It was normal for a man to have the most power over a household. However, Walter struggles to the role his family plays in his daily life. Because of Walter’s business failure, he was able to develop and find the harmonic balance between money and family. Walter was able to face Karl Lidner when given the choice to sell his family’s dream home in return for one thousand five hundred dollars. He confronts his greed and desire to become a wealthy businessman and realizes that he lost his only supporters throughout his journey.
Walter wants to be free from the family’s low income lifestyle, and becoming rich is Walter’s extrinsic motivation to live. Mama said to Walter, “Son-how come you talk so much ‘bout money?” Walter responded with immense passion, “Because it is life, Mama!” Walter looks at life, and like a bride sees through her wedding vail, Walter sees through money lenses. He sees his father’s money as a possibility in a world that revolves around a minimal supply of money. He feels that if he cannot achieve greatness and get his family out of the slums of Chicago, then he has failed at everything. It not only concerns his family that he sees his human worth out of money, but it worries them because they are not able to trust him to be responsible and just when making decisions.
The wife never refuses to prepare his meals, even if he is refusing to eat due to annoyance. *When he has refused 2 meals, prepare his favorite, with tempting treats* 17. The wife has no orders to give to her husband, but she receives orders from him 18. *The wife must always respect the husband*.

As opposed to buying food, upgrading their house, or saving the money for later, it goes to waste at the bar and gives Angela no other option but to resort to asking charity organizations for assistance. Frank’s mom is another contributing factor in the waste of money: “There may be a lack of tea or bread in the house but Mam and Dad always manage to get the fags, the Wild Woodbines” (McCourt 138). If his parents were thinking in the best interest of their children, then they would realize that giving up some of their luxuries would be necessary. It is not fair to ask their kids to starve, and claim that they have
They believe gender is created by both biological and social factors. Refiners resist normative gender for their children by realizing that some of these gendered expectations are problematic, and take certain measures to resist them (2012: 112). Yet because these gendered expectations are weighed so heavily in our society, refiners also find themselves reproducing them. An example Kane presents of a refiner is Ben, who had one of his sons walk out in a Cinderella dress and another walk out holding the hand of his friend who was also a boy, in front of a construction worker who was renovating their kitchen. As a refiner, Ben does not think boys should have princess dresses, but because it was his daughters, he was ok with his son wearing the dress.
The double standard of endless sacrifices paired with trying to increase influence around the home is no recipe for success. For now, it seems that no matter where men direct their focus, they will come up short, every single time. If they direct too much attention at home, their quality of work is subpar. If they direct too much attention to work, they hurt the most meaningful people in their life. Dorment brings this idea full circle by mentioning how "men have oppressed their wives, sisters, and daughters for pretty much all of recorded history, and now women are supposed to trust us to share everything 50-50?"
The song handles the important topic it addresses, based on the topic of the song “Am I Wrong”. It tells the public how they shouldn’t let people tell them that they are wrong on the choices they make and they should learn to live with their own decisions. For instance, my ex flat mate was born into a wealthy home, where both parents never cared about their kid’s happiness, all they wanted and were interested in was their children getting married into a wealthy home. My ex flat mate Nancy, finally got into a relationship with a rich boy, who hits her every day and whenever she tries to relate the situation to her mom she always pushes her away. But Nancy made a decision to leave the relationship despite her parent’s pressure.
