Richard slowly began to miss his home and his younger brother Kenny, he realized that it is not easy to be away from home in a long period of time. For example, “It made me sad that Mama had written to Peewee to day that she loved me. She hadn’t even told me that when I was leaving.” (121). At this point in the book, I realized that Richard was very young to be in the war by himself and didn’t know how to act when he was writing to his own mother. This connects to the theme by showing age can have an impact on somebody.
The narrator said, “During the first fortnight, Gregor’s parents could not bring themselves to enter his room…” He has been disconnected from his family to the point where they’re emotionally unstable and unable to treat him as he deserves with affection and comfort to help him cope with his metamorphosis. The narrator shows this disconnection before the mutation,”Gregor later earned so much money that he was in a position to cover the expenses for the entire family…” He later described the exchange not “particularly warm”. Gregor feels alienated by his parents because of the lack of affection for him providing for them. This change has long since happened but is in full affect more than ever since the transmutation. Overall Gregor has changed both physically and emotionally.
Even with incentive that the state offer to foster parent, the foster parents still gratefully decline. This was so hard for me to face these children because we couldn’t find them permanent placement. Sadly, each year many children age out of the child welfare system without the opportunity to obtain permanent. This also goes for immigrant children as
Many children throughout the nation know what it’s like to grow up without a fatherly figure in their life and because of this some turn to violence. The two songs A Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash and In the Ghetto by Elvis Presley do an exceptional job of illustrating that these problems still exist and are perhaps worsening in today’s society. The first similarity I perceived between the two songs was that both include a young boy growing up without a father. In A Boy Named Sue the boy’s father leaves him and his mother. Johnny Cash explained this with the lyrics, “My daddy left home when I was three and he didn’t leave much to ma and me”.
As for him, he was literally homeless, and practically had to be the man in his family of 10, 5 sisters and 5 brothers. To both take care of your sick parents and your siblings, that was a lot of pressure on him, since he was only the 7th child out of the 10. He had to work much earlier age than my
Mayella Ewell’s father is rarely helpful to her and is usually drunk. When Mr. Bob Ewell is under the influence of alcohol he often becomes abusive to Mayella. Mayella and Bob Ewell are the only two literate person in the household. When Mayella was younger, she went to school for a few years, but she stopped attending when she became old enough to work. Because she is always busy, due to her father's laziness, Mayella has no friends that are the same age as herself.
Primarily Reyna and Jeannette’s fathers share a relatable relationship with their children. Rex constantly is running into difficulties throughout Jeannette’s memoir. Whether it be finding employment or taking care of his children he consistently falls short. For example, Jeannette had asked her father for her tenth birthday to stop drinking. In a response to his daughters wish he
Odysseus’s adventures were long, brutal and tested his weaknesses. I'm going to analyze how these weaknesses kept him from returning home. Because of these weaknesses odysseus’s son grew up without a father in his life, who knows if he even had a father figure in his life at the very least He survived many situations against all odds and was reunited with his wife and son after 20 long years. Two of his adventures were. Odysseus likes women that are not his wife, and he gets sucked into the goddess Circe’s “vortex” so to speak, his crew warned him it was a trap to keep them there but he didn't listen and they stayed there for a year eating and drinking as much as they could possibly want.
For Eddie Turner, life began with adversity and misfortune. He had been born prematurely, weighing only four pounds at birth, and the first three years of his life were spent in and out of the hospital. As a result, his physical development was abnormally slow, and he remained quite sickly. It has been said that children can be extremely cruel, and as Eddie grew, so did his low self esteem. The other children in Eddie's neighborhood would taunt and mock him with persistent criticism, and his mother's overprotectiveness and coddling, only served to contribute to his weaknesses.
She had an alcoholic father who became abusive occasionally towards her and her mother. Both her parents worked long hours to upkeep the family farm, therefore Sally was often left in the care of her next door neighbor. Her neighbor’s teenage son sexually abused Sally for years and years later when Sally told her mother about it, her mother told her to keep quiet for fear of what it may do to the Applebee reputation. Due to all these risk factors, Sally’s Adverse Childhood Experiences score was 6 (extremely high) and she had a resiliency score of 4 (extremely low). This means that Sally has a greater risk of developing health conditions later in life, such as alcoholism, chronic depression, heart disease, etc.
I also agree that both the person gettin incarcerated, and the family is affected. They miss out on each others lives. Like with Mr. Harris he was in prison for 20 years. Now all of his kids are grown, and he missed out on them growing up. This also puts the mother in a weird position to take care of the children by herself.
Unfortunately, Fish was never given proper treatment for his diagnosed condition. Like most serial killers, Fish too suffered from an inconsiderable amount of abuse and torture at his time while staying in an orphanage. It is unclear as to the reasons why Fish spent his early year in an orphanage (Casale, 2015). Day in and day out, Fish was beaten and whipped to the point of which he began to enjoy the damage. At the age of nine, Fish’s mother returned to his “rescue” and took him back home.
Mothers being incarcerated has become more prevalent in todays society. With this being said, many children are being left behind at home with no mother figure around.

In the United Sates there are many children without homes. Most of these children are stuck at foster homes until they reach the age of eighteen or adopted.
