People say “the best things in life come free”, and I think this is a good way of explaining a child. Now I am not saying that children are free of costs, because they are not, but any small gestures a child does can go a long way in a mothers heart. In the poem it states how when the boy gave his mother the lanyard that she basically accepted it as a gift of repayment: “I was as sure as a boy could be that this useless, worthless thing I wove out of boredom would be enough to make us even” (Collins

Although Doodle is accepted by his mom, and dad, he does not acknowledge it. He only wishes to be accepted by the one person in his immediate family who does not accept him, his brother.

In the short story, The Scarlet Ibis, by James Hurst makes you think about what is truly from the goodness of the brother character’s heart or if he is just being selfish. Ever since Doodle was born, he had no hope from anyone. Brother was the first one to look past his disabilities and see that he had the potential to be normal. Although Brother has to care for Doodle and teach him how to walk, run, swim, and row, it was only because he was sick of giving all of his personal time to the little disabled boy who could not walk.
Similarly, both George Lopez and real fathers take critical backlash from their families. George Lopez grew up unaware of his father’s whereabouts, supposing that he was dead according to his mother’s word; therefore, every time Max, George’s son, mentions the void of his grandfather, George fabricates lies of him (Season two, Episode 1).

It tests them, and makes them learn that you have to be independent sometimes. For example, ¨I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep. But I was out of tears.

Elizabeths daughter, Mae Mobley, is resented and forgotten about because her mother doesn't think she is beautiful. Aibileen, taking care of her as if she were her own, is able to fill in these missing parts.
