100 Persuasive Essay Topics Persuasive essays are a bit like argument essays and persuasive speeches, but they tend to be a little kinder and gentler. Argument essays require you to discuss and to attack an alternate view, while persuasive essays are attempts to convince the reader that you have a believable argument. In other words, you are an advocate, not an adversary.

I'm sure you will. The one thing he did as a kid that he doesn't do now is procrastinate. This is what he wrote on his resume page at Linked in. "To grow professionally is to grow as a person... The best way to excel at what you do is not just to truly enjoy it but also, to surround yourself with like-minded individuals. Hope this gets you motivated. And just remember you always have a choice in how you one day raise your kids. I was pretty much raised the same way, but decided to do things differently as an adult and the way I raised my son. by jadelovesjava Jan 19

You must be very proud, that is incredibly impressive! I wish I had the same upbringing but unfortunately I got the "go to school, get good grades, go to college" treatment - though it could be way, way worse. I really wish I had been able to make my own choices like that as a kid but even if I can't go back, I'm going forward with the most open mind possible so that I can salvage a few of my dreams. Maybe I can end up as successful as he. by sandfan Jan 19

He's a network engineer. Who said video games were bad for children. Actually we got him his first computer when he was about 6. He took it all apart one day in his room and told be he would put it back together. I have a brother who use to do that as a kid and he's an engineer in Atlanta. I knew he was going to be fine, because he always wanted to know how everything worked from the inside. He surrounded himself with the right people and by the age of 20 was working with homeland security. I always let him make decisions when growing up ( even if I had to use psychology) so he could make the right ones when he got older. I tried to always treat him as an individual. Most people live there lives through their children and don't care what there children want. They tell them to go to school, get good grades, go to college. I believe it's very important to actually listen to your kids and treat them with dignity in helping them go through with there dreams; not ours. by jadelovesjava Jan 19

Wow, that's some pretty impressive stuff. Hopefully someday I can raise my child the same way :) by sandfan Jan 16

Great site for great literature. Home schooled my son many years ago. He is now 24 and making a 6 fig. salary without even a high school diploma. Guess educating himself worked. Free education= power to the mind. When people are given the tools there is no telling what they can accomplish. by jadelovesjava Dec 29
