"First of all,' he said, 'If you can learn a simple trick, Scout, you'll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks. You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view-“ (p.39) iii: His sympathy: Atticus understands how people feel and think. He doesn’t judge others because of what they look like. "Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them.
One of the most important lessons that he teaches them is empathy, “You never really understand a person until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” 30. The children learn that they should not judge people until they can understand what they’re going through. By the end of the story Scout feels
He teaches Scout to look in Ms. Caroline’s point of view to better understand why she acted that way. Atticus enlightens us with the fact that we cannot know really what others feel like until they put themselves in someone else’s “skin and walk around in it” (Lee 30). “Atticus doesn’t ever just listens to Jem’s side of it, he hears [Scout’s side of it] too” (Lee 133). This proves that he doesn’t just look at one person’s view. He looks at everyone’s, and tries to be just in every way possible, even if it is just a small brawl between Jem and Scout.
Emily Hylton Mrs. Roy Honors English Period 4 9 October 2011 Scout’s Honor A tomboy, a quick learner, and a militant attitude combined make up Scout Finch, a little girl growing up in Maycomb, Alabama. Her personality and yearning for adventure gets her nose stuck in places where it doesn’t belong. In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Scout and her brother Jem are trying to figure out the mystery of Boo Radley, the town spook. During this time, she gets caught in the confusing problems of prejudice with the case of Tom Robinson, an innocent black man. Scout, who has simple faith in the goodness of people, teaches us that we need to learn to accept that everyone has faults, but to always look for the virtues in them.
In To Kill a Mockingbird, Harper Lee tells the story of her childhood through the protagonist, Scout. Scout, like many other children growing up at the time, doesn’t really have a good sense of the racism that surrounds her. When Scout’s father Atticus is asked to defend a black man in court, it turns her life upside down. Over the course of the story, Scout begins to understand that racism exists.

If he did not, he would not taught ,explained and helped David to understand about Waknuk's rules and their views on people who are different from the image of God. He also would not cares about David and wants to protect him. The last example is “ It was a great satisfaction to learn and know more, it helped to ease one over a lot of puzzling matters, and I began to understand many of the things Uncle Axel talked about much better, nevertheless, it brought, too, the first taste of complications from which we would never again be free. ” (8, 82) This happened after David’s aunt die, he develops an intense desire to become normal. He was so scared that someone will find out about him.
Her maturity is proven by the end of the novel when the children lose interest in Boo Radley. Scout learns that “Most people are [real nice], when you finally see them.” and that she shouldn’t “try to understand a person until you consider things from his point of view… until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (281, 33). These quotes are important because, over the course of the novel, these are the main lessons she learns up until the trial and afterward. However, Scout is still incredibly confused and is still trying to understand everything. The verdict of the trial is the beginning of her transformation but she does not fully become mature until closer to the end when she fully understands the reasoning behind the outcome of Tom’s
This allowed her to become unlike the rest of the town. Atticus has given many teachings to his children but the most important one is outlined twice in the novel. Atticus summarizes that the essential component of attempting to understand a person is that “You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view. Until you climb into his skin and walk around in it” (39). This quote is outlined twice in the novel because Atticus understands people’s opinions by looking from their perspective.
Some are earlier than others and some must be later. In the short story, "The Most Powerful Question a Parent Can Ask..." by 'Neil Millar' shows the most respectful approach of parents to their children because when they talk to their children, they make them understand in a calm voice and not be all tensed which will just confuse the child. Also they make their children understand by not forcing them to do chores, but telling them how responsibility will grow on you later in life, and eventually you will have to learn it at some point of life. They explain to their kids much more in a depth concept which makes their kids want to learn so they will be well prepared for the future. "Parents are guides and leaders to their children, not a nanny."
To me this is absolutely true. Why should we spend our time fearing the inevitable? We are given only a few short years to experience the world, friendships, loves, and losses. Even the bad experiences teach us to appreciate the good ones. This doesn’t mean we should all go out and be terrible people just so we will appreciate our good experiences, but rather that we should learn from our mistakes.
