why does the Hispanic community enforce their women to be dependent on men?

Question by jazzy: why does the Hispanic community enforce their women to be dependent on men?

I’m half white and half Hispanic and the Hispanic side of my family is always asking me when am i gonna get married when am i gonna start having kids and they always say things make sure the guy you marry has money or a good job (which is irrelevant to me since i have a good career in progress and i take care of myself) (besides I’m only 21)the white side of my family is always telling me to go back to school and get my masters degree in case i ever has a change of heart with my current career and so on…all my Mexican cousins who are 20 yrs old all have children and none of them work and all my Irish cousins are all single with no children with college degrees why does the Hispanic community keep themselves (especially the women from succeeding in life) It seems like Hispanic women main goal in life is to find a man they can support them both financially and emotionally 100% (i agree most relationships should be 50/50) its kinda like they are raised to be incompetent of anything but having many children

I come from the same mix but I feel like its more of a “make the family bigger” thing then a “keep the women prego” thing.BTW my white side is more selfish and self centered and they encourage that in their kids.I think “To thyne own self be true” I rep the half breeds!

It might be the way they interpret their religion. Male dominant religions really encourage women dependence on men.

The Gift of Therapy: An Open Letter to a New Generation of Therapists and Their Patients (P.S.)

The Gift of Therapy: An Open Letter to a New Generation of Therapists and Their Patients (P.S.)

The culmination of master psychiatrist Dr. Irvin D. Yalom’s more than thirty-five years in clinical practice, The Gift of Therapy is a remarkable and essential guidebook that illustrates through real case studies how patients and therapists alike can get the most out of therapy. The bestselling author of Love’s Executioner shares his uniquely fresh approach and the valuable insights he has gained—presented as eighty-five personal and provocative “tips for beginner therapists,” including:

  • Let the patient matter to you
  • Acknowledge your errors
  • Create a new therapy for each patient
  • Do home visits
  • (Almost) never make decisions for the patient
  • Freud was not always wrong

A book aimed at enriching the therapeutic process for a new generation of patients and counselors, Yalom’s Gift of Therapy is an entertaining, informative, and insightful read for anyone with an interest in the subject.

Speaking directly to the current generation of counselors, The Gift of Therapy lays out simple suggestions that blend personal experience with professional objectivity. This is a book that will remind you why you entered the field in the first place. With tips on avoiding diagnosis (except for insurance purposes), when to disclose personal information, and why it’s important to leave time between patient appointments, the recommendations are aimed at therapists, but they may be useful to patients who want to know what to expect from their counselors. Some references to the DSM-IV may be a little over the layperson’s head, but in general the writing is clear and understandable for lay readers as well as professionals.

Each chapter is just a few pages long, a nice format for busy folks whose reading time occurs in snippets. A single topic is addressed in each chapter, and author Irvin Yalom doesn’t waste any time in getting to the point. Many of the sections revolve around balancing the “magic, mystery, and authority” that come with the job of freeing your clients of their reliance on you.

From when to offer an occasional hug to finding the perfect time for deeper questioning, Yalom’s experienced observations will help you achieve even greater professional effectiveness while avoiding some of the more obvious traps in this HMO-directed age of mental health care. –Jill Lightner

Friends Like These: My Worldwide Quest to Find My Best Childhood Friends, Knock on Their Doors, and Ask Them to Come Out and Play

Friends Like These: My Worldwide Quest to Find My Best Childhood Friends, Knock on Their Doors, and Ask Them to Come Out and Play

Danny Wallace has friends. He has a wife and goes to brunch, and his new house has a couch with throw pillows. But as he nears 30, he can’t help wondering about his best childhood friends, whose names he finds in a long-forgotten address book. Where are they now-and where, really, is he?

Acting on an impulse we’ve all had at least once, he travels from London to Berlin, Tokyo, Australia, and California, risking rejection and ridicule to show up on his old pals’ doorsteps. Memories of his 1980s childhood-from Michael Jackson to Ghostbusters-overwhelm him as he meets former buddies who have blossomed into rappers and ninjas, time-traveling pioneers, mediocre restaurant managers, and even Fijian royalty.

Danny’s attempt to re-befriend them all gives remarkable new resonance to the age-old mantra, “friends forever!”

Children to single parents tend to seem more advanced in their learning abilities?

Question by Rosie: Children to single parents tend to seem more advanced in their learning abilities?
I have noticed amongst my family and friends that children who are born to single parents or separated parents have the tendency to be more advanced in the early stages of life as opposed to children being raised by a stay at home mom with the dad at work all day.. Such as learning their ABC, they also seem to learn things faster they socialize better with people.

Is this just an observation in my point of view or has anyone else noticed this?
I don’t have any children so this is why Posted the question?

Best answer:

Answer by Me, myself and I
I believe it’s just an observation in your point of view. Never noticed it. Then again, I don’t really know many single parent families.

Interesting. I think my girls are “advanced” and they are from a two-parent family. I work and they go to daycare.

I really don’t think “advancement” is defined by how many parents one has. There are other factors involved – parenting skills, genetics, environment, etc.

Cutting Loose: Why Women Who End Their Marriages Do So Well

Cutting Loose: Why Women Who End Their Marriages Do So Well

One out of every two modern marriages ends in divorce, and 75 percent of those divorces are initiated by wives. Author Ashton Applewhite is one of these women, having sued for divorce after enduring an unfulfilling ten-year marriage. Cutting Loose is a wonderfully appealing book for women who want to leave their marriage but fear the consequences.

Shattering the media-generated image of the lonely, deprived and financially strapped divorcee, Applewhite provides a much needed reality check. Cutting Loose introduces 50 women, varying in age, race, class and predicament, who have thrived after initiating their own divorces. Their fears of financial, emotional and romantic ruin were never realized; on the contrary, their lives improved immeasurably, and their self-esteem soared.

Cutting Loose also answers the crucial questions: How do you finally decide to make the big break? What is getting divorced really like? What are the shortcomings of the legal process? What about custody and child support? financial and emotional survival? and how does a woman’s self-image change during and after divorce?
