Another example of Holden caring for children is in the middle of chapter 25 when he sees profanity on the wall, he describes, “I thought how Phoebe and all the other little kids would see it, and how they’d wonder what the hell it meant” (Salinger 200). This is another example of Holden wanting to help children and keep them protected. This shows that Holden has good intentions and deserves readers’ compassion. In summary, Holden’s wish to keep children safe shows his good character and worthiness of
Remarkable Woman Response My response to this article about Suskind is she 's doing a great thing. Giving these kids who under different circumstances would be deprived of something that they needed for survival or to appreciate things that the rest of us take for granted things like: music, laughter, even the voice of a loved one. While I do agree with what she 's doing I can 't help think about the ramifications that will come from this like what some doomsday people claim is the singularity when man and machine combine into one. From a sociological standpoint, this has ramifications that will not only offer an opportunity to learn languages, but also will help them in a culture that passes on the tradition through stories and songs that are part of the symbolic interaction this may also affect their Social inequality for being a disabled member as well as their role in the community. This would help with the Assimilation back into the general populace.
Harry Potter himself is a good role model for all children because he has overcome all the hardships that has come his way. Harry Potter can also be a person to sympathize with as he lost his parents to Voldemort at such a young age. He faced his fears, believed in his friendship, and the pure in the world. Reading the Rowling’s books lured children away from technology making them focus on the story itself with all its humor, adventure and friendship. But Harry Potter is not the only person who has made an impact in this series.
“Sid choked me with his left hand as he held me against the tiled wall of the boys’ restroom, and pummeled me. I thought I was going to die”. Tears sprung from my eyes, as I narrated this to my mom, one afternoon after school in the spring of 7th grade. To set the context of this incident, let me first share a minor eccentricity about myself. In elementary school, I was a socially reticent kid who enjoyed building Lego airplanes, solving the Rubik’s cube, and had an obsession with astronomy.
Ezinma and Chielo are able throughout the novel to voice their ideas with a kind of authority and power even in the presence of males. The first, Ezinma, is Okonkwo’s daughter which he praises for being ‘tougher’ than her brother, Nwoye. Due to this, Okonkwo cannot hide his regret and disappointment of her being born a girl, for he expresses that he would be happier if she were a boy (ibid: 48). However, the presence of Ezinma and her relation with Okonkwo can be considered as a means to show the positive side of Okonkwo’s character, for when she fell sick, her father spends a whole night preparing medications for her (ibid: 72). From this perspective, Ezinma’s character is used to show the emotional side of Okonkwo and his ‘manhood’.

Being able to tell someone all your problems and difficulties helps release unnecessary anger and builds up trust. In the story, Augie’s parents are very passionate and affectionate towards him, which leads me to believe that Augie’s mother may be too protective and caring towards her son. This is not a bad thing, however, being exposed to forms of discipline and criticism helps shape a child’s character and teaches it to not be spoiled. Augie has not been exposed to this type of discipline, leading to a slight selfishness, and a belief that he is always correct. It is understandable that his mother treats him with all the passion she contains, but sometimes children need to understand that the reality is much harsher than it seems.
They were very close to each other, so Nel finds in Sula the childishness and the fun that she does not have, and Sula finds instructions and strength in Nel.

Sula is somehow acting like her mother.
This is a really intriguing story. I enjoyed Dixon’s conflict even though at points I thought he was kind of a douche because of the thoughts he had with his wife or son. Still, I understood him at the same time. There are a lot of men in this story so the use of he and him gets confusing without saying who the narrator is talking about. On page 2, it says “The baby looks like him” who Dixon or Logan?

In "The Yellow Wallpaper," Charlotte Perkins Gilman suggests through characterization that even if a practical husband is lovingly motivated when he imprisons and restrains his wife 's imaginative expression, he may drive her to an exhausted insanity. In “Gimpel the Fool,” Singer suggests through characterization that those who are called fools, but respond to deceit with belief can expect to find joy in heaven; whereas those who foolishly
In the short story “Tomorrow’s Child,” Ray Bradbury describes the lives of Peter and Polly Horn, and their newborn son Py. Although Py was blue and shaped like a pyramid, Peter and Polly accepted him as their son; furthermore, their love for Py was so unyielding that they decided to venture to the fourth dimension in order to be with him. However, Polly originally found difficulty in calling a blue pyramid her son and wanted Py to emerge out of the fourth dimension. Polly quickly spiraled into anguish and, if not for her husband and Dr. Wolcott, may have never accepted Py as her son. Bradbury illustrates the story of Py, Polly, and Peter by establishing the theme of parental attachment and relinquishment, showing internal and external conflicts, and having Polly develop over the course of the
