While it is probably true that there are certain "basics" of raising children and fathering, each father is different. Both fathers in this novel think they are raising their sons in appropriate fashion, yet they are very different in their approach. Most people would agree that as long as the fathers are not abusive in some horrible way, the way Reb Saunders raises Danny is within his rights as a father.
