In the beginning of the book, when Dave talks about when the family was once good, he calls his mom, “Mom”. He later on calls her “Mother” when she becomes abusive. He does this because he became distant from her when the abusive started. He didn’t feel safe referring to her as mom anymore because she wasn’t the nurturing mother that she once was. Before the abuse, Mother would’ve done anything for her family.
The mother is portrayed as hysterical and invoking god she blames herself. The author does not tell you what the mother was doing when this accident happened. This may not matter but sometimes the unknown leaves questions of doubt. “The Daddy was around the side of the house hanging a door for the tenant when he heard the child's screams” The talks about the Daddy running to the child and the mother standing there. The Daddy is always active as the describe the mom as standing there I feel that because the father doesn’t play the stereotypical father role this makes the mother to assume more guilt in the story.
His father didn’t tell him why they were there, what they had done to the country and who they were. Because none of this was explained to Bruno he had just thought they were normal people and he wanted to be with other children so badly. Bruno is always curious and that causes him to find Shmuel. Because Bruno’s Mother and Father did not tell him about Jews and what is really happening in the camp, and also Shmuel wouldn’t tell him because he wanted a friend and he wanted decent food. Bruno’s Mother telling Bruno not to go into the back yard is only tempting him to go in there, and when he does get caught in there he hardly gets in trouble, so he thinks if he keeps going in mother isn’t going to care.
Montag is her family, but she doesn't consider him as much as a family compaired to the parlor walls. Another example that Mildred should start thinking for herself is she pulled the alarm on her own husband, Montag. Montag did something against the law and Mildred didn't want to get into trouble so as a result of it, "she pulled the alarm" (Bradbury 115). She lost her husband because she listened to the
However, it was pressure from his mother and his children that lead him to detour off-road to look for this old house that his mother so much wanted to see and that his children were pestering him about. Like most men he did what he thought was necessary to get them to stop pestering him. June Star leaning over her mother’s shoulder in the car and whining about how they never got to do anything that they wanted to do is a common trait of a small child. “I don’t want to hold hands with him he reminds me of a pig” she says about Hiram, and

He hurts his mom after telling her he does not love her and “felt sorry for his mother and she made him lie. He would go to Kansas City and get a job and she would feel all right about it” (Hemingway 77). Krebs means it when he says he does not and cannot love anybody which hurts his mother deeply. Because he has lost or weakened his values he hides how he truly feels and lies and takes it back. He decides that he will run away to Kansas only to escape the problems he cannot confront in his family.
I think there were other reasons also, but the story points to this one in many places. First of all, Connie was not happy at home. To me Connie felt ignored by her dad and the other family members because they could give her the attention she wanted. This sort of relates to John Hughes movie "Sixteen Candles" Sam Baker struggles to get through the day on her 16th birthday because her entire family has forgotten about it and gave there attention elsewhere, to her sister wedding. Her father was most of the time at work and when he was home he didn't bother talking much to Connie.
The mother doesn’t understand the daughter’s life, and this failure to understand leads to her to distrust her daughter. Dee sees her new persona as liberating, whereas the mother sees it as a rejection of her family and her origins. Dee indeed rejects her family by changing her name to “Wangero”, “she’s dead”, she responded when asked “what happen to Dee” (28). Later, Dee tried to get stuff from the house like the bench, the butter chunk, just as decorative objects but her mother sees those “objects” as a symbol, as a living proof of her family, her tradition. The mother wants her daughter to see those precious objects that way too.
Ma-Maw’s frustration grew out of fear of the unknown, she would say she wished Pa-Paw was here because he would take care of her and would know what to do. Here comes the elbows part of this story; some nights when Julie was trying to cook, Ma-Maw would help with dishes but would nudge Julie out of the way if she got too close to the sink because this space was hers at the time. We knew at that point that we would not only have to focus on our lives; finding schools for the kids, getting back to work, gutting homes, buying clothes and cars, but we had to also worry about the well being of our grandmother, both mentally and physically. So after new doctors and hair stylist were found we sat down and developed a plan which included her wishes and path back to independence and privacy. Now looking back on our
