This is seen by the children as they do not value their parents and have found replacement in the technology placed in their nursery. The parents feel useless as they do not due much which leads to the fathers drinking and smoking addiction. This can be seen by the quote “that 's just it. I feel like I don 't belong here.
A balance between a enriching intellectual environment and comfortable living conditions is what all families, especially parents want. This is a constant struggle in the Glass Castle because of the Walls poor living condition, but eagerness to explore and adventure the world. Rex and Rosemary Walls, parents of Lori, Jeannette, Brian, and Maureen, obviously take an exploratory and learning environment over a comforting living space. Although living in rough conditions, which leads to bullying, poverty, I believe that it was more important that the Walls created circumstances for most of the children to explore and enjoy learning. Jeannette Walls, the author and the narrator throughout the book, tells a story about her life from when she was

After being rejected by his family due to his metamorphosis, he has no reason to live and his humanity started to disintegrate. Both Gregor's work and his family were the causes of his dehumanization after his metamorphosis. In my opinion, the leading factor was his parents and how they dealt with his metamorphosis.

Although they did care greatly for Chris and his sister, they had not shown that in enough ways to prevent the tragedy of Chris’ fate. The fact that his parent were there for his physically, but not mentally had a great effect on him. According to the movie and the book “Into The Wild”, I perceived that the major catalyst for Chris to leave was his parents. Even when he was younger, he had to protect his younger sister from their parents when they would produce fierce fights that led to some physicalities. So in turn, Chris ended up being fed up and couldn’t handle the stress, which concluded with him to leave.

Lynda describes this in her essay by writing, "We were children with the sound turned off."
