At first, he had no idea about the magical world and his past. He used to live with his cruel Aunt Petunia, Uncle Vernon and their spoiled son Dudley because Voldemort had murdered his parents, Lily and James Potter, when he was 1 year old. The Dursleys who were all muggles (non-magic) were ashamed of being related to a witch. They never mentioned to Harry how his parents really died and they never told him that he was a wizard. Until he was 11, Harry was being bullied by the Dursleys he was responsible for house chores and his room was the closet under the stairs.
“A Spartan father had no right to decide whether to rear his newly born son or not.” (Document A) If his son was healthy, he would be sent away at seven years old to train for the military he would soon be apart of. If his son was not healthy, he would be left outside to die. This puts strain on a family, causes grief for the siblings, and is very distressing for the mother. Another disadvantage of Sparta's military is that the boys only learned reading and writing to a certain extent, since their military was their main priority. According to Document D, “The Spartans learned to read and write for purely practical reasons: but all other forms of education they banned from the country,...” If an man wasn’t interested in fighting and wanted a strong education, he was simply out of luck since in Sparta, killing others was more important than schooling.
The purpose of this essay is to analyze its stereotypes against Tourette projected by the media through its characterization.

Meanwhile, his divorced mother was very supportive and helped him to find the solution to his Tourette’s.
These were young men whose lives started off rough and got worse throughout time. Ted Bundy was an outsider always trying to fit in but his quick temper pushed friends away from him (Hammon). He felt as though since he got abandoned at a very young age and didn’t have anyone to have as a true friend to stick with him when things got rough so he resorted to violence. While on the other hand, Donald use to constantly fight in school. He dropped out at the age of eleven, which lead to the beginning of his hatred against people, but women evidently more (Montaldo, “Donald “Pee Wee” Gaskin”).

Willy was unable to achieve the American Dream, so he pushed it upon his sons, especially Biff, which caused more issues in their lives. Willy’s severe beliefs in untrue things created suffering for everyone in his family. The American Dream worked for some people at the time, but not all, and Arthur Miller made that very clear throughout the text. Americans may not always experience the success and wealth that is sought
The authors makes this clear when Dane claims “People shouldn't treat you different just because you`re -whatever- challenged or something.” Despite the first impression one gets from Dane he redeems himself throughout the novel as it is proven that he is just misfortuned kid whose life was full of difficulties. With a deadbeat dad, a mom who won the lottery every time she played yet decided not to cash the money or “her luck would run out” resulting in them struggling to pay rent each month and an “itch” in the palm of his hand to become violent every time he was provoked, Dane had a hard life ever since he was a child. In many stories bullies are represented as heartless, they only add to the suffering of the main character and are perceived as vile, malicious. The audience doesn't get to see the darkness that made the oppressor become who they are, how a series of misfortunate events led to a situation which seems impossible to get out of, or so it seems, the author explains this when Dane says “I didn't get chummy with the kids at school, either. I was always too embarrassed to invite any of them to see our ugly house and meet my crazy mom.I was waiting-until we moved to a house with a kitchen floor that didn't peel, until Mom stopped framing lottery tickets- but nothing ever changed, and by the time I realized it wasn't going to change, I`d
Not only was he neglected by his friends, Scrooge was also, in some sense, neglected by his father. He’d been sent away from home at a very important time of the year, and this obviously would have made the reader sad, knowing that Scrooge really didn’t have anybody whilst growing up. Perhaps not only was Dickens trying to tell the readers that pushing away people and isolating yourself was bad, but it was also bad to neglect and dismiss people because it often led to people such as
(The Shining, 30) Danny wonders if he would leave things would get better for his parents. The parents don’t appreciate the knowledge their son possesses as it disrupts their intellectual authority over their child. As explained in ‘The Gothic Child’, ‘excess feelings of bitterness’ prevail when a child is deserted by ‘their immoral, neglectful parents’ (Georgieva: 2013, p. xi). This links directly to Danny’s relationship with his father, as the possibility of Jack’s alcoholism and aggressive tendencies resulting in divorce is ‘the greatest terror of Danny’s life’, and in the source of great anxiety for him. This is further suggested as Danny first unlocks his psychic abilities whilst sensing the extreme strain on his parents’ marriage and “desperately… concentrating to understand” (Shining 40), further reiterating the relationship between neglectful familial relationships and the child’s susceptibility to the
