" Comparing and Contrasting Parents in Our Town" Our Town takes place in Grover's Corners in the early 1900's. Parents are very different now, from how they were then. Parents today are a lot harder on their children than parents are in Our Town.

Parents are much harder on their children today. When George was in trouble with his dad, he is punished for not helping his mom chop wood. His dad is mad at first but soon starts feeling sorry for George because he starts crying. In an attempt to try to make up for making George appease, he gives him a raise in his allowance.

Today when a parent punishes his children, he tries to punish him enough so he will try not to make the same mistake again. If my dad were to punish me for not doing something for my mother, he would ground me or take away some of my privileges.

The parents in Our Town don't want to punish their kids after they see them sad. If parents were that easy today like in Our Town, the children would make the same mistakes over and over again and never get punished.

The Parents are alike in some ways. All parents find some way to make their children feel better after punishing them. They do this because they soon regret that they were so hard on their children. The parents in our town are a lot easier on children than the parents in, the present day.
