Abuse, chaos and bitter love are some things that are clearly seen in the film The Glass Castle (2017), through the Walls family. In the book Jeannette Walls, sheds light on how her father was an alcoholic and how he “brought” the family down with him. Jeannette is the closest one to her father and truly connects to him, and goes along with everything he does. Rex’s alcoholism is a symbol for endurance and hardship and can be seen sporadically throughout the movie and book. In Destin Cretons film version we see the hardships and pains of a troubled growing family.
In this world, there’s learning things the hard way and the easy way; in Jeannette Wall’s world, there’s only learning things the hard way. The Glass Castle is an adventurous story that reveals the painfully miserable story of Jeannette Walls. A selfish mother, a careless father, and terrible social encounters- these are some of the elements of a harsh reality Rex and Rose Mary Walls failed to shield their children from. Growing up poor was already difficult, but growing up with a selfish parent, specifically an unfeeling mom, made life hell for the Walls children. The family barely had one source of income from Rex Walls, and instead of helping out with the family’s finance issues, Rose Mary spent her days at home painting.
This moment of loss helps the reader understand how dire and disappointing Jeanette’s circumstances are. From this understanding, Walls fully develops the idea that her perseverance stemmed from continual
Hell, humiliation, and hardships is what Dave Pelzer had to deal with for eight years of his atrocious childhood. A Child Called “It” is a memoir that apprises Dave Pelzer’s childhood life, and how it transformed from a mirthful summer to a pure stone-cold winter. Pelzer’s psychotic and alcoholic mother both physically and mentally abused and neglected him from ages four to twelve. Pelzer’s mother referred to him as “the boy” and even dehumanizing him by calling him “a nobody, an it”. Pelzer was treated like a slave, having to do all the chores around the house on time and ordinarily had to play his mother’s tortuous games; these games usually caused Pelzer severe injuries.
Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger. Days pass and years pass, Johnny was horribly scared of violence.

In the memoir, The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, the Walls family is considered homeless and they are constantly moving from place to place. They constantly find themselves either with a somewhat decent amount of money or at times, no money at all. Jeannette, being one of four children always follows along with and listens to her parents and eventually notices that their family does things very differently than most other families. As Jeannette explains her childhood and how she is being raised by her parents, it is clear to see how different Rex and Rosemary’s parenting style is compared to the parenting style of other parents. Since their parenting style is so different, it seems that it affects their children in a negative way throughout their childhood, but in the end it makes Jeannette become a better and more successful person.
For my research paper, I want to explore how people born into poverty are resilient and hardworking individuals, opposed to lazy and hopeless individuals. This issue was seen in Jeannette Walls’ memoir The Glass Castle throughout her childhood until she went to New York. During her childhood, Jeanette and her siblings were bullied. They were bullied because their clothes looked ratty, they looked greasy, and often times eat out of the garbage because their parents didn’t have enough money to buy food.
Jeannette freed her siblings and herself from being held back from the real world. Apparently, Jeannette needed a huge break from her parents to succeed in her future. Second, Jeannette lived in poverty for all of her childhood due to inapt parenting skills. When Rosemary went away, she left her children with "no food, no coal, [and] no plumbing" (273). Jeannette figured out a budget plan and provided for her siblings.

Cassondra Britton Ishmael essay For as long as I can remember I have always wanted to be a lawyer. My mother started working with the mentally ill before I was born, and my father has always worked in a prison; therefore I was exposed to the underbelly of society before I could talk. Like Gandhi’s mother, my parents taught me to understand that the people they work with are human beings that deserve dignity and help. They taught me that the “criminals” and “low lifes” they work with are ill and a lot of them are victims of their environment. Thus, it came as no surprise when my pastor, during conformation, told my mother that at age 11 I had a strong sense for social justice.
