Sammy, on the other hand, is older and uses escapism to help him understand and cope with not only members of the opposite sex, but understanding the dynamics of society.
Creon seems to have many of these views on her throughout the passage. This can be seen in manys instances throughout this passage such as when Creon tells Antigone “Don’t forget it was I gave you your first doll, and not very long ago either”. Her Creon is basically telling Antigone how it was not very long ago that she was only a child. Children do not normally have a lot of power, and her Creon still sees Antigone as quite powerless Another example as to where this repeats is when Creon tells Antigone “Now go straight back to your room”. This is like when a child is told to go to their room by a parent.

Before she was even two this kid was brilliant, well in my eyes anyway. She knew exactly how to win my heart, sharing all her snacks, juice boxes, and toys. Best of all she takes the blame for broken items around the house, this feature is slowly fading out I'm sad to say. I believe that she is truly thee funniest child I know, she's like a mini-me, pure entertainment. Even when she does something wrong, I can't help but laugh, I haven't figured it out if it's because of Alysia trying to hold it together to politely correct her, or because I feel like Avary knows very well that what she has done is very wrong.

I believe that women are willing to give up anything for their children.
