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.
Morals are significant because without morals a person will not just pick up cultivated behavior from parents, they will pick up behaviors incorporated from themselves. An exemplification of this would be two people, where one person is less fortunate, parents have low-paying jobs ,and is struggling to take care of themselves. On the other hand, one person has everything, parents have money , and they want for nothing in the world. The working family child is a straight A student, plays sports, and has dreams to be a doctor. Whereas, the rich child plans to mooch off their parents, don’t go to college, and don’t get good grades in school.
This mother is strong believer in domestic knowledge and believes that through this wisdom her daughter will be spared from a life of promiscuity or being, in her words, a "slut". Most importantly, it allows readers to see the detrimental measures of gender roles that are brought upon young girls just coming into womanhood. It is through the understood setting, constructive
It is very important for the daughter to have a voice; it is okay that the mother is trying to prepare her daughter but she is not teaching her to be independent, intelligent or strong, but to live in fear of making a mistake or disappointing her mother. It is important for a kid to have free will and make his/hers life choices. This is why controlling your daughter on things like how to smile, how to walk and what not to sing is not healthy; just like the mother in Jamaica Kincaid’s prose-poem “Girl” does to her daughter. Nobody is perfect and a girl should not live her life trying to not upset and disappoint her mother on her every move.
The grandmother displaces her ideas that sitting like that (legs crossed) is an indication of an imminent doom that her granddaughter will face, just like how her daughter, and herself came to be. How she has lived her life when she was younger, was something that she felt would most often than not become a pattern among women. The reality she has lived scared her, and was a victim of her circumstance. She felt that she didnt have the power to change her situation, and thus thats what she predicted upon her kin. The granddaughter as young as she is has her own eyes, budding paradigm and hope.
She supported the belief that motherhood in itself was not derogatory or damaging. But when women do not acquire proper formal education, because of then duty as mother or wives then they suffer from loss of self-esteem and dignity. Wollstonecraft states that women should not sacrifice themselves at the altar of motherhood. Wollstonecraft says, “To be a mother a woman must have sense, and that independence of mind which few woman possess, who are taught to depend entirely on their husbands.
This is an extremely scary statistic considering that fiftyeight percent of children in America are living in a single parent family. This is a chilling percentage because it shows how little faith is put into a relationship before actually deciding to have children. Unfortunately not all single-parents take the time to perform the vital tasks needed to raise their children. Parents who think they would never be able to provide emotional stability for their children by themselves should have taken the time to think this through before deciding to become parents. Accidents may happen once in awhile but in most cases adults know what is at stake when planning to have a child.
The way the mother talks to her daughter we can automatically tell that the mother is in complete control of her daughter and is not going to have anything less of greatness from her daughter. The mother’s unwillingness to talk to her daughter calmly and nicely shows how much she wants her daughter to be a lady and how much control the mother has over the daughter. With the mother’s strict tone and commanding instructions we can obviously tell how much the daughter is scared or intimidated by the mother. The daughter feels like she has to listen and obey all of her mom’s
But no matter how attached a governess became to her charges, she eventually has to let them go and face the fact that she is not the children’s actual mother. This potentially devastating realization plays with the concept of womb envy and baby
The message that is most prominent in The Bonesetter 's Daughter is that the lack of communication in relationships is harmful both to the relationship and the people in it. Tan makes this point over and over again using examples of: mothers, daughters, spouses and partners. She shows that when people don 't say to other what they really mean or feel, misinterpretations can lead to hurt feelings, strain in the relationship, damaged sel0images and self-destructive behavior. Than Makes a point that all can be resolved, but usually it takes time and talking. The story also suggest that in youth many things have to learned before on even things to question human intention, or even how their actions may come across to another, through mother and daughter relationships.
In the words of Putnam, “beating kids is bad, but entirely ignoring them can be worse” (111). If a young child were to come home from school and be confronted by her parents screaming at each other, she would feel confused and hopeless. While parents not asking their daughter how her day was does not seem like a big deal, it is a necessary part of a child’s development because “cognitive stimulation by parents is essential for optimal learning” (110). Children who have parents that “talk with them frequently develop more language skills than kids whose parents rarely engage with them in conversation” (110). For this reason, if a child’s parents were severely not getting along, then they definitely would not be putting all of their energy into talking with their child and, therefore the child would have a harder time developing language skills.
As Mae Mobley’s mother verbally abused her, Aibileen took Mae Mobley in as one of her own children. Aibileen once said, “I think it bothers Miss Leefolt, but Mae Mobley my special baby” (Stockett 2). Aibileen concurs that Mae Mobley is not the most attractive, but being “cute” is not the most important characteristic of Aibileen. She values kindness, intelligence, and fairness the most and those qualities are what she tries to instill into Mae Mobley everyday. The things Mae Mobley’s mother teachers her are not just, and Aibileen took it upon herself to make sure Mae Mobley was taught the right way as long as she was around.
Working women all over know the joy that comes when they find out there will soon be a baby added to their family. She and her spouse have a lot of planning to do and a long time to plan. Many women decide to breastfeed their babies and wonder how being a breastfeeding mom will affect their job. Breastfeeding isn 't always easy no matter how natural it is. Add job stress to the fears you may already have about not being able to supply enough milk for your baby, and you may be concerned about the prospects of being able to do both.
We all learned to respect and love our parents. Tita’s mother, Mama Elena, isn 't the motherly material everyone wants to have. She orders people around, discourage them, and always puts the family tradition first, but not in a good way. In the beginning, Tita tries to cope with Mama Elena and her orders. “I’m sorry Mami.
