The Glass Castle real world issues

MENTAL ILLNESS

"A person's thinking, feeling or mood may affect and disrupt his ability to relate to others and function in daily life." Jeannette in the glass castle doesnt realate to people outside her family very well.

REBELLION

def:the refusal to comply with certain laws or to pay taxes and fines, as a peaceful form of political protest.

their family usually has to leave their home because the tax collectors are after them

ALCOHOLISM

"The majority of alcohlics do not quit drinking, however, and while we are waiting for sobriety to occur, families fall apart marriages may collapse, and children grow up and leave home." This is exactly what happened in the glass castle except rosemary stayed with rex, but all the kids left.

HOMELESSNESS

this could have helped jeannettes family by feeding them like when their family didnt have any food for a long period of time.

PARENTING

according to the information of this acrticle the only rule the parenst broke is being addicted to alcohol, which could get their children taken away but I personally dont think they should get them taken.

EDUCATION

I dont think that Jeannette’s parents exhibited educational neglect because even though the kids werent always in the classroom the mom would homeschool jeannette and her siblings.
