I think that Steven takes out most of his anger on his mom because I think that he feels like his dad didn't really do anything except for not tell Steven about Jeffery. And I think that Steven feels more comfortable yelling at his mom because if he probably yelled at his dad he would probably get in a little bit of trouble. Also because his mom has done a lot more "bad" things to Steven than his dad.
Moms usually are the ones that take care of the kids, so the kids might have more connection with the mother. Since the kids have more connection with the mother, they might not feel comfortable by taking it out all on the dad. So, Steven represents the kids. The mom seems to handle things better. steven and his dad haven't been talking for a while. It would probably be awkward if Steven took it all out on his dad.
WhenSteven lays all of his ange on his mom I think he did that for two reasons. One because he think that his mom is more loyale right now since his dad just lied to him about the phone calles. Two because he might think that his mom will go softer because she just found out that her son had cancer.
I think that Steven takes it out on his mom because he is mad. He is mad because she left him at his house with his dad but Steven didn't really know what was happening. Also, he felt left out like everyone knew what was wrong with Jeffy except for him. Another reason why is because he doesn't know what to do with his feelings so he's taking it out on his mom.
I think you did a great job with using examples from the book to help you with your answer. I agree that he hasn't really been with his mom a lot so he just takes it out on her.
I think that Steven is taking out pretty much all of his anger and sorrow out on his mother because really he can't take it out on anyone eps that would listen to him or just acknewlodge him. He definatly can't get mad at Jeffery and his dad wouldn't even talk to him. His mom is the only one out of the two parents who really cares about how Steven feels about this whole situation.
Good job Daisy I total agree. He also had kept all his anger up inside himand then he expolded. That why i think steven got so mad at his mom.
I think the main reason Steven takes most of his anger out on his mother is because he thinks it's her fault for not communicating with him. Steven could also feel frustration or think it was somehow his fault or needed to assign blame. This is why I think he took his anger out on his mom.
Why does Steven take anger out on his mother.Well he cant be mean to Jeffrey any more so he has to take it on some one which is his mother. Also why he takes his sorrow out on his mother because he needs to be comforted about Jeffreys illness.
Why I think Steven takes the majority of anger and sorrow on his Mom is to show that he's not getting any attention. Steven's brother Jeffery has leukemia and his Mom isn't spending any time with him. She's focusing a lot of attention on Jeffery. Another thing is that his Mom never believes him. He feels she only believes his brother. For example, Jeffery uses Steven's drumsticks to make food. After Steven finds out, he tells his Mom. His Mom doesn't believe him. Steven feels sorrow and anger.
I think that Steven takes most of his anger/sorrow out on his mother because in a children's life I think that mothers more so then fathers are a big part of the children's life. I also think that Steven takes it out on his mom because she was the one with Jeffrey and she now's all the details on what happened. I think that Steven also took it out on Mom because he was a little frustrated with his dad for not telling him that his mother had called every night. Sometimes, we have to put ourselves in other people's shoes;If I was Steven, I wouldn't know what to do: My little brother has ALL, my mom has been calling each night and I didn't know about it,and my mother just came home and it's a mad house, yelling,screaming,&disagreement. I have never had a sibling(knock-on-wood)that has been severally ill, or broken bones so I might take it the same way Steven did,cry and put an optimistic spin on everything, while at the same time being nice to brothers
Steven takes his anger out on his mom because he feels that he needs to blame someone about all that is happening to him so hetakes it out on his mom because she is the one that just disappeared with jeffery.
I think that you are totally right. In all his mom is the one who dissapeared with Jeffrey. But, she did dissapear with him for a good reason. She also does'nt deserve to be blamed.
Well if I were Steven I would either keep it inside or take it on my mom. You can't take it out on Jeffrey because he's the one suffering I just wouldn't because in my family my dad is en charge. So knowing Stevens egocentric personality and he wont just think of it from everyone elses prospective. He'll blame someone else so i can understand why he picked mom because she probably understand how he is thinking.
I think Steven takes his anger and sadness out on his mother becaus he needs an outlet. He can't yell at Jeffy, his dad won't respond, and nobody else knows, so he can't just keep it bottled up. Or maybe thats why. He keeps his feelings bottled up for a week and now hes exploding to his mom. For example he didn't even tell his " one true friend. "
I think he takes his another and sorrow or on his mother because he doesn't want to take it out on Jeffery. He just yells at his mother because who else is there to take it out on. If my little brother was to go through that pain, I wouldn't express my anger against him.
I think Steven takes all his anger out on his mom because he feels that sense his mom was taking care of Jeffrey and Jeffery got leukemia, Steven thinks its kind of his moms fault even though leukemia is a thing that anyone can get it no matter how healthy they are.
i think this is because the mother is usally teh most understanding in the family. For example if u were to be hurt and the mom is home u would naturaly go to her. in this case steven emotions were just everywere and couldent controll them anymore and started to cry. there for the mother started to comefort him and calm him down likesteven did to jeffy. its a commen fact to most people
I think that Steven takes the majority ouf his anger and sorrow ot on his mother because his mother was the parent that went to Philly with Jeffery. She was also the one that allowed the docters to to all of those tests, and Steven doesn't get that Jeffery would probably already be dead if it weren't for those tests.
I think that the reason Steven takes his anger out on him mother is because he was really mad about the fact that his mother told his dad to tell steven what was going on so this situation wouldn't happen but when Steven got really mad he didn't want to face his father so Steven went up and directly blamed most of it on his mother.
Well..... I think that Steven took all his anger out on his mom because he was keeping all of this anger in sind of him. Steven was very anger and he let all of his anger out on his mom. He was alos a little mad at him because he didn't call him when she was at the hospital. Also he was mad that she suggested that they call his school because Steven didn't want the world to know that his little brother had cancer. That is why I think Steven all his anger out on his mom while they where talking about Jeffery, Haddlebury
Great job hadley! I like how you used examples from the book to help you with the paragraph. I think you did a great job with that.
I think Steven takes his anger out on his mom because he hasnt seen her for a while. Also, because he hasn't known about what happened to jeffrey, but his mom has known the whole time. I think that maybe Steven feels jealous. This is because sense Jeffrey is young, Steven's mom might pay attention to him more. Steven may get mad ny this.
I think the reason he took all of anger out on his mom is because for the past week his dad was a zombie. Since his dad didn't tell Steven about whart had happened to Jeffery he thought it was his mom's fault. I think another reason why he was anger is because his little baby brother was sick with canser.
Well..... sometimes when you are sad you get so sad and you are just keeping it inside you and trying to think that you are ok. Then you burst and you blame all your anger at the closest person to you or the one whose made you a little angry. Steven's mom was in Philadelphia all week with Jeffery and she never called. That is what Steven thought and that made him angry. But she did call every night and talked to his dad and is dad never told him. Also Steven got really mad when she said that she could call his school so his teachers would know, but he didn't want anyone else to know that his little brother had cancer. So he got mad a his mom because she made the suggestion to tell Steven's teachers. That is why I think that Steven got so mad at his mom when the told him about Jeffery.
