He was the most important person that led Emily’s behavior and made her act the way she did. Even when her father had died, Emily was still under his control. Because of the pressure that Emily’s father put on her, Emily’s mind and even her actions became very strange and altered. Emily’s father not only controlled her actions and how she felt about things, but he also affected her love and relationships with other men. Her father had said, “None of the young men were quite good enough for Miss Emily and such.” (364) Her father never allowed her to make her own decisions even when she was almost 30 years old.
If not for force via the doctors and ministers Emily doesn’t only have a lack of adjustment to life, she out right refuses to accept change in her life. Her father controlled every aspect of her life. He never even allowed her to find a suitor deeming all of the boys in the town “not good enough” (pg. 151) . Without him her life changes, without him there is no structure and she would have to become a functioning member of society.

In this world more care about money than people and more worry about small things than the family unit, brings people into family discussions and frustrations everyday. In the story A Visit to Grandmother Doctor Charles Dunford a gentle and warm man who overcomes the frustration of his painful past, start his hero’s journey when he decided to separate from his family at the age of fifteen. “I wanted to go to school. They didn’t have a Negro school at home, so I went up to Knoxville and lived with a cousin and went to school”, this was the answer of Doctor Charles Dunford when he is asked why he left home, but the truth hide something more painful and difficult to overcome.
He believes that he is always right, he is abusive, and is always being short-changed by life. Even though his wife is impartial to his actions, she looks at him with an “anxious face at his shoulder,” which describes how weary she is when in the presence of her husband (Faulkner 1961). My father was also abusive. I was not yet born so I was not victim to the abuse but my older siblings and mother were not spared. Similarly, Sarty’s whole family lives under a blanket of fear and anxiety due to his father’s insecurities, and resentment for people who belittle him.
Just remember no one said this was going to be easy, it’s not something that can be picked up quickly; it requires the balance of fun, cleverness, and skills. It’s always nerve-racking being a “first time” sitter, maybe you just haven’t had enough practice with your younger siblings or the idea of being responsible for someone else’s kids is overwhelming. Have no fear! Babysitting should be fun not scary; the only people you need to make a good impression on are the parents. They are looking for a straight edged, fun and responsible kid.
Although, I never really grew up with my parents, I still manage to know how to become responsible. I came from a broken family, so I don’t know the feeling of the one that’s spoiled, but I’m sure that I envy them. Growing up without a parent is hard, I am always lost and no directions to go to. Now that I have a daughter (she’s 4 years of age), I would like to teach her the value of money and become responsible to life. I am not a perfect father, I am divorced to my daughter’s mom, I can give my daughter anything she wants, but the two things that I always give my daughter, that is Time and Love.
This is not right or fair for the children growing up, because both parents should be in their lives daily to help in the upbringing.

Teaching a Boy to Be a Man Growing up as a kid you were use to seeing two-parent households, you saw the mothers tending to the daughters and the fathers tending to the sons. Both parents played in the raising of their child(ren). As time has passed it has become normal to see a single mother raising her child(ren).
My fathers departure was a major turning point in my life, it changed a lot of things for me and was very emotional. And just like Odysseus return, when he came back it was even more emotional and it was even a bit strange learning to live with him being present in the household each day. Some of the tasks I took on or had become responsible for where no longer required of me. Also, I noticed my mother was always very concerned for me, being her only son, and didn't want to see me grow up. When Tele.
Most workaholics are in marriages that have been going on for many years, and this lack of attention has been hurting their wife for majority of the relationship. Women claim that they have to raise their children alone. Emotional connections are lost when fathers work too much. “My husband works too much and it used to bother my child as he was growing up. He understands now because he is a little older, but just as I was, he was always worried that something happened to his father.
For me it was when I first separated from my partner and my kids decided they wanted to live with their father. When this event happened I never imagined my kids going through any suffering because they lived with their dad and I thought this is what they wanted to be, but they did. Quietly they suffered while both their dad and mom selfishly argued about what we wanted and felt we needed. We could never agree mutually on anything.
