Holden had a tough time fitting in at his schools because he thought of almost everyone as phonies. "`It's full of phonies, and all you do is study so that you can learn enough to be smart enough to be able to buy a goddam Cadillac some day, and you have to keep making believe you give a damn if the football team loses, and all you do is talk about girls and liquor and sex all day, and everybody sticks together in these dirty little goddam cliques' (pg. 131)." He seems to have a history of expulsion and failure at various schools because of his lack of ability to cope with others. Ordinary problems of his had turned into major conflicts with other students.
Imagine, a little boy sitting at home alone, hungry and scared because he doesn’t know where his parents are. Millions of children live this scenario every day because they have parents who abuse alcohol. Alcohol abuse is an addiction that affects everyone in the drinker’s life. Many examples of this are shown in The Glass Castle, Jeanette Walls and her siblings are heavily impacted by their father’s drinking habit and are constantly forced to take care of themselves. Having a parent with a harmful history of alcohol abuse increases the risk of child maltreatment greatly, alcohol use disorder creates many problems especially when children are involved so government should step in and remove children from that environment.
He is a troubled teenager who has just moved towns to Los Angeles with his family. Jim has become the target of many of the bullies in his new town which make his life tougher than it has to be. Jim became close to two people he met at the police station the night he was arrested for being drunk in public. Plato was a boy younger than Jim who wanted nothing more than to have Jim as a friend considering his parents were never around, and Judy who ended up falling in love with Jim and separating herself from the bully group. Jim feels that his father is incapable of upholding and opposing his mother; which we find out for certain in the film when he asks his father, “What do you do when you have to be a man?” He has major issues with his parents, for he feels they are unable to support him as well as be caring of the person he yearns to be.
Ed walks in on his mom and new boyfriend and starts questioning him. You can tell in his tone of voice that he doesn’t want him to be around, as most teenagers would feel after a recent divorce. On top of the divorce is the pressure of starting at a new high school, which gives you this feeling of a big lump in your throat you just can’t get rid of. This begins the turbulence when Ed starts getting bullied just for being the “new guy”. In the trailer it shows bullies throwing things at him and hiding himself in a locker to escape from the embarrassment he is facing.
More than 78% of college and high school students pull all nighters at some point in their life in school. When pullin all nighters or not sleeping as long as students should people start to have sleep debt. Sleep debt is when people have exhausted themselves during the week and when the weekend comings you sleep as long as you can to try to make up for the loss of sleep you have missed during the week. Many students think this method will make them less tired in the long run, but it actually hurts them instead. As result of lack of sleep, people worldwide are suffering from diseases, lack of motivation and in extreme cases death because they are not getting the recommended amount of sleep.
She grows up in the tenements, probably the same ones her parents grew up in, and experiences a routine of drunken behavior, disrespect, violence, and poverty. Eventually, her father stops coming home drunk, accosted by her drunken mother, where they break furniture and attack each other until they pass out. However, Maggie’s brother replaces him. Both father and son obtain barely working class jobs and acquire no education to speak of, except what they learn by example. Not only did Maggie identify this destructive existence in the life of her family, she also sees it in the lives of her community.
Holden shows this by slacking off leading to his expulsion from school. “ They gave me frequent warning to start applying myself…but I didn’t do it. So I got the ax.” Holden proves this theme once more by vandalizing in a fit of rage over the death of his little brother Allie. “I was only thirteen…I broke all the windows in the garage.” Even when Holden does not express his negativity physically he expresses them mentally. “I’m always saying “Glad to’ve met you” to somebody I’m not at all glad I met.” “I felt more depressed much more depressed than sexy.” When a young man turns his back on sex there is definitely something wrong.
Brando was the youngest out of three children. Brando had two sisters, Jocelyn and Frances. His parents are Marlon Brando Sr. and Dorothy Brando also known as Dodie. His father was always away at work selling agriculture products in Illinois and Missouri while his mother was an amateur actor who got drunk every chance she had made his home life miserable. Even when little Brando’s father was home he would be mean and his kids were terrified of him.
He even got bolder about it and soon went as often as he liked" (p. 18). I believe that separated parents can really affect so badly a family; and like in many cases, this happened in Essie Mae's. I think George Lee, who was her eight year old uncle, was one of the most negative persons during her childhood. This boy, who was supposed to take care of Essie Mae and the other kids, was a total bad model for her and that's also why she hated him. Many times this kid did hit them for any reason and he never cared about them.
In chapter 15 we see racial prejudice taking place when the townspeople come to Finch's Landing to try and stop Tom Robinson acquiring a court hearing. When the children come out they make the townsfolk feel ashamed of themselves and make them realise what t... ... middle of paper ... ...d some believed he had actually killed people. While his father was confined to his home, Boo chose to stay indoors. Scout points this out to the reader when she says, "I think I know why Boo Radley's stayed shut up in the house all this timeâ€¦its because he wants to stay inside." When people start rumours like this it is another sign of humanity lashing out at what they don't understand.
