The father and son may be getting older and spending less time together, but their love as father and son fortifies their relationship and prevents it from completely changing, which is exemplified when the father allows his son to use his rod to go fishing. The father’s rod is said to be “the only extravagance his father had had in his whole life” (45-46), meaning that the rod is of great significance to the father. Almost a whole paragraph is about how important the rod is to the father, and that’s not a detail included for decoration in Trumbo’s writing. Knowing that the father values his rod and invests time and money in it to
The son himself follows more of his mother’s personality, because he always thinks ahead. This is evident by the quote “…bothered teachers for homework assignments far ahead of their due dates so I could draw up schedules.” This shows that the son thinks ahead and likes to plan for the future, a characteristic he shares with his mother. The fathers care free, go with the flow personality is exemplified by his multitude of last runs. “He was indifferent to my fretting.” This quote shows that the father cares more about having fun with his kid than by adhering to the strict guidelines his wife has set. During the son’s pivotal moment where he starts to enjoy his time he see’s his father in a different light than what he used to the son realizes how much fun he has had with his father during the trip and on all the past trips they have been on.
The choice of school saliently demonstrates that having high economic capital influences the quality of acquired knowledge on the education journey. Another study mentioned above on the group of doctorate degree recipients, proves that they rose up in the education aspect despite having low economic capital is only possible after they build up their economic capital through various means, e.g. institutional support, employment, loans (Castillo, 2014). Economic capital not only limits an individual’s accessibility to schools, the standard of cultural capital being refined into academic achievements is limited by recognition and appreciation in lower quality schools (Jæger, 2011). The lack of economic capital resulted in having low accessibility to education is equivalent for healthcare services.
In the book, The Road, the author portrays the man to be very caring and protective over his son. The father would do anything if it benefits and helps his son. In this passage, I think the father was so desperate that the thought of his son’s safety drifted off. This is very unlike the father.

One of the first words children learn to say is “daddy.” This is one of the earliest signs that fathers play extremely large and important roles in their children’s lives. Part of the father’s role that can make or break the relationship with his child is the expression of fatherly love. Reuben Land of Peace like a River receives a constant stream of affection from his dad Jeremiah. In fact, the righteous Jeremiah Land is a near-perfect example of pure, fatherly love and even more so an example of God’s love for His children. Jeremiah isn’t just a tender father to Reuben; he treats his other children Swede and Davy with the same passion he shows Reuben.
Usually idolized by their children, fathers influence their child’s life. A child looks to the influential adults in his life for guidance on how to live in society. A father’s influence on his son remains one of the strongest in determining who that boy will become as an adult. In his novel, The Light in the Forest, author Conrad Richter explores this truth through his central character, True Son, a fifteen-year-old white boy kidnapped and raised since age four by the Indians and later forced to return to the white family he no longer knows. Throughout the novel, True Son remains greatly influenced by three fathers who try to teach him the values he will carry into adulthood: Cuyloga, his Indian father; Harry Butler, his white father; and the Sun, his spiritual?
In Ben Franklin’s essay he thought success was being morally perfect. For example, he said, “I wished to live without committing any fault at any time…” Sandra Cisneros’s essay wanted to teach people to turn their problems into achievements. For instance, she said, “I’ve managed to do a lot of things in my life I didn’t think I was capable of…” These sentences from their autobiography both are explaining how they’re going to reach their goals of success. The goals Ben Franklin is trying to achieve are moral perfection by following thirteen virtues. When Ben Franklin was seventeen he went to Philadelphia and was determined to become successful by completing a virtue every week.
Money is important because it allows individuals to have items needed to live the American Dream. In Dana Gioia’s poem “Money” he wrote about the meaning behind why money is important and how money is important in achieving the worry free aspect of the American Dream. “It greases the palm, feathers a nest, holds heads above water, makes both ends meet” (lines 10-12). When Gioia talked about greasing palms and feathering a nest, she was referring to how money drives Americans to continue working and how money provides a roof to live under. When Gioia talks about holding heads above water, she was referring to how money keeps from living a life of poverty.
