ARGUMENT #2 Introduction Throughout the story, Hanan Shakyhs focuses on a dysfunctional family in the story “The Persian Carpet”. The child narrator claims that she has control of herself and the situation by stating that she fully knows herself; when in reality, she has forgotten her resolve and was anticipating the meeting with her mother by gladly stating that she would not give up hope on their relationship. However, the situation drastically changed when the narrator discovered the carpet that was laying on the floor which resulted the main character’s outrage. Moreover, she states that “Ilya was almost a blind man who used to go round of the houses of the quarter repairing cane chairs” (Hanan, 254). This passage is imperative to the
Her language, especially when taking age differences into consideration, infantilized Dr. Rose and reflected a lack of concern for the wellbeing of the patient. Chrissy's socio-emotional skills need immediate attention if the practice intends to retain her employment following this incident. Though, it could be argued that the problem began at the level of the receptionist, as well. Dr. Rose carefully listed her allergies on her intake form, including her recently discovered allergy to chlorhexidine. This allergy should have been noted on her patient history regardless, given that her allergy was discovered in-office the previous summer.
Kambili develops new talents that she didn’t have before. Kambili was in the car with Father Amadi and she told him she loved him. On page 276,“ That eased the dryness in my throat as we got into his car and I said, I love you.” In the beginning of the book Kambili would have not told Father Amadi she loved him because she would have been afraid of rejection but new Kambili wasn’t afraid of rejection. Mama just had told Kambili and Jaja that she had been putting poison in Papa tea for the last couple of weeks and that is what killed him. This made Kambili angry and confused toward Mama.
Mable has multiple bruises as well. The staff then wanted to shower her Grandmother, despite recommendation that they sponge bathe her because of the wound, they showered her anyway (Susan's aunt noted that the shower had feces in it). The aunt also noted feces on wipes kept in the bathroom. The family began to look for alternative placement. Susan reported that her mother was visiting during a meal time, when she overheard another resident being
“Sometimes you need a little crisis to get your adrenaline flowing and help you realize your potential.”(254) How powerful these words spoken by Rose Mary when Lori kicks her mother out of her apartment. A sense of pride is shown here which one should never lose. In Chapter 21 where Billy poses problem and seeing Jeanette’s reaction Rose Mary says “no child is born a delinquent. They only become that way if nobody loved them…”(83) Though very painful to see Jeanette's family skedaddled once again but it shows us that Jeanette and her siblings had to be supportive of each other to reach, watching each others back and thus developing a supportive network leading to where they have reached today. In chapter 62 we see that Rex makes a full recovery from TB and Lori becomes a illustrator of a comic book, Brian a detective, Maureen in high school and Jeanette in college but still they met during Christmas which shows they had developed a strong root, love and compassion for each other.
Joan Bauer reveals Jill’s perfectionism through her actions in the exposition of the story “Pancakes.”. Her short story revolves around the central idea that Jill is a perfectionist, and when things get out of hand at her job, she realizes that aid from others does not hurt. From the beginning Bauer states that Jill “...grabbed the bottle of Windex from the closet and cleaned off the gook until the mirror shined…” (327). Jill’s instantaneous action to clean depicts that she prefers everything to be to her liking. Revealing her actions of cleanliness is one of the ways Bauer shows to her audience Jill’s quirky habits.
Earlier in the movie, when Claire places her lipstick between her breasts and applies it to her lips, Bender is displeased. But, when Claire and Bender are in the closet together, she asks “Were you really disgusted about what I did with my lipstick?” and Bender replies “Truth?...No…” Bender fulfills being changed at the end of the film by accepting who Claire really is and once and for all being
Poppins’ bag, from which she pulls various items whose sizes defy the small dimensions of their holder, illustrates the contradiction of how a limited being can be made to “contain” infinite beings. Jane and Michael back up disgusted when presented with the difficult task of cleaning up the nursery.While singing a classic tune, Poppins lightens the children’s load using her supernatural telekinesis abilities evidently reducing labor, and instead replacing it with fun. The cleaning up is symbolic of Poppins beginning to clean up the entire household on a spiritual level. This all shows what many saints have claimed, mainly that suffering is the medicine that heals us from the disease of sin. However, supernatural grace aids us in taking that disgusting medicine “in a most delightful way”, which most likely explains why saints often spoke of suffering as sweet and maintained so much incomprehensible joy through their terrible situations.Later on in the film, Jane and Michael literally have to take some medicine.
“If Francie saw the good in her father, maybe I was not a complete fool for believing in mine, or trying to believe in him. It was getting harder.”(169) Jeannette’s trust and love in her father is getting very small, because of the way he abuses alcohol and lets her down. When Jeanette tells us that she believes she is a fool for believing in Rex, it shows a change in her town to be unbelieving and critical. Throughout The Glass Castle, Jeanette’s tone of Rex Walls goes from very trusting to very disbelieving. When she was young, she could not process the way her father raised and treated her, so she believed everything he said.
She trusts him to overcome any obstacle, regardless of its difficulty. Adams continues to advise her son, despite his advanced mental abilities and distinguished practicality. It is her duty as a mother to remind her son of his potential as well as help him grow into the man she expects him to be. The rhetorical strategies Adams uses to advise John establishes her credibility as a mother in addition to helping her son improve as an
When she had an serious injury in the hospital, and she totally forgot about all the things before the accident, all the things he knew was her parent told her, she was curious about what they said, she wanted to find out by herself. She didn’t just lie on the bed and do nothing, she was trying to regain her memory. Even though she didn’t know it is good or bad, she tried many methods to find out what actually happened in the accident. Another main character in the story is Libby’s mother, the thing I don’t like about her is she didn’t tell the truth to her daughter, and lied to her. Libby’s mother lied to Libby that Libby hit someone who has been seriously injured, and Libby’s mother knew that that person is Libby’s friend Kasey.
Medications are normally used to treat people that are ill, but a St. Louis mother had a much more devious reason to use it. Rachel Kinsella appeared to be taking care of her nine-year-old son, Patrick, who was born prematurely. Her son had epilepsy and hydrocephalus, but the hospital visits became more frequent and secretive. The woman took her son to St. Louis Children`s Hospital and Children`s Mercy Kansas City, getting medication from both places without telling any of the doctors, according to FOX2Now. Patrick suffered from epilepsy and hydrocephalus after a premature birth.
At first, he seemed helpless, especially when he was saved by Teddy and his family. However, soon afterward, you could tell Rikki- Tikki was courageous and willing to fight for them. Rikki was very loving to the family. Teddy’s mother was concerned for Teddy at first, but she eventually realized Rikki-Tikki could protect him. I would probably react the same way.
When it finally had stuck a landing, it had landed on Ms. Gluon, but on its way over it doused her papers, and not to forget Ms. Gulon. They water drenched her greased hair and dirty outfit, the water pellets slowly going down her face, slowing as one pellet would run into another. It finally sunk in and Ms. Gulon face went bright
Every few minutes we see in the news a child being abused or getting hurt, but there is something we are not as cautious about as parents. Parents are often not cautious about their young ones when it comes to preparing hot water with them around. Being a mother of maybe two or three is hard to deal with all at once. Even a simple task as preparing a shower can be dangerous as they stated in “The first thing you hear is a terrible scream” written by Lucy Atkins, a Britain reporter from theguardian newspaper. Atkins wrote about a mother who was preparing the bath for her two young children, two-year old Joseph and three-year old Francesca, when an incident happened in the bedroom and she went to attend it.
