I think Calpurnia is a better mother figure than Aunt Alexandra for these reasons; First, because Cal always takes good care of the children. When the sick dog was putting them in danger, she made sure they were in their house and were safe out of the way. Another example of Cal taking care of the kids is when she took them to church with her. Before taking them to church, she bathed Scout and made sure she looked her best because she “didn’t want anyone sayin’ I don’t look after my children” (Lee157). Another reason I think Calpurnia is a better mother figure is because she knows the kids so well. She has been with the family for so long, that she knows their family history. When Aunt Alexandra tells Atticus that he should consider letting
California is the most expensive and the beautiful cities of the world. It is the one of the populous states of the USA. California is very beautiful and attractive for the tourist. Because the state of California contains almost all types of weather conditions in different parts of the State. As far as the California is beautiful but is also one of the expensive States of the USA. Because the California is situated near the Pacific Cost due to which the tourist and the peoples all arounds the worlds come to see the Natural scenes and different types of Tourist sites in the State. If someone wants to his vacations memorable then he visits the city of dream California. Because California is one of the expensive
Calpurnia was the Finch’s African- american housekeeper. She played a huge role in the parenting of both Scout and Jem because Atticus was an only father. Calpurnia helped Scout become more ladylike at the end of the novel by teaching her proper manners and edict. Scout is a hardcore
Calpurnia is a much more positive caregiver, as she is a strict disciplinarian, but to a lesser degree than Aunt Alexandra. Likewise she is not a hypocrite; she could comment on the ways of white people because she has been raised in a white environment.
As I am reading this story, I questioned whether Calipurnia or Aunt Alexandra is a better mom. I think Calipurnia is a better mom for many different reasons. She puts more time into the kids than Aunt Alexandra, and she genuinely cares for the kids and wants to keep them safe. To start off with, Calipurnia puts a lot more time into the kids than Aunt Alexandra does. On many occasions Calipurnia has made things for Scout and Jem to eat or drink like a mother would. For example, she said, “she did give Jem a hot biscuit-and-butter which he tore in half and shared with me” (Lee 137). This shows that not only would Calipurnia make their every meal, but she would sometimes give the kids some snacks while she was cooking in the kitchen too. In addition, Scout said that, “We skulked around the kitchen until Calipurnia threw us out” (Lee 137).
In the 6th grade, most of the Jewish students at Kenter Canyon Elementary were forced to participate in a time honored tradition called Cotillion. It was held at University Synagogue on Sunset Blvd in Brentwood. Joining us were other unfortunates from nearby grammar schools whose parents (mothers) felt it this, shall we say “tradition,” was one of the important steps needed in to assure that we would become loyal Americans and efficacious adults. The other ‘musts’ were Bar Mitzvahs (Bot Mitzvahs were voluntary for girls), college degrees, standing under a chuppah, and providing grandchildren. Preferably in that order.
Caligula was born on August 31, 12 AD. His father's name was Germanicus and his mother is Agrippa. Caligula was known as “little boots” because his mother dressed him in the uniform of a Roman legionaire and they called him that. Caligula was married to Junia Claudilla, Livia Orestilla, Lollia Paulina, and Caesonia. His child's name was Julia Drusilla. He died on 24 of January 41 AD in Rome.
In To Kill a Mockingbird, Calpurnia is the maid to the Finch family. Harper Lee uses her as a sort of mother figure to the children, but she is also used as a window into how oppression has shaped the small town. She is not fully touched upon in the story and is largely considered a minor character, yet she has a profound impact on not the main character Scout and the city of Maycomb.
I think Calpurnia is a better mother figure than Aunt Alexandra for many reasons. One reason I think Calpurnia is a better mother figure is that she does not treat the Jem and Scout differently. In the early 1930s African Americans were not treated as fair as Whites. I say that because in the book Calpurnia is an African American woman and the Finch family are white Americans. So she is does not treat Jem and Scout like royalty she treats them in a meaner more strict way. Even tho back in the day whites had held the authority figure over blacks even white children, but that does not stop Calpurnia from being the authority figure. Throughout the book she gave punishments to Scout and Jem. She made Scout sit in the kitchen and eat all by herself
R- Calpurnia is a better mother figure because she is caring toward Scout and Jem.
Towards Jem, we see instances in Calpurnia in which she almost seems soft. For example, after Jem wrecks Mrs. Dubose’s camellia, and the kids were skulking around, Calpurnia knew Jem was upset, and gave him a hot biscuit-and-butter. One may argue this is the beginning of a change in Calpurnia, but we may look at it as Cal just being a mom. One can refute the argument of change that Scout is just beginning to see the good side of her and why Cal does what she does. She has already gone through the phases with her own children, and know how it is herself growing up. In the middle of To Kill a Mockingbird, Jem is starting to grow up and is becoming a teenager. This is evident by Scout’s overwhelming frustration with Jem in the quote, “His maddening superiority was unbearable these days. He didn’t want to do anything but read and go off by himself.” (Lee 184) Calpurnia, being the experienced mother/caregiver she is, had seen that, and started giving Jem his space, and started calling him “Mister Jem”. Scout realizes Calpurnia is not as bad as she once thought. Scout realizes Calpurnia can be nice when given the chance.
After reading chapters four through nine I can tell that Atticus is a good parent and respects others very much. He treats Calpurnia very kindly and is grateful for her. Atticus helps her when she needs it like he drove her back to her house because she thinks it will be warmer at her own house. Atticus agrees to defend Tom Robinson because Calpurnia knows his family and wants to help. He listened to Calpurnia even though he was defending a African American. He still wanted to help Calpurnia defend him. He knew he would be treated badly by the city but he didn’t care. She also helps him take care of the kids and she acts like a mother figure in the house. Calpurnia was normally at the house during the day and Atticus was there at night. Atticus
Second of all, I will be evaluating whether Calpurnia or Aunt Alexandra is a better motherly figure for the two children. To start, Calpurnia is a good motherly figure. Firstly, she took the children to church on Sunday when Atticus was not home to do so. In the reading it says, “How’d you and Mister Jem like to come to church with me tomorrow?” (Lee 156). Calpurnia did not only take them to church, but took them to an African American church, giving the children a new perspective on how life for some people is, teaching them both the valuable lesson of walking in somebody else’s shoes which is also a major theme in the book. Secondly, Scout found Calpurnia to be good company when Jem decided to act independent and not spend time with her
With a completely different relationship with her husband, Calpurnia’s unending care and worry for her husband proves to be vital to the development of the story. Following the norm brought about by her time, Calpurnia was dominated by her husband, Caesar,
