Matthew Fox, a supporting character in The Adoration of Jenna Fox makes an impacting decision through his motivation of needing to save his daughter's life. To demonstrate, in the book The Adoration of Jenna Fox, when Jenna was questioning her parent's actions Claire states, "'We did what any parent would do. We saved you,'"(Pearson 128). In other words, Claire and Matthew used their strong parental instincts to save the life of their only child, Jenna. This describes his motivation that leads Matthew to do what he did in saving his precious daughter -- the incentive to save someone whom he cares greatly about.
She talked about the great things they would bond over and all the things the mother would do for their children. However, 62.4% of children will never see this. Not because their vision is impaired, but their mothers decided a different life for themselves that did not include them. The mothers selfish act lead to lifelong effects on their child that surpass just not knowing who their mother is. Sandra Maria Esteves opened up the world of how great a mother is, but the world of those 62.4% of children is a dark and deep one with negative psychological effects.
She also knew how dangerous it would be to her children’s future to raise them in a style that would leave them open to falling short of the opportunities they would start with due to her own, and her parents’, successes and she resolved not to allow this to happen on her watch (22). Although she has repeatedly, and sometimes correctly, been criticized for her parenting style, Amy Chua demonstrates throughout her book a definitively visible result and a love, though sometimes misconstrued, that is fully evident in all the dedication she has given to her daughters' development into outstanding people. Through exhibiting confidence in what her girls can achieve, maintaining great expectations of what they will accomplish, and most importantly devoting as much time as possible to directly raising the girls to be their best, Amy has shown that great love, coupled with great tenacity, given in a “Chinese mother” style, proved to make an enduring mark on her children’s development. For the nature of a child’s psyche, strength is the assumption. This was basically how Chua classified one of the primary differences of “Chinese mother” parenting from Western styles (52).
The protective nature that parents have for their children is one of the most important traits that all parents need to have to raise their child well. However, even too much of a good thing can be poison. This is especially true for the characters in both the novel Mister Pip, by Lloyd Jones, and the short story Saturday Climbing, by W.D Valgardson. In Mister Pip, Delores loves her daughter, Matilda, and is extremely protective of her, so when Matilda starts to become pulled towards the world that Mr. Watts presents through the book Great Expectations, Delores takes action in the fear of losing her daughter to another world, but this overprotectiveness results in terrible consequences. Similarly, in Saturday Climbing, Barry is extremely protective of his daughter, Moira, and is afraid of letting her to have too much responsibility.
M'lynn showed how she loved her daughter unconditionally in two ways; first, M'lynn risked her own life to help save Shelby's, and second she stayed by Shelby's side when no one else would. M'lynn risked her own life when she decided that she would give up her kidney for Shelby, “But I'm lucky. I don't have to wait anymore. Mama's going to give me one of her kidneys” (58). M'lynn showed how much she loved her daughter and wanted to save her even if it meant dangerous surgery.“[Shelby] They basically have to saw her in half to get the kidney.

If she were to “drown”, then she would spare her family the scandal that would accompany a suicide. In conclusion, I believe that Mademoiselle Reisz played a huge role in Edna’s personal awakening. Edna always looked up to Madame Reisz and she always wanted her life. She saw that Madame Reisz was living the life she wanted to live and she also wanted that for herself. Edna realizes that she didn't want her life to be traditional, but she realizes it too late to do something about it.
The bond between a parent and child is one of the strongest emotional connections a human can hope to experience; it transcends race, colour, creed, religion, and every other possible roadblock in its way. However, what a parent believes is best for their child may in fact harm them and cause unforeseen detriments to the child’s health and wellbeing. Author and mother Amy Webb claims she is a better parent for recording everything her daughter does and saving the data to a spreadsheet. Like Webb I agree surveying and recording everything her daughter does brings her and her daughter closer together, however, I disagree with her claim that she is a better parent because she is harming her daughter by not allowing her to breathe or have space. In her article "I Measure Every Single Thing My Child Does," published to Slate Magazine on 9 July, 2013, author and mother Amy Webb argues she is a better parent for keeping track and recording everything her child does.
I was torn by Harry’s negative thoughts. Harry (2010) states, “You are beautiful, but if you’re going to hang around and give me trouble, I’d rather you died (p. 4). In addition, she did not see her daughter for the first 24 hours! A mother’s love for her daughter should always be unconditional. Riding along Harry’s roller coaster of emotions, I was sad and mad at first but then I became understanding of her feelings.
“On the other hand, parents’ love for their children, the responsibility they feel for their children’s life and future, and their sensitivity to their best interests, makes them the best surrogates for recognizing the pediatric patients’ best interests” (Parsapoor, A., Parsapoor, M., Rezaei, N., & Asghari, F., 2014). However, in this case Tiffany’s mother may not be considering Tiffany’s best interest and, in doing so, is severely jeopardizing Tiffany’s health. Tiffany’s mother has the right to decide what food she buys and whether or not to encourage physical activity, yet that decision directly affects Tiffany’s
