Richard slowly began to miss his home and his younger brother Kenny, he realized that it is not easy to be away from home in a long period of time. For example, “It made me sad that Mama had written to Peewee to day that she loved me. She hadn’t even told me that when I was leaving.” (121). At this point in the book, I realized that Richard was very young to be in the war by himself and didn’t know how to act when he was writing to his own mother.
When he was 6, he already had poor behaviour where he stole a toy from a store but returned it and apologized after getting caught by his mother.

The narrator said, “During the first fortnight, Gregor’s parents could not bring themselves to enter his room…” He has been disconnected from his family to the point where they’re emotionally unstable and unable to treat him as he deserves with affection and comfort to help him cope with his metamorphosis. The narrator shows this disconnection before the mutation,”Gregor later earned so much money that he was in a position to cover the expenses for the entire family…” He later described the exchange not “particularly warm”. Gregor feels alienated by his parents because of the lack of affection for him providing for them.
In other words, “Foster Children Opportunity Act” This act focus on improving the health and well-being of children and families. It has always been a challenge to recruit foster care parents or adoptive parents for handicapped, ethnic, and adolescent children. I used to work for an adoptive agency for a short period. I notices that the handicapped, and adolescent got overlooked when it came to permanent placement. Even with incentive that the state offer to foster parent, the foster parents still gratefully decline.
Especially leaving their family in Cambodia, but this never stopped them from handing down our family traditions to me and my siblings. My ancestors never got the chance to come to America, they stayed in Asia. My parents were the first to come to the U.S. My dad was the first and he came because of the War in Cambodia and his years of staying in camp.
“When you teach your son you are teaching your son’s son.” Imagine not being allowed to eat your dinner because your alcoholic dad decided to stay at the bar all day, and not fitting in at school. This is how it is for Manuel (Manny) Hernandez the main character and narrator, of the novel Parrot In The Oven by Victor Martinez. I can relate to Manny’s narrative because of his struggles with fitting in and his dad getting arrested, but I can not relate to having an alcoholic dad.

In Disney, they didn't show him lose his fortune, but in the story he did so it was from happy to sad. “At once the merchant lost his whole fortune… and told his children in tears in his eyes, they must go there and work for their living.” (Pg.1).

When writing or reading a book or a movie, ever think about how much past experiences can shape a person’s behavior and attitude?

Many children throughout the nation know what it’s like to grow up without a fatherly figure in their life and because of this some turn to violence. The two songs A Boy Named Sue by Johnny Cash and In the Ghetto by Elvis Presley do an exceptional job of illustrating that these problems still exist and are perhaps worsening in today’s society. The first similarity I perceived between the two songs was that both include a young boy growing up without a father. In A Boy Named Sue the boy’s father leaves him and his mother. Johnny Cash explained this with the lyrics, “My daddy left home when I was three and he didn’t leave much to ma and me”.
He knows that if his parents were not born into poverty, his mother would have gone to college, and his father would have become a musician. Additionally, on page eleven Junior says that his parents “dreamed about being something other than poor, but they never got the chance to be anything because nobody paid attention to their dreams.” Junior believes that he is trapped in this “circle” of poverty, and his dreams will be ignored just as his parents’ dreams had been.
