Jeannette’s life was hell from the time she was born until she grew up and started realizing what she wanted to do and that was to be successful. Jeannette gets asked if she owes her success as a child or did she become a women because of her childhood. Jeannette became the women she is because of her childhood no in spite it these are the reasons why? Her Education from her parents are not school, the freedom they had, and hardship. Her education I think changed a lot she went to school , But she knew sooner or later they would move again, without her dad she wouldn’t be able to know as much information as she did going to school but she learned a lot from her mom and dad.
Jeannette not only stands up for herself but also for her siblings. She calls Rose out for not raising the kids. By doing so it allows Rose to realize that she is not motherly and she needs to get her life togeth-er in order for her kids have a brighter future, and to help herself.

When Daisy made this statement she was talking about how she wishes her daughter to have less smarts and more beauty so she wouldn't have to worry about being cheated by her husband. This means that Daisy wishes herself to be unintelligent so she wouldn't have to live life worrying about the secret affair Tom has. Being unintelligent gives the advantage of not knowing the things happening in the surrounding. Knowing less, leads to a better life, in Daisy's eyes. This quote illustrates the ideals of women in the Roaring Twenties.
In Louise Erdrich’s “The Leap”, Anna’s personal experience of loss serves to develop her belief that she is responsible for her past tragedies which leads to her change of self to value her family over her independence, ultimately resulting in her greater respect of life. Anna’s regret results in her claim of responsibility. Anna’s child ponders why they have not moved thinking that “it still seems odd to [her], when [Anna and her husband] could have gone anywhere else, that they chose to stay in the town where the disaster had occurred….It was [her] mother who insisted upon it, after her child did not survive”(3). The family had the opportunity to go anywhere else, emphasizing the clear opportunity and desire to be able to move on from their

First, Molly’s human development is inhibited by her adoptive mother expecting her to behave like a lady and punishing her for success within other roles, such as Student Body President. This lack of freedom to decide what she wants to do is also applicable to her financial constraints that shaped her college decision based on scholarships as well as limitations surrounding her ability to be a film director due to her gender and sexuality. Personally, my human development was ultimately shaped by myself, however, my parents had influence in the background. While my parents expected me to attend college and get a job right after school, I ultimately wanted the same thing for myself and had some freedom in deciding which university to attend as well as what field to get a job in. However, I attended TCU, which they were strong proponents of, and pursuing jobs in the banking industry, which they regard as stable and respectable positions.
She has no choice but to accept this, otherwise she will "diminish the gift" of life. All she can offer her daughter is what she has learnt from her own life experiences.

Growing up, I saw how my mom struggled to find a career she enjoys with just her high school diploma, even though she is a very intelligent person. Seeing her unhappy and unfulfilled made me determined to change the order that I make my choices in life. Don’t get me wrong, I want to have a family eventually. But instead of having a child first, like all of the women in my family before me, I want to complete my education and start my career. Family will come after.
As I soon realized, with the glare of my mother and a disapproving father, they believed to have a child so young sealed my fate. They probably thought I would never return to school and work a minimum wage job the rest of my life. This is when I first began believing failure is not an option, I must work harder and do better to prove to my parents I will have a better future for my son and me. As my beliefs were tested as I transitioned from college to home at five months pregnant, needing to find a full-time job so I could afford becoming a mother. I was consistently rejected during my job search, until I was approximately seven months pregnant.
