From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
In my gut i knew i hadn 't done enough but i had enough of letting people walk all over me. He wasn 't the first but he sure as hell was going to be the last. I knew that if i didn 't teach him a lesson that he would do this same thing again to another girl and that 's not fair. So i did what i do best climbed out my window and took my step dad 's car because my mom started sleeping with the keys in her room and went to jason 's house. I knew his parents weren 't going to be home he told me all the time about how they worked nights to take care of his little brothers during the day, i also knew that his brothers were at their grand mothers house like every friday so he was home alone.
Doodle’s disabilities affected him from birth so he was not treated equal and his brother wanted him to learn the things he should already know. What prompted Doodle’s brother to help him was embarrassment which over came all of his feelings. Being different was hard for Doodle but at times it was harder for his brother to put up with because, as the narrator states, “Doodle was my brother and he was going to cling to me forever, no matter what I did.”(Hurts 159). Unfortunately Doodle was told he would never live and because of that he was never taught anything as a child. It would take Doodle a long time to learn everything.
Many people, including Scout, Jem, and Dill, are afraid of things Boo hasn’t done. Furthermore, Boo always stays home, which makes others think Boo’s father has been punishing him for his actions. Yet this isn’t true, as Jem states, “...when I was your age...(I thought) if there’s just one kind of folks, why can’t they get along with each other?... Scout… I’m beginning to understand why Boo Radley’s stayed shut up in the house all this time...it’s because he wants to stay inside” (227). Boo is actually scared of the world because he knows it’s cruel and unforgiving at times.
Johnny was known to be shy in many ways. As the book states him in the beginning on page 14, "Johnny wouldn't open his mouth unless he was forced to." He felt unsafe like an outcast in his family because his mother often ignores him and his father often abused him. Ever since then, he never talked to anybody, not even his gang in which he felt safe. Until that night in the movie theater Johnny with his friend Ponyboy, with two Socials named Sherri (Cherry) Valance and her friend Marcia, will forever make him talk especially Ponyboy's retelling them about how Johnny gets beaten up by the "four Socials in a blue Mustang while getting
Hale tries exceedingly hard to save those who were falsely accused of witchcraft. I, like Reverend Hale, do not like causing other people grief or offending them so I always overthink every decision so as not to do so. When I used to wrestle with my siblings, I always felt terrible if they were hurt. Reverend Hale never made an excuse for the witch trials he admitted he was wrong and tried to fix it.
There was one time when I took courage in life and it was when I stood up for my mom and I against my father. Ever since my older sister and I were little toddlers we were scared of our father. We never told him how we felt because we never wanted to make him mad because lets be honest he use to beat us, so we were just always scared. Well I finally stood up for how he would treat my mom and i. When I stood up for my mom and I was when my father decided he could talk to us however he wanted.
My dad leaving me and my mom has changed me into the person I am today because when I was a little younger I would never listen or even show respect to anyone. I was always so bad and I just cared about myself that was it even in school I was disrespectful to my teachers and I didn’t care. I would always get in trouble and talk back once he left I thought a lot about myself and I would tell myself that he left me and my mom because of me and because I was so bad and disrespectful and I hated myself I hated the person I turned into and I knew my mom did too. So I told myself that I was gonna change and for the better so I started listening in class,not talking back,showing respect to people,and being really nice to friends and family.
Unlike my father, my mother is very strict. When I was a teenager, my mother would punish me for simple mistakes. I remember her spanking my brothers and me for not cleaning the dishes well. One the other hand my father do not believe in spanking children. As a child, I loved going to my father’s house for the weekend; he would let me get away with being disobedient.
My family is very inspiring to me. I am very thankful that my parents brought me into this world. Growing up my parents always showed me how exactly things work in life. One of the hardest things that I had to accept was that I could not have everything I wanted. There were times when my parents spoiled me but I was always taught to be thankful of the things that I had and to not be so selfish.
