In “The Glass Menagerie” Amanda Wingfield, the mother of the Tom Wingfield the main character, is always rambling on about the past relationships she had.

For example, Mabel‘s brothers did not want her to be on her own when they moved out. Since they are all in debt, they try to convince her to go live with their married sister (Lawrence 455).

This meant she had to give up her happiness to fulfill the promise she made to her mother that she wouldn’t shame the family and she did everything in her power to keep that promise. Her daughter, Waverly Jong, did not have the same devotion to the meaning of the word “promise”. Amy Tan wrote, “A daughter can promise to come to dinner, but if she has a headache, if she has a traffic jam, if she wants to watch her favorite movie on TV, she no longer has a promise (Tan 42).” The younger generation does not apply as much devotion to the smaller things in life as their moms did because they did not grow up in the culture that the older
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”.
being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person. Being a Certified Nursing Assistant, the two essays I chose were ones I could relate to.

When Tea Cake and Janie first met, he would do things with her. The book says, “It was so crazy digging worms by the lamp light and setting out for Lake Sabelia after midnight that she felt like a child breaking rules” (102). Janie’s first two husbands, Logan and Joe would not do anything fun with Janie. Logan would have Janie working in the kitchen or the field and Joe would have her working in the store and have her as a “trophy wife” to look at. But Tea Cake was not like that.

In my personal experience, when my mom didn 't have money for a babysitter she would usually take us to my aunt or wouldn 't go to work for that day She would always find a way for my brother and I wouldn 't be alone. Their was a time where me and my mom had gone to pick up my little sister, there was lady that works on the stop sign and told us if we knew this little girl and this other lady had said that she was been walking from the corner and she had been lost so we told her, where she lives and we found her babysitter and she had left the little girl all alone in the house while the babysitter goes to the market. This isn 't a good babysitter because she left the girl alone, what would she have done is she didn 't see her in the house, this lady was irresponsible for leaving the girl alone. Luscombe said “Shanesha Taylor, who left two toddlers in a hot Arizona car for more than an hour”, these kind of cases make me sad and think how a mother can leave their children in a car.
