Bessie, Miss Temple, and even Mrs. Fairfax watch over Jane and give her the affection and direction that she needs, and she furnishes a proportional payback via looking after Adèle and the understudies at her school. All things considered, Jane does not feel as if she has discovered her actual family until she fell in love with Mr. Rochester at Thornfield; he turns out to be even more a related soul to her than any of her organic relatives could be. In any case, she can 't acknowledge Mr. Rochester 's first proposition to be engaged in light of the fact that she understands that their marriage - one in view of unequal social standing - would trade off her self-sufficiency. Jane also denies St. John 's engagement proposal, as it would be one of obligation, not of enthusiasm. Just when she increases money related and enthusiastic self-sufficiency, in the wake of having gotten her legacy and the familial love of her cousins, can Jane
Their youngsters, who feel adored; whatever is left of us, who are saved disagreeable expe- riences with adolescents raised without affection or warmth; and mothers most impor- tantly. For, in relinquishing, a mother feels strong and liberal; and in guild she finds the motivation to right wrong.

Nanny attempts to insure a better life for Janie by forcing her to marry Logan Killicks, an old and wealthy man. Blinded by her own dreams, hopes, and desires, Nanny makes many impositions on Janie, “Have some sympathy fuh me. Put me down easy, Janie, Ah’m a cracked plate” (Hurston 20).
Jane Eyre obtains her goals at the end of the novel by using her faith in God, nature, and herself to overcome her obstacles; this faith and strength also keeps her family and the judging, oppressing nature of man from stopping her from obtaining what she wants in life. As previously stated, Jane Eyre, the main character in the novel, is forced to face many different challenges in her life. She is orphaned at a young age and is made to live with her aunt, Mrs. Reed, who despises Jane and is only keeping the young girl around because Mr. Reed made Mrs. Reed promise to raise Jane. Thus, Jane’s childhood is unloving and she is constantly bullied by her cousins, particularly John Reed. This abuse and neglect causes Jane to be someone who holds intense grudges for a long time and who does not love, nor is loved, by anyone.
Since a young age, the protagonist had been dependent on a family that considered her inferior to them. Therefore, as constant undeserved punishments were imposed on her, she describes, “had I been a sanguine, brilliant, careless, exacting, handsome, romping child - though equally dependent and friendless - Mrs. Reed would have endured my presence more complacently,” (11). Jane’s plain exterior was a significant factor that contributed to the emerging self-defensive wall between herself and those around her. The hatred which penetrated the protagonist’s soul brought forth a continuous battle for justice, independence, and righteousness. Had the protagonist conformed with society’s ideals, Mrs. Reed may not have rejected her niece in the abusive, cruel manner in which she did.
Family is the most important influence on a child’s life. Children always depend on their mother, father, or both to support them. Family is supposed to support each other because they want them to succeed and excel in life. Having a supportive family is always a great feeling. You may have a lot or a little support but if it’s from family it makes you feel good.
This society shapes Jane to be a woman who respects her social expectations but not at the expense of her autonomy. In the beginning of the text, “Jane encounters a series of unfortunate life experiences that allow her to achieve a semblance of selfhood through work that enables her to recognise her oppression by various dominant powers.” (Jennifer Santos, p. 1) The first half of Jane’s life she is in residence with her aunt Mrs. Reed and cousins, who dominate her. Jane is then sent to Lowood School where she learns the life skills necessary to become a governess. During her stay at Lowood School she is oppressed by her headmaster Mr. Brocklehurst, who is quoted as being “The embodiment of
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
One of these people, the Marquesa De Montemayor, demonstrates this change particularly well. The Marquesa is extremely devoted to her daughter, Dona Clara, giving every bit of her heart to her child. Because of this affection in addition to a difference in personality, Dona Clara comes to resent her mother, and the two become very much estranged. The Marquesa De Montemayor changes
This resentment towards their culture most likely stems from the strict rules their parents enforce and the urge the girls feel to “fit in” with American teenagers. Regardless of the efforts to blend into American culture, the girls realize that they do not seem to fully fit the mold of either culture. Specifically in “The Rudy Elmenhurst Story”, Yolanda states that “I saw what a cold, lonely life awaited me in this country. I would never find someone who would understand my peculiar mix of Catholicism and agnosticism, Hispanic and American styles.” (99). This passage is a pivotal moment in Yolanda’s life because it establishes the moment when love no longer has the same meaning as it did before.
The message that is most prominent in The Bonesetter 's Daughter is that the lack of communication in relationships is harmful both to the relationship and the people in it. Tan makes this point over and over again using examples of: mothers, daughters, spouses and partners. She shows that when people don 't say to other what they really mean or feel, misinterpretations can lead to hurt feelings, strain in the relationship, damaged sel0images and self-destructive behavior. Than Makes a point that all can be resolved, but usually it takes time and talking. The story also suggest that in youth many things have to learned before on even things to question human intention, or even how their actions may come across to another, through mother and daughter relationships.
