Everybody in this world needs a way to express themselves in their own unique way even young children. Gerard Jones argues this point well in his essay titled Violent Media is Good for Kids. Jones is a well know comic book writer with some of his works turned into cartoons and video games. Jones experienced this need for self-expression first hand when he was a child; socially awkward towards his peers Jones needed a way to help him gain confidence in social interactions. Jones talks briefly about his grade school age son and how he was afraid to climb a tree at school along with his peers.
In the beginning of the story Paul is portrayed as a stereotypical high school teen: causing trouble in the classroom. However, as the story progresses, the reader sees Paul develop into a rather withdrawn character. Paul is bothered by the dullness of his home and school life, and would much rather be spending his time at Carnegie Hall with the actors and actresses. For this reason, Paul can be described as a round and dynamic character. Paul is happiest in his fantasy world than the realities of the real world, which “represent his idea of beauty and personal brilliance” (Saari 389).
In the article, “Achievement of Desire” by Richard Rodriguez, starts to discuss the conflict of scholarship boy between school life and his home life. When he starts to make progress in his education, he was becoming discouraged and embarrassed of his parents lack of education. Rodriguez admits his success is due to never forgetting his life before he became a scholarship boy, yet the new change that came from getting an education. After reading this article, I would have to agree with certain parts Rodriguez has to say, yet disagree after realizing individuals who take the values of academic culture will start to experience alienation from native communities. Richard Rodriguez describes the difficulties between balancing life in the academic world and life of a working class family.

Wilbur does so with comforting and childlike rhyme scheme and tone with personification to ease the child’s thoughts. This leaves the child to not dream of “some small thing in a claw/ borne up to some dark branch and eaten raw.” The poem successfully calms the child’s worries and relieves their curiosity. Collins, on the other hand, ironically portrays the teacher as protecting the children’s innocence when he later implies that they had already lost it. He is shielding them from real world events that every child should learn in school. Feeding them more ignorance is does not protect their innocence, for children go to school to learn.

“Charles” a story by Shirley Jackson, highlights the the narrator's son Laurie and his “classmate” Charles. Due to a serious case of parental myopia in the narrator and her husband, they fail to see that Charles is merely a clever device used by Laurie to fool his parents. Laurie uses this to his advantage and describes his own doings using the character Charles. His parents do not realise this until the very end of this story when the teacher explains that there is no such boy called Charles in her class. I believe that Jackson is trying to say that identity is not only your name and who you are, but it is also what you do and some fail to see things the way they are and not the way they think it is.
Autistic teens will often get discouraged in school, because the abnormality of their behavior which leads others to believe that they are incapable of learning--if this has not convinced the person themselves.
