turbulent silence against him.”(p.4) He noticed that both the sheriff and his Uncle Andy had, “?thought he was cruel?and didn’t care about his brother.”(p.4) This gave a lot tension to Arnold for he didn’t understand why he was blamed for something that he did not do on purpose. Eventually, as the other family friends arrived at the house, things get worst for Arnold. Everyone was talking about Eugie, ignoring the present of Arnold. Arnold was a pretty bright boy, and had feelings too. What the others did not take in account was that he was traumatised from the whole accident, therefore did not know how to react. He did not need all the unnecessary comments that were made by everyone else. “Not a tear in his eye,” said by his Uncle Andy and “He didn’t give a hoot, is that how it goes?”(p.5) Added his Uncle Sullivan. These comments were not appropriate at all. They were making comments not knowing that the bright nine years old understood every word that was spoken. This was a very intense moment for Arnold. He had not received any comfort from his family at all. What they did not know was that Arnold was the one who suffered the most pain. There was no one there to comfort him. He needed someone to care for him and he had realised that the only person whom he really depended on was dead now. He was desperate and finally hoped he would get relief from his mother by showing her how sorry he was and hopefully in return she will give him her love and understanding. Instead, his mother refused to listen to him when he knocked on her door in the middle of the night. Arnold was left with sorrow and pain all to himself and no one to share it with. Just think, what do most people do when they are in frustration or grief, they turn to their family or friends for help. Arnold did not have either, so one can feel how Arnold must have felt. He had no one to talk to and this is what brought him to be so cold and calculated in his reaction to the world these past 12 years. Arnold has suffered a great amount of pain due to the incident, which also has changed the way he thinks and the way he looks at the world around him. At this stage I would like to suggest some therapy programs for Mr. Curwing. He has suffered many years of grief. I would like him to reacquaint with his family and friends since he does not spend a lot of time with them. They should be aware of Arnold’s feelings ensuring that they will slowly show him how much they care about him, giving him all the love and support that he should have received when he was a child. This is only a small part of his program. In the meantime we provide him with therapists with a view to helping him cultivate close relationships and being able to share his feelings and thoughts. He must also experience the social world around him. Maybe trying out different sport related activities or even some kind of social job may help. Doing sports can stimulate his blood circulation to keep him relaxed and doing team work and communication with others can also be very helpful because it can show him that he can get support and care from people on the outside also. These are just some suggestions I came up with and as progression applies, I will suggest more options.
