In “The Glass Castle”, Jeannette Walls details the conditions in which she and her three siblings are raised under by their parents, Rose and Rex Walls. Walt Disney had this quote that explained how he doesn 't believe in playing down to his children and that some parents attempt to hide things about the world from children. One may believe that Walt Disney’s quote about playing down to children is one that perfectly describes Rex and Rose Walls’ parenting style. They give the illusion that they portray parents who don 't believe in playing down to their children. On the contrary though as they are just abusive and horrible parents that abandon and exploit their children and disguise their horrible acts as early life lessons.
This made Mrs. Murphy embarrassed and the situation later escalated into a bigger circumstance.

Both fathers, King Lear from King Lear and Larry cook from A Thousand Acres, believe that their daughters are mistreating them by leaving him out in the rain and refuse to admit that they are taking advantage of them. This then results in both fathers insulting their eldest daughters by pointing out how neither Goneril or Ginny cannot carry children and how they are ungrateful for everything their father gave him. Despite being thrown into the same situation, Goneril and Ginny act in a different manner from one another. For example, when Larry bellows his insults at Ginny, “You don’t have to drive me around any more, or cook the goddamned breakfast or clean the goddamned house...Or tell me what I can do and can’t do. You barren whore!...Just a dried-up whore bitch.”(181), she says nothing back at her father and just stands there in shock and listens “I admit that I was transfixed; yes, I thought…Spittle formed in the corners of his mouth, but if it flew, I didn’t feel it.

Fish cannot climb trees as well as monkeys and cannot run fast like cheetah. Of course, if there is a swimming test, the fish will not lose anyone.
Even though Sebastian is a small, male crab he is a threat to Ariel and Ariel cannot do anything about it, but accept that she is inferior. Sebastian claims, "If your Father knew about this he would never spare you". Thus, essentialism is matched because a male crab has power over the King’s daughter because of its sex even though it is smaller eaten for dinner, and regarded with no respect. Gender is a social construction and is based on the way people grow up, likewise, Ariel is the King’s daughter and is expected to help citizens when needed, but when Ariel saves Prince Eric and falls in love with him, the King is furious and burns her collection of artefacts to assure she plays the stereotypical female role, instead, of trying to be a hero. Ariel gives into essentialism and acts the way women normally do when a problem arises, be emotional and try to connect with others, this is seen with Flounder while Ariel represses her desires on being a human and living with the love of her life.
Harry Potter is a hard book,” she said, emphasizing the word ‘hard’. “Haven't you seen the movies anyway?” she quickly added, obnoxiously smacking her pink bubble gum. “No, my parents said I’m not allowed to watch them because they don’t like wizards,” I recalled disheartedly. “That’s stupid,” she stated rather bluntly, “my parents don’t care what I watch”. Well maybe that’s why you act like a knock off Regina George, Katie, is what I wish I had said at that moment.
