Rachel starts the article by discussing with her oldest daughter, about her insomnia. She tells her that she shouldn 't look at her laptop and read a book instead - her daughter rolls her eyes instead and says that she has read a lot of books. This is the first place in the story who shows us the conflict, that Rachel means are between mothers and daughters. The style of argumentation is very closed and both mother and daughter are not very open to other suggestions and kind of stubborn.
In the story it says, “ ‘I know, I know. You’ve said that a hundred times,’ she snapped. ‘What did you say?’ He asked, pushing his newspaper aside.” Maria’s conflict connects to the theme of the story because she is being ungrateful towards her father and wants to grow up too fast.
Just like most children, Strapi is a believer and that helped during the war. After her parents come here from protesting, she plays monopoly which is funny because her parents protested against the government 's monopoly and when she told her parents to play with her they said no and laughed and she go mad and told her parents (19 ) Therefore it shows that she believes everything because her teacher in school told her that the king is chosen by god and she believes it and she was fighting with her dad because she believed what her teacher say. Satrapi is a believer she believes everything people say.
In Sara Cole’s, “A Type of Love Story” Ron loved Sarah, though he thought that she was unattractive. He doesn’t realize it until the end that he loved her, and he regrets that he pushed her away. In Stacey Richter’s, “The cavemen in the hedges” the cavemen in the story are viewed as unwanted by society, until the end of the story when the cavemen are done. After which they are gone do the public regret not appreciate their existence, then realizing that what they had experiences was a once in a lifetime deal. Both of theses stories carry the from a cliche “you don’t know what you have until it’s gone,” meaning if you don’t appreciate people or certain things during the present, you’ll live in regret once you lose them.
And later he finds out that his best friend is his brother. The novel also talks about religion; “He told us one day that Islam considered drinking a terrible sin; those who drank would answer for their sin on the day of Qiyamat, Judgment Day.” (p 16) Amir’s religion teacher was explaining what punishment they would get if they drank because in their religion they can’t drink. Even though Amir was though about religion, his dad didn’t believe in god at all and though that was his teacher is teaching him is useless; “If there is God out there, then I would hope he has more important things to attend to than my drinking scotch or eating pork” (p
Although the 1920s were clearly a dire decade for many families, Enright frequently writes of those experiences with affection and a lack of prejudice. Although the poems are clearly Enright’s most confessional work, chronic misery, because it is ordinary and unexceptional, this not bring him closer to religion as he says: “I cannot recall one elevated moment in church” (Enright, Collected Poems 134). He asserts in “Sunday” yet he was sent to the church because his mother who was non catholic thought that the experience may be useful later on. His further disturbing experience of religion is found in Christmas poems.

This is when parents show young female children that you need a male figure in your life to be happy. In the article,”Fairy tales and Gender Stereotypes”, by Samara Green, she states that she read a book about,”...women who were beaten when trying to run away from abusive marriages or simply for not conceiving a baby boy.” She explains that parents shouldn’t teach the “fairy tale theme” because it isn’t true at all; you don’t need a male figure in your life to be happy, and especially when the male figure isn’t right for you or has “problems”. This is considered a “gender stereotype” because if the parents teach their children the fairy tale theme, then they are already teaching the young girl they they can’t be independent and do things for themselves so they have to rely on other people to do that certain thing for
This emotion causes people to do all sorts of things that they might regret later on as portrayed in Louisa May Alcott’s Novel, “Little Women”.

After seeing that Goodman Brown lost his faith, he does not attend church anymore. “Goodman Brown indeed wants not only to be a good man but also to become as well a new man or, if already hopefully converted, at least renew his personal experience of a divine and supernatural light.” The shadows of his mother told him to resist evil, but Brown could not. According to Wilson, “As a result of his family history, Hawthorne filled much of his work including “Young Goodman Brown,” with themes exploring the evil actions of humans and the idea of original sin” (295). Therefore, Brown returned home and confronted his wife and shouted until he got an answer.
Some parents follow the bible verse, “if you spare the rod, you spoil the child.” An author, Micheal Pearl has written a religious literature titled, “To Train Up a Child” explaining the multiple tools that parents can use including plumbing tubes, wooden spoons, belt, or a willow-branch. In September 29, 1999, an older daughter complained to the Salvation Army after the history of her family’s corporal punishment. The 17 year old now lives outside the family home. This is significant because the judge’s ruling tend to stray away of parents who use corporal punishment.
For my book report I read the book The Pigman by Paul Zindel. The book is about two sophomores named John and Lorraine who befriend a man named Angelo Pignati over the phone while they were prank calling random strangers with two friends from school. Each chapter of the book is written in the perspective of either John or Lorraine and they are telling the story on a school typewriter in their library. John started out in the first chapter and Lorraine took the second then John took the third and it went back and forth from there. The reason Mr.Pignati is dialed was very specific rather than random.
