In J.D. Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye, Holden’s present life is being affected by all the troubling things he 's had happen to him in the past. Holden has never really stopped grieving his superlative brother—Allie’s—death which can lead to sudden anger outbursts abuse.

A boy that Holen liked—James Castle—jumped out of a window after a few boys bullied him.
Even when Misha found out his name and family he still didn’t remember his name was Misha Pilsudski and, he didn’t recognize any family members when he heard their names. Similarly, in Maniac Magee the main character Maniac, also has no parents because they died in a trolley accident and then Maniac abandoned his aunt and uncle and went on the loose. At one point in the story Maniac tells Mr. Beale that he has no home because his parents died and he was left with his aunt and uncle who hated each other so Maniac decided to leave. Maniac reveals to Mr. Beale he has no home, “Maniac’s lip started to quiver, and right there, with the car idling in the middle of the street, Maniac told him that he didn’t really have a home, unless you counted the deer shed at the zoo.” (43). This proves my claim because it reveals how hard it is for a kid like Maniac to deal with having no family.

Dave had many marks from the beatings he would get at home along with the burns from the stove incident. He also was caught stealing food during the school day so he wouldn’t starve to death, but since his principal found out and called his mother his punishments extended and he was starved and beaten up, “ By the end of the session, my nose bled twice and I was missing a tooth” (p.33). He was also sleep deprived, he said that one of his teachers “began by questioning me about my attentiveness. I lied, saying I had stayed up late watching television”(p.33). Appearance was not much of a matter to Catherine, so he send Dave with the same torn, smelly clothes every single day, but Dave knew exactly what to say when questioned “When asked, I had my readymade excuses Mother brainwashed into me.” (p.30).
My response essay will come from the essay who a girl was involved called Sandra Cisneros, the daughter of a Mexico-American mother and a Mexico father. A daughter whose father didn’t believe in whatever she did. No matter how Sandra tried her best to impress her father, Sandra’s father didn’t believe her because of the tradition that lasted for years that, girls can’t do stuff that will catch an eye from the society. Anna was not allowed to play with her brothers in public, and also, not only she wasn’t allowed to go to school, but also, she wasn’t allowed to expand her talent of drawing. It’s the same with my relatives from my mother’s side.

He was the target of bullying in school and in the Navy. Then, both his mother and brother died young.

Finally after a while his grandmother started to feel sorry for him and told Moon some things about the Golden Mountain.
A popular belief held by a number of literary critics is that Holden’s parents send him away to expensive schools such as Pencey, because they cannot handle his emotional unsettled he is. He shows his confusion, anger and hurt feelings after Alfie’s death and how he cannot contain his grief. Holden doesn’t understand his own feelings and we learn through; “I slept in the garage the night he died, and broke all the goddamn windows with my fist…” Holden’s violent reaction to his brother’s death reveals his frustration and inability to make sense of the injustice of his brother’s illness. By sending Holden to boarding school, his parents aim to provide him with a safe and stimulating environment, away from the constant reminder of Alfie’s death, however Holden fails to understand the rules of boarding life and
Depending on where his parents settled in the United States, their inability to find work could have been due to their level of education, prospects due to geography, or perhaps, something more insidious, such as racism or xenophobia. In any event, as a result of their failure to succeed in their adopted country, Dad turns to alcohol and eventually leaves the home. Mom, like many single mothers, must work multiple jobs to pay the bills and must rely on neighbors to care for her child, or leave the child to fend for himself. During the most critical developmental years (through age 7), Shobbit develops feelings of abandonment, since he is essentially raising himself. Mom eventually passes away, forcing this young immigrant into our convoluted foster care system.

On June 8, 2010, eleven year old, Jorge Tarin, told a school counselor he was going to kill himself after school. Because he could not bear being hit by his father anymore. Jorge’s school sent him home due to the lack of power they possessed to keep him and the lack of knowledge on his family history. The same day a social worker and a police officer visited the Tarin family, the home was declared safe to keep a child in, without any real knowledge of the family.
