For that reason, their daughter and father relationship is already damaged. Dad is not aware of his behavior when he is drunk, and even though he apologized before, his actions has already
Another reason may be because parents wanted their children to be shielded from the terrors of the world (Scholz). Either way, it relates to Candide’s tale in more ways than one. The story of Dinah was one day she was walking in the land of the Schemites when the prince came upon her and raped her (Genesis 34). The prince then fell in love with her, but everyone forbade it (34). Dinah’s brothers did not trust the prince who had done such an awful thing to their sister (34).

These bullies who torment the disabled children are not being informed that maybe at home the child´s family did not eat because they had to pay for another doctor´s visit. Family´s that have a disabled member are always struggling with these problems. Families struggle with social issues, financial issues, and much more. If people are informed of this world wide problem these problems may be limited.
The tension was palpable. “Alrighty then!, who is treasurer this week?” went on Andy trying to disperse the apprehension. This illustrated how much the group meant to Andy, because he was afraid to lose the group even though he had the longest sobriety in the group. Additionally, many of the members attend other NA or AA meetings and reported feeling closer to those other groups. “I honestly don’t want to come back here, Andy is a dick, these women don’t have someone to take care of their kids, and since when did we decided we don’t allow kids.
Huck and Tom were out helping Jim escape when Tom got shot in the leg and had to stay and get help. When Huck came back to the Phelps’ the next day, Aunt Sally smothers Huck, tells him about how much she has been worrying, and questions about the whereabouts of “Sid.” Huck cannot tell her about Jim and the shotgun, so he lies and says he is not for certain which makes Aunt Sally worry even more. Aunt Sally has been a mother figure for Huck and he then realizes how much she cares about them and begins to feel terrible for lying to her. That night, Huck had planned to sneak out to visit Jim and Tom, but he did not finish. He explains, “..twice I went down the rod away in the night, and slipped around front, and see her setting there by her candle in the window with her eyes towards the road and the tears in them…” (285) Readers can see his struggle here as he debates between leaving and seeing Jim, but he feels morally obligated to stay with Aunt Sally as she grieves over the missing “Sid.” This conflict resolves with Huck staying at home with Sally, because he feels that he should not make her more worried than she already is because she has been so motherly and kind to him.

Unlike most parents, George was unable to provide a good home for Lennie, clean food and water or a good education. Being a good parents requires resources to teach children and George can’t teach Lennie right from wrong. Therefore this shows that George doesn’t have the resources to teach Lennie how to fix his

Jeannette and her brother Brian find a new playing spot in a shack and they accidentally burn it down. I think this book is banned because the children are trapped in the burning shack and the dad does not punish them and he makes sure that no one knows that it is them who set the fire. Also it is not safe for them to be playing with fire, but their father thinks that it is fine. Jeannette’s father, Rex, also taught her how to swim and he taught her by just throwing her into the water and letting her drown. Jeannette was scared and did not understand the concept of this and she started loosing trust in her father.
He doesn’t want to use any of Janie’s money she has. When Tea Cake and Janie first met, he would do things with her. The book says, “It was so crazy digging worms by the lamp light and setting out for Lake Sabelia after midnight that she felt like a child breaking rules” (102). Janie’s first two husbands, Logan and Joe would not do anything fun with Janie. Logan would have Janie working in the kitchen or the field and Joe would have her working in the store and have her as a “trophy wife” to look at.

My cousin did mention that he thought it didn’t bug his girlfriend that he drank so much since she never said anything about it. The problem that they have is that there 's some miscommunication between them. Being completely honest about a problem they dislike and
