Although Atticus is crucial to his children 's growth, he can’t give a “feminine” input which sometimes flaws his parenting, but Lee proves that good parenting requires a person to do the right thing, no matter the circumstances through fairness, perspective, and integrity. Atticus’ fairness displays he is a good parent because he considers that everyone deserves a chance to be understood and have motives for their actions. After disclosing the news to his son and daughter of Tom’s death, Atticus says, “Depends on how you look at it. What was one Negro, more or less, among two hundred of ‘em? He wasn’t Tom to them, he was an escaping prisoner” (Lee 235).

One fault was being too belittled by the realism of Bob Ewell’s threats. This essay will explain Atticus's strengths and weaknesses in To Kill a Mockingbird.

He told his kids the truth instead of avoiding their questions or lying to them like what most parent would do if something bad happens.
To begin, The change we see in Atticus’s perspective and moral values from To Kill a Mockingbird to Go Set a Watchman creates a lasting impact on how Scout sees her father who was once her role model, and the dynamics of their relationship that Scout values. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus is a honorable, intelligent, and courageous. Atticus cares about the moral upbringing of Jem and Jean Louise, but he allows his children to be individuals. In addition, Atticus teaches his children multiple life lessons. These lessons range from the respect of every individual to teaching Jean Louise and Jem a sense of morality and compassion.

These actions define Atticus’s character and shape his children into becoming the people they are. Atticus stands up for what he believes in by defending Tom Robinson and making Jem read to Mrs. Dubose; which influences his children become better people.

Jeremy Atticus Finch (Jem) is Scout 's older brother, and is another example of a mockingbird in the story. The theme to not kill a mockingbird is explored most powerfully through the relationship between Atticus and his children, as he devotes himself to instilling a social conscience in Jem and Scout. Jem’s transition from a perspective of childhood innocence, in which they assume that people are good because they have never seen evil, to a more adult perspective, in which they have confronted evil and must incorporate it into their understanding of the world. Jem moves into adolescence during the story, and his ideals are shaken badly by the evil and injustice that he perceives during the trial of Tom Robinson. Jem is victimized to an extent by his discovery of the evil of racism during and after the trial.
Some characters include Atticus, who always has his children and the town of Maycomb in mind and is willing to take the Tom Robinson case, despite the fact that he knew he was going to lose. Scout, a young girl who learns quickly about how her town works. As Scout grows, Harper Lee shows a more mature side of her.
