However what Nea does not understand in all her youth and idealism , is that sourdi does not want to be saved: She willfully accepts her fate and her marriage to Mr.Chhay because she finds financial stability and a secure future.

For example, they buy her nikes, and jean jackets and allow her to reveal hair out of her hijab, they are pleased with Marjane wanting to be modern rather than a fundamentalist woman.Growing up I rebelled, I did so in a positive way I disliked to go outside and play like other kids, I enjoyed going to school and learning unlike the other kids. My mom grew up getting into fights and being a troublemaker in her neighborhood, she was surprised to see that I refrained from getting into trouble or getting involved with drugs and alcohol at a young age. Just like young Marjane I rebelled, and everyone looked at me different for being who I was. However, they do not always encourage her rebellion, her mother forces her to pray, “If anyone ever asks you pray during the day, say you pray, you understand?” (75/6) in this case her mother wanted her like everyone else to keep from being killed or taken away. In another instance she starts smoking
I also loved the friendly relationship between the director and Sonita. Rokhsareh was concerned about Sonita’s freedom as much as Sonita does. When she helped her to reach her goal in singing, when she gave her mom the money to leave Sonita in Iran, when she went with Sonita to Kabul so she can make a passport although it was so dangerous. She was the only one who supported and believed in Sonita. I really disliked how her mom was treating Sonita.
It will become ordinary.” (atwood). After the Handmaid’s were fully trained by the aunts, each of them was sent to a commander’s house, and became his mistress and “instrument of pleasure”. Despite of the dangerousness of the system, rebellious acts still existed though it was limited. Offred’s aim was to stay alive in the system, yet she managed to resist the system in many ways, but her resistance did not threaten the system, “her small resistances were ineffective or counter-productive”. one of her very simple rebellious acts, was when she stole butter from the dining table to use it as hand lotion because cosmetics were not allowed anymore.” there’s a pat of butter on the side of the plate.
“The syllables of the word Araby were called to me through the silence in which my soul luxuriated and cast an Eastern enchantment over me” (87). The main reason the narrator had taken an interest in going to the bazaar was when he and the girl he liked spoke “She asked me was I going to the Araby. I forgot whether I answered yes or no. It would be a splendid bazaar, she said she would love to go”(87). The young girl couldn’t attend the bazaar and the young boy thought it would be a nice gesture to get her something.
Mukherjee’s sister doesn’t believe it’s fair that the U.S. can try to punish her, when she’s always acted as a great member of society in the United States. She believes the treatment of immigrants like herself in the U.S., is often unfair and full of criticism. Her main focus is returning back to India when she retires, because she identifies with her home country. It’s there when she can feel accepted and fully comfortable in her surroundings. The U.S. doesn’t give her that vibe, and as conflict about immigration continues to worsen here, it only pushes her closer to India’s way of
An example of this would be a parent who places their children in a wide array of extracurricular activities and/or actively speaks to educators about the accommodations their child needs to effectively learn. Natural growth is a parenting style where the child is left to carve their own path in a sense, but is left with a more reserved attitude. Some examples of this might be that they are taught to trust authority and not question it or they are more likely to make their own fun like play with the kids around the neighborhood rather than be in organized activities set up by their parents. What Lareau found through her study is that those families who were in the middle class displayed a concerted cultivation parenting style while those in the working class displayed a natural growth parenting style. While reading Unequal Childhoods I kept finding

In attempts to shelter children from a cruel and harsh world, parents often create a utopia in which their children can grow and flourish. This plan of perfection has flaws because children eventually grow up and develop into someone curious of the outside world and its magical wonders. A similar situation occurs in William Shakespeare’s The Tempest. Prospero arrives on a stranded island with his three-year-old daughter, Miranda. This causes him to want to make her life perfect and free of cruelty.
Babysitting can be considered hidden intellectualism because it allows me to adopt intellectual skills such as patience, critical thinking, and time management. By using these skills, I can also practice comparing and contrasting the many ways of dealing with problems a child might cause, and determine the best course of action to resolve a real-life situation in real time. Being with two different families showed me different ways to care for a child, and how the method is chosen can affect the child in the future. Growing up, my parents never took me to daycare instead they let my grandparents take care of me, on one hand, I would get spanked if I did something wrong and on the other, my Grandma would give me M&M’s from my grandfather’s secret candy stash, and being raised with two different families made me realize the pros and cons of each. Although I had loving grandparents who gave sweets every day, I also had stern ones who helped show me how to survive the daily world.
