Mental Illness

"A person's thinking, feeling or mood may affect and disrupt his ability to relate to others and function in daily life." This quote connects to Rex because he is incapable to be a have a stable relationship with his family because of his behavior and mental stability. He doesn't control himself and his family doesn't apprecciate he's lack of effort to be a good father.

Civil Disobedience

"People who engage in civil disobedience are willing to accept the legal consequences of their actions" This quote also relates to Rex because he has no regard for authority. He puts his children in danger for his benifit. He never thinks about his actions and doesnt care if the law stops him or not. He will continue whatever the cost may be.

Alcohol Alert

"Living with an alcoholic is a family affair. Because it subjects all members of a household to constant stress and fears of various kinds, it has often been referred to as a “family illness.” To one degree or another, all members of the family are affected." All the family members in the walls family were affected by Rex's actions. Everyone suffered and it made their family break apart to the were there can be no repare. I dont think anyone would ever admit that when he died there was a sense of release.

Parental Rights

"In the parent-child relationship, parents have some basic rights and respondsibilities. Both parents automatically have the right to make decisions about the child's education, religion, health care, and other important concerns. However, a court can Take these rights away from a parent if he or she violates the law, or in the father's case, never claims paternity. A parent can also voluntarily terminate his or her rights. Termination of parental rights ends the legal parent-child relationship." From the begin of their lives they had it rough but as time went on it only got worse. And it wasnt just a rough patch that they went through . Their whole lives were a tramatic thing.
