Jackson Family Feud

After reading "LA Times Jackson family feud to court-ordered investigation" I side with the court and the decision they have come upon now. The decision they have agreed upon is that T.J. will take care of the children's schooling, household, staff, and security, and that Katherine will take care of the financial allowances. I feel like this would be the best option for the children because, when they were with Katherine they were held against their will in Arizona. Another reason is I feel like the children should stay with T.J. is because Katherine is getting old and children are very stressful as the article stated, "They have claimed mismanagement of the estate was affecting Katherine Jackson's health, and Randy Jackson insisted she went to a spa on doctor's orders to relax." (Ryan). Katherine is 82 years old and raising three teenagers would be a very stressful and very hard job. T.J. has had a lot of experience raising children/teenagers, since he's helped raise his brother Blanket who was 10. Overall I think what they have agreed upon now was the right solution for everyone, not just the kids, but for Katherine too.

Suli Breaks Video

        The Suli Breaks video was an eye-opening video. The video was him rapping about why he hates school but loves education. My reaction to the video after watching it that it made a lot of sense. Kids might love to learn but hate the school environment. In the video the major theme that Suli was trying convey was that exam grades don't determine individual's strengths. People posses talents that don't show up certain required subjects, and these grades shouldn't determine their success later in life. I agree with Suli's message because not all the major subjects are relevant to today's society. In this age of technology it isn't required for certain careers to need to know a high level of math. The video was saying you shouldn't be judge on getting an A on a test. I think that people should watch or even just listen to the spoken word poetry.

Conflicts Between Parents and Children of Hitler Youth

There were many conflicts between parents and their children in Hitler Youth. It was very hard for the parents to support their children in what they believe in. Since the children had to go to Hitler Youth they might have started to form their own opinions on Hitler and what he believed in. The children would eventually also become soldiers. This was hard because the parents didn't want their children to be fighting for Hitler. Another way there was a lot of conflict is parenting. It was hard to be in control of your children when they had different perspectives on Hitler. There were many things that contributed to the conflict between children in Hitler Youth and their parents.
