Dibs’ relationship with his mother was non-existent while his attitude toward his father was one of anger and hatred. Dibs was often locked in his playroom by his parents because they did not want to deal with him. With these domestic conditions, Dibs never had an opportunity to express his emotions and display his profound intellect, let alone be praised for it and made to feel comfortable being himself. Luckily, the school stepped in and was able to bring Dr. Axline in to the equation by threatening his parents with the possibility of him being kicked out of the school that his mother worked so hard to keep him enrolled. Dr. Virginia M. Axline took on Dibs as her patient because she decided that
Throughout the story, you realize how scary it must have been for this young boy. He had no one to help him, take care of him, or even love him. However, David’s story is also one of pure human survival. “Mother can beat me all she wants, but I haven’t let her take away my will to somehow survive.” That is a sentence from page 4 and it shows David’s situation on March 3, 1973, the moment he found freedom, and was taken from his abusive mother by authorities while he was at school. Thanks to his teacher Miss Moss.
The first reason why I would relate to Ryan is that we both have a short but controllable temper because when someone says anything bad about me or my family I don 't even hesitate on saying something back unless I have some sort of respect for them. The second reason is that a couple of years ago I had a friend called jack, we were best friends who were in the same class and played the same sports. I don 't know how it happened but one day I was playing with on his train toys( we were like 6 year old) and I accidently stepped on it and broke it. Jack asked immediately assumed that i broke even though I completely denied it, afterward we were never the same again because of those train toys I broke. This is related to Ryan because in the last book JP asked Anna to the dance and immediately they got into a fight that lasted until the book ended and even in this book they still have a shaky friendship.
The mother in this is caring and always looks out for her son Sarty, like when he got hurt she would keep asking him “Does it hurt?” (Faulkner 263), so this story would have a whole different feel if she told it. The father Abner is always mad and lashes out for anything at any time, he would never think about his actions he would just do things. Lennie says “Abner. Abner. Please don’t.
Many people do not care if loyalty doesn’t return to them. They still continue being loyal. Monique, Gerald’s mother, never really cared if Jordan didn’t love her, or wasn’t loyal back when Gerald would scream at her for example. The evidence is on page 79 when Monique calls her children liars. She was being loyal to Jordan, and not even trying to listen and understand her own children about how they’ve been abused and are going through pain.
Best of the Worst Parenting is never perfect. Every parents questions whether they are raising their child correctly, and no parent ever feels like they are doing the right thing. With no clear distinction between good and bad parenting, it is usually left to personal preferences and judgements to decide which parents have adequately raised their children and which have failed. When a parent so call “fails,” often it is the children with their strong will and determination to survive that collectively raise themselves. In Jesmyn Ward’s Sing, Unburied, Sing, Leonie, one of the narrators and the mother of another narrator, Jojo, is not the most caring, hands-on mother, but is loving of her children nevertheless.
I didn’t feel anything different, I just felt angrier. One day as I sat down and talked with one of my aunts, she told me, “Some things happen for a reason.” I told myself that I wasn’t going to allow the absence of my father prevent me from getting father in life. Many always thought that I was just this angry little girl, but they never sat down and asked me why I felt so angry inside. Not having that male role model in a child’s life can lead them down the road to destruction. The strength that I have gained was to take the pain and use it as a lesson in life.
“Talk not to me, for I 'll not speak a word, Do as tho wilt, for I have dine with thee.” This is a very uncannying way to act for a responsible parent, but a perfect description of a mother not being and giving her support to her daughter and being an irresponsible parent. Juliet 's father is not any better and threatens his own daughter for not appreciating what he had done for her even without hearing her reason for not being “proud” but “thankful” (Doc C, scene5). He says to her “Or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither. Out, you green sickness, carrion! Out, you baggage!
Despite all of Mrs. Lisbon’s attempt to shelter and purify her daughters, they were still tempted to conform to societal pressures. However, it seemed that everyone with an outside perspective of the girls had a different expectation for them. They were controlled by their parents and manipulated by their peers throughout the film. The audience is never allowed to see or understand the girl’s thoughts or feelings, we watch the story unfold through the tales the neighborhood boys have gathered through their observations. The narration consumes the voices of the sisters, painting them as “indistinct erotic objects rather than subjects” (Shostak).
Right before being led back into prison, Hester barely acknowledges her baby’s needs. “The infant… pierced the air with it’s wailings and screams; she strove to hush it, mechanically, but seemed scarcely to sympathize with it’s trouble” (48). Especially in this passage, Hester’s lack of sympathy towards the baby shows just how disturbed she really is by her situation. Instead of trying vigilantly to hush her baby, like most mothers would, her actions are “mechanical”. Her attempts to calm her baby are second hand and seemingly not as important as what is happening around her.
