Boo made it eminent to the kids that he had all along been watching out `for them when he runs out and saves their lives; returning Jem home safely as well as Scout in the process.

You couldn’t if he was awake, though, he wouldn’t let you… Go on, sir, he’s asleep.” (Lee 372) This quote shows the prominence between how Scout was able to allow Boo into their lives so quickly knowing he overall was a good

Thoreau lived off the land, built his own home, hunted and fished his own food. Through these things, Thoreau experienced how life is lived without luxury and only with the raw basics.

Edwidge still has trouble telling her parents vital information in life because she neglected telling them for several scenes beforehand. Suárez-Orozco, Carola and Irina L. G. Todorova states, “Dario (a regular boy whom has experienced the transition of immigrating to live with his biological mother) presents contrasting identities—one in the context of the classroom, where he is shy, obedient, and minimally engaged, and another in the street, where he livens up and appears in control” (The Social Worlds of Immigrant Youth). Dario was separated from both his parents growing and lived with a relative but after emigrating from a community where he was raised to live with his mother but he often struggles to express or talk to others and his own mother. Which is similar to Edwidge
However, when Mark Twain stated that Huck still sleeps in the woods at times, it indicates that he still went back to the rules he used to live by at times. Possibly Twain himself struggled with switching between two locations in his life that had completely different rules than what he was familiar with. Later in the book, Huck tries to adjust to the lack of rules he had to follow when living with his father. Huckleberry Finn states, “... and it warn’t long after that till I was used to being where I was, and liked it, all but the cowhide part. It was kind of lazy and jolly, laying off comfortable all day, smoking and fishing, and no books nor study.

Both Frederick Douglas and Malcolm X were born into situations where they did not know much about or interact frequently with their parents. In Frederick Douglas’ case, he was separated from his mother when he was an infant, and he only saw her a few times when he was very young (Douglas 13-14). When it comes to Douglas’ father, all he knew of him was that he was a white man who may or may not have been his master (Douglas 13). Malcolm X’s mother was also separated from him when he was young because she was considered not fit to be a parent. Although it was for different reasons than Frederick Douglas’, Malcolm X also did not know his father as well as his mother.
Throughout Junior’s personal diary, he openly talks about his life with his family on the reservation and despite the gloomy descriptions, Junior manages to cover the misery with his honest humour, which also engages the implied readers with Junior’s personality. Junior explains his journey as he transfers from a Native American society to a European society. The novel shows that Junior doesn’t give up on what he believes in and wants the best for himself by transferring to Rearden. There are many passive messages about different races, socioeconomic statuses and genders. When Junior first meets Penelope, he doesn’t realise until later in the novel that they share life difficulties, and he realises that there is more to her than just her appearance.

My father went through a closed adoption when he was a baby. His adopted parents adopted him, for the thought of receiving money only to receive nothing.
When an object or a topic really grasps a person’s attention, no matter the age, they can be able to memorize it years after. As an infant, Garnet was already taught many things that have to do with the land, and every life within. While he was walking about in the woods for a hunt with his older brothers, he felt like he already knew where he was going and where

Theme 1: Family– In North Korean concentration camps and North Korea in general, there was no concept of “family”. Shin was born and raised in the concentration camp, and he did not have a loving or caring relationship with his mother, father, or brother. Shin even saw his mother as another competitor, and he rarely spoke or interacted with his brother. “When he was in the camp–depending on her [his mother] for all his meals, stealing her meals, enduring her beatings–he saw her as a competition for survival,” (16). Outside of the camps, North Koreans also turned in whoever spoke out or went against the leaders of the country, and their rule, even if it was their family members.
