Considering what we have seen happen throughout act 1 and 2, how do you think Walter and Benetha's immature actions have made an infulence in Ruth's character at the closing of act 2? Explain in your opinion how Ruth has dealt with their actions and why she's the one that has to be responsible for them.

I think that Ruth is acting like Walter and Beneatha's mother. she has to work, cook, clean and their immature actions are just making her tired and stressing her out. She has to work to provide for the house and it's just making Ruth a dull person because of the way they are towards her.
I think that their behavior has cause Ruth to age much faster than she normally have and it has cause her to be very unhappy. I think she deals with their actions by ignoring them for the most part. She doesn't really make them do anything or accept responsibility and I think it's because she doesn't want to fight with them so she just does everything without them.
