While reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, the relationship between Rex and Rose Mary walls and their children became to be very intriguing. Specifically how they raised their kids without holding anything back, an idea reinforced by a famous Walt Disney quote This quote describes how “trying to shield” children ) from reality” wouldn’t “do them any favor.” This idea was enforced by multiple occasions from the book which include letting Jeannette cook by herself at the age of 3, even after getting serious burns from cooking, letting the kids do whatever they wanted as long as they “Used common sense”, and the incident where Rex let Jeannette go upstairs with a stranger because he knew she could defend herself. The first incident revolves around how Jeannette was allowed to cook, even after having serious burns from from cooking.”She had to get right back on the saddle.” And how she “couldn’t live in fear of something as basic as fire.”(Said after Rose saw Jeanette cooking by herself again) “I was three years old...standing on a chair in front of the stove…”I was wearing the dress to cook hot dogs, watching them bob in the boiling water.” Jeanette also stated how “... she lets me cook by myself--a lot.” Rose would say “‘Good for you’, when “she saw me cooking.” Rose believes that you must not let something stop you, no matter how serious, because you must live on. If you allow something to consume you and stop you from pushing forward, you will not be able to live,

I think the theme of the My Favorite Chaperone is to always have hope. The author of My Favorite Chaperone is Jean Davies Okimoto. The main character, and Narrator, Maya, believes America is a place of hope and that people don’t give up as easily as she is used to observing in Kazakhstan. Maya hopes that she will be allowed to go to the dance, but she has very little hope because she thinks her parents will most likely say “nyet” no. Throughout the story, events occur that lessen the chance of Maya’s parents allowing her to go to the dance, including her brother getting in a fight at school and her parents blaming her, and her Papa catching her playing around and being carried by a boy after gymnastics practice, so Maya slowly loses hope.

In the book, Lindo Jong was forced to marry the boy chosen for her by the matchmaker. This meant she had to give up her happiness to fulfill the promise she made to her mother that she wouldn’t shame the family and she did everything in her power to keep that promise. Her daughter, Waverly Jong, did not have the same devotion to the meaning of the word “promise”. Amy Tan wrote, “A daughter can promise to come to dinner, but if she has a headache, if she has a traffic jam, if she wants to watch her favorite movie on TV, she no longer has a promise (Tan 42).” The younger generation does not apply as much devotion to the smaller things in life as their moms did because they did not grow up in the culture that the older
On the other hand, Alexis’s and Kasey’s parents would either get into a major family fight that will affect their children, or they will get a divorce. Afterwards, they will be alone with their mom, and Kasey’s physical changes will become worse, and the house will have many dramatic changes. I would recommend “Bad Girls Don’t Die” to anyone that likes to read horror-fiction novels. Based on reading this book, it was very good, and the qualities were incorporated smoothly throughout every chapter. On a scale of one to ten, I would rate this book a nine.
This is similar to Fahrenheit 451 when Guy Montag was trying to figure out why they burn books and what is in the books. He is also figuring out who he wants to become. If he wants to be life beete, burning books for the rest of his life or be like Granger and study what is in the books. Henderson is also similar to Walter Lee Younger in A Raisin in the Sun. In Henderson the Rain King Henderson tells his first wife, Frances that he wants to become a doctor and she just laughs at him.
Fire became something to fear, and this fear was how firemen, like Beatty, became so powerful. Fire also symbolised parts of Montag.

In third grade, she begged her mother for dance classes and was running off the bus in hopes that she wasn’t going to get beat up on the way home. In 6th grade, Laverne Cox attempted suicide because of her fear that she was disappointing her religious, late grandmother by thinking of such a sin. As you read through my paper, you will get a feel of what it might have been for Laverne growing up as Rodrick Laverne Cox to how she feels now that she is comfortable in the body she feels she belongs in. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing
Since the Everdeens and the Snows are different kinds of parents, Katniss and Kristina develop into different kinds of women.

Her parents’ impact on her causes Katniss to become a fighter and tackle whatever obstacles are thrown her way, no matter how overwhelming they seem.

“‘They say you must learn to be a loyal and obedient subject and work to bring victory to the war. We have to enroll you in Japanese school.’” (Choi 65)That is a quote from the book when her mother got a letter saying that Sookan had to go to school. Going to school is very important because her family, especially her grandfather, had tried very hard to get Sookan out of going to school. They didn 't believe anything the teacher taught them, because all the teacher thought them was how bad the Americans are and how to make weapons. Grandfather taught Sookan, in private, about their religion and gave her a lesson almost everyday.
