Troy run away from his house to be on his own at a very young age because he never receive the love and respect he desires from his family, so he come around to repeat what his father had done because of the failure to see that the time had changed around him. Independence ties with Masculinity that Troy possess. Back in the 1950 a man who work for a whole family was normal and woman stays home to take care of the kids. Power dominance of the male figure is a big problem than segregation was at the time, but it was slowly changing. So, Troy fails to see the way from the future Troy is still living in the past because that is all he knows about growing a family.
(Farrell, 1932, p. 32)His parents insist he continue his education. William does not understand their perspective particularly his father who had an impoverished upbringing. “Often there had not been enough to eat in the house. Many’s a winter day he and his brother had to stay home from school because they had no shoes.” (Farrell, 1932, p. 15) Studs really was naïve to the sacrifices his parent have and still make. In the end, he relents and enrolls in high
Troy?s relationship with his father was one, which produced much tension, and had a strong influence on Troy?s relationships with his loved ones as an adult. He had very little respect for his father because his father did not, in Troy?s mind, make his family a priority. At an early age, Troy?s father beat him ?like there was no tomorrow? because he caught Troy getting ?cozy? with a girl (549; I,4).
Kurt was diagnosed with ADHD when he was a child and had to take medication for this symptom. Kurt’s family life wasn’t very happy.

In “My Papa’s Waltz,” by Theodore Roethke, we see a completely different situation. In this past memory, the poet’s child-self is filled with fear and dread and we can see that this situation empowers the poets past. Between the two poets, they both don't deserve the situation they are in. Instead, if they were to somehow ‘switch’ childhoods, these poems would have not been written, and each poet would be better off. “Those Winter Sundays,” by Robert Hayden, talks about his childhood and how his father went out of his way to please his boy and others, but never did he show any gratitude or appreciation.
But with everyone else he is quiet, and his slaved for work. The kind of life I think he had before he came to Wuthering Heights, was that his parents abused him, as he sometimes got into trouble and was cheeky to his parents, but then again I think he was the type who had no friends, a loner, just stayed in his room all the time. I don't think his parents cared about him, so they fostered him out. Also he complained a lot, moaned, just what normal kids do, but his parents couldn't stand it. Now that he has foster parents, I don't think he is the kid he used to be, his mean foster parents really bully him - because he seems to be doing lots of work where as the other children aren't, so really they are just picking on him.
Not only this, but his son was constantly in trouble with the law and did not respect the help his father tried to give to him. For example, when the son was in Jail, Gene came and paid the bailout of $1,500 only to have his son run out on him without listening to his father’s recommendations to get out of the situation he was in. It wasn’t until Gene had fired Smiley Bowman that he began to feel remorse for the way he blamed everything out on everyone else. After he fired him, he felt remorse and found a new job for him afterwards. It is not until this point that although he’s experiencing hardships in his life, he begins to accept it; as seen in the final scene of the movie when he is seen waiving to Patricia.
Children often think that their parents know nothing and it is not until something actually happens that proves the parents are right that the children realize how erroneous they had been. Baldwin's representation of his father while his father is alive is that of total detestation towards him and his ideas. Most of Baldwin's memories of his father are bad ones: "I could see him, sitting at the window, locked up in his terrors' hating and fearing every living soul including his children who had betrayed him"(54). The vivid memories Baldwin has of his father are ones of his father's down falls. Baldwin rarely remembers the good things about his father: "I had forgotten, in the rage of my growing up, how proud my father had been of me when I was little"(64).
He felt more rejected in life throughout primary school and high school where he didn’t have any friends or have a social life besides paying people to come to his apartment which influenced him to begin to drink heavily. According to the social control theory If Jeffrey had made friends in school or when he joined the army or any close relationships this would have prevented him from committing all those crimes. When his victim would try to leave he would strike them and prevent them from leaving as the loneliness and fear of rejection grew. At a young age Jeffrey satisfied his inner self from the loneliness by disfiguring dead animals which he later on carried on by disfiguring the corpse of his victims.
