As the boy grows older with this point of view, he comes to know the world as predominantly evil. The isolation of the father and son from the rest of the world because of their being ‘good guys’ and the overt maliciousness of everyone else they come into contact with enforces this view point. The father’s alienation is different. He becomes consumed with the boy’s survival and well-being, not his own. This causes him to make decisions that the boy views as wrong in order to survive.
The father's protectiveness is very evident many times throughout the novel, however one of the most notable events was when a man threatens his son with a knife and the father shoots the man in the head. Although this action was probably necessary, the fathers downfall is his suspicion that everyone is their enemy. His father's paranoia causes them to move constantly from camp to camp, consequently, never getting the chance to make friends with anyone. His son, on the other hand, is much more sensitive and innocent. He feels very safe with his father but at the same time he questions some of his decisions.

The best actor is Andrew Dillemuth, who plays the younger brother. His looks describe the part he plays—Andrew’s younger brother. Though his performance is very emotional, he does an amazing job in one scene: the part that he tells his brother his dreams and the reason why their mother left them.

To me the only time when a boy shows the weaker feelings is when they are by themselves and there is no other boys around them. An example of this was the Pop Warner football practice involving the small boys. The coaches are very hard on the boys and do not want them to play like a "girl", they want them to vicious and violent and hurt their opponent.

When the boys got on camera most of them said that they play football to hit other kids and hurt them.
Protecting your children won't do them any good at all if they never learn to live on their own. Since you won't always be there to watch over them, they have to learn to take care of themselves, and you have to have the strength to let go, as painful as that might be.

And that is what every father, even those of us in a dramatically more hospitable world than that of the book, should forever strive
