She tried to convince him that in the Indian culture, long hair is a sign for masculinity and balance but Wind-Wolf was too hard-headed to understand. Wind-Wolf’s father decided to take a stand so he wrote a letter to Wind-Wolf’s teacher and explained to her that Wind-Wolf was an intelligent boy. Wind-Wolf was not one of the kids that learned things from a textbook, he learned things through life. For the first five years of his life, he was surrounded by various religions including Protestant, Catholic, Asian Buddhist, and Tibetan Lamaist. He was also exposed to many sacred traditions, specifically the Indian traditions.
At the beginning of the novel, Jem Finch is portrayed as having a childish form of courage where he thought the concept of bravery was accomplishing dares imposed on him. When Dill dared Jem to touch the Radley house, Jem was undecided for a few days as he was terrified of the Radley house, but he also wanted to defend his honour as he had “never declined a dare” according to Scout. He eventually did the dare as he “wanted Dill to know once and for all that he wasn’t scared of anything”. This form of bravery was not respected by the adults in the neighbourhood which is evident from the way Atticus responded when he was told about the children playing in the Radley’s yard. He warned Jem "to mind his own business and let the Radleys mind theirs".
Applicable Theories of Criminal Behavior Social Risk Factors: He didn’t always live in poverty, but once his family wasn’t there he was in poverty. He also received rejection by his peers, when they often teased him because of his deformity. Parental and Family Risk Factors: His mother used a very authoritarian style to shape and control her sons. This caused irreparable damage to Gein throughout growing up. His mothers parental monitoring was too much, she never let Ed do anything and always kept him hidden.
Derek’s family and members of the public had to fight to get a pardon, just like they had to fight to save him from capital punishment in the first place, and that had failed. It took almost 45 years. Right from the start, there was no solid case presented in court to convict Bentley. The fact that Bentley had developed epilepsy after a life threatening fall when he was 5 and was proven to have the mind of a young child, even in his late teen years, did not seem to appear in court as defence for why he should not be hanged. This is one example of the many unfair advantages that the legal system had over Bentley.
Sonny's brother wouldn't listen or understand to what Sonny wanted.Later in the story they have a better relationship and Sonny's brother realizes that music helped Sonny through all of his suffering and it also helped them both as brothers to finally bring them closer together.

Sonny's blues by James Baldwin has several themes.The theme of music and the theme of suffering were very important in this story because they all suffered in life and with their relationships.Music helped Sonny with his addiction and it also helped the brothers with their
Familial: The first thing that comes to mind is that Anthony is only described as being aggressive toward his younger sister, Angela. I tend to think that this conflict and aggressive behavior may be due to the fact that he is the first born and had three years of his parent’s full attention until Angela was born. It may be difficult for Anthony to deal with sharing attention with Angela. Also, Gino sees Anthony’s aggression as a typical boy behavior and does not appear to discipline Anthony for it. As far as discipline goes, there is no consistency between Gino and Denise’s styles and the two even argue about this in front of the children.
Based on the attachment theory which places great emphasis on the early relationship children have with their primary care-giver, it could be argued that Samuel’s poor attachment contributed to Bundy’s psychopathy by disrupting the process that leads to the development of morality. Bundy had no other male-figures in his life to look up to or act as a positive role model so it was only natural that he imitated the behaviour that his grandfather exhibited. In fact, Ted occasionally exhibited disturbing behaviour even at a very early age and his aunt Julia later recalled awakening one day from a nap to find herself surrounded by knives from the Cowell kitchen; her three-year-old nephew standing by the bed, smiling. As a boy Bundy roamed his neighbourhood, picking through trash barrels in search of pictures of naked women as he had been introduced to pornography by his grandfather. Ted may also have been catapulted into his killing streak by the revelation that his mother had deceived him his whole life (by claiming that she was his sister), creating resentment towards women.
Unit 1 - Drama Exploration of the theme ‘Peer Pressure’ - Documentary Response To present the theme of Peer Pressure, I’ve used the stimuli of the 1953’s Case of Derek Bentley. He was a 19-year-old with a mentality of a 11-year-old, due to the bad injury he experienced during the Blitz in WWII. This lack of mentality gives him the innocence of a child with the physical features of a man. He was unable to think as an adult and often gets aid from his sister to go through his daily life. Due to his parent’s very strong will for him to go out and explore the outside world, Derek often kept himself in and sat around in his room, smoke and read comics, isolating himself from the outside world because he was afraid of it, showing the amount of stress he receives from his parents and peer pressure in such ways.
He was left alone in a dark room because Lester didn't want his child to be a "sissy", he then finds Denny dead on his back. Since then Lester remembers all the short stories which were told by his mother when he was little and develops fear within himself. When his second child dies that is when he fears the place he lives in and the closet. Lester didn't want another child because he was afraid it can happen to his third child but of course, Lester ended up having another child. When Andy was born, he moved places because there were too many bad memories and he added "And too many closets."
Resolving this conflict leads to gender identity. The Oedipus complex is when a boy wants to possess his mother because she met all his needs, but this rests on castration anxiety, as he believes his father will castrate him. The Electra complex for girls is that girls are envious of males because of their penis, and girls identify with their mother because they are similar (penis envy). Successful resolutions of these complexes lead to identification with the same sex parent, and then gender is
