From this scenario, I have learned about systems theory as well as other psychological theories such attachment theory. Firstly, based on my research on “Family Systems Theory “(Murray B.) family systems theory suggest that an individual, in this case, Sinead, cannot be understood as an individual alone but instead as part of a family as a family is an emotional unit. Families in every aspect are systems of interdependent and interrelated individuals that cannot be understood if a single person is isolated and examined. Each member in the family, has a specific role to play and a set of rules in which they must follow. Maintaining a certain system in the family may lead to balance in the family but also to huge dysfunction.
Morrison 's two works are filled with situations where mothers are put to the test; obligations are sole providers, demand in the upbringing of their children and the way in which they make use of their power are constantly being supervised and questioned by the community and society and it also argues that some of what these women think, feel and act can be regarded as an outcome of slavery. In Beloved, Morrison portrays a single woman named Sethe, who raises her children with the memories of slavery constantly present. In Beloved the author explores the mother-child bond, presenting depictions of the supernatural where the reader witnesses a dead infant return to life. Sethe is a mother who has experienced terrible events and she is a woman
In everyday use the mother had huge responsibilities and a hard time raising her two daughters. “In real life, I am a big-boned woman with rough, Man-working hands. … I can kill and clean a hog as mercilessly as a man.” (Everyday Use lines 26-28). This line shows us that the mother was the one who is responsible for everything.
Since birth until now, I have held a numerous amount of statuses as a sister, friend, mother, wife, soldier, teacher, and a voter. In those statuses, I had to carry myself in certain behavior occupying those statuses. These are known as roles. As a sister, more importantly, a big sister of my house as a child, I had to make sure I looked after my two baby sisters as well as, help them with homework, brushing their teeth, and helping them pick out their clothes. I also had to obtain a job,
Neuhouser describes this as esteem that comes from the outside (34). To achieve "the sentiment of one 's own existence" (Neuhouser 35), "amour-propre both presupposes and develops: the ability to step outside one’s own perspective in order to see oneself from the point of view of another" (Neuhouser 36). The technology of the self pertains to leaving one’s self to learn about it from others. As part of the vlogger mom’s audience, a fellow mother posts messages expressing her opinions about the vlogger’s confessions and adding her own experiences. Owing to these inter-exchanges, amour-propre hails from the self as the object from the eyes of others.
My mum had just pulled me out of school in haste only to bring me to my grandparents ' house. For what? I had no idea. But when my grandmother began talking, I got the picture of what was about to take place because it has happened more than I can enumerate. She went ahead to tell me that she received complaints from my mum about my behavior and that I do not listen to the corrections that my parents ask me to make with regards to my character.
Fight To Hold On Someone once said, “Change is never easy. We fight to hold on and we fight to let go.” This life lesson quote goes along with the character Sal. She had to go through a lot of difficult changes that happened in her life. She fought to hold on to the good things like stay in Bybanks and keep believing her mother is alive.
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”.
I was asked for an assignment to interview a family member from a different generation than myself , and I chose to interview my mother. It was interesting to hear her responses to some of the questions. Throughout this paper I will share her responses and what I have learned about her generation from these responses. First I will start with her earliest memories, her friends and family interactions, and a few of her opinions about the modern times. I knew a few things before
Not only was I young but I took care of my family and started to realize how hard it was to really be in her shoes. After weeks passed and she started finding out her illnesses, we got really close. I started going to her more for everything when I would have troubles and struggles. There would never be a day nor dull moment that she wouldn’t listen or give me the best advice.
According to Kirsten -Ashman and Hull (2015), “There may be value in acknowledging the differences in culture and experiences between you and your clients” (Kirst-Ashman & Hull, 2015, p. 461). It is important as Brenna’s social worker to take into account that her culture when deciding on any interventions. When setting up the birth to three classes for Brenna this would be on an individual basis. I would work with the county and the birth to three departments and set up meeting times that would both work for Brenna and the department. In working on Brenna’s continuing education this is something that could be worked on in an individual basis or there may be groups in the local community that would help single mothers continue their education.
