Above all, one of the things that really stood out in Jeannette’s life going hand in hand with forgiveness was her father being an alcoholic. She lived her life dealing with rages as well as experiencing sweet and memorable moments with her father, Rex. Jeannette was a daddy’s girl and always tried to look for the good in everyone after her mother told her this quote, “You have to find the redeeming quality and love the person for that” (Walls 144). Rex always wanted the best for his family even though sometimes he would not go the right way in handling things.

Mrs. Lemry goes out of her way for Sarah after Eric tells Lamry about how Sarah's dad is abusive. Mrs.Lemry went out of her way by letting Sarah stay with her. “Getting Sarah to stay at Lemry's place was easier than I thought-she was still majorly pissed at me for
I picked this passage over the other passage in the story because, since Addie had one part in, As I Lay Dying, the words had more meaning behind it than everyone else’s passage in the story. Also, I had made this writing choice over another because I felt Addie expressed her true feelings about Anse, why she married him in the first place, and how becoming a mother was such a terrible thing to occurred. Although some mothers are filled with happiness in joy of becoming one, but sadly, not some mothers are not. This is unfortunate for child/children and it affects them badly because a mother’s love is what child/children desires. By Addie not being pleased becoming a mother, her ‘love’ reflect its on her relationships with her children, expect when it came to Jewels.
The author portrays her as a selfish and manipulative person. Her main priority is not the well beings of her family but of herself. As her son, grandchildren and daughter in law were taken away all she did was plea for her own life. Convincing the misfit that he should let her live because she was a lady and he was a “good boy” is all she could think to do.
I admired Zehrunisa and how hardworking she was for her family, I looked down upon how abusive she was to Abdul because he did not deserve it. I found Asha’s strive for independence and power inspiring, but her means of obtaining it to be corruptive and dishonest. I really liked how kindhearted Manju was and how she took the time to teach the slum children, even though she really didn’t have to. She was also very kind to Meena and tried to be a very good friend to her because of her situation with her family. I was upset when Meena decided to take her own life because I feel someone could have helped her; but at the same time, if I was in her place, I probably would have done the same thing.
Alice describes her daughter as, “fun, bubbly, friendly, and strong.” Her relationship is, “a close one. We are like best friends. She’s not perfect, but she’s a darn good kid.” Laura lights up every room she walks into with her positive energy.
The relationship was not necessarily abusive; however, it seems as though there is some sort of strain. Perhaps, Brently keeps Louise tied down or he thinks of her a stereotypical woman. Everyone seems to believe that Louise is too fragile because of her hear. Because Louise has heart trouble, her sister, Josephine, has to break the news to her that Brently has seemed to have died from a railroad accident. Either way, Louise knows that she should be upset.
Clare was Augustine and Marie St. Clare’s daughter. Her mother, Marie was a dreadful woman who lacked empathy and was particularly resentful towards the slaves. Augustine St. Clare was a decent man and he saw Eva as being the embodiment of his mother, who he had adored and respected so much. Eva exuded his mother’s positive qualities as a human being and maintained a certain childish innocence that blinded her from the atrocities of her surroundings. She was very kind to the slaves and had been keen on her dad purchasing Tom after he rescued her from drowning.
This character has an unbelievable amount of backstory and depth to it because he is a good brother, great son, and a man of honor. Jem is a good brother, on page 43 it says “I know what we are going to play.” This shows that he plays with his younger sister, which many older brothers do not. Another example is that he cares about his sister, Scout. On page 44 it says “Don't eat things you find scout.”
The permissive parenting style best exemplifies Rex and Rosemary Walls’ parenting because they rarely discipline their children, they act more like their kids friends than their parents, and they do not believe in their children’s success. Rex and Rosemary didn’t concern themselves when punishing their children for doing bad things. “It was self -defense, I piped. Dad had always said that self- defense was a justifiable reason for shooting someone” (89). Most parents would have punished their children for shooting someone, so parents who wouldn’t are considered permissive parents.
In the memoir “The Glass Castle” by Jeannette Walls, she, and her siblings live in extreme poverty because of their unfit parents, Rose Mary and Rex, who struggle or lack interest in getting a job. Rose Mary and Rex are unfit to raise four kids because they are both immature and lazy with regard to their parenting. An act of immaturity Rose Mary and Rex shows is when they refuse to receive any forms of federal aid or grants, “Although we were the poorest family on Little Hobart Street, Mom and Dad never applied for welfare or food stamps, and they always refused charity. When teachers gave us bags of clothes from church drives, Mom made us take them back. ‘We can take care of our own,’ Mom and Dad liked to say.
