People look forward to spending time for rest, recreation, and leisure. In contemporary times, there are diverse choices of recreational activities that individuals, groups, or family members could select from. One affirms that the choice of recreation or vacation endeavors depend on the person’s concept of what constitutes a satisfying vacation. The current discourse hereby aims to present a description of the elements that create a satisfying vacation from one’s perspective.
First and foremost, one of the elements that would create a satisfying vacation is to presence of loved ones or a special someone. One affirms that any endeavor is made memorable if loved ones openly support or accompany me through the journey. One, therefore, looks forward to a fun-filled vacation with parents, siblings, and a special loved one. The camaraderie and bonding that could be further enhanced with the vacation, one is looking forward to, would be made happier and more fulfilling. The presence of loved ones is an affirmation of holistic support that makes any vacation satisfying.
Secondly, another element for a satisfying vacation is the perfect location. One’s concept of a perfect location for a vacation is a venue that is out of the ordinary daily routine: a beach, another country, or a pilgrimage to Rome. One looks forward to visit places where one has not been into. There are lots of beaches in different states that could provide a perfect recluse to an otherwise, busy schedule. Likewise, one would have wanted to visit other countries such as Japan, Singapore, or Dubai. Visiting other countries would provide varied opportunities to rest, relax, and also learn from the culture and people. Concurrently, Rome has been dreamed of as a place to be visited: the Vatican and the Colosseum, to name a few. One would have really wanted to be given the chance to see the Pope and be blessed as one of the pilgrims.
The third element which is deemed important for a vacation to be classified as satisfying is possessing enough resources (funds and time) to spend.
It would be impossible to plan to visit other places without any funds or designated time. Vacations are always planned and money is saved to be earmarked for the journey. Money is needed to spend for accommodations, food, transportation, souvenirs, and even unexpected expenses (medications, delving into adventurous activities, or attending concerts). Likewise, students could only afford going to other places, with parents or loved ones, during semestral breaks. Parents or other adults, who are to accompany children, need to apply for vacation leaves from their employers.
As such, ample time and enough money should be appropriated to have a satisfying vacation.
Overall, three important elements were described to create a satisfying vacation from one’s perspective: presence of loved ones, the perfect location, and enough resources. Each individual is entitled to be given a brief respite from the hassles of life. Therefore, one needs to plan ahead of time to ensure that the coming vacation would be fruitful, memorable, happy, and satisfying.

Assignment 6.3: Compare and Contrast
Parents are just two separate individuals with distinct personality types and preferences, who decided to be joined through matrimony. As such, one expects that there could be differences in opinions, ways of thinking, personal and professional goals, as well as parenting styles. According to Kopko (n.d.), there are four different parenting styles determined through level of control and warmth: authoritative, authoritarian, permissive, and uninvolved. The current discourse hereby aims to present a comparative analysis of parenting styles.
Authoritative parents were noted to manifest traits such as warmness and firmness. As emphasized, “they encourage their adolescent to be independent while maintaining limits and controls on their actions”. These parents allegedly allow their children to express their points of view; while retaining sole responsibility for decision-making. On the other hand, authoritarian parents were revealed to be exhibiting very little warmth; yet high in control. As such, these parents are actually described as being disciplinarians, restrictive, punitive, and does not allow any inputs from the children. Concurrently, permissive parents are known to be on the opposite side of the other two parenting styles, in terms of displaying excessive amounts of warmth and virtually nonexistent control. As described, “they are indulgent and passive in their parenting, and believe that the way to demonstrate their love is to give in to their adolescent’s wishes” . Finally, uninvolved parents, are on the extreme side where almost no amount of warmth is exhibited and manifest indifference in control.

One is convinced that the health care field poses greater challenges than non-health related professions. The distinguishing factor that make the health-related careers more difficult is the direct accountability to another person’s life. Specifically, the nursing profession is deemed dynamic in terms of the need to be regularly apprised of current and future trends to focus on patient care. The current discourse hereby presents perceived challenges in the nursing profession.
One of the prominent challenges in the nursing profession is the need to gain appropriate theoretical frameworks in nursing. There are different courses and programs that would equip nursing students on concepts and theories on health care. Likewise, learning is considered a continuing endeavor. Depending on the person’s professional goals, the level, depth, and extensiveness of educational background should fit the skills needed to make a nurse competent in this discipline.
Another challenge noted in the nursing profession is the diversity of the clients being served. Contemporary health settings are more diverse with people coming from different demographic and cultural orientations. As such, nurses should not only be theoretically equipped; but more so, culturally aware and competent to address varied health needs.
Finally, the nursing discipline faces challenges in terms of balance supply and demand of nurses. Some health care institutions were reported to be understaffed which affects the level and quality of patient care. Therefore, government and educational policy makers must be able to assess demand for nurses more accurately and provide motivational incentives through educational support and work opportunities.
