No parent wants to see their children go out into the world exposed to its dangers, but parents also know that they can’t always be there to protect them. Although Atticus accepts this idea, he loves his children, Scout and Jem, with all his heart. Atticus believes that everyone is equal despite their outside appearance. “You never really know a person until you consider things from his point of view—until you climb into his skin and walk around in it,” he said. Most people judge only from what is on the exterior instead of trying to make sense of how different people see things differently under various circumstances.
“Look here; I won’t talk another inch with ye, if you say any jokes about him!” Tess clearly honors her family as she has threatened not to talk to her friends again if they mock her father any longer. However I believe that Tess is in denial about her father’s position and has to make excuses as to why her father is behaving inappropriately . For example it says “The clubbists tittered, except the girl called Tess- in whom a slow heat seemed to rise at the sense that her father was making himself foolish in their eyes.” If Tess honestly believed that her father was in a high position in society she would not feel embarrassed that he was raving about it in public. She would be encouraging him and proud of him. Then in addition she says “He’s tired that’s all,” showing that Tess is in denial about her father’s position.
If the grandmother stopped preaching about how the new world has fallen from the Christian faith, and opened her eyes to her real life, she would have saved the whole family from the misfit. Garo 2 The grandmother’s son, Bailey, seemed exhausted of having to take care of his own mother. He doesn’t bother raising his head when his mother is trying to get him to read the paper about “the misfit.” This creates Foreshadowing and a bit of irony to the story because in the end the misfit is what brings him and his family to his demise. Not only does he ignore his mother, but when she wants to take the children to see the old plantation, he sighs, gets aggravated and didn’t want to be bothered. Although her tired son may have a good soul, he is not a good man in the sense he seems tired and lifeless in the story.

“A Good Man is Hard to Find” By: Flannery O’Connor A normal family goes on a road trip, you have your Grandmother, Bailey the father, the mother who stays nameless as well as the baby, John Wesley, and June Star the other two children. A wonderfully complex story, has very many strong statements. A typical annoying grandmother who is always right and must have it her way at all time, and if she does not receive her wishes there are consequences. Two bratty children who do not have any respect for their elders, or anything else in that matter, a mother who does not have a voice in her own home. Bailey the father who still is his mother’s son and does as he is told when she tells him too.
Throughout "I know why the caged bird sings" Maya Angelou makes frequent references to religion; we know that it is going to play an important part in her life as the book opens with a recollection from the Episcopal Church. One of the many regular attendees at the Church is Maya's grandmother "Momma" who we learn, is very religious. In the absence of her mother, Momma and her religion are the two greatest influences in the young Maya's life. We learn that at 4am Momma rises to open the Store and to say her prayers. Momma thanks God for every mercy, has no bitterness for Uncle Willie's handicap and sings hymns to help her through times of crisis.
Baba never discusses her with Amir, and he doesn’t appreciate the qualities she passed down to her son “That was how I escaped my father's aloofness, in my dead mother's books” this being a disgrace to baba as he wished for a masculine son "Real men didn't read poetry-and God forbid they should ever write it!” this effectively showing baba’s disinterest in Amir as Baba believes a real man is interested in sports. One interpretation to explain his lack of conformity to the ideal model of manhood could be due to his mother as she feminizes him even though she's almost
In other words, he would not have been able to preach to his kids about justice and standing up for what one believes when he himself had not stood for what he believed in. But, most of all he does it to uphold his self-worth. He wants to know that there's no reason for him to hang his head in shame and shy away when he's walking down the streets. He wants to live without regrets, and to him that's the only way you can say you are really living. Boo has been shut away from society all of his life with the exception of when he was very young he would sometimes be seen with his mother.
I view the grandmother in this story as a southern “lady” with the best of intentions for her family; but, she is also self-righteous and self-serving. The first line of the story tells us the grandmother wants to go to Tennessee to visit friends. She then uses the news article about The Misfit as a reason to not to go to Florida and states that she could not answer to her conscience if she did. In addition, the grandmother knows her son Bailey does not like to travel with the cat, Pitty Sing. The grandmother proceeds to hide Pitty Sing in a basket and brings her along anyway.
He then asked Jim to set up a session with just Serena and himself so he could tell Jim his side of the story. Jim called him and Serena’s mom separately, and said that the next meeting would have to be with both adults and no child because the reason for treatment was so far removed from the nonsense that was going on. Jim felt he was being ineffective because of the difficult place they put him in. It is not an ethical violation to tape a session, but in this case it was an ethical concern because of what it was being used for. Serena’s father wanted to use it in court against her mother for personal gain.
