On the other hand, Atticus Finch uses self-control appropriately and successfully educated his “children to self-control, to the habit of holding passion and prejudice and evil tendencies subject to an upright and reasoning will” (Benjamin Franklin). In teaching his children to have self-control and a strong willpower, Atticus helped to lessen “the misery from their future” (Benjamin
Walter is very insecure about his manhood throughout the story and his mother even tries to give his manhood to him. The only thing that Mama does when she tries to “fix” Walter’s manhood is make him more depressed and insecure about his role of a man in the world.
