A mother is a person who loves and cares for their child unconditionally and will put her their needs before her own. When her child is sick, she will stay beside them no matter what. A mother is always there when someone is down and needs someone to talk to. However, in the stories, “The Rocking Horse Winner” and ‘The Yellow Wallpaper,” both authors portray the mothers, Hester and Jane, somewhat similar when describing their relationship with their child. The stories’ definition of “Mother” are described in a negative manner that not many readers can relate to such neglectful behavior.
Parenting is never perfect. Every parents questions whether they are raising their child correctly, and no parent ever feels like they are doing the right thing. With no clear distinction between good and bad parenting, it is usually left to personal preferences and judgements to decide which parents have adequately raised their children and which have failed. When a parent so call “fails,” often it is the children with their strong will and determination to survive that collectively raise themselves. In Jesmyn Ward’s Sing, Unburied, Sing, Leonie, one of the narrators and the mother of another narrator, Jojo, is not the most caring, hands-on mother, but is loving of her children nevertheless.

In the book Into the Wild by Jon Krakauer the story of Christopher McCandless is told. Christopher was an adventurous young man with family problems and strong philosophical beliefs. Some may blame McCandless’ life choices on mental disorder, rebellion, or even just lack of love, however I believe he went into the wild just to get away from the stress of his family and society in general. He thought of nature as some sort of therapy in itself. Chris always felt trapped when he had to abide by the rules of society. He refused to wear socks while at work, he burnt all of his cash, and turned down the gift of a new car from his parents. The wild of Alaska was supposed to be a temporary getaway for Chris, however it tragically
In the Narrative of Frederick Douglass, Douglass is tasked with not only making a case for abolitionism, but also making this case to an audience that contributes to and benefits from slavery. As such, he must provide an account that is equal parts believable and moving, all the while treading the line of not alienating his target audience of white women. However, through his depiction of slavery as a corrosive agent on the family structure and ideals, Douglass makes a sentimental appeal to white women.

Parenting has been a long practice that desires and demands unconditional sacrifices. Sacrifice is something that makes motherhood worthwhile. The mother-child relation- ship can be a standout amongst the most convoluted, and fulfilling, of all connections. Women are fuel by self-sacrifice and guilt - but everyone is the better for it. Their youngsters, who feel adored; whatever is left of us, who are saved disagreeable expe- riences with adolescents raised without affection or warmth; and mothers most impor- tantly. For, in relinquishing, a mother feels strong and liberal; and in guild she finds the motivation to right wrong.

As a photographer myself, the theory of punctum is not unknown to me; however, the application of the concept of punctum towards the perfomativity of a photograph is unchartered territory. The photograph I chose to analyze is Dorothea Lange’s renowned portrait Migrant Mother, which is a Great Depression-era photograph featuring a migrant farmer, and is among the most famous photographs from this turbulent chapter of American history.
Imagine having to live without a mother or a role model. This is what life was like for the lost boys ever since they had fallen out of their baby carriages and were never found again. In Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie, Peter and the lost boys spent their lives in Neverland without a mother or an adult role model. This is why they took Wendy Darling in as their mother. This was a big thing throughout the book which can be seen through the theme: loving mothers are important for individuals to have. Obviously people can have other role models in their lives to thrive, but the term “mother” is seen specifically in Peter Pan. This can be seen throughout the book when a mother impacted characters daily lives, the protection needed, and their well being/need
In a world full of uncertainties, there is one person everyone on this Earth dead or alive has or had, and that is a mother. What is a mother? The dictionary definition of a mother as a noun is a woman in relation to her child or children, but as a verb means bring up (a child) with care and affection.
