One of his most notable theories was the Oedipus theory, where he believed that a child wanted to have a strong relationship with the parent of the opposite sex, so they started to gain a hatred towards their parent of the opposite sex. This theory was mostly used towards son’s and their attraction towards their mother. Over time, they would learn to hate their fathers, because they believed that the father would steal the mothers affection towards their son. Females were often left out of the question with this theory, so the Electra theory developed. The Electra theory is the psychosexual theory, where girls are in competition with their mothers for possession of their fathers.

Jeannette Walls had to experience adult things while only a child. More specifically, Walls and her family have been victims of sexual abuse. Sexual abuse is a large underlying theme in The Glass Castle. An example of this is the patriarch himself, Rex Walls. Rex was abused by his own mother when he was young.
Victim blaming is something that is very common in the Dr. Larry Nassar case. Before the USA gymnastics case, former athletes who had been violated by Nassar many years later began to come forward. Many of Nassar's victims of who are suing him claim they were sexually assaulted, could have been saved from his abuse had the people they trusted chosen to put their safety and well-being first. If parents had believed their daughters, if coaches and administrators had taken seriously the complaints of their student-athletes, the assault that was occurring to athletes could have ended a lot earlier (ESPN,
When I was growing up my cousin was getting bullied, when I was six years old, and my aunt and mom would always say, “Why can you not protect yourself, it’s okay to fight back.” Every time my aunt would visit, my mom would tell me if anyone bothers you don’t be like your cousin and let them because then you're letting them walk all over you. But in school, the message was to tell the teach for the issue to stop, which is what my cousin apparently did but I guess the situation stay the same. However, parents teach their children to fight and even the society that someone lives in can make people angry enough, to act

One 16 year old boy he had a girlfriend they were together, after a moth of being together she said that she didn’t love him anymore. “You fell very sick but you just keep it inside, you don’t want to tell it to anyone ales.
Maybe I tried just hard enough to change the status quo of how people viewed us. If you know someone that does fit some of the stereotypes above, that does not define them as a person. When people kept talking about how being homeschooled would probably suck, and they were right. Sometimes it was terrible, but not because you do not have friends or have 50 siblings and your parents are crazy for Jesus. It was because you do not feel like you fit in and that is what teenagers desire most.
My mother worried about me because I change behavior from school and dorm. She moved new place near to school and no more dorm for me.

In Jane Doe’s essay, “I Wish They’d Do It Right”, Doe opposes the idea of cohabitation instead of marriage and explains it thoroughly using her son as an example. Her son had been living with his girlfriend for seven years when they excitedly announce they are having a child. Despite Doe being thrilled to become a grandmother, discontent seethed within her due to her son’s lack of interest in marriage. Doe mainly claims to oppose the idea of cohabitation instead of marriage for the sake and wellbeing of her grandchild; furthermore, she asserts that it is economically, socially and morally impractical. I agree with Doe’s claim because, although some couples view cohabitation as the best decision for them, it does not always turn out like they

At the age of Eight he was taken away from his mother. We may know that it could of been for the best, yet that can play a role in a child when they are maturing. This can hurt kids with whom to trust, for the one person you are suppose to be able to depend on as a child was taken away from him. This can hurt the relationships they have with others for they are scared so they act out. Maybe even they are scared to get “attached” to the other caregiver, for the child may think that they will just be taken away also.
I think that exposure to intimate partner violence can be a form of abuse. This exposure can be mentally and emotionally scarring to children of all ages. Obviously some events are more tragic than others, but almost all children could suffer from traumatic events related to IPV. As the video “The Children Next Door” mentioned, 5 million children experience childhood domestic violence every year. The children in this from suffered from mood swings, and anxiety that their dad might come back for their mom.
