It sounded like the parents didn't even care about him and his older sister because they are the one that raised themselves. If I were in his position I would had done things to seek for their attention but in a more positive ways because there are also lots of other stuff to seek their attention not just doing bad stuff. It was also his fault because he was seeking their attention from doing bad stuff rather than good stuff like not dropping out of school. I feel like when he said that the parents did their best raising them was wrong because in the article it said that "When my father arrived at the courthouse for the release hearing, the judge wouldn't let my father drive me home because Dad had shown up drunk." (53) Why would his dad show up drunk when he was going to be release from jail.
.” (7). Papa is explaining to her why he is so worried about the land being taken away and why he works so hard. It is hard for him to be away from his family for so long, but he knows if he doesn’t, they would probably not be able to keep the land. Papa would love to be with his family, but knows he cannot. Cassie would rather Papa be home more often, but understands how important the land is to their family.

This shows that how some kids don 't even any where to sleep or live because their parents either don 't want them anymore or they don 't have parents.

The villagers on “The Lottery” by Shirley Jackson are afraid to let go of their tradition, the lottery. They are concern of unknown consequences that will happen if they change their old customs. So, for every year, the villagers gather at the square to do the lottery at 10 AM . The villagers are afraid to quit their outdated tradition because they think that changing their old customs will only bring trouble. They do not want to follow the other towns that had given up the lottery.
Secondly, these families have very different takes on education. For instance the Cunninghams want their kids to be successful and have an education while the Ewell’s come “the first day every year then leave”(27). Lastly, they are complete opposites when it comes to working. Mr. Cunningham was eager “to keep his land”(21), but Mr. Ewell was so poor and lazy that landowners let him “hunt out of season”(31)
Lastly the parents have no control over their kids. For example the text says “You know how difficult Peter is about that (shutting the nursery) when I punished him a month ago by locking it for even a few hours the tantrum he threw!” This shows that the parents have no limits for their kids and their kids barely get punnished. Another example is from the text “Kids and Tech” “ Their brains (kids brains) get used too much… stimulation and in absence of these… they get anxious, restless, bored, and aggressive. In relation to this in the text The Veldt it says when the parents turn off the nursery the kids get aggressive and worry. This means that the parents can 't say no to things their kids want because their kids will throw tantrums because they are not punished well.

He also has a very big ego and hates anyone messing with him making him look worse than he seems. Bob Ewell will go to crazy limits to get the blame on others to keep himself off the
Atticus responded, " 'Not in money, but before the year 's out I 'll have been paid '" (Lee 27). The Cunninghams were farmers, and would pay favors back with the crops they grew on their farm. This topic was sensitive to Walter, because he did not want the entire class to know about his financial situation, even though everyone in Maycomb already knew everyone’s business. In To Kill a Mockingbird, Novels for Students, writer Darren Felty displays his connection to the events on Scout’s first day of first grade, “[Scout] cannot understand, for instance, her young teacher 's lack of familiarity with the town families and their peculiarities, such as the Cunningham children 's poverty and pride. Later, Atticus explains to Scout that she must put herself in others ' places before judging them, one of the many lessons she learns by making mistakes” (Felty 287).
A year passed on with the marriage and they had a second child (me). My sister started to think that with another child less attention for her, she was right. Soon many fights all over the house started. First, it was my dad and sister fighting that she saw someone in his pole barn and he didn’t believe her. Next, my mom started yelling at him because he lost his job with drinking and drugs.
Johnny is very weak and shy, so he runs away for the day or night, and comes back the next day. Ponyboy states “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 clear down at our house” (12). His parents do not pay attention to Johnny, but when they do, they beat Johnny up. Likewise, Dally’s parents do not care about anything he does. For instance,

After she heard those stories she never looked at him the same she hated him...literally. One day she and her father had to go into questioning with Trujillo because they found Leo’s paper and they made a deal that if she rolled a high number he would send her to law school and she did so the deal was made and her father went to jail and when he was released he died from being tortured.When Minerva finished law school she was upset because she didn’t get her license to practice and she knew Trujillo had something to do with it so she came up with an idea to start a movement against him to help everyone get freedom and it worked but in a tragic way, her and her sister Mate were in this movement which caused both of them to go to jail.
