He looks at everyone’s, and tries to be just in every way possible, even if it is just a small brawl between Jem and Scout. It proves that he is always strives to be unbiased in every way.

Another one of Atticus’s character traits that Lee writes about is Atticus’s tolerance. Mrs. Dubose, a frail old lady, spreads invidious comments regarding Atticus, but he would still “sweep off his
Throughout the story he also tries to tell his kids that you should never judge a man based on his skin color. One day Scout comes home from school in a bad mood. She says to Atticus that she doesn’t want to go back again, because she doesn’t like her teacher. But Atticus tells her something that is also very important in his
His ex-friend Bennie Reid taught Paul that sometimes relationships ‘just happen’ even though Paul did not like the prospect of befriending Bennie largely because of his position in the social hierarchy, he still could not abandon Bennie and be left with nobody. Paul’s relationship with Keller is therefore very important to him because although Paul might be at the bottom of the school hierarchy along with Bennie, he is as his parents often remind him, a talented musician. The maestro sees Paul’s arrogance for what it is and conversely devises his teaching methods to suit the position at which Paul was at. As this was initially an insult to Paul the relationship started with no mutual respect, Keller having respect for no one in his surroundings treated his student as he would anyone else. Paul’s first impressions of Keller are ‘Misleading, of course’ and that he is a bad teacher because of Keller’s patronisation.
Tom is criticizing the fact that he is not allowed to smoke under Widow Douglas but she herself is. Twain is attacking a problem in our society that exists today.

Hornbeck's statement makes the reader understand that even the largest group or society can feel challenged or threatened by one single person. During the play, this person happened to be Bertram Cates, a young, mannerly school teacher. Although Bertram Cates was not causing destruct and conflict on purpose, he became a threat to everyone around him because he did what he thought was the truth. He explored outside the lines of which he's always been taught, and unlike any other individual in his town, he went with what he believed. This caused a raging uproar because during that time era, science was not yet studied the way it is today.
Willy thinks that if he were to tell the truth to his kids, they wouldn’t respect him for not being as successful as he claims to be.

Donny’s mother lacked self- confidence and cared more about what other people thought about her as a parent. The conflict between mother and her son is ironic. Unfortunately, Cal, Donny’s tutor, failed to support and motivate Donny to do his homework. Cal represents an immature, Peter Pan like kid himself. Tyler even described them in the same manner: long hair, faded jeans, fans of rock music, careless, and young.
These days the kids get time outs and the parents try talking to them as if they were mini adults and can understand and grasp exactly the point you are trying to get across to them. They can't! They say they do to get you to shut up, but they didn't understand a word you just said. Obviously the time outs and talking do not work because our kids just keep doing the same thing they got in trouble for over and over again and we keep asking ourselves why? Does he have ADD or ADHD?
His jealously of Finny’s trait increased throughout the novel because Finny continued to smooth-talk to get out of trouble. Another thing that Gene was jealous of was Phineas’ tendency to be daring. It was Finny’s idea to jump off the tree. “No one but Phineas could think up such a crazy idea.
