First grade was the year I got sent to the wall and ran away.
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped… If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny.

In Ellen Ruppel's, “In Praise of Bordeom” she explains from her personal history that boredom can be more beneficial than having an itinerary for your child because it can suppress the room to grow in creativity and imagination. For example, when she was a child, she consistently attended a vacant parking lot and would entertain herself with activities such as reading books, bouncing balls around and playing in the grass. She mentions that we are losing trust in our kids and don’t give them a long enough leash to navigate into the world. Ellen points the finger at marketing, because these days we are taught that the more money we spend on a learned progress like karate, organized sports and lessons, the more successful they will grow up to be. She feels that parents are straining a child's creativity and that play is
Children have an undeniable amount of innocent honesty.

“ True ignorance is not the absence of knowledge but the refusal to acquire it”. This quotation explains how individuals take for granted the knowledge given to them without recognizing its importance. This is evident in today’s world with social media and fake news.
