Because of the state of mind of Rob Jr., he did not know whom to believe, he was torn between the wraths of hell and his parents. Rob Jr., sincerely believed that he would end up in the ‘eternal fires’ of hell, he felt compelled to stay because he did not want to be thrown in the fires of hell. Because of the brainwashing, Rob Jr. believed Mr. Marsden and decided to stay, which constituted assumed false imprisonment. Because of the confusion caused Rob Jr., by Mr. Marsden, the church held him against his will and the will of his parents. Also, the church did not allow Rob Jr. to see his parents.
He didn’t do anything wrong, yet his mom left him. I couldn’t help but imagine how I would feel if I were in his place. I felt that it was not very beneficial to write a letter to your son telling him that you have to find something interesting for yourself, especially to a son that is Billy’s age. I think that it would be very hard to understand at that age. To a child that age, they see their mom as their caregiver.
His father was doctoring his son, Frank’s mother wanted to call the police and he would not allow her to do so.

After reading the article, named “The Truth about Lying” by Judith Viorst, I was wondering whether these lie is a protective lie or a trust-keeping lie. I tell this kind of lie not to protect myself because I know she won’t scold me or give me any punishment for being late. I tell these lie to keep my mother away from worrying about me. Again, my mother trusts me a lot. She believes that I can never lie to her, I can never do anything wrong behind her back.
Serena’s father wanted to use it in court against her mother for personal gain. I asked Jim his thoughts on taping sessions and he said he has had clients do so after asking permission because, sometimes it is hard to remember everything. He said he has no problem with a client taping a session. He also went on to say it's not ok for him to tape secretly, but he can tape with permission he just never does, it's just one more thing he would have to safely store for confidentiality. He also shared that there really is no need for a therapist to tape unless it’s for learning
When they were about to leave the place someone came and put there arm around Abbey and it didn’t tell what she did till the next chapter. To tell you the truth I really didn’t want to read it because I was scared something bad was going to happen. It turned out she just bit him really hard and it worked! The book was odd because some of the stuff just didn’t make any sense to me like why they snuck out of the house so may times. And when the father didn’t want to get out of jail it made no sense because he could have gotten bailed out!
Not only did Andre’s mother have communications issues with Cal but also with her own son. Her son didn’t even want to tell his mother that he was sick, let alone homosexual, even though Cal insisted. It is clear that Andre’s mother was not accepting of her son’s sexuality. She was narrow-minded and did not want to accept that her son was homosexual. In the story, Cal told of how Andre became down, and when he asked what was bothering him, he would just say he was homesick.
I feel useless and lonely. My parents realize they have no reason to keep working hard if I am not going to go to college. My parents soon understood that they had not been treating me like on of their children. They just wanted me to go further than they did and did not know how to express that to me. My parents try and buy me things and carenow to make up for all these lost years but my heart has turned cold.
Elie’s father was not in favor of allowing Elie to study Jewish mysticism and had refused to be his mentor. “Your too young for that. Maimonides tells us that one must be thirty before venturing into the world of mysticism. You must first study the basic subjects, those you are able to understand.” (Wiesel 4) Elie was disappointed, but out of respect towards his father he absorbed the situation for what it was. When the two had first arrived at Auschwitz, his father begins to cry.
Some would think that they will miss their families and relationships and most of all, love. But the people in Utopia have never experienced any of these. They were brought up in conditioning centers and feel that parents and family are primitive. The mere sound of the word annoys them. Monogamy is discouraged by the utopian society and considered improper “Four months of Henry Foster, without having another man…why, he’d be furious if he knew…” This restrains people from getting too emotionally involved and putting their loved one’s needs before the society’s needs.
