From Scout’s way of referring to both classes, the readers can realise how society treats each class very differently. Jem and Scout respect Atticus and they look up to him - they are very proud of the fact that Atticus is their father. When Mrs. Dubose yells at Jem, telling him that his “father is no better than the niggers and trash he works for,” Jem destroys all the camellias in her garden. Jem does this because he thinks that Atticus is being insulted although he has done the right thing. From Mrs. Dubose’s words, the readers are also able to see how even Atticus was insulted just because he defended for a black.
He is comparable to Nathan in The Poisonwood Bible because he is unable to adjust to the new culture. He is a strong headed Native American who believes that his chi controlled his destiny. At the first of the book Okonkwo thought, "When a man says yes, his chi says yes also." He was a hard worker driven by the fear of becoming like his lazy, shameful father. Okonkwo thought if he worked hard his chi would reward him.
One of the first words children learn to say is “daddy.” This is one of the earliest signs that fathers play extremely large and important roles in their children’s lives. Part of the father’s role that can make or break the relationship with his child is the expression of fatherly love. Reuben Land of Peace like a River receives a constant stream of affection from his dad Jeremiah. In fact, the righteous Jeremiah Land is a near-perfect example of pure, fatherly love and even more so an example of God’s love for His children. Jeremiah isn’t just a tender father to Reuben; he treats his other children Swede and Davy with the same passion he shows Reuben.
People with disabilities are no less than regular people and they deserve the same love and respect. Brother obviously does not understand this because he is constantly acting like he is bettering Doodle’s life when his intent is his own personal gain. Brother feels the guilt of teaching Doodle to walk for his own personal gain when he reflects, “They did not know that I did it for myself, that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.” Brother finally learns what karma can do to a person when Doodle dies. The scene of Doodle’s death is depicted as “bleeding from the mouth, and his neck, and the front of his shirt were stained a brilliant red.” The traumatic experience of Brother seeing Doodle in such a state was when he learned the lesson of “What goes around comes around.” Questions and Answers: What do you think would have happened if Brother actually followed through with killing Doodle? I think Brother would live with the constant guilt of taking Doodle’s life.
Usually idolized by their children, fathers influence their child’s life. A child looks to the influential adults in his life for guidance on how to live in society. A father’s influence on his son remains one of the strongest in determining who that boy will become as an adult. In his novel, The Light in the Forest, author Conrad Richter explores this truth through his central character, True Son, a fifteen-year-old white boy kidnapped and raised since age four by the Indians and later forced to return to the white family he no longer knows. Throughout the novel, True Son remains greatly influenced by three fathers who try to teach him the values he will carry into adulthood: Cuyloga, his Indian father; Harry Butler, his white father; and the Sun, his spiritual?
Hinton uses the power of friendship to show how the greasers were like family although they all had different backgrounds. “He meant it when he said he didn’t care about his parents. But he and the rest of the gang knew Johnny cared and did everything they could to make it up to him” (88). This is the power of friendship because the gang is basically Johnny’s second family and they try hard to fill in the holes that his parents make. This is important because if it was not for the gang, Johnny definitely would not have been the person that he was and he would be a totally different person.
The way he handles his kids is his own business because it works for him. He teaches his kids the right things to do, how to treat people, and to look at everyone the same, and he expects them to do so. Jem and Scout are not perfect; however, they respect their father. On the other hand, Atticus is doing better than his sister, Aunt Alexandra. Francis was a racist, mean, little girl that only cares about her last name.
In sealand people are very forgiving of of the sins the people make and they do not care about deformities that some people might have. However the people of waknuk are not as forgiving. Especially Joseph Storm who is david's father, who beats david when he said “I could managed it all right by myself if I’d had another hand” (26).

He is still a fine father whose has unconditional love and commitment for Christopher which allows him to grow in spite of the numerous challenges he faces.

Jim was with Huck since the beginning and took care of him and cared for him also teaching him lesson on the way. Jim is trying to protect huck from the outside evil of the world. When Jim finds Huck’s dad’s body in the houseboat he would let Huck see the body because he wants huck to be happy “ Come in, Huck, but doan’ look at his face-it’s too ‘gashly’” ( Twain 57).
