Because of her immaturity she has a bad relationship with her parents and her brother even though her thoughts are justifiable. The story is split between the parents versus the children on the relationship they all have and how they contribute to each other’s character. The main character is a strong and passionate little girl who is not affected by seeing the deaths of farm animals which are given humane names but cries out her because of her inability to do the things she wants because of the expectations of her gender. Her father and mother are traditional in their outlooks and in their portrayal of farmhouse life. The family represents typically working class american family that is built on their faith, work ethic, place in the world.
She simultaneously loves and resents her children because, while she is their mother, she feels that they have taken away her freedom and self-purpose. As Edna journeys in her awakening, she strives to find meaning for herself as Edna, not her children's mother. To prove she is more than just a mother, she distances herself from normal motherly responsibilities. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children. If it was not a mother's place to look after children, whose on earth was it?”(Chopin, 15) Edna's neglect of her children stems from others expectations for her to submit to and look after her
While as informed by the author Beloved has no good intentions but only to cause Sethe pain, Seth can’t because she is blinded by her aim to make it up “to her daughter.” Blinded by her love for her daughter, Sethe continually shares information about her past with Beloved which ultimately serves as a catalyst for the materialization of unpleasant memories she had lived to suppress. While Denver, Sethe’s child relates well with Beloved under the impression that she is creating a bond with her, she is oblivious to the fact that beloved is using that opportunity to make her mother suffer and destroy her. Through highlighting the experiences of these characters at this point, Morrison sets out to use the trauma theory to show the implications of trauma and the actions people result to to go through their experiences. In this case, the author shows guilt as an outcome of trauma and how Sethe blinded by her guilt gets exploited and even at some time her pain get intentionally added. Informed by the insights of the trauma theory, the author shows the far-reaching implications of trauma where in the case of the characters, they become reckless and oblivious even in situations where other people seek to abuse and cause them harm (Kreyling
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
He's too ugly too look at, people get scared when they see him because of the way he looks. Although, he feels loved by his mother, that's always there for him when hes has no one to turn too.

The girl wanted to be closer to her father in spite of the fact she was afraid of him a little and did not know what he thought about, unlike her mother. “In this he was quite different from my mother, who... would tell me all sorts of things” (Munro 3). Narrator’s mother was ready to share her memories with daughter, but the girl did not view her as a true ally. The woman wanted to implant her child woman behavior, and the narrator did not want to play a standardized female role. The girl did not like any types of the housework and did not obey to her mother or other female relatives.
But Nancy made a decision to leave the relationship despite her parent’s pressure. Everyone from her parents to her siblings to her uncles and aunty, felt she made the wrong decision. But she never cared about they opinion. Nancy made her decision based on her happiness and been tired of her parents controlling her. Just has the song says “Don't let them control your life, that's just how I feel” (nico and vinz, paragraph 3).
She is like any other mother in the world, who wants to talk with her child about school and work that she also does. She tries to communicate with him as much as possible, but her son does it tough for her. Once her son screamed at her “I’m sick of you spying”, it broke her heart. It shows us how much she loves him. Perhaps the mother has an illness too that makes her imagine unrealistic thoughts.
Sethe longs for the relationship she was denied with her mother. Sethe tells Beloved: “You came right on back like a good girl, like a daughter which is what I wanted to be and would have been if my ma’am had been able to get out of the rice long enough before they hanged her and let me be one.”(203) Her obsession with mothering her children is a direct result of her denied role as a daughter, but it includes more than her need to protect her children. She is also obsessed with isolating her children from the community that has condemned her
At first Josie hated her father Michael for what he did to her mother, but then ends up opening her heart to him and accepting him into the family. She also didn’t get along with her Nonna that well at the start, but after realizing what her Nonna went through when she was her age, Josie and her Nonna started to see eye to eye. The reason Josie didn’t get along with Katia (Nonna) that well was because of the way she treated Josie’s mother. If Christina (Josie’s mother) or Josie ever did or wanted to do something Katia will always say “people will talk” and that really annoyed both of them. Josie’s relationship with her mother is a love hate relationship, one minute they love each other to bits and the next they’ll be screaming and throwing stuff at each other.

This issue also causes much friction between the whole family. My mother gets tired of having to hear all of her problems. My cousin thinks that everything bad that happens in her personal life, is all the other family’s fault. Without a doubt, all teens can learn something from the lesson that the author is trying to get to the reader of how we should never give up on something that we love or care a lot
