I don’t understand how father didn’t try to protect his son no matter what could’ve happened. Most of the time, he just sat there and didn’t do anything.

He would sometimes argue with mother but that never worked out because she was always in control.
Roosevelt’s upbringing did and didn't make it easy for him to understand the concerns and fears of ordinary Americans. The worries and fears for ordinary American's were things such as 'am I going to lose my house', 'will I lose my job' and 'where is my next meal coming from'. Roosevelt's upbringing didn't help because he was an only child in a rich family . This didn't help because he was pampered by his mother and got everything he wanted. He was educated at home so he had no real idea of what life was like outside of his family which may of created an ignorance to what was going on around him.
Although the boy’s parents’ hesitate to welcome it to their home and state that the lost thing is “filthy” and “might have strange diseases” the boy still provides it a hidden shelter and food to eat. ➢ Shean contrasts the appearance of the creature in size, shape and color with others in the urban environment to demonstrate how people do not belong in society because of their indifferences. This reflects they way in which physical disparities can potentially become barriers to belonging. An example of this would that all the humans in this book are the same; pale skin, straight eyebrows and elongated faces. In comparison other characters and creatures in the book are seen to have odd appearances.
Both honest mistakes that he didn’t even know he made. The ignorance shown towards Lennie in the novel was due to the time period and the people’s lack of knowledge. People in the story like “The boss” just thought that Lennie wasn’t smart because he just didn’t talk much unless it was to his best friend George. There was ignorance in Raymond because his brother thought that he could remove Ray from his schedules at his home and take him with him.

His father didn’t tell him why they were there, what they had done to the country and who they were. Because none of this was explained to Bruno he had just thought they were normal people and he wanted to be with other children so badly. Bruno is always curious and that causes him to find Shmuel. Because Bruno’s Mother and Father did not tell him about Jews and what is really happening in the camp, and also Shmuel wouldn’t tell him because he wanted a friend and he wanted decent food.

People who lost their jobs could not feed themselves, pay their rent, and support their family. This forced families together in crowded houses or apartments. People couldn't afford to separate or get divorced because they needed the income of everyone to pay the rent. Men who lost their jobs often felt ashamed of themselves. The man from the “Cinderella Man,” had been ashamed as well as felt unimportant, but he loved his family so much that his pride did not overcome his feelings for his
People are struggling to survive everyday because they have no food and shelter. These people may always dig through the trash to find something to eat for the day, not knowing if they will find anything. Families may always live in horrible conditions, having no other choice, because they do not have enough money. It’s extremely hard for them to find well paying jobs in these countries. For most of these people it’s nearly impossible to get out of poverty because they were born and raised in that culture, unless other people who aren’t in poverty help them out.
Instead, he stereotypes Teddy as a bad child, and assumes that he is up to no good.

In the end, Nolan seems to be suggesting that the conflict in this story is an unfortunate but all too common situation that could easily have been prevented if
