In To Kill a Mockingbird, family is destiny. Within the confines of a small town where the same people have lived for generations, no one can escape…becoming their parents. Horror! Either the parents raise their kids to be like them, for good or ill, or the pressure of community expectations that a person live up, or down, to their family is too much to resist.

Walker seeks her fathers approval and wishes to make him proud of how far she has come in life. It also shows that she has changed a lot since the time when she had “grieved” her father and that she has grown up and realized how much he means to her. She now emulates his father “cooking, writing, chopping wood, staring into the fire”.
