The differences between the father and son are so abundant that Baba emphasizes, “If I hadn’t seen the doctor pull him out of my wife with my own eyes, I’d not believe he’s my son” (Hossieni 25). Amir listens to this hurtful quote and becomes more persistent than before to achieve his father’s friendship and adoration. Amir starts trying to intrigue his father that he even starts to play sports. It was apparent however, that this did not turn out to be one of Amir’s strengths. Baba’s shortage of emotion led Amir into an event between Hassan and himself.
Similarly, I feel that I was forced into a deeper sense of maturity that seemed beyond my age. Sarty and I share a very common bond due to the outlawed actions of our fathers.

Abner Snopes sharecrops to make a living for his family. He despises wealthy people. Out of resentment for wealthy people, he commits crimes in order to create chaos against his victims.
Andy’s father is an example of the role of self in others; you only become self based on the relationships you are in. If Andy’s father did not put the idea of possible self in his head, the ideal image we have of ourselves, than Andy would not have felt it necessary to be stuck up, and might have become friends with different types of people. Andy has lived his whole life trying to become the “ideal” son for his father, but in reality no one can be “ideal” or perfect. Upon entering the detention room, Andy and the other students quickly made their first impressions of one another. These impressions quickly placed stereotypes among them; Andy being the jock, Claire the popular princess, Bender the thief, Alison the psychopath, and the “Brian” being the genius.
In Montana 1948, Wesley Hayden has to make one of the toughest decisions of his life, do the right thing and arrest his brother, or let his brother off because they are family. In Wesley’s eyes, he felt that it would be better to stand up for justice instead of back up his family. As a result of standing up for justice, Wes paid a hard price. He was never his father’s favorite son, but when Wes arrests Frank (the perfect son), it doesn’t sit too well with Grandpa Hayden. Julian Hayden practically eliminates Wes from his family.
The only person Huck could relate to was his friend Tom Sawyer; unfortunately Tom wasn’t the best role model for Huck. Huck’s father was a drunk that was never there when he needed him.

Pap thought Huck was trying to out do him, "You've put on considerable many frills since I been away.
Jim v Jim: Huck's True Father Huckleberry(Huck) Finn is the protagonist in the novel Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain. Throughout his adventures Huck develops a great deal by the influence of those around him. His "Pap" Jim Finn and Jim the slave each leave profound, contrasting impressions on a young Huck Finn.

On the other hand Jim the slave truly cared for Huck and had helped him look deep inside himself and caused an internal battle between Huck's conscious and heart.
His father is an alcoholic and his older brother does not care for him. Eyeball, his brother is a friend of the gang leader Ace and when Ace threatens to burn Chris with a cigarette and even stab Chris, his brother does not stick up for him. He also bears a bad reputation in Castle Rock as a low- life because of his family: “He came from a bad family, and everyone just knew he’d turn out bad,” He also is a boy that is not easily intimidated because he has no problem hitching rides from strangers which was common practice during this time period: “Chris has hitched a ride to meet with the others.” This toughness makes him become a leader within his group of friends. When he is with his friends, his friends look up to him. Chris often demonstrates his leadership by taking charge and making decisions on behalf of the group: “Let’s look for some long branches.
you would lift up my pajama shirt and start hitting me on my stitches. You’d hit me as hard as you could” (329). Pete denied the accusation, even though deep down he knew it was true and felt guilty for what he had done. Donald, with his willingness to live for God and give strangers money, may seem on the outside to be a kind soul (and perhaps he truly did mean well), but upon observing his actions toward his brother, his
This lack of fatherhood is also shown in both Victor and Clerval’s father’s objection to learning. However Victor’s father had a different approach, he stated that the science used in victor’s books had been disapproved long ago and that they were ‘sad trash’. Freudian analysts claim that all sons feel they are in competition with their father and often feel in a battle against the father. This is shown when the rejection and lack of explanation and knowledge from victor’s father leads him to find out for himself, and it is in this task that his passion for science unfolded. Victor discovered ‘the elixir of life’ and that he was capable of ‘bestowing animation upon lifeless matter’ as his knowledge increased.
