First, I asked them about the differentiating stage of their relationship. Susan described feeling lonely and inadequate after the winter break because she felt that Whitney was distancing herself from Susan. This feeling was supported by Whitney reporting that she was unsure about being in the relationship, because she did not want to identify herself being a same-sex relationship. Due to the fact that each of them were doing their own separate activities outside of their team practice, quality and quantity of their conversations were starting to degrade.

Lady Capulet did not even try to comfort Juliet or listen to her reasoning behind not wanting to marry Paris, rather she does not care and moves on. Juliet then had to confront the Nurse for some motherly advice pleading, “Comfort me; counsel me” (3.5. 220). The Nurse is more of a motherly figure to Juliet all of her life than Lady Capulet is. Lady Capulet was indifferent throughout the play because she never was a real mother to Juliet. If Lady Capulet is a better mother to Juliet and was concerned of her decisions she would support Juliet on things she does not want to do.

In this book, Katniss and Prim lose their father, which has a great impact on their mother. Katniss' mother's response is very similar to Geneva's. "She didn't do anything but sit propped up in a chair, or more often huddled under the blankets on her bed, eyes fixed on some point in the distance... no amount of pleading seemed from Prim seemed to affect her" (Collins 26). Katniss' mother is not accepting the death of her husband by blocking out everyone, which is almost exactly the same response as Geneva to her situation.

In our nightly conversations, I would watch as her eyes filled with pride when I would tell her about my schoolwork. She believed in me, but she reserved none of that optimism for herself.
