Tracy is doing well in her school work, but has temper tantrums at home when things do not go her way. Harold was recently laid off from a job he held for over 10 years and is feeling very discouraged. His mother has loaned him money until he can find another job, but he worries about his ability to take care of his family. Shirley returned home from duty three weeks ago. She was initially very happy to see her family, but is having trouble adjusting to being back home.
This quote suggests that their religion had imprisoned and probably blinded them. The boys can finally be themselves when they are let out by the eyes of the church. After school the young boy comes home and is under the care of his aunt and uncle. His uncle is a verbally abusive alcoholic. The young boy is frightened by his uncle’s abusive behaviour and tries to avoid having any sort of contact with him: “If my uncle was seen turning the corner we hid in the shadow until we had seen him safely housed” (24).
he never had a chance to meet one of his brothers seeing as the brother had died at a young age, although he never got to meet his brother it still could of left him intellectually puzzled about the past. Social: he lived in a house with a small room with pollution which could have left him self-conscious. Spiritual: his mother was Jehovah’s Witness which could mean that the background he is from was quite grounded, strict and looked out for high expectations. Positive Effects: Physical: the more he grew he became stronger and his lifestyle made him more active travelling from country to country and
Justin was fearful. He felt like he had to “walk on eggshells” because his home life was so unpredictable. He felt like nobody cared about him and so alone that he had suicidal ideations. Justin said he spent hours in his room, staying up at night and crying because he was so lonesome and afraid. But Justin has some qualities of resilience that may enable him to continue to turn his life around.
He later says how "I was not enthusiastic about his visit.... A blind man in my house was not something I looked forward to” (100). Upon the arrival of his wife’s friend, the husband is ultimately uncomfortable around Robert because he does not know how to communicate with or act around him. His discomfort is revealed when Robert and his wife were sharing their experiences “about the major things that had come to pass for them in the past ten years” (100). He felt it was necessary to join in because he thought Robert would “think [he] left the room and didn’t want [his wife] to think [he] was feeling left out” (103). It is obvious the husband is overly involved with Robert’s handicap and fails to see him as a person with his
In the poem the son says, “Sundays too my father got up early.”(line 1) My father also wakes up early all days of the week. He makes sure things are done around the house and also goes to his actual job. The money my father does make goes to our family to provide for our family and the place we live. Just like in the poem my father doesn’t get the appreciation he deserves because we don’t realize that love can be expressed through multiple ways and not just by the words “I love you”. The son also mentions, “with cracked hands that ached.” (line 3) My father is also in pain from working out in long cold hours of the day.
He states that he cant tell lies, yet he tells his father that he wont carry on with investigation and as soon as Mrs Alexander lets him know that she has some information about his investigation, then he turns straight back too it. He explains that the reason he left her before is because ‘she went inside and he didn’t know what to do’. This shows that although he can be quite clever at times, autism still plays a major part in the chapter. He doesn’t know how to socialise with anyone so he simply walked away without saying goodbye because he doesn’t know the good meaning of manners or social equilibriums. To conclude
Over the years he has set his life to a particular pattern by ignoring everyone and not putting time into them, over the years this has stacked up and has turned into an everyday exercise, ignoring and judging people in a negative way became a natural reaction to him. When Marley’s ghost confronted him, he was a bit uncertain of what to expect and thought that it might be a hoax, so when the first ghost came he was shocked but try to show no emotion as this because this is what he normally does, but when he was taken though his childhood memories and seeing all of his school friends, unconsciously Scrooge could not contain himself, and as the spirit of Christmas past asked him questions like “Do you remember where we are?” or “Do you know who this is?” Scrooge could not hold back and went on about all the adventures he used to go on. This started to warm his frozen heart and let some
In addition, he lived in an old house where the heat never works this meant that Gregory was always getting sick. However, compering Roger Wilkin’s Family, was very different Wilkins had a father figure in his life. Therefore, this meant that he did not have to work, Wilkin’s stepfather worked as a doctor so he had a stay at home mother, who took care of household duties and was able to give him the proper care he needed .Wilkins also lived in a new house with no horrible heat and water problem. That means that Wilkins was not getting sick as a great deal. Another difference between Gregory and Wilkins was their teachers.
We know this by the use of word ‘too’ in the first line where it states that he even worked on Sundays in the house by waking up early to warm up the room and polish his son’s shoes. The father at times have sudden burst of angers probably due to the frustration of hard work all week long and the ignorance of his family. We know this from line 9 ‘fearing the chronic angers of that house’. The poet is the son himself. He did not appreciate what his father did for him and his father’s love when he was young.
