This shows somewhat of his appreciation of his father and being able to connect with his dad on some level, when he asks his father’s opinion about the price being charged. “Dad you haven’t let anyone down I dunno what the opposite of letting someone down is but you’ve done the opposite” is a quote by Steve to his father that shows his appreciation of his father and what he has done for them. Finally we have the oldest son Wayne who is in jail, however we are able to see the guilt Wayne has and the disappointment he feels at letting his dad down. “The only reason I loved that house is because it had him and Mum in it” This shows that the Kerrigan family is a tight knit family unit who all love each other. Through this we see that all three boys respect their parents and all look up to their father as someone they want to be like when they are older.
I share a close bond with my family that i don't have with any other people. I think that if friends aren't always there for you, family is. My family may argue with each other sometimes and they can also get on my nerves, but i know that we will always make up and forgive each other because they will always be my family no matter what and i can't divorce them.My parents have sacrificed a lot for me, they save up money not only
Linda “I can’t believe nobody turned up to Willy’s funeral, my dear Willy, he was an excellent salesman and deserved to have people at least pay their respects at his funeral. Those people that Willy sold where have they gone now? Biff, Willy may not have been the finest human being that lived but he was your father he hadn’t wronged you or I in any way to feel otherwise, he always sacrificed for you and Happy so attention must be paid boys, finally attention must be paid! Your father was an exhausted man. (Biff and Happy both exit) Why did you do this to us Willy?
“…for his children he tried to offer more-an assortment of clothes for his daughter, lots of toys for his sons. He denied his wife nothing, but she was a woman who asked for little”, page 304. I grew up with parents who believed in Juan’s morality and have raised me to believe in the same as well. There came a time in his life that Romero wanted more than what he had, which made sense considering the fact that most people are often out to attain better things in life than the ones they already have. Juan began to realize he didn’t need anything better to live a better life.
My father majored in Travel Industry Management and my mother majored in Elementary Education. After completion of their degrees, they set even higher goals because “Goals Never Die.” They wanted to continue their education. My father went back to school and earned a Physical Education Degree and a Criminal Justice Degree and became an undercover Sergeant of the NC State Police. My mother earned a Master Degree in Educational Leadership and became an elementary principal. They have always set good examples and role models for other family members and encouraged them that if they could do it, then anyone can!
Both boys were loved by their families so much that it did not matter what they did or how they behaved. They knew there was never any punishment and that their parents would easily forgive them. Zachary shows greed many times throughout the story but the one case that stood out the most was when Zachary would not take the time to go to the hospital to see his little sister, Lizzie, who was dying of cancer. He said he did not have time for that and decided to do his own things. When his mother told him he should go visit her, he replied in a very ignorant manner, “I can handle my own life.
Parents usually expect their oldest child to be more capable and more responsible than the younger children. The oldest child comes to think about himself in the same way. These ways of seeing himself, of thinking about himself because of his sibling role, become part of his self-concept. Just like me I am the oldest child in family and I have two little brothers and a lot cousin, when I was little still live with my grandparents’, they always say I have to set up a good example for my brothers and cousin so they can follow and learn, so I always very careful what I have done, like when we going to school, I have to set up a good student example for them, back home need study hard or help parents at home do chores. When they saw what I do, they will just follow me what i did and learn from it.
A man that had to sell himself to be successful, meaning he always knew what was the best for him. In his later years, my father became extremely difficult to be around. The more I didn’t want to pursue his dreams, the less he wanted to be around me. It’s hard to look at his life through someone else’s perspective, as I’ve only see my one distorted view of my father, of me not believing in the same things, not valuing the same things life has given us. My father started out a great salesman, with dreams and goals.
I worked a simple job, earning just enough to spend on myself. Daddy was always the type that did not want me to work. He always told me that working ruined his childhood and teenage years. He told me to enjoy my teenage years as long as I could. He wasted no concern over me obtaining a job if I did not need one.
We argue, we fight, we even stop talking to each other at times but in the end, family is family. The love will always be there. And there is nothing I'm more grateful for than this love. It is in fact true, that the best medicine in the world is a mother's hug. My parents taught me a lot, they always take the time to help me when I need something and sometimes I feel like they care about me a little too much, which can be annoying because they act too over protective but in the end of the day, it is for my own good and they only want the best for me.
