She bared her teeth and slapped me across my mouth with the back of her hand.“You shut your mouth,” she hissed. “You don’t know what you’re talking about!” “But I want to hear what happened!” “ (39) .

Atticus Finch says empathy is based on sympathy, on being able to see another person 's point of view and comprehend why they act the way they do even if it 's hard to agree with it. He is allocating fatherly advice to Scout by telling her that Miss Caroline was probably just trying to do her best in a new environment. This piece of advice supports Scouts development throughout the novel by making her not as agile to judge. Although Atticus is crucial to his children 's growth, he can’t give a “feminine” input which sometimes flaws his parenting, but Lee proves that good parenting requires a person to do the right thing, no matter the circumstances through fairness, perspective, and integrity. Atticus’ fairness displays he is a good parent because he considers that everyone deserves a chance to be understood and have motives for their actions.

Also by being organized with school work and my personal life. In personal behavior I remind myself to try my best and not to give up because it will not be any ones else fault but my own.

Contrastingly, Atticus strives to role model good behaviours, in order for his principles to permeate his children 's morals, ethics and tenets. Exemplified in this quotation: "First of all," he (Atticus) said, "if you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you 'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view […] until you climb into his skin and walk around in it."
