When his oldest son, Lyons, comes around asking for ten dollars, Troy replies by saying,“ ‘I 'm just supposed to haul people 's rubbish and give my money to you cause you too lazy to work?’ ” (1, 19). Although he may come across as harsh, his intentions are good, as he wants his sons to be self-reliant like he has been since the age of fourteen, and know what it feels like to be proud an accomplishment. If he hasn’t taught his sons to live on their own, then he has failed as a

This shows his ability to accept his responsibilities and not squander money on a pig that would never produce offspring or

Elie relentlessly gives his ration of bread and soup to his father, trying to keep him alive. Food begets nourishment, satisfaction, and occasionally happiness; to Elie food compels worry, seeing that his father fades regardless of how much he’s given. A meager decision shows his maturity, few children his age put forth the effort to show care for their parents, much less to keep them viable. Elie’s relationship with Shlomo grows stronger through their experiences until death. The little, European boy transforms from living as Elie Wiesel to surviving as A-7713, but his relationship with his father alters from essentially the silent treatment to a genuine love.
Another example of the importance of material wealth is shown when Harry teaches True Son to help plow the land, which is another form of material wealth. Harry Butler loves his farm and praises True Son when he plows for the first time (Richter 74,75). Harry also takes care of his business in his ledger to calm himself. He wishes that True Son would understand the concept of money and business (Richter 68& 70). This evidence supports the fact that Harry wanted True Son to share in the business and have a part in what Harry valued the most- his success and his money.
Johnny’s a tragic hero because he strives to be a good person and to help others in need; Johnny enlisted in the Vietnam war to “better” his life. In the play people considered johnny as a good person because he helps his father out with the field. Johnny was only 8 years old when he started working like a man; therefore his father feels very proud of him for helping the family. For example, in scene three shows us how he helped out “pass, I already pick 20 trays, paapa”! (Valdez, page 631) That
Life should be about learning everything you want to learn. If you want to learn how to write, you should write and if you want to learn how to read then you should read. That's what Atticus is doing, he's being a good father because he's teaching his kids how to read and write. Atticus is intelligent, non racist, and teacher-like. Atticus is intelligent because he's a lawyer which he says “ every lawyer gets at least one case”.
One of the first words children learn to say is “daddy.” This is one of the earliest signs that fathers play extremely large and important roles in their children’s lives. Part of the father’s role that can make or break the relationship with his child is the expression of fatherly love. Reuben Land of Peace like a River receives a constant stream of affection from his dad Jeremiah. In fact, the righteous Jeremiah Land is a near-perfect example of pure, fatherly love and even more so an example of God’s love for His children. Jeremiah isn’t just a tender father to Reuben; he treats his other children Swede and Davy with the same passion he shows Reuben.
This is related to A Christmas Carol because in the story, the employee of Scrooge, Bob, had very low pay and could barely afford to keep his family, especially his handicapped son. Even though Bob had a very low wage, he and his family were happy. I think that Dickens was trying to encourage all of the people who lived in poverty to try and do their best to be happy. A cultural relationship that influenced the story was family. Many of the main families
Deo wanted to understand what had happened to him in his past in Burundi and wanted to question his life in order to find answers by remembering his past and relying on philosophy to help him. As a young boy, Deo understood the importance of cows to his family and the pride it gave to own cows to many families as well. Even though Deo was poor, he lived better than other families and worked hard; he did labor work in order to bring food to the table for his family and himself. As he grew up, he went to school and had eventually become a third year medical student. After a while, his whole world changed when he experienced the civil war and genocide in Burundi.
Although St. Mary 's inmates received an education, students were also expected to learn work skills and help operate the school, particularly once the boys turned 12. Ruth became a shirtmaker, and was also proficient as a carpenter. He would adjust his own shirt collars, rather than having a tailor do it, even during his well-paid baseball career. The boys, aged 5 to 21, did most work around the facility, from cooking to shoemaking, and renovated St. Mary 's in 1912. The food was simple, and the Xaverian Brothers who ran the school insisted on strict discipline; corporal punishment was common.
On the other hand, Pollux was the younger of the brothers and he was a good person and tried to find the good in everyone. He would always help the poor by leaving some of the food aside for them and would give them his old clothes that he grew out of. The years went by and the brothers were the same. The villagers gave them nicknames, Jekyll and Hyde and whenever anyone saw the two they would call them by their nicknames. As the two were in their elderly stage, they packed their things and went on a journey.
