Atticus — the father to Jem and Scout— teaches is children just that.
The was a popular phrase among the adults of that era, “children are resilient.” Perry had always found this statement to be unnerving; he believed that there was evidence to support the fact that, while PTSD was now being recognised as a common ailment among adults, it could not be attributed to children with the same high levels of stress.

At first The Giver warns Jonas that this process of receiving memories “will be painful”(Lowery 85). This pain comes in the form of both the joyful and the terrifying memories. The positive memories that he receives cause him pain because they make him see how much happier the people in his community could be. “Jonas’s realizations about the constraints of this rigidly organized life come gradually", but they begin to weigh on him (Chamberlain).

Additionally, the idea of equality is also crucial to all aspects of their society, meaning that no family can be any different than another. Unlike today’s society, a household cannot possess as many children and members as the guardians choose.
