In 2002 Peter Jackson directed the extended version of the movie The Fellowship of the Ring In this movie he portrayed Aragorn Gandalf and Frodos both parents and children at various times He showed how good parenting can act as a catalyst and allow the child to grow to his full potential He also showed that bad parenting can be a barrier to all those things The achievement of a childs full potential often depends on parenting Aragorn son of Arathorn acts as both a parent and a child He acts as a parent to both Frodo and Boromir We first see this when the fellowship is making its way to Moria Because they were on the mountain in the middle of a strong snowstorm the wind and ice cause Frodo to loose his balance At this point we see Aragorn grab Frodo and hold him in order to protect him just as a father would do for his son He also acts as a father to Frodo when Boromir gets a hold of the ring which fell off Frodos neck When Boromir gets the ring his expression changes and instantly Aragorn sees there is danger He knows that Boromir wants the ring for himself Just like a parent would Aragorn orders Boromir to give Frodo what belongs to him Boromir give the ring to Frodo This sounds like a parent protecting his child in a playground He completely trusts Frodo and knows he can do no harm just like a parent would trust their child At this point Aragorn draws his sword and is ready to fight in order to protect Frodo and retrieve what belongs to him He does not want the ring for himself he only wants it for Frodo This shows he is willing to do anything on Frodos behalf Even if it goes as far as killing a member of the fellowship He is willing to take that chance
