  • Hi Rohan, I completely agree with your piece of writing. You tied your information together with certain parts of your book, and it flows really well together. I can relate to the correlation to realizing things after you read your book and it was very interesting reading your thoughts on different sections of your book.

    Crossover is a book written by Kwame Alexander in hopes of getting a very specific point across. One that will stay with you forever and that will really make an impact on how you go about your daily life.

    The effect your parents have is much greater than you think

    • Hello Ava. This was very interesting and I completely agree. I think that as we grow older our parents stop affecting us quite as much, and we start to develop our own thoughts which can create conflict. An article I read said “while young children emulate their parents early on, adolescents and adults who recognize negative behavior can manage the influence your parents had on you.” https://www.businessinsider.com/problematic-parenting-leads-mental-health-issues-in-adulthood-2019-9. It is an interesting concept for sure.

    • Ava, I enjoyed reading your piece. I agree that parents do have a big impact on your idea of culture, but also your values. I had never thought of the fact that as children, we want to make our parents happy and our childhood is where our values develop. As you stated, I think it’s important to recognize our parent’s influence on us more and appreciate what they’ve done for us. Your book sounds very interesting and I would like to read it.

    Your American values and beliefs come from the way you were raised as a child and form from certain things your family members believe in and what you inherited from them. The way of life and how people think

    • Ava, I enjoyed reading your response. Although I do agree that family plays an important role, I think that once off on your own, many people change their beliefs because their perspective changes in a new environment. Many people who have moved out, away from their parent’s influence, acquire completely new opinions. I do like that you mention your family gives you a foundation, because you may change your mind, but certain pieces of your original foundation will always be there.
