The Parent- child Relationships in The Women of Brewster Place

Yu Yang
Abstract—Gloria Naylor is one of the outstanding African American black female writers. Her novel, The Women of Brewster Place is a novel in seven stories about the human survival, the collective support or independence and the issue of racism. Parent- child relationships is also a point the novel focuses on. Some parents overprotect their children so that their children do not support their parents as their parents are old. Several parent- child relationships in the novel have great impact on how to deal with relationships between parents and children in reality. We can draw a conclusion that over protection and overindulgence are extremely bad for children's development.

Index Terms—The Women of Brewster Place, Gloria Naylor, parent- child relationship.
