Some people are old at 18 and some are young at 90… Time is a concept that humans created. This makes it age prejudice, because people come to the conclusion that Scout would not understand adult problems.

Sometimes the older sibling does not want their friends, seeing them with their younger sibling, because they might be embarrassed. That is what occurs with Jem and Scout.

The Great Santini explores many themes in human life, and it especially explores the life of Ben Meecham, the son of the one and only Bull Meecham. Bull Meecham is the alpha of the household, and he considers himself to be the best pilot fighter and "the meanest, toughest, screamingest squadron commander in the Marine Corps." (Conroy 144).
