Pap treated his son brutally unlike Jim who is a genuine caregiver to Huck and watches over him. Moreover, Pap could not even be inconvenienced to anguish over Huck’s “death” after he is “murdered,” by someone, whom they believe to be Jim, “Finn went boo-hooing to Judge Thatcher to get money to hunt for the nigger all over… that evening he got drunk… he hain’t come back sence,…” (59); Huck’s father was not interested in the death of his son; he only went to Judge Thatcher in hopes of receiving money for alcohol.

“…..Thy brother is come; and thy father hath killed the fatted calf…….And he was angry.” So the older son wasn’t as forgiving as the dad was. He was mad that the son took all his money and spent it then came back to the house just to get a party thrown for him. We can learn from this guy and what we can learn is that we can be more forgiving to those who we think that they don’t deserve what they have like the other son got a party that he might not have deserved. We can learn that no matter what when we don’t forgive that we won’t be thankful for things like a son coming back home but when you do forgive thinks start to make life more happy and uplifting. If I was the older son I would have forgiven him and be happy for the good food at the party.
Birling in “An Inspector calls” is quite the opposite between the relationship that Lennie and George share. At the start of the play we know that Mr. Birling is a Capitalist “A man has to mind his own business and look after himself.” The impact on us the readers is that we know how arrogant and disgusting, capitalist were in the 1912. Eric never had the time to share his problems with Mr Birling as a father. “Because you 're not the kind of father a chap can go to- that’s why!” As you can see this isn’t a normal response toward his own father, due the over spoiling his own children and think the best for their children, Eric response was one that lead Mr. Birling think “what have I done wrong ?” I think this is commonly the problem for rich children and will happen not likely for the lower classes. The writer uses a hyphen, to show that he is against his father’s view towards Eva smith likewise as you can see it has a big impact on Eric, due to this Eric can’t really open his self towards his father.
