In The Kite Runner, Baba was an overall bad parental figure for Amir, despite having his good moments. His actions and words shaped Amir in a negative way, causing Amir to have a distorted image of a father-son relationship. First, “good parent” must be defined, with the purpose of putting parameters on this statement. A good parent is one who supports their child physically and emotionally in everything they do. A good parent respects their child and helps them make good decisions.

On another note, Siddhartha's loss wounds his heart. Not from Kamala, but from his son. He truly loved his son. Siddhartha knew letting his son go was the right thing to do, yet he was miserable. In chapter 10, Siddhartha admitted to this misery, “He felt deep love for the runaway boy, like a wound, and yet felt at the same time that this wound was not intended to fester in him, but that it should heal.” (Hesse 126).
He tries to teach him to be tough because that’s how he knew to grow up. He’s Always talking about facing the devil, symbolizing his dad. Since troy doesn’t know how to love properly, or be loyal, he isn’t loyal to rose. He’s selfish in thinking that he deserves more than rose does. He looks for happiness in another female because he thinks he’s fulfilling his duty of being a man because he provided materials to his family.
On one side, Nathan can be viewed as the damaging force within the Price family, hence associating him with complicity; although on the other side, when observing Nathan from a perspective similar to his own, it is clear that his goals, despite how he goes about accomplishing them, are simply to better mankind. Because he thinks that spreading the Lord’s name is the way to save the damned, it is precisely what he intends to do. From that point of view, Nathan can be viewed as a good-intentioned man who goes about things in the entirely wrong and maniacal way, supporting my opinion that as Kingsolver proposes, all people are complicit, but can also possess good
Paton continually mentioned the importance of faith in this book and what it meant to each of the characters present. One of the main ideas in this novel was the journey Kumalo took in order to overcome the challenges he had faced. The obstacles he was presented with included finding his daughter and his son. When he had found his son, Absalom, he was in a time of hardships and looked to God for answers. Therefore, Kumalo and Absalom were two characters who were strongly impacted by faith and their relationships with God, which allowed them both to forgive and ask for forgiveness.
To most people, a hero is one who possesses the powerful traits that seem to move the hearts of hundreds of people. Such traits include: helpfulness, the key to building other’s trust in you and your motives, leadership, the trait that helps one to use their intellect and common sense to make smart decisions and lead others responsibly and positively, and care, the way to accumulating countless friends and followers through one’s kindness, concern, and philanthropy for other people. Everyday I strive my hardest to give others a positive example of my hero: my father, Patrick Sekerka. While the concept of “helpfulness” can be misunderstood, it goes without saying that my father is truly a helpful man. He is always there and willing to help other people.
Either god is real and is punishing him for his impunity during the affair, or he is dead and has relinquished control over the stability of nature and humanity. John pursues the latter, likely because of his pride as both a Christian and a male. If we look at the evidence, it is clear that John is a man made of fear and pride. He would rather believe that god is dead, and the wrath of a godless land is more believable than the fact that he has broken his religious code of conduct. It’s more entertaining than surprising to watch John struggle with his pride, as he attempts to convince himself that he is a man of God who simply committed a deed as a will of social deterioration, rather than a blasphemous mistake that would call into question his character.
He thought that God punished him just because he was not a believer. During his life on the isolated island, he reflected on God and religion.

God wanted him to not only be a good believer but also find his way to providence.Therefore, he experienced these tribulations.
Spirituality involves our inner selves in the experiences that we have wherein we seldom apply our logic and reasoning. It actually upholds the values and beliefs by which we apply in our everyday living ( Appleton, et. al. 2011). In the study of Rungduin and Rungduin (2013) on role of cultural values to forgiveness of Filipinos they have postulated that since the Philippines have a strong religious affiliation the culture of the country is greatly affected by the teaching of the church.
