Huck quickly realizes he has no place in society, when Tom and him decide to start a gang. However, in order to become a member, one must consent to the murdering of their families if one breaks the rules. When one of the boys call out, “Here’s Huck Finn, he hain’t got no family, what you going to do ‘bout him?” Huck starts to realize that he has never had caring and loving parents that he would have to feel obligated not to kill (Twain 6). His father, who is known as the town’s drunk, has physically and mentally abused Huck all his life, which has given him no sense of direction. Huck describes the abusive and cruel relationship he has with Pap when he says, “He used to always whale me when he was sober and could get his hands on me; though I used to take to the woods most of the time when he was around”(Twain 9).

Moreover, Bender’s household is a distinct factor in his deviant behaviour. When re-enacting the conversation with his father, he portrayed his father as verbally and physically abusive. “Stupid, worthless, no-good […]” (Hughes, 1985) was the words his father used to describe him just before hitting him. Bender’s family often goes against societal norms shown when Bender explained that his father gives him cigarettes for Christmas (Hughes, 1875). Consequently, Bender does not have a strong understanding of what society expects of him, as his family, being his first agent of socialization, never taught him.
