There is an internal conflict, as "the old lady," the grandmother, who lives with her married son, his wife and their three children. The theme is that age doesn't determine wisdom and persistence does not always get you what you want. The irony of the story is the outcome, and irony courses through the events and characters, especially with the grandmother and her granddaughter, June Star. Grandmother had to go everywhere the family went and wouldn't stay home to be queen for a day or for a million dollars, which implies she wasn't wanted but she couldn't be gotten rid of. Grandmother is the first one in the car, as not to be left behind.

Her divorce changed her life drastically, moving her rapidly from a middle class standing to poverty and causing her and her two children to become temporarily homeless. It’s obvious that Ann is a good mother and has taught her children responsibility. It speaks volumes to their dedication to her and how she raised them to be selfless. Most teenagers would not consider giving up their driver’s licenses and the freedom associated with it to help their mother save on car insurance premiums. It’s the “bleeding wound” that she can’t get to clot – paying high interest rates and not being able to make a dent in the principal.
She has to go everywhere we go.” When John Wesley was asked by the grandmother what he would do if confronted by the Misfit his reply was, “I’d smack his face.” But in the end we find this to be very untrue. The Misfit’s character is again the result of the breakdown in humanity, family values and all of the values that have been lost in today’s culture. The Misfit may have some social graces because he responds respectfully and apologizes to the grandmother for Bailey’s harsh comment, but there is some uneasiness about the morals his own father had as a role model. There is a hint that the Misfit’s father had a darker side and had some run-ins with the authorities. The Misfit explained to the grandmother, “Daddy was a card himself.
If the grandmother stopped preaching about how the new world has fallen from the Christian faith, and opened her eyes to her real life, she would have saved the whole family from the misfit. Garo 2 The grandmother’s son, Bailey, seemed exhausted of having to take care of his own mother. He doesn’t bother raising his head when his mother is trying to get him to read the paper about “the misfit.” This creates Foreshadowing and a bit of irony to the story because in the end the misfit is what brings him and his family to his demise. Not only does he ignore his mother, but when she wants to take the children to see the old plantation, he sighs, gets aggravated and didn’t want to be bothered. Although her tired son may have a good soul, he is not a good man in the sense he seems tired and lifeless in the story.
Living in a large family presented Carissa with a few problems. The largest of which being both parents began to change the way they treated their children. At first, Carissa was treated like a normal child, with love and care, but once her mother remarried, Carissa was treated like someone who was just visiting. In fact, Carissa recalls how her stepfather had the policy of once you turned eighteen, you had to move out; whether you were still in school or not (p. 22) Another example of indifference by Carissa’s parents, specifically her mother, is when Carissa’s stepfather threw her out of the house for being for the bus. In doing so, Carissa received lacerations to her hands.

I recently had a miscommunication encounter with my only sister, feeling as though she felt where I was coming from about the entire situation. The incident began when I told her how to raise her kids. I know how it feels to be a single parent as my mother was the same way raising us but, my uncles were there to play a father figure in our life and taught us what our mother could not. That is all that I wanted to do because, of the fact that no matter what the parents go through the kid(s) should never have suffer. There are certain things in this life that a mother cannot teach her son and as that a
