I thought he is the youngest so I let him play first. A few moments later when I wasn’t looking, the younger boy’s back was punched by the older boy. I think/feel: • I did not have time to patiently listen to their story as I was rushing to my next lesson. • I did not look for witnesses or think carefully of the consequence of my judgement and thoughtlessly judged that the younger boy was innocent because of his age and his tears. • I felt very sorry for both of the children although the older one made an inappropriate act of revenge.
Someone who blames everyone else for the consequences of their actions? Someone who doesn't own-up to their actions and try to make the situation better again? Cole is that 'someone'. He goes to the island mad at his parents because all the other times that he was in trouble with the law, his parents would pay the fees and get him out, however, this time, none of that happens.

Although Gene’s inability to trust is a prime factor on their flawed relationship, it is not the only one. Gene’s incapability to control his flashes of aggression is another factor in his and Finny’s broken friendship. When Gene and Finny are up on the big tree, Gene feels a surge of aggression, bends his knees, and knocks Finny off the branch.
Since the day Amir is born, he feels that his father dislikes him. While his mother gave birth, Amir continually felt as though he had to fix the ruining of his father’s life of love with Sofia. After all, they did not have much similarity, leading to a problem; Amir really had nothing to do that could affect Baba since they have nothing similar. Baba was more energetic, confident, and big on taking risks whereas Amir is not. 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).
He spent his money foolishly and couldn’t keep a dime to his name. Madison and Dolley where very disappointed. Even though they had tried they’re hardest with they’re son they always felt a little broken hearted about how to situation had turned out. They somehow believed that it might have been they’re faults but Madison and Dolley did everything they could have
But I hadn’t turned out like him. (3) | Heartbroken- He thinks his father hates him and it makes it hard for him to do anything because he always looks for his approval and he can’t stop what he things because he had no control over what happen to his mother. | I was going to win, and I was going to run that last kite. Then I’d bring it home and show it to Baba. Show him once and for all that his son was worthy.
