Parents have a huge influence on their kids and even though it is good to have a parent educating you, it can get to a point when it is too much. “This is how you smile to someone you don't like very much; this is how you smile to someone you don't like at all; this is how you smile to someone you like completely” (Kincaid 1). Psychological speaking, it is unhealthy for the kid to have their parents telling them what to do every second.

Always have to walk with your partner when going places for “there safety” or more or less to watch each other. You are always watched.
Think of it as a parent telling their child to clean their room but when they do they are punished for doing it wrong. It is as if we are told to be ourselves but only to a certain extent.This is also another reason why people are less creative because they are trying so hard to fit the mold that they can forget what makes us, us. Also if we are always conforming to fit into the mold and not embracing the creativity we all have, this keeps us caring about what society thinks. Therefore this leading to the ignorance of said creativity and then we are right back in the “system”. In an article by “McGraff” on teenink.com it talks about how being yourself can spark creativity and if society is putting limits on how much a person can be themselves then it also limits creativity.

My mother knew that I wasn’t content with them, she always disapproved my friends and felt as if they were taking advantage of me. Instead of listening to my mothers ' advice I defended the misguided actions of my friends.

I ended up to stuck in my feelings, and she was the one to help me to quit my feelings.
