In addition to unrealistic standards, Orenstein is alarmed by the growing popularity of princesses because she views them as “retrograde role models” (329). Therefore, she thinks princesses teach false lessons on morals, speculating less attractive girls will be bullied.

In one particular scene, Tea Cake had left to gamble and win money for the two of them, and Janie’s behaviour during this time is explained as, “Janie waited till midnight without worrying, but after that she began to be afraid.

Nevertheless, The Crucible is a great reading that is not historically accurate, but simply describes the time of hysteria and the decisions people would make during the
The Necessity of Empathy According to the Merriam-Webster Dictionary, empathy is the ability to understand or share another’s feelings. When one thinks about empathy they may not care about its importance. However in the novel To Kill a Mockingbird the narrator’s father, Atticus, ensured that his children knew and cared about “The Necessity of Empathy.” Even if someone is positive that they understand a person’s situation , there will always be a factor that was forgotten and that the person will not truly understand until they “climb into his skin and walk around in it.” Some of the main characters learned and demonstrated empathy, such as Atticus, Jem, the narrator’s brother, and Scout, the narrator.

One of these instances was at the jailhouse, after this situation Atticus thanked his children for making “Walter Cunningham stand in” his “shoes for a minute…” This demonstration of empathy could have, and most likely did, save Atticus’ life in the novel.
