Often times though, he would blame his lack of involvement on his low self-esteem. He periodically would have some involvement such as times when my grandma would provide him money to take me for activities so he could get to know the girl I was becoming. However, I never received the same involvement from him, any time I began to self-disclose I would hit a brick wall. This would often resulting in me crying to someone, typically my mother or grandmother, about how upset it made me and further drove a wedge in our relationship because I never would talk to my dad about my frustrations with our relationship but rather other people. Because of the lack of involvement on his end it was very difficult to reach the intimacy stage, however with a little probing from my grandparents and my mother we slowly reached it around the time I was six or seven.
159) Studs, parents had a more challenging youth. The result was that Lonigan really took much of his life for granted and his parents really were largely absent in his life.

For example, I had one aunt who was very cautious of her child and I understand you need to be cautious when he is an infant but as he grew older he would be treated like a baby. He was not allowed to eat by himself, even though he had the capability to pick a spoon and fork. His exploration was limited to only his home. It was not until I had the opportunity to babysit him and I taught him how to eat using spoon t an early age and read to him occasionally. His father also did not like the way the mother treating him as a baby but he couldn’t do much because he would work all day.
Worst of all, his step-father harassed him since he was little and he was incapable of expressing himself about the harassment to his mother.

Also another reason why Edison is my favorite scientist is because he started with nothing. He was pulled out of school by his mother because the teacher said he couldn’t focus and wasn’t very smart and couldn’t learn so his mom decided to homeschool him. Edison loved to read after his mother taught him how to read and after that he was always carrying a book in his pocket. Also Edison started to have hearing problems at a young age which seems like would of held him back some but it never did. Edison was kind of cheated when his teacher told him that he was not smart and couldn’t learn.
Because Faulkner’s behavior was unpredictable, often indicating that he was entirely self-absorbed in his own ideas and work, others found him to be distant. Those closest to Faulkner—his daughter, Jill, Phil Stone, and even Joan Williams—do not offer a portrayal of him that objects to his being erratic and distant. Probably the most poignant moment with Jill Summers is when she tells the story of asking her father not to drink before her birthday. His response was to remind her that Shakespeare’s daughter was never remembered by anyone. Although Summers relates the other facts of her father’s short-comings with little display of emotion, her face appeared pained after this story.
