Dill comes back because he didn't get the attention that he wanted from his father. He was ignored and not thought of. We learn that they don't care about him. His father is different because Atticus actual wants he best for his kids. Dills purpose is to support their family.
I can see where you're coming from since Dill does say that his parents don't care about him, but I feel like they just didn't understand Dill making him feel like they didn't care.
I like how you said that his purpose is to support his family. I never looked at it that way.
I agree, Dill was probably feeling very unwanted.
Dill comes back because he feels unwanted by his parents. We learn that his family gets Dill items and expects Dill to go off on his own and make his own fun. This is different from Atticus because even though he is gone for much of the day, he spends time with his children when he is home and truly connects with them. I feel like Dill's purpose in the novel is to show the reader that the way parents treat a child can really affect them in their lives.
I agree Atticus really wants to be apart of his kids lives, and Dills father is not interested. I didn't think of Dills purpose like that, but it really applies.
I never thought about Dill's purpose like that but it fits really well. Good job!
That is true. A parents dissapointment really can feel terrible.
That's a very good point, parents definitely have a big effect on their children. I agree that Dill's purpose could be to show the readers and even the characters, that the way kids are treated by their parents affects them long into adulthood.
His parents obviously don't know how to properly take care of him. Letting him do whatever is not the best choice.
I am Groot.
Dill comes back because his dad wasn't really interested in him. We learn that his family isn't like other families. They hug and kiss you goodnight but they don't spend much time together. Dill is kind of keep to himself but when he's around Scout he's different and expresses his feelings easier. I think that Dill's purpose is to show that there are many different kinds of people and families and not everything is perfect.
It definitely shows what family methods work better.
I really like how you point out that Dill's family like others. They really aren't like others and it's a shame.
Dill ends up coming because he didn't get the attention that he wanted to receive from his father. We learn that his family doesn't really care what happens to him and his father is different from Atticus because Atticus wants what's best for his kids and he wants them to succeed in life. I think Dill's purpose is to support the family.
I like how you said that Atticus wants what's best for his kids I didn't think about it that way.
Dill helps pass the time and makes a good friend. He supports them.
I like your points about Atticus. He does want the best for his kids, but yet he lets them have freedom as well
Dill came back because his father didn't give him any attention. He felt like he didn't get cared for enough and felt ignored. I feel like Atticus is different from Dill's father in the way that Atticus is more of a loving character. Dill's role in this novel is to be support for Jean and her family.
Atticus is very loving and understanding. He wants them to make their own decisions.
Dill didn't get what he wanted from his dad. He wanted to be closer and get more attention. They don't really care for him. Atticus always puts the kids first, opposite of Dill's father. Dill is the kind of person that treats others the way he wants to be treated. He always seems to be nice and attentive to Scout. Dill's purpose in the book is to show the theme of doing unto others what you want done to you.
It's very true that Atticus puts his kids first, and that is what makes him a great father figure.
I agree that that is one of the purposes Dill possesses in the novel.
Dill knew his father didn't care about him enough to want him to stay. His family doesn't think about what's best for him. Atticus wisely raises his kids and loves them. Dill helps scout and Jem remember how lucky they are to have Atticus.
Jen and Scout really are lucky to have Atticus as a father and Dill makes them realize how lucky they really are.
Dill is independent and wants people to care about him.
Dill comes back because he feels as if his parents do not love him they expect him to make his own fun with inorganic fun but even though Atticus is gone all day when he comes home he still plays with jem and scout even though how tired he is. Sills propose in the novel is to show how children can change an adults life.
Dill returns because his parents dont want him anymore. We learn that dills parents expect him to raise himself and live on his own, they don't really care about dill. Atticus is different because he loves his children and wants the best for them. Atticus does expect a lot from scout and jem but he doesn't expect them to raise themselves. Dill's character is very open minded and sees things differently. He also likes to tell tall tales to be excepted. Dill's purpose is to be an equalizer between jem and scout.
I agree that he is supposed to be an equalizer. He does a very good job of bringing them together even though sometimes they don't get along.
I love how you said that Atticus expects much from his kids, but yet he doesn't expect them to raise themselves. That's very true.
Dill ran away from home because his parents "don't care to have him around". We learned that his family buys him whatever he wants and takes care of him very well but they also expect him to go okay with his toys and stay out of their way. Dill's father doesn't take as much of a personal interest in his sons life, unlike Atticus who talks to them much more often. Dill is not quite a main character, as the story isn't about him or told by him, but he is a very important character to the storyline. Dill's purpose in the novel is to bring a different way of seeing things to the main characters and his experiences bring some diversity to their lives.
I agree with you that his role in the book is to bring diversity into their life
Dill left because his family never payed attention to him or wanted to be around him. We learn that his family doesn't think that they need to be with him just give home stuff. His father doesn't want to be around him but Atticus even though he isn't around much tried to be with his kids as much as he can. I think dills purpose is to show Jem and Scout that being with your family or having a good family is something to be greatful for not regret.
Yeah, I think scout and jem are a lot more grateful to have family especially after dill ran away from his family.
I agree with you that the Dills role in the novel is to show Jem and Scout that they should spent time with family.
Dill comes back because of the attention that he doesn't get. His parents make him feel unwanted. It's like they don't care of what he does and what choices he makes. Atticus lets the kids do what they want most if the time, but he still keeps an eye on them and makes sure they are safe and respectful. I think Dill is there to show that he can make it, but he needs attention from his friends.
Yeah I like Atticus's parenting, he's not too protective but also not too distracted.
I like how you said that he needs his friends attention I think that is very true.
The reason that Dill came back is because he get that much attention from his father. We learn that his doesn't really care about what he does and he dad is different from Atticus because Atticus is a living and caring kind of guys compared to Dill's father. The role of Dill in the novel is to show that how children can be affected by what their parents do to them or act around them.
Write something about yourself. No need to be fancy, just an overview.
