Draw the character sketch of Jack

Question: Draw the character sketch of Jack.

Answer: Jack is the protagonist of the story ‘Should Wizard Hit Mommy?’. This story examines the issue of parenting, the adult tendency to suppress the curiosity of a child and the belief that the viewpoint of the adult represents the only valid one. Jack is conscious of his duties as a father and husband. He had been telling stories to his daughter Jo since she was two years old, before her Saturday and evening naps, but now two and a half years later he was fatigued and confused by her constant questioning, pointing out errors (Roger fish instead of skunk), asking for clarifications and suggesting alternatives. He has the typical parental attitude and opinion that parents know what is best for their children and stifles her objections and amendments shown by his defending, the skunk’s mother (and indirectly his own). Jack feels caught in an ugly middle position physically, emotionally and mentally. He did not like women to take anything for granted, to the extent that he extends the story, changing the ending, giving it the face that he wants to. This is despite the fact that he knows that he should be helping his pregnant wife paint the woodwork. Jack is someone who is not used to his authority being questioned and so is confused by Jo’s questioning. Though a loving parent he finds it hard to accept the fact that Jo now has a mind of her own. His insensitivity and impatience come across in his dealings with his daughter, and the fact that an adult’s viewpoint is different from a child’s perspective.
