If they do not do what he says or what he believes in, he punishes them. Punish I would say is an understatement since what he does to them is abuse. An example of this is when Eugene confronts Kambili about the fact that she knew her grandfather was coming to Nsukka but she did not inform her father. Her father is against it because her grandfather is a heathen.
A lot, it seems. Much like any child, even a supposedly surefire nugget of an idea requires careful nurturing. In this case, “The Boss Baby” often tries too hard and succeeds too little. Part of the problem is its source material, Marla Frazee’s 36-page picture book from 2010 whose irresistible premise transformed it into a go-to shower gift. It boiled down to a precious metaphor about how a new baby in a business-suit onesie treats his parents like harried employees, conducting middle-of-the-night meetings and squalling constant demands.

Although he eventually grew tired and lost the final battle against Nurse Ratched, he ultimately won the war for the men. He gave them the freedom to rebel against Nurse Ratched and leave the ward, and he also helped them rediscover their sexuality. I saw his influence as most prominent during the fishing trip, in which he left the men to fend for themselves and provided little guidance, and during the final drinking party. However, after a thought-provoking discussion with a few of my classmates, I realized that the issue was a lot more complex. To apply the “winning the battle but losing
For example, if Stephen were to be mad at Keiko for their break up instead of being kind and understanding, keeping his emotions all to himself; Stephen would have influenced Keiko in a bad way, not earning a permanent place in her heart, rather invoking dislike and hate. In addition, Stephen comforting Keiko in the time of need makes sure that Keiko herself is not pushed of her own breaking point, which would have been another problem altogether. Joining the two reasons that Keiko would never be same if Stephen had acted differently, and the fact that he inquired about her brother in the first place show that Stephen affects other’s mindsets and personality through his empathy and his idea basically that nobody should die

In order to demonstrate the detrimental impact of societal institutions such as the mental hospital and the federal government on their subordinates, Ken Kesey captures the patients’ endeavor to become whole again as they temporarily escape the Combine’s clutches within his novel One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. At the beginning of Part 3, it appears Nurse Ratchet’s regime is nearly toppled and that the machinery has lost its control. In fact, McMurphy even draws “[laughs] out of some Acute who’d been scared to grin since he was twelve” and forms a basketball team for the inmates (175). Moreover, Chief Bromden speaks for the first time in years and achieves an erection after his pivotal conversation. Clearly, Kesey indicates the decline of the matriarchy and as a result, portrays the patients as regaining their masculinity.
Whenever Paul comes home, he feels overwhelmed with, “the nerveless sense of defeat, the hopeless feeling of sinking back forever into ugliness,” (Paul’s Case, 473). After doing the dishes one night he, “[scrubs] the greasy odour of the dish-water...with the ill-smelling soap he hated”, but then, in order to wash away the scent of dreaded ordinariness, “he shook over his fingers a few drops of violet water from the bottle he kept hidden in his drawer,” (Paul’s Case, 477). Here, the violet water acts as a remedy any unpleasant situation. Another illustration in which Paul uses flowers as a coping method for stress occurs when Paul has just run away from home to New York. After having arrived in his hotel room, Paul, “rang for the bell boy and sent him down for flowers,” and, “when the flowers came, he put them hastily into water...put the violets and jonquils on the tabouret beside the couch…
His downfall can be foreshadowed throughout the play, and one of the most significant reasons is because of his anger and aggression. Sometimes people say comments that they do not mean due to anger, but that is no excuse for Creon. He takes it to a whole new level that causes most to be afraid of him. Which in a way, leads to him believing that his decisions are right, due to no one standing up to him. This is clearly shown when the Sentry indicates, "I didn 't do it.

Tommy immediately demanded that Jack pour the beer out by the time he was done shutting the windows. After Tommy shut all of the windows, he was then distracted because he immediately had to use the restroom. By the time Tommy was done using the restroom, Jack was being cited by IV foot patrol for minor in consumption.
