It is often said that actions speak louder than words An intellectual adult influence is essential for youth while growing up and learning what is wrong and right in society In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee it is seen many times that Atticus is the influence in Scouts life She learns more from Atticus than she can from school such as not to judge others until she sees the world through their eyes Atticus also explains that racism is a problem in their society and ironically Scout who is just a child can grasp these lessons while the adults fail to see the problems that arise from racism Also some might find it ironic that the place where learning is taught the school accepts racism when it should be teaching the very opposite Some of Scouts most important lessons are taught through the moral actions of Atticus which in turn gives Scout the chance to gain knowledge she could not get in school First one of Scouts important lessons taught from Atticus was learning not to judge others If you learn a simple trick Scout youll get along a lot better with all kinds of folks p 30 This shows Atticus giving advise to Scout and also doing it in a way that gives the reader a sense of understanding about how Atticus acts He does not just talk to his children on a parent-to-child relationship but on a more mature level By doing this Scout is given the opportunity to get a better understanding about issues that go on in Maycomb the city they live in Then Atticus also teaches Scout another lesson by giving her advise You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view p 30 Illustrated here is exactly how considerate Atticus is When he sees the children playing out a game portraying an outcast neighborhe immediately stops the game
