They wanted to let her decide who she would marry instead of following the puritan way and deciding for her who she would marry.

Mary’s family did not follow religion when it came to marriage as Mary was able to decide to marry John Noyes as her first husband. There were also instances when there was a heavy presence of interest in Nathan Cole’s autobiography in Voices of Freedom: A Documentary History.

“Children are expected to strive for family goals and not engage in behaviors that might bring dishonor to the family” (Sue & Sue, 2016, p. 514). According to Pai’s grandfather, as a woman, she cannot be chief of the tribe even though she has a genuine love for her tribe and a deep desire to lead them. My reaction to the collectivism of the family was hard to watch. It is difficult or see Pai’s desires and Kono’s view of gender roles tear the family apart.

This was a verbal arrangement of adoption, so there was no documentation to prove anything. My hurt was soon dispelled as I grew up realizing that even though they were not my parents, “they were my parents”. Initiative vs. Guilt tells us that, In order for a child to have control over initiative the child must first learn and accept that there are things that are not allowed and things that they will need to be punished for. A child must be free to use their imagination without feelings of guilt or worry of being punished.
A lot of times we ask ourselves to imagine what our life would be like if we were unable to experience some of the fortunate things in life. We simply just scoff at it, as if it could never happen to us or someone close to us. I never really took a deeper look into how unfortunate experiences have shaped my life because I was fortunate enough to have parents who loved me unconditionally and taught me to be better. However, their pasts and the stories have pushed me to be someone’s advocate and support system because no one should have to feel insignificant. Growing up, I was an only child who lived with my mother, father, and maternal grandmother.

Barbara said her advice to a class of college students would be to study as hard as possible and learn all you can so you can get a good job later in life so then you wont have as many things to worry about like money, and being let go from a job over your lack of knowledge. Personal Reflections: Personally interviewing Barbara, my grandmother and getting details on her life has given me a feel of how it will be to grow older and watch the world change. Her view of life and how she handled her marriages and raised her children has put a goal in my head of how I want to be a devoted wife and caring mother to my husband and children in the future. Also how she is so devoted to church and just craving each day to be more and more like Christ and working to do so is such an inspiration to
