A problem in “The Veldt” is parents know that they are spoiling their kids but don’t do anything about it. On the Today website they give a survey to 6,000 partents, “Moms reported they plan to spend an average of $271 per child this holiday, with one in 10 saying they’ll shell out upwards of $500 on gifts for each child.” It also said that more that half of the parents thought that they spoil their kids more than they were spoiled. The parents in the story knew that giving their kids everything they wanted was making it harder for them. The quote shows even when they know they are spoiling their kids, they still don’t do anything. Parents know that they are spoiling kids, but don’t
After Karen was in the accident they found out that she was unable to conceive, so her motherly instinct was misplaced to her cat Lady. (Pg. 4) A lot of owners have misplaced instincts that are meant for other humans. That is why they pay so much to help keep pets alive, because they are their family, and no one wants a family member to die. People like the Levering pay thousands of dollars for their animals to stay alive because they feel like their

From Hulga’s point of view, having servants was normal as was treating them poorly. Due to her mother caring about the farm, she disposed of servants with bad work ethics. Unknowingly, Mrs. Hopewell passes this decorum to her daughter and the narrator says, “She had had plenty of experience with trash. Before the Freemans she had averaged one tenant family a year. The wives of these farmers were not the kind you would want to be around you for very long.” Children learn manners, gratitude, and integrity from their parents which are all things Hulga was not exposed to.
Mom also loses her job because she did not want to do it, she thought teaching was hard so the kids had to deal with their Mom’s dream to be an artist, not a teacher she ditches her teaching job for a low paying job because it made her happy because of this it made it hard for the kids to live a easy life but yet they still forgave mom.

After the kids dug the hole Dad fills it with trash and the hole they dug up for the Glass Castle was used as a dumpster even after that the kids still forgave him. I believe that if I were the kids and I worked that hard to be lied
Poverty was almost like a curse given to Rosa Vargas by her husband, who “left without even leaving a dollar for bologna or a note explaining how come” (29). Many women today with young children are forced to take care of their families as single mothers without the support of the father. These women are often too busy taking care of the children to find a job. The fact that Rosa is a Hispanic affects her ability to find a job as well. Even if she did have the time, her ethnicity and gender would be cause for discrimination.
This soon “resulted in earhart saving her own money and with her moms help took flying lessons and bought a plane” (purdue...). Later on she “worked as a nurse during spanish influenza and caught flu herself but survived through it” (amelia earhart). Before she had her flights, people questioned whether “she would be able to successfully perform a safe flight” (biographies). In the 1920s and 1930s it was a “popular belief that flying was not a ladylike activity and that women who took part in it must be somehow abnormal” (purdue…). Earhart ignored what people said about her and her being a woman, but instead she followed her dreams and achieved her
The most obvious change she mentions in her book is allowing Lulu to give up practicing violin. It is easy for Western parents to allow their children to give up, but not for Chinese mothers, including Amy. Playing the musical instrument was so significant in Amy’s eye, especially because both Sophia and Lulu had a talent in playing their instruments. Amy had a very high expectation of her girls, so she spent lots of money on hiring professional music teachers for her girls and kept her girls practicing hours a day. Lulu even complained to Amy once that six hours a day of violin practicing scared her friend Daniela, since she had no time left for anything else besides playing violin (62).
Charlie Chaplin's first performance was when he was when his mother lost her voice during one of her shows, but since he knew all the content the stage manager put Chaplin on stage to finish the show. His mother never regained her voice again so Chaplin and his brother had to earn money to support themselves (''Sir Charles Spencer, KBE.''). Chaplin his brother earn money by dancing in the streets to earn money (''Charlie Chaplin Born.''). This led to Chaplin joining the Eight Lancashire Lads on his mother's contract. Although it was a real job he didn't make much profit from it so he ended up working more than one job at a time.
