Mama is always hoping that the plant will pull through and survive. She feels the same way for her family. She hopes that they will be able to move into a new house with a garden and live a better life. “…Big Walter used to say, he’d get right wet in the eyes sometimes, lean his head back with the water standing in his eyes and say, ‘Seem like God didn’t see fit to give the black man nothing but dreams – but He did give us children to make them dreams seem worth while.’”(Act 1, Scene 1; 47). This proves that Mama wanted the best for her family.
Lena Younger (also known as ‘Mama’) is portrayed as the matriarch figure of the Younger family. Since her husband, “Big” Walter Younger died, she has become, “the center of her family 's life and controls many of the interactions of the other family members… such as the economic decisions”. (Bloom) She is religious, moral, and always ready to give advice to her children and grandchild. However, it’s her traditional and conservative way of thinking that leads to many disagreements with the other characters. While Mama “represents the traditional prescribed domestic role assigned to the women of her generation”, her daughter-in-law Ruth Younger represents “a generation in transition”.
Throughout the majority of the play, Walter wants to change the way they live and constantly tries convincing his mother to use the insurance money to start a liquor store. I chose this excerpt because I thought it was interesting how Hansberry chose to use Walter having the same breakfast as him trying to express there not being change around the apartment. This connects to the U.S history packet when it talked about the African Americans headed off to war and being treated better out there than back at home, and then when they got home they wanted home. Near the end of the play on page 148 when Walter has to decide if the family keeps the house or receives the money he says this to Lindner: Walter. And we have decided to move into our house because my father- my father- he earned it for us brick by brick.
To begin with, there are many stereotypes that are mentioned in this episode of the Simpsons. A stereotype that this episode reinforces is that families prefer to eat dinner whilst watching television. In an attempt to correct this, Homer tries to get his family to sit around the table, however he is soon disappointed as his family has terrible table manners. Another stereotype that this show augments is that men and women have strict gender roles. Homer works in a company and brings in money and Marge is a housewife and she is expected to cook.
Women have the moral right to choose what to do with their body. A woman should not be forced into motherhood because of an unwanted pregnancy. Denying a woman the right to choose to have an abortion will condemn her to be financially liable and take care of an unwanted child for 18 years. Many people who take the pro-life stance fail to acknowdledge the hardships and difficulties of motherhood. They argue that “babies should be saved” yet how they plan to save children from a rough and tumoltous life when 73% of women who have abortions do it because they are unable to afford and provide for a child and 48% would be single mothers; all factors that affect children’s development and progress in life (“U.S.
She saw that it was tearing him apart. Mama just wants her family to be happy and not be fighting all the time and when she finds out the Ruth is expecting another baby she knows that they need to get a house soon. When the check comes she knows that everyone is going to fight over it so she goes into town and buys a house so that they could all have their own place to live and not all be cramped together.

It affects Anne in her daily life because she used to live in a normal house around all her family and now she lives in a very little space between two houses, and it affects her, because when she had a good house now she lives in a little space with all her big family and it is really uncomfortable. The behavior of Anne Frank in the situation is really positive because no matter what she always see the things in a good way, like for example when they had to move to the little house she sees it not like a hiding place, more like a little home that they make them feel more close to her family and also look it like in that place all her family will be safer than in the other house they were before. They don't need to have best response to the conflict because Anne has a really good response, well the family need to calm down a little because they have to be more like Anne because she is really positive with the situation and has a very good response to the conflict, so the family needed to have more calm and be more positive like
As one can see, many mothers in today 's society would not be nearly as picky and constructive as the mother within "Girl" written by Jamaica Kincaid. Young girls almost always look up first to their mother for guidance and instruction on how to be a woman. Although the advice used in this story was used to help the young girl, it was also used to scold her as well. The mother 's strong belief in a woman having domestic knowledge is what drives her to preach the life lessons of a good woman to her daughter. It is through these lessons that she hopes for her daughter to be respected within her own home and by her community as well.

Tom and Laura Wingfield live in an apartment building with their mother, Amanda, who tends to be overbearing at times. Amanda sets expectations very high for her children and believes that when they fall short they are not trying. Although she only wishes for her children’s happiness and

Its just one of my goals to give back to them especially my mom because of all the things she went through and wants me to be a better man when I’m older.

She chose to move away from her parents and live with her older sister and that decision she made was the main reason why she succeeded in life. In order for a person to learn, they have to either make mistakes or learn from others mistakes. Jeanette 's parents mistake was that they didn’t think about their future and they did whatever they could to survive their hardships. Similarly, Jeanette leaned from her parents mistakes that in order for her to be successful she needs to make a sacrifice and that sacrifice will lead her to a purposeful and a brighter future. She discovered many things about her parents as she was
