Poverty was almost like a curse given to Rosa Vargas by her husband, who “left without even leaving a dollar for bologna or a note explaining how come” (29). Many women today with young children are forced to take care of their families as single mothers without the support of the father. These women are often too busy taking care of the children to find a job. The fact that Rosa is a Hispanic affects her ability to find a job as well. Even if she did have the time, her ethnicity and gender would be cause for discrimination.
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. She has a brand new foster home she has to adjust to. She also who has a mother who just throughs her to the side and doesnt care shes there. Lastly she has a social worker who doesn't even try to help make Dawns situations in life better. First off Dawn is a 13 year old girl, and even though she has had no one to guide her through life she should have better morals for herself.
This may be because he was never loved as a child or just doesn’t understand what family is. For the rest of them who stayed in the woods, Duchess was the mother, she held piney, the daughter in the cabin protecting her until she died in her arms. Mother Shipton was the grandmother, she starved herself to be able to feed everybody else, she looked out for everybody hoping that her sacrifice would give everybody a chance to make it out alive. Tom was the son, he looked up to John Oakurst like a father and he left to
She had grown up with two sisters, her mother, grandmother, and uncle. West mother was a single young parent who went through many hardships with relationships, drug, alcohol, and physical abuse. Shaquile mother took care of her up until she wasn 't stable to care for Shaquile. Tracy took care of Shaquile from the age of one month to four years old. West had problems with her development stages, she did not develop as normally, mostly due to her mother not having time to show or teach things that she needs to know as a toddler.
I grew up being labeled not good enough already before I did anything. I haven’t had a chance to do or prove anything yet but my family already hated me simply because I was born a girl. After already having five girls, my parents wished and dreamed for a boy. They wanted a boy more than anything and they did everything they could to have a boy. They went to a Shaman for
At that time I am a single mom because the father of my child abandoned us, I do not know how to feed my son my siblings and my mom. Thinking inside if the world hated me that much or God punishes me for no reason. Asking myself why did God let my auntie curse me that way? Ask myself back again if curse is real. Moreover, realizing that maybe it is my future, but I am not that weak to give up and accept the reality wants for me.
At the age of 16, I dropped out of high school to care for my grandmother who was unable to care for herself and quickly obtained my GED within 6 months of leaving high school. As I began to grow up and mature, I started to discover my own identity. When you are a child from an immigrant family, it’s hard to find your own identity since your family members are so involved in planning who they want you to be, or telling you who you should be rather than supporting you finding out who you are. My mother and father still hold traditional family values, which seems outdated today. And they did not support me going to college or working and felt that I should marry someone and was well off who could take care of me while I tended to taking care of my family.
If a community needs to be together to be healthy, then it stands to reason that someone outside of the community, like Sethe or her daughter Denver, would not be in a very good situation that needs to be changed. Baby Suggs was the only reason that the townspeople visited, and she grew really depressed after her grandkid was killed. She wouldn’t let anyone visit anymore and, as Stamp Paid reasoned, “I been tired all my days, bone-tired, but now it’s in the marrow. Must be what Baby Suggs felt when she lay down and thought about color for the rest of her life”. (pg.
My sister and I didn’t like being away from our mother, we felt lost and sad. I never thought I would be able to see my mom again, we got to have visits with her but it was so hard to say goodbye. I was only 7 when we left my younger sister was 3. We had to leave at a young age. The most bad or mean thing I have ever done
I was also held back in first grade so i had to do it twice. the meds they gave me for my ADHD changed me i wouldnt talk, eat, or do anything i just wanted to be alone and that is what made me not like medicine or doctors. then from around 3rd grade until 7th grade my parents constantly argued
