I know he must find me tiresome, yet still I like spending time with my father very much more than I like doing anything else.” Leah wants her father “back” and is fed up with dealing with the constant commands from
Greenacre() states that the psychopath as a child is overly attached to both parents, but more so to the mother. The mother would naturally love the child more, however in the case of the psychopath, the mother is filled with shame and guilt towards the child (p.507). This factor is clear in the cases of each psychopath because, according to Greenacre(), the mother “indulged, favored, and defended, but was indubitably ashamed of the little one…” (p.507). The father 's role in the psychopathic child is “nonexistent” because the father is often preoccupied with his work. The father tends to place power and fear into the child from young age.

She is tasked with the unfair role of caring for her family and looking for her dad. She could have given up, but her unconscious fear and lack of trust of men, left her to juggle both.

She identifies the unequivocal resemblance between Sonny and Blond Milton in that they have a “punishing spirit” (Woodrell 8).
