Post B week three
Helen starts to have flashbacks towards her childhood and how much her mother had put pressure on her to act older than her age. Her mother would not leave the yard, let alone the house. This was a hard time for Helen and her father. Before Helen kills her mom she has nightmares, and after, it was a reality. Helen washed her mom after she was murdered her. Her mother, Clair, soiled herself so Helen thought she should clean her so people didn't see her like that. Helen thought she was respecting her, even though no one else can see it because Helen just killer her mom. I think Helen’s mother put her through some very hard times and kind of brought this on herself. Helen was only a child when she could see the difference between her family and others. She knew her mom wasn’t the same as everyone else’s mom. She knew her dad had to work a lot harder to keep the family together. I think Clair was a burden to the family somewhat because she wouldn’t even try to get over her condition she just stayed there and waited for her family to help her. She didn’t even try for herself to keep her family together.
