At first, Susie seems to be thriving in the In Between, the world that her little brother, Buckley, dubs as “the arc of blue between heaven and earth”. However, she’s still torn between the urges she had while living and the call of the lighthouse that will show her the truth and allow her to move on. Eventually, supernatural aid kickstarts Susie’s development and want to leave the In Between to move on peacefully. The call of the lighthouse signifies the supernatural aid that Susie needs to start her journey to heaven.
In both scenes, one parent watches a television program of the events, but who watches changes. For instance, “Hazel turned to comment about the blackout to George. But George had gone out into the kitchen for a can of beer,” (text, 79). This is significant because although she has no handicaps, she cannot remember that her son had died after she turns to look. It shows that it will not affect her or her family because the government has made it so she can barely think.
This turned me off from the book, thinking it would a boring historical novel. Finally, after some convincing from my grandmother I decided to give the book a chance. The book is narrated by a young Jeanette Walls, Showing the raw truth of her childhood. Raised in an unconventional, borderline abusive family, they traveled all over the United States never fully settling anywhere. Although the Walls family does have some good memories
The memoir, The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls, centers around her unorthodox childhood, with her parents avoiding parental responsibilities and acting in accordance to their non-conformist beliefs. During some events in the book, responsibility is seen as equal to self-sufficiency in this book, and Rex and Rose Mary encourages Jeannette and the other children to look out for themselves instead of depending on others. Even though Jeannette’s parents were irresponsible and reckless, they managed to instill responsible, independent, self-sufficient qualities within Jeannette, creating a well-adjusted child. Hardships as a child allow the opportunity to develop a thick skin and become resilient. From a young age, Jeannette Walls and her siblings learned how to be independent for their basic needs because of their father’s, Rex, alcoholism, and their mother, Rose Mary’s, carefree attitude and indulgence in the arts.
The Walls are Permissive Parents In The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls the Walls family is a very peculiar family that are parented in a permissive style because they have very little rules, the children don’t tell them everything, and because as parents they look at life like a bid adventure. The Walls family is a very adventurous family that doesn’t really think about their actions because “they have low expectations and maturity” (Cherry, “The Four Styles of Parenting”). The shooting the kids had with Billy Deel is a great example why Rex and Rosemary are permissive parents, they give the children no punishment for their actions. Permissive parenting is showed because the children don’t tell them everything.

In The Glass Castle, Rex and Rosemary Walls can be categorized as permissive parents. Rex and Rosemary’s parenting style is permissive because they approach their children as more of a friend than a parental figure, they do not discipline their kids, and they have few demands expected from their kids. The Walls parents act more of a friend than a parent to their kids due to their easygoing nature. Rex brushes off Jeanette's complaint regarding Robbie’s inappropriate touching and does not take action as a normal parent should. Rex had the opportunity to punish Robbie for his behavior but decided not to: “I’m sure he just pawed you some, I knew you could handle yourself” (Walls 213).
While she does love a good fight, Scout cares more deeply about her father and pleasing him than whatever taunting she may face. Additionally, Atticus is teaching his children morals and values by taking this case, as shown above, the benefits of which greatly outweigh any negatives from taking the

This factor of controlling someone against their natural will can be seen as a violation of autonomy; therefore the use of love spells has been ethically debated. This informant was raised Pagan.

In my opinion, it seems like her mother is making irrational decisions regarding her social, emotional, and cognitive well-being. Yet, after reading Chen’s text, there are three valuable lessons I learned. First, I support the following notion, “the amount of time that children spend in play may be related to socialization beliefs about the role of play in development” (Chen, 2011, p. 95). Apparently, Vera’s family wants to prepare her to participate in a social role that cultivates her family system, rather than a social role that seems to benefit her solely. Hypothetically, running through a sprinkler system at camp does not seem as satisfying as sitting next to her parents at the cash register in her family
