My second oldest sister was never a big fan of school. She believed she was not smart enough and that school was way too hard for her. She got pregnant by the age of 19 years old; she became a young, and happy mother. Her decision of starting a family at a young age was always part of her plans; she had wanted this all along. Her choice was never based on how school made her feel but on how she felt.
Everything Harley does in her life is for her child, no matter what circumstances occur. When Harley found out she was pregnant for her first child, her life changed.

Now that’s growing up without a childhood. Jane Smiley seems like a great parent who cares about her children but to allow her daughters to put on makeup even entering their teenage years just isn’t right. Her girls where prematurely growing up, where behaving beyond their age, and with their only priority being beautiful at all times it seem to help them in the long run. As they burned off the “Barbie stage” and grew into more important things down their lives.

Their daughters find their inner strength and overcome their own obstacles as well, with nothing but themselves and their mother’s anecdotes to get them through it all. Three of the daughters also end their primary marriages and pursue new ones. Almost none of the Asian stereotypes surrounding women are perpetuated here.

She spoke only Spanish, which made it difficult for her to want to stay in school. My mother ended up with only a third grade education and she never learned how to read. She was able to function well in life, making purchases at stores.
One of the hardest things to do as a parent is to let our adult children actually be adults - free to make their own mistakes, and live their own lives. It's very difficult to let go of the parent of a child role - and be the parent of an adult.

Isabella Walters Mrs. Freeland English II 23 September 2011 The Epic Quest of Jenna Starfire Jenna Starfire never compared herself to teens her age. In fact, Jenna always knew she was different.

Charlotte Brontë Persuasion (Jane Austen) Anne Elliot is the oldest female heroine and one of the most solid characters in Jane Austen's novels. She is level-headed in difficult situations and constant in her affections.
