An example of someone like that would be Johnny; he hates his parents so much that he refused his mother to let her see him in the hospital. “I've got a RIGHT to see him! He's my son!
Darkness soon arises though as Dick Gregory meets his teacher. To him, she thought that he was a stupid child. She didn’t think he was kind, helpful, or special. Of course, this may not be the case at all. In Greg’s story, his teacher skips him in turn for the community chest.

Mrs Reed views Jane as a burden, she treats Jane horribly as is shown in the beginning of the first chapter, “…she had dispensed from joining the group… contented, happy little children.” When Jane tried to defend herself Mrs Reed disregards her and tells her not to talk back as it is rude, without giving Jane a chance to explain her side of the story. The next encounter in the book is between Jane and John (Jane’s cousin and Mrs Reed’s only son).
