Soooo... Tell us about The Help!
Maid or Mother?
What I Have Learned
What I have learned from these mothers or “motherly figures” is that even though they are from a different era, most can still relate to them in present day. It shows how racism and prejudice affected some, while had no impact on the quality of the mothers. Moreover, I was more impressed with how the maids did all the housework and looked after the children while the mothers were away or “too busy”. Today, it seems mothers have more control over both their kids and their households where they don’t need to hire maids, even if they have the money to do so. I would recommend this novel to anyone and I hope they will have taken something from it just as much as I have.
