He is not controlling his children’s futures. He makes it so that they can grow up the way they want to. Scout hangs out with Jem and Dill often and she acts like a boy. Most of the women in maycomb does not like it, especially her aunt. So she convinces Atticus to tell Jem and scout to live up to their names of the Finches.
White people feel like everything is their property. Prejudice means preconceived opinion that is not based on reason or actual experience. One prejudice thing is how they say that Atticus don’t like guns, but somehow he the best shooter in Maycomb. The kid’s at Scout school were prejudice against her father calling him a “nigger lover.” Then Scout became prejudice against Atticus because she found out that he was protecting a negro. Scout also thought that Atticus didn’t do anything as an old man, she thought Atticus was lame and that he older than most of the parents.
Many people forget the simplistic and common values that their child selves once held; values such as innocence and bliss, which children have always had since humans have walked the Earth. Their inability to see the harsher side of life has inspired many tales and exciting adventures from their point of view, which always adds an interesting way of thinking about the world. People so often lose this innocence that they fail to see and admire some of the things only kids can see. This much and more is most certainly true of Jean Louise Finch, the narrator and main character of Harper Lee’s famous book, To Kill a Mockingbird. Jean Louise, also known as Scout in the story, has many admirable qualities as a kid because she has the ability to think beyond herself and shows courage to the people around her.
One of many reasons why Atticus is a great father to his children is because Atticus teaches Jem and Scout good moral attributes that would play a major role in learning critical life lessons. As Scout is slowly growing up
Grace’s relationship with John changes to they aren’t going to talk again, luckily John apologizes and they continue to know each other. Smitty never had the chance to be friends with Michael ever again. The two may never see each other again. Michael betrayed Smitty, he didn’t throw the fish but Smitty didn’t know that. Michael was felt incredibly shameful when he saw the “expression on Smitty’s face when he saw the fish on the road (Callaghan, Page 8).” Michael’s biggest fault was not helping Smitty out when he was given the chance.
Stewie’s goals in life are to kill his mother Lois and take over the world with his physics and mechanical engineering mindset, he does not have a strong bond with his father and the siblings and Lois. His best friends are his talking dog Brian and his teddy bear Rupert (‘family guy’, 1999). The Griffin children each have developmental issues due to the way in which their parents treat them, Meg is being neglected and it has affected the first few stages of her development because she does not trust her family due to the fact that they make fun of her, she has no interpersonal relationships at school and at home and this has resulted in her not being able to having a concept of self and not being able to form relationships, her parents have displayed and uninvolved parenting style as they do not pay attention to her and are always shutting her out. Chris seems to be suffering from mental retardation because his mom was drinking and smoking whilst he was still in the womb and this has resulted in Chris not trusting his mother, he is lacking in self-confidence due to his weight, he is not able to form relationships at school and he is unpopular, his parents display an authoritative parenting style towards him because they show him some warmth and Peter spends some time with
1 priority for most parents. We’re much more concerned about our children becoming kind, compassionate and helpful,” (Carnahan 55). This is completely accurate in Stark’s mentality as he wants to see his children be happy and live a delightful
Atticus’s different parenting techniques are due to his omniscient knowledge and wisdom of children’s thoughts and actions. This allows him to raise his kids in a way he seems best fit. They are raised almost in a way that mentally prepares them for their future life and surviving life through the time of the trial. In a way to teach them to understand people and be wise themselves. Atticus also shows great wisdom by teaching Scout about the concept of empathy.
Scout realizes that she hasn’t done enough for Boo and feels bad for accusing him of being a monster. “Neighbors bring food with death and flowers with sickness and little things in between. Boo was our neighbor. He gave us two soap dolls, a broken watch and chain, a pair of good-luck pennies, and our lives. But neighbors give in return.
When Scout embarrasses Walter for pouring syrup all over his food, Calpurnia punishes Scout for the disrespectful way she treated Walter. By doing this, Calpurnia ignored the social class order for she believes that ‘guests no matter who they are must be treated well’. On the other hand, when Scout wants to invite Walter Cunningham over a second time under Aunt Alexandra’s supervision, Aunt Alexandra makes it very clear that it would be an inappropriate invitation because according to the social order of Maycomb, ‘he is trash’. By Calpurnia allowing Walter to visit and Aunt Alexandra forbidding Walter to visit, the social prejudice system is made obvious. Calpurnia also allows Scout to wear overalls whereas Aunt Alexandra encourages Scout to wear dresses as it is more ladylike.
