The stigma against mental health in society prevents people from learning about how parents and school affect child development, which results in adolescents and adults with poor mental health unable to function normally in society. Holden’s mental disorders are likely a result from his bad childhood, his brothers death and no sort of therapist or counsler to talk to him about his emotions and how to deal with them;“I was only thirteen and they were going to have me psychoanalyzed and all, because I broke all the windows in the ... ... middle of paper ... ...chool and life. Holden is a teenager and this is an example of his characters immaturity and perspective, and shows his stubborn personality. Society placing too much pressure upon teenagers, family problems, and the school system, are the main reasons that Holden has a hypocritical attitude, and admires and fixates on innocence, which makes his character an ideal example of a teenager in American society with ignored issues, such as mental illnesses, and is important to recognize for the safety and well-being of teenagers, children, and students in American society. To ensure the well-being of teenagers and the future generations, they cannot be pressured as excessively as they are, because it does not guarantee that teenagers are leading mentally stable and enjoyable lives.
After Allie dies, Holden gives up on his academics. Holden does not apply himself to his academics, even after receiving warnings about his academic performance: They kicked me out. I wasn’t supposed to come back after Christmas vacation, on account that I was failing four subjects and not applying myself and all. They gave me frequent warning to start applying myself- especially around midterms, when my parents came up for a conference with old Thurmer- but I didn’t do it.

No one would play with me at recess and no one would ever come to my house. I began to get very depressed. My teachers were not aware of ADHD and were extremely critical of me and insensitive to my disability.

In the league disabled children play, and "normal" kids act as their "buddies" to help move the game along.
Although both his parents could sign, he was raised without learning how to because his doctors told his parents and grandparents that they were afraid signing would interfere with his speech and interfere with his learning and education because he would no longer try and use his speech and hearing skills. Mark talks about his struggles faced while attending different schools and just not being able to understand people because all he can do is read lips which was especially difficult when he wasn’t familiar with the movement and pattern of the person’s lips. He also talks about the schools he attended and how they affected him in different ways and how kindergarten at the Henry H. Houston School made him feel out of place because he wasn’t able to sing along or hear any of the music in class. Then, in third grade he switched schools and attended the now Plymouth Meeting Friends School and thought it was going well until another boy kicked a football at him and knocked him to the ground causing him to lose his hearing aid battery. Another school experience he didn’t enjoy was at Germantown Friends School where Mark states 95% of the time he had no clue what was going on and that when the teacher was done lecturing he would scramble around asking for the assignment and had to learn how to do it on his own.
