In other words, he would not have been able to preach to his kids about justice and standing up for what one believes when he himself had not stood for what he believed in. But, most of all he does it to uphold his self-worth. He wants to know that there's no reason for him to hang his head in shame and shy away when he's walking down the streets. He wants to live without regrets, and to him that's the only way you can say you are really living. Boo has been shut away from society all of his life with the exception of when he was very young he would sometimes be seen with his mother.
Anyone can create a child but it takes a real man to be there for his family. One thing that I learned from the man that raised me, my father, is responsibility. I do not try to be everyone’s friend and I realize that not everyone will like me no matter how much I try. What matters to me, at the end of the day is that when all is said and done, even if they don’t like me they can depend on me. Respect is also what makes a man, respect for oneself, your family, and women.
I’ve ran across it in real life and noticed it, and it wasn’t something I liked seeing I felt like the parents are stupid if they can change how their child is being raised and where but they chose not to move them. Anderson also speaks on how respect is such a powerfully loose used word in the code of the streets. When Anderson furthers his essay he makes distinction of the different types of families in the streets. The first is “decent”; he spoke on this with the intent of expressing the families that does everything in their power to make sure but their parents work hard and are willing to sacrifice for their children just so they will have, more classified as the working poor. Those who try to excel and go above and beyond usually deals with a lot while doing so, so thus for most people just work extremely hard to stay where they are now.
Parents are not prefect and everything they say may not be the right thing to do, but pleasing them is the best policy so kids should do it anyway. Twain warns “the best policy in the long run” (291) is to do what your parents say even when it is wrong, because if you do not and get caught, punishment will be waiting for you. That is advice that we have all heard, but find it impossible to follow while growing up. Since most children do not
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. Ironically, Atticus’s one insecurity seems to be in the child-rearing department, and he often defends his ideas about raising children to those more experienced and more traditional. Atticus Finch isn’t just an ordinary father. He teaches his children things no parent of that time period, or even our time period would even think of doing. Atticus tries to show his children how the world works from other people’s point of view.
A child doesn’t ask to be born into this world, but we have the choice to be parents if God sees fit. Perfect parents don’t just fall from the sky either, unfortunately for Dibs, he was born into a family who didn’t want anything to do with him. In the book Dibs in Search of Self, Dibs struggles to cope with life, but his parents end up struggling with their lives and the life of Dibs even more so. My personal take on this book is that it’s a bit rushed for what is supposed to be a case study, yet it still found a way to pull on my heartstrings. I wish that there was more detail surrounding Dibs’ behavioral issues.
Atticus also showed courage in the way he defended Mrs. Dubose when Jem and Scout were being yelled at by her all of the time. They really did not like Mrs. Dubose at all but Atticus understood and defended her without fear of what the kids thought. “She’s an old lady and she’s ill. You just hold your head high and be a gentleman. Whatever she says to you, it’s your job not to let her make you mad” (100). Atticus knew this would not make Jem happy when he said this, but he knew he had to send Jem and Scout in the right direction.
Because we are only human, we tend to make mistakes more often than not, and because we make those mistakes, it is hardly impossible to argue that humans are good. From a very young age, our parents work hard to teach us to share our toys and to play nice with our peers, but what some don’t realize is that if our parents weren’t around to teach us that, we would never learn, and eventually grow up to be unapologetically bad. This is because it is part of human nature to keep the best for ourselves, and to keep others away from what we feel is ours. Humans are not born with the ability to want to automatically share what is theirs, and this only adds to my point of view that much more. Cabrales 2 The only reason that the world is able to function correctly, the way it has for an extremely long time, is because of the laws that have come to surface in order to keep us in line.
They admonish us for "hitting" our kids and tell us about other options. I inform them that we love our kids very much and do not hit them often and they need to know there will be serious consequences for their misbehavior. However, my husband and I are interested in a professional opinion and want to know your viewpoint? A This is a very relevant dialogue, as more parents are leaving the traditional authoritarian and hierarchical model of disciplining their children, for a more gentle and supportive one. This approach does not discount that firmness, rules and expectations are part of a non-spanking way of parenting.
The first sort is really kind-hearted people who are always ready to help all people in the world no matter what social position they have The other sort who only try to look kind and friendly. But they are friendly only with people whom they are interested in. I hate such people because you don’t know if they are really good or only want to look friendly and I cannot trust them. A lot of things can change a person’s character. If you are a kind man and you have grown up with rude, cruel people you can become alike them or a bad man can become kind.
