She believes that “house is not the same for a woman. She is not someone who walks into the house, to make use of it, and will walk out again. She is the house; there is no separation possible” (2), which Munroe upbraids about in her story using the humor. When describing Mrs. Malley, the narrator assumes “she would have no children, the stress of her life, whatever it was, she did not allow it” (3). Some women in the 1960s and maybe the narrator also thought children as disrupters of life because they have to use their time for children, not

She was repeatedly attacked against and viewed as less than a human. This quote from the text, “Seen the new kid yet?”(51), gives a correlation of dependent children seeking others for help, to how women were given no power by the society and needed to be dependent on others to fulfill their lives. In earlier days children were heavily disciplined and had no real connection with their parents, that correlates to Curley’s wife’s resemblance to being lonely with no stable connection. They cannot obtain the same, or any, freedom as a man. Consequently, this leads into the next quote, “ Why’n’t you tell her to stay the hell home where she belongs?”(62), that resembles the recurring childlike personna that is following Curley’s wife’s character.

Her parents are so consumed with their problems they neglect Lynda and her brother. Instead of being able to focus on the children, the parents are focused on finding a solution for their financial problems or emotional problems.

I also face pressure by my parents and the community to conform and become a housewife which requires learning how to cook properly and be submissive.

Repetition of Failure Offspring and their guardians possess unique and influential relationships that can either benefit or harm the individual. In the novel Frankenstein, written by Mary Shelley, there are instances in which poor parenting causes for dilemmas to arise deeper into the novel. As a parent, it is expected to meet the responsibility of properly raising the child, and preparing it to accustom to society.
