In the article, “Greg Ousley Is Sorry for Killing Parents. Is That Enough?,” by Scott Anderson proves that some young individuals may act violently for certain matters because of how their parents treat them. It is unclear as to why juveniles and adolescents automatically go into extreme measures, however, this may be caused by lack of support from their parents. Anderson asserts, “What Phillips couldn’t see was that Greg’s behavior masked a rapidly deteriorating home life, where he was now the sole focus of his mother’s rage. Almost daily, Greg told me, his mother would rip into him about something- his grades, his appearance, his choice of friends- ferocious tirades that often culminated in her telling him, “I know you’re going to leave me just like your sisters did.” Once her anger passed, Bonnie would usually apologize to her son, but after a time, Greg didn’t even hear it anymore” (Anderson 42).
Furthermore, it satisfies Seikichi even more when he sees his customers lay almost death before his feet. In this situation, when we see other people almost death in front of us, it is considered to be an uncommon behavior to give them a satisfied smile as Seikichi does with his customers. Not only can the physical pain of others fulfill Seikichi’s pleasure, but also others’ mental pain. To explain, when a maiden, whom Seikichi spends five years waiting for her, comes to visit his house he mentally abuses her by showing her two terrifying pictures. The subject matters in the two pictures that Seikichi trying to show the maiden are the man who will be beheaded, the gallows, the corpses and the battlefield which are so frightening to the maiden that she says “put that pictures away” with the lips trembling and her whole body shuddering (4).

George’s behaviour is normalized and explained away as stress due to moving but his family, coworkers and friends notice these erratic personality changes. Some examples are when George becomes easily irritated at those in his family, he begins to yell at the kids, demanding they do as he says; he even goes so far as to slap Kathy.

His parents physically and verbally abused him, an example of is the cigarette burn mark on Johns’ arm when Andrew doesn’t believe his reenactment of his parents. John hates his parents because the way that they treat him, which is typical of a teenager to hate their parents. John bender is a typical trouble maker, an example of this is when he unscrews this door forcing it shut and another example of this is when he brings everyone along to his locker to get his pot that they eventually smoke. In conclusion “The Breakfast Club” clearly identifies the different teenage stereotypes and the teenage stereotype as a whole. The stereotypes come through are the jock, the criminal, the nerd, the princess and the freak these are clear because of the five main character that each portray a different personality and background.

(The Shining, 30) Danny wonders if he would leave things would get better for his parents. The parents don’t appreciate the knowledge their son possesses as it disrupts their intellectual authority over their child. As explained in ‘The Gothic Child’, ‘excess feelings of bitterness’ prevail when a child is deserted by ‘their immoral, neglectful parents’ (Georgieva: 2013, p. xi). This links directly to Danny’s relationship with his father, as the possibility of Jack’s alcoholism and aggressive tendencies resulting in divorce is ‘the greatest terror of Danny’s life’, and in the source of great anxiety for him. This is further suggested as Danny first unlocks his psychic abilities whilst sensing the extreme strain on his parents’ marriage and “desperately… concentrating to understand” (Shining 40), further reiterating the relationship between neglectful familial relationships and the child’s susceptibility to the
As Clay Jenson listens to the tapes, he gets more dismayed as the tapes get worse enlisting larger actions. He faces abundant problems and struggles as he desperately waits for his name to appear on the tapes. Clay Jenson being a stock character becomes evident as it appears in diverse places throughout the novel in different forms; a compassionate friend, son, or peer. I liked the character of Clay Jenson as he was the only person from the list who had not done something disastrous to Hannah, nevertheless, he was on the list as Hannah wanted him to know the reasons for her unexpected suicide. He was a meaningful character who felt genuinely sorrowful for his actions, after Hannah's suicide.
Trust is having confidence within a relationship however such trust often leads to the ramifications of becoming vulnerable, and when someone becomes vulnerable we often find things to comfort ourselves. Christophers understanding of trust and truth often trails him into unusual environment in which he is unable to handle, for example when Christophers father confesses to Wellingtons murder. "then he held up his right hand and spread his fingers out in a fan. But I screamed and pushed him backwards so that he fell off the bed and onto the floor", the act in which he and his father engaged in to comfort Christopher now made Christopher upset and angry this reveals to the audience that trust can be challenge by personal attribute, Haddon use of expressive terms in regards to Christophers actions convinces the audience not only his dissapointment in his fathers lie but also his fear that his father may do the same thing to
Pathos is shown when Jack began to sing in the video, however, it is also shown in the lyrics. He talks about being heartbroken and dealing with it in unhealthy ways, to the point where he tries to kill himself. People will typically get an emotional reaction from this because either they have been in that situation or they cannot imagine being in that situation. The ethos in this song is that Jack is very credible to be telling this story because it is the story of life and there is nobody more qualified to tell it than he is. This video also appeals to logos because Jack understands that he is at a low point and, to most people, the logical thing to do would be to recognize that and fix it.
