Parents from working-class families passed on feeling of powerlessness when dealing with professionals to their children (Lareau, 2002). In contrast, middle-class parents were confident when criticising professionals such as educators as a result of their own education. They also had a wider vocabulary so they understood the interactions with professionals more than working class parents did. Working class parents were not as aware of the terms being used in these interactions and often appeared confused (Lareau, 2002). Working class and poor families although distrustful of professionals, tend to be overly accepting while middle-class parents translate skills in how to negotiate the child’s way through his or her own life path.
Truthfully, society would become so much better if people could forgive and forget, “Or, being lied about, don’t deal in lies,// Or, being hated, don’t give way to hating.” One of the famous quotes of the book is Atticus telling his children to take a moment and try to understand someone and their points of view before acting to prevent regret and disrespect. Atticus had a way of brushing off both success and failure so he could remain true and always remain the man his children looked up to and knew him as. His ability to remain humble and kind sets him apart from nearly
115). With this short sentiment, Harper Lee demonstrates Atticus’ poise and politeness to Mrs. Dubose through his instruction to his son. Seemingly, Atticus desires to grow his children with the same patience toward others that he himself possesses because, after all, patience is a virtue. Agreeably, Mr. Finch’s kind mindset precisely aligns with David G. Allen’s words, “Patience is the calm acceptance that things can happen in a different order than the one you have in mind.” The predicament originating from the upcoming trial pushes Atticus to teach his children patience because he knows that his children will face hate due to their father’s decisions to stand for those of lower society. Continually, he showers his children with enduring devotion by bringing them up in the ways of patience and humility whilst facing the trials of
The rationality of Atticus Finch is a defining feature of him that aides many people and assists him on many occasions throughout the novel. First, “Aunt Alexandra tells Atticus that he shouldn 't have let the children watch the trial, and Atticus retorts, "they might as well learn to cope with it”(Smykowski). This quote demonstrates Atticus’s rational thinking by his intelligence and comprehension of the situation. Shrewdly, he recognizes how the children will eventually encounter the prejudices of the community and realize they cannot hide behind the curtain of innocence forever.

In today’s society, people probably will not get killed for being themselves, but they could be teased or bullied. Society today has so many rules to fit in, and most people are not willing to do those. Some of those rules are downright gross, or just really weird. Outside influences should not indicate who you are going to be, or change you. People should not fit others into a category, and those people should not be okay with it.
In life we can't always control what happens to us. We will always make choices that are better then others, and there will also be consequences along with them. Some examples would be like befriending people. We've been taught that the people around us are the once that influences us. Sometimes we don't choose the right person to befriend.
Of course, society needs certain etiquette to remain civil. However, other etiquettes can quickly become constrictive. They inhibit open thinking, hinder free speaking, and stunt quick learning. Unfortunately, we live in a world without thick skin. We live in a time of wusses.
We still look down on people because of their habits and their finances. In the novel the characters opinions of one another did change. Scout learned to become friends with Walter once she realized that there differences did not make him any less of a person, his family was nice people and they all were people. Scout also learned that Aunt Alexandra just wants the best for her and she truly cares about her. Both of the characters problems with discrimination were solved at the end, that truly shows with a little help and understanding we could slowly teach people about discrimination, and how it is

Every each parents make decision for their children because they think is good for us but sometime we don’t like parent decision. If we are educated and make own decision in life then probably we will not regret because we know what is best for us. Educated people think hundred times before they make some decision in life. It will be good if our parents are educated. In conclusion, overall I though have own point of view of the purpose of education.
Fahrenheit 451 Every so often people express a desire to be left alone and not bothered, except in fact people do need to be bothered.

The world wouldn 't be the same if no one got bothered. In the book Fahrenheit 451 Montag and Faber were talking about how people today need to be bothered. If they are not bothered than the world would have been even worse than it is today.
