Typically, the father is the one who has to save the son. In this case, however, the son is the one who has to save the father, disappointing the son because the elder has more experience and should know better. Therefore, with that experience, the father should have avoided any problems that need a third party to interfere. The difference is, for The Kite Runner Baba’s disappointment towards who Amir has become and for “Forgiving Our Fathers,” Lourie’s father disappoints his son by setting a bad example. A similarity between Baba and Lourie’s father is making their sons feel disappointed in both the fathers and the sons.
In Chinua Achebe’s book, Things Fall Apart father son relationships play a crucial role in the narrative. The book talks about Okonkwo’s relationship with his father Unoka, Nwoye’s relationship with his father Okonkwo, and finally, Ikemefuna’s relationship with his father Okonkwo. A good father son relationship is important in a young boy’s life. Some believe that father son relationships don’t have any effect on a boy’s life but in reality they play a huge role in how a boy grows up. Fathers should provide many things to their sons because close father son relationships are crucial in determining what kind of man a boy turns out to be.
It is well-established that throughout the book, Nwoye’s growing changes from a boy to a real man. Even though Nwoye experienced dynamic change during his life, his personality in this book is flat. Nwoye decides to make his first change responded to his father’s dissatisfaction to him, “That was the kind of story that Nwoye loved. But he knew that they were for foolish women and children, and he knew that his father wanted him to be a man.” In Things Fall Apart, the descriptions of Nwoye mainly portray one kind of personality—fear towards his father Okonkwo. Thus, they have little interactions, which are always Okonkwo’s rebuke.
“The Love between Fathers and Sons” The theme of relationships runs throughout the novel, the four main relationships being Baba and Amir, Amir and Hassan, Amir and Sohrab and Baba and Hassan. Some relationships are parallel to each other and are reflective in many different chapters throughout the novel. In the novel, The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hosseini, Amir is the main character. He is jealous toward anyone who has a deep, emotional connection with his father Baba. Baba has a major concern for his son, Amir.
However, he must take on the role of parent, for a time at least; Lionel is uneducated and before this has only known physical strength as a mode of guiding his life. Adrian cannot simply take him to London and install him into a position of rank because he would not have the knowledge and skills to conduct himself professionally or socially.

An of the comparison rabbi Eliahu and His Son with Eli and His Father In the book, “Night” Rabbi Eliahu loved his father just as Eli love his father. No matter what was happening, their relationship’s were really strong. Their relationships weren 't that similar. Each father and son had their own struggles.

The poem “My Papa’s Waltz” written by Theodore Roethke uses vague and ambiguous language about the relationship he and his father share. The unique circumstances of each family are never easy to understand. Father’s helps build a solid foundation in their sons lives by their presence, their absence, their criticism, their encouragement, and ultimately, the lessons passed along from one generation to the next. The tone of the poem gave me the impression that Roethke loved his hard working, rough housing, playful father. Roethke describes his father using imagery that suggest his strength and his working class background.
In the fiction novel The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, happiness and redemption are two separate occurrences in life that are achieved in different ways. A critic of the novel writes that The Kite Runner is a “thoughtful book in which redemption and happiness are not necessarily the same thing,” The happiness and redeeming qualities of the characters in the novel are not one and the same; sometimes, one is without the other. This leads to a disconnection between these two aspects. When Amir was a young boy in Afghanistan, the one thing that brought him true happiness was when Baba was proud of him. Amir strived to satisfy his father and earn his approval, yet Baba was often unimpressed with his accomplishments; this resulted in Amir longing
