The Walls children have no choice but to survive their conflicts. Their parent’s abuse and, at the very least, neglect, leave them emotionally and physically vulnerable. They must learn how to survive through periodic starvation and neglect. They have no sense of home or stability so they must create these needs on their own. The Walls children come to expect hard times which they excel at dealing with.
