In Amir’s childhood Baba has the most influence over Amir, and because of this, he isn’t able to express himself as he struggles to meet Baba’s expectations. To win Baba’s affection, Amir becomes desperate enough to do anything ensuring Baba’s affection whether what the cost be. Hosseini displays how desperately Amir yearns for Baba’s love; when they go out for a picnic, Amir tries to earn Baba’s attention by saying “I think I have saratan (cancer)” however, even this does not get acknowledged by Baba (14). The response Baba gives characterizes their relationship as distant and because of this the roots of Amir’s obsessive behavior in trying to win over Baba shows how much significance Baba holds. Also, with Amir going as far as saying he has cancer, this foreshadows future actions he may take out of desperation to gain Baba’s love such as
In the fairy tale “Hansel and Gretel,” the Grimm brothers illustrate how children need parental guidance to provide protection, because, without it, they often suffer negative consequences. The story starts off by portraying two young children that were left in the woods by their stepmother and father because they cannot provide for them: “Night fell but the woodcutter did not return. Gretel began to sob bitterly. Hansel too felt scared but he tried to hide his feelings and comfort for his sister”(Grimm and Grimm). The two kids feel scared and in need of their father, although Hansel cared for his sister to make her feel less frightened.

Often it takes failure, insight, and experience to learn life lessons which children simply do not possess for the mere fact of not having lived long enough. Wendy, Peter, and Miriam act like they have it all figured out and are willing to live with the consequences of their actions. In the matter of Peter and Wendy, they wanted the nursery so bad they were willing to sacrifice their parents to the lions to have their way. They do not have the understanding of what it takes to live in the real world, especially at ten years old and when your closest comfort is your house. They were used to manipulating their parents to get what they wanted instead of learning the skills to do things themselves.
It is like the children always assumed the worst, and the worst was yet to come. They did not put time frames on the deaths, but with their luck they expected it.

You feel around frantically for an off switch, but it is nowhere to be found. Eventually you find an old beaten down control panel, but you can’t see what it does, you don’t know what buttons do what. But eventually you have to learn how use the panel to slow down the ride and lessen the blows or you will have to get used to all the hits. Eventually you hear other carts, you can get support and ask for help; but no track is the same, no panel is the same, and no rider is the same.
