember I explained to you that you both must set up your doc by sub headers first. Putting Question 1 in a subheader is not acceptable. It has to summarize what you will talk about. The Glass Castle Question 1 Jeannette has been portrayed in this article as a very happy and curious young girl. She is loving and caring with the ability to cope up in any given situation that the family got into in their pursuit of a better and prosperous life. Having had a chance to live in different environments any different meeting people with distinct personalities, she was able to develop the social skills that turn out to be essential not only to her life but also the family as well. 3 The ability to socialize with anyone in the environment she ever lived made her develop the survival skills despite the challenges the family had. With her social expectations high above the hindrances in the society, she was able to live a focused and objective life with an anticipation that things would eventually work out for the family and herself as well. The moving up and down of the family with some reasons of Jeannette’s dad being tracked down by the FBI made Jeannette harden and learn various survival tactics wherever they went. For instance, in areas where they went to seek some rental houses, the inhabitants of these places had a social life of gambling, corning others among others intolerable social behaviors. Question 2 In both cases, the children got themselves in the society in the social zone that was initiated by the struggles that the families went through on the verge of trying to live a better life. The hardship these children are exposed to enable them to try and find friends irrespective of the environment they kept changing. In the two situations, the social environment was close to the children’s homes and in an informal social setting which is different from those that socialize informal environments like the schools and other social institutions. In the Zastrow’s case, thein interaction between children took place in a particular social setting whereas Jeannette’s experience the social environment was not defined (Zastrow, 2013). The environment kept changing according to their up and down movement. Question 3 4 The Walls family is composed of the children the parents and to some extent the grandparents. They tend to work progressively together to achieve a common goal. In most cases, the dad has been the decision maker and determines who does what, how and when in a systemic manner. The form of communication initiated is based on a central point in which the decisions are made and passed down to the rest of the family members, and an action is taken irrespective of what the family feels about the latter. A real family as described by Zastrow is the one that does not relent on its pursuit to do what is right for the best of the society through proper utilization of the available resources. No matter the challenges that might be experienced, the adequate interaction will yield a socially moral and developed environment. A positive family makes decisions that would ensure everyone gains and that the parents can provide for their children. Question 4 The constructivist theory is applicable because, through perceptions and experiences that are real, children can learn different social values in the community. For instance, Jeannette’s family keeps on moving up and down in pursuit of better lives based on the experiences the family went through, running away from the FBI. Question 5 Her first days in school were faced with a lot of challenges because of alienation of the peers. Those that were new in school hardly had friends from the first days. However, this changes with time as more groups of students in the schools are formed (Walls, 2017). 5 Through the grouping of the students, rivalry arises and leads to bullying as well as determining how these students intend to play with one another. However, wherever these challenges are noticed by the teacher he or she ought to ensure students coexist well both t school and home. Question 6 Jeannette’s experience is well described by the psychological maltreatment. At a very tender age, she is exposed to adverse conditions and an up and down movement which leaves her questioning the dad why they have to do this. Her dad’s pistol also leaves her psychologically disturbed asking herself lots of questions as to why the FBI was after her dad. Question 7 The events that influenced Jeannette were the desire to achieve something different and ability to socialize with people in the society. To change the way things were run in the family as well as being to be able to look up to the peers and role models who would impact her positively. The desire to go to school was one of the events that influenced her life the development stage. Question 8 The family can remain united despite the difficulties they face as a family. They at the same time defend themselves together, and the dad plays a role in ensuring their peace within the family, and every person is secure. On the contrary, they are limited by the level of illiterate and prone to drugs and substance abuse 6 Question 9 The conflict concept describes the causes of poverty in the Walls family. This is amplified by the conflicts that arose in the family. As a result, domestic violence and alcohol consumption. The dad does little to help the family get out of poverty thus leaving the family dissatisfied and with a lot of disharmony within the family. Question 10 Homelessness is a result of social service programs and the failure to create an economic base or opportunities to not only the poor but also the entire community. Question 11 The family could not be termed as inferior, but whatever that exist in their minds is just the perception. The family spends a lot of time and resources to run up and down rather than settling down and focus on eradicating poverty. Substance abuse and illiteracy are had also contributed to poor decision making and laxity in exploring opportunities. Question 12 In an article by Resilience of Families Living in Poverty, the authors describe mechanisms that are meant to improve the quality of poor people’s lives through community social workers and other groups (Zastrow, 2013). These are mandated to ensure there is the underlying infrastructure to aid development processes. Internal family relation also makes family resilient to poverty. 7 Reflections: Question 1 The children ought to have been taken away from their home and educate them as well as inspiring them so that they could improve their family’s welfare and create more opportunities for the entire community The benefits include exposure and exchange of ideas from children of other communities that would encourage and lead to self-actualization in pursuing their dreams. However, the risk of moving them away from home is the fact that they might lose touch with the family values and lose their moral values Question 3 The walls family’s values similar to mine in the sense that at times we feel like things are not working well and there is nothing we can do to change things. However, the difference is determined by the ability to overcome problems because you first have to identify the issue and then work towards solving it. Question 4 The ability to endure the challenges that are faced carries the day in ensuring families live a better life. Education, as well as the sharing of experiences with other people, will help in 8 solving them. It is also important for people not to give up or run away from problems but rather face and solve the as expected to make a better society. Summary The Walls family as depicted the glass castle article illustrates the various issues that are impacting this family negatively. These problems make the family keep on moving from one place to another with the aim of trying to make life a little bit better. A united and peaceful family eventually gets itself into disputes with its family members. Alcohol abuse proves to be the negative point of this family and therefore requires some interventions to rescue the family from the persisting disharmony. Illiteracy and lack of exposure of this family to other ambitious and educated families are one of the causes of poverty. Jeannette’s wish to go to school was meant to acquire some knowledge that will aid in the transformation of her family for a better life. Through her determination and the pursuit of excellence, she joined the school, went through the challenges that related academics and at the end of it all she was successful. The conflict theory is used to describe what the reasons why Walls family is languishing in poverty. As a result, domestic violence and abuse of alcohol have been the center of conflicts within the family. The benefits of exposure and exchange of ideas from children of other communities prove to be useful in encouraging and thus leading to selfactualization in pursuing their dreams in various field interest. However, the risk of moving them 9 away from home is the fact that they might lose touch with the family and cultural values as well as their moral values. Zastrow illustrates how people in the society must interact and always strive to empower themselves to get rid of poverty from their communities. Community social workers play a useful role in facilitating socio-economic development within a specific region. 10 Conflict Theory Conflict theory is the best theory that explains poverty in Walls family. Poverty that took place in the family was a result of conflicts. There were a lot of conflicts that took place in the family. Alcohol abuse, which was a major problem in the family, is the reason why the family was drowning in poverty. The money that the family earned, will end up be spent on alcohol and the coming days the family will go for days without food. The family was in constant wrangles and the father did less to alleviate the family from poverty. The father hardly worked stable job, he kept on quitting different jobs and moving from one city to another rather than staying in one place. This means that the family was lacking stability because they kept on moving as a way of trying to escape the poverty. Zastrow and Ashman (2016), “the conflict perspective rests on an important assumption: members of society highly value certain things (such as power, wealth and prestige), and most of these valued resources are in scarce supply.” We saw in the book how Jeannette father was always on the move quitting jobs because he thought that will give him more time to find golf and build his own glass castle. The people or individuals will then struggle to achieve those resources. These struggles may occur in various ways, competition, physical fights, violence and many more. The poverty that the family was going through ended up pushing the children. The children felt that their father was not doing anything to help them escape the poverty and also they wanted a better education, as a result they decided to leave their parents and move to New York. They believe their father’s goal to build a glass castle for them was never going to happen since he was using each and every money to buy alcohol, making them starve for some days. 11 “is homelessness the result of drug abuse and misguided entitlement programs, as the conservatives claim, or did it occur, as the liberals argue because of cuts in social service programs and the failure to create economic opportunity for the poor?” 12 Based on our understanding of the theories of poverty, homelessness is the result of drug abuse. The reason we will say that is because of the evidence from the book when the father kept abusing alcohol even when they moved to New York. Therefore he was not able to afford the rent end up being on the streets with the mother. Maybe if he was using the money he got from the temporary jobs to improve his life like paying rent, making sure they have food they could have never been homeless. If the father was more careful and dealt with his alcoholic problems, he could have done better for his family. Many people end up becoming homeless because they abuse drugs and therefore failing to pay the bills, rent and other things they have to pay. All the money they have will be spent on the drugs rather than improving their lives, and if they do fail to pay rent, the landlord will have to throw them on streets. Some people survive even if they are not working or earning too much cash because they set their priorities first. They know what is important first because they could overuse the last cash they have.In some cases we will say people end up homeless because of cuts in social service programs and the failure to create economic opportunity for the poor. Zastrow and Ashman (2016), “see charity and government welfare programs as perpetuating poverty and economic inequality, because such programs quell political protests and social unrest that threaten status quo.” As a result we see many people end up being homeless because the government failed to equally distribute resources among the poor. The poor will eventually accept that they are poor and nothing will ever help them to escape the poverty leading to self-esteem downward. They will then stop doing things for themselves and leading to homelessness. Opinions on Walls Family 13 In our opinion the Walls family was not poor. The family was too lazy to take risk and ask for help. The Walls family was going through financial struggles in most time. The father was working in the mines but he kept quitting different jobs and the family had to move from town to town. We say they were poor by choice because the mother really had plenty of lands in Texas that’s she could sell and earn millions and provide for the family.’ You mean you own land worth a million dollars? I was thunderstruck. All those years in Welch with no food, no coal, no plumbing and mom had been sitting on land worth a million dollars? Had all those years, as well as mom and dad’s time on the street- not to mention their current life in an abandoned tenement – been a caprice inflicted on us by Mom?’(Page 273). We feel we can't let our families starve to death while having an used land somewhere, that could be sold and making millions that the family will benefit from. Jeannette ‘s mum could have at list sold one land after realizing that the family is struggling because she had inherited other one in Phoenix that could be enough for children inheritance .The other reason that proves how the mother was lazy was when the mother was staying home not working despite the fact that she got a college, which qualifies her to teach, but she said she didn’t want to teach. Since she loved art, she could have choose that as part time and focus on something that could make more money for the family and then the family was never going to be poor. At times she will not wake up in the morning to go to school and the kids will have to wake her up. This are signs that she didn’t take her job seriously. After spending the whole summer renewing her certificate, she came back to work in Welch. ‘But the first day of school, Mom refused to get out of bed.’(Page 218) ‘I told her she had responsibilities. I told her child welfare might come down on us again if she wasn’t working. She folded her arms across her chest and stared us down. “I’m not going to school’’ (page 219) 14 Their dad was working in different mines, but sometimes he will get himself fired because he thought that could save him more time to look for gold, which he said he will build the glass castle with.’ Dad insisted he hadn’t exactly lost his job. He arranged to have himself fired because he wanted to spend more time looking for gold.’(Page 67) Why didn’t he keep the job while still looking for gold? This shows that he really wanted the family to struggle. He should have waited until he found the gold he as been looking for then, if found the he can quit the job but he didn’t, then he should have continued working so that the family have something to eat. The other thing that makes us think that they were really poor by choice is the situation with the dad’s drinking. If they were really struggling, the dad could have cut the drinking and save more money to support his family but he didn’t do that. The other thing is that when the wife got a job he will still keep taking money from her to spend it on alcohol. ‘While dad liked it that mom was bringing home a paycheck, he saw himself as the head of household, and he maintained that the money should be turned over him.’(Page 76). The money he took will be spent on alcohol and the next morning the kids go to school without lunch boxes. If he hasn’t taken the money to spend it in alcohol, the kids wouldn’t go to school hungry that’s why we say the poverty was by choice. The parents also didn’t want to accept any help from people. One example is when the kids met with the Welfare services man, she asked them not to talk to him when he come back again even though she knew that the family is struggling and needs support. She even asked them to return the clothes donated to them because she said she doesn’t want to be someone’s charity case. Summary of peer-reviewed article 15 On one study conducted focusing on women with children living in poverty and how they survive living in those conditions. (Vandsburger et al, 2008) study wanted to increase the understanding of how families living in poverty survive in hard times. The study really wanted to find the characteristics that promote resilience in families living in poverty. There were 128 women in the study with children who had 11 grade education or high school or GED diploma. In the findings, most of the respondents emphasized that during the hard times, standing together as one, showing one another love to recover quickly during those difficult times. So knowing that you have someone you love, someone you can depend on during the hard times gives them hope and they easily cope in such hard times. (Vandsburger et al, 2008), “Almost three quarters of these study participants identified their mutual love and affection for each other, their feelings of closeness, standing together for each other and their ability to communicate openly with each other as resources they used or as their family strengths.” Many respondents also mentioned religiosity as a way to recover in dealing with problems. It provided them with inspiration and guidance when they feel life is too harsh or whenever they are dealing with poverty. So during times of poverty some families will seek help from church. Just a few of those respondents mentioned how counseling and social work help them recover quickly during difficult times. Assessment, intervention 16 As a social worker it is important to understand the factors that helps families survive during hard times before proving them with government services, As we aw from the research, many women living in poverty emphasized that they survive by getting support from close people and religion during the hard times and few emphasized counseling and social work. “When social worker applies assessment tools leading to the collection of deficit- focused data such as dependencies, disabilities and dysfunctions associated with living in poverty, this focus inevitably influences assessment and treatment process.”(Vandsburger et al, 2008) Social workers can help those families to identify and build their own way of surviving in hard times. Since some of the families in this study mentioned how religion helps them during hard times, it is important for social worker to respond to their client’s elements of faith in their work. They can also advocate for the clients by including tools that are religiously based to help them understand how religion is important to their clients. By doing so, it means the clients religious needs are met. They should stop advocating for counseling and referrals. We saw from the study how women living in poverty were able to survive during the hard times with the support of each other and religion rather than help from government or welfare services. Reflections: 17 We think the children should have been removed from their home looking at their parents living conditions. The parents of Jeannette have been struggling to provide for the kids, the father’s alcoholic problems and the situation of moving them from one city to another. All these shows how the life of those kids was really hard despite their parents refusing to get welfare help because they feel like they are being a charity case to someone. But with the struggles they were facing, children should have been removed from their parents. Even though separating children from their parents may have negative and positive outcomes. 18 The possible benefits of removing the kids from home could be, getting a stable home where they will get the chance to sleep on bed, comfortable room unlike sleeping in the cardboards where rooms have leaking ceiling, broken windows and no bathroom. They could also get the opportunity to stay where they can never go a day without food. The kids were struggling with the food sometimes going to school without lunch box, sleeping with no food and ending up hiding during lunch break because they will feel bad sitting with other students having their lunch. We remember from the book when Jeannette was in her school after they moved to Welch, she had no lunch break and during the lunch she will hide in the bathrooms, when other kids throw the food in the trash cans, she will go and find some, to keep for her brother. So if the kids are removed from struggling parents, it can help them get a home where they will never go to bed hungry or go to school without the lunch boxes. The kids really struggled to keep warm when they go school during the winter days, the shoes were old and had holes, the coats with no buttons and other kids making fun of them, so when they are get a better home, they could have had the opportunity to have a clothes, going to school with warm clothes during cold weather. When Jeannette was 3 years old, she got burnt because she was cooking hotdogs, how can a three year old cook for herself, this was really a sign that the home was not stable for kids. They could have been with a family where food is cooked for them, not kids cooking at younger age. The parents were neglecting their kids needs rather the kids were the ones supporting each other. Getting the kids a stable means that they won't have to stress of moving from one city to another, they kids moved from Las Vegas, California, Phoenix until moving to West Virginia. This affected the kids because they had to grow up faster, we remember from the book when the author talked about how she and other siblings had to get job, so they could contribute in the 19 family. We totally disapprove that, the kids are not supposed to work until their age qualify, parents must be providing for their children, if they cant, then that’s when they could seek assistance from welfare to make sure that the kids have a stable home. Growing up in the house where the father spends all the money in drinking, is usually not healthy for the kids, seeing the father drunk all the time, coming home late and sometimes not returning, spending the last hard earned cash on alcohol do affect the kids. There was a time when their mother left them, she left the money for groceries and bills, but their father kept on asking money from her daughter while he knows well that the money was for the groceries and bills. What kind of parents asks money from their kids to buy alcohol while the kids are starving? That’s why we are saying the kids should have been removed because I see more benefits here than risks. 20 Still separating the kids from their parents could have been risks, for kids to grow happy and healthy they may need the birth parents love and support. We know when parents are really struggling with the kids, it's better if they are removed from them, but still there could be the risk. Some kids may find it hard to get used to new home, depending on what their parents said to them regarding getting help from other people. We know Jeannette parents were really against getting help because they feel they are being someone’s charity case. Therefore the kids were already taught not to accept any help or welfare services as a result it could be hard if they are removed from their home. Their parents taught them about not accepting any help from anyone. Let's say they were removed; they were going to find it hard to survive on someone’s responsibility because they were always told to stand for themselves. All we can say is that, removing the Walls kids was going to be struggle leading to some problems. The kids would have returned back to their home or birth parents. How are your values the same and different from those of the Walls family? 4) What lessons did you learn about strengths in the midst of adversity? (Again, this is another question to be discussed as a group. Check with your partner and then answer it) 21 (OLERILE) My Family values are close to those of Walls family, for example the parents were really struggling but they did taught their kids important values. They learned important values like loyalty, forgiveness, humility and appreciation. The kids really knew the meaning of standing by each other and they really learned something that could inspire them to become better people in the future. The kids were going through a lot of struggles but they still had to learn the meaning of being a family. Despite the poverty they were going through they still stand with they parents and even find ways to help their parents bring more cash in the house. The Walls siblings always stood by one another, they showed loyalty to one because they were always together. They really depended on each other rather than their parents. I remember how they were working hard together to help Lori save enough money because she wanted to move to New York after finishing high school. The three siblings were really working hard to make sure that their old sister’s wish to live in New York is accomplished ‘I thought Lori was amazing, and I had no doubt she would become a successful artist, but only if she could get too New York.’(Page 223). ‘I told Lori about my escape fund, the seventy-five dollars I’d saved. From now on, I said, it would be our joint fund. We’d take on extra work after school and put everything we earned into the piggy bank.’ (Page 223) With the lessons the kids learned they were able to put use of them and worked hard to have their lives improved. With the support they ere giving each other they were able to escape the poverty and get a better life. 22 The reason I’m saying my family values are similar to those Walls somehow because in my family loyalty, forgiveness, humility and appreciation is highly encourage. I was taught that loyalty begins with oneself and then family. No matter what circumstances, family has to stand with each other to fight all the struggles. I know in most family when there are economic struggles, the family breaks up, the parents divorce or kids find help from social services because they can’t stand struggling parents. But with the Walls it was different, they stood by each other all the time, Even in my family, there are times when things don’t go how they were planned, rather than fighting’s and breakup, we stand together. When someone wronged you, its important to forgive, The Walls were teaching their kids about forgiveness and the kids did really forgive themselves and the parents. I remember from the book when Jeannette father took all the money that they had saved up for Lori’s trip to New York to buy alcohol, Lori was mad at him but she was asked to forgive him. Even their mother was always forgiving him for the drinking and not coming home .My family do value forgiving of others despite the wrongness they did. Growing up in a family where we had struggles, I was always taught to appreciate life and whatever life brings to me. Sometimes we will struggle with food, clothes but whatever that comes up, I was told to appreciate it, even my siblings knew how important appreciation is. Just like the Walls kids were told to appreciate life. When their father gets them something to eat, they will accept it without complaining. The kids will even ignore other kids who were making fun of them at school about being poor. 23 During the midst of adversity, it’s really important to show loyalty. I know it's usually hard time because that’s when people show their true colors, it is important to stay on your lane. When people around you aren’t showing all the support it’s important to stay positive to make sure you survive the situations. These are usually times when one needs support, so I learned to that it is important to stand with your loved ones. Any struggle coming up is not meant to break you up rather to test the strength of the family and that’s why I’m saying during these times loyalty and support is all what is needed. During hard times people should not give up, they should keep fighting harder. We saw from the book how the kids kept fighting hard to escape the poverty by moving to New York. Patience and persistence together with hard work is the only way to solve the problems. From the book we saw how the father was so patient hoping someday he will find gold to build glass castle for his family. When times are hard it is important for the family to stand up together to tackle all their problems. Looking at how the Walls family was struggling to get stable jobs and income, we learned that education is the key to everything, without education life is not going to be easy. Therefore it's important for parents to make sure that the their kids get the best education so that they can be successful in the future. Even the parents themselves need the better education so that they could find better jobs to provide for the kids. As we saw from the book how the parents struggled to find stable jobs because of lack of education. 24 Reference: Vandsburger, E., Harrigan, M., & Biggerstaff, M. (2008).

Please write in my English American level: I went to the Deaf school and then I learnt what Deaf world was like, which fits my life well. Today I'm still learning the deepest of Deaf culture. Being Deaf can’t be the main barrier to lead to the failure of the big life dreams that I have. My life has been affected in various ways because of my status but that doesn’t make me fail in making my own decisions on my life. Learning about the Deaf characters and culture has made me view my status in a positive manner making me think on the privileges that the society has offered to me by giving me a chance to utilize the important privileges delegated to me. Though the society has offered several positive privileges to the Deaf, some of the people focus much on empowering the underprivileged hence hindering the Deaf from making special developments in their lives.When I was in a hearing school, I often felt overwhelmed and wanted to avoid studying and never wanted to go to college. My parents tried to convince me that school was extremely important, but I did not listen to them. One day, I told my mother that I wanted to receive a better education in a deaf school, and my mother did not want me to go to a deaf school because she believed that I did not care about education for my life. A few days later, I felt so disappointed that I was forced to learn unwanted lessons. I decided to keep telling my mother my goal was to go to a deaf school and my mother finally accepted it. I started to be joyful at that news and readied for a better education. As a college student, I applied for City college of San Francisco to learn more English and general studies and then transferred to the University. I am majoring in communication and public relations and minor in digital media. I personally love working with people, I feel very happy seeing them satisfied with their present and looking forward to their future, and I love learning different cultures, backgrounds, beliefs, traditions, and many things that I have never learnt before, although what i really would be glad to add to my personal experience is developing a new project, to develop a new website to make the hearing and Deaf worlds one unit so they will be able to communicate with each other to learn about their different worlds.My major is Communication and my minors are Digital Media and Family studies part of my passion is to do my research and analysis on negative things and change them in a positive way. I went there for class and felt "wow" about the building and respect different religions. I love learning different things. I am majoring in communication and minoring in public relations and family studies, I personally love working with people, I feel very happy seeing them satisfied with their present and looking forward to their future, I love learning different cultures, backgrounds, beliefs, traditions, and many things that I have never learnt before. My goal to make the hearing and Deaf worlds one unit so they will be able to communicate with each other to learn about their different worlds and so that we can get more opportunities. I am wondering if I can volunteer for one week-on August 18 until 25 and then after, I will take my time to socialize with different people. It would be a great experience for me. Thank you. Hope to hear from you soon. I would like to make a new website which looks somewhat like Facebook and Couchsurfing which serves both the Deaf and Hearing people whatever race and religion they are, everybody can join the social media and make new friends all over the world which will allow the possibility of making new friends, having a familiar face to visit outside your country, have a person guide you around a new city to learn new things like Deaf and Hearing cultures, countries' history, cultures, foods and etc.

The Glass Castle
Question 1
Jeannette has been portrayed in this article as a very happy and curious young girl. She is loving
and caring with the ability to cope up in any given situation that the family got into in their
pursuit of a better and prosperous life. Having had a chance to live in different environments any
different meeting people with distinct personalities, she was able to develop the social skills that
turn out to be essential not only to her life but also the family as well.

The ability to socialize with anyone in the environment she ever lived made her develop the
survival skills despite the challenges the family had. With her social expectations high above the
hindrances in the society, she was able to live a focused and objective life with an anticipation
that things would eventually work out for the family and herself as well.
The moving up and down of the family with some reasons of Jeannette’s dad being tracked down
by the FBI made Jeannette harden and learn various survival tactics wherever they went. For
instance, in areas where they went to seek some rental houses, the inhabitants of these places had
a social life of gambling, corning others among others intolerable social behaviors.

Question 2
In both cases, the children got themselves in the society in the social zone that was initiated by
the struggles that the families went through on the verge of trying to live a better life. The

3
hardship these children are exposed to enable them to try and find friends irrespective of the
environment they kept changing.
In the two situations, the social environment was close to the children’s homes and in an
informal social setting which is different from those that socialize informal environments like the
schools and other social institutions.
In the Zastrow’s case, thein interaction between children took place in a particular social setting
whereas Jeannette’s experience the social environment was not defined (Zastrow, 2013). The
environment kept changing according to their up and down movement.

Question 3
The Walls family is composed of the children the parents and to some extent the grandparents.
They tend to work progressively together to achieve a common goal. In most cases, the dad has
been the decision maker and determines who does what, how and when in a systemic manner.
The form of communication initiated is based on a central point in which the decisions are made
and passed down to the rest of the family members, and an action is taken irrespective of what
the family feels about the latter.
A real family as described by Zastrow is the one that does not relent on its pursuit to do what is
right for the best of the society through proper utilization of the available resources. No matter
the challenges that might be experienced, the adequate interaction will yield a socially moral and
developed environment. A positive family makes decisions that would ensure everyone gains
and that the parents can provide for their children.

4
Question 4
The constructivist theory is applicable because, through perceptions and experiences that are
real, children can learn different social values in the community. For instance, Jeannette’s family
keeps on moving up and down in pursuit of better lives based on the experiences the family went
through, running away from the FBI.

Question 5
Her first days in school were faced with a lot of challenges because of alienation of the peers.
Those that were new in school hardly had friends from the first days. However, this changes with
time as more groups of students in the schools are formed (Walls, 2017).
Through the grouping of the students, rivalry arises and leads to bullying as well as determining
how these students intend to play with one another. However, wherever these challenges are
noticed by the teacher he or she ought to ensure students coexist well both t school and home.

Question 6
Jeannette’s experience is well described by the psychological maltreatment. At a very tender age,
she is exposed to adverse conditions and an up and down movement which leaves her
questioning the dad why they have to do this. Her dad’s pistol also leaves her psychologically
disturbed asking herself lots of questions as to why the FBI was after her dad.

5
Question 7
The events that influenced Jeannette were the desire to achieve something different and ability to
socialize with people in the society. To change the way things were run in the family as well as
being to be able to look up to the peers and role models who would impact her positively. The
desire to go to school was one of the events that influenced her life the development stage.

Question 8
The family can remain united despite the difficulties they face as a family. They at the same time
defend themselves together, and the dad plays a role in ensuring their peace within the family,
and every person is secure. On the contrary, they are limited by the level of illiterate and prone to
drugs and substance abuse

Question 9
The conflict concept describes the causes of poverty in the Walls family. This is amplified by the
conflicts that arose in the family. As a result, domestic violence and alcohol consumption. The
dad does little to help the family get out of poverty thus leaving the family dissatisfied and with a
lot of disharmony within the family.

Question 10
Homelessness is a result of social service programs and the failure to create an economic base or
opportunities to not only the poor but also the entire community.

6
Question 11
The family could not be termed as inferior, but whatever that exist in their minds is just the
perception. The family spends a lot of time and resources to run up and down rather than settling
down and focus on eradicating poverty.
Substance abuse and illiteracy are had also contributed to poor decision making and laxity in
exploring opportunities.
