Family traditions, values and treasures are priceless; they are one of a kind and cannot be replaced. In Alice Walker’s short story, “Everyday Use”, the narrator, Mama, believes that the everyday use of her family items is perfectly acceptable. Her eldest daughter, Dee, believes that the items should be preserved. Preserving family treasures and passing them down from generation to generation are key to keeping them alive; however, it can be argued that passing on the skills to make your own family trinkets and treasures is more important. Why is it important to keep the skill?
When parents educate their children, it does not mean that they must beat them. Abusing can hurt someone’s feeling and it will stay forever as a trauma.

The main source was from her mother, Lucy. She did not believe in therapists, psychologists and thought the concept was stupid. Cheyenne could have benefited from grief consoling, but that option was never available to her. In addition to that reason for not seeking professional help, Lucy was mindful of Cheyenne’s future career. Cheyenne wants to work in the criminal justice or national defense field where mental health is vital; Lucy didn’t want any treatment of Cheyenne’s mental health to be on her record for that reason.
Walker is perfectly capable of “chopping wood” and we understand that her father would be “proud of the” way she has matured, showing that though she may miss her father, she is an independent women, and does not necessarily need a man in her life... ... middle of paper ... ... creates a certainty of the phrase, proving that one of her actions were sure to have caused serious pain to her father. Because of this, it is clear that Walker was remorseful for what she had done. Throughout these six poems the relationship between parent and child are all expressed in unique ways. While ‘Daddy’ by Sylvia Plath displays the hatred towards her father through the use of metaphors, the other five poems examined all show strong bonds between the parent and the child, though it may not seem so all the time. All these poets express their themes through the use of mood and tone, structure, language, literary devices (such as metaphors, similes, alliteration) and through the use of polysemous words or phrases.
Maybe Ajay 's mother should not ask what the point of raising him is, but instead how they should go about raising him. Perhaps there is no real "right" way to raise a child, especially in such unpredictable circumstances, but there has to be a better way so that children like him do not spend their adulthoods healing from their childhoods. The novel demonstrates that family life is not perfect, and it was never meant to be. A family is a group of unique, complex individuals (who may or may not even get along) who find themselves bound together. While we may leave our families, our experience with them never leaves us; we carry that with us through the rest of our lives.
