Prosser’s life came to a tragic halt, leaving the world wondering what she could have accomplished had she lived longer. Prosser was an inspirational figure for siblings, as well as for the people who she came into contact with in her career. Inez Beverly Prosser, born Inez Prosser was born to parents Samuel Andrew Beverly and Veola Hamilton, in the small town Yoakum, Texas. (Benjamin, Henry, Mcmahon 2005) Due to lack of public record her year of birth is not verifiable by any one specific source. Prosser is the second oldest of eleven children but the first to go to college.
Unfortunately, she could not remember anything from her first year of life. However, my grandmother explained that the 1920’s and 30’s were tough times and people had to depend on others to live. For example, the family had to borrow basic household items for everyday use. According to Erikson, the second stage is called Autonomy vs. Shame. My grandmother claimed to have vivid memories from this period in her life: her early childhood years.
She was 33 years old and did not speak perfect English, but her community had a large Spanish speaking population, so she got by just fine. When Maribel’s husband died five years ago, she went to live with her youngest daughter in Pennsylvania, but began to feel like she was intruding. Even though she said her daughter never said anything to make her feel this way, she asked her family to help her move in somewhere where she can be with people her age. She says that she is still close with her children who come to see her very often. She has seven grandchildren between her three kids and they also come to visit quite a lot.
She broke off the relationship when she felt that she could not commit to his love for her, and after discovering she was pregnant with his child. Presenting Issues: Victoria is apprehensive, about her recent reunion with her boyfriend Grant, and her daughter Hazel who is not quite a year old after she abandoned Hazel in Grant’s care shortly after her birth. The reunion also includes Elizabeth, her former foster mother and Grant’s aunt whom she has not had seen or had contact with since she was 10 years old.

John and Hope bought a house in a canyon outside Los Angeles. After moving, John and Hope had a daughter. He opened up his new business in Los Angeles, and never spent time with Hope and their daughter, which was eerily similar to that of her childhood relationship with her own father.

The boys of the family were always encouraged to do well but the girls were always told by the father they would never amount to much as they weren’t very bright and it didn’t matter anyway, so were never supported/helped. Schooling was a struggle and was at times bullied by bigger girls. She was repeatedly told by a teacher in her primary school years that she was useless and would never amount to much unless she pulled her socks up and made an effort. Secondary schooling followed the same pattern. She wanted to be a teacher/engineer but her father scoffed at that idea so she left school at 15 to work in an office as a clerical worker.
As can be seen in The Glass Castle, the Walls children (Lori, Jeannette, Brian, and Maureen) are all forced to live on the move with their parents. Most of the time Lori, Jeannette, and Brian have to take care of themselves and their youngest sister, Maureen, with little to no help from their parents. This has taught the three oldest children to be self-sufficient and independent. Maureen, on the other hand lived her whole life relying on the care of her older siblings. She never learned to be self-reliant.

I myself am a full-time working, part-time student, with no children, who unfortunately lives from paycheck to paycheck and also receives food stamps. An eight-month job search followed by a job at half the person's former pay, an eighteen month search leading to serious depression, and a five year search leading to nothing at all (Ehrenreich, 2014). Job searches in today's economy have become much longer and difficult, where in the past it would merely take a few
