Antwone’s mother was young and incarcerated at the time of his birth, but even with her age, Antwone’s mother wanted her child to be taken care of. Even though she was not able to provide care herself for Antwone, it was important to her as a mother to make sure her child would live a better life. This showed strength within his mother that she wanted what was best for Antwone. Antwone’s mother, Eva Mae, visited Antwone few times once he was removed from her custody, but later discontinued the visits. Later in life when Antwone met his mother, she was barely able to speak to him, because of the similarities between Antwone and his father.
His father and mother were quite different from one another, while they both influenced Carnegie from different point of views. His father was a weaver, before he was laid off, while his mother was the type of woman to do anything to make sure the family was financially stable. Andrew couldn’t help but admire both his figures, but he also had envy and a few bits of dislike towards them. He was always made the odd one out, as his parents always took a more liking to his older brother. Such other influences such as their family’s poverty and lack of opportunities has made him realize that he didn’t want to live such a life, as he got older.
‘“You can’t just live like this”, I said. “Why not?” Mom said. “Being homeless is an adventure”.’ Even though Walls knows her parents made the decisions that led them to where they are today, she feels unhappy for them. Walls began to realize that her parent’s decisions weren’t the best for her family, and she began to have mixed feelings for what she needed to do. ‘“Mom, you have to leave Dad”, I said’.
Marissa always got everything she wanted; I envied how she never had to do chores and got everything handed to her, but then I realized that in the end I became a more independent person because I worked hard for what I wanted. I was young and naïve, but what I did not realize was that she did not have a family that would go to the end of the earth for her and her family tried to buy her love instead of spending the time with her to show her. As a kid I had everything I needed, but not everything I wanted and that is what made me jealous of her. In Toni Cade Bambara’s piece of literature “The Lesson” Miss Moore showed kids, that knew nothing more than the projects, an expensive toy store called F.A.O. Schwartz to make them see that there
R.Evrard was raised having both parents, but that didn't last his whole childhood life. As the interview went on he explained his life struggles and how his parents later got divorced, "that's when my whole view on genders changed." he said. He explained that while his parents were together his views on gender would have been just like any other typical man’s mentality. But as he grew he seen and went through struggles with his mother being a single parent.
Twenge says, “There’s this idea that, ‘Yeah, I don’t want to work, but I’m still going to get all the stuff I want” (Peck 303). Some young adults have not even left their home before. They enjoy staying at home and not realizing that they should go out to find jobs. The main reason why young adults do not want to work is that their parents still guide them like children. Today, millions young adults are facing real problems: lack of job opportunities, housing, and trying to survive in a fast, globalized world.
It was also hard for the girl to feel at ease with her natural parents. After experiencing many family issues, I come to realize that being a father or parent is not the ability to give birth; but good parenting is really the time that one takes to love, care and raising a child. The ability to give birth can make one a dad or mom but it does not make you a parent. I would definitely empathize with the foster family for the grief and suffering this rapture may have caused to their family. I would also empathize with the daughter for being traumatized by this tragedy.
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
First, one of the challenges Dave Pelzer faced in his youth was finally being taken out of his mother’s house and put into foster care. In the beginning, he thinks that being a foster kid is going to be good but it took him a while to realize that it wasn’t what he dreamt it to be. Though he was away from abuse from his mother, foster care meant constant move for him. With all the moves he had to go through, he never really got the chance to fit in and become part of something. As soon as he felt like he was finally settling down, he left the family he was staying with.
A child doesn’t ask to be born into this world, but we have the choice to be parents if God sees fit. Perfect parents don’t just fall from the sky either, unfortunately for Dibs, he was born into a family who didn’t want anything to do with him. In the book Dibs in Search of Self, Dibs struggles to cope with life, but his parents end up struggling with their lives and the life of Dibs even more so. My personal take on this book is that it’s a bit rushed for what is supposed to be a case study, yet it still found a way to pull on my heartstrings. I wish that there was more detail surrounding Dibs’ behavioral issues.
