Mother-daughter relationships are complex and diverse. Some mothers and daughters are best friends, for they can talk through everything and share their secrets. Others have to keep a distance to avoid conflict.

We need people to understand that this won’t go away on its own and sexist phrases and actions are getting old fast.
The final dissimilarity is how each of the stories end. Winnifred ends a changed person after witnessing the outcome of her brother’s charming, but manipulative attitude. After sternly ordering her daughter to clean up after a tantrum (which Zachary consistently avoided doing), she says to herself quietly, “Thank you, Zachary” (108 Wilson). This affirms that he changed her considerably into adulthood and remains there. In the latter, the author self-admittedly cannot help but be attached and devoted to her country as she explains, “But one thing is inalterable, for better or worse, for life.
As described by Mrs. Hopewell, her mother, Joy-Hulga rarely tries to connect with others, or rather, to branch out from herself; Joy-Hulga seemed to grow “less like other people and more like herself--bloated, rude, and squint-eyed” (276). Distinctly, Joy-Hulga’s hierarchy is one that has no room for anyone else at the top, and it places herself at the highest tier, making her untouchable and infallible in her mind. Because of her hierarchy that lends to an isolationary sense of superiority, Joy-Hulga is actually rather unfamiliar with social interaction, and because she assumes her superior position, she is further blinded to any guile
Nettie encounters her on a voyage to England and amidst many a dinner, Doris shares her story. “She was born to great wealth… she wanted to write books… her family was against it… [and] hoped she would marry” (pg 235).

She has showed us to be ourselves and be true, or if not it would always come back to us. Confidence is a big part of her; she has done many wild things to save masses of people on the show. “Be humble in your confidence yet courageous in your character” she
so when Nick says something like, “No I don’t think this afternoon”, it severely threatens Jordan’s lifestyle and makes her angry (Fitzgerald 155).

Stephanie Ercission in The Way We Lie (1993) asserts that we all lie, occasionally, to avoid problems and disagreements, to keep secrets, and trying to protect/help others. The thing is though that we often see ourselves as honest, and we don’t realize that we are hurting people and things in return. Ercission supports this assertion by inserting quotes and explaining all the different type of lies people make and the negative consequence of each. The different types of lies include: the white lie, facades, ignoring the plain facts, omission, stereotypes, groupthink, etc. There are many words trying to get to the point of lies being wrong such as; ignorance, destructive, ignoring, victim, or difference.
