This shows when Brother states, “Doodle and I spent lots of time thinking about our future” (Hurst). The story showed from the beginning that Doodle was in his Brother’s mind a lot. Brother wanted the best for his sibling because he didn’t want to be known as “the boy with the crippled brother”, but also, he wants Doodle to be able to enjoy the may gifts of life.
Throughout the letter Adams uses phrases like “my son” or “the son of your father.” Her purpose through this is to display to her son that he has nothing but support from both of his parents as he grows into the man he chooses to be. She explains that he is very fortunate to have “superior advantages,” meaning the wealth of their family, yet he should never stray from the morals that were taught to him from “a tender parent.” Adams concludes her letter with “…do honor to your country, and render your parents supremely happy, particularly your ever affectionate mother, A.A.” In this final sentence she includes everything that she expects from her son as he travels, learns, and becomes a
“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. This ultimately cause him to learn to support himself.
"Brother put lots of his time, effort, and care into Doodle even though "It's a miracle [he] didn't give up" (Hurst). His efforts showed the pride he had, or at least wanted to have in his younger sibling; even if it was rooted in selfishness. Pride is what motivated Brother to help him, though he wished it was his family which gave him the grit to always push Doodle to success. Brother
What Hans does every night shows us how much of a great father and a loving dad he does for his children. Liesel benefits from this because of the soothing of Hans taking away the nightmares and also it gives Liesel an idea of what a father really is and what they really sacrifice. Although fathers make sacrifices every day for their children, the usual fathers never wake up in the middle of their sleep to go nourish their children, but with Hans he is a different kind of person in that sleep doesn’t matter to him; what matters to him is his daughter and his loved
In this letter, Adams had a soothing tone that makes John know that she is not angry with him, and she is letting him know that she is lucky to have a son who gave her “pleasing hopes” (Adams). throughout their life and informs him that “Nothing is wanting with you but attention, diligence, and steady application” (Adams). to reassure him that he is special and will achieve great success in life. In conclusion, Abigail Adams wrote this passionate letter to her son to offer advice and support before he took on this massive journey traveling around the globe. She wanted to express to her precious son to take on any opportunity that the universe threw at him for he is not the only one with admirable qualities.

Harry is a good father figure due to his in involvement in his children’s lives, such as, he went trick or treating with his children .

All these qualities, depict how Harry is doing a good job as a father.
Peter had his dad, who’s memories kept him true and honest, but Thomas, who came from a broken family, that was hard on him and did not show him love, needed something to cling onto. He felt comfort in the Nazis and felt like they were his family because they cared for him and congratulated him on his success in school and accomplishments. Just like the kids who are too young for the Nike propaganda, Peter does not fall for the Nazi propaganda. When companies propagandize they tell you what they believe and want you to think the same way. People with strong opinions or believe strongly in their beliefs, like Peter, will not be affected by the bias propaganda because they do not want to believe anyone else 's way, but their
These many conflicts have had a very strong presence in my home and continue to despite my grandpa and his drinking routine no longer being present. My grandpa’s memories have always reinforced me to value what is good in life. From him I have learned to be a decent individual and to try to be my best self. Most of all, my grandpa has taught me to be a sensible person: a person who recognizes all and tries to stay true to himself, a person who is not entangled within his false reality where he is delusional of what is real. I hope to be someone who finds happiness in his own life and by no means resorts to
I would feel confused, since I could not think of a reason I would make fun of someone else. I would like for my children to fully understand just how rewarding and important it can be to simply show compassion towards other people. Hard work is easily one of the most important values one could have. Working hard plays a key factor in accomplishing any goal. However, working does not simply mean fulfilling the tasks one 's parents or school assign.
Nevertheless, as said already the Touhy family loved, supported, and cared for Michael. This is something Michael had never had before, and because of all of these things Michael had the drive and courage to keep moving forward. The Touhy family was the key for Michael to success. In the ABC News interview Collins Touhy said “I was Collins he was Michael and that was pretty much it…he was like a brother to me.” The whole family loved Michael for who he was, and it did not matter where he came from, or the color of his skin. All that mattered was that he knew they were there no matter
Also, I believe he had this confidence because he finally believed in himself and found his right place even if it did not conform to societal norms. I think Rosskam put in Logan to show the cisgender audience that it is difficult to get to that place where you are certain of who you are even if it isn’t what people expect from you. I also think Logan’s situation is a bit different because he has a supporting partner and two kids that live with him and one of them is autistic. I feel like Logan has to be a bit more feminine because he has this motherly bond with his children and he wants them to know that they will always have a mother no matter who he identifies as. To a transgender audience it will be something they can understand because they know how hard it is to
