Troy?s relationship with his father was one, which produced much tension, and had a strong influence on Troy?s relationships with his loved ones as an adult. He had very little respect for his father because his father did not, in Troy?s mind, make his family a priority. At an early age, Troy?s father beat him ?like there was no tomorrow? because he caught Troy getting ?cozy? with a girl (549; I,4).
Fences presents many aspect of life that we experience day to day basis. Respect appears to be one of the key aspect of Fences. Troy wants respect from his family because he is the man of the house while acting insensitive and uncaring to his wife, Rose, his brother, Gabriel and his son, Cory. Troy had an abusive father, he never like him. Troy run away from his house to be on his own at a very young age because he never receive the love and respect he desires from his family, so he come around to repeat what his father had done because of the failure to see that the time had changed around him.
Firstly, his parents divorced in 1990. He was depressed, but as the eldest son, he learnt to be independent and hide his feeling from others, which later turned out to have high self management skills. The relationship with mothers and fathers are equally important in building attachment. However, divorce of parents made him blaming his parents, which made him lose all trust of his parents and the opinions from them (Lee, 2007). On the other hand, his ego personality had led to the lack of friendship so no one knew his plans and could not stop him.
Up to stanza five, Patten describes how he pushed away anyone who wanted to love him and how he always thought that marriage would end in divorce. He has very low self-esteem. He would rather not be loved at all than be love by someone, only then to be rejected by them. However, in stanza six, we find out that he has completely turned his life around and has found someone to love. In contrast, Harrison writes about how loving his parents were and how his father still loved his deceased mother and did things he would have done if she were still alive.
For one you don’t trust them to do the right thing you are always looking over their shoulder and questioning their every move. Another reason that it’s hard to give help is because they don’t trust you and their willpower is obsolete. You have to know there are draw backs to getting clean, and Sonny’s older brother realized this because he battled with his self whether he should search Sonny’s room or not while he was there alone. You realize at some point that you can only help someone to a certain point then you have to give them room to see if they will make the right decision, you have to pray that they will make the right choice and walk away. Works Cited Baldwin, James.
While both of them are true, the main conflict of this story is about understanding one another. When Sonny was a teenager, his brother wanted Sonny to stay with his wife’s family and go to school like every other normal kid. Sonny’s brother believed that education is t... ... middle of paper ... ...t if he opens up to Sonny he would have to open up to himself. And that was scary to him. Only his personal pain over the loss of his beloved daughter makes him understand Sonny’s sorrow.
Coley somewhat blames his wife for this. Coley put his family in great danger with the bills not being paid and him putting off jobs for something he thinks will become his gold mine and turns out not to. Throughout the episode I felt a great deal of sadness for the children that had to be involved in his mess of an addiction. Each child was suffering in their own way because he refused to quit crystal meth and would come home late at night therefore spending no time with his family. I think the child that was affected the greatest was his son.
His brother, Tony was a drug dealer who wish he could go back in time and make the right decisions and he wanted Wes to be different than him. He didn’t want his brother to end up like him and even after he tried everything to keep Wes away from drugs, nothing worked and he gave up. As you can see, both families are very different, Wes (the author) has a family who wants him to have a bright future. Most importantly, a family who responds fast because right after his mother saw him falling down the wrong hill she didn’t hesitate to do something about it. The other Wes isn’t as lucky, as I believe since his mother already had so much pressure over keeping her job and her son Tony being involved in drugs.
Additionally, this father’s older son had recently moved out of the house without explanation or information of his whereabouts. The father attributed his gray hair to those two incidents. There was also a father whose daughter had been on drugs and in trouble with the law and he said dealing with her situation was the first time he had ever been depressed. Of course becoming a single parent is a huge responsibility that these men weren’t preparing all life to become so like with any unexpected responsibility comes doubt and fear. One of the father’s stated that he felt overwhelmed when he first realized he would be parenting two children alone, yet the children themselves provided the motivation needed to overcome the
He wants to become a part of an ordinary society and to move forward; however, his deficiency of self-esteem and knowledge held him back from progressing. He used to live with his mother and stepfather in upstate New York, but he had some serious issues with them that had an impact on him to become who he is. He never seems to have had a proper family who inspired him to become better in life. For example, his parents weren't convenient role models for Bone because they drank plenty of alcohol, revealed marriage issues, and didn't seem to be involved in pushing him forward because they relinquished him. Worst of all, his step-father harassed him since he was little and he was incapable of expressing himself about the harassment to his mother.
