With respect to her children, she felt they were more of a hindrance to her fulfillment of material wealth. It is evident in how she felt “they had been thrust upon her” which signifies that they were more of an inconvenience than anything else. Through these portrayals we learn how greed for money leads to loss of love for others. Her greed hardened her heart and she became incapable of loving anything other than her desire for money. This insatiable appetite for more money is further confirmed when she receives a letter about an inheritance and how she would receive payment on her birthday each year for five years.
And the obsession is centered around, of course, that there is not enough money to be had by the family. Paul decides to set out a way to get his family more money through luck. He decides that if he rides his toy rocking horse fast enough that he will somehow ''know'' the name of the winning horse in the next derby race. His practice is proved correct and he begins to secretly funnel money to his mother. Rather than be satisfied with the winnings, Pauls desire for money grows opposed to diminishes.

Being trustful though, is a characteristic Dunstan Ramsay lacks and this results in weakened relationships. Dunstan’s trust issues arise throughout his childhood with his weak relationship with his mother. Dunstan’s mother is not the typical mother who is gentle and nurturing.

She believes that her child would help her, assure her place in the family, and save her marriage. In the other hand Maggie is not only been affect, she is also doing all of this drama for one reason, Big Daddy is really sick, so she is doing all of this for the fortune from Big Daddy, that is also why she want a son. Maggie is really affected with everything that happens between her and her husband, because her husband is an alcoholic and polemic man, something that is affecting Maggie and she does not know how fix that.

This behavior is already instilled into James because of his parents constant fighting; they seem to be paying more attention to their own needs instead of the needs of James. Strains will and can lead to crime because they reduce one’s level of social control (Agnew, 2008, p. 3). Strains often involve negative treatment by people such as parents, teachers, spouses, and employers (Agnew, 2008, p. 3). This treatment reduces the persons emotional bond and in conventional society; for example, getting low grades, loss of a job, divorce, and theft (Agnew, 2008, p.
The more money they had, the more admired and well looked upon their family was. There is evidence of this when Silas needs help deciding whether or not to sell the paint business at an unfair price to the English agents. She does not help him, and all she can do is shed tears because they are about to lose their only source of income. Furthermore, Persis is a great representation of an American woman who is not able to assist her husband when he needs help and guidance the most in his life. A different role that women play in the business enterprise is that of attaining wealth through social standards.
Although it can be argued that poverty doesn’t lead directly to abuse and pedophilia as it was in the novel, I will elaborate more in this paper of how poverty is the string to a set of these problems. But also the novel shines a light on the unwillingness of parents to take actions against abuse. The problems that chronic poverty brings were well documented in the book. The character of “Daddy Glen” struggled in the book to hold a job, which led him to move his family from places to places and somehow develop anger toward his stepdaughter Bone. Certes his abuse and pedophilia toward his stepdaughter in some views might not be a reflection of the poverty and instability he was going through but some other studies also show otherwise.
They reside down the street, and are thrown out of their home with all of their belongings confiscated, and all because they could not pay their rent. Mama did not want her children living in fear of what took place at the Jensens’, she wants them to live with the nicest things they could afford and assurance that they could keep those things. In order to give her children the assurance they deserve Mama told them that they have money in the bank. A second example of the children being able to feel secure with their financial situation, comes in the very beginning of the story. One of the children says “Teacher says I’ll need a notebook,” any of the three children can tell Mama that they are in need of new school supplies because they feel financially secure.
Each person in the family had abused their position in society and somehow used it to corrupt this young girls mind into making her feel worthless and depressed. The inspector taught the family yet another lesson on what they should do. When he said, “public men have responsibility as well as hit” this quote was the powerful statement that led many people to originally question how much being affluent affects you and what responsibility comes with. It was originally suggested in the stage directions say “the dining room of a fairly large suburban house, belonging to a prosperous manufacturer”, and then continued with the arrogant attitudes of the parents in the Biriling family. Not until nearer the end of the play
