Children live in a fantasy world and believe the world is good. Children are like this because they have not had any experiences to change their opinions. Although, Macbeth was an adult, he was still innocent. Innocence can mean many things, but in “The Tragedy of Macbeth” it means to be naive and not guilty of crime. When Macbeth killed Duncan he lost his innocence almost instantly.
You have no chance at all so you surrender and your house is robbed of all its valuable possessions. Now imagine you’re in the same situation but instead of a bat you reach for your nearby AR15, the thief would be outgunned and would be a fool not to surrender
There are no lights inside the cars. No light anywhere. Above him lift girders old as an iron queen, and glass somewhere far above that would let the light of day through. But it 's night. He 's afraid of the way the glass will fall--soon--it will be a spectacle: the fall of a crystal palace.
Atticus may have many flaws, but those flaws are what makes him a good character, and not bad father. This essay is on the book To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee, and the subject is that Atticus is a good parent to his children because he helps them grow, does not coddle them and tells them the truth.

His emotional appeal was the most persuasive as it really grabbed the reader’s attention and made a sorrowful
It is obvious, as Golding argues, that “if there is no one around to guide children, then they go wrong” (Golding). After all, “the positive effects of kindness are experienced in the brain of everyone who witnessed the act, improving their mood and making them significantly more likely to ‘pay it forward’ ” (“Science of Kindness”). Existing in an environment where only viciousness lives perpetuates more immorality. However, these environments of perfect evil and abandonment rarely exist; even gangs are a good substitute for caretakers, despite the preconception that gangs are malicious. If one lacks a loving parent, it is better to socialize in a gang and learn to follow rules than to resort to crime or suicide alone.
There are several factors why children are selected to be in combat zones instead of the playgrounds, ranging from vulnerability reasons to economic conditions. First, children are the most favorable source since they are easier to manipulate and intimidate due to the lack of their reasoning. An article from the Gale Student Resources in Context database, “Child Soldiers” states since “children’s brains and emotions are immature, children are easy to recruit, indoctrinate, and coerce.” In other words their vulnerability and inability to understand eases their recruitment because they will do as they are told to please their commanders. Since a child’s brain is known for its ability to absorb what is projected to learn, therefore they quickly submit to the intimating actions they are pressured to preform because they fear the punishment superiors uphold when soldiers do not obey.

In school,… it is far more honorable to fail than to cheat. Teach him to learn how to gracefully lose, and enjoy winning when he does win. Try to give my son the strength not to follow the crowd when everyone else is doing it.
