'Your mother hasn't given you powers to use them so frivolously, Persephone. You are meant to use them with a purpose, to do something with them.' Leuce explained, lifting Persephone from the puddle and straightening out her dress, more drops of muddy water falling on to her dress. 'Mother said, 'Listen carefully Persephone, I am giving you these gifts because you are a Goddess, and Goddesses like us have special skills.' the girl recited the words, in a perfect imitation of her mother.
Kate Chopin is well-known for writing about women and their experiences concerning their freedom. In essence, the women were hoping for the chains of society, and their societies standards to change. Particularly in the story “Ripe Figs,” she gives us a different view of freedom. To start off, Babette has a limited privilege to make choices for herself in the story. Consequently, when Mamaine-Nainaine informs Babette “when the figs were ripe Babette might go to visit her cousins down on the Bayou-Lafourche” (25), this was Mamaine-Nainaine limiting Babette’s freedom until she is mature enough.
The grocery store was not that busy, informed in the story that “The stores pretty empty, it being Thursday afternoon, so there was nothing much to do except lean on the register and wait for the girls to show up again” (Updike 475). Sammy did not miss the opportunity to keep his eyes on the girls, especially since he was instantly interested in Queenie who was introduced to us as the leader among the girls. Each of the girls was different and had bathing suits on. Sammy was very descriptive about each bathing suit; he included many details. Queenie “had on a kind of dirty-pink beige maybe, I don’t know bathing suit with a little nubble all over it and, what got me, the straps were down, they were off the shoulders looped loose around the cool tops of her arms, and I guess"(Updike 473).

Across the Lifespan: School-aged Paper The location of the observation took place at Chuck E. Cheeses, located in Gaithersburg, Maryland. The 5-year-old girl was naturally observed in the evening for 30 minutes. Her occupation being observed was leisure, which is defined as, “Non-obligatory activity that is intrinsically motivated and engaged in during discretionary time, that is, time is not committed to obligatory occupations such as work, self-care, or sleep” (Parham & Fazio, 2008, p. 252). The category under occupation that represents leisure would be leisure exploration, since the girl was Exploring and learning what may or may not interest her. Physical and Social Environment The physical environment the little girl was in consisted of multiple play areas that included arcade games and machines, obstacle course play areas, a stage for Chuck E. Cheese animatronics and more.
She was raised in Phoenix, Arizona where the weather was nice year round, as far as she remembers. At a very young age she was taught manners and how to respect her elders. She and her older sister attended church gatherings with their grandmother. It was quite boring for young girls that had no place in speaking unless spoken too. For small children and
As I keep reading this story my idea of what is actually going on constantly changes. Both of these stories although different they explain the same theme, and that’s dealing with an event early on in life that shapes who they become. In “Boys and Girls” it’s the girl coming to realize what she thinks of her self doesn’t match what people expect from her. In “The thing in the forest” it’s the two girls coming to a conclusion that the thing they thing they think they saw made a big impact on who they became. These are two completely different routes but in the end they surve the same purpose.

It was really difficult because her English was really poor and she did not speak Arabic. She was able to tell us bits and pieces of her story throughout our times together. She had grown up in Nepal in a village constantly terrified because when she was about 10 years only she was playing with friends when a woman appeared and told her and her friends to follow her. Surita described the women as unbelievably beautiful and belying in a way that you just wanted to be near her. The girls followed the women to a river way the women suddenly grabbed Surita and started to drag her to the water, but she broke free and ran.
She rushes over to greet me with a hug, I have to bend down to embrace her as she stands shorter than my shoulders. She wears a light grey polo shirt with navy blue pants and velvet slippers. I 'm pretty sure she just wears the same clothes (in different colours) almost every day, but my Grandmother laughs at the suggestion, yet does not refute it. We take a seat at the living room table, now flooded with the afternoon sun shining through the bay windows. It catches my Grandmothers deep blue eyes and makes them shine from her cheeks.
