She secretly hires Minny to clean the house and teach her how to cook to impress Johnny. Celia has never had a maid before and, because of her kind nature, she treats Minny with great respect, which Minny is totally not used to, and the two slowly become friends.

Hansberry gives us many examples of her caring nature, starting when she first enters the play, when she takes care of her plant. The plant is old and withering because it doesn’t recieve much light; however, Mama never gives up on her plant. This plant symbolizes the love for her family, even though they do not always have the right intentions at heart, she loves them and tries to nurture them back to health. Another prime example of her caring nature is how she treats Travis, her grandson. She “babies” him in a way, like when he does not make up his bed at first she questions why it is not made, but then she makes it for him.

Edna even says herself, “I would give up the unessential…my money…my life for my children, but not myself.” For her life, Edna realized that means her marriage and physical life. As far as her marriage, Edna was never truly happy with her marriage with Leonce. Furthermore, Edna states she truly cares for her children, but sometimes her search for herself may conflict with this. This then further discourages readers even more due to the fact that this gives insight to her actions, and somewhat justifies them. In addition, the search for self-identity is viewed as important in today’s society.
Scout said herself the only time she sees Aunt Alexandra is at mealtimes or before bedtime. When the children do converse with Alexandra, the conversations are often kept short, awkward, and rude. “When I appeared in the doorway, Aunty would look as if she regretted her request” (Lee 176). Scout was constantly reminded of how she feels pleasant with Calpurnia. Calpurnia is a better mother figure than Aunt Alexandra.
“One reason materialistic people are so unhappy is that they often lack gratitude” (Wallace). Gratitude is the quality of being thankful and many materialistic people are like that because they are not fully thankful of what they do have and they are just thinking about what else they can have to make themselves a happy person. Esperanza is not having gratitude about what her parents could get for her family and she is instead complaining and hoping every time they move, it is to that so talk house. She is certainly not recognizing the fact that her parents may have work their hardest to afford the house. Kids, like Esperanza, are not conscious enough of financial situations.

Taylor knew from a young age, that this life was not for her. Her mother knew this as well in saying “Mama always said barefoot and pregnant was not my style. She knew.”(3) Taylor was not one to be content with being a man’s housewife. Her strong trait of independence was realized and taking action.
