Sein's insight:

prejudice can spread among the children with their personal experiences baceause children usually donot have much though and get influence and to be belive  easily.Many times parent pass on prejudice beliefs to their children and some  told  their  good friends and most of the time they belief and follow.It will also pass down to their next generation and will keep going.It is because they soak in the assumption and prejudices around them and take them in by way of vicacious learning without thinking about what they are learning with any critical awarness.Therefore,young children often experiences some of prejudice against them throughout their time in school.However we can prevent prejudice from happening among our younger generation.I feel that firstly adult must set good example or role model for them to follow.By allowing them to explore and discover other people cultures ,beliefs, and the things around them,in order to do this adults need to educate and teach children to understand and respect other people differences and the diversity of nature.

i agree with this as prejudice always rises from small ages and till when they are of a sensible age will remember everything about what they were told about prejudice when they were young and most probably use that mindset when they are older as it is etched in their heads.

Jared Kwang's curator insight, July 29, 2014 2:16 AM

I feel that this is a good example of how prejudice is infecting people  through the youth. it starts with primary school when they start learning about each other, why they are different from each other. when they slowly grow up, they start using actions or talking bad against each other. Children should learn that we are all the same underneath. Beneath all that skin and muscles we are all the same we shouldn't discriminate other for we are al the same.

This shows how prejudice can actually be developed in an early age if not taught properly. "external instruction and experiences play distinct roles in how children characterize other groups of people" stating that we have to be good examples, not promoting prejudice in any way, so as to prevent children at a young age from getting a habit in criticizing other people, be it their skin shade or negative things that they hear from others. Parents should do their part by focusing more on teaching kids at an early stage about positive elements of equality and diversity, as "young children's "expectations about experiencing prejudice will be shaped by the beliefs that are communicated to them by adults"" Young children should be taught about different cultures and how everyone is equal despite having different racial or religious groups and that the heart is all that matters and nothing else.

Sein's insight:

I strongly agree that now a day human labor are replace by robot tech to produce massive product thus result in many unemployment so poor people still  stuck in poverty cycle. I feel that HUMAN CARD is a very good way to solve poverty .As it taken care of basic necessities .Once basic necessities are taken care of ,people will going to pursued what the world offer them, as people will want more than  what they have. I think it will also greatly benefit a country economic progress .However I still think that there will be peoples taking for granted. Yes i also agree that government for example US shouldn’t spent so much money on military strength  and should eliminate very expansive programs such as agencies that do not benefits human race directly instead should spent the large sum of money on social warfare .In conclusion I think if HUMAN CARD  exist despite of some disadvantage ,it will really help poor people get out of poverty cycle .Further more HUMAN CARD will not only benefit the poor but to most of the business for example hospital ,food producer etc. They can be as rich as weapon producer.

Sein's insight:

After reading this article I feel that government should spent money and effort on this to make sure that there people are in good living condition and government should also encourage more able people to help those people facing poverty in this society through charity fund or volunteer work .I also feel that government, communities, and the school should work hand in hand to support and help those student who are facing poverty so most in need will get help.

I agree with Bunaiya's insight .To the point that they could not afford using the heaters during winter season is really heart-breaking. The government should help them and give them money .

I think that able people and goverment should spent money and effort to help them to keep them warm.Goverment,communities , and the school should work together to support and help those student who are facing poverty so most in need will get help.
Jasmine Choo's comment, February 3, 2014 2:20 AM
I agree with Bunaiya. We all need food, warmth and water to survive. However, some people out there are not as lucky as we are. They need to make sacrifices just to provide. The government should do more to provide for these people. We should also learn to cherish and be satisfied with what we have.

Sein's insight:

The measure that government  published was excellent .I am very pleased that the government put large sum of money to help poor children get out of poverty cycle by improving their living condition .It is because often the reason a person is poor is because of lack of opportunity. We should see why a person is that people are not able to get good paying jobs mostly because of not well educated. In my opinion Better housing, communities, offering parent jobs and giving all children more chance to learn, these few measure are very important for a child in order to be help them out of poverty cycle.
