The author of “Two Kinds”, Amy Tan creates a touching story by making the mother a static protagonist because she tries to make her daughter into someone she’s not, puts pressure and emotional stress on the main character, and doesn’t accept her daughter for who she already is.

The mother brings conflict into the story when she attempts to make June into someone she is not after comparing her to other children that she sees on television. For example, in the third paragraph the author writes “We’d watch Shirley’s old movies on TV as though they were training films” (Tan, 471). That part of the story indicates that the mother is trying to train June into becoming just like the little girl seen on TV.
