In fact, Scout believed her father was boring compared to other fathers, she noticed, “He didn’t do the things out schoolmates’ fathers did” (118). She did not understand the importance of his job specifically; it was not labor, and she could not observe direct effects of his efforts. Scout did not think he had any skills for he took careful consideration and never showed off unless it was desperate. At one point in the novel, Atticus’s sister, Aunt Alexandra, wanted to teach the children about their heritage and their ancestors as if it dictated who they were, but Atticus worked to have the children perceive other people as simply having different ways of living. His observations can be observed through his accommodations for his company, “And yet not look too good, or talk too wise.” Scout noticed how depending on who he was around, he would change ever so slightly to ensure more comfort of them, not to cause them to feel inferior.
.sure her own [looks were] all right” (988), wanted to become independent and do things that not every girl her age does, faces a male who wants her, but she does not want him, she begins to become afraid. The story shows that Connie was not prepared for Arnold Friend’s despite her actions beforehand. Connie is the opposite of her sister, June. June is a goodie-to-shoes while Connie wants to be her own person. Her mother always nags on Connie saying that she should be like June who follows the rules and is a good role model.
Hulga fits all of those categories in a way, she had a limp because she did not have a leg, she was not physically ugly, but the way she thought of herself was, and she was undesirable because she did not take care of herself properly. “One of her major triumphs was that her mother had not been able to turn her dust into Joy…” (O 'Connor 484), this could mean that with name decision Hulga had made her mother could not turn it into something positive, because once something is dust you can not turn it back into its original form. Hulga’s name change symbolized that she was not the same girl she once was or she would be. In addition, the author inserts Vulcans name to compare him to Hulga’s
Her argument is not based on evidence or researches, it is based only in her personal experience and examples. The attitude that she keeps is not the attitude of a teacher and so much less of a parent. She looks very immature and it makes her argument ineffective, so her try to convince her audience fail. Excluding students from the audience is inevitable because they are the center of the discussion. However, Sherry leaves them out, she made up her audience by teachers and parents.
In the novel, Scout is a tomboy and because she does not have a mother as she is dead so she doesn’t really have any female influence growing up. Scout looks up to Jem and wants to be like him. One day, Jem says, “I declare to the Lord you’re gettin’ more like a girl every day!”(69). Scout is outraged by this and takes the word as an insult. Also, in Maycomb females should be wearing dresses and acting lady-like, nevertheless Scout likes to wear overalls and play with Jem and Dill which can be seen as very un-ladylike.
Scout loses her childhood innocence throughout the story as she grows up and realizes not everything you do is acceptable. Miss Maudie ¨Do you think Boo Radley is still alive?¨ says Scout (Lee, 57). Scout clearly isn't mature enough to realize this question is not appropriate to be talking about with your neighbors because it isn't the right environment or person. Also tone Miss Maudie responds with clearly gives off the impression that she does not think Scout have asked that question. Scout then realizes that boo isn't such a bad person.
Being a traditional parent doesn’t mean parenting exactly like others; doesn’t everyone have their own parenting style? In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Atticus Finch is a prime example of an unusual parent; he shows his kids when and when not to let pride stand in the way of whats right as well as treating people with respect despite their differences. Atticus portrays an example of a good parent. To begin, pride is one of the main reason a man/women will stand up for what is right when they know it is wrong; they will always do the right thing to help out others. Atticus — the father to Jem and Scout— teaches is children just that.
This proved when the narrator’s mother always tried to get the narrator to do work that appropriate for a lady instead of outside work, however it was not something that she enjoyed. The narrator also was not considered of real helper to her father because she was a female. This proved when her father introduced the narrator as ‘his new hired hand’ to a salesman, he replied, “I thought it was only a girl” (line 76, paragraph 10).This shows how the society view girl as ‘just a girl’ at that time and it means that their roles are not really significant in the society. As being said by Alexander Pope (1688-1744), “Most women have no character at all.” (Bressler, C.E., 2011). Next, from the statement “wait till Laird gets a little bigger, then you’ll have a real help” (line 94, paragraph 12), it shows that, even though the narrator had done more work than her younger brother, she was still under appreciated and her helps seem unimportant for her father.
Women in the upper class were not expected to work, because it was not proper behavior for them, and thus they did not need to be taught subjects in school about that. Very few women had jobs and if they did it was because they were not married, which was not popular in society at that time. These women went against the expectation to get married young, run a home and care for their families. The focus on gentility during this time is large proponent of why there were few advertisements for female academies and why only a select set of courses were taught at the female academies. Had women had the equal opportunity to learn all of the same subjects as men during this time, they could have made a contribution to society and held jobs in their
In the 1800s a girl’s father encouraging her to pursue an education was not the “norm”; however, Jane Addams was never a the stereotypical “lady” during her lifetime. Her father wanted her to be educated, but he still wanted her to be a “lady”. At this point in time a woman could not be ladylike and educated at the same time; a girl is one or the other, never both. Jane told her parents she wished to pursue a career in medicine, they did not respond well; she would be in school for longer than they expected (“Jane Addams.” Women). They wondered if she’d ever get married; Jane never worried about marriage or having children, for she wanted more out of life.
those cells we’d been working on came from a live woman. I’d never thought of it that way.” (91) They finally began to realize that Henrietta was not a toy; she was a real human being with a life, a family, and thoughts of her own. The fact that she was an under class, black woman in the 1950s made her less of a human. So doctors didn’t treat her fairly like they would someone with a lighter shade of skin. These three ideas relate to each other because it shows how people didn’t bother to get to know Henrietta or the Lacks family until real profit was involved; and the only real time they’d attempt to “contact” the family was to ask for the permission to have Henrietta’s medical records, or it’s bothersome reporters constantly asking them questions that they wouldn’t know the answer
