Their youngsters, who feel adored; whatever is left of us, who are saved disagreeable expe- riences with adolescents raised without affection or warmth; and mothers most impor- tantly.

She simultaneously loves and resents her children because, while she is their mother, she feels that they have taken away her freedom and self-purpose. As Edna journeys in her awakening, she strives to find meaning for herself as Edna, not her children's mother. To prove she is more than just a mother, she distances herself from normal motherly responsibilities. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children. If it was not a mother's place to look after children, whose on earth was it?”(Chopin, 15) Edna's neglect of her children stems from others expectations for her to submit to and look after her
The movie “My Sister’s Keeper” has a potential story with a beautiful beginning. However, through flashbacks we catch glimpses of the moments in her life that helped Kate feel like a normal kid. Her family and her boyfriend Taylor was a big part of those memories. Those memories are the moments of her childhood, that most parents would hope their kids gets to experience in life. I think the director succeeds in showing us not to take life for granted because, it can be taken away without notice.
Similar to Revolutionary Road, wife and husband’s different notions of self-fulfilment and dealing with a disappointing daily life contribute to severe problems in their relationship. American Beauty, however, does not emphasise the inability to compensate for a failed marriage between two partners who have forgotten how to love each other, but rather highlights the relationship between Carolyn, materialistic values and her blind urge to ensure an social power. Lester himself states, “Our marriage is just for show. A commercial for how normal we are; when we are anything but” (American Beauty). Carolyn does her best to keep up appreances according to her idol, Buddy ‘local-real-estate’ King’s principle “In order to be successful, one must project an image of success.

(83) These words were uttered by Scout in blind defense of her father. As her cousin begins to slander Atticus, Scout loses her temper and, despite not understanding the boy, defends Atticus without considering any facts.

His son’s determination, however, comes from passion to please his dad.
The unique bond that exists between a mother and her child is practically unbreakable. A mother’s love is unselfish, unconditional, and knows no boundaries. Without the love and support of a mother, a child is like a ship lost at sea. The only way one can possibly repay their mother for all they have done is by giving her the same relentless love and affection that she have always given. In “The Lanyard”, Billy Collins implements juxtaposition, humorous comparisons, and metaphors to refrain the poet's message of love from lapsing into a cliché about parental love and convey the theme of a mother’s love.
Lena and Linda: So Different and Yet the Same “Death of a Salesman” and “A Raisin in the Sun”, two Tony Award winning plays; both are revered as classics. Both have been revived, reprinted, and filmed multiple times. however, that is not all they have in common; both plays share strikingly similar matriarchs.

The Brave and Courageous Mama Having courage is not easy, but having courage can help you throughout life. After the novel, Roll of Thunder, Hear my Cry by Mildred D. Taylor, I have noticed that many character have shown courage. The character I believe showed the most courage was Mama. I consider this because Mama showed many actions of courage such as risking her job to stand up for what was right, raising the kids without Papa, and when Mama had to stop the fire while protecting her children.

The photograph depicts a family suffering from extreme poverty, but it also demonstrates the determination of a mother to do her best to care for her children and to endure through difficult times. The mother and her children are severely impoverished.
