At the beginning of the novel, Pony thinks that Darry is being too strict. Darry gives Pony a curfew and does not like Pony walking alone at night. Pony, like many teenagers, wants more freedom. Pony is having trouble adjusting to Darry as a parent-figure. Darry is just worried about Pony. He has to do a good job of parenting or Social Services will split the family up. Pony getting jumped by Socks in chapter one validates Darry's concerns.
