He also plays a part in affecting the town's morals throughout the novel by being modest, standing up for what he believes in, and seeing things all the way through. Atticus was a positive influence on the town of Maycomb, morally and racially in To Kill a Mockingbird. This research paper looks at how Atticus affected the people of Maycomb, including Tom Robinson, his children, and the townspeople in general. In order to defend Tom Robinson on trial, Atticus had to make many sacrifices that involved the town's opinion and views of him as a person. Though most of the people in Maycomb were racist in some way, many of those people knew Tom Robinson was innocent.
This quote is a very informative proof for Atticus’ philosophical vision. He is advising Scout not to judge people without knowing what their life is like (he refers to Burris Ewell). This is a very beneficial moment for Scout since she is growing up. By doing this Atticus teaches her that all people are equitable. Second, Atticus shows Scout that he has to defend black people, even if it is perceived as being unethical.
He sets a great example to them by doing the right thing and teaches them to not discriminate like he did not discriminate Tom Robinson, Atticus treats people with respect and is rarely rude to people, and if his children make a wrong decision and does something bad he does not beat them, which was common back in the day, or raise his voice at them allowing them to learn the right things on their own. Atticus Finch, a lawyer and devoted father, has the ability to see past the ill in people and teaches his children the same qualities. He provides his children with an education and allows them to develop their own personalities by giving them more freedom than the average child but also influencing them by his actions. A good sign that you a caring parent is through their children. Throughout the story you can
Exploring and understanding different characters decisions and beliefs truly helps reveal human morality. Aside from Scout, her father Atticus helps explore the good and bad of the Maycomb community. Atticus understands that, rather than being good or evil, everyone has good and bad qualities. The important thing is to appreciate the good qualities and understand the bad qualities by being comprehensive to others and trying to see life from their shoes. “You never really understood a person until you consider things from his point of view—until you climb into his skin and walk around it.” pg 30.
Write about the parenting styles of Atticus Finch and Robert Ewell in “To Kill A Mockingbird” In the town of Maycomb, children are expected to live up to there parents expectations, if not, better. Either children’s parents raise them to be just like them as Atticus Finch does, or the pressure of community expectations that a person lives up, or down, to their family, referring to Robert Ewell. Atticus’s parenting style is quite unique in that he treats his children as adults, honestly answering any question they have. He uses all these instances as an opportunity to pass his values on to Scout and Jem, because he is delighted in helping people see a situation in a new light. Atticus uses this approach not only with his children, but with all of Maycomb, and yet, for all of his mature treatment of Jem and Scout, he patiently recognizes that they are children and that they will make childish mistakes and assumptions.
He taught them some of life's valuable lessons and morals to go by. Atticus seemed to allow Jem and Scout quite a bit of freedom. I think this is because he felt that they should learn to live their own lives and if that meant them making mistakes and learning from them. Atticus resembles the typical well mannered father from the 1930's. There is a big difference between how people behaved back then and how they do today.
They have to be responsible men, able to be fathers and leaders in their community. They have to be willing to lead by example, embracing challenges and taking them on with positivity; showing that problems will arise, but how you respond to them is what is important. As for the mothers and children in today’s society, they are depending on men to build strong households and actively build a strong nation. It does not matter what others say nor do, African-American men have the responsibility of teaching boys how to be men, and teaching girls what qualities to look for in a man. The lesson does not start and stop with verbal instruction, but it starts and stops with being an
Skrzynecki’s words, “gentle father kept pace only with the Joneses of his own mind’s making” as quoted from his poem ‘Feliks Skrzynecki’ exhibits, through the descriptive word ‘gentle’ and the metaphorical use of ‘only with the Joneses of his own mind’s making’, the obvious admirations of son to father as well as the childhood lesson of staying true to oneself. Thus, upholding the concept of belonging in the English curriculum as well as continuing the analysis of Skrzynecki’s poems is vital as it permits students to understand the notion of familial relationships. After all without our family, who else could we belong to? Will Hodkinson’s feature article “Marked as an enemy of the state” also demonstrates the importance of familial belonging. Baldaev’s widowed wife Valentina expresses her strong emotions when referring to Baldaev’s drawings as “she didn’t know what to do with them, but she was concerned that her family would throw them out when she died.
I was also made aware of the world when Atticus told his children that everyone has a story and “you never understands a person until you consider things from the person’s point of view”. The characters in the story seemed believable. I could relate to them because my uncle and I were pulled over by white cops during my short stay in the United States simply because we were people of color. I especially liked Atticus because He portrays decency and goodness while protecting his innocent children. The story has a good theme” to Kill a Mockingbird” because Jem, Tom Robinson Dill, Boo Radley, Mr. Raymond) can be identified as mockingbirds-innocents who have been injured or destroyed through contact with
Self-concept and Perception Impact Interpersonal Communication Self –concept is an idea of the self constructed from the beliefs one holds about oneself and the responses of others. Jim’s self-concept impacted his interaction with his father in a negative way. This is only because Jim is not his father and doing things such as his father expected from him. The way we want our children to be is our own self-concept but it doesn’t always turn out that way. Jim’s self-concept is, “I just want to go to school and do the best I can and be normal.” Such as hang out, party a little from time to time, basically living his own life not the life of his father’s.
