Since the day Amir is born, he feels that his father dislikes him. While his mother gave birth, Amir continually felt as though he had to fix the ruining of his father’s life of love with Sofia. After all, they did not have much similarity, leading to a problem; Amir really had nothing to do that could affect Baba since they have nothing similar. Baba was more energetic, confident, and big on taking risks whereas Amir is not. The differences between the father and son are so abundant that Baba emphasizes, “If I hadn’t seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I’d not believe he’s my son” (Hossieni 25).
At this point, Asbury feels very disheartened in his life for the things he has done. “What’s wrong with me is way beyond you” (O’Connor 95). Which means, Asbury chose his fate by not letting a doctor see him in person, which then brought Asbury down into a huge dump, making him feel more disappointed for what he has done. Secondly, he took a dangerous risk of drinking unpasteurized milk to make him suffer throughout this illness, “We’ve got to think free if we want to live free” (O’Connor 98)! Again, through Asbury’s mind he thought wrong when it’s not going to hurt his mother to lose two or three glasses of milk a day, when really it hurt Asbury himself by drinking the outdated milk, to make Asbury the person he is now.
Someone who blames everyone else for the consequences of their actions? Someone who doesn't own-up to their actions and try to make the situation better again? Cole is that 'someone'. He goes to the island mad at his parents because all the other times that he was in trouble with the law, his parents would pay the fees and get him out, however, this time, none of that happens. It was his mistake for beating up Peter anyways, yet he's mad at his parents and his lawyer because they didn't get him out.
Because of the state of mind of Rob Jr., he did not know whom to believe, he was torn between the wraths of hell and his parents. Rob Jr., sincerely believed that he would end up in the ‘eternal fires’ of hell, he felt compelled to stay because he did not want to be thrown in the fires of hell. Because of the brainwashing, Rob Jr. believed Mr. Marsden and decided to stay, which constituted assumed false imprisonment. Because of the confusion caused Rob Jr., by Mr. Marsden, the church held him against his will and the will of his parents. Also, the church did not allow Rob Jr. to see his parents.
Baba never discusses her with Amir, and he doesn’t appreciate the qualities she passed down to her son “That was how I escaped my father's aloofness, in my dead mother's books” this being a disgrace to baba as he wished for a masculine son "Real men didn't read poetry-and God forbid they should ever write it!” this effectively showing baba’s disinterest in Amir as Baba believes a real man is interested in sports. One interpretation to explain his lack of conformity to the ideal model of manhood could be due to his mother as she feminizes him even though she's almost
It was so ludicrous I wanted to cry.” (Knowles 66) In addition, after Finny’s fall, Gene tells no one about what he has done. Gene ignores the fact that the guilt is deeply hurting him, and is unable to go to anyone with the truth of what he has done. Although Gene’s inability to trust is a prime factor on their flawed relationship, it is not the only one. Gene’s incapability to control his flashes of aggression is another factor in his and Finny’s broken friendship. When Gene and Finny are up on the big tree, Gene feels a surge of aggression, bends his knees, and knocks Finny off the branch.
