|How We Determine Our Grades|
After watching a movie with your children or students, we encourage parents and teachers to look for education opportunities to teach with movies. Here are a few discussion topics that can help with lesson plans or teaching in the home.
Why did Connor encourage Siddalee to stay in the South and deal with her past? How was her past affecting him? How did he help in rebuilding the mother/daughter relationship?
Although her childhood was traumatic, Vivi admits that some of the long-term damage she has experienced is self-inflicted. What did she mean by that comment? At what point do children have to take responsibility for their own lives and stop blaming their parents? What part does forgiveness play in becoming a healthy adult?
Mothers can come in many forms. Who were some of the mother figures in this film? How did those roles sometimes reverse? What individuals have mothered you in your life?
