Pride And Honor

Pride And Honor

Parents have always wanted what was best for their children. It is only natural for them to want to give their children a good life, but sometimes, they do not realize what hatred their children are building for them because of so much pressure. The root of so much pressure is commonly set back to those of the parents past. If the parent had not accomplished something in their childhood, they would try to enforce it on their children. In Amy Tan?s novel ?The Joy Luck Club?, four mothers use such tactics to gain things they never could have: honor, pride, and respect. (5/103)
Honor has been a significant value among Asian cultures. Children have been strictly raised to honor their elders, and no matter how far off track the children may wander, those same values will still remain. For example, one-day An-meis mother decided to stay at this house where she was invited. Sadly enough though, she was raped. She ended up pregnant and An-mei?s grandmother wouldnt accept her at home. She was seen as if she was dishonorable, and because of her misfortune, she would bring the rest of her family?s honor down
