He raises his two sons, Biff and Happy, to be well-liked and Willy does not care about their grades. He believes they will be better prepared for the business world if they are well-liked, and does not think education matters as much as personality, appearance, and physical skill. Although he has set high standards for sons, his morals are being well-liked, he thinks he is the best salesman in his firm, and he claims to be extremely loyal to his family; despite this, he is none of these. Willy still struggles to find out why his son, Biff, has not made anything of himself yet. Instead of a stable job, Biff has been a farmhand across the country earning only $35 a week (Act I.
In most cases, it is the oldest son that is being favored while the younger son is ignored. Usually, the father does not realize that he is picking a favorite; he simply gets caught up in the successes of the oldest and does not try to leave out of it. Throughout the novel, Willy makes references on how wonderful Biff is and he never pays enough attention to Happy. Willy constantly shows favoritism and true love to one of his sons, while his other son is left behind. As Willy shows truly favoritism in Biff, he takes this advantage of that and his dad becomes his role model as compared to Biff, the younger son Happy was really never important to Willy, eventually creating a more negative relationship.
Atticus tries to be good father as much as he can to Jem and Scout. He never brags about his abilities, he is loving and caring towards his children and tells them the difference between right and wrong. I think Atticus a good father and that he does extremely well looking after his children, Jem and Scout. He seems, in the context of the 1930’s, Deep South, an extremely modern parent! Atticus is an example to Jem and Scout, he doesn’t physically punish them instead he punishes them in other ways for example sending Jem to read to Mrs.Dubose.
His feeling is that there is a lack of people skills within the newer generations of business students.

Why would he help Daisy have an affair if he was such an honorable gentleman? One reason he might’ve helped Gatsby and Daisy was because he knew Tom was an awful husband and person and Tom and Daisy’s marriage was unhealthy. He thought that Daisy deserved better and Gatsby could give her better than Tom. Another reason was because of the advice his father gave him. “Whenever you feel like criticizing anyone just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.” Nick is a pretty tolerant person and tries not to judge people.
Kane had nearly fooled himself that these materialistic posesions made him happy, but what we really find out is; all he wanted was a normal life. His house was cluttered with senseless ornaments that probably mean the least to him. Kane’s amazing lifestyles with everything so big and exuberant was in a way his cure to a lonely soul. He never could determine who were his friends and who weren’t, once he dies we find out: many weren’t. If Kane had been brought up with a childhood, with the love and fun most children experience, maybe he wouldn’t have been so cold and brutal.
Relationships are key to stories, the most interesting stories keep the reader guessing as to what is to happen further on in a relationship. In life relationships are key, that is why solitary confinement is the worst possible punishment to a human being. Every person has different views as to what a good relationship is, in this following essay I will try to put across my views. In the book “ To Kill A Mockingbird” the relationship between the Finch children and their father comes under little conflict and therefore is an example of a consistent relationship whilst also being able to be classed as the very best a relationship can be. An example of the love that Scout shows to her father is, “I thought my father, who hated guns and had never been to any wars, was the bravest man who ever lived.” This is a pure example of the respect and pride that Scout and also Jem show to their father.
Atticus is well respected in the community, even though he goes against the social norm. “They're certainly entitled to think that, and they're entitled to full respect for their opinions," said Atticus, "but before I can live with other folks I've got to live with myself. The one thing that doesn't abide by majority rule is a person's conscience.” (Lee 11). Every time people see Scout and Jem, they treat them with the utmost respect. The Ewells on the other hand, follow the social norm, but are “poor white trash” of Maycomb.

He helps his friend Jim despite the internal struggle and he realizes that humans are worthy of respect regardless of the color of their skin. He goes against the grain of the outside world and thinks that society has their ideals a little messed up, it is kind of ironic coming from this often dirty, and homeless little boy, who had been “raised” by an alcoholic father, and racist fools. If only there were more people in the world such as Huckleberry Finn. (997 words)
