Salinger 's, The Catcher in the Rye, Holden Caulfield grows up from the immature person he was to a respectable man.

Holden truly only has feelings for Jane Gallagher, making him respect her privacy about sex.

Because Holden thinks highly of Jane, it makes her special to him (Salinger 160).

Besides, in a particular social context, people would hold the common view toward the most honored way of being a father, which means people would inevitably have a stereotype of hegemonic masculinity of fatherhood. The traditional stereotype of fatherhood is that being a father means being a good provider for his wife and children, which is strongly related to masculine honor (Brandth and Kvande,
She does not want to be hurt like she saw her father hurt her mother. However, at the same time, she also romanticizes about men and wants to be swept off her feet and get married, which according to Dr. Nielsen is normal.

Mate’s clinginess is revealed when she romanticizes about men and obsesses over them.
A disadvantage of this intervention is that the close bond that Ms. Malcom has with her family can be damaged, as everyone begins expressing their feelings on Irene’s behavior. For Ms. Malcom an emotional cut off needs to take place. The proximity of Ms. Malcom and her family to her parents is causing problems within the Malcom family. Ms. Malcom although independent is dependent on her parents for emotional support and this is clouding her judgements as her parents are of another generation and may have experienced the same problems and but the way the problems would have been resolved was differently because of generational gap. Ms. Malcom should proceed by emotionally separating herself from her parents as a physical separation may cause more undue stress on her.

Put me down easy, Janie, Ah’m a cracked plate” (Hurston 20). Nanny is successfully able to convince her granddaughter through her own traumatic experiences and make her feel “sympathy” as she tells Janie she doesn’t want her life to be spoiled like her own life was. At first, Janie refuses to marry Logan Killicks. Nanny being the older one, defends herself by saying “put me down easy” since she can no longer care for Janie and only her wish is for Janie to get married and be protected from the dangers she and her own daughter faced.

Machismo can be linked with violence, and it also conveys men as womanizers due to that fact that masculinity triumphs over femininity. Machismo also shows honor. In Hispanic culture, the father is the dominate man in the family, meaning he takes charge. If the father were to die, then the son will take control for the family to show honor.
But it was certainly normative. It embodied the currently most honoured way of being a man, it required men mostly to be guided by it. Ideologically, it legalized the global dominance of men over women. Hegemonic masculinity took place in certain conditions which were open to such a change. Hegemonic masculinity replaced older types of masculinity and became the prominent form of masculinity during the Victorian
Hegemonic masculinity usually consists of practices and attitudes which maintain heterosexual male domination over and the subordination of women (Weitzer and Kubrin 5). It represents a cultural idealized form of breadwinning and manhood and can be a personal as well as a collective undertaking. Moreover, hegemonic masculinity is “exclusive, anxiety-provoking, internally and hierarchically differentiated, brutal, and violent. It is pseudo-natural, tough, contradictory, crisis- prone, rich, and socially sustained” (Donaldson 645). Based on male dominance, it resembles “an economic and cultural force, and [is] dependent on social arrangements.” (645).

At first Josie hated her father Michael for what he did to her mother, but then ends up opening her heart to him and accepting him into the family. She also didn’t get along with her Nonna that well at the start, but after realizing what her Nonna went through when she was her age, Josie and her Nonna started to see eye to eye. The reason Josie didn’t get along with Katia (Nonna) that well was because of the way she treated Josie’s mother. If Christina (Josie’s mother) or Josie ever did or wanted to do something Katia will always say “people will talk” and that really annoyed both of them. Josie’s relationship with her mother is a love hate relationship, one minute they love each other to bits and the next they’ll be screaming and throwing stuff at each other.
Most of those fairytale marriages end in divorce, because they cannot deal with the hard times, the children and the differences that come about after marriage. The following groups feel that marriage should be dealt with in different manners. The functionalist believe that the incest taboo keeps the family members, from being confused about their role in the family, and it is a way to socialize the children. By feeling and believing this way, it leads them to look outside of the family for a wife or husband. They also believe that the new technology and all of the extra curriculum things for the family to do puts restrictions on the families.
In a confrontation with Juliet, Capulet releases his fury at her disobedience and reluctance by saying, “Wife, we scarce thought us blest./ That God had lent us but this only child./ But now I see one is one too much./ And that we have a curse in having her./ Out on her, hilding/” (3.5. 181). Parents influence their children profoundly through both actions and words, so at times the responsibilities and their expectations of their children deny them of seeing the reality that kids should not be controlled to fulfill the parents’ wishes. Capulet should control his anger, instead of lashing out on Juliet, just because she refuses to do something he wants. The result of his anger towards Juliet causes her to drink the potion, because she would rather die than marry Paris.
The difference of Friar and Romeo’s parents is that he will “give [Romeo]... adversity’s sweet milk, philosophy, to comfort [him] through tho [he] is banished” (Shakespeare 3.3.54-56). The reason why Romeo is more connected to Friar rather than his own parents is because Friar invests his time towards Romeo. Where his parent’s leave a gap of absence, Friar has filled the gap by offering comfort and warmth in Romeo’s troubles. Teenagers who are put in a tense situation have difficulty resisting peer pressure; therefore, they rely on their companions to become their voice of reason (Laurence 5). Romeo was put under the pressure of love towards Juliet and the threat of the feud driving a wedge between them; therefore, he is reliant towards Friar for guidance.
