According to the father, he wants to see happiness and good balance in his son’s life. He wants to give him advice on everything whether it is pretty aspect of life or harsh aspect of life. He wants his child to live entirely in happiness but he is aware that life is not a bed of roses. The information in these stanzas is quite real and close to reality. I think the personal interpretation of emotions of father for a son is present in the poem.
The hope that his son would be a good person rather than an intelligent one with no soul pushed him to be harsh and cruel but overall, left his son with empathy, strength, a relationship with his father, and a connection with God and the world around him. In the final chapter, after Reb Saunders is finished talking to Reuven, he turns to his son. For the first time outside of services, Reb Saunders speaks to his son directly, without Reuven’s help. This is a big moment for their relationship and is a turning point where Danny sees that his father is making an effort at finally communicating with him. He also sees that his father finally knows that he is a good and empathetic person and is willing to trust him to go out in the world with inner strength and the knowledge of suffering.
There are good qualities and bad qualities. This situation makes Sheppard seem good because he is trying to be brave for his son by putting up a front that everything is alright. He wants his son to be the best person he can be, which is why he wants Norton to help others and is why he want Norton to give Rufus his breakfast because Sheppard knows Rufus barely ever actually gets to eat breakfast. This shows how much Sheppard truly does care for Norton and how he tries to be there for him and tries to be a good father, yet he really does not know how to be there for him. Over all in general helping other is also a good thing to do and can help someone gain good morals and values.
He would also admire his father’s courage and spirit if his father refused to give up his life easily. In the analysis of poetry one is always looking for the universal truth and how it relates to life. In the case of a child losing a parent, it strengthens the concept of the child’s own mortality. When your father’s generation gradually disappears it reminds you that your generation is the next in line.
The relationship develop as the father prepares his son to understand his mistakes by helping him recognize right from wrong. In his novel, The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini illustrates the importance of a father and son relationship which in turn affects the plot of the novel. Baba and Amir gains the ability to be a father as they demonstrate their differences of being a father to their son. Although Baba and Amir differ in facing their problems, which parallel, the enforcement of the empathetic fatherly figure they both suffer hardships for their sons’ benefit. To begin, The Kite Runner expresses the continuous redemption of Baba and Amir that they try to achieve.
In this letter, written by Lord Chesterfield to his traveling son, Lord Chesterfield shows his son the values he holds and the expectations he has for him. Lord Chesterfield clearly shows he values working hard, being superior to others, and doing what is right and noble. He informs his son these values are what are expected of him and anything less would be considered shameful. Lord Chesterfield organizes his letter by beginning with words that portray him as a friend and as show him to be comprehensive. He even relates his own youth with that of his son to show understanding.
While Amir’s early childhood was spent trying to get his father 's attention while also trying to find ways to make him proud of him. He tries his best to make a bond with his father while Sohrab’s bond is organic and natural. Sohrad has his father’s love and affection and does what he is told while Amir constantly strives without success for his father’s love.

Both Baba and Hassan are strong and brave men who stand up for what they believe is right in the world.
He eventually chooses the second path, saying he “then took the other, as just as fair” (6). This choice is significant later on in the poem, as this decision ends up shaping his life. Although he faces trials and questions his decision, in the end he realizes that by taking the road less traveled by, he has ultimately chosen the right path. In addition, Frost uses symbolism to illustrate that the easy decision is not always the right one to choose. Symbolism is crucial in this piece of work because Frost uses it to show his readers the difference between the two roads that the narrator needs to choose between.
In the novel, The Kite Runner, Khaled Hosseini proves that there is need of a fatherly figure when growing up. Having a father-son bond helps the child differentiate right from wrong. The relationship which demonstrates the need of a father figure is depicted by Baba and Amir, Hassan and Sohrab as well as Amir and Sohrab. A father is an important role in a child’s life, but more than that, a father expects his son to be the same or at least similar in one way or another to themselves. However, this was not the case for Baba or Amir.
Also, fathers and sons are sai... ... middle of paper ... ...ut stephen still does it, and continually does it daily.Which both helps, his maturity by building a sense of discipline and also prepares him for the future with the responsibility being learned. Just a little guidance can go so far as seen by Matsu who helped on the right track. Having a father-figure in your life will prepare you for life more than an absent father. It’s pretty evident in the case of Nwoye and Okonkwo. Okonkwo being there is guiding him to take a manly more masculine rule which is something he would’ve never inherited from Ikemefuna or his 3 other wives.
