The pan was too heavy for me to lift when it was full of water, so I’d put a chair next to the sink. Then I’d turn on the stove, and when the water was boiling, I’d drop in the hot dogs.” (Walls 10,11). Particularly, they questioned how it is that she could use the stove at such a young age and she explained that her mother believed she was “mature for [her] age and let [her] cook for [herself] a lot” (Walls 11). At such a young age, most parents would not risk their child to cook a meal for themselves involving fire and electricity for the most part, or at least without their assistance. But Jeannette Walls did, it was a part of not being treated like the “fragile flower”, but growing up and learning in experience.

For instance, Sara is more assertive than I. She dedicated herself to become a seamstress at a young age and went to study at a gymnasium in France even though both went against the traditional roles of women. I, on the other hand, am usually passive when it comes to taking charge. In a way, if there is ever a chance for me to take on a challenge that could end up benefiting me, I would be hesitant to act. For example, I had a chance take all honor classes when I first moved to a new school but my cautious nature took over and I lost that chance to achieve more that year.

I started helping her and she started to improve right away. The next year she did care about her classes so I tried to get her to care again but it was no use she just gave up. In college I could be a tutor and help clear the fog away from the brains of some of the students to have them get the grades they want to obtain.
If people actually think about it, mothers need time to have fun with friends or have some relaxing time to themselves. They need this because once a child is grown and does not need their mother’s help with everything, they need something to turn to or they might end up feeling lonely. Nina, the author of “The Biggest Reason to Have a Life Beyond Kids” is asking the readers to think where their life is once their child is older, “Now imagine yourself at that moment: What will your life be like when your youngest child has reached adulthood?” (Paragraph 12). She is telling the readers, specifically mothers, to envision their life in the future and think how different it is going to be when they are not depended on by their little one anymore. Some may stop and realize that they do not have anywhere to go or anything to do.
