Within the Bly household as read in The Turn of the Screw, where the governess is the only person able to see ghosts, everything seems as it is falling apart. As the governess starts working at Bly, everything seems picture perfect, but is quite the opposite as the story progresses. As everything unfolds at Bly the governess seems to become progressively mentally incapacitated. As days pass by the governess believes she begins to see the ghosts on a daily basis, and she becomes so frustrated she accuses the children, Miles and Flora, of meeting with the ghosts. The children never admit to her accusations, which upsets the governess to sure a high degree that she even starts to blame the children of conspiring against her.
It also talks about the neighbour’s only son who has to go to work every day to make his own living. Even after this, the girl has enough confidence to say that it should have ended. This is not as easy to say as it looks, because the child being abused is usually pressured to felling that the abuse occurs because they are worthless and it is a way to treat the child. Children are also not able to think on their own due to their parents making all the choices for them that actually benefits the parents. Due to this the child has no say in what they want to do.
As the main character, Scout, gets older she starts to lose her innocence and gain empathy, but she doesn’t quite get the concept. So her father helps her out by telling her, “‘You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-’” (Lee 39). In this quote Atticus is explaining to Scout how empathy works and how it is an important life skill to have. This helps Scout grow out of her innocence. Connecting to the theme, Atticus is trying to improve Scout’s quality of life by helping her understand empathy.

This means that Sally has a greater risk of developing health conditions later in life, such as alcoholism, chronic depression, heart disease, etc. Fortunately, instead of allowing her rough start in life have control of her future, Sally continuously aims to give her children a better life and show them that she loves them unconditionally. All three of her children have ACES scores of 3 and resiliency scores of 10.

But once they move to Welch, we see a more neglectful and destructive parenting style. Both Rex and Rosemary start to ignore the kids, asking them to fend for themselves and each other. This leads to both Lori and Jeannette having to help and almost manage the other two children. But in the long run, this may not have been a bad idea because it strengthened both of their independence. More and more we see this, as the Walls parents put the children in bad situations, they struggle, but eventually fix the situation and learn valuable lessons.
Many people use the phrase “ They inherit it from their parents” (Jessica p.1). But as a child, you should have goals to be better than your parents to help them later on in life.

Growing up with Atticus helps Scout develop an open mind: unprejudiced and individual. When her father takes Tom Robinson’s case, she tries her best to hold her head high but soon realizes the challenge it brings to do so when she hears the chatter behind her family’s back. Not being able to take it anymore, Scout bloodies her cousin’s nose for repeating accusations. This shows that Scout is still young and childish.
