Not only did Andre’s mother have communications issues with Cal but also with her own son. Her son didn’t even want to tell his mother that he was sick, let alone homosexual, even though Cal insisted. It is clear that Andre’s mother was not accepting of her son’s sexuality. She was narrow-minded and did not want to accept that her son was homosexual. In the story, Cal told of how Andre became down, and when he asked what was bothering him, he would just say he was homesick.

Mrs Reed views Jane as a burden, she treats Jane horribly as is shown in the beginning of the first chapter, “…she had dispensed from joining the group… contented, happy little children.” When Jane tried to defend herself Mrs Reed disregards her and tells her not to talk back as it is rude, without giving Jane a chance to explain her side of the story. The next encounter in the book is between Jane and John (Jane’s cousin and Mrs Reed’s only son). John treats Jane worse than one would an animal, he talks down to her and physically assaults her, and Jane’s reactions to these occurrences make it obvious that this has happened many times before as she is quite accustomed to it. However, this time Jane strikes back, this leads to her being locked up in the red room. The lack of justice in this situation is another aspect that furthers the readers’
Miller portrays the start of her vengeful needs through an intimate love and hate scene between the two characters, resulting in Proctor disowning their previous relationship: “Abby, I [Proctor] may think of you softly from time to time, but I will cut off my own hand before I’ll ever reach for you again… we never touched, Abby.” Proctor rejects any attempted reconnections with Abigail, implying he is committed to his wife, Elizabeth. This honesty from Proctor, whom she revered and adored, pains her in ways she cannot comprehend, leaving her cold and merciless as she attempts to shield herself from the unbearable scars Proctor left her. Miller’s use of “cut of my own hand” reveals Proctor’s emotions during the scene: exhaustive and slightly guilty. However, he feels frightened by Abigail intense pressure to make him hers, and

This racial language is disgusting and should not be said by a young boy, but it goes to show that Ben has inherited some of his mother’s racism. On the other hand Daisy is extremely hurt and distressed by Ben’s language towards her. Her innocent mind cannot comprehend why Ben would say such a thing, even if he was purely influenced by his mother. Mrs Preedy is very involved in her son’s life and prevents him from making his own decisions because of her racial views. She made it impossible for him to become friends with Daisy only because of her coloured skin tone.
He's my son! He'd rather see these no-good punks than his own mother? You scum…” Mrs. Cade. The reason for his low self-esteem and him losing his innocence by killing Bob is because he has to deal with lack of parental love. The extent of your loss of innocence also depends on the environment you are raised in.
Overwhelmed by vulnerability, “[Ethan] saw her [Zeena] preparing to go away”. In contemplation of this abandonment, he almost instinctively “was seized with an unreasoning dread of being left alone” (Wharton 70). This fear of lonesomeness filters into every aspect of Ethan's life, altering each area drastically. Furthermore, Ethan, despite his apparent hatred for his wife, relies on her companionship to function. On the oppose side of the marital spectrum, Zeena regularly professes her hypochondria to her husband.
Before this line, Jordan remarks that she’s “never seen a girl so mad about her husband,” it’s more like Daisy was mad with worry that her husband was off with some other woman. That’s why she would look “uneasy” when he wasn’t around, because she knew of the possibility. Daisy, entirely aware of her husband’s infidelities does nothing to stop them yet she complains that she is unhappy. She has no right to do so seeing as she had the choice of not marring Tom but
I resented her and did not feel like she was a true parent because she was always yelling or correcting me about something I would do wrong. Therefore I began to rebel. Just as Dobson stated in his book, when the relationship is not there the child tends to rebel. Personally I felt like my mother did not care. That is why I did not care to have a relationship with her.
