“What is free time? I'm a single mother. My free moments are filled with loving my little girl.” This astounding quote spoken incredibly by Roma Downey truly captures the essence of Mrs. Moreno in the sense that her heart overflows with love for her daughter, Yollie, and she would die to make Yollie happy.

Throughout the poem, Achebe uses free verse to represent the continuous flow of the crestfallen emotions and thoughts of the mother, due to the poverty she and her son have to suffer. The suffering of the single-parent family is explicitly highlighted when Achebe describes the mother’s, “ghost-smile between her teeth.” The juxtaposition “ghost-smile”, suggests that the mother’s smile is forced, she purposely held the smile up in order to cover up her depressed and hopeless emotions.

Love can also be portrayed in a depressed light when the mother used, “A broken comb and combed” her son.

Beth is a very responsible and caring as a little woman should be, yet while helping and taking care as she fills her mother’s place at the Hummels family, she got inflected by the scarlet fever. Beth pays the price for repressing entirely the manifestation of one’s demands; for simply being a little woman. One can see the attrition of energy in the labor to live like a little woman. One can also see the passive self-image that is actual encumbrance of the little woman as Beth describes herself “ stupid little Beth trotting about home, of no use anywhere but there” (360).

Introduction Growing up I always heard my mother jokingly say, “I’m a good daycare worker because I’m such a good mom, or maybe it’s the other way around.” My mother swore that the things that she learned from working at the daycare changed how she chose to raise her kids. From what I’ve heard of how my older brothers were raised, years before my mother was a daycare workers, she was right. This one case seemed to be true, but I wanted to explore how other people thought their occupations affected their parenting. How people should discipline their kids, or who should take care of them after school, or even how much time you should spend with them has been the focus of family sociology and politics for decades. These social scientists, however,
