Read this student rough draft and answer the questions that follow. (1) In times of instability, families provide an anchor through their support and understanding. (2) In Cheaper by the Dozen, a girl named Anne and her eleven siblings are in a close family that shares memorable times together in the early 1900s. (3) The bonds of family influence Anne by making her a stronger person. (4) Family members provide support in times of need. (5) Ernestine, Anne’s younger sister finds out that a boy climbed on to a cherry tree to spy on her through her bedroom window. (6) When Ernestine tells Anne, Anne rounds up four of her siblings, together they scare the boy away. (7) Without help from her brothers and sisters, Anne would not have been able to frighten no one away. (8) When their older sisters begin going on dates, Frank, Bill, and Lillian resent the fact that their sisters are spending less time with them. (9) On one occasion, Ernestine receives a picture with a message from a shy boy. (10) When he comes to court her, Frank, Bill, and Lillian sing a song with the words from his message to embarrass him. (11) Lillian has the support of her two brothers in this project because they, too, dislike the idea of boys hanging around their sisters. (12) Being a part of a close family provides a sense of belonging. (13) When measles spread to most of the children, they all have to stay in bed and rest.

(16) These activities make them closer because they’re spending time together and getting to know each other even better. (17) This gives them a sense of unity because they all have to suffer the fate of being sick with one another. (18) The doctor also makes some of the children have their tonsils taken out. (19) They are all worried and nervous about the operation. (20) These feelings bring the siblings closer together because they are all sharing the same feelings for the same purpose.
