Alice's parents tell her who she is permitted to see. They also instruct her how to dress, and of course how not to. It is through experiences such as Alice's younger sister falling off the bed, under her watch, that Alice's parents have a crucial influence on her self-discovery. Specifically, Alice's relatives influence her self-discovery journey by not being supportive. As Alice had to grow up basically looking after her self and her younger siblings she learned that even if you do not have support you still need to follow your dreams and live you life.
A Dollhouse and “The Yellow Wallpaper” A Doll House play and “The Yellow Wallpaper” story have some similarities. Both the story and the play discuss how the wife is struggling with the way she lives with her husband and how at the end she ends her struggling. Also, both the story and the play describe the way the husband talks with his wife; both of the husbands do not use the wife’s name. Instead of the husband calling his wife’s name, he calls her “a blessed little goose” (“The Yellow Wallpaper” par. 53) and Torvald calls her “little lark” (A Dollhouse, act1, speech 4) and “my squirrel” (A Dollhouse, act1, speech 8).
I was unable to describe to Mary that her father will no longer into the room and pick her up or even tell her stories at bedtime. I also urged her brother, Edward Jr. to not try to mention it to her, but support and take care of her as best as he can. Mary was growing up and meanwhile this whole time I was telling her stories of her father and everything that happened between him and me inclusive the part with Bertha and how she burned the house down. Edward Jr. looks a younger version of his father, finally happy and married to a wonderful wife who is expecting her first son within this year. Mary enjoys going out with her friends to parties and even brings my cousin’s daughters with her.
Maggie knows she deserves the quilts made by her grandmother and aunt far more than Dee does but of course Dee thinks that everything is about her and that she should have what she wants. Maggie probably thinks that Dee will get the quilts because she had seemed to be Mama’s favorite, but not this time. Like Mama says, “This was Maggie’s portion.” Maggie deserves them way more than Dee. It is like they are back in church where once she would give Dee her “slightest whim,” she now refuses. After the fire it left Maggie with scars on the inside and out and that is why she acts so shy and timid throughout her
For example, her mom nags her by asking, "Why don't you keep your room clean like your sister?" (Oates). It is normal for most parents to encourage their children, letting them know they are proud of them and allowing them to see themselves as beautiful. On the contrary, Connie's mother tells her to, “stop gawking at yourself. Who are you?

Herberth 1 Wendy Herberth Mr. Smith ENG1101 E-Learning November 18, 2012 "Mommy dearest" "Mirror mirror on the wall", I am really like my mother after all. Daughter and mother relationships are something so valuable and should be treasured in my opinion. Many young girls admire their mothers, as they are their very first friend.
