Human emotions incite complex reactions that are often difficult to control. Even feelings that seem conventional or puerile have the ability to transform an ordinary situation into a treacherous one. In The Scarlet Ibis by James Hurst, Brother struggles with humiliation towards his younger, crippled brother, Doodle. After teaching Doodle to walk, his pride impels him to help Doodle acquire other skills he needs to function in society. However, when his pride becomes blinding, Brother forces Doodle beyond his limits and is forced to accept the consequences.
He behaved kindly for selfish and prideful reasons; he behaved unkindly when he couldn’t control his emotions. This buildup of emotions eventually caused Doodle’s death at the end of the story. The narrator recognizes his guiltiness when running away from his brother, knowing that Doodle’s heart cannot bear the strain. However, at the time, he did so anyways – he couldn’t understand the consequences of his impetuous actions, and ultimately, kills Doodle. Throughout the Scarlet Ibis, the cruel interactions between the narrator and Doodle occur in the heat of the moment, a characteristic crack of pride and cruelty in a child, where Brother feels guilty for doing so, but cannot comprehend what could happen as a result of his actions.

They talk for a while and then Rahim Khan brings up how Hassan lives. In shock, Amir says Hassans’s name out loud for the first time in years. Amir thinks to himself as the regrets and memories that come with his name come flooding back, “Those thorny old barbs of guilt bore into me once more, as if speaking his name had broken a spell, set them free to torment me anew” (202). The guilt Amir feels from not helping Hassan when he gets raped, the lying so he would leave, thinking that would make his feeling better, still haunts him and still exists as an enormous part of Amir’s life. No matter how Amir tries to get over with Hassan, Amir always thinks about his best friend.

I could see small baby fish trying to get away from their parents, larger fish sleeping, and a reef system bustling with life. This is why I scuba dive, I reminded myself, to see amazing underwater worlds and their abundance of life. I have experienced those kinds of dives many times in the warm tropical waters. So when the suggestion was made to go diving in a local quarry, I immediately questioned why. I knew that a quarry is an area that was once used for mining stone, that has filled up with water from a natural spring once the mining activity was abandoned, I just did not understand why anyone would want to dive in one.
One of the ways in which parents play a critical role in their children?s social development is by encouraging their interactions with other youth (Updegraff, 2001). If children are able to work in group settings, this will not only help the child get along with other students, but it will also lessen the amount of disruptions in class thereby making it easier for the teacher to teach (Barbour, 1997). Parents need to stress the importance of little things your child can do to smooth the teacher?s day and help himself learn, such as listening when classmates answer questions, writing his name on assignments, and keeping his desk and work area tidy (Spencer, 2001). Parents can help your children avoid interrupting. Teachers love enthusiasm but yelling out too often will cause unneeded disruptions.
