Do you think Darry loves Ponyboy? Why do you think he treats Ponyboy the way he does? Use proof from the story.

Darry certainly loves Pony. He loves Pony more than Pony can realize at that time. Darry is worried he will lose Pony to Social Services if something goes wrong. Darry is merely trying to keep the family together. Darry has had to grow up quickly and take on a guardian role as well as the role of his (Pony's) brother.
