The next day, Minny called Aibileen and told her that she went to Hilly’s house and “got her back” because she was telling everybody that Minny steals. At this point, we don’t know what Minny did, we find that out later. While she was on the phone with Aibileen, her husband Leroy came home and started hitting her. I can guess that he was drunk. I am sure that he didn’t find out that she lost her job because he would kill her.
After Baby Suggs died and her brothers disappear, Denver tries to learn how to live with her mother just to not be the second victim in 124 Bluestone Road "I love my mother but I know she killed one of her own daughters, and tender as she is with me, I'm scared of her because of it… I spent all of my outside self loving Ma'am so she wouldn't kill me, loving her even when she braided my head at night" (Morrison 392; 397). Because of Sethe's insufficient nurturing, Denver lives a "paralyzing infantilism" (Philip 139). She pays for her mother's bloody past which affects her psychological development. Denver, who has fragile personality, is trapped in childhood. She lives most of her life entombed within the walls of her house because she views the outside world as a place where "things so bad had happened" (Morrison 460).
As Scout and Jem grow older they learn to cope, take responsibility and are introduced to new aspects of life, one of which is racism. People of the town including children refer to black people as “Niggers”, and raised to think of black people as lower class individuals. “To Kill A Mockingbird” has a strong message towards racism, this is learned from Scout & Jem as they mature throughout the novel and are constantly being exposed to demeaning segregation in Maycomb County. In giving Scout a lesson about racism, Atticus also does the same for the readers of the novel. This happens when Scout asks Atticus what the term ‘Nigger-lover” meant, after being insulted several of times and not knowing if it is an offensive word or not, but had a slight feeling it was when Atticus was being called at.
In fact, her inability to teach at a University is probably the main cause of her anger because she never complains about her heart problems or her artificial leg, in fact she does not hesitate to prove to people that she can function as well as anyone else; as demonstrated when she climbed up the latter ahead of the Bible salesman. However she constantly speaks philosophical statements to her mother, which suggests that she has a bruised ego, because she is unable to teach despite the fact that she earned a Ph.D. in Philosophy. These are the reasons she expresses her annoyance by making unnecessarily loud noise with her wooden leg whenever she moves around and she directs random outbursts toward her mother for no specific
I know this because Kambili confronted her mother after her mom confessed that she poisoned Eugene. On page 290 it states, “ Why did you put it in his tea? I asked Mama,rising. My voice was loud.

There is also an example of when Twyla 's mother comes to visit her at the shelter and greets her, babying her a little, she thinks then: “I could have killed her”. What is intriguing, is the fact that she mentions a desire to kill her own mother two more times – first, in the chapel, when the mother could not sit still. Twyla describes this moment, saying: “all I could think of was that she really needed to be killed”, she repeats that a moment later, when it turns out that her mother did not bring anything for a lunch. Twyla reflects once again: “I could have killed her.” She is also not empathic to other 's suffering. Twyla is not concerned with the woman who is mute and works in the kitchen, Maggie, who is being humiliated by the older
Her obsession grew so much that she was putting her entire salary on buying a forth wall-TV, even when her husband was still trying to pay for the third one. As a side effect of her obsession we can also see a certain type of constant memory loss, for example when she forgot that she tried to commit suicide or yet again the fact that it had only been two months since they had bought the third tv screen, "We 're already doing without a few things to pay for the third wall. It was put in only two months ago, remember?" "Is that all it was?" being the answer to his question (9, Bradbury), and the time Guy asked her if she remembered how they met and since she wasn’t able to remember she just tells him that “it doesn’t matter” (20, Bradbury) Mildred character represents all the citizens that lived in this society, she represents the efforts that a woman had to make to be considered beautiful.

Differences between people have been around since the begin of mankind, they have started great disasters such as every war ever started, deaths, and sometimes disappears. In the nonfiction passage Confetti Girl, by Diana Lopez, and the nonfiction text from Tortilla Sun, by Jennifer Cervantes, both the narrator's point of views differ from those of their parents, therefore creating conflict between each other. In Confetti Girl, the narrator is the little girl that feels her father is ignoring her because he cares too much about literature. In Tortilla Sun the other little girl feels her mother cares only about getting her degree and is not concerned about the needs of the girl. In Diana’s story the tension is created when the girl is not treated the way she was used to, and when her father is not listening to her conversation, in Jennifer’s story tension rises when things don't go the right way, and when bad news is given.
