The issues facing Meg makes her a more complex character who transcends the requirements attached to the role played by a quintessential elder sibling. Middle children in typical American families are usually seen as excellent negotiators, as they are individuals who are not used to getting their way, and therefore, have to survive as skillful manipulators.

These devices help to develop themes such as the cruelty of mankind to itself. During harsh conditions such as the Dust Bowl, people turn on each other, feeling that they have no other choice in order to survive. Even in an environment of survival, people should help each other, for people are stronger in groups, and inhumanity should not be caused by the people it affects. In harsh conditions, inhumanity can be a cruel weapon, making survival strenuous, and life complicated. Although in severe conditions people are more likely to survive in groups, people often find themselves in a life or death situation where they only care about their family.
Love starts with hate, as some people indicate in order to point out the complexity of human behavior. What changes our emotions is spending time with these people and seeing their actual faces.

It is like bullying, if a kid is picking on a smaller and less confident kid, then they gain confidence from their pain making the kid not have any confidence, possibly ruining their life and crushing their hopes and dreams. The obvious problem is when personalized power dominates and the leader gains, often at the followers ' expense.

Fear has the ability to manipulate people into believing there is danger when there is not, causing them to make rash decisions. These decisions can result in a disobedience to one’s cultural beliefs, as seen in Lord of the Flies and Beowulf. Even though the characters from Lord of the Flies and Beowulf come from cultures built around nobility and loyalty, fear tears them apart from the society they had worked hard to achieve. Although the boys from Lord of the Flies tried to keep their culture’s morals, the fear of the unknown caused the children to betray their Culture.
Coporal Punishment which is the act of violence toward a child who has misbehaved is argued by many to either be abusive to the child or helpful. Some people argue that children which expierence coporal punishment are more likely to grow up and become vandals and thieves while others argue that coporal punishment makes a child tougher and prepares them for the real world.

If a child or young teenager is being harassed by a parent or any other adult figure, they feel inferior to the older adult, which keeps them quiet. Children are most easily manipulated, and adults use that to their advantage and prey on children. Minor’s that experience this can have short-term effects as well as long-term effects, such as bad behavior, anger towards adult figures or even extreme anxiety. People and children alike need to fight past the fear and speak up against their abuser, tell anyone and try to seek help and gain the justice they
The socio-cultural dimension of Peter is important to assess because this will allow me to understand Peter from a person-in-environment perspective and any cultural factors that may affect treatment. For example, in some cultures spanking is a more acceptable form of punishing children whereas in other cultures spanking children is viewed as inhumane. The socio-cultural dimension assesses family functioning, family roles or customs, as well as family financial status. This is also the part in the assessment where I would ask questions pertaining to Peter’s educational history, work history, and legal history.

Fear impacts people to take extreme measures and to act ludicrous. Fear is evident of townspeople accusing each other of witchcraft in Arthur Miller’s, The Crucible. It is evident John Proctor is fearing blackening his name for an act he did not commit. It also demonstrates Abigail Williams of fearing having a bad status in the
Arthur Miller’s inspiration for his play The Crucible resulted from his observation of the repetition of “witch trials" throughout history. All of these witch-hunts, especially the one that occurred in Salem, were bred from the political and social repression present in the communities. This communal repression influenced a hypocritical mindset, which then prompted some individuals to manipulate others’ fear in order to gain a breath of personal freedom. Through comparing the Red Scare to the trials of Salem and analyzing the repetitive nature of these horrific acts, Miller emphasizes the idea that it is human nature for people to turn to the manipulation of fear in order to liberate themselves from their present reality.
Christopher Paolini once said that “without fear there cannot be courage.” In “The Crucible,” John Proctor was put up to the ultimate test. During the Salem Witch trails if one was unable to cry real tears, unable to recite the Lord’s word, or seen with the “Devil’s Mark” then they would be accused of being a witch. Since witches are not real, it can be concluded that all who were accused were innocent. So, common ways that the public forced innocent people to confess about being a witch was to torture them, sexually abuse them, and have the threat of death looming above them.
