The reflection paper about human development class

We have all been kids at some point in our lives. So, learning more about how children develop and grow has provided me with additional understanding in how I have become who I am today. Studying development has also help me learn more about my future. By understanding the aging process, I’ll be better prepared when I face issues associated with growing older.

I’m a parent and, studying human development has taught me a great deal about my children. In addition to learning things that can help make me a better parent, I have gain a greater insight into how my children behave, think, learn and feel. Development is a complex process, so learning more about how kids grow physically, socially, emotionally and cognitively.

Possibly most importantly, studying human development has made it easier to spot possible signs of trouble. From problems with physical or cognitive development in early childhood to emotional struggles later in life, being able to identify potential problems is important. The earlier developmental problems are detected, the sooner intervention can begin. No matter what the situation, early detection and treatment can lead to better outcomes.

Shannon Adair’s Personal Life Philosophy

Shannon Adair’s Personal Life Philosophy

Research Paper

LE-1350-400-Sp16

April 17, 2016

 

 

My own life philosophy, each person is unique we all have different ideas and opinions, we all practice different beliefs. Our personal philosophy affects how we carry out our everyday tasks, and influences our reactions to different situations accordingly. My philosophy was developed naturally over time. The atmosphere in which we are raised is a primary factor in constructing our beliefs and attitudes, or philosophy. Role models have some bearing on the way we perceive life, and the way in which we express ourselves. I didn’t choose my life philosophy, it evolved along with my thoughts and beliefs as I grew up.
I have had many experiences in my life that have taught me valuable lessons. These lessons include everything from “it’s ok to go to bed angry, because sometimes you just need to go to bed the problem will either work itself out or you can think more clearly after sleep.” to “Share with others what you have. Even if it is just a smile, share it.”

Another thing I believe in is taking responsibility for my actions. Accepting responsibility has two basic components. Accepting personal responsibility – which is taking ownership of your own behavior and the consequences of that behavior. Until you accept responsibility for your actions or failures, it’ll be very difficult for you to develop self-respect or even have the respect of others. It involves moving beyond yourself and taking action to help people or situations around you that call for assistance. It reveals something about your character and the type of person you are. Clearly, there are many people who’d walk right by a person who is down on his luck.  However, there are others, who’d stop and try to help.

Something else I have learned is to always try to do my best, no matter what the task may be. Whether it is trying a math problem or a new food or even jumping out of an airplane, I will always do something at least once, and I am always persistent when it comes to trying to solve problems or complete a specific task. Every day, in every aspect of our lives, we have the option of doing our best work or something less. If you’re not doing your best, then you’re operating at a lower level, you’re compromising your standards and you’re setting yourself up to create bad habits and attitudes that accept consistently substandard performances.

Every relationship, friendship, romantic, or otherwise is a series of gives and takes. For the relationship to work, both people must contribute to and get something from the relationship. If you just give but don’t get, you’ll feel used, exploited, taken advantage of; if you only take but don’t give, you’re a freeloader. At the end of the day, what matters most are the people in our lives. Speaking of relationships, Marriage changes, the person you married will change over time. You will change over time. Hopefully you will change in the same direction or come to love the changes in the other person. Don’t let these changes take you by surprise.

It seems like there is always an exception to the rule, but I want to be unwavering with my decisions and feel confident that they are right. I know my parents did an excellent job raising me, and I can distinguish “right from wrong.” Circumstances always vary, but I will be impartial in my judgments. I will always reflect on previous situations, and learn from my mistakes. Adaptations will be made to my philosophy as it is shaped and molded into a better more effective version.

Don’t judge. Everybody has a reason for doing what they are doing. Its human nature to compare ourselves to others, whether it’s to our family members, peers or even celebrities we see in the media. We base our judgments of ourselves and others on these comparisons.

Judging others sometimes gives people a sense of prestige because demeaning others can create a false sense of security and identity.

When it comes down to it, people are different. No two people are completely alike. We need to accept these differences and stop judging people. It is hurtful to them and makes the people ridiculing them look bad.

I am still learning and creating my own philosophy. By researching philosophers’ thoughts and creating my own opinions on lives ‘big questions’ I am beginning to make my philosophy which I plan to follow in the future. I think it is going to take time to actually be able to live my philosophy, but I have my whole life ahead of me and plan on taking my own path based on my beliefs.

REFLECTIVE WRITING:

 

What impact did the assignment have on you or your understanding of the world? Did it challenge any of your assumptions?

The biggest obstacle is misinformation. Since HPV is a sexually transmitted infection, many parents may think their daughters don’t need to be vaccinated until they’re sexually active but that’s a mistake. The vaccine only works to its full potential if it’s given before a girl is exposed to the virus young people in the United States engage in sexual practices that place them at risk for STIs and subsequent illnesses such as cervical cancer. A lot of kids these days are having sex before they graduate high school and even more are having sex before they get married. So the likely hood of young people getting an STD is extremely high. I agree with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that young girls and even boys need to be vaccinated to prevent the infection for HPV but to say that every girl and boy must be vaccinated it taking it a little to far in my opinion. We as parents need to be the ones that make that decisions and also be the ones to be education our children about the risks that are out there. So, maybe the answer isn’t mandatory vaccinations but more education about the conquests of unprotected sex.

 

How does the assignment illustrate the growth/change/progression you have had in this class?

This assignment has made me think outside of my box. in my experience as a student I have learned that no matter how uninteresting I may perceive a subject to be at the beginning of a semester, with the right attitude, I leave that class changed. So the question is, what the right attitude I must have is.  There are many and some are hard to pinpoint, but some of them are painfully obvious and seem to run true over my many years of observation.  First of all, you have to have a real passion for the subject and the wanting to do well. The next attribute that I have observed in effective learning is their ability to break down barriers by listening to individuals in the class

• On the Yes side:
1. Summarize the major thesis.
Genital human papillomavirus (also called HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). There are more than 40 types of HPV. HPV can cause serious health problems, including genital warts and certain cancers. Anyone who is having (or has ever had) sex can get HPV.
2. Briefly explain the philosophical principles of beneficence/nonmaleficence, autonomy, and justice as applied to the YES position of this debate.
At this time there is no treatment for the virus. In some cases there are individual treatments for the symptoms. But vacating can prevent the virus in the first place. “Roughly 79 million Americans currently have HPV. About 14 million people become newly infected each year. HPV is so common that nearly all sexually-active men and women will get at least one type of HPV at some point in their lives”.- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; July 25, 2013; http://www.cdc.gov/std/HPV/STDFact-HPV.htm;

3. Briefly state in your own words three facts presented by the author about mandatory vaccination programs.
Some of the facts that the author states were that most people that are infected don’t realize they are infected. And that they are passing HPV to their sex partner. Also that “Every year, about 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 4,000 women die from this disease in the U.S. “And that “About 21,000 of these cancers are potentially preventable by HPV vaccines.- Centers for Disease Control and Prevention; July 25, 2013; http://www.cdc.gov/std/HPV/STDFact-HPV.htm;
4. Briefly state in your own words two opinions of the author presented in this article.
In these articles the authors were very factual, they didn’t input to much opinions that I picked on. It is very apparent that they are for the options of mandatory vaccinations due to the facts that they stated. They didn’t address much at all anything to the contrary of what they were stating.
5. State two scientific concerns about mandating the HPV vaccine and the position of this author on those two concerns.
Some of the concerns are that there is no treatment for the virus itself. And that people are dying that get this virus. The authors talk about how “Every year, about 12,000 women are diagnosed with cervical cancer and 4,000 women die from this disease in the U.S.” And the suffering is great.
6. What cause/effect relationships were stated or implied by the author? (What are some consequences of the author’s point-of-view on this issue?)
The authors addressed that there are ways to prevent health problems caused by HPV they can ; get a vaccine , they need to have routine screening like pap smears yearly, they should avoid tobacco and limit their alcohol intake and they need to use condoms all the time and in the right way. The authors also talked about treatments of the differed health problems if a person does get HPV, again there isn’t a treatment for the virus itself but for some of the individual symptoms there are some treatments like: Genital warts can be treated by a doctor, Cervical cancer is most treatable when it is diagnosed and treated early By a doctor, Recurrent respiratory papillomatosis (RRP) can be treated with surgery or medicines.

• On the No side:
7. Summarize the major thesis.
Required human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination of young girls has been suggested. A program such as this would take away rights from the parents and guardians and give those rights to the government.

8. State and briefly describe the 3 prongs of evidence these authors use to approach this issue.

They use the example of the 1950’s outbreak of polio, and how more than 58 000 cases of polio were reported, including 21 000 cases of paralytic polio and more than 3000 deaths. Terrified parents. So they enacted the 1905 Supreme Court ruling that stated that Compulsory vaccination of children for polio “such reasonable regulations [to] protect the public health and public safety” as long as such efforts did not “contravene the Constitution of the United States, nor infringe any right guaranteed or secured by the instrument.” consequently, the Court set a model for allowing compulsory vaccination programs to control epidemics and prevent the spread of infections.
– Bayer R, Moreno JD. Health promotion: ethical and social dilemmas of government policy. : Bayer R, Gostin LO, Jennings B, Steinbock B, editors. , eds Public Health Ethics: Theory, Policy, and Practice New York, NY: Oxford University Press; 2007:105–116.

Another “prong” to the authors approach would be the use of government control over individual choice, In other words, is the utility and good of a compulsory vaccine in preventing harm greater than the utility and good of preserving individual liberty and choice? Polio is not the only disease for which mandatory vaccination has been successful and publicly accepted. Vaccination is required for measles and several other diseases.

9. Briefly state in your own words three facts presented by the authors about mandatory vaccination programs.

The author states facts about how many women are infected in the United States each year and that it’s about 6.2 million new cases each year. And that in recent studies they have estimated that 1 in 4 women ages 14- 59 are infected with HPV and in some cases that can transform into cervical cancer. There are concerns that the vaccine was tested on only about 1,100 girls. The people that are concerned ate worried that there isn’t enough data to support the vaccine’s safety.

10. Briefly state in your own words two opinions of the authors presented in this article.11. Are the authors actually saying “No” to use of the HPV vaccine in teenage girls? Support your answer.

I’m not seeing that the author of this article is truly saying no to the use of HPV vaccine. As I read this article I feel more that the author wants us to do our own research and to think critically about our decisions individually and not just allow big brother to make out decisions for us. So, no, I don’t think that the author is out right saying no to all mandatory vaccinations. Because he makes statements like how “in the United States, it is common to use vaccinations to reduce disease, including mandatory vaccinations for diseases such as measles and polio that have relatively low incidence rates for serious harm.”
The author does also point out that there are differences in some cases like with HPV infections. That in this case the vaccination is being suggested as prevention to cancer and genital warts. And in this case these are related to a person’s sexual behavior at which then raises moral and social concerns.

12. What cause/effect relationships were stated or implied by the authors? (What are some consequences of the authors’ points-of-view on this issue?) Make sure to include the issue of the potential liberal “opt-out” policy.

Some concerns about the vaccine and it effectiveness are: that the vaccine doesn’t provide enough protection. There are several strains of the disease, The vaccine is fairly new, people have also questioned the long-term side effects, and People also question the data because the vaccine was only tested on about 1100 girls.

The author does also points out that Mandates make certain that the funds are there to pay for vaccinations. And that the mandates still allow people to opt out if they don’t want their child vaccinated.

• Overall:
13. Which author (YES or NO) impressed you as being the most evidence-based in presenting his or their thesis? Why? Are there any reasons to believe the writers are biased? If so, why do they have these biases?
I find myself agreeing with the “against the minatory vaccination” mainly for the same reasoning behind the author writing the article to begin with. I have a hard time having the government telling me what I have to do and when I have to do it by. The articles that were the “for mandatory vaccinations” I felt just didn’t have the scientific backing like the other article. Yes, they were factual but they did show both sides like I felt the other article did.

14. Which side (Yes or No) do you personally feel is most correct now that you have reviewed the materials in these articles? Why?
I feel that the vaccination is needed but I don’t feel that it should be mandatory at this time. I guess that if it does become a true academic then I might feel differently. But for now I believe that there is no reason in the world why this should be mandatory. Regular pap smears will do more for women in preventing cervical cancer than a vaccine.

15. What about the HPV vaccine being mandatory for teenage boys? Apply what you have learned from the reading in your argument here.
As for boys I feel that if it’s mandatory for girls then it should also be the same for boys. If we are going to force girls to be vaccinated then why wouldn’t we do the same for boys? They are the one that the girls are having sex with (for the most part)

16. Apply your reasoning based on your reading on this issue to the potential of a mandatory, annual influenza (flu) shot for all healthy individuals between the ages of 6 months to 65 years. If needed, some basic information on the flu shot can be found at http://www.cdc.gov/flu/protect/keyfacts.htm.
I feel the same with the flu shot as I do with any mandatory vaccinations. I do understand that as of now the flu shot is not mandatory to everyone but at my work it is mandatory if I don’t get the flu shot I will be fired. My belief is that the flu shot is only as good as the educated guesses of a group of vaccine researchers. Every year they try to predict which flu viruses will show up this year. So, in this care I really have issues with the effeteness of the shot.
