Amit Kalantri, author of Wealth of Words once wrote, “Parents expect only two things from their children, obedience in their childhood and respect in their adulthood” (Daughters). Parents vary on their own understanding of their children and respecting their children’s wishes. In Shakespeare’s Taming of the Shrew and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the two fathers in the plays most certainly want the obedience and respect from their children, but do little to return the respect back to their daughters when it comes to their daughters’ marriages. The two fathers in The Taming of the Shrew and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Batista and Egeus, are two characters who cause the pursuits of their daughters in both of their respected plays. They are faced
“Be yourself, everyone else is already taken.” -Oscar Wilde The two stories Confetti Girl and Tortilla Sun they both capture the image that you aren’t always going to agree with your parents. You should always be yourself and sometimes you have to do things to make the ones you love happy. The narrators call out their parents for being selfish and only caring about what they want. When in reality their parents are doing everything they can form their kids. In both Confetti Girl and Tortilla Sun, both narrators clearly have points of views different from their parents.

This reason is that Lord Capulet's family has problems with Romeo's Family. If they never had problems then Juliet and Romeo would never killed there selves. I think they would have not committed suicide because Juliet could have simply told her father that she is in love with Romeo. But since they do have family feud if she told her father that he would have probably killed her. On the other hand when Romeo told his father about him marring Juliet his father wanted them to get married.
For example, Penelope was always trying to keep her son away from suitors and delayed the marriage of another man in order to keep the both of them safe. Keeping herself safe allowed her to focus better on giving him an improved life. “ ‘The essence of being a good parent is putting your own needs first’...It does mean keeping yourself as grounded and as stress free as possible so you can give your baby the wonderful childhood he or she deserves”(Sarah 3). In the book, Penelope does tasks to keep herself from having to marry one of the many men trying to overtake the throne. By doing so, she allows herself more time to really focus on her son, instead of him worrying about adjusting to a new father who most likely would not have his best interest in mind.
But looking at it she saw that it never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams. Just something she had grabbed up to drape her dreams over” (Hurston 72). Janie figures out that Joe is not the man she had married when the “image of Jody tumbled down” she begins to understand that Joe was not at all significant to her because he never cared for her and instead he was a bad influence. Janie figures out that he “never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams” the life she desires of with Joe Starks, is an allusion and Janie’s dreams are once again crushed. Janie is deceived by Joe because he represents empty dreams for Janie, he was a “drape [for] her dreams” Joe took advantage of Janie and manipulates her to do excessive labour for him in the store and constantly silences her.
Many people conclude that Friar Lawrence or the parents are at fault but in reality Friar Lawrence just does as Romeo and Juliet ask. The parents are clueless about the fact that their daughter was in love. Romeo and Juliet are responsible for their death because they both had free will and could have chosen their decisions differently. If you
As readers, we may not know the whole reason behind this occurrence, but Shakespeare. Readers can agree that Juliet’s parents had given her the consent to do what she wants unintentionally. Having too much freedom and free will at Juliet’s age can be beneficial, as well as disadvantages. Free will definitely do have consequences along the way like Juliet experiences. Just like Juliet, people don’t notice the freedom they have until something righteous or miserable has occurred.
Many are smothered growing up, which can lead to two basic things. You can become totally dependent on your parent or decide the break free but still somehow suffer from the lack of knowledge for doing everyday tasks. Because of the feeling of not being able to succeed on their own, many children develop anxiety. Helicopter parenting has been observed to stunts kids’ emotional and cognitive development. Children lose their voices, because their care giver, the person who provides them with everything won’t let them speak—being that without them “you would be nowhere.” Hovering over a child ‘just in case’ will freeze that picture in their mind.
It's said so often that when people hear it they really don't think anything about it. This is leaving many thinking why this question is being asked so often. Parents of these young children are taking immediate action, and letting their kid switch genders without much thought. Parents shouldn't let their children transition from a young age because gender confusion is often temporary, children may be subjected to bullying, and a change this
They both lost someone cause they would have disapproved of the love that Romeo and Juliet had. The point to me behind Romeo and Juliet is brave but sad at the same time. I think that because they went behind what their parents wanted because they loved each other. They wanted to be together and they did anything to be
