What the ranch hands did not realize is that her loneliness led her to these actions, “She put her hand behind her back and leaned against the door frame so that her body was thrown forward.” (Steinbeck 31). Being in a relationship should satisfy one's need for attention. Curley's wife considered her marriage unhealthy and did not consider Curley a good husband.

It was difficult to watch the parents struggle, and it frustrated me that there was no discipline or punishment whatsoever; every one of the parents’ responses were passive. I thought it was very interesting to see how Child A’s sister was calm when she first came in with the parents, but as soon as they sat down and Child A began getting rowdy, she followed his every move. Unless the parents change their way of teaching, Child A would not be a great role model for his sister to follow. His loud and disruptive behavior is a definite example of the external behavior, and it would not surprise me if the child grew up to be very aggressive and possibly violent. As I watched the family, it reminded me greatly of that clip you linked in our module about the Supernanny.

In the memoir The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, the main character Jeannette goes through a collision of culture by the way her parents disagree about their religious beliefs. The difference between the two parents are shown when Jeannette says “Church was particularly excruciating when Dad came along. Dad had been raised a Baptist, but he didn’t like religion and didn’t believe in God. He believed in science and reason, he said, not superstition and voodoo. But Mom had refused to have children unless Dad agreed to raise them as Catholics and to attend church himself on holy days of obligation”.
