She cannot separate Tom from his father’s memory and is so paralyzed by a fear of being left again that she talks him out of any future dreams he has. By comparing the two, Amanda takes away Tom’s individuality. Because she sees Tom as another version of her husband, he is not given a fair chance to accomplish the things he wants. He is forced to pay for what his father did, which makes it almost impossible for him to move on from the past. Amanda inflicts her pain on her son, forcing the whole family to stay in the past.
Many problems in Amir’s life are unwittingly caused by Hassan. For instance, in his childhood, Amir is constantly competing with Hassan for Baba’s attention and love. This leads to his lack of action when he witnesses Hassan’s rape. His regret for not interfering when it happened and hiding his misguided choice infect his mind even in his adult life six years later when he moves to America. With a few exceptions, people simultaneously embody evil and good in their life; Hosseini demonstrates this with Amir, who is convinced that he himself is evil, and spends most of the book struggling to redeem himself so he can finally realize he is not wicked after all.
I kept looking outside, while swirling in my past memories to which made me furious for a second and smile to my next memory. While I was lost in my memories, the drop of the phone woke me out of it. I looked around and I saw that my mom’s hands were trembling and her face looked as if though she had just seen a ghost. My father was reacting like every one of us, surprised. My father questioned, “What’s wrong sweetie, you are scaring me…!” My mother was stuttering at this point and I knew it

From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.

But I do remember my Dad walking in and telling my Mom that the neighbor said something about that they needed to watch their kids and be more careful next time. So she got extremely upset and ended up breaking the back door from swinging it open so hard and I could hear her from the inside of the house yelling at our neighbor and someone else had to come in and help me get cleaned up. I was so stressed over the crying and seeing my side bleeding pretty heavily and then the yelling really did not help, but I was finally cleaned up with bandages and medicine put on my bite and so I was feeling a little bit better after that. Once the situation with my wound and the neighbor was settled my Mom and Dad called the pound so they could get the dog and take it away for
He busted straight through the door and into the sitting-room where he met them half naked on the floor. Hilda ran all the way home but she could not run from Johnny’s wrath and shame. He could never again touch her so he burnt it down, to get rid of everything that would remind him of her since he could no longer be with her, unfortunately, she was trapped hiding below the house and everything, including Hilda and Johnny’s sanity was burnt away that
One of the biggest experiences I have gone through in my life is my sisters and I being foster care our whole lives.
