Which to this day I see myself as an “odd kid.” Being outcasted gave me a new friend group of other outcasted kids, kids who I fit in with very well. But learning how to get the courage to speak to new kids helped with my speech skills as well as my anxiety about speaking. I thank my mother for pushing me into awkward situations because it has strengthened my social skills as well as given me life long
But once they move to Welch, we see a more neglectful and destructive parenting style. Both Rex and Rosemary start to ignore the kids, asking them to fend for themselves and each other. This leads to both Lori and Jeannette having to help and almost manage the other two children. But in the long run, this may not have been a bad idea because it strengthened both of their independence. More and more we see this, as the Walls parents put the children in bad situations, they struggle, but eventually fix the situation and learn valuable lessons.
The phrase “mother knows best” refers to maternal instinct and wisdom. It is often used to describe how mothers are the most knowledgeable when it comes to their children’s needs. This cliche is frequently used by mothers who try to guide their children on the path towards success, especially when the child protests. Tita’s mother, Mama Elena, embraces this expression fully, and always pushes Tita towards what she believes is the road to achievement. Mama Elena is perhaps one of the best portrayals of “tough love” in a character in literature.
This broken promise is also one of the stones that later drives her mad. So a reader may find it interesting that even in her state of madness she is able to communicate her heartbreak and touch down on topics most would never consider. While Ophelia does show some good examples of feminism, Queen Gertrude shows even more compelling evidence of feminist lens in the form of Gertrude holding the perfect image of a proper women. The reader can see the feminist lens in Gertrude through her love for her son and when she is always being overlooked by the men in her life. An excellent example of one such instance is when Hamlet confronts Gertrude in her closet.
Today, people still use offensive terms such as “f*ggot” in their everyday lives, but what exactly is wrong with being gay? Does it make you weak? Well, it, in fact, does not, but toxic masculinity makes it seem like it’s okay to say such words, when really it is negatively affecting other people. Similarly, “b*tch” is used when a woman might stand up for herself, which betrays the typical female gender role.
The Maturation of Jimmy Swanson in “The Nest” An important part of growing up is when the child can stand up for themselves and be able to defend their own opinions.

LGB adolescents become part of a minority group based on the societal view that heterosexuality is favored, leading them to experience heterosexism. Saltzburg found (2007) LGB youth struggle from the society narrative of heterosexism resulting in “fears of disappointing their parents and facing emotional rejection” (p. 58). Narrative therapy is effective with LGB youth and parents by using specific questions and conversations to challenge and discuss heterosexism and homophobia with the parents. One method is to externalize homophobia and heterosexism using conversations such as: 1) identifying and acknowledging in what ways homophobia and heterosexism have come to be constitutive of their life; 2) recognizing how homophobic and heterosexist
For a long time, people have thought that rigid guidelines will be beneficial for a child because it helps shape them into their best self.

The parental standards in Romeo and Juliet are overly stressful for Romeo and Juliet to handle, causing the teenagers to suffer in various ways that lead up to their death at the end of the play.
Steph is a guy that you truly cannot hate for who he is. He’s a family man. As we’ve all probably seen before, his young daughter, Riley, did a post game interview with him. The cuteness of his daughter not only gave Steph a popularity boost, but the whole Curry clan. Last but not least, he’s a very humble guy.
I think Rosskam put in Logan to show the cisgender audience that it is difficult to get to that place where you are certain of who you are even if it isn’t what people expect from you. I also think Logan’s situation is a bit different because he has a supporting partner and two kids that live with him and one of them is autistic. I feel like Logan has to be a bit more feminine because he has this motherly bond with his children and he wants them to know that they will always have a mother no matter who he identifies as. To a transgender audience it will be something they can understand because they know how hard it is to
