Then “suddenly it was deathly quiet, we had all frozen. Nobody in my family had ever hit me, nobody”(Hinton 50). Darry didn’t mean to hit Ponyboy, however, as the eldest brother in this family, he was so angry that his little brother challenged his authority at that moment. Darry always gets mad at Ponyboy without asking the reason for Ponyboy’s affairs. Darry still treats Ponyboy as a little child who doesn’t understand anything, but Ponyboy is already a teenager, he has his own thoughts.
When Doodles brother cried when doodle walked in front of their parents but not for the fact that he taught Doodle to walk he knew he was being selfish. Although he wasn’t crying because doodle could walk but because he knew he was being selfish and wrong because he only helped him because he was ashamed to have a crippled brother and wanted to fix his pride. His pride was more important to him then doodle was. Which is the main reason he helped Doodle and he knew he was wrong for this so he cried but he didn’t change even though he knew he was wrong. When doodle failed to become normal before the storm his brothers pride felt ruined.
He would be better off if he remained with his brothers because he would be happy, the fact that they truly care about Pony and his well-being, and he would be with people who would go to great lengths to protect him. Staying with Darry is a better choice than being put in a boys’ home because with his brothers, he would be with people who truly love and care about him. Although being put in a boys home seems appealing, Ponyboy would never be happy being separated from his brothers. You can see this when Ponyboy says “ I had taken the long way around, but I was finally home. To stay”(99).
He never told his mom when the older brother had hurt him. Doodle’s brother said “Sometimes I accidentally turned him over, but he never told Mama. (Hurst)”, this was around the time Doodle was three, so he cared about his brother even when he was very young. Furthermore, Doodle is caring because he buried the scarlet ibis after the bird died. Doodle and his family have crowded around this exotic, mysterious bird, “Daddy, Mama, and I went back to the dining-room table, but we watched Doodle through the open door.

Some things that she says to him is “And I have a few dresses that your mother or sister could probably use… But I have plenty of clothes, thank you.” In this quote she offered to give Boyd some old clothes and he kindly rejected because he didn't need it. She was disappointed in him because he didn't take it because people would take it and that was not right for her to say. She should have had some empathy because she didn't think how he could have felt being questioned so much family which was weird to
I could tell that day that my mom had probably had a long rough day. I knew it was true when my dad made some smart remark and my mom went off. Usually if my dad made some rude comment my mom would ignore it or say some little thing and drop it. There were a few times when my parents had more than a few words, but the conversation usually quickly resolved themselves. When my dad made his comment my mom went off and did not stop.
Little did I know this was the day that my brother was possessed by paranoid schizophrenia. I was 12 and he was 16 during the time of his first episode. Danny was spitting out gibberish and although I had no idea what mental illness was at the time, I knew my brother was sick.
