Cecilia neglects the fact that she suffers from this, but throughout the book, it’s very obvious that she suffers from some minor effects of OCD. “Normally I can’t leave the house unless everything is perfect. I know I’m ridiculous.” Page 203. This quote is significant because it shows how much she suffers from OCD and the fact that she laughs it off by saying she’s ridiculous, seems as if she’s denying the fact that she suffers from any disorder. Her OCD also relates to how she lives her life because reading the book, some parts showed that she tried to maintain the ‘perfect’ personality such as in areas like her daughter’s school by being a leader for the parent teacher meetings and organizing everything by
The speakers experiencing a few trials that are bringing her down in college, but she doesn’t want to make her grandmother upset with these things so she manages to hide her pain with lies. She talks about all the things she wishes she could tell her grandmother. “One often ignores one's feelings
It tried in camp, and many times later, in one form or another”(Houston 84). Jeanne does not understand what she wants to do at this point. She wants to do something that would pass her time because she can not work in the camps. Her papa wants her to do something Japanese like orodi. Jeanna tried odori but she felt that she was not good at it and she felt like she did not belong with the other Japanese students in the dance class.
Miss Caroline should be a liked character with the occasional times where we are not fond of her. The time where she might not be as likeable is when she told Scout,”…to tell [her] father not to teach [her] as it would interfere with [her] reading. “(Lee 12). Even though this is a sign of inferiority toward Scout, we have to remember Miss Caroline is teaching a class of first graders. Miss Caroline, in
Consequently, is this the advice coming from a young mother who was never given this advice herself? Is this mother giving her young daughter this advice so she does not make the same mistakes she did? For instance, when the mother says “this is how to make a good medicine to throw away a child before it even becomes a child;” (p.321) in my opinion, she gives this advice because as a young girl, the mother was a slut and maybe even became pregnant with the “girl”, but since she did not have this wise advice she did not know what to do in this situation. Therefore, the mother must give her daughter tough loving advice so that she does find herself in the same situation. Clearly, the moral of mom’s lessons is to take care of your reputation.
Regardless, her mother still is persistent on Jing Mei becoming a prodigy, despite her passionless performance and her family’s negative reaction. In return, Jing Mei becomes angry at her mother, and will do anything to change her mind. Screaming, “I wish I were dead! Like them.”, her mother freezes, disappointed in her daughter, and quits Jing Mei’s piano classes. On Page 28-29, Jing Mei’s perspective on the world becomes more apparent: “For unlike my mother, I didn’t believe I could be anything I wanted to be, I could only be me.” After Jing Mei’s cultural experiences, and her mother’s contrasted beliefs of Jing Mei’s musical power, Jing Mei feels more culturally and musically independent, as well as
When I was in middle school classmates would ask me if I could hang out with them I would always tell them no because of my parents, they would never believe me. I believe Hispanic parents are stricter than American parents because of the way the parents were raised, the town we live in, and they are very protective. The first reason for Hispanic parent begin strict is because of the way they were raised. When you are a Hispanic that has never been to Mexico you don’t understand because you will never see or feel how it is to be poor in Mexico. For example, my dad loved school he loved learning, but he only graduated from middle school, then went to work because when his dad had passed away.
In chapter 8 of the novel, Jo’s anger leads her to make a mistake which not only affects her, but also her younger sister Amy. While Jo might’ve learned her lesson in the end, it didn’t save Amy from being hurt by her older sister’s petulance. One of the main topics this book focuses on is the dynamic between the four sisters. Jo and Amy are
Furthermore, the narrator goes through a rough time during the story because her mother feels like she can be good at something and stick to it. The narrator thinks otherwise because of the fact that she wants to do something that is in her best interest. For instance, the narrator’s experiences as a child were difficult to deal with because of the suffering that the mother gave to her. The mother had authority over the narrator and forced her to involve in things that she did not want to do. An indication of the story is, “Only two kinds of daughters.
The fact that Pearl is a symbol with the one soul purpose of reminding her mother of her biggest mistake, Pearl can be seen as an antagonist to Hester. Although Pearl is the only character in the novel who is truly innocent, she is quite an annoyance to her mother. Pearl is a sort of antagonist-protagonist. Not exactly an anti-hero, but close enough. Her mother fears her at some points.

“‘They say you must learn to be a loyal and obedient subject and work to bring victory to the war. We have to enroll you in Japanese school.’” (Choi 65)That is a quote from the book when her mother got a letter saying that Sookan had to go to school. Going to school is very important because her family, especially her grandfather, had tried very hard to get Sookan out of going to school. They didn 't believe anything the teacher taught them, because all the teacher thought them was how bad the Americans are and how to make weapons. Grandfather taught Sookan, in private, about their religion and gave her a lesson almost everyday.
She sees that her teacher is still learning, but why can’t she be like the Ewell’s and only go for the 1st day? In her eyes Atticus never achieved a degree. Scout only really sees that she is learning at home with reading at night with Atticus, and listening to stories. School seems to rob the fun of learning, especially with things that are beyond her control: such as a teacher who doesn’t understand who she is, but Scout must listen and obey regardless. Atticus has more knowledge to share with his daughter, he says, “... the Ewells had been the disgrace of Maycomb for generations.” This quote is harsh, but the truth hurts.
I am currently taking this class to have a better understanding on Business Communications and also to get my Associates Degree in Criminal Justice in November. My career goal is to become a Probation officer for juvenile’s long term but for short term I would like to work with adults but not for long. I prefer to help children just because I needed an adult to help me as teenager and I never got that and I want to impact someone life. I currently am not employed do to my high risk pregnancy. My doctor thought it was best I did not work until I am no longer considered high risk and that was up until I was almost seven months pregnant so it’s hard to find a job and get maternity leave this late in my pregnancy.
When Travis Parker faces the choice of turning off his wife’s life support, I am reminded of two interviews I conducted where the interviewees had to turn off the life support of a child. (Beckford, Avil)” It was good that she put a recommendation to readers but she did not go into detail. In some cases, it is good to keep it sweet and short but hers was way too short for me honestly. Many people come to find what Beckford thinks about the book and having it short doesn’t really help. It was nice to have a summary of the book, but I think she sort of went a little overboard on the summary though.
