In numerous families, children are expected to live up to the expectations set by their parents and or relatives. Often times, these expectations are portrayed as being achievable because of the fact their relatives had been able to complete the tasks laid before them in the past.

I believe-Atticus I believe in the righteousness of forever peace even in wrong, law is a side effect of purity as long as honesty and fairness is in play to lead to the fulfilling future. My children are growing older and I hope that they are getting the right guidance to change the way people see things, as others see a light that is dimmed by their own bias beliefs towards other. Especially since their mother die, but Aunt Alexandra has been a big help, most of the time... When she is not making the decisions for my children and the people who work for me, without me. They have learned a lot in their young adolescent life so far and will continue to learn just as long as i’m here to do so, I just hope others don’t change the way they feel,
