Lilburn) Anse claims sweat will kill him, and therefore refuses to work. Instead, he convinces others to work for him, mainly his children. That is the only reason he had children. He also states that “It 's a hard country on man... Nowhere in this sinful world can a honest, hard-working man profit.
The husband is hurt from his wife’s death being so sudden. He hurts for the fact that she will no longer there with him or around him. The narrator tells us how he is lonely and how he is broken he wants to move on and go to where Lenore is.“My sad fancy into smiling.”(45) The
In one part of the text it states, “And that was the last we saw of Homer Barron. And of Miss Emily for some time”(Faulkner 455). This is shortly after they were to have gotten married and all the townspeople just assumed he had left her and she was mourning, no one even suspected that she might have killed him. Her staying locked up in her house after his disappearance made the townspeople believe she was extremely upset that he was no longer around, helping keep her off the suspect list of his murder. Another reason they thought he might’ve just left is because she was pressuring him for a serious relationship and he didn’t want one.
She is married to Johnny Foote, Hilly’s ex, who Hilly is obviously still not over with. Celia is new in town and she desperately tries to break free from her outcast status among other white women, but gets repeatedly rejected thanks to Hilly’s influence. Celia grew up in extreme poverty and has no experience in cooking or housekeeping. Moreover, she has been tormented by series of miscarriages. Her inability to have children and lack of domestic skills lead Celia to believe that she is not a good enough wife for Johnny, and he will eventually abandon her.
Sam is hoping she doesn’t need an abortion because she couldn’t afford it, and then her parents would be angry. Halsey’s voice delivering these lines, was slow and deliberate. She sounded heartbroken as she told this first story. She didn’t want to have to watch her friend suffer. Halsey continues her poem with the her own story of sexual assault.
By not having a good support system, Donald is very vulnerable to predators due to him just wanting someone to acknowledge his well being. Donald is just a lonely, little boy that wants to be accepted and supported by someone. I also believe that Father Flynn is guilty due to his own behavior and mannerisms. Father Flynn works very hard to defend himself when he was getting accused. Sister Aloysius and Sister James called Father Flynn for a meeting about the winter pageant, but they have an underlying cause.
As critic Peter Freese wrote regarding the parents in Less Than Zero, “parents, divorced or separated, occupied by their passing affairs, intent on their success in the Hollywood industry, and obsessed by their futile attempts at preserving eternal youth, have no time for and no interest in their children, have never provided them with a functioning value system, and try to absolve themselves of their responsibility by generously writing cheques, (Freese).” This couldn’t be closer to the truth about Kim’s mother. Consumed by her own success and wellbeing she neglects her own daughter. Showing her true character is one filled with immorality and emptiness. She can’t be bothered to spend time with her
Also because she is with American children and she is Mexican they want to automatically control her and they are not polite with her and the reason why she is arrested is because she was forced and obliged to take the children with her to the wedding because there were not other solutions and the parents due to the shooting were not in state and concerned of what happened at home and she just wanted to be helpful and to do not let them to anybody. When she is deported to Mexico the couple do nothing to try to help her to stay in the United-States and it is selfish because she worked for them since a very long period of time, she was really good with their children, their children really liked her and it is in a way their faults if she did that and if she is in this
Mammachi endures all of these ill-treatments until her educated son rescues her, but the result was her son starts to dominate her life after that. Chacko takes the control of her factory and pushes her aside without concerning her dedication to establish and maintain the factory before his arrival. As well as the ill-treatments from her husband, the negligence of her son also is accepted by Mammachi, since that is the way that the patriarchal society functions. Roy portrays the character of Ammu as a rebel against both patriarchy and her marginalization as a woman. She never enjoys the privileges that Chacko enjoys because of her being a woman and during this period women were marginalized merely for the reason of their being women.
Authoritarian parents are cold and rejecting towards their child and make their child follow certain principle with force and not reasons. Becoming over-protective they tend to take all decisions for their child. They often over-burden the child with high expectations thereby leading to the formation of negative aspect of the child’s personality (like depression, indecisiveness, anti socialism, etc.) when they grow. Permissive parents are warm and agreeable who hardly restricts the freedom of their children.This type of parenting usually leads to over-demanding, disobedient and indisciplined children.
