How he acted when we were young affected how I acted and what I did. Our mom never let us have play dates because we lived so far out of town, so we were each other’s best friend for thirteen years until he got his license. Since he was the only person I could play with I learned everything from him. We both ignored our older sister Amanda since she was rude and selfish. He didn’t like our little sister Lainey since she was always crying which caused me not to like her either.
The next days were chaos. My family was arguing all of the time over if they should denounce Refugio to the authorities. Most of my uncles and aunts agreed that they should, they believed that it would be the only way for him to learn from his mistakes and change his immature behavior. However, my grandma said that she would rather prefer to be killed too than seeing her son spend his years in prison. Therefore, we continued with the funeral arrangements and justice was never made for my grandpa.
He even got bolder about it and soon went as often as he liked" (p. 18). I believe that separated parents can really affect so badly a family; and like in many cases, this happened in Essie Mae's. I think George Lee, who was her eight year old uncle, was one of the most negative persons during her childhood. This boy, who was supposed to take care of Essie Mae and the other kids, was a total bad model for her and that's also why she hated him. Many times this kid did hit them for any reason and he never cared about them.
If I must speak the upright truth, it never bothered me too many that my mother was not around, she was a mad woman to say the least, she was never fain with anything, I remember her much being stubborn, and aloof. Never have I felt her to be anything like a mother. Although, the fighting had stopped, my father became ill, not with such anything of a disease, I prefer to believe that he was heartbroken. He expected my mother to make her voyage back home, whilst I believed she was skulking, or rather found herself a much new suitable life or family. My older brethren had dothed me to go pitch for my mother, and for that I had laughed in his face.
Uncle Keith who is my moms brother loves to cook, so he preps our Easter meal. Once my sister and I eat around one we say our goodbyes and head to my dads. Growing up overtime, I started to not get a long with my dad and he just always put me in a horrible mood. During the three year that were like this and the ones to come, I would walk into the house and sit on a couch or chair and watch television. Sometimes my sister and I would eat it all depended on how much we ate at my uncles.
My sister opened the door for them and they asked us our names, and said my dad had been arrested for stealing cable. I argued with them, we didn’t have cable, and my 6 year old brain couldn’t understand what else he would be doing. He was at work and he said he’d be back, he had promised and we never broke our promises. By then Tashwana’s parents had been brought over to get her, and they kept saying it was going to be okay and it would all be over soon, but I didn’t understand, why they were taking me, why couldn’t I just stay home and wait for my
When she started to look for me and couldn’t find me she got scared, then all my uncles noticed and so they started to help her. She said that after looking for about an hour I came out from that house like nothing had happened. Then on June 20, 1991 my little sister was born. My mom said that when my little sister was born I became very responsible and helpful. She also said that I was very calm and happy all the time.
His parents only showed him hatred and showed him what they both didn’t want him. He tried to break that chain with his family but he always remembered his parents. He was always having flashbacks to his childhood. Despite all the trouble that his parents put him through, he still had love for them both. His mother never came back for him and his siblings but he did not despite her regardless of her abandonment.
He couldn’t talk to his daughter at that time because of different time zones. My stepmom made it almost impossible for my dad to interact with his daughter. She didn’t want him to be apart of her or her daughter 's life. I didn’t see how this was fair, I was getting very frustrated with her. Once he got back from deployment he called me very often seeing how I was feeling about this whole situation.
What I experienced before trains me how to react in certain situations. When he grew up gradually, my brother was becoming naughty and often acted in a way that my parents could not bear. My parents sometimes were unable to bear my brother’s misconduct so they criticize him loudly and impatiently. I didn’t agree with what my mom has done with my brother and thought that was the nature of a kid, telling my mom to be patient. I was always thinking that parents’ impatience would hurt my brother’s heart and even ruin his self-esteem.
