Mister calls her out on her actions, and gets mad that she has been saying she’s trying to get things together for a long time. There is a moment in the film when Mister tells Pete that “You can’t help but love your mom, but you don’t have to like her.” Mister doesn’t have love for his mother, while Beah wishes his mom was still alive. The different circumstances they face fuel their different perspectives on family, and it reveals how different opinions reveal around the world. Many people have different experiences throughout their lives that fuel their perspectives on life, people, and the world in

This quote shows Ashleigh's internal conflict with herself because she is still struggling to decide whether or not to help her dad. This shows that she loves both of her parents very much because she can’t decide whether to steal from her mom to help her dad or
“Through the Tunnel” illustrates the importance of having control in life but still utilizing a “backup” plan in times of need. Jerry began as a child that was dependent on his mother but, as the story built itself, forced his mother to give him a leash. Letting him go to the bay alone was an idea that the mother resented, but saw it as necessary for him in this time of shift from dependence to independence. These thoughts appear the most evident after the mother thinks, “...he’s old enough to be safe without me. Have I been keeping him too close?...I must be careful.” (page 243).
James and Octavia’s relationship characterizes a unique paradigm of mother and son affection. Simultaneously, she must also fill in the fatherly love James is deprived of due to his father’s absence, which plays an important role in how she raises James. A mother’s love is unconditional and nurturing, however, Octavia provides a “harsh” standard of love with the expectation that James will mature into an independent man. At a young age, James learned to display no gesture of vulnerability. As much as he wishes to convey love to his mother, he need to refrain because, she says, “that’s weakness and that’s crybaby stuff” (1).
This could have been placed directly after they moved into the new house, but having her wait so she could finish her schooling shows that it is something that she really desires and is not a wandering thought that she picked up along the way and decided to run with, which she was often reprimanded for. This also brings closure for the reader because it puts Beneatha with a man that she truly loves, not one that has been handpicked to satisfy all of her and her families needs. Along with this, she is also wearing her hair in its natural state. Originally she had been mocked for this, but after searching long and hard she had finally found who she wanted to
Mothers would look negligent in comparison to the fathers. Mothers are praised for keeping their children out of harm's way, in many ways a father is not expected to follow the same guidelines. Fathers in animated movies always play a more animated
People usually cohabitate because they either believe they are not ready for marriage or couples simply don’t believe in it. In the essay “I Wish They’d Do It Right” by Jane Doe, we are presented with Doe’s real life experience about her son cohabitating. Doe’s son and his girlfriend have been living together for seven years and finally have a kid, but they are not yet married. Doe assumes that the child will give them a reason to actually get married, however they tell her that they don’t believe in marriage. Doe essentially objects to their decision of not getting married because she doesn’t want her grandchild to go through any inconveniences or embarrassments by his peers.
Barry seems to have an internal conflict about the future and how it will play out for his daughter and him, and is fearful about if it that means they won’t be as close anymore. “He was acutely aware of how tenuous her life was, of how much he would suffer if he lost her. For a long time afterward, he thought of her as being intricately constructed of fragile paper.” (3). For a father, Barry is fairly protective of her daughter ever since she was younger, and it seems that seeing her grow up makes it difficult for him to let go of her and let her grow up a
Because of their busy schedules, it was hard for them to spend a lot of time with their children and family, allowing them to become more distant with them, and eventually having them live with their aunt Dede’s house after they died. At first, when Minerva would have her son, Manolito, stay at her sister Patria’s house, Patria wouldn’t understand how she could leave her own child away from her for such a long time. She was going to ask why she was doing such a thing but then “[she] saw it did hurt her to make this sacrifice she was convinced she needed to make.” At first, Patria wonders why Minerva had to travel around for her activities if it meant having to distance herself from her son. She later realizes that Minerva doesn’t care, since participating in the revolution is what she believes in, and would affect the greater good. Imagine life if the Mirabal sisters decided to back out of the revolution because they were afraid it would affect the relationship between themselves and their family.
