Dibs was often locked in his playroom by his parents because they did not want to deal with him. With these domestic conditions, Dibs never had an opportunity to express his emotions and display his profound intellect, let alone be praised for it and made to feel comfortable being himself.

I can understand why he wouldn’t like his father. His father left him nothing behind, and Okwonkwo had to start from the beginning at a very young age. In the story, Okwonkwo is sympathetic and times, but he’s also unsympathetic at times. When it comes to his father, he’s sympathetics, because if my father had left me with nothing and left with the image he had i would be upset too. When your father is a failure, people expect you’ll be the same.

There is a lot of anger throughout the short novel towards Jim. It seems as though everyone hates Jim now for what he has done and that he is a cruel father. “I made enough working on shares, but they came and took it all away from me. I couldn’t go around begging after I’d made enough to keep us” (37). It seems like JIm is getting angry with everyone telling him that he could have brought her over so they could feed her somehow, or that it was wrong to shoot her the next morning she said she was hungry.
That fact that they eventually come to form a tentative relationship is astounding considering Thomas Stones ' attitude at the time of the twins birth.

After realizing it’s not his parents fault for being poor he says, “Seriously I know my mother and father had their dreams when they were kids. They dreamed about being something other than poor, but they never got the chance to be anything because nobody paid attention to their dreams” (11). His parents had a conflict with the world, they had aspirations, but since they were living on the reservation they weren’t given chances. This conflict reveals that Junior is understanding because he knows people on the reservation aren’t given any real chances to accomplish anything the only way for him to get a chance was by leaving. While talking to Mr. P about his sister, he realizes, “Had she been hanging on to her dream of being a writer, but only barely hanging on, and something made her let go” (39).
He is not looking for pity of a crutch because he is far too independent and strong now to search for sympathy for a circumstance he cannot change. His friends and family are always left profoundly astonished by his actions and thoughts presented in certain scenarios where depression and negativity arise from a social environment. He once told me that “The only time I felt as if I had a father or a teacher was at someone else’s home.” But the part the makes me the proudest to know him is the fact that if you were to have just met Hunter, you would never have any idea what he deals with or where he has come from. Hunter is strong, and he is the perfect example of not letting circumstances change your
However, he is married and has one child. Although these brothers share their differences they do share some similarities.

Right after that Paxton declares he was always out to help people, not to frigging hurt them. Perhaps he was bitter that he was always helping people, and nobody would ever help him in return. Clearly Paxton had a lack of supportive entourage, and therefore he wanted to get their attention somehow. It is very possible that he had always been a good guy, but changed his ways because he never got the same treatment in return. Paxton continues: ‘This guy deteriorated every single day.
The fact that George had tried to help him with everything and was almost like a parent keeping things for him and making sure that had something to eat and making sure he had work shows that he was trying to help him, but in the long run he knew Lennie would never get better. ”I think I knowed from the very first. I think I knowed we’d never do her. He usta like to hear about it so much I got to thinking maybe we would’’(steinbeck 44). This shows George wanted a better life for him and Lennie, but deep down he knew Lennies limitations and accepted that the dream was never meant to be and took it upon himself to end
A quote says, “No candle lit in his memory. His last word had been my name. He had called out to me and I had not answered” (112).This shows that he regretted not being able doing more in his father 's last hours and made moments more precious to him. He was changed so greatly from previous event and could recognize that and no longer do the things he wished . Wiesel says, “I did not weep, and it pained me that I could not weep.
