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.

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

“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. We never put back into the tree what we took out of it: we had given him nothing, and it made me sad” (373).
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. This is once again an example of how these two women are involved in social prejudice; Calpurnia is trying to do what is best for the children when Aunt Alexandra is only trying to obey the social class order.

Atticus showed courage by accepting the Tom Robinson case, by standing his ground at the jailhouse, and by standing up to Aunt Alexandra about Calpurnia.
