Pushing other for success can be harming to them, although you may not see it because you are blinded on only helping them rather from just enjoying their presents instead of thinking and caring of what other people say. For example, A short story by James Hurst “ Scarlet Ibis”. Hurst tells a tragic story of doodle a disabled child and his brother. Doodle’s life is like a series of love and complication. Doodle doesn't give up because he is shown desirement although he goes through occasional cruelty by his brother.
These actions have consequences, just like John said, “If you exploit people they become less likely to cooperate with you voluntarily” (PsychologyToday). We can relate this to “A Good Man is Hard to Find” because that is exactly what the grandmother did to her son Bailey. Bailey did not pay much attention to his mother because he already knew how manipulative and selfish she could be. The only reason why he did everything he did was for his kids. The grandmother would use the kids as targets to get what she wanted, because she knew Bailey would listen to them and not
Montag does not really realize that it is out to get him, he just knows he does not like it and they should fix it. But he is only feeling this way because he has books and feels guilty, but he is taking his guilt by storm. Mildred is very attached to her ‘family’ in the wall. When she is mad or irritated with Montag she goes and talks to her ‘family’ because they make her feel better. But she is just programmed to think that because in reality it does not.
Anse believes that he has full control over his children, and therefore, treats his children callously and demandingly. In return, his children do not think too highly of him, regarding him with hatred or disrespect. The harsh ways that both Anse and the children treat each other, the idea that the family cannot achieve a sense of unity and love, is the basis of the tragedy in the book. Instead of staying together and supporting each other through the numerous disasters that they experience, each person in the family resolves to pursue his or her own desire, inadvertently ruining the family in the
First, in the story the author uses figurative language techniques such as metaphors by saying “His mother seemed to try to protect him, as if his father could break.” This is exaggerating his father’s emotions and that he cannot actually break and that his emotions are not in a stable place and he could lose control of them. The author uses similes when saying “He was crying, looking terrified, his breath coming in short, hot pants like some kind of hurt animal.” This shows how scared he was that he could not fully finish breathing making him pant like a dog. Also when he was on the ground, he was terrified causing him to hyperventilate. Finally, the author uses similes in the story when they say “and suddenly his voice flowed like a river breaking loose.” This is used to show that he was preparing himself to tell an important event, story and then he let loose and went on and on about this one event. Using figurative language in stories helps the reader to better visualize the characters and to feel the tone when
In his diary entry, Steve uses the word ‘real’ because he wants people to see the non-superficial side of him. Steve desires people to not ask him or see him, but look into his heart. His wording shows that he doesn’t know who he is and therefore believes he is a Monster as Ms. Petrocelli calls him. He accepts people’s judgments as his self-truth. Even though, he, himself, accepts the worst he still wants people to perceive him as a good person, especially his mom.
In some cases, the parents are only trying to help their child instead of make their child feel this way. In “ from Confetti Girl and “from Tortilla Sun”, the situations in both stories created tension between the narrator and their parents which proves that they way a child is affected by their parent not only destroys them but keeps them from facing their parents. Sometimes the child feels hopeless and neglected. When analyzing these stories, tension was created because of the different points of view between the narrator and their
But once they move to Welch, we see a more neglectful and destructive parenting style. Both Rex and Rosemary start to ignore the kids, asking them to fend for themselves and each other. This leads to both Lori and Jeannette having to help and almost manage the other two children. But in the long run, this may not have been a bad idea because it strengthened both of their independence. More and more we see this, as the Walls parents put the children in bad situations, they struggle, but eventually fix the situation and learn valuable lessons.
Although they did care greatly for Chris and his sister, they had not shown that in enough ways to prevent the tragedy of Chris’ fate. The fact that his parent were there for his physically, but not mentally had a great effect on him. According to the movie and the book “Into The Wild”, I perceived that the major catalyst for Chris to leave was his parents. Even when he was younger, he had to protect his younger sister from their parents when they would produce fierce fights that led to some physicalities. So in turn, Chris ended up being fed up and couldn’t handle the stress, which concluded with him to leave.
