She lives her life as if it is her job to protect her cub until the day she dies. To the hoaxers it makes sense that she would conspire to kill child just to show the world she can still act. Ultimately, arguing that the parents conspired to kill their own children is illogical due to lack of credibility of inferences and the strength of a parent of child
You're the one who needs help. Your values are all confused” (Walls ). While Jeannette is trying to help her mother and bring her back into her life, she's unwilling to receive the help. Instead, she would rather stay in a hopeless world planted her mind and rejects her daughter. “Geneva remained in Fanny Culver's bedroom without saying a word about the fact that
One read poems to entertain himself. One of the sadness poetry is “Not Bad, Dad, Not Bad” by Jan Heller Levi. In this poem, Jan Heller Levi tries to re-establish the meaning of poetry as a medium that provides some kinds of daughter
Similarly to Edna’s character in The Awakening, Nora (the female lead), undergoes a rebellion against the patriarchy as well. Like Edna, Nora was conditioned to live a life characterized by focusing on others, rather than herself. She was to obey her husband and mother her children. Throughout the play, Nora’s demise due to her self-neglect becomes apparent. However, rather than cheating on her husband, Nora decides to be upfront with Torvald and leave him.
Because Amy has made up her mind, she refuses to go. To make her mother go away, she decided to bring up something that will deeply disturb her mother. She brings up her mother two dead babies. She says, ‘“You want me to be someone I’m not!” I sobbed.
Her anxiety and the fear of what will happen if the D.R. police were to find her and her family. Like her children, Yo’s mother can be represented just like the children told the tale of El Cuco. Consumed by the fear of Rafael’s dictatorship, she believes that if not well behaved, she, along with her family—will be taken away and punished for not following the rules. Also living in the United States, she must concern herself with Child Protective Services (CPS), an organization known for taking children from their parents, if neglect/abuse is heavily suspected. Not as harsh as Rafael and his police force, but for a parent like Yo’s
She really wanted to keep her baby. She needed someone to guide her in how to be a good mother for her child. Later, Cup thought of having a baby but then realize that she didn’t have anybody to help her care for the baby, that she didn’t have a mother to help with the baby so she decided to never have children (Brown 152). She didn’t see anything good of having a baby without the baby having a grandma to love it and spoil it (Brown 152).
The girl is able to observe her mother’s actions and extrapolate lessons, including how a mother would do anything for the benefit of her child. Although not all sacrifices are equal, an opportunity unseized would be an opportunity
The latter quote is clear evidence that people should not leave it to others to inform them of how certain concepts in life work. Janie listened to her grandmother’s ideas about love and went into her first marriage enormously unguided. In the end she felt very disappointed with her marriage to Logan, but nonetheless, she was able to learn that marriage and love were not always synonymous. If Janie would have never experienced marriage herself, it is very possible that she would have remained ignorant to the fact that a marriage between two individuals does not result in love every time. People should learn from Janie’s experience about witnessing and living things for themselves instead of just trusting the opinions and beliefs of
Characters in both stories, “Confetti Girl,” and “Tortilla Sun” are living with one parent who takes care of them. This makes room very tight for the parents, causing conflict and tension within the parents and kids. This also causes different mindsets/perspectives on what’s happening to seep into the kid’s minds possibly causing an alteration in the relationships with each other. “Confetti Girl,” by Diana López mentions a girl and her dad. They are eating dinner together as English
If Gonzales were to be deported, Torres would be left to continue raising her two born children, while also having to deal with pregnancy and eventually an infant child. How is a mother expected to do all of this without a father to help her out? The lack of one parent could eventually lead to problems with the children because the overview of three children can be near impossible. I believe that the most difficult part for Gonzales’ wife will be having an infant to raise alone, if Gonzales is deported. That is a life adjustment that, while she has done it twice before with her husband, is quite challenging to do solo.
In order for a person to learn, they have to either make mistakes or learn from others mistakes. Jeanette 's parents mistake was that they didn’t think about their future and they did whatever they could to survive their hardships. Similarly, Jeanette leaned from her parents mistakes that in order for her to be successful she needs to make a sacrifice and that sacrifice will lead her to a purposeful and a brighter future. She discovered many things about her parents as she was
As we learn from Hood’s story, the good intentions of the grandmother to spare her granddaughter from repeating the same mistakes, that she and the girl’s mother made, were inhibited by the grandmother’s poor communications, which only drove the girl away and steered the girl in the direction of the same sorts of situations and experiences that would result in the same types of heartaches as two generations of women before her. Knowledge and insight into the nature of things must be shared openly and in clear terms, if it is to result in true wisdom and is the best way to know that even if poor choices are made, we know that the next generation was clearly informed, so the outcome they have is the outcome they created and not the result of a lack of information and that if you want something to be clearly seen, then you should endeavor to generate more light, than
By working, Brenna will understand what it takes to raise a child on her own and everything that is involved in being a single parent. Lastly, I would work with Brenna and see if she would be interested in rekindling her relationship with her mother. At this time in Brenna’s she could really benefit from support from her mother. The interventions that I have set up for Brenna should help her be more independent in being a single mother and also try to find her
