Later that morning, we arrived at Gordmans and paced through the store looking for bargains. I tried to shop, but was too distracted. Finding a chair, I sat and hoped my mom was doing okay. Finally my dad called and told Joy that my mom was rushed to the emergency room for a C-section. An overwhelming sense of panic ran through my body.

When her mother was giving birth to the baby, he was born dead, she then needed to do a hysterectomy, she could not have more babies.
Influence is the prime factor in the way choices are made. Things like past experiences, self relevance, and cognitive biases build up the influence in decisions. In “Abuela Invents the Zero” by Judith Ortiz-Cofer, Constancia makes a number of decisions that are influenced by cognitive biases, self-relevance, and past experiences. The text specifies this by saying, "I 'm so embarrassed that even though the woman next to me is shooting daggers at me with her eyes, I just can 't move to go get her" (Ortiz-Cofer para 14). Constancia and her grandmother were sitting in church and were being judged by the woman sitting next to them for the way Abuela was acting.
This is the situation my mom was faced when giving birth to my sister, a situation that no parent should ever face; a preventable experience. My sister was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, and autism. When she was four her doctors told
Esperanza recognizes a somewhat better role model in Alicia. However, although Alicia has managed to provide education for herself, her role as the women of the house forces her to come home each night; “Close your eyes and they’ll go away, her father says, or You’re just imagining. And anyway, a woman’s place is sleeping so she can wake up early with the tortilla star, the one that appears early just in time to rise and catch the hind legs hide behind the sink, beneath the four-clawed tub, under the swollen floorboards nobody fixes, in the corner of your eyes” (Cisneros 22). The effect that gender roles have on Alicia’s life is expressed when she explains the imperfections she sees in Mango Street to her father who attempts to convince her otherwise. Her father’s standard, and further, the community's standard of women is too strong for Alicia to counter.
The most noteworthy conflicts were balancing motherhood and her role as a political figure. For example, during her tenure as an activist, strangers and colleagues benefited from her affection, time and devotion. Whereas, her children did not and this ultimately negatively impacted her children's lives in their failed social relationships. Another role conflict that she experienced was her role as daughter-in-law and mother. Often, in public opinion Eleanor was branded as a bad mother, which was an unfair observation from outsiders which weren't privy to her authority being emasculated on a daily basis by her mother-in-law.
Phrenology, Surveillance, and the Sociology of Interiority” reasons that: “There is also a problem with Lucy’s consistency: she sometimes seems to invite the very kind of intrusion she normally struggles against, and she also does not always respect the secret space of others” (53). After Lucy discovers Mme. Beck in her room the second time – it takes time for her to come to terms with what it means for her to be spied on and the potential repercussion. Once the second incident with Mme. Beck occurs, Lucy’s façade about her thoughts towards this invasion of privacy falls for a
Edna fully understands that society would brand her as a terrible woman, but she does not view herself as a bad person. There is an external and internal difference that Edna hopes to one day reconcile. Chopin, instead of creating tension within Edna, created tension within the society and Edna with her newfound independence does not mind how society classifies her. Decisively, it can be concluded that the tension between outward conformity and inward questioning builds the meaning of the novel by examining Edna’s role as a wife, mother, and as nontraditional woman in the traditional Victorian period.
The sunlight from outside was beaming through the shades and onto my white comforter that allowed my body to feel so cozy in my bed, which made it that much harder to wake up and get dressed. “If you don 't get up within the next five minutes, I 'm leaving you home!” my mother exclaimed.
