Question 11 (B) Important

You have been asked to present an evaluation of the approaches of the mothers of both, the baby seagull and Amanda, towards helping their children. Write this presentation draft including your insights, in about 120 words, comparing the approaches of both parents.

You may begin this way:

One acknowledges that both parents, Amanda’s mother and the baby seagull’s mother both....however, ...

(Reference -Amanda! & His First Flight)

Answer:

One acknowledges that both parents, Amanda's mother and the baby seagull's mother, both love their children and want them to grow up and succeed in life. However, their approaches towards helping their children are very different.

Amanda's mother is overbearing and nagging . She constantly criticizes Amanda for her appearance, behaviour, and imagination. She does not listen to Amanda's feelings or wishes. She does not encourage Amanda to be herself or to explore her potential. She makes Amanda feel unhappy and rebellious. On the other hand, the baby seagull's mother is supportive and motivating. She knows that her baby is afraid of flying, but she does not scold him or force him. She gently nudges him to try and gives him positive feedback. She also tempts him with food and praises him when he succeeds. She makes him feel confident and proud.

In conclusion, one can say that the baby seagull's mother is a better parent than Amanda's mother. She helps her child overcome his fear and achieve his goal with love and patience. She respects his individuality and nurtures his growth. Amanda's mother, on the contrary, hinders her child's development with her harsh and unrealistic expectations. She suppresses her individuality and stifles her creativity.

Step-by-Step explanation by Teachoo:

 The answer has three parts: an introductory sentence, a body paragraph, and a concluding sentence. 🧩

  •   The introductory sentence introduces the topic and the main idea of the answer. It also states the similarity and the difference between the two parents. 💕
  •    The body paragraph gives two paragraphs that describe the characteristics and actions of each parent. It also shows how they affect their children's emotions and outcomes. 🐦
  •    The concluding sentence summarizes the main idea and gives an opinion or a judgement based on the comparison or contrast. It also restates the similarity and the difference between the two parents. 🏆

 The answer uses transition words to connect the sentences and make them flow smoothly. 💯
