Her advice is intended to help her daughter, but also to scold her at the same time.

She wants children to be able to rely on their teacher to help them when necessary and allow them to learn and think for themselves, which would let them to expand their understanding of the world and lead a successful life in the future. Also, Montessori explains that “we try to force them to follow us without regard to their special needs.” As a result, children can feel inferior or lesser when compared to their teachers or adults. Montessori brings light to this in hopes to accommodate all children and their possible needs.
(Gibbons 98) Ellen has now set a goal for herself, she wants the foster mother to take her in, she will do anything to impress her, by showing how well behaved and clean she is. She is going to try her best. Comparatively children her age would not be worrying about dressing the best, and acting the most well behaved, because they have their parents to take care of them, but this is a huge deal for Ellen because it will make a big difference of how she will live. This puts Ellen ahead of the rest of her peers. Even though there is a possibility this may not happen she still holds onto hope.

The family is the basic unit of the society. They are peoples’ pillar of strength, inspiration, encouragement and love. From the very beginning of one’s life, the family played a very important role in the overall development of the child – his personality, interpersonal relations, the way he saw himself, and his viewed of the world. The family then is not just a group of people who shared the same name and lived under the same roof. Rather, they are people who loved each other, interacted, and helped each other grew into better individuals.
