The story starts off at my work, where I realized I wanted to “see” the world through my coworker’s eyes. My coworker’s parents are very conservative, and I had never realized until now that her parents and my parents are indeed, very different. She has to live with a long list of rules over her head, while I have a good amount of freedom and can do whatever I please. Everything my coworker does has to go through her parents, whereas mine trust me enough to know that I am able to handle whatever decision I make. No, I am not saying that she is not mature nor am I saying that she is not trustworthy, but I am saying that the mentality of our parents is so different, it is insane.
Cinderella would continue to live in a home with people who have no heart and do not care for her if it weren’t for what God and nature had done for her. I believe the purpose of the story was to show that once you are at the bottom, you can only go up. Though, Cinderella did have nature and God by her side, she progressed so much throughout the story, I could sense her confidence rising just from reading the story and picturing her character in my head and seeing her develop as the story goes on and as she sees how desperate and manipulative her sisters really are and how she truly is better than them. I believe the theme is good comes to those who are good because no matter how much Cinderella is put down she still does what she is told, she never acts up, says anything rude or maybe even to generalize it a bit more she does not stoop to their level of pettiness and desperateness. Once she does all of these good things, she gets good things granted back to her, good karma.

He falls in love not with who she is, but with an idealized form of Cathy and does not see her true self "Perhaps Adam did not see Cathy at all, so lighted was she by his eyes" claimed Steinbeck, on Ch. 13. He idealized her, therefore he did not take her objections and thoughts into consideration "Adam never comes close to seeing Cathy as she really is.
For Jem, it was his aunt. Neither of them went so far as to abuse the boys in any way, but both women kept a tight leash on the boys and lived in the same house as them during some part of their lives. Huck talked about the Widow Douglas, and said “The Widow Douglas, she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me; but it was rough living in the house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the widow was in all her ways; and so when I couldn’t stand it no longer, I lit out.” (Page

One day, Grete observed the trails that Gregory had left on the walls, so she decided it would be best if she removed some furniture from his room so that he had more space to crawl, and was able to climb the walls better. She knew that her father would not agree with what she was trying to do, and the furniture was too heavy for her to lift alone, so she asked the one person that her father and she had been trying to keep away from the room, her mother. She agreed to help, and Gregory was happy at the thought that his mother was going to walk into the same room he was in, even though he knew that he would have to stay completely hidden under the couch so that he did not scare her and so she would not faint. He was also excited about having more space to move around, and at
