Family Communication
Connie an interesting character to describe and analyze from the story “Where are you going, Where have you been?” by Bob Dylan. She was a fifteen years old girl where in home her mother always complains about Connie. Also, her mother always made comparisons between Connie and her older sister, and this bothered Connie. So, this aspect caused that she got rebel against her mother. Everybody knows which fifteen years old is a complicated and hard age because teenagers are having changes in their bodies, thinking, and attitude.
In this story Connie was a girl a little cocky; she always thought that she was really pretty, but she needed love from her mother because is clearly how the mother treated Connie. First of all her mom always was making comparison between Connie and her sister. For example, the mother always said ...view middle of the document...

Connie didn’t receive a nice treat from her mother. So, this was a reason why Connie lied to her mother and she wanted to be alone in her house. This character has defects because she wasn’t perfect; but as a reader we have to highlight one important virtue; courage. Connie was a girl with courage because she was afraid of that kid called Arnold Friend and his friend Ellie.
Arnold Friend tried to give a ride to her, she didn’t know him, but him knew her and what her family were doing; also he knew who were Connie’s friends. Arnold Friend was an opportunist trying to take her somewhere and probably do something to her. At the beginning she wasn’t afraid, she was talking to them like normal, and then Arnold Friend started to put pressure to Connie trying to convince her for a ride in his car. She began to feel nervous because he was talking in a loud voice. Connie went inside the house until he threatened her with her family. She was freaking out she tried to call the police, but she couldn’t dial the number. Connie was a girl with courage until she made a bad decision in her life; talked with strange and weird people that she never saw in her life.
Sometimes parents and children have not communication at all. In this case Connie and her parents didn’t talk at all, the only thing which as a reader could notice was Connie’s mother complaining all day about her; also the comparison between sisters. In this world everybody is different; each person has an attitude and a personality. So, as a father or mother you have to understand that you never will have a son or a daughter exactly the same even if they are twins, they could be physically the same, but they will have different thinking and personality.
That’s why like son we should talk with our parents and express our feelings because you never know what a father or mother is thinking; they are not perfect. Communication is the most important think in a family. Never forget this because you can finish like Connie without family support.
