For, in relinquishing, a mother feels strong and liberal; and in guild she finds the motivation to right wrong. Women throughout time have been compelled to cope with the remonstrances of motherhood along with society’s anticipations
After meeting her mother she is dumbstruck by her realness and from then on in the book the word “mother” is capitalized (Arsenburg 118). In that same scene Angelou uses foreshadowing when she is struck silent by the thought of having a real family, foreshadowing her muteness after the betrayal (Vermillion 67). Foreshadowing is very rarely used in autobiographies, but Angelou manages to make it a beautiful thing. Angelou is praised for many of her literary choices and her “most valued technique...may be the precision she describes objects or places, a precision so sharp that readers carry that description with them, even when the book is closed” (Lupton 69). The way Angelou describes the setting reflects her mood and what is going on at that time in her life (Lupton 64).
The little girl is the focal point and driving point of the ad bring forth each event from asking her mother about the cereal to putting the cereal on her father’s chest; its all about her actions and reactions from the that push the point of the ad identified later with the word love being displayed in bold. The camera is always following the little girl and emphasizing her emotional response to all that happens from her look of curiosity to her big grin as she runs off out of the scene. Without her there is no ad because she is the part of family that people love the most. That unconditional love without any need for understanding or reason, and the audience’s recognition of this is what the advertisers wanted. According to Matt Rosenau (2012), advertisers draw on the emotional response of their audience purposely creating an emotional appeal and associating a positive emotion to the product even if not naturally associated.
Cecilia neglects the fact that she suffers from this, but throughout the book, it’s very obvious that she suffers from some minor effects of OCD. “Normally I can’t leave the house unless everything is perfect. I know I’m ridiculous.” Page 203. This quote is significant because it shows how much she suffers from OCD and the fact that she laughs it off by saying she’s ridiculous, seems as if she’s denying the fact that she suffers from any disorder.
To begin, many times, one can see parents giving treats or rewards to their children when said children are acting up. Not to “reward” them per se, but to distract the child enough to stop their incessant whining and screaming. A similar scenario occurs in The Miracle Worker. Helen is given a “reward” when she behaves negatively, to stop the wrongdoing for a short period of time. For example, Kate, the mother, says: “I don’t think one peppermint drop will spoil your supper” (502).
She tells more stories about her dad doing more positive things than negative, so when he did good things they stood out substantially. I think that some of the negative situations with Jeannette’s mother traumatized her as a child, so she clings onto those memories, rather than the good ones. Most students in my class agree with me, while some have their different

Rosamond is the daughter of a factory owner who is “very charming” and has “radiant vivacity” (Bronte 704-705). She proves to be the only exception to Bronte’s stereotype of the inverse relationship to beauty and personality. Rosamond is the unattainable goal that every Victorian woman strives for; beautiful inside and out. This goal described by Bronte is one that the women in the novel strive for, but will never accomplish. St. John, Jane’s cousin, feels a strong passion for Jane and tortures himself for feeling that way.
In the eyes of the new governess, the protection of Miles and Flora became the most important part of her life. Making sure that the children lived a happy life, far away from the danger of the past governess, created a constant paranoia throughout the novel. Love is a powerful motivator that led to the constant worrying of both governess’. This seemed to connect the lives of both the old governess as well as the new. Although the apparent hatred for each other is seen, the love for the children remained intact.
The overly critical one It’s great when your mother-in-law wants to be super involved in your child’s life, but it’s so not cool when she starts to critique your parenting style. One woman had her mother-in-law tell her that she expected to be given custody of the child when her and her husband realized she would do a better job raising the child. Yikes! 4.
Dee was shown to fluctuate between interest and disdain for her culture. When she does appreciate her culture, she only wants it for the wrong reasons. Dee wants the butter churner her uncle had made but only to use it for decoration purposes. She gets mad when she hears that Maggie was just going to use the blanket for “everyday use” and not appreciate it for its past. She even renames herself believing that she’ll be more in tune with her culture ignoring the fact that she was named after her aunt and her great grandmother.
The unique bond that exists between a mother and her child is practically unbreakable. A mother’s love is unselfish, unconditional, and knows no boundaries. Without the love and support of a mother, a child is like a ship lost at sea. The only way one can possibly repay their mother for all they have done is by giving her the same relentless love and affection that she have always given. In “The Lanyard”, Billy Collins implements juxtaposition, humorous comparisons, and metaphors to refrain the poet's message of love from lapsing into a cliché about parental love and convey the theme of a mother’s love.
In the virtual simulation, I was faced with multiple unexpected challenges such as my daughter’s diagnosis of ADHD and her temporary drug use and felt uncertain of what to do. So like most new parents, I took it one day at a time and accepted the fact that I might not get it exactly right every time. I also took advice from professionals, close friends and family when it was necessary. As long as I was putting my daughter’s well-being first and continuously showing her how much I loved her, I was satisfied with the decisions I made. My ultimate goal was to guide her and make sure she grew into a responsible, mature, and intelligent woman.
