The father's protectiveness is very evident many times throughout the novel, however one of the most notable events was when a man threatens his son with a knife and the father shoots the man in the head. Although this action was probably necessary, the fathers downfall is his suspicion that everyone is their enemy. His father's paranoia causes them to move constantly from camp to camp, consequently, never getting the chance to make friends with anyone. His son, on the other hand, is much more sensitive and innocent. He feels very safe with his father but at the same time he questions some of his decisions.

Huck has to achieve some sort of balance between his natural inclinations and what he has been taught by society. From reading through this work multiple times, it would seem that Huck is almost obsessed with Tom. It is evident in the things he says such as, “I did wish Tom Sawyer was there”, or “I wish Tom Sawyer was here” and “I reckoned Tom Sawyer couldn't a done it no neater himself”. Those are a few examples which would seem to corroborate with this.
Amir only has one thing on his mind in the beginning of the novel, he is ambitious for his father's affection and approval. Amir is very different than his father, Baba. For example, he enjoys reading and writing and he is a coward. Baba sees this as a weakness, and since Baba is a strong, brave and confident man he disapproves of his son which leads him to give Amir less affection than he would if the two were more alike.
