Being a traditional parent doesn’t mean parenting exactly like others; doesn’t everyone have their own parenting style? In the novel To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Atticus Finch is a prime example of an unusual parent; he shows his kids when and when not to let pride stand in the way of whats right as well as treating people with respect despite their differences. Atticus portrays an example of a good parent. To begin, pride is one of the main reason a man/women will stand up for what is right when they know it is wrong; they will always do the right thing to help out others. Atticus — the father to Jem and Scout— teaches is children just that.
The way he handles his kids is his own business because it works for him. He teaches his kids the right things to do, how to treat people, and to look at everyone the same, and he expects them to do so. Jem and Scout are not perfect; however, they respect their father. On the other hand, Atticus is doing better than his sister, Aunt Alexandra. Francis was a racist, mean, little girl that only cares about her last name.
They realize their father, Atticus, is much more interesting than he seems by witnessing him shoot a mad dog. Jem and Scout also realize that Boo Radley is kind and thoughtful, not insane and evil after having some interactions with him. Jem discovers that his dad isn’t perfect by watching him lose a trial that he was certain to win. Finally, Jem and Scout find out that Mrs. Dubose is trying to quit morphine, and she isn’t just a grumpy old woman. The theme of perception versus reality may seem like it is only applicable in books like To Kill a Mockingbird, but it is actually more prolific in our lives than it seems.
From my own personal experiences, some unruly children only respect a firm spanking with the law prohibiting this practice of parenting it can cause children to go down the wrong path because they don’t have the proper respect for their parents which is where children are supposed to learn respect for an authoritative figure. As the snippet of the comment from Allison, 2014 would suggest it is necessary to spank a child this is evident when the text states “Many of the parenting books that dismissed spanking as wrong pushed that a parent should reason with a child. However, science has proven that due to brain development, it is impossible to reason with a four-year-old. A four-year-old is still developing the concept of cause-and-effect and the beginnings of understanding empathy. Only discipline, causing pain to the four-year-old (and by pain, I do not necessarily mean physical pain) teaches him/her what is allowed.” This comment backs what I stated about a child learning to respect authority.
The performance of every character in the movies was marvelous. The movie series improved as it advanced through the book series. From the first to eighth movie, the three characters Harry Potter, Hermione Granger and Ron Weasley started as a kid to teenagers. Their problems started to get more complex as they grew up throughout the movies. Even though the characters as kids were so young, they were able to personify the book characters.
Erik Erikson’s stage of psychosocial cognition describes the eight stages of a developing human being and how they should go through their lifecycle. The individuality stage meets and then describes the challenges that an individual would experience. I will try to explain how Forrest Gump will relate to Erikson’s stages of psychosocial development assumption. Forrest Gump perceive many motions as he developed throughout his life. We often coin these changes that Erikson mentions in this movie.
Avery differ from each other greatly in the Mildred D. Taylor’s historical fiction novel, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry. First, one set of parents owns their own land and has their children follow strict rules, while the other parents are sharecroppers that are unable to keep their children out of trouble. Also, Stacey’s personality differs from T.J.’s because he has a modest and loyal personality, and T.J. has egotistical and conceited traits. Most importantly, Stacey values honesty and always tells the truth, while T.J. could care less about being honest and lies to get himself out of trouble. Thus, Stacey Logan and T.J. Avery are two very different characters in Roll of Thunder, Hear My

As kids mature, they realize their parents have their faults and strengths; they inherit the strengths and learn from the faults. Holden Russet, a hard working father who strives to follow his moral compass, plays an influential role in Eddie’s growth; even at the age of twenty, Eddie discovers a lot about himself from the actions of his father. No dad wants to watch his son get bullied, so by refuting the disrespectful Greens Eddie’s service, Holden teaches his son that standing firm in the face of antagonists is necessary at times: “He gave an imperceptible shrug. ‘Now and again. Good residency is about having the power to ask someone to do something, but not necessarily exercising it.
He is the opposite of Bob Ewell. Not only is he a father to his children, he is also their best friend. Finch, a lawyer teaches by example; this is evident in ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, when Scout comes home from a hard day at school, Atticus encourages Scout and says "The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience" this is to help show Scout in a difference perspective. He treats his children with respect, doesn’t hit them and speaks to them as though they are adults. Atticus Finch knows that Tom Robinson was going to lose the court case, but that didn’t stop him from taking it.
