Effects of Alcoholism on the Whole Entire Family
In the glass castle, Alcoholism affects the family in many negative ways. This is seen when the family goes to live in Rosemary's moms and the termites begin to chew through the wood. Instead of going to the store to try and fix the problem or hiring someone to get rid of the bugs Rex goes out and buys himself a six pack of cold ones. Rex gets wasted every night, and does nothing to help provide for the family. Jeanette says "after he polished off each beer, he used a can to repari one of the holes. And when a new hole appeared, he'd get out his hammer, down a beer, and do another patch job"(walls 101). This affects the family in a negative way because their father is a drunken disaster. If Rex wasn't an alcoholic, I think that they places they stayed in would have been a lot nicer and cleaner. The living conditions that the walls family live in is very bad when compared to other families. Another example of alcoholism affecting the family is when Rex steals loris money from her the money she was going to use to go to New York. Jeanette says "I had come home with a couple of dollars I made babysitting... I finally found oz on the floor. Someone had slashed him apart with a knife and stolen all the money. I knew it was dad"(walls 228).this proves that alcohol can ruin someone's life if Rex is stealing from his family their is no wondering what he could do next.
