Ruth is really hard to like especially when we as reader see what's really going on with Dawn and what she's going through. Ruth always turns to Barbra thinking that one of these times something will change. I really think that that's a bad idea and she shouldn't do that. If i were Ruth and i kept getting nervous calls concerning a child i would try to do so much more than give the mother another chance. Dawn almost killed herself because of her mother not being there for her and loving her like normal parents would do for their children.
In fact, she is a loving mother who struggles to convey her love to her children and only knows how to do so by enforcing respect and proper behavior through discipline. Her blunt ways are frequently misinterpreted by both the characters in Like Water for Chocolate and its readers. She only gives Tita laborious tasks because she trusts Tita and believes that it is Tita’s responsibility to carry out these duties due to family traditions that were passed down from generation to generation. Her objection to Pedro’s proposal when he asked for Tita’s hand in marriage was due to her apprehension of what may be the outcome of the two’s relationship. Traumatized, she wanted to protect her daughter from the severe mental pain of forbidden love and did so by stopping Pedro from ever becoming an influential figure in Tita’s life.
At first it might seem as if Faye’s problem is more dire than the mother in “A Sorrowful Woman”, but it soon becomes clear that that is not the case. While Faye struggles with the fact that she cannot have children, the mother in the second piece already has a child but has become unable to handle and love him like she should. These are both problems that occur in people’s lives and are usually not spoken about openly, yet the author of “A Sorrowful Woman” really goes in depth about the mother’s deep seeded depression and want to withdraw from life while it seems like Faye’s problem is just as upsetting, yet seems to be glossed over and goes immediate to the solution to make the issue disappear, and fast forwards to their happy
These survivors and their families had suffered the aftermaths for many later decades after the end of World War ll and death of Hitler. The army and politicians crush them and exploited them for many decades after seizing the genocide and occupation in 1945.

He suffers from insecurity, and this weakens him mentally, which even makes Mrs. Ramsay to think that her husband would have wrote better books if he had not married (58). Mrs. Ramsay also demonstrates her imperfections. Although she plays the roles of protector, supporter, and hostess voluntarily, she yearns for the time and space to be just by herself. With lots of people to take care of, Mrs. Ramsay is always busy being conscious of the vulnerability of everyone else, especially her children. In addition to this, they share the same acknowledgment that nothing lasts forever.
In the year 1933, the persecution of Jews and their families due to the holocaust had begun. Hitler had come to power, and made Nazi Germany believe the Jews were the problem. The Jewish families were forced into hiding or else they would be taken away to concentration camps or killed. One of the families in 1945, being persecuted were the Franks.

I saw you. It wasn’t fair!” (Jackson, 224) It is apparent that she is not necessarily distressed over the practice of the ritual, but specifically that she is the victim, as she states they should start over, so that a new victim will be chosen. “I think we ought to start over,” Mrs. Hutchinson said, as quietly as she could.” (Jackson, 223) This differs greatly from Jane, who begins to sympathize with the plight of all domestic women through her experience with the woman behind the yellow wallpaper. Although she initially frowned upon the woman’s efforts to escape, the more her mental health deteriorated, the more she began to relate her plight to that of the trapped woman, both prisoners desperate for escape. With her newfound revelation, she sought to save the trapped woman from her prison, subconsciously freeing herself in the process.
Dadi speaks upon the importance of the mother in law, the mother in law was to be respected in any way possible when you were a new daughter in law. If the mother in law was not respected the husband would teach the wife a lesson for not respecting his mother. Now, daughter in laws exert their power towards not only their mother in law but also their husband. In early era, daughter in laws used to fear their mother in laws as they were not to speak up for themselves on how they were treated, as Dadi explains. As times have changed we take notice on the difference of how Dadi speaks on her experiences to what we see now with the interaction with the daughter in laws and her family in law.
When I am angry at her, I have to be careful about how I express it. In my opinion, expressing anger towards a peer or even one of my siblings is much more different than to my mother. For example, sometimes if I am upset or angry with my sister, I express this by yelling at her which is something I can not do when expressing emotions like anger to my mom. It would be very unacceptable and disrespectful to yell at my mother. My mother does not seem to have many emotions that are unacceptable to express towards me as she uses emotional labor to suppress expressions that I shouldn’t be exposed to.
