The death of his brother leads Holden to believe he should be strong and mature. When, in all honesty, he is too young to fully comprehend these emotions. This occurs in a number of ways like when he tries to order alcohol at age sixteen, his thoughts that he needs to be ready for sexual relationships (when he is not), and his idea that he knows more than most adults. As the novel continues,
The Coming Of Age Many people struggle to grow up and, being adults, but many do grow up. Phoebe and Stradlater teach about coming of age to Holden. They teach him things like not being childish and growing up, and how it 's okay to grow up. In the book Catcher In The Rye by J.D. Salinger, Stradlater, and Phoebe help develop the theme of coming of age by teaching Holden that he should himself and not be childish, accordingly how it 's okay to grow up. Holden struggles to grow up so Phoebe and Stradlater teach him some things about maturity and the coming of age.
Throughout a child 's life, sooner or later they get thrown into the teenage experience which starts their transition from childhood to adulthood. In the novel The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, the main character Holden Caulfield is stuck in his childhood and does not want to grow up. He is a very complex character and has an odd way of dealing with his emotions; he doesn 't. When Holden is faced with a problem, instead of facing it and slowly working his way through it, he tries to get rid of it entirely. He does not want to be thrown into the real world and will do anything to not be put in those “adult like situations”. I believe that Holden’s issues arose about the time when his younger brother Allie passed away due to leukemia when he was only eleven.
The most inevitable thing in life is growing up, but not a lot of people know when it happens. When trying to pinpoint the exact moment when one person came of age, it is nearly impossible to do so. If a person can do this, then that person would seem confused or review it like an old test. In Rudolfo Anaya’s novel, Bless Me, Ultima, it shows how hard it can be to pinpoint that moment of coming of age. Anaya conveys this idea by having Tony experience very notable and relevant events as he grows up.
Growing up is a vital part of life. But what does becoming an adult really mean? Many societies consider the 18th birthday the first step into adulthood, others the 21st. However, there is another definition, “An adult is a mature, fully developed person [who] has reached the age when they are responsible for their actions.” * This means that age plays less of a role than many people think; it is really maturity that is important.
This is a true sign of maturity in my opinion. He is thinking about those kids growing up and experiencing their first kiss however, sledding is enough for them until they get older. I find it interesting seeing him grow up and think about stuff like this because once in awhile I think about the future and the past and how things have come to be. Do you frequently think about the future? Do you reminisce a lot?
Lead In: A child will usually grow up hidden away from adult problems, and then learn the way of the world as he or she get older. However, in the novel Bless Me Ultima by Rudolfo Anaya, Antonio Marez, a child who has grown up with the weight of the world on his shoulders, while striving to fulfil his parents’ expectations and also struggling with the loss of many people around him, has learned to mature faster to deal with the problems he has endured in a short life time. For Antonio, his development begins not with his birth or with his first days of school, but with the arrival of Ultima, the curandera who moves in with his family because of old age. It is with Ultima’s arrival that Antonio is first exposed to the magic of the world and
Once we accept our limits, we go beyond them. In life we accept challenges and once we accept those challenges we can continue to grow. In the novel, “Bless me Ultima” written by Rudolfo Anaya; Antonio, is a seven year old boy who went through many twist and turns with a keenly questioning mind, a great deal of moral curiosity, and a solemn appreciation for the seriousness of life. I compare myself to Antonio do to the fact that we both were engaged with knowing destiny, learning to get over our fears, and learning to accept life and the challenges that came along with it.
This correlates to the life of Antonio Marez, a young boy finding his way through the stages of childhood and adulthood in the novel Bless Me, Ultima, by Rudolfo Anaya. Throughout the story, Antonio struggled to comply with the lifestyle his family chose for him which caused the haze in his mind to expand. At first, it was unclear what life he would choose, but once outside influences came into play, Antonio began to question the ideals he once believed in. In addition to his frequent questioning, life-altering events that Antonio experienced caused the fog to dissipate. Luckily the pressure, questioning and experiences Antonio faced pushed him into a state of maturity that allowed him to break from his old ways and choose his own path in life.

Throughout the novel, Scout has changed her view of Boo after a chain of Boo’s actions toward her. As Scout grows older, she becomes wiser to understand her father’s lesson, “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view – until you climb into his skin and walk around in it ” (39). Her father says this at the beginning, but till the end, thanks to the maturity combined with Boo’s actions that help Scout to understand it. She has matured enough to realize that people should not judge other people by rumor, but give them some chances to prove themselves.
Although Holden is not fully recovered he is much less depressed than his earlier stages in the book. Holden has taken a step further in his adult life and rather than dismissing those around them he begins to value them, thus being a big step. In the book Catcher in the Rye by J.D Salinger, the narrator and protagonist Holden Caulfield a sixteen year old junior undergoes a series of changes; changes that helped a distraught teenager learn that everyone grows up. You don 't need to be the “Catcher in the Rye” that protects the children from going if the deep end thought
Growing up is a process that is very physical and mental. This two parts are integrated as they happen everyday in a person 's life.

There are many benefits to the Insite program but I believe that the rehabilitation that is provided, is the most significant in terms of improving the lives of people with addiction. The reason that I think this is the most important is that it is the first step on the road to recovery. At Insite they provide support given by former addicts which is beneficial. This is important for people with addictions, because they will be able to connect with individuals who have struggled with similar issues.
It is hard to progress and mature but it is a necessary part of life, that in turn helps a person get through life and evolve into a new and better person. Holden Caulfield, the protagonist, in JD Salinger’s Catcher in the Rye transforms into a more mature person but in the processes starts to spiral out of control. As Holden progresses through the story he starts spiral out of control and doesn 't know how to channel his emotions in a positive and healthy way. When Stradlater wouldn 't tell Holden what he did with Jane he did, “This next part I don 't remember so hot.
