Do you agree with Harold's parents decision of hiding from him the fact that his father was a boxer? Why/Why not?
Pointers have been provided for students' reference.
It is strongly recommended that students prepare the answer on their own.
(1) First tell what actually happened in the story, what the truth was and what was told to Harold.
(2) Now discuss why the parents and others felt it proper to secrete all about Mr. Bramble’s profession.
(3) Now give your perspective, do you think what the parents did was correct? Do keep in mind the reaction of Harold post the truth was revealed to him.
