Through her mother’s criticisms, her lack of confidence, and her desire to fit in with the community, Charlotte is shown to be insecure. Charlotte’s insecurity is a partial result of her mother’s disapproving and unresponsive nature. Unlike Charlotte’s father, who listens attentively and enthusiastically to Charlotte’s day at school, Charlotte’s mother shows no interest. She simply gives a half-hearted comment, “without emphasis of any kind”(71), then changes the subject. Additionally, when Charlotte is distressed over Ms. Hancock's death, her mother gets irritated and blames her for “disturbing the even tenor of [their] home”(80).
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.

Maggie is a static character.
The one person that Lady Catherine questioned the most was Elizabeth, because she knew the least about her. She asked her about her upbringing and about the qualities that her and her sisters have. It’s clear that Lady Catherine wasn’t impressed by what Elizabeth told her, in her eyes Mrs Bennet (Elizabeth’s mother) failed raising her daughters the right way, because she didn’t hire a governess and because Elizabeth and her sisters lacks musical and artistic talents. This is clear in Pride and Prejudice in the scene where Elizabeth Bennet tells that she and her sisters never had a governess , Lady Catherine, reacts surprised: “I always say that nothing is to be done in education without steady and regular instruction, and nobody but a governess can give it.”(Pride and Prejudice,1992,p 140)What becomes clear by comparing these two scenes, are that both women, Miss Havisham and Lady Catherine think very highly of themselves, and don’t let anything happen without their permission. It’s very clear that they aren’t used to not having their way, which becomes clear when Lady Catherine is astonished by Elizabeths indirect answers and when Miss Havisham practically forces Pip to stay longer after he made it clear that he actually wanted to leave.
Tan’s mother then becomes unwilling to express her needs to the other since her broken English is always ignored. Yet what Tan expressed using perfect English is always be answered. For example, the stockbroker and doctor respond to Tan requested immediately but neglect her mother’s demand. Fence was built between the native English world and Tan’s mother’s broken English world. And that is the reason why many people have the fear of studying languages
In being enclosed this way she lacks comfort from family members and friends when attempting to adapt to the change. Furthermore, Ashima is presented to feel incapable of discussing her difficulty out of fear of disappointing the ones she loves. The harsh metaphor “the frigid New England chill piercing her inner ears and jaw,” implies that despite the intensity of Ashima’s situation she lacks the ability to speak or share her emotions, “she has kept her disappointment to herself, not wanting to offend Ashoke, or worry her parents.” This makes her feel trapped in loneliness emphasised by her physical surroundings that are “ice covered
She however is very reactive to this situation, she doesn’t tell anybody what happened, she steals late passes, hides in an abandoned janitor closet, and eventually ditches school. That example shows how irresponsible she is. House On Mango Street, by Sandra Cisneros, is about a young girl who moves into a new house with her family in Chicago Illinois in the early 1980’s. Esperanza is not a very happy person, especially after the year she had at the house on Mango Street. The reaction to this small house affects her to dream of living in a house of her own (Cisneros 4).

During the Blitz two little girls Penny and Primrose were evacuated from an endangered city to the countryside for the sake of their security. Girls had to deal with being away from their families. Byatt describes mansion as uncomfortable place for children: “there were no lighting, all windows were shuttered”, “Everyone was tired and anxious and orphaned” (Byatt 226).Both girls felt suffering and afraid “suffocating anxiety about what would happen if they wanted to pee in the middle of the night”, “they were afraid that in the dark other children would turn in the gang (Byatt 226). In much the same way, narrator and Sonny have grown up in depressive atmosphere of mostly black and extremely poor place in Harlem at the time when African American
She discontinued her painting lessons because she did not want any relationships with the people around her. Naturally, some were offended by her standoffish attitude so they stopped sending her gifts during the holidays. Emily became so secluded, it seemed like she and everything in her house were suspended in time. Even the townspeople described her wallpaper and furniture as archaic and dust ridden when they toured her home after her death. She rarely went out and she spoke of her acquaintances as if they were alive, which shows that she was unaware of the changes and developments around
She was afraid to commit to things. She couldn’t decide which club to join with Heather, what to make in art class, and she wouldn’t commit to doing any other homework besides for art. When she gained Heather as a friend, she wouldn’t want to hang out with her at first. Then, as time went on, she started to hang out with her, but still kept her distance. This got Heather aggrivated with her, and Heather ended up lashing out on her.
So, because she does not feel she can have someone who will understand her and not punish her for what happened, she does not speak. Her parent’s behavior toward her and each other make herself feel like she is a disappointment. Her mental state of mind is unstable and is struggling to process what happened to her. When her family and the people around her start pulling her down, she does not feel as strong and confident to stand up for herself and to face her so to speak demons. A perfect example of this is “I open up a paper clip and scratch it across the inside of my left wrist.
It is very difficult to think that the parents I work with do not see how others are also victims of the system. In one account, a woman “did not socialize with neighbors, usually kept her curtains closed, and generally did not allow her young daughter to play outside.” This ideology, which has been inherited from the days of Raeganomics, creates distance within the communities we work with and further isolates our clients. However I think that this propaganda worked to discourage the creation of communities and further isolate welfare recipients. When we contract with our clients, we talk a lot about their support system and community supports are really lacking in their lives. I feel that this disempowers our clients and they cannot work together towards a common goal when there are issues within the
