When people make choices that could drastically change their life, the decision they make is based on the influence of others. In the novel The Outsiders by S. E Hinton a gang called the Greasers is stereotyped for being the mean types that slack off at school. Then there are the Socs who are the rich kids with cool cars that happen to like jumping greasers. As these two gangs are going at each other, they both go through so dramatic events that change their perspectives on life. In the novel The Outsiders by S. E. Hinton the character Darrel Curtis is unquestionably influenced by his gang as it prevents him from being successful, to becoming the father of the gang, and overall being someone to look up to.
Do you think Ben Dover is a name you want to have in a middle school locker room? No child should ever have to deal with the consequences of a stupid name. Yes I know that making fun of someone’s choice of name is a wrong thing to do but come on, we were all thinking it. The names we pick for our children should symbolize something, maybe a bible name because you are religious, or a name of a lost relative, or simply just the same name as the father or mother. These names stick with us throughout our whole life—which frankly if my name was Ben Dover, it would be changed in a heartbeat—it needs to be something we are proud to call ourselves and our children.

Even before that, because he was an orphan, he most likely had to provide for himself. Being thrown into such an important role required him to be strong, and to be strong, Griffith suppressed his emotions.

This suppression would eventually lead to a complete lack of understanding about his own feelings, developing a childlike and impulsive mentality.

Ender had already gone through so much pain, even though he was a lot younger than the rest of them. Since he has been though that pain, he does not want to have to go through it again, so he will put that pain towards others and will not take the other toon leaders trying to beat him.

For illustration, John always used the idea that Johnny was "only a twelve-year-old who wants to be left alone" (page 3) to excuse his misgiving. He showed his shortage of fatherhood through the flashback that John agreed to have Johnny held back a year in school, straightforwardly owing to his selfish want to leave the school, which is the genesis of their poor relationship.
