In the beginning of the novel, LaVaughn has a flashback to a conversation with her mother she had when she was a child asking, “Can I go to college when I’m big?” Her mom stopped in her tracks and responded: “Nobody in this building... ever went to college, nobody in my family.” Although this response could have dampened Lavaghn’s desire, instead it put her on the path of wanting to prove her mother wrong. If LaVaughn did not have determination and desire to better herself, her mother’s comment could have set LaVaughn on a path of complacency of not wanting to rise above the challenges that her family had of living in poverty. LaVaughn is a determined and bright young girl who wants to rise above life’s

Henry has both triumphs and defeats which serves to add layers to his complex character. Conflict plagues him throughout every moment in the story, and it follows him through his progression as a soldier in the Civil War and as a person. Quite possibly the most glaring demonstration of conflict from the very beginning of the novel is Man versus Man conflict. It’s difficult to place a story in one of the most famous wars fought in American history without the violence and brutality that comes along with it. The type of conflict used in this novel to add depth and complexity to the story as well as the character of Henry Fleming is Man versus Self.
Imagine you’re 15 and you walk into health class and everyone looks at you because you’re really stressed out about how you’re going to care for your child the way you need to. Less than 2% percent of pregnant teens will complete a college degree by the age of 30 and roughly 77% of teenage pregnancies are unplanned. Teenage mothers normally don’t realize that when they get pregnant, they need to look after the child, take care of it, love it, and most importantly shelter it. Meaning it’s time for them to grow up and live up to their responsibilities as a mother not just mess around and not graduate. A teenage mother will need a high school degree to get a job to care for her child.
In the book “Cut” by Cathy Glass a 13 year old girl is not getting the love and desired attention she needs. I think that the people in a child's life impact them the most in growing up and making them an adult. Parents should help to shape who you become and how you view life. They shouldn't just leave to better themselves. I feel really bad for Dawn it's really sad whats shes going through and what she does because of how her mother raised her and how she treats her, It's really unfair to Dawn.
“I have a question Jane, why don you don't ever go to town?” Blake sounded a little nervous, but I didn’t point it out. “I’m afraid people would fear me, seeing a teenage girl with deep black hair and ragged clothes. I was made fun of as a kid, just think of what would happen if everyone saw me like...this.” “I have an older sister, you look like her size. I can go home, get you some clothes and a brush. Once you clean up you and I will go to town.
The Character Development of Juliet Romeo and Juliet is a story that only spams the course of four days, however the protagonist Juliet goes through so much change. In this essay I’ll be focusing on how her character develops during the pay. When we are first introduced to Juliet she is quiet, obedient, innocent and deferent. In act 1 scene 3, her mother questions her about her view on marriage, she answers, “I’ll look to like, if looking liking move.” This suggests that she is immature because she had a childish conception of love (one can’t simply try to love). However even though she doesn’t seem very interested she still makes an effort, which emphasises how obedient she is.
However, they are incorrect because teenagers can make the right choices when given the opportunity to do so. In an article in The Guardian, they talked to teenagers who were previously in gangs. One teen recounted their experience saying, ‘My mum pleaded with me and said that if I didn 't stop I 'd be in and out of jail for the rest of my life. I left school last year when I was 16 and went to college. I finish my apprenticeship next year and I 'll be able to work.” This teenager figured out being in a gang is the wrong choice, left the gang, and changed their life around.
Back in the 1950s, women would be a stay at home mom and take care of the house and kids. However, Beneatha does not want to fit this stereotype.
