"Two Kinds" Mother-Daughter Conflict
In the conflict between Jing-Mei and her mom. Jing-Mei has the right idea. For example when Jing-Mei's mom signed her up for the talent show because she already bragged to her friends on how good Jing-Mei was and she wasn't even there at the practices. This shows that she isn't even there for her daughter becauseif she went to the practices she would know that her daughter could not play.For another example when Jing-mei's mom grabbed her and dragged her to play the piano to me that was child abuse and force. This shows that she isn't even concerened about how Jing-Mei feels or what she want's to do. This also shows that Jing-mei can stand up for herself and to her mother because she yelled at her which shut her mother down. Jing-Mei's actions shows that she doesn't want to be a prodigy piano player and that maybe her mom should accept that.
