The last example is,“ ‘are you sending me to New Mexico…’ ‘Why can’t I go with you?’” (paragraph 18 and 22). This finally proves that tension is created when the girl does not understand why she can't go with her mother either. Above all the tension grew because of the lack of the girls understanding when the mother said she will be gone most of the summer and that she will be living her
In paragraph 31, her mom asked her to make friends, but the daughter doesn’t see the point of it. She says she never has time for friends. She also tells mother that they have to move every few months so there's no point. Some more evidence is found in paragraph 24 when she doesn’t want to stay in New Mexico for the summer. The daughter feels like it's a world away from California.
Short Story Analysis: Two Kinds In America, you can be anything you want according to Junes mother Suyuan. The story “Two Kinds” is about a young girl named June whose mother tries just about everything in her power to make her daughter into a child prodigy. The mother Suyuan moved to America from China after losing everything including her twin daughters, and is now pushing her only daughter June almost every day to become big in any field of talent she can. While experimenting these different fields, June finds herself not being able to be the best at them and feels as though her mother does not like her as she is and that she will never be able to make her proud. The author of “Two Kinds”, Amy Tan creates a touching story by making the mother a static protagonist because she tries to make her daughter into someone she’s not, puts pressure and emotional stress on the main character, and doesn’t accept her daughter for who she already is.

There, Twyla did not want to get along with the other girl. In fact, when "the big bozo" introduced them each other, she said "My mother won't like you putting me in here." (Morrison, 1983, p1). With those words she meant that she did not want to share the room with Roberta. She used very aggressive words toward her like "The minute I walked in and the Big Bozo introduced us, I got sick to my stomach" (Morrison, 1983, p1) or even "If Roberta had laughed I would have killed her" (Morrison, 1983, p1).
When Cather had to move to Nebraska, she hated it for the first year or so. This shows Naturalism because she sulked over the fact that she had to move. Likewise, in the story, Alexandra had gone through some tough times. Cather wrote, “She began to wonder whether she would not do better to finish her life alone. What was left of life seemed unimportant.” In a Naturalistic way, Alexandra has put that way of thinking onto herself.
Alvarez,Erika Mr.Kegley Health Science/ 4th period 22 September 2015 Teen Pregnancy and Confidentiality Girls that don’t have a education may end up on the streets. In my side I said that girls that get pregnant in a really early age is really sad because they don’t think about their future, dropping out high school and parents kick them out from their houses. It is important for teens to think about their future. Girls that are 15 years old they get pregnant and at the same time they just feel like killing their self because they think that their parents will not respond for that. Yeah of course our parents are not responding for this!
In the movie, when Joan Clarke appeared for the job test, she was repeatedly asked to leave the test room as the test attended was thinking that she does not belong or a good fit for the Job. However, she finishes the test even before the allocated time and received the Alan Turing’s appreciation. It was repeatedly mentioned in the movie that the prime responsibility of women is to marry a husband and run family affairs therefore, Joan Clarke was asked by her family to return home and start her own family. Even when she was selected for this high profile job, her parents weren’t allowing her to leave her house and join Bletchley Park. This depicts the gender discrimination of society at that time, who considered women unparallel to men in every field.
She simultaneously loves and resents her children because, while she is their mother, she feels that they have taken away her freedom and self-purpose. As Edna journeys in her awakening, she strives to find meaning for herself as Edna, not her children's mother. To prove she is more than just a mother, she distances herself from normal motherly responsibilities. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children. If it was not a mother's place to look after children, whose on earth was it?”(Chopin, 15) Edna's neglect of her children stems from others expectations for her to submit to and look after her
In the excerpt,“Why can't I go with you?’ I said. ‘Izzy…” ‘New Mexico is worlds away from California, And what am I going to do for two whole months with someone I haven't seen since I was six? That was half my life ago. She's a stranger!’ I felt a sudden urge to bolt for the front door and run.” it is clear that Izzy really wants to go with her mother but her mother is not allowing her and instead, sending her to her Nana’s house. And that last sentence shows the amount of tension added to the conflict as Izzy wants to “bolt for the door and run.” And.

So I married Curley (Steinbeck 88).” She thought her mom had stole the letter she was waiting for from an agent who could get her into her career; she assumed her mom stole it because she thought her mom would have wanted her daughter to do what “normal” women do. Also, she is not considered a “normal” wife; “normal” for that time meant she was supposed to stay inside and do chores and cook. Instead, she goes around, talks to the men working and hides from her husband. Curley’s wife is lonely because no one talks to her to prevent trouble. George said to Lennie, “well, you keep away from her, ‘cause she’s a rat trap if I’ve ever seen one (Steinbeck 32).” Undoubtedly, the two characters Lennie and Curley’s are very contrasting characters; nonetheless they both share the feeling of being different and alone.
Her reaction to not being able to freely express her own mind was saying hurtful things to her mother, “Then I wish I weren’t your daughter, I wish you weren’t my mother, I shouted” (Tan 141-142). Tan was aware that once these things were said, they could not be taken back, but she was not done yet. Amy Tan wanted her mother to know that she did not want to be the obedient daughter her mother yearned for her to be. She wanted to see her mother’s anger explode, so she resurfaced the incident no one ever spoke of. Tan brought up the babies who had died, and said, “I wish I were dead!
