Here we saw Elie’s feelings towards his father really come through. He doesn’t want to find his father. This shocked me when I read it because he was so against this when he saw it happening to other father-son duos. He said he would never wish he didn’t have his dad because he was the only family left. It’s sad to think that his feelings changed when he was put in the exact situation.
Chris never would have left without intending on returning. Chris’s dysfunctional family and his abusive father, prompted him to take the trip even more.

Cal – “He though sardonically of telling him about his mother, to see how he would handle I, but he withdrew the though quickly. He didn’t think Aron could handle it at all,” (Steinbeck 586).
They feel the need to because no one else will. That line of thought normally comes from having parents who constantly disapprove and ignore their children. They don’t feel like they can escape so some children turn to imaginary friends, others to bad behaviors, and others to self-love, or narcissism.

In Raney’s mind, Charles was placing blame on her, her family, and specifically, her mother who spent most of her time taking care of Uncle Nate.

She speaks of God and how much they love him and want the best for him. "I'm your mother," she said.
Young soldiers in war When young men and women choose to serve in the army, there will always be different opinions about it. In some families there are a sorrow about their loving children chooses to serve, but at the same time, there is also parents whose are proud.
