To Roger Mrs. Bates was being a mother-like figure to him, she feeds Roger, she doesn't call law enforcement to take him away to jail, and she then gives him money to buy the blue suede shoes he wanted. I believe that Mrs. Luella was trying to be a mother-like figure to Roger all along and not treat him like some low life criminal. It's clear that Mrs. Luella had a big impact on Roger when she first catches him trying to steal her purse. In the middle of the store even Roger
In one circumstance, we may feel the need to give to those who are poor to keep them from getting in our personal space; and in other circumstances we feel that we give to others out of the kindness of our heart. I completely agree with Ascher and her views on compassion, because I have been in similar situation where I have questioned why people give money, and whether they give with a whole heart or out of necessity. Furthermore, this essay can teach us plenty of lessons that can be utilized throughout our lives so we can teach others and make them aware of the need to be more
Although memories are important, they are also a source of pain. Lowry shows that we learn from our past mistakes and that pain is the cost of wisdom. It is also shown that without memory, there is no pain. If one does not remember physical pain, they might as well not have experienced it, and they cannot feel regret if they can’t remember the events that caused the feeling. The elimination of the memory of pain from the community allowed the residents to forget the pain they had felt throughout their lives, but as a result causing them to be more conforming.
Essentially, pity for someone makes it difficult for them to learn and improve. To begin, many times, one can see parents giving treats or rewards to their children when said children are acting up. Not to “reward” them per se, but to distract the child enough to stop their incessant whining and screaming. A similar scenario occurs in The Miracle Worker. Helen is given a “reward” when she behaves negatively, to stop the wrongdoing for a short period of time.
On page 31 Mrs. Jones says to Roger “You ought to be my son”. She changed his life by giving him discipline. She tried to treat him with respect because she wanted him to stop pocketbook stealing and wanted him to behave himself. She wanted him to be a better person because she did horrible things when she was his age. She wanted him to behave because she saw him with a dirty face and some worn out shoes she was trying to tell him to behave, so he could get a good education.
Second, Brady uses catalogue when she is ranting about what the wife is responsible for, “I want a wife who will plan the menus, do the necessary grocery shopping, prepare the meals, serve them pleasantly, and then do the cleaning up while I do my studying.” Brady shows in these sentences what a wife must do just for the meals. This is suppose to make the reader sympathize with the wife. Finally, she uses pathos, “I want a wife who will not bother me with rambling complaints about a wife’s duties. But I want a wife who will listen to me when I feel the need to explain a rather difficult point I have come across in my course of studies.” When reading these sentences it appeals to the female readers anger or irritation because a wife has to listen to the man’s ranting while she must be quiet as a mouse, while the husband can be a dog loud and
I enjoy being there for my grandmother and cleaning her house or doing some picking up here and there as long as I have her company there while I do the work, I don't mind one bit. It's important to me to have strong family values because I feel it makes me a better person and helps me to never forget where I came from. I remember in middle school I did community service and the feeling you get from knowing that you’re being a small part of helping someone in need is a satisfying feeling. I went to Feed the Children to package boxes with everyday necessities. I also have spent some time at the food bank helping packing food for those in need.

On the other hand, the woman should stay at home so she can watch the kids and have time for cleaning and cooking. The man was always supposed to be in charge and the woman just go along with it. These gender roles used to be pretty strict and there was no other way to life, but we have come along way. Today, we even have a woman running for president. Overall, I think a person’s gender shouldn’t affect they go about their day to day life, but unfortunately, even though it has gotten better, people are still labeled and have expectations because of it.
Atticus wants his children to understand that some people cannot control their actions even though the reason is not apanent. He tries to teach them that treating people with compassion will result in the greater good. If the place where the bullying takes place does not have high
Even though the process of getting that meal is disgraceful, she choose to hide this ugly truth for her children and hold up the shameful feeling in her heart. Angela’s begging behavior may looks like she is forced by poverty, nonetheless, that’s not the only reason. With the heart of a mother, Angela loves her kids. So she doesn’t mind to sacrifices her dignity when the time she knows the family need
