Mother thought Petey was a mutant butterfly because he was actually a moth. Reading put Calpurnia in a pensive mood, so when her mother called she didn 't come. Calpurnia 's mother was unable to see the good in anything making her pessimistic. Mother is very fond of her crockery, so when Harry broke it she was very angry. Lining up at the door was a form of deference that Calpurnia 's family used.

Hansel was very scared of stepmother, so Brave Gretel would stay up on her own by the edge of the staircase and listen to the adults talk. She overheard her parents one night arguing about money.

During the beginning of the story, her selfish behavior affects the way she thinks and behaves. For instance, she dislikes her dad, wants to eat the rice herself, but most of all she “dreamed of wearing dresses that would never be hand me downs. (2)” She could deal with her family being poor and help out her family, but she wants something else. For example, seeing “herself walking
In the heat of the moment, Steven hands the phone to Garnet and asks her to pretend to be his mom. She says that Steven and Connie were playing with swords then briskly hung up the phone. This causes Connie’s mother to ban Connie from hanging out with Steven until she meets Steven’s mother. This statement exemplifies the good mother bad mother debate because Connie’s mother labels Steven’s “mom” as a bad mother for failing to use her maternal instincts to protect the children from harm. As all adults know, bad mothers are incapable of caring for children thus children should not be in their
The daughters are “ignorant,...unmindful of all the truths and hopes” that their mothers have brought to America. Complaining about the way their mothers are not able to understand much about the new culture they are living in, the daughters dismiss their traditional Chinese ways as “stupid,” letting the mothers think there will be no hope for the Chinese traditions to be “passed from generation to generation.” There is an indirect collision between the mothers’ generation and the generations in the future; Suyuan Woo and her friends will no longer have an effect and be valued by those generations. Daughter Rose Hsu Jordan also comes across conflicts with her husband’s Ted Jordan’s mother before the couple gets married. Ted mother’s explained to Rose that “he needed to concentrate on his medical studies before he could even think about
Popo treated An-Mei like her own daughter because her mother chose to disrespect Popo and leave. Popo did not want An-Mei to be taken by her dishonorable mother so she partly raised An-Mei. Popo never spoke of An-Mei’s mother or brought her up. They treated her like a ghost almost as if she were never part of their lives (42). When Popo was towards the end of her life, An-Mei’s mother came back and made an ancient soup with a piece of her flesh in it (48).
“My mom’s mad at you, Linda,” Peggy said, “for leaving on a trip over Thanksgiving,” Peggy scowled as she picked her teeth with her nail. “Mad? Why’d she care that I left?” I asked folding my arms. “She thinks you left so you wouldn’t have to invite her and my dad for Thanksgiving.” “That’s ridiculous,” I told Peggy. “I like your parents and always enjoyed including them.
That could be the reason why I never appreciated my birthday. It is always terrible to face the fact of getting the horrible gift from god and then live up to the expectancy everyone has for me to fall and be no more than a housewife, if I’m ever going to get married. The only ones that hoped in me where my sister and manly my mother. I think she compared herself with me and she know that I will not end up to be a shame to the KIingler family, even though it looks like it now. I hated the fact of been seen as useless, and I Mother
The mother began to breakdown in tears because at that moment she could bear with the fact that her little girl past away. The mother cannot attend to her own daughter’s funeral because she is afraid that she will get caught by authorities. Many people showed up to josselines funeral to morn for her death as if she were a symbol of all those who had died in the dessert trying to make it across the border for a better
Witnessing my father chasing down my mother because of a pointless argument of my parents not caring about my siblings and I where abouts would be devastating to say the least. In The Glass Castle Jeannette and her siblings chose to appreciate the small things as they got older because they were not given materialistic items or a hot meal when they could afford it. Their mother made poor financial decisions and hardly ever put the kids first. For example, the mom chose to rent a piano over buying Brian a pair of male jeans. He had to suffer wearing girl clothes that did not even fit.
When they sat to eat dinner he said he didn’t eat collards and the pork was unclean. This also, is ruining the tradition on African American culture. Maggie’s mother promised her quilts for when she married, and when Dee found them she criticized Maggie and how she would put these quilts to use. All these years Dee looked past and their traditions and now all the sudden she wants to have a part of it. In reality she doesn’t deserved a single piece.
And at least we will determine the most likely future for Jane. Why shouldn’t we care less about the mother’s behaviour? Her mother is obviously affecting Jane; she quotes many things that her mother says, such as: “mindless garbage” (Warren, 16), “Get that woman a cheese steak!” (Warren 17), and some more, these might appear arrogant and jealous. But who cares if Jane’s mother is like that? Now Jane knows how to be selective while buying books and maybe in her daily lifestyle, and that you shouldn’t be “thin enough to be a ballerina” (Warren 16 – 17) and worry about her figure, (at least at her young age).
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.
