In the opinion of Hans Junior, his father was part of an old, decrepit Germany--one that allowed everyone else to take it for the proverbial ride while its own people suffered,” (Zusak, 104). Today, similar disputes happen between families when children support something their parents don’t. Sometimes, children are able to reunite and reconcile with their parents. But often, like with Hans Junior, they never get the chance. Zusak shows us an example of a broken family that never had the chance to repair not only to show another example of family, but to make an effort to prevent more broken families.

He also wrote this for parents who ride they kids to the point where they’d rather die than play sports. Sports are supposed to be fun and entertaining. But if you as a parent put your child down and make them feel bad for doing something wrong is where you mess up.
Family, for most people, is defined as a sort of safe haven for people to go to. For others, families may be fragmented, split, or may have wrong ideals as a whole. Broken families, while they may have a long lasting effect on the spouses, can also have a detrimental, long-lasting effect on the children of these marriages which can lead to certain mental illnesses. For example, in the story of the Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks, Deborah faces the emotional effects of her mother’s death. Other stories such as “A Rose for Emily”, show how Emily 's fathers parenting techniques and a lack of a mother figure burdened her future.

The children were abandoned by their parents and nursery. Therefore, abandonment is a theme in “The Veldt”. However, there is other evidence to support the theme of people dislike change. Such as, the children lie and harm others to stop their lives from changing. “The Veldt” by Ray Bradbury is a story with multiple themes, but the main theme is that people are scared of change.
I guess that's what happens when you flunk out of school and have no education. I'm sure their parents are just as guilty for not knowing what their kids were doing; or knew it and didn't care.” The teacher goes on to add, “I'm almost to the point of wanting them all segregated on one side of town so they can hurt each other and leave the innocent people alone. Maybe the 50s and 60s were really on to something. Now, let the bashing of my true and honest opinion begin...GO!” The reaction to her opinion has been critical, with people taking to Twitter to express their disappointment, frustration, and worry over the teacher’s remarks.

The first stage of grief is denial. Denial is when someone disagrees with the fact that something has happened and they do not like it. According to the Grief Packet when one is in the denial stage, “You tell yourself that it isn't happening” (Ross 18). This means that someone can think something is not true in some way. Most people go through this stage often in their life because of their relatives dying or just losing something that they were friends with.
In Fahrenheit 451, the concept of family in Montag’s society resembles and differs from certain aspects of the family norm in our own society. Montag’s society sees love as something that can be replaced in a matter of moments, or that love can be taken as easily as it is given.

One of Mrs. Phelps’s previous husbands had killed himself, and she was able to move on within a week.
Anthropologist studying rejected Colombian Mestizo children had found that in response to the indifferent treatment, “children will roll on the floor, beat their heads against the wall, and may even break their teeth while doing so” (R. Rohner and E. Rohner 193). These severely violent temper tantrums would continue in their childhood, developing to become even worse as they get older. Once the rejected mestizo children learn to speak, “they scream threats against their mother, which become increasingly verbose and insulting as the child acquires a wider vocabulary” (R. Rohner and E. Rohner 193). In another study, American children who were categorized as rejected in the 1930s and 40s were retraced in 1970s to study the long term effects of parental rejection. Researchers had found that the rate of juvenile delinquency was significantly higher in rejected children than loved children.

Arising from this scenario child ends up being hurt when they finally discover the real reason affecting their family from mostly third parties for example from school or their neighborhood. Information that reaches the children from third parties devastates the children since it mostly is exaggerated or it is just said in a way that shocks the child, which leads the child to a state of dilemma. The child is exposed to intimate details of their parent’s relationship that may be mostly mislead, hence affects the child negatively in the long
