Sociopaths, often described as having antisocial personality disorder, are not born with their traits but their experiences they go through make them the way they are. Perry Smith has many examples of how his upbringing has made him the way he is. Perry’s life was filled with violence and neglect. Perry had a seemingly happy life until his dad started to beat his mother and she turned to drunkenness and promiscuity. Finally perry’s parents split, which can also to lead to problems in children's lives, he travels with his mother and siblings to san Francisco where he constantly gets in trouble to which he blames it on having, “no rule or discipline, or anyone to show me right from wrong" (54).
Since there were so many “young men her father had driven away,” it can be inferred that Emily’s father was a very unwelcoming man who did not believe any male was good enough to meet the Grierson standards (Faulkner 55). As stated by Victor Strandberg, “driving away her suitors so as to keep her housekeeping services for himself, Emily 's father has ruined her chances for a normal life” (par. 3). After the death of Mr. Grierson, all that Emily had left was herself and the house because of the seclusion her father created. However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her.

From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
Cullen would continue to work at 8 other hospitals where he killed most of his patients with digoxin, a powerful heart medication that causes a complete heart block when overdosed (60 minutes). Charles Cullen became killer and was not born one. Growing up without a father affected him negatively because it increased his risk for alcohol abuse, mental illness, criminality, and suicide (Photius, p.1) Cullen grew up poor in a large family raised by a single mother. He was suicidal from the age of nine. Cullen couldn’t control his anger, and lacked a conscience which he demonstrated when he tried to fight against bullying by spiking drinks at a party with rat poison (Jennifer Hash, 2006, p.1).
This was the most significant event in this book that showed lies and deceit.

This was just like what happened ten years ago but instead of Grandpa asking Paul what's wrong with his eyes he asks eric and whispers him something when he
I love the gang and everyone in the gang because we all stick up for each other. If everyone in the gang robbed stores like Dally did all of us would be in jail but not my kid brothers they would be in a boys home and I would never see them again because robbing stores is illegal. I believe that Johnny used self defense because my kid brother Ponyboy was going to be drowned. If Johnny would not have killed Bob the rumble would be harder with one less man on are side and 2 more men on their side. If I lose one more family member then I do not know what I would do.
In Touching Spirit Bear by Ben Mikaelsen, Cole is a kid who focused on anger and lied a lot. In this part of the book Cole swore not to lie which is a big change. Cole was beaten up by his parents when he was younger and was raised in an environment of anger. He was forced to go to and island in Alaska because he smashed Peter Driscal’s head into the pavement. On the island in Alaska he was mauled by a bear for threatening it.
He told me I was his property; that I must be subject to his will in all things.” (doc 7) Men were never punished for their dreadful acts on female slaves. Most wives knew of their husband’s actions, but did little to stop them. The infidelity of their husbands made them jealous of the slave woman, so they did nothing to protect them against their husbands. Black and lower class females were instructed to imitate the practices of the Cult of Domesticity and Republican motherhood, but often could not due to their low social and economic
Celie's father (Pa), is not only verbally abusive, but also physically abusive, “He beat me for dressing trampy but he do it to me anyway.” (6). Pa beat Celie for the way that she dressed, but he also beat her for no reason at all. During this time in history, it was very common to beat your children or your wife, even though it was made illegal in 1920. Physical abuse is seen throughout the novel and is inflicted on Celie by both her father and husband Mr._____. In 2018, physical abuse is “hidden”, but it is present in such large numbers especially in children, “Children are suffering from a hidden epidemic of child abuse and neglect… Every year more than 3.6 million referrals are made to child protection agencies…” (childhelp).
His family life wasn’t steady his father with whom he had a close relationship walked out in 1981 and that’s when Travers started to rely on crime to provide clothes, and he would steal animals including chickens to provide food.

I believe in favor of the teenagers, that giving them a life sentences without parole is not the best option. Teens haven 't lived that long in order to learn from their mistakes and fully experience the real world and being on their own without their parents guidance. In the case of Jacob Ind, I believe he was wrongly accused of murder and was mentally scarred due to the abuse of his parents causing him to commit this crime. Jacob and his brother would be sexually abused almost every night by their stepfather and emotional abused by their mother 's hate of the two boy 's existence. He saw no way out of this situation and had to free himself from this torture before it would kill him.
Additionally, they have differences that involve the law and the way they want to die. Therefore, Dally Winston and Johnny Cade have huge differences in their lives, but also notable similarities. Johnny and Dally both have abusive parents that affect their lives in a crucial way. For example, Johnny’s parents drink alcohol, and they hit him and abuse him. Johnny is very weak and shy, so he runs away for the day or night, and comes back the next day.
