Sam has no clue how to raise a child which is quite evident by how he struggles to change Lucy’s diapers and how he is not feeding her ever two hours, until his neighbor, Annie, explains it to him. He asks for help from Annie to babysit Lucy while he works, similar to any single parent needing a helping hand.

Seeing that her father is having difficulties reading the advanced book she takes it away and they start reading Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.
It began when as punishment for the deed he had to, “...Come over [to Mrs. Dubose’s house] every afternoon after school and read to her out loud for two hours”(Lee 121). This seemed like torture to Jem, who whined and complained to Atticus, but he eventually submitted. As Jem read, Mrs. Dubose seemed to be trying to teach him new words, according to Scout, who said, “When Jem came to a word he didn’t know, he skipped it, but Mrs. Dubose would catch him and make him spell it out”(Lee 122). Jem seemed to be unaware of this, but he must have learned new words and their meanings from this experience. However, he was mainly focused on how ghastly the old woman appeared.

Who’s fault is it if a student is failing a few classes in school; the parent, the teacher, or the student? Students themselves are at fault for failing classes in school. It’s one thing if you are struggling as a student at a young age but as you progress in school, the responsibility becomes your own. It is the student’s responsibility for them completing the work and learning the skills that are being taught, it’s not your parent’s job to do your work for you, and if your teacher is doing a bad job teaching then it’s up to you to get extra help. Do you go home to your parents screaming at you for a bad grade?

When he started reading books a new chapter in his life began. He realized that reading a lot gives a person valuable information and helps him as a learner. When he was diagnosed to have poor eyesight and started to wear eyeglasses, his performance in school improved. From the bottom of his class he managed to go on top.
Can you imagine a kindergartener on the first day of school hiding behind his mother’s skirts? This is a pretty common event, but what if instead of giving her son that encouraging nudge he needs, she tells him that he does not have to do anything he does not want to. What about a college student whose mom calls him everyday to make sure he gets up on time to go to class? Or an adult who cannot get a job because he lacks all the necessary social skills and does not know how to conduct himself. All of these scenarios are brought on by what is called “helicopter parenting.
He has issues in school, and lacks motivation because of his father. “This time last year, he’d been full of enthusiasm for his new school…. His dad had sat him down, explained how he felt stifled and need to get away. He was going off travelling, to “find himself”, he said.” - Page 1, Line 10. Max develops as a person throughout the story, as he meets Ishraqi and hears her life story.
My first experience with education occurred in kindergarten. I remember my mom picking up my older brother up and I from school in order to drive us to my brother 's speech class. At the time, he had a combination of a lisp and a stutter which caused these classes went on for what seemed like forever. The part of this experience that baffled me was that I never saw a problem with the way he was speaking until we arrived at the class. Now that I am older, I realize that everything that I know to be is due to someone giving their opinion on it.
