To the children, so much as entering the front yard of the Radley house is a terrifying feat. At this time, the children do not understand Boo’s situation, as they have yet to meet him and know little about him apart from the stories. In the end, the children learn that Boo has been watching them all along and has even been a helpful presence in their lives. He was the one who left gifts in the tree outside the Radley yard for Scout and Jem, and he gave Scout a blanket during the fire. More importantly, however, Boo was the mysterious figure who saved the Finch children from Bob Ewell’s attack.
After this incident, Taylor was convinced that she can’t take care of Turtle since she couldn’t keep her safe from the world. According to The Bean Trees, “…That they have the right to take her out of a perfectly good home and put her in some creepy orphanage where they probably make them sleep on burlap bags and feed them pig slop”(Kingsolver 235). Even though, Taylor believed that she can’t keep Turtle safe from this society where people try to hurt a child so young, on the other hand, Lou Ann thinks that Taylor can keep Turtle safer than anybody else. According to Abuse in America, “As of September 30, 2004, there were 517,000 children in foster care in the United States” (“Abuse in America”). This shows that people that are living the way that Lou Ann has described is not safe for children, not to mention that lots of people, because of poverty put their children

Aunt Alexandra hasn’t even met Walter Cunningham yet but is already judging him. She knows that he is a lower “social class” than the Finches and thinks that Walter will be a bad influence on Scout so she forbids Scout from playing with him.
Worried and frightened for the two, Scout had no other choice but to join them. Although Scout was scared of coming back to the Radley Place, she gathered her courage and went along with Jem and Dill’s Plan. As the three kids were sneaking out, remaining and maintaining silence was a challenge. Sneaking out of the house took a lot of courage for the three kids because they were already told off by Atticus to ignore how the Radley’s way of living and about Boo Radley. If ever they were caught by Atticus sneaking out to take a look at Boo Radley at night, they would probably have to face the consequences.

In addition, this developments in Jem’s feeling suggest that people can change toward others that differ from us getting to know them better. For example, in chapter 4 page 44 Jem tells Scout “‘Don’t you know you’re not supposed to even touch the trees over there? You’ll get killed if you do.’” but after, in chapter 7 page 80 Jem states “we found a whole package of chewing gum, which we enjoyed, the fact that everything on the Radley Place was poison slipped Jem’s memory.”
The reason this painting is named “Crop Failure” is because columbine is also the name of a flower. Crop is being used to represent harvest and bringing up children in the correct way. Harris and Klebold are two examples of crop failure because they were brought up very poorly. Instead of blaming the parents, the farmers who harvested them in this instance, people would rather blame the entertainers. The parents do not want to acknowledge that they are not showing their children love or raising them properly, so they would rather condemn heavy metal or violent video games instead.
