speaking of the children , magic of words

speaking of children – magic of words

The writer of this essay is speaking against plural children in family. She
suggests that there should be a single child in a family. When there is only one
child, it is outnumbered by the parents. In other words, the parents control the
child. But if there is more than one child, the children control the parents. It’s
not only that. There are many other advantages of a singular child. The parents
can brainwash a single child. They can teach the child all sorts of good things
including good discipline and good manners. The parents can provide many
things to the child. They can buy all types of things that are required to
develop the creative faculty of their child.

With two or more children, there are always problems. The rooms are always
dirty with their toys thrown all over. It becomes impossible for the parents to
try the telephone or piano. The telephone is always engaged by the children.
The keyboards of the telephone or the piano are always dirty. With one child,
one may very comfortably attain different parties, make holiday programme
and so on. But, with plural children, it is always a counter culture. The most
important point
is that with plural children there remains no privacy between the husband and
wife in the house. They do not have enough time to talk to each other. For
example, when the writer tries to speak to her husband or when she wants to
be alone with him, she can’t do so because they are always interrupted by
their children. So, nowadays they telephone each other from their offices. The
next important point is that in the families where there are plural children, the
guardians almost get no time for the works of their personal development.

So, when we compare and contrast the advantages and disadvantages of one
child and plural children, certainly there is no doubt that there should be only
one child in a family. In the same way, the writer also advocates for one child
in a family.

look at the tea cup magic of words

In this essay, there are two different stories. The first story is the essayist’s
mother’s story. The mother married in 1939 with an American who had been
born in Czechoslovakia. She had bought china cups and plates for her
marriage. These cups and plates were made in Czechoslovakiaand they are
beautiful. In fact, she was very happy in her world of her cups and plates. For
her, marriage and the family were the most important things of life. Many
years later, she gave these cups to the writer because the writer is her

The second story in this essay is the story of the Second World War, which also
started in 1939. Many things fell that year. Basically, ‘that year‘ means the time
of war that caused many things to fall, for example, human bodies fell dead in
the streets by falling bombs. Countries, cities, industries, and a lot of other
things fall. Even Czechoslovakia stopped the production of beautiful teacups.
In this period, bombs fell on the innocent women and children. Thus, women
in America revolted against the crime and atrocities done on women.

They considered the crime as a male oppression and tyranny against women.
This is why, women’s liberation movement started. The women of this new
generation show their anger by rejecting old traditions. They consider work as
the most important thing in a person’s life. So, marriage and family lose their
importance because feminists take it as a kind of slavery. Tea cups are no
more a symbol of marriage and family life for the writer but they are actually
the symbols of the war against women. On the other hand, the essayist’s
mothe used to emphasize on family. Even the mother wanted her daughter to
get married. The essayist thinks past is very important but her mother thinks it
is the future that matters.
In this way, ‘the teacup’ in the essay connects the mother, the daughter, the
past and the present because it was made in 1939 in Czechoslovakia. We can
guess that by giving the teacup. the essayist’s mother intends to give her
other things like information about the past, but her mother does not
explicitly tell her about the past any more. This means that the only way the
daughter can find about her mother is by looking at the teacup.
