In the book he takes her to a natural sulfur spring, just with the family and basically almost drowns her to make her swim. We didn’t get a lot of detail in the book, except for the thoughts that Rex was one crazy person. In the movie we really get the scene and how things truly may have panned out. In the movie, we clearly see a young Jeanette, at a public pool with her family and a bunch of people around. This changes the feel of the scene immensely, as there is all eyes on the Walls family.
An example of this neglect positively affecting Jeannette is when Rex taught Jeannette how to swim by letting her struggle until she was close to drowning. “... you can't cling to the side your whole life, that one lesson every parent needs to teach a child is. "If you don't want to sink, you better figure out how to swim.” (Walls 66) This unusual approach to parenting positively affected Jeannette because it forced her to face her fears and become
Holden has a mother and a father who appreciate him but disagree with his actions. Holden has a sister named Phebe and a brother named D.B. Unfortunately Holden had a brother named Allie who had died from leukemia. I believe Holden is a troubled teen because of his brothers death, maybe if things were different, his problems with his interactions with others wouldn't bother him as much as it does. Throughout the story I could notice the problems Holden has with not only the interactions with people but the environment because he has problems with people that are fake and in the story Holden always calls them, “Phonies”.

As the Walls leave the pool Rex gives the same speech to Jeannette, except in the film the pool manager interrupts Rex asking if there is a problem. This sends Rex into a rage resulting in him assaulting the manager. The change in setting is effective because we see just how outrageous Rex’s behavior is viewed through the lens of normal parents. Rex’s character is an integral part of the story. His character is responsible for the outrage the reader feels towards the Walls parents abuse, but the reader also feels some kindred with Rex because, like Rex, the reader, too, wants to see the Walls children succeed and overcome the obstacles their parents have created.
The Shining combined with Alcohol In Stephen King’s, The Shining, Jack Torrance is a recovering alcoholic, and he thinks about drinking all the time. Alcoholism is a huge impact on the relevance of dysfunctional families, domestic abuse, and cases family violence as shown in the novel. For example, Jack breaks his son's arm while he is drunk and enraged. Jack's father was an also an alcoholic, this probably led to this outcome. Alcohol has a huge impact on the plot, it was practically the base of the story to be exact.

Therefore, my sisters and I snuck into our neighbor’s backyard and dumped Drowny into their 8 foot long wide of large orange and white fishes, where we believe he was eaten. But, for all we know, Drowny is still
Sue Klebold had a hard time believe in the beginning that her son had something to do with the shooting. She wanted to believe it was a prank that went wrong or that someone forced him to do it. Where Eva knew from the beginning that Kevin was a problem child and knew he would lash outward one day. Sue also though that throughout her son 's life, he was a gentle, loving person; Eva on the other hand never really liked her son. I think Dylan’s friend, Eric, was more like Kevin in the sense that he was more homicidal than suicidal.
