Troy Maxson did not have an involved father growing up, which would attribute to why Troy struggles with many problems. When Troy left his family behind and moved to Pittsburgh, he met a girl and had a child with her. However, Troy wasn’t there for his new born son because he was incarcerated during his son’s childhood. According to Rosenberg’s and Wilcox’s research, as Troy did not have an involved father, he was more likely to make trouble in his environment and become a violent person. Another part of the study was about the insecurities and confidence issues children who grow up without involved fathers have.
They knew he did not have a father, or his family did not have any money. It was never spoken of until one particular Thursday when the teacher went around the classroom, and asked each individual how much would their daddy be giving to the Community Chest. She asked everyone except for Gregory, and I am most certain that he was ashamed at that point. You can tell in his reaction, “What is it now? You forgot me?” Gregory exclaimed (167).
He does things for the better of his reputation, not thinking about how it would affect other people. Bob Ewell is the father of eight kids and he lost his wife.

This part of the book, however, isn’t portrayed in the movie.
Who was the first owner of Ruby Pier. A lesson for him to forgive his father. It was also difficult for me to forgive such father, a father who’s been cruel to him since childhood. Even after his knee was injured because of the war. A father who never talk to him since then.
His early life was that he started schools and had passing grades until 10 grade then he quit school so that he can work with his dad in his candle and soap shop. Then instead of school he read books then got very smart off of that. What benjamin wanted to be was a sailor ever since he got out of school. His father disapproved that he could be a sailor because his older brother jasiah never came back from sea. So instead of going to sea he had to go to his older brother 's printing shop.
He didn’t know how to communicate with others very well because he had been without it for so long. He was still determined to deliver the box but didn’t know how. He still had not opened it because that would ruin the complete 5 years he saved it for. He followed the address on the box, but when he arrived on the farm no one was home. He left the box on the porch of the farmhouse and left a note that stated “This box saved my life.” He was leaving the farm and was headed back to his home.
From 1929 to 1939 the Great Depression turned people’s everyday lives into rough seeming to be never ending days of trying to find work and scraping up enough money to buy small unsatisfying amounts of food to feed their families. In Mildred Taylor’s Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, the Great Depression plays a vital role in the story because, both blacks and whites were suffering due to poor conditions (also lead to sharecropping), people started losing their belongings and jobs, and the whites still thought they were better than blacks. In Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, Mildred Taylor writes, "Neither boy had on shoes, and their Sunday clothing, patched and worn, hung loosely upon their frail frames. "(Taylor 152). This quote from Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, shows that the boys didn’t have enough money to buy any decent clothes (or sometimes food) and this is how it was for many people, black or white.
Growing up, Scrooge was abandoned by his father and started out poor like everybody else in the lower-class. As a child, his father blamed him for many misfortunes, including the death of his mother. During his early Christmas time, other children were able to go home and spend the holidays with their families while Scrooge had to stay at school year after year. His childhood wasn’t like the others. It was a rough and depressing time for him growing up.
In both plays, they find they can only ever improve their circumstances through hardship: in Fences, Troy was able to purchase a home because of his brother’s injury and permanent disability from the war. In A Raisin in the Sun, the family is only able to move into a better home because of Big Walter’s death. The message is clear: black people are not allowed to succeed on their own merits, and advancing their situations comes at the cost of blood. Walter, powerless, says, “I’m thirty-five years old; I been married eleven years and I got a boy who sleeps in the living room—and all I got to give him is stories about how rich white people live.”
When becoming a non-custodial father you face a lot of challenges when it comes to you and your children and the relationship/ actions of your child 's mother. Too many fathers start out as “Santa Claus or an activities director” and as time goes on, their visits become fewer and fewer (Thompson, 1994). Children whose parents weren’t married see even less of their dad after the break-up. This lack of contact hurts the father and child. Mandel and Sharlin (2006) report “70% of criminals who were sentenced to long prison terms grew up without a father when they were children”.
His father was not around when he was born so he was raised by his mother on Section 8 Housing. Gabriel knew that he would face obstacles in his early age due to his weight; one obstacle was bullying.

He/she must also realize their negative repetitive actions. Finally the client needs to speak on his or her behaviors. As can be seen in the case, the 16 year old has no connection with his father; last anyone heard from the father was when the child was 8. The fact that his father left and has no communication leads me to believe that the father didn’t have a secure attachment to his son, as he would leave and not stay in touch
However, my father didn’t believe in earning an education, he told me that I had to work hard for my money and that’s how you move up in the world. During my senior year in high school, I met a boy named Xavier, who I ended up hanging out with during lunch and at times outside of school. I had never been in a relationship, since my father wouldn’t let any boys come around the house and told me I couldn’t date. Over the years, my curfew was extended a couple hours, so now I didn’t have to be home until 11 at night. By this time, I was working at Sears at Northridge Mall in the clothing department, where Xavier would occasionally come over to see me.
