Immaturity and a Lack of Communication: Ripping the Family Apart in Why I Live at the P.O. In Why I Live at the P.O. Eudora Welty demonstrates that immaturity and a lack of communication, tend to have a debilitating effect on family relationships. What we see throughout the course of this short story is that repeated failures in communication between member’s of Sister’s family ultimately lead to the sundering of one of the most deeply held and sacred concepts known to humans—blood relations. This notion of petty difficulties and problems, such as immaturity, is examined and emphasised in many ways.

Despite the fact that he and his wife have been “mean and fought dirty” he knows they must break down these walls of anger and resentment, “no matter how much work it requires” (442). Dr.Ted Huston stated in the article, Will Your Marriage Last by Aviva Patz: that “Our culture is to blame for perpetuating the myth of storybook romance, which is more likely to doom a marriage than strengthen it” (449). Life alone is hard. Add a spouse, children, pets, work and daily responsibilities to the list, and we each will begin to see and feel the effects of a roller coaster of emotions. There are no exact guides on how to deal with the stress and fears that life brings our way.
This statement brought about controversy from the public as it was around the time that mothers were emerging into the workforce (Gross 2005). Psychologists criticised his opinion that the mother and child’s attachment is the most influential attachment that the child will experience. According to Gross (2005) fathers and siblings play as an important role in the child’s development as do teachers, classmates, neighbours and friends. Prior to the second world war Bowlby was commissioned by the World Health Organisation to investigate the effects of children’s development of being raised in institutions (Horst, Veer 2008). In his studies he examined the harmful effects of
“There will be issues like what are we going to do at our children’s wedding or grandchildren’s graduation? Pulling adult kids into the middle of conflict can be just as damaging when those children are grown. Older divorced parents often open up about their problems and vent about their ex-spouses, forcing adult children to take sides. This occurred in my parent’s separation and divorce where my father wanted to vent to me about his problems with my mother. It was very hard on me emotionally where then I had to set limits with my father in what he discussed with me about my mother.
She did not treat her children with the attention that every child needs, so Paul was destined to seek out her approval. At the beginning of the story, Paul’s family seems to be in distraught. His mother felt as though her children were “thrust upon her, and she could not love them.” Paul’s mother had cared so much about the appearance of her family, which had driven Paul crazy seeking her personal attention. Paul could hear whispers through the house, “there must be more money, there must be more money.” After Paul’s talk with his mother, he learns a formula for love.

It affects the child in a negative way, and often the reason for the divorce has nothing to do with the child, who gets in a big dilemma. The parents end up discussing whether the child should live with his/her mother or father, and usually they get to an "agreement", where the child lives with the mother and visits the father every once in a while. This will weaken the relationship between the child and the parents. 'A Compass and Torch' is a story written by Elizabeth Baines in 2003, and it shows an excellent example of how divorce can weaken the relationship between a father and his son, and that is exactly what the main theme of the story is: "the relationship between father and son".
