Atticus tries to teach his children to stand up for what is right throughout the novel.

Misunderstood - 555 words
The definition of a good father is as individual as the individuals involved themselves. A good father is able to support his children's strengths, along with being able to help them overcome their weaknesses. He is able to do this without appearing to be a know-it-all. The ability to show by example how to live life, while not being afraid to make mistakes and not to be perfect all the time are also very important characteristic. Atticus was by that definition a very good father. Whenever Scout was mislead by anything, like the legend of Boo Radley or about how grown ups are, or why certain people feel prejudiced about certain people, Atticus was always right there to guide her.
