Like Boo Radley, Mrs Dubose 's courage is not plainly seen by Scout and Jem at the beginning, but her couragesness teaches the children something they will never forget. For Scout, Mrs. Dubose is a brash, nasty woman who takes over their afternoons after Jem goes crazy on her camellias. It 's not until after she dies that Scout and Jem get a sense of what 's going on behind the drool and venom. Mrs. Dubose is a morphine addict who had vowed to go clean before she died, and enlisted Jem and Scout (without their knowledge) to keep her off the stuff for longer and longer periods of time. Atticus tells the kids the lesson he hopes they 've learned from her.
Atticus may have many flaws, but those flaws are what makes him a good character, and not bad father. This essay is on the book To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, and the subject is that Atticus is a good parent to his children because he helps them grow, does not coddle them and tells them the truth. The essay will start with evidence of how he helps them grow, then how he does not coddle them, and finally, how he is truthful to them. Firstly, Atticus shows good parenting skills by helping Jem and Scout grow and mature. For example, “’What Mr. Radley did might seem peculiar to us, but … not … to him.
The fact that Atticus is willing to risk his son possibly going to jail demonstrates the amount of courage and integrity Atticus has as a person since he wants to do what he believes to morally right. Atticus taking on the Tom Robinson trial and risking his reputation, protecting Tom Robinson from the mob, and revealing the truth about Bob Ewell are all evident ways that Atticus demonstrates courage in order to set an example for his children and the town. Throughout To Kill a Mockingbird Atticus actions influence the town in positive ways and emphasizes the lessons he teaches his children through his actions. Ultimately, Atticus helps steer the town in the direction of having less intolerance and being more open
Atticus’ fairness displays he is a good parent because he considers that everyone deserves a chance to be understood and have motives for their actions. After disclosing the news to his son and daughter of Tom’s death, Atticus says, “Depends on how you look at it. What was one Negro, more or less, among two hundred of ‘em? He wasn’t Tom to them, he was an escaping prisoner” (Lee 235). Atticus always attempts to place himself in other people’s places in order to give everyone a chance of being understood.
He protects Tom when the mob come to kill Tom I know that because Atticus says to Walter cunningham “ you can turn around and go home, Walter”(151). This quote shows he stands up for Tom Robinson because Atticus risks himself getting beat up to help Tom not to be killed. Another thing that Atticus does to protect Tom was “ I'm simply defending a negro his name's Tom Robinson”(75). This quote shows Atticus protecting Tom because Atticus treats defending Tom just a regular case. Some people may argue Atticus is not a hero.

Atticus takes the trial knowing the consequence that him and his family will be harrassed by the town because it is the right thing to do.

Creative Title Many people believe integrity is one of the most important traits to have. Nowhere is this concept more prevalent than in To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee. In the town of Maycomb, racism and prejudice are so deeply ingrained in society, they impact every aspect of daily life, including the justice system and one’s right to a fair and equal trial.

By choosing to defend Tom Robinson, Atticus is choosing to teach his children morals and the value of standing up for what they believe in, rather than letting them fall victim to the racist hivemind of Maycomb.
This is why parents want to give the best education possible for their children in order to see them growing up with a good moral condition, but the triste reality of life gives our children two alternatives either you are good or you are bad, and this is a choice they make according to the education they choose to follow. Therefore, the idea of having a strong influence on young people literally draws attention and acceptation to what you say, and this is what Mark Twain had through his comic books. Mark Twain in “Advise to youth” has decided to be, not only an entertainer, but also a moral figure for all his lectors and fans (who are young people for the most part). He gives through this article a hand of help to parents by engraining in his lectors what is considered to be the most formidable concept of ethic for young people in the society. I believe that “Advice to youth” is a wonderful source of help for young people because it bring advices that opens doors for success.
Finally, Calpurnia teaches Scout and Jem valuable lessons on morality. In “To Kill a Mocking bird”, Jem and Scout are influenced by other characters and develop into mature young adults. Morals and values taught by others is an important part of growing up: especially taught by fathers. Atticus teaches the kids that despite social divide among the community, people still need to treat others with respect.
