You don’t see your sister using that junk” (Oates 1) and her father always away for the work and never bothered to interact with Connie. Likewise, Connie shares very similar traits to Innocents in folktales. The archetypical Innocent is always a young adolescent, usually a girl, or animal, who is seen as pure and untouched.

Therefore, combining the autism and the lack of confidence she expressed after the rescue, we can assume after the fails of the previous development, Genie was apparently not an initiative child.

In The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, Rose Mary is the mother of the Walls children who often does not act as a true adult. Rose Mary’s attitudes and behaviours are childlike, and therefore her children must take on responsibility for the lack her own.

I can 't walk. I can 't feed myself or take myself to the bathroom. Big bummer” (3). The significance of this quote is that she understands that she can 't do any of this stuff. Melody is very smart just no one knows and people judge her for how she looks.
Through this hellish landscape, Kogawa introduces the results of the past through Naomi Nakane, whose present life is unsatisfying and stagnant. She is stuck in her own past, never truly different from her childhood. As a teacher, she finds herself bent to the will of children, for she is “no disciplinarian”(9). During her flashbacks, reveal the same silent disposition and passiveness to “the impertinence of children”(8), such as Ralph’s pushing and questioning about the lose chicks, to which Naomi (as a young child) “[does] not answer”(72). Even at thirty-six years of
