With all the years the father has missed, he wants to be a part of her life more. Young’s dad is trying to be a better figure to her by “...smooths and sands as filling in all of the empty crevice (15-16)” this allows the narrator’s dad to have a better relationship and get to know her better. “... Father of mine whose love keeps him moving from room to room (23-25)” even though the narrator’s dad doesn’t express his love towards his daughter he is starting to work on it now. In “The Gold Mountain Coat” the relationship that Sam Sing, has with his sons John and Ken, is very unhealthy. Sam is very selfish dad who never shows any love for them.
Bilbo had to decide whether to be a hero or stay home and be respected by other hobbits. The song that I choose was “Luxury” by Jon Bellion, where he struggles with himself getting lost in the fame and not being his true self, “don’t let my soul drown in luxury”. This is his internal conflict which relates to Bilbo choosing to be who he wants to be and also finding his true self. “the mother of this hobbit--of Bilbo Baggins, that is-- was the famous Belladonna Took”.

“Why is Pops so mean?” He does not see the benefits of working hard and being paced, but only the pressure and the burden his shoulders cannot carry. This relationship between Andre and his father is very much dominated by the authority his father possesses. The father is strict and consistent, especially when it comes to training. He does not share much about himself and his childhood and it is only when Andre’s grandmother begins to tell stories that the father reminisces and opens up. Andre Agassi’s father is very much like his own mother.
Thirdly, in Everything I Never Told You, the Lee kids, and particularly Lydia, were not as popular as the other kids, they were not invited to go out on the weekends, they never to birthday parties, and they were not the recipients of after school phone calls to chat about the drama that happened at school that day. During lunch, “Lydia sits silent while others chatter,” because they are not really her friends (Ng, 15). Hurt by the fact that no one will be friends with her due to the fact that she is a different race, Lydia “sits for hours on the window seat on the landing” pretending she is on the phone with friends when, in reality, she is “rattling off assignments” to herself with no one on the other end of the call (Ng, 15-16). The malefactors of these discriminatory and xenophobic acts, whether they were
Frank McCourt is held back by an alcoholic father and a depressed, helpless mother. When he is old enough, Frank is finally able to acknowledge his parents problems: “I know when Dad does the bad thing. I know when he drinks the dole money and Mam is desperate and has to beg at the St.Vincent de Paul Society” (McCourt 208). On the rare occasions when money is present in the McCourt household, Malachy thinks of himself before his family and is not responsible in regards to putting the money to good use. As opposed to buying food, upgrading their house, or saving the money for later, it goes to waste at the bar and gives Angela no other option but to resort to asking charity organizations for assistance.
Heron since he didn’t deliver the message. Soon Tim forgets about the letter. The food is still short but that didn’t affect the Meekers. They received two letters from Sam; it displayed the high spirit of the troops but their bad conditions. And as a forum of discipline father did not want to send a letter back to Sam, but Sam’s mother felt bad for Sam and decided to write back regardless of her husband’s disapproval.
His brother had Polio. “In the evenings he watched his father eat in silence, hoping for-but never getting- a show of affection, communication, warmth. At nine years old, he felt as if the weight of a mountain was on his shoulder.” This passage from Tuesdays with Morrie shows that he was missing the love and affection a parent gives to a child at a young age. Feeling alone at that young age shaped him into the extrovert that was able to express his emotion because he did not want his children to grow up feeling unloved. His stepmother, Eva had brought a more positive aura in the household because she was more talkative and caring as it was discussed and described in the memoir.
His first step towards following this alternative is by accepting the invitation to Johnny 's banquet, thus feeling that might be a way of overcoming the barrier that had sprung up between them. He wants to condense the distance between them, unfortunately, he lately perceives that he has a huge lack of knowledge about his son. There is the proof in the story that mentions "he didn 't even know what position his own son played or even the name of the team" (page 6) and "he seemed to know less about the boy than anyone" (page 7). Hence, it brings a disconnection in the father-son relationship, besides, it isolates him from the banquet, which is the root of his subsequent mistakes. Likewise, while he feels so lost at the banquet, he gives an egregious option of drinking alcohol.
His family being in poverty made him an outcast at his new school. Whenever he’d go out with his white friends he couldn't do many things like his friends could because he didn't have the money to do so. Rearden being a school for wealthy whites didn't stop the poor Indian boy. His white friends were very understanding of the fact that he was poor and didn't treat him like anything less after they found
Scout although doesn’t wears britches. As said before that was frowned upon. Women’s family roles were also different than men’s too. Women in the South typically stayed at home and took care of the children. A woman’s purpose in life was to “become a wife and mother.” There is an absence of this in Scout and Jem’s lives since their own mother died.
If they did, neither the man nor the woman would be allowed to marry again.” (page 17) Shin also didn’t really get along with his parents. In order to try and survive, he stole his mother’s food. “...Shin took as much food as he could from his mother as often as he could. It did not occur to him that if he ate her lunch, she would go hungry.” (page 16) Education in the camp found
