But while Father pushes ideals of toxic masculinity onto his son, Mother also pushed similar ideals on their daughter Nanny. When speaking with her daughter about how she felt about her husband’s decision to build a barn instead of a home, she seems to push the thought that women are nothing without men. She tells Nanny, “One of these days you’ll find out, an’ then you’ll know that we know only what men-folks think we do.” (Freeman 651) They go on to speak of how Adoniram treats the two of them, they realize that they are lucky that he does not force them to work and by most standards, they live good lives. But Nanny is marrying soon and though she has high hopes for how her husband will treat her, Sarah doesn’t seem to have high hopes. Aside from wanting her to be married in their house, preferably a nice house, and though it is never explicitly stated, it seems as though Sarah realizes that she has to set an example for her daughter and prove that women are more than what men define them to
He chose the right decision of covering up her accident, by acting out of pure love for her as a father to daughter. Throughout the whole story, Luke has had rituals in his house that he does to bring his spiritual relationship between him and God closer. At the end of the story, Luke also attempts to talk to God to justify his actions after the occurence. Luke tries to convince God and argue that he has never had a daughter of his own, so of course, he doesn’t know what it’s like. But, Luke is asked if he loves his daughter more than himself, because it would be a ‘love in weakness’, however God is reminded that it is similar to his love of humankind.
This change in his life gives him a purpose, and it allows him to have a possibility to grow as a better human. In addition, the moor tries to cuts a deal with Lucius in order to save his child's life, promising to reveal the entire revenge plot if the Romans allow his child to live. Aaron proves his bravery because he spoke before the Goth Army and Lucius whom he had wronged. He says to Lucius, “save my boy, to nourish and bring him up; Or else I will discover nought to thee.” (Shakespeare 5.1.2219-20). He is selfless because he is giving up his life for his
Or are you a real father who’s having them? My thing is this; every father ought to be a good one, since the welfare and happiness of his children are at stake. It’s also hard to raise a child the way you would really want to when the system and negative things that are going on in society represent a major obstacle. Why so? Well, the Bible explains, “The whole world is lying in the power of the wicked ones.” The devil, Satan, is in control.
His mother Monica, a devout Christian herself, insisted that he be engaged to a young girl two years too young for marriage, necessitating the separation. Yet despite his sadness at her leaving, he “took another woman… and thus my soul’s disease ws nourished and kept alive as vigorously as ever, indeed worse than ever” (60). And as he imparts this knowledge upon the reader, he also points to Roman society’s open attitudes towards sexuality, something largely sinful in conservative Christian belief. It is accusatory, at times polite and at times not, and pulling further for the reader’s conversion, for they can see themselves in his
Freud also believed that children think that their fathers are stronger than they are and cannot be removed. This very recognition, Freud is of the view that these are the main causes of unconscious anxiety and frustration within children.

The first hint to his bias comes when Desiree says, “Oh, Armand is the proudest father in the parish, I believe, chiefly because it is a boy, to bear his name; though he says not,—that he would have loved a girl as well. But I know it isn’t true I know he says that to please me.” Armand places a male child on a higher pedestal than he would a female even though both are his flesh and blood. This is because a male is a viable heir who could carry his name, while a girl would one day marry off and take the name of another. The bias did not end there as he not only showed favoritism to a male heir, but furthermore controlled his wife’s mood, “When he frowned she trembled, but loved him. When he smiled, she asked no greater blessing of God.” Since Armand is in absolute control, his moods dictate how the rest of the household feels.
It was not enough for him that he had carried his own weight when living with his uncle, he also wanted to give back. The Prophet returned to Abu Talib and made a noble and dignified request. He asked for one of the children of Abu Talib so that he could raise him and care for him, just as his uncle had once done for him. Abu Talib agreed and gave him Ali, who would later be a great torch bearer of Islam. At an age where many young men are only thinking about themselves, the Prophet (Salallaho AlaiHe Wasallam)was already catching every opportunity to make the lives of others easier.

The prodigal son main characters, the father and the son has many differences, however they do favor each other. Now as I analyze this story, it does resemble God and his children and how his children can tend to be disobedient yet God forgives when asked.
