Although some parents were against evacuation, other parents were keen to send their children away, as it would keep them out of harms way. When their children had been evacuated this gave parents at home (who were at home because they had to look after their children) chance to be involved in the war effort. It was natural for parents to be concerned about their children. They worried about things like "where would they go?" "Would they be safe?"
This comes to show that they are all afraid of how the father will disapprove of how Luna is. This story represents a family who have difficulty in a person about accepting transgender children. The support of a family is needed in order to let Luna be free and express herself. The parents are very important in damaging the relationship of both Liam/Luna and Regan. Regan is not confident enough to tell her parents about the situation and cannot go to anyone to support her.
They wanted to spare their children and those who knew little about the holocaust from listening to their terrible stories.” In the efforts to save people from having to hear about the gruesome past, the survivors also lacked the resources to mentally recovery from the tragedy. People like Helen’s mother grew tired of the stories she’d try to tell to have her mother understand what happened. Her mother once said “I cannot understand why you always come back with those old stories. Forget those ties and what has happened. Nobody wants to hear or talk about this anymore.” In a way, I feel that Helen’s mother did not mean to sound as brutal as she did to Helen, but rather tried to tell Helen that life has to continue on and she cannot dwell on the pain of the
There is no reason they should give birth to children, if they don’t want them or if they have to care about them. People should not marry each other if they don’t want to, but if they marry each other and then after 2 or 3 children they want to divorce, that is stupid, it will not work. I am not saying people cannot divorce; they can, but not this way. Some kids can’t handle these family problems. I know I was strong and I handled it, but still I was about to kill myself and I didn’t, because I was thinking about my sisters and my father.
When children request something to their parents, parents could not afford to say the word ‘no’ as they would feel guilty because they have not been providing their children quality time. Parents are then obliged to say ‘yes’ to most of the favor asked by their children. The way you address it suggests that it is the parents’ duty to spend more time with their children--but by what means? It is clearly not the parent's’ liability that their children turns out to be what they are today. At the same time, it could be acknowledged that it is a disadvantage for both parents and children not to spend time together.
The first wave of evacuation in Britain took place on September 1st 1939. Britain evacuated children from the major cities because of long term, short term and spark causes leading up to 1st September 1939. It was necessary to evacuate children as a priority because they were considered the country’s future, as were pregnant women. It was necessary to spread the population out towards the countryside so that the people living there could do their part in the war; by looking after evacuees. The fear of bombing in the large cities was very high, due to past events such as Guernica, where bombing took place in 1937 during the Spanish civil war.
Mothers didn't want their kids to go away. They said surely if a war came it would be better for families to stick together and not go breaking up their homes. But the government new that if they let the children stay in the city's with their mothers then they couldn't release mothers for war work. Which would mean there would not be enough workers to help the war. Also if there was lots of damage to city's and there was lots of
The Decision of the British Government to Evacuate Children During World War II There were many reasons why on the third of September 1939, the British government put into motion the largest mass-movement of people in the country's history; moving nearly three million people from towns and cities to the countryside. These reasons can be categorised into three main groups; military reasons (the legacy of World War One, keeping soldiers well equipped, protecting the future fighting force, requisition of buildings), political reasons (keeping support for the government, government's duty to protects its people, maintaining stability) and economic reasons (freeing up human resources). The government felt that if an enemy bombardment on major cities were to happen, it would undoubtedly come from the air. This was because the British government believed that their navy was far superior to that of Germany, and a sea-bourn invasion would be impossible. Advances in technology from the First World War, especially in aircrafts, made massive bombardments of major cities possible.
Parents lose their children as a consequence of their wrong decision of sending their children to the United States, and then they have nothing to do, unless regretting. Even teenager abandoned by their parents, and taking their own decision to cross the border realizes that their temptation of getting a better life actually brings more frustration in their life because the path is very tough and most of the time impossible. Throughout the movie the logic, the evidence, and the reality she represents helps her to accomplish logos, ethos, and pathos which makes her argument strong. So it is obvious to say that Rebecca Cammisa’s argument the unaccompanied parents should not allow their unaccompanied children to cross the border is effective and convincing.
They also, develop resentment towards one of the parents and in some cases they resent them both because they do not know who to blame. The children are hurt and confused, they feel torn between both parents and they are overwhelmed with the thoughts of who will care for them. Having divorced parents can have a positive effect if the parents agree to make the children their top priority even though they are separating. The children must be reassured that they are loved by both parents and that nothing is going to change as for as their activities except for the fact that they will have two homes instead of one. The trauma for children who face divorce is magnified because they do not know how to handle the unexpected.
