The father of Tom abandoned him, Laura, and Amanda, forcing Tom to provide for the family. This conflicts with his desire to follow his dreams. There is a notion of constant fear Amanda has of her son following in his father's footsteps. He goes out every night and drinks, telling his mother he goes to the movies.

For example my math teacher left the class for 5 minutes to use the bathroom one day, I was sitting down doing a task then two kids got up and started kicking me and pouring all my things out of my back pack. Everyone looked and laughed. I did not know what to do, I was in a great amount of pain and had no one by myside. I felt if I told my teacher or my dean I would be beat up again for being a snitch.Throughout the entire year every single day something new would come about. So I told my mom what was going on and her and my uncle got me in boxing to help increase my self esteem up.

Today school is supposed to get children ready for the world and get them a good job, so they can flourish as an adult. However, they strip individuality from the children and morph them into obedient soldiers.
The only group of people that I am jealous of are the one that’s good at sports. I can manage in English and Maths. I can scrape C’s and occasionally even C’s, so I’ve never been made fun of. However, it is a simple fact that I am just not good at sports. If I try to kick a ball, it veers off in the completely wrong direction, and volleyballs are always drawn to my head.
