In the play, Lady Capulet asks the Nurse, “Nurse, where’s my daughter? Call her forth to me.” (1.3.1). This quote proves that Lady Capulet does not keep track of her own daughter. While the nurse acts like the mom that Lady Capulet should be to Juliet, Lady Capulet is off doing other things. It is also clearly given to the readers that the nurse has been taking care of Juliet since her birth.
The nurse was the one who raised juliet hence, Juliet’s mother still treats Juliet like a child and did not get to spend more time with Juliet as much as the nurse did. Juliet probably finds the nurse more mother-like than her own mother. Lady capulet wants Juliet to

Throughout Shakespeare 's Romeo and Juliet, the definitions of weak and strong connect in many different ways. In a revolutionary tale, among the weak female characters, there are a few women who define what it means to be strong in an era where men ruled. Lady Montague (Romeo’s mother) is the epitome of a weak character. Throughout the whole play, she is rarely mentioned, despite the fact that
And how Nea deals with this events. This story is written with the immature and unreliable 12-year old perspective. These two sisters have grown together all through their life’s, creating a strong bound, and the fact that her family and a “old guy” is taking away her sister is something she can’t stand. In the end Nea believes that she is saving Sourdi from Mr.Chhay and her mother. However what Nea does not understand in all her youth and idealism , is that sourdi does not want to be saved: She willfully accepts her fate and her marriage to Mr.Chhay because she finds financial stability and a secure future.
CAPULET But saying o 'er what I have said before. My child is yet a stranger in the world. She hath not seen the change of fourteen years. Let two more summers wither in their pride Ere we may think her ripe to be a bride. PARIS Younger than she are happy mothers made.” Paris is eager to marry Juliet, but Capulet the father does not think that Juliet is old enough and i shappy to agree to marry them if Juliet agrees to.
Such as, parents not making an effort to be parents and pick and prod until learning what is wrong with Romeo.

Similar to a parasite, Juliet, the daughter of Capulet and Lady Capulet in the play Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare, is a character who is very dependent and doesn’t formulate her own opinion. So, throughout the course of the story, Juliet develops her own thoughts and continuously becomes more independent according to the experiences she faces, consisting of disobeying her parents, falling deeply in love with Romeo and finally accomplishing her liberty. William Shakespeare has created Juliet by interpreting her as a character who has transferred from a dependent person to an independent person. For instance, while Juliet was asking the nurse about the fight between Romeo and Tybalt, Juliet says, “What storm is this that blows so contrary? / Is Romeo slaughtered and is Tybalt dead?”(3.2.70-71).
It’s a time for new beginnings filled with new friendships and connections. Most parents immediately feel happy and attached to their child, but not Romeo and Juliet’s parents. Juliet never has a heart to heart talk with her parents. They only talk when necessary. On the other hand the Nurse is always the one having those cherishing talks with Juliet.
The star-crossed lovers of The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, by William Shakespeare, and West Side Story are equally affected by their friends and others close to them, but are influenced in evidently dissimilar ways. The influences exerted by characters are important to analyze so that their variations can be fully noted and understood. Despite fulfilling twin roles, the Nurse and Anita provide very distinct impacts to Juliet and Maria as the courses of their respective stories unfold. Having lost her own child at a young age, Nurse sees Juliet Capulet as her daughter. Respectively, Nurse is more of a mother to Juliet than her own Lady Capulet.
Such a statement to the person that has allowed her to stay long after Juliet finished breastfeeding is one that could cost her the loss of a second child. The Nurse continuously claims that Juliet is like her daughter, and defying Lord Capulet could lead her too far worse consequences than what Juliet gets for defying him. The fact that the Nurse is the one to call out Capulet for his misbehavior clearly shows
