Children are very impressionable people. Almost everything around them changes them in some way. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, the main characters, Scout and Jem, start out as little kids who spend their days making up stories and playing sill games.

“The line between good and evil is permeable and almost anyone can be induced to cross it when pressured by situational forces.” (Phillip Zombardo) William Golding, the author of a well known book, “Lord of the Flies”, beliefs what Phillip Zombardo said about good and evil. According to the book he wrote, he thinks that humans can very easily cross the line between good and evil. In the book, there is a group of boys that their ages range gets stranded on an island and they have to survive. But as time goes along, evil started to overwhelm them by situational forces. Therefore, they become like savage dogs and only think about killing.
As the story evolves, the children’s dread of the beast increases.

It’s a gift. The silence accepted the gift and awed them.” The previous passage demonstrates that the boys’ dismay of the Lord of the Flies is gradually growing.
As with all the other films in this soon-to-be tetralogy, Toy Story 2 is replete with scenes of Andy machinating all kinds of fictional scenarios, of which the toys are the primary actuators – including and especially the film’s opening scene. Sure, Andy clearly loves these toys and their play episodes are childhood-forming, but equally as important is what becomes of them after Andy tires and sets them aside. At that point, the toys assume the first kind of miscellaneous triviality, being messily strewn about Andy’s room until such time that he again has use for them. Variegated as they are, the toys are shoved under and/or tossed on top of the bed, nestled into a random drawer, emplaced in a windowsill, or even deserted altogether and left on the floor in the very same spot they last were, unworthy of even being relocated. In that sense, they are miscellanies inasmuch as they are infinitely placeable and replaceable, themselves having no definite order to their disposal.
People are often scared of monsters when they are young, but once they grow older and mature, they begin to realize that the idea was made up in their heads. However, some people are so set on the theory of there being mythological creatures that they do not think of the possibility of actual people being monsters instead. We like to believe that we live in a world where none of us are sane and our behavior is superb. When in reality, it is the opposite. We do not realize how much hatred, rape, and violence there is in the world.

Atticus proves to be a truly important character in the novel. He teaches his children to accept others no matter how they seem.
1. All stories seem to agree that children are chaotic and illogical to the brink of destruction, but ultimately contain the rawest form of humanity. I feel The Seven Day Terror demonstrates the randomness most evidently as Clarence actions are quite random, whilst original tied to some obscure form of logic, what has value to him, it moves quickly away from this as he started taking away houses, cars, and people. Maybe because they also held no value to him or anyone he truly cared about, or maybe because he simply can – because it’s fun. He and Anthony of It’s a Good Life, are both representations of what children do when in possession of power.
