What Adolescents Miss When We Let Them Grow Up in Cyberspace By BRENT STAPLES y 10th-grade heartthrob was the daughter of a fearsome steelworker who struck terror into the hearts of 15-year-old boys. He made it his business to answer the telephone — and so always knew who was calling — and grumbled in the background when the conversation went on too long. Unable to make time by phone, the boy either gave up or appeared at the front door. This meant submitting to the intense scrutiny that the girl's father soon became known for.

I suspected that the boy had broke into my home and was attempting to steal from me so I told the boy to leave immediately.

The first incident documented by Bill is the theft of wood from neighboring homes under construction so that JD8 could build his own mail box; this event triggers the continuous observation of JD8 from there on. After several projects gone wrong and calls to the police, Bill has become fed up with his neighbor and is salivating over the opportunity for him to go to jail or move out of the neighborhood. Bill is clearly upset because he and his wife can’t sleep at night from the noise coming from JD8’s stereo system, or from the various animals that have been housed on JD8’s property. I don’t believe that JD8 is intentionally annoying Bill or any of his neighbors for that matter; I think that JD8 is just someone who comes from a different background than his fellow neighbors. I would consider JD8 the outlier of the neighborhood

The scenario I am about to analyze is occurring in a residential neighborhood at 3:15pm, near a middle school and library. A 42-year-old male has just murdered his next-door neighbor, and has his wife, son, and a family friend held up inside his house.

This incident is going to be utilized to map out and analyze the dynamics of hostage/crisis situations.
In “One Good Man,” the narrator wanders the house looking “for those things that could kill [his] father, for those things that had already killed him, or rather had already assigned to him an appointment with death” (Alexie 213). Here, he is not only seeking the buried sweets, but also the life experiences and hardships of his father. The ego, which corresponds with the main floor of the household, acts as the reality check to balance the desires of the id and superego and considers situations on an overall basis. Like the narrator’s search, this analysis will start on the most surface level, a public area for anyone who enters the household – the main floor. Here, sweets like donuts and soda are stashed away in
