The voice of Frank shows the immaturity of him during his childhood. That juvenile voice magnified the intensity of the book and grabs a hold of the readers attention. Frank McCourt, it seems, intended to write this book for anyone who has lived, or is living a hard childhood. This audience could relate with what he went through.

Humanities Sabrina Huaraque Ender’s Game essay 10/14/2012 “ In the moment when I truly understand my enemy understand him well enough to defeat him, then in that very moment I also love him” * Ender Wiggins Through out the stretch of Ender’s Game, Ender is obviously very logical in his decision making and his leadership style but I believe that what makes him such a good leader is his ability to lead with a heart. To think his decisions though considering how they will affect the people around him. Also through the book he learns to care for people and do everything in his power to help them. For example while training Bean, Ender pushes him as far as he knows bean can go but at the same time he truly care for Bean’s well being.
The children mature when they learn about empathy, courage and hypocrisy and how they can affect a small town. They learn through lessons, situations, through education, and by example of other characters’ actions. Their father teaches them and reflects with them on how empathy, courage and hypocrisy are very relevant in their lives. Atticus tries to convey lessons to his children throughout the entire novel.

Here, another form of mayhem occurred, and it became clear that this was a normal occurrence among 10 year-old boys. In relating this article to what I have learned in Microeconomics thus far, I came across many different topics that could relate to the outcome of the children’s behavior throughout the game, as well as what the future could look like for the creator of Clash of Clans. Clash of Clans is a game that gives the user the ability to become a clan leader, in which he or she builds a community and attacks others. The game also gives the clan leader the ability to exclude others from joining the clan, and this is where the bullying takes place. When the author’s sister found out that her son was a clan leader and had been excluding other kids at school, she was shocked.

This early stage of life is where social stereotypes begin to take effect. For example, in the psychoanalytic theory of Sigmund Freud, in the third stage of psychosexual development a male child encounters the Oedipal Crisis, a time when the only way in which he can cope with his desire for his mother and fear of his father is to completely identify and incorporate his father's characteristics within himself (Noppe 1). When children enter school they are separated into gender-specific groups, governed by their peers. Sports, strength, and toughness become part of a boy’s everyday life. Playing with dolls or wearing makeup or nail polish quickly becomes identified as feminine.
