Willie's deviant life started not on the day he was born, but since the beginning of his family's existence. Butterfield give extensive information on how the Boskets grew and the negative social influences that they faced throughout their history.

I blamed my father’s mistakes on the world and believed that the world’s influence made my father do drugs, prefer all of the other women to my mom, and spend more time in jail than he did in his own home. Being neglected by my father, seeing how his bad decisions not only hurt him but also his loved ones around him, and witnessing my mother struggle to raise my brother and me caused me to mature at an early age, and shaped my belief that I could not depend on anyone but myself in order to live a happy life. I was a game to my father; he wanted to see how long it would take for me to forgive him and allow him back into my world. He won on every occasion; he could vanish for years, but once I saw him I opened my loving heart and let him in. I could not wait for our family to be normal again.

It seems ridiculous to fear children, especially your own children, but as the kids had their own father thrown into jail, it makes sense for Mrs. Parsons to feel afraid and distanced from her children. As each person feels alone and alienated under big brother’s watchful eye, they have no choice but to build the only relationship and bond they can, with that of their oppressor. The knowledge that the thought police watches the citizen’s every move influences the masses towards a “norm” of a constant state of fear and discipline resulting in utmost loyalty to Big Brother. Also, because people have no idea when they’re being watched, they learn to behave as if always under scrutiny. This transforms people into their own forms of a panoptic gaze, policing their own thoughts and actions from the fear of possible surveillance.
