I would say that Gregor 's situation was worse, since not only did he have to listen to the harsh comments, he was also physically abused by his father when his father threw the apple at him. However, I would argue that Gregor balances his father 's severity with his affection towards his mother and sister. His affection is seen when he becomes desperate to see his mother while she and his sister were moving the furniture from his room. He also tried to tell his sister to play the violin in his room; No one rewarded her music as much as he. Whether his love for his sister was the brother-sister love or something else is subject to interpretation.
With only one desire: to eat. I no longer thought of my father, or my mother… I would dream. But only about soup, an extra ration of soup” (Wiesel 113). Gregor’s parents become increasingly indifferent to him because of the change of him. “Earlier, when the door had been barred, they had all wanted to come in to him; now, when he had opened one door and when the others had obviously been opened during the day, no one came any more, and the keys were stuck in the locks on the outside” (Kafka 18).
It’s made me face things I’d sort of ignored before” ‘ (26/27, Hayden). Jadie Ekdahl almost never speaks, but her family insist that she speaks all the time at home despite showing no evidence. When Torey Hayden starts teaching her class, everything about Jadie’s life as she knows it changes. Abuse has been suspected by the school before, but with Jadie reaching out to Hayden, it is almost certain now; all they need is solid evidence. Torey Hayden is determined to reach out and help Jadie Ekdahl through trust with her suspected abuse and odd behavior in Ghost Girl.
In one scene, Marji is stopped by two Guardians of Revolution, because she had been seen improper clothes. But as much as children’s freedoms were curtailed, they opened up new possibilities for play and games. Satrapi’s comics shows ways in which children rebel against and subvert social codes. For example, one scene juxtaposes children’s responses to the imposition of the veil when they are supervised and when they are free. The first row shows Marji and other children, wearing their veils and looking bored; the second row shows Marji and her friends playing in the field using the veil as props in various games.
One particular time was when we were playing croquet and she hit herself with one of the mallets and even then she thought to herself in her little 4 year old head that it would be fun to get me in trouble, so she worked up some tears and went inside. Next thing I know my dad came out yelling , why the heck are you hitting your sister with that mallet and I didn 't even know what was going on but I still ended up in trouble and my sister kept playing and now she 's older and keeps on coming with more clever ways to get me in trouble and she still has gotten me in trouble an uncountable amount of times but I still love her because she is my little sister and if anyone hurts her I will make them regret their life decisions leading to that point. Now my sister is 11 and loves volleyball ( my mom makes me go to my sister volleyball games ) and we don 't fight as much but we still bug each other. 2.The second most important event in my life happened in 3rd grade when I met Seth Mccurry he is my brother from another mother. We always go skateboarding at the skate park in shelly and every time we go there is no one there and when we’re not at the Skate park we are hanging out
One night, she heard her parents arguing and struggling in terrible wrath to each other and saw that they are struggling for the knife where her father had ordered her to take the knife away from her mother’s hand and so she followed and tossed it out the window. Engracia continuously spat and slapped Pio as soon as she was released from his grasp then clutched Martha and told her words that were foreign and strange, words that were only half-understood but Martha was crying. When Martha was eighteen, she fully understood the night that had been a blur to her when she was still twelve. She fell in love with a guy not older than herself, and her seriousness and innocence with love hindered things such as fun or flings and she asked him about their marriage and he just laughed at her. After her heartbreak, Martha had inflamed the hatred she kept against her father for
In subconscious of the boy, he needed to protect his sister. He remembered a TV drama that he had watched recently, with a scene of a man fought with others in order to protect a girl.

These guidance approaches include questioning skills, which the child’s mother used frequently. This approach can be observed when the child was seen running around the place with his arms stretched out. His mother called him over and asked, “What did I tell you about behaving in public? Will you like it if someone is making a lot of noise in public? I know you are bored but you are disturbing the other patients in the clinic.” In response to this guidance approach, the child shook his head and sat next to his mother
His initial response to the Trinity Soup Kitchen was startling. Neil was aware of his prejudicial view of these people, but he knew that his view was borne of ignorance. The diners were of all ages. There was a separate room for mothers and children. There were toys and games for the young to play, and if they left with one, nothing was said.
Murray was burning through his fifth cigar of the cycle, and the whole ship was now filled with the bitter scent of his tobacco. Carsa had confined him to his cabin in the hope of calming him, but he could see she was as stressed out as him. Everybody was. He damned the ambassador under his breath. If only the god-damn politician had done his job properly.
