Back in the day when I was very little, I remember that my dad used to take care of me. He would never let me run around the house when glass could off break and hurt me. As I kept growing up my father started to give more freedom but also gave me more responsibilities; like he wanted me to do the chores of the house, not all of them but some. I knew they were not mine to do but I still help. When I went off to college and I had to do all by myself, I realize that my father did good on making me do my laundry, chores and etc., when I was young. Besides I knew that I had to do my chores for me to go out with friends. Although I had this kind of responsibilities at a young age I can say that it helped in life. But because some parents overprotective their children and they are not exposing to real life, children might not know how to function in society when their parents die.
In the story of “A Rose For Emily” by William Faulkner. Mister Grierson, Emily’s father seems to control everything that went around of Emily. He was a controlling figure to her. As the narrator was telling us the story I notice in few lines things that her father used to do to keep her home. Actions like he would scare guys away interested on Emily. He did this stuff because he wanted her to stay home and take care of the house. Where to mine point of view he would have more control over her actions and would not let her out of the house.
In my perspective I think that people who do not go out as often as normal people do, might develop some kind of mental disease because of the isolation.

This image is the one described by Faulkner in the story “a tableau; Miss Emily a slender figure in white in the background, her father a spraddled silhouette in the foreground, his back to her and clutching a horse whip.” The description of the paint showed us the type of the parent he was to Emily. By the way he was dress and the horse whip, is easy to infer that Emily could have been beaten up by her dad because he liked to input authority in his house.
Because of Mister Grierson actions of “driving away Emily’s suitors so he could keep her for housekeeping services”( Strandberg 1), and the fact of him beating her up, “ruined Emily’s chances for a normal life and thereby grossly deformed her personality”( Strandberg 1). Her father was definitely the cause of Miss Emily psychological problems that somehow seemed to get worse after he died.
Mister Grierson miserably dies. When he dies Emily keeps her body at the house for three days until she broke down and people from the town have the chance to bury his body. This says that something was wrong with her state of mine, why would she do that?. “We remember all the young men her father had driven away, and we...
