Krebs struggled to find ways to regain his stature in society and his mother felt it was her duty to help him along the way even if he was mean to her without understanding why he was doing such.

In this stanza the parents awake to find their daughter missing and her explaining why she left. The parents are at first are devastated that their “baby’s gone” and that the girl would “treat us so thoughtlessly.” The mother continues questioning how the girl could leave her and break her heart. The significance of this is that in the refrain that follows the parents interject the narrator by saying “We never thought of ourselves; Never a thought for ourselves.” The irony is that the parents state they only thought of their child giving her what she needed; yet the parents’ first thoughts are how can our daughter betray us instead of where is my daughter? The author uses this to portray how closed-minded parents are. At the beginning the daughter left a note explaining why she was leaving, yet in the third and fourth stanza the parents read the note and still believe the girl was ungrateful.
At first it might seem as if Faye’s problem is more dire than the mother in “A Sorrowful Woman”, but it soon becomes clear that that is not the case. While Faye struggles with the fact that she cannot have children, the mother in the second piece already has a child but has become unable to handle and love him like she should. These are both problems that occur in people’s lives and are usually not spoken about openly, yet the author of “A Sorrowful Woman” really goes in depth about the mother’s deep seeded depression and want to withdraw from life while it seems like Faye’s problem is just as upsetting, yet seems to be glossed over and goes immediate to the solution to make the issue disappear, and fast forwards to their happy
Ruth is really hard to like especially when we as reader see what's really going on with Dawn and what she's going through. Ruth always turns to Barbra thinking that one of these times something will change. I really think that that's a bad idea and she shouldn't do that. If i were Ruth and i kept getting nervous calls concerning a child i would try to do so much more than give the mother another chance. Dawn almost killed herself because of her mother not being there for her and loving her like normal parents would do for their children.
“The heart gets confused when it is constantly told I love you by the same person who destroys it”-R.h Sin. This portrays the moral idea of billions of abused individuals , as well as the characters in Purple Hibiscus. As a human being, we are always longing for companionship. But sometimes, one is too blinded by love in that relationship to notice that love is tainted; by emotional and physical torment. This reigns true for Kambili, the protagonist , and Purple Hibiscus by Chimamanda N. Adichie.
At first, the child’s mother was in complete denial about the child’s disability, even withdrawing him from public school as a way to avoid administrative pressure to sign an Individualized Education Plan (IEP). Recently, the child’s mother has seemed “sad” about her child’s situation and has taken the small step of acknowledging that her child is lagging behind his peers. Unfortunately, the parent still denies a disability and places blame of his delay on medical reasons, such as allergies. When parents have attached a negative meaning to a disability diagnosis, either personally or through interaction with family and friends, they will react negatively to a disability diagnosis for their child (Case,
When dealing with the burden of hiding the truth from Torvald, Nora begins to contemplate suicide.

This is about her children and her taking her own life, which is incredibly outlandish. The nurse speaks to Nora saying how they need their mother at such a young age and would be damaged by her absence. Nora again is choosing to run and hide from her problems only this time it is affecting her family.
Unhappy couples should not be forced to stay together for the sake of their children. Some families are better off not living under the same roof, some people only have children to save their marriage and it does not work. An unhappy household leaves emotional baggage on the children.
