The short story “Mother” concerns Elizabeth Willard, the mother of George Willard, Winesburg’s newsboy. She had wasted her life by not fulfilling any of her dreams and hopes George can grow up to do what she could not. One day, while walking through the hallways of the Old Willard House, the family hotel, Elizabeth eavesdrops on her husband, Tom, as he talks to George about his purpose in life. In a subtle case of irony, Tom advises George to make financial success his number one priority despite himself being rather lazy and unsuccessful. Horrified by what she has witnessed, Elizabeth attempts to murder Tom fearing their son could potentially value materialistic possessions over anything else.
Even though they aren 't a married couple, people mistake them to be engaged due to their interactions together, which is really dynamic and in sync. Brad is considered a rounded character.

Brad also realizes that he is not so different from his father, who he doesn 't get along with when his father tells him that marriage and kids was the worst decision he’s made in his life. Towards the end of the movie, Brad decides he is okay with making changes in his life, which meant having kids and getting married.
However they both confront their carers as they help them through their lives. Romeo has Friar Lawrence and Juliet has the Nurse. Each child has to turn to their carers as their parents are unable to help them, but still both Romeo and Juliet commit suicide for each other’s love. This may have been caused due to inadequate parenting as Juliet’s parents are very distant and do not communicate as well as the Nurse and Juliet, whereas Romeo’s parents struggle to communicate with him; this is shown when they ask Benvolio Romeo’s cousin to find out what is bothering Romeo. Lord Capulet is the father of Juliet; he is a very domineering character who cannot control his actions fully.

(Williams 1277). Tom wants to leave so desperately that he "...paid [his Merchant Marine] dues this month, instead of the light bill" (Williams 1295). Tom would rather think of himself and let his mother and sister sit in the dark, alone, than take responsibility for his family. Tom says he is "...tired of the movies" (Williams 1294) meaning that he is ready for his own adventures. He "...[retires] to a cabinet of the washroom to work on poems when business [is] slack in the warehouse" (Williams 1289) By doing this, Tom is looking for yet another escape from the reality of working at a job he hates.
He can’t stand his factory job, the responsibility of being the man or being treated like a child by his mother. Tom decides to follow in his father’s footsteps and leave the family. It seems as if Tom thinks that running away from his problems will make them go away but things didn’t turn out that way. Although the play was written many years ago, young adults in this day and age can relate to Tom and his actions. The main theme in the play is escape.
I do not think Romeo and Juliet are close to their parents, nor do I think their parents know them very well. At the beginning of the play, when Romeo is moping over Rosaline, his father is worried about him but he actually does nothing about it. Juliet's parents are nasty to her, especially her father, who is particularly horrible when she says she wants to marry for love. He tells her that he has lined up a suitable husband, meaning a wealthy one, and that is that. If she doesn't marry Paris (that's his name) she will be thrown out of the house, to fend for herself.
