    I will have to say that I am quite disturbed by this story. My interpretation of Stavrogin is that he is a man that was raised with everything handed to him so he had no appreciation of anything.

    I really wasn’t sure where, when or how I was going to complete this assignment. Although there are a lot of people in Ann Arbor, there weren’t many children to watch. I did end up finding the perfect time and place to do it. On September 13, 2015, I had to go to my grandparent’s house in Dearborn, Michigan for a family dinner. My grandparents live right next to a park, so I felt as if this was the perfect opportunity to study some preschool age children. I went to the park with my teenage…

Someone who will wipe away your tears and not only tell you everything will be OK, but will guide you into a new stage of happiness. But most of all a…
