The relationships between the the daughter and father and son and father are seen as rigid relationship. For the father and his children, he does not allow for open communication to happen about rules or boundaries of their relationship; he displays a strong parental role that does not allow for feelings to be expressed about how the relationship is. With the mother and children, it is both a semi-permeable relationship; this means that the children are able to express their concerns about the relationship, but Ms. Freeland has the final say on how the boundaries and rules will be implemented. Open communication is more commonly found between the mother and the children. The relationship between Tracy and Mason is loose because they are not set on boundaries and spend only small amounts of time with each other.
It is Luke’s fatherly love for his daughter that leads to his dilemma between pursuing the truth of doing what is just and right and demonstrating his love for his daughter. "A Father's Story," by Andre Dubus shares that the love of a father toward his own daughter means that he will protect her even if the process calls for him to misplace a part of himself. To protect his daughter, the father is forced to undergo challenges, a battle between his mind and his values. In the story, Luke Ripley, the protagonist, drops his core principles and ethical values deliberately to protect his daughter. I believe that the central conflict in "A Father's story" is a betrayal of a friend's trust and personal values and ethics for the sake of love, because
Chris uses pathos by providing examples of Chris’ troubled family life. For example, after finding out about his father’s affair, Chris felt as if he could only trust Carine. This is evident as Chris sent her a letter saying, “Anyway, I like to talk to you about this because you are the only person in the world who could possibly understand what I am saying” (Krakauer 129). This appeals to our emotions as Krakauer makes us empathize with Chris: he feels as if no one understands him, so he thus ignores his family. Chris was not only socially isolated, but he was also physically isolated from everyone he loved.
Both the poem “Warren Pryor” by Alden Nowlan and the short story “Harrison Bergeron” by Kurt Vonnegut, Jr express a depressing tone. “Warren Pryor” is about a son who chooses a career that he dislikes in order to please his parents. “Harrison Bergeron” is about a dystopian society where excellence in any way is considered a disadvantage and inequality for others. In both texts, the protagonists all face the barrier of having their nature being stifled; however, the speaker in the poem chooses not to fight back for himself, while the majority in the short story is not even able to realize the barrier that they face. In the poem, the speaker Warren Pryor is under the pressure and high expectation of his parents that he has to choose to work
His mother provided a needed nurturing feature that he would need to give him the boost to return to the aspects of society. Krebs struggled to find ways to regain his stature in society and his mother felt it was her duty to help him along the way even if he was mean to her without understanding why he was doing such. Krebs would even tell his mother he did not love her, even though he did not mean it (Hemingway 170). His mother would be there to support her son, even after the hurtful comments that Krebs made towards her. It is hurtful in any form to see your children go through any pain and she would make sure that all could be done to get Harold back into the world.
One of the most significant is the sympathy for others and the need to help them. Many of the characters in Sarah’s Key feel they need to ammend for the past, sometimes even when they had nothing to do with it. Julia feels the need to find out everything she can about Sarah and her family; she feels sorry for “being 45-years old and not knowing.” Edouard feels the need to financially help the Dufaure’s and Sarah. He may not be ethically or morally responsible for sending money, but he feels that it may be one small way he can contribute. Because secrets are everywhere, the story lends itself to suggesting that everyone has some form of secret, even the most established first-world countries and even the most severe and committed people.
Musing and sighing arms across." (Act 2, Sc 1 line 239-240) She says she wants to know what is distressing him, but he won 't answer her, and as not to irritate him she did not question further.

Whenever confronted by a problem, his “hero complex” is the one to dictate his actions. Knowing that he is primary source of dependence for Setsuko after losing their mom, he takes up the responsibility in taking care of her. Seita wants to be a hero for his younger sibling, even if meant disregarding the help of better authority. This is quite evident in the scenes leading up to his departure from the shelter of his aunt’s house. Despite his nationalist view, he doesn’t take upon any responsibility to help the country by finding a job or serving in the fire brigade, which was a trait his aunt despised.
For most part of the book they appear to have more than what most of the other characters do not have-friendship. George and Lennie look out for each other. However I believe that they were still lonely. Lennie is simply too dim to realize that the lifestyle they is living is not ideal. George on the other hand realizes this and sees Lennie as a burden as he has to constantly look out for Lennie.
Harleys feels for that person and pictures himself feeling the same way. One of Harley’s main weaknesses is judging a person by their appearance and taking their stories to heart. The author describes this trait as being good hearted and worrying about the well being of others. His aunt spoke with him about the situation and he continued to make the same mistake. He is grown man and continues to make the same mistakes because he was not taught how to condition his
