The Fosters, Winnie's family, are an example of the quintessential Victorian family. They are strict, educated, wealthy, and sophisticated. They have rules for their daughter Winnie about how her life should be lived. She is frustrated by these stifling rules and feels trapped in this proper, stuffy Victorian lifestyle. The Tucks live very differently than the Fosters. The Tucks are free spirits, living in the woods rather non-traditionally. They are messy, living in a disorderly cottage, dressing more casual and living comfortably in a more bohemian and free lifestyle. Winnie has never seen this sort of lifestyle before, and it shocks but also thrills her. While uneducated, the Tucks are, however, very wise, and they live close to nature. They understand, due to the fact that they are immortal, the importance of the circle of life and the natural order of things. Winnie learns many important lessons from them, and finds a balance between the structure of her family's life and the life that the Tucks leave, where even in their permanence of life, everything is impermanent and they live in constant fear of being discovered.

All lifestyle are different some are strict some are super nice, let’s talk about the book tuck everlasting, the lifestyle of the Tuck’s family and the Foster’s family. The Foster’s are rich, clean and neat. The Foster’s are strict, educated and have allot of rules. They live in the village. The Foster’s are social and is a careful family. Their safe, they are overprotective. The Foster’s are a very original family but they are protective.


Comparing Foster’s and Tuck’s family is easy, I already described the Foster’s now let’s describe the Tuck’s lifestyle. The Tuck’s family hides from the population because there everlasting and they don’t want to be seen. The Tuck’s family is very wise and close of the forest. Their family is free and no rules nothing.  They live in the forest. They understand the circle of life and they live old style. The Tuck’s family is the opposite of the foster’s lifestyle.
