An of the comparison rabbi Eliahu and His Son with Eli and His Father In the book, “Night” Rabbi Eliahu loved his father just as Eli love his father. No matter what was happening, their relationship’s were really strong. Their relationships weren 't that similar. Each father and son had their own struggles.
Eliezer and his father, like Yossi and Tibi, “live for each other, body and soul.” Throughout the novel their relationship is the only thing keeping them going, keeping them sane. After the death of his father Eliezer breaks down and almost gives up. Despite that Eliezer was incredibly fortunate, he had a relation to keep him going for much longer than many of the Jews forced into camps.

While Myra and all of Babbitt 's neighbors criticize the marriage, Babbitt secretly tells his son that he is proud of him for being his own person.
I think their friendship gives a realistic picture of friendships because they were always true to one another and wanted the best for each other. The four boys always supported each other through hard times. For example, Chris was very discouraged because the people of the town predicted that he would be a lowlife in the future just like his father. However, Gordie did not let that put down Chris, instead he encouraged Chris to also take college-level course to become something high and prove the public wrong. Female friendships are very similar to this.
Repeatedly throughout their journey, the father offers the son everything first because there 's not enough food to feed the both of them and the man knows he 's dying and he wants to make sure his son is well taken care of. The son accepts this fact but, he also takes care of his father as he says “You have some Papa. I want you to drink it, you have some” (McCarthy 23 & 78) . With this action, McCarthy was trying to show a true love relationship through character between father and son. Later on in the book, there was another very touching moment between the characters which also effectively underlined the theme.
“Caring - about people, about things, about life - is an act of maturity” -Tracy McMillan. This is a perfect quote to describe Huck. In these last few chapters of the book Huck forms a great bond with Jim. He looks to him as a father figure because he never looked to his real dad as someone he could trust.

I really enjoyed asking this question because my group was able to look back into the story. We were able to talk about Esperanza’s father was such a generous man to Miguel and his family. We also made a tangent to how Miguel was like Sixto’s son that he’d never had. This question opened up the door to the character of Esperanza’s father and how it still played a part in the characters’’ lives. 4.
Although they do not necessarily know each other, because of the years they were apart, the undeniably heavy emotion this greeting brought out of both men reveals the gravity of the situation and the strength of a father-son bond. Another important relationship is between Laertes and Odysseus. Odysseus and Laertes reunite after the suitors have been killed. Laertes is extremely happy because he saw his “son and grandson” and they “vie[d] for courage” (Homer 461). Odysseus and Telémachus brought honor back to their family because they displayed their strength and gallantry when they killed the suitors.
Most of the reason I love my dad so much is because he was harsh on me as a child. When I messed up he wouldn 't yell though, he would just explain how what I did was wrong and teach me how to be better. I was always a very patient child, I 'm not sure why or how I got to be that way but my dad made sure I knew he was proud of me. My dad had the hardest time teaching me to chew with my mouth closed and I still do it once in awhile on accident, but he always reminds me when I do. I think the most important thing my dad has taught me is to think everything through, my dad has given me wisdom I never would have found without him.
