Annie, thank you for your nice feedback on my presentation. First, let me elaborate on what I was trying to get across to the class. In addition to parents causing difficulites for their kids (i.e., fathers discouraging their daughters to seek higher educations), they also, at the same time provide resources (i.e., although some fathers do discrouage their daughters, some also encourage them to go as far as they can in school).
In other words, it is often the case that people that are important to you can create challenges and provide resources (i.e., parents, siblings, peers, relational mates, teachers, etc.). Hope this helps, Ed.
