Giovanny Sanchez May 5, 2012 Ms. Collins Barbie’s World In everyone’s childhood there is always that one special non-living figure in their personal lives, a figure we admired, something we looked up to be, like an idol. In “You Can Never Have Too Many,” Jane Smiley thanks Barbie for the effect she had on her daughter’s lives as they were growing up to be young adults; by teaching them the feminine side of woman at an early stage, which ultimately allowed their minds to have a lot more options when it really came down to figuring out who they wanted to be at an adult stage. Smiley however, does not effectively support this argument because she gives a lot of credit to Barbie for the way her daughters turn out to be but she’s forgetting
The locals quickly perceived Oprah “gifted” at the age of three because she was a talented speaker when she spoke at church. In kindergarten, she wrote to her teacher, “I don’t think I belong here because I know a lot of big words”, so she skipped kindergarten. She learned discipline and drama in the Southern Baptist Church, but she left the organization as an adult. Oprah moved around several times as a child. When she was six years old she moved to Wisconsin with her mother.
Her parents never realized that after every meal Rachel would secretly go to the bathroom upstairs and throw up everything she had eaten. Her father would beat her up and treat her like trash and her mother would just stand there and not say a word because she was weak and always did as Rachel’s dad said. In her kindergarten class, Rachel treated all the other little girls with rudeness, anger, and jealousy towards anyone who was better than her. She often spent her days in the principal’s office because of her strong character and misbehaviors. Rachel grew up, went through her dating stage, and then finally met a wonderful man that she could not picture herself without; a caring, positive, supportive husband that goes by the name of Tim.
She is unaware of the damage she is doing to her health by her binge eating and secretly eating unhealthy foods. She starts lying about her identity and her health to feel fit in. According to "Support4change" (2011), “adolescence is a stage at which we are neither a child nor an adult, life is definitely getting more complex as we attempt to find our own identity, struggle with social interactions, and grapple with moral issues” (Adolescence: 12 to 18 Years). Jenna’s poor eating habits, lack of exercise, and lack of knowledge of good health, puts her at high risk for developing diabetes.

He would probably have poured it into his milk glass had I not asked what the sam hill he was doing” (24). After Walter drenched his food in syrup, Cal pulled Scout into the kitchen and scolded her for yelling at Walter. Cal explained that Scout should be polite to guests even if they use a lot of syrup because not everyone eats the same way as the Finches. Like many six-year-olds, Scout is ignorant and thinks that the way she, or her family, does something is the only way to do it. Her ignorance and fear show her immaturity, but are typical for a
Jill and Madame Loisel reacted to hard situations different. Jill does not like to ask for help, so when the sixty-six women showed up at the pancake shop she thought she could do everything by herself. ‘“A table for sixty-six,” said a woman laughing.

All these themes or can we call them questions or problems, are what the author tries to show us and maybe answer us trough the short story “The Sin Bin or Lucy’s Heart”. I’ve got the feeling, when I read the text that Lucy truly is a well behaviour girl; she’s a Grade A student and most of the times listen to her mother. But she’s weak and naive, she wants to be liked and to be cool, or maybe she’s just an easy target for group pressure. Her mother tells her not to smoke because it’s bad for her organs etc. Although she know it’s true she does it, because Bethan her popular but bad mannered best friend does it, and had told her that it keeps you skinny.
