The mother unwittingly thrusts her own negative food issues onto her child. She further perpetuates this eating disorder by including her child on a strict diet that she herself adheres to. In order not to displease her mother, but still satisfy her hunger, Louise begins sneaking food when no one is watching.

The memory is as distinctive as in her mom 's own account: "His sibling got slaughtered when he was somewhat more youthful than you are currently". His dad does not talk about it since it was excessively difficult. Demise in view of the shade of one 's skin is only a horrendous truth in the contemporary circumstances.
