This puts a child in a stereotypical position. People around the society will instantly think that the child is unfit and unhealthy. For instance, if an obese child were to go outside to the public, people would have a thought that the child is so unhealthy. An example is when I go to the shopping centres with my little cousin; people tend to move further away from him. I always notice people whispering to each other when they see my little cousin so I assume they are talking about his size.
It's a family film of shocking brutality, a romance haunted by sexual abuse, a fantasy of wealth fueled by crushing poverty. You won't find many fairy tales that open with a graphic torture scene. The cops think 18-year-old Jamal Malik (a sensational Dev Patel) is a fraud. Goaded by the show's host (the superb Anil Kapoor), the police inspector (Irrfan Khan) is determined to beat the truth out of Jamal before he goes back on the show and hits the jackpot of 20 million rupees. Presumably this is not the way Regis Philbin ran things when the show hit America in 1999.
His father was very laid back and accomplished nothing in life and Okonkwo hated him for it. Okonkwo’s eldest son Nwoye is lazy and weak from an early age. Okonkwo’s fear of his father’s laziness rubbing off on his son Nwoye changes Okonkwo from hero to villain when he beats him to make himself more masculine. What he thinks is helping his family is actually causing pain. Okonkwo’s wives are often beaten for the simplest of things, sometimes even for not explaining to him where they have gone.
When Okonkwo takes part in the murder of the young boy, his birth son, Nwoye, loses all respect for his father, and that is the turning point in Okonkwo’s life because he no longer is the valued individual among all members of his family. In Okonkwo’s understanding, “No matter how prosperous a man was, if he was unable to rule his women and his children (and especially his women) he was not really a man” (Achebe 58). This chapter drives the plot because Okonkwo is no longer respected by his only son, who was the one person that he had the most faith and hope in. In terms of character, Okonkwo did not respect his own father, so he wanted to make sure that this wasn’t the case with his children, especially his son. Okonkwo wants Nwoye to grow into a strong and powerful man,

Children’s inexperience to life is a great way for authors to create lesson learning, life-like situations for readers by demonstrating bad decision making. For example, Jackie in “First Confession” is a young boy consumed by his emotions and driven by strong views of his grandmother and sister. He threatens his sister with a butter knife and refuses to eat grandma’s cooked meals because of his reluctance to show any approval of either of them. The hypocrisy he sees in both of them leads him in refusal to interact and even shun them from his life. He eventually plots to kill his own grandmother!
These negative feelings are due to dads not regularly seeing and interacting with their kids. Comparably, couples without kids experienced barely any change in their sense of family well-being. Consequently this creates a since of detachment between all the parties involved. For moms who usually are the primary care taker of kids after the split it usually is an economic stress trying to raise kids on her own. Alas at she would jump at the very opportunity at a new relationship whether it’s healthy or not, and quickly sign herself up for another relationship that will end on bad terms, just for the help.
