Keeps being saved” (Beah 52). Ishmael had to distance himself from thoughts that his family was not alive because that was too unbearable to think about. One day, a woman told Ishmael that she had seen his family in the town next to them.

The kids were running around screaming but the mother did not do anything to settle them besides yelling at them. She seemed very overwhelmed and not able to cope well with all the stress caused by Cedric’s actions. The mother had a defeated demeanor during the interview, as, if she has given up on Cedric. My next intervention move is to get Cedric into an environment that will allow him to focus in an individual counseling section. I will also want to have a family counseling session to address the stress that each family member is facing.

The birth of Michael sets the tone for the second labor, after he was born, my mother had fainted, which caused doctors to be uncomfortable with her handling her son. “I was pissed that they took my baby, and I wanted to be with my baby.” The mother hen was not having it, when the second baby came it wasn’t going anywhere. The phrase “mother hen” has always been thrown at me like it’s going out of style, or many would say “Keri’s mini me.” From a young age, bossing around little brother Jarod, was always a favorite. If mom or dad told him to go do his chores, there little miss Sena would be breathing down his neck till they were done. If he got picked on at school, the next day, those kids would back up as soon as he would walk in their
Not even saying a word, this man has Jacobs uneasy and her children fearful. When he does finally open his mouth is it to mock her by saying her master is tired of her, laughing in her face, and ridiculing her in front of her children. Being told all of these horrible qualities that Jacobs apparently has with her children present is demening. Although her children know that the doctor is a terrible man, having those kind of thoughts ringing though her head must have been awful for her mental state. It

Former slave Lewis Clark describes this assault, “He got mad at the girls, because they complained to their mothers; but he didn’t like to punish em for that for fear it would make a talk. So he ordered ‘em to go out into the field to do work that was too hard for em. Six of em said they couldn’t do it; but the mother of the seventh, guessing what it was for, told her to go and do the best she could. The other six was every one of em tied up naked and flogged, for disobeying orders.” When a master was mad about something, he immediately resorted to assaulting his slaves. When he has no explainable reason to do this, he will come up with a reason for himself.
In the end (lines 142-162) Charles can not find his book, which makes him yell for Katherine, but when she comes to help him, he can not recognize her. He does not know who she is, and asks her what she has done to his wife. He is very upset about his book being gone, which makes Katherine scared and uncomfortable. (Line 146) “His anger makes her start, like tasting sour milk.” His anger scares her, probably because she has never seen him react this way before. When he can not recognize her as his wife, she completely freezes (line 153): “She feels aware of her arms, how they dangle stupidly by her sides.” Katherine is complete shocked that he can not recognize him.
