“To Kill a Mockingbird” Throughout the book ”To kill a mockingbird” by Harper Lee, many people might see Atticus as a failure at both his job and being a parent. Even though Atticus didn’t win the trial, there was still several was he succeeded throughout the story. For example, he stood up for a Black man, he gave his kids someone to be proud of, and he somehow managed to be a gentleman even though people were mean to him. Atticus always tries to stand up for the Black people, which is pretty insignificant during this time period. Throughout the story he also tries to tell his kids that you should never judge a man based on his skin color.
His parents actions when he was young left him with the idea that love and relationships are horrible and all it does is hurt us, he felt as if it’s not worth going through the pain and stress. He only saw the bad sides of love, and because of that, he kept himself from everyone; he never realised the good sides of love until later on in his life. Another main contrast between the two poems, is guilt. In both poems the poets both feel guilt, but in different ways. Harrison, who had a good and loving family life, felt guilty about the way he treated his father when mourning.
JOSIAH BONT by Jeremy Anderson Josiah Bont, in the novel “Year of Wonders” is a complex character that has a huge negative influence on his family and the people that come in contact with him throughout his village. Josiah’s love and respect for his family was diminutive for the majority of his existence in the novel, and his death suits that of a bully, who is violet to his family both physically and psychologically. His daughter Anna Frith sums up Josiah quite nicely “My father loved a pot better then he loved his children”. Josiah’s feeling towards Anna was a sense of un-accomplishment, but then opportunities for young, illiterate women in those times were scarce. He would often physically abuse her, and put her down in front of others.
Vladimir Santana In the Story "The Scarlet Ibis" by James Hurst The narrator and Doodle had close relationship with each other after training with his brother, who was the only one who cared about him.

Lastly, the fathers expectations of two characters does not align with the mothers, yet in one piece of literature the mother expected exactly what the father wished. The feeling of not conforming to societal and parental expectations and not being appreciated condemns youth into believing they are worthless and negatively affects their outlook on life. “Brother Dear” and “A Cap for Steve” both deal with the raw issue of parents not accepting children’s ambitions in life. The two main characters have different goals yet both goals resembled the life that they wish to live at that time. Greg, from the short story “Brother Dear,” does not desire to attend university and become a man of business yet that is all his father wants for him.
Atticus Finch As My Influence Atticus Finch was a man who fought for what he believed in. What he believed in was justice; the quality of being fair and reasonable. He is an influence on me for mainly that reason. In To Kill A Mockingbird, Atticus Finch played Scout’s father and a lawyer; a good one at that. Racism was not a thing of Atticus and he raised his children alone to feel the same way.
I felt angry about how Kress' irresponsibilities that caused his pets died in a famine because owners have the duties to feed their pets well. Since the beginning of the story told me about Kress was such irrepressible of making his pets suffered from starving, I think he would feel no guilty when he stopped feeding his sandkings to entertain his guests as he showed off to them in the parties. I think Kress was admirable as a human because everyone should not strew up animals' living areas as forcing fish to live on the ground. In the story of "Sandkings", Kress refused to listen to the sandkings' seller - Wo's warning about letting sandkings had wars by their own conflicts, and he didn't treat his pets nice. With what he treated the sandkings, they started behaving displeasures by twisted his sculptures on the castles.
They had thought of every way that could stop him from his bad behavior, but nothing worked. His dad believed that violence worked the best. Every time when Sonny got into trouble, his dad beat him, and Sonny would make him a temporary promise to be a good boy. But his dad lost trust in him when Sonny never kept his promises. His dad ignored when he didn’t go home or when he was sent to the Children’s Center; he said it was good riddance.

Angiri Valderrama Page 1 English 101 Date: Dec 2,2012 Sweet or Sour Parents? Why strict parents raised better kids??? Well they do because from an early age the established house rules and standard where they expect their child’s to put family first than any social engagement. Having some sore of list of rules gives a child boundaries such as not yelling, no smoking, no certain kind of clothing, no lying etc. Being a strict parent doesn’t meant that they will be inrespecfull or abuse towards their child, not at all.
