Eugene Percy final

 

 

“You’re pretty smug, Lord Ares, for a guy who runs from Cupid statues.” Percy had offended Lord Ares by saying he is a coward because he said that he runs from statues. Even though, Lord Ares just doesn’t want to get caught by Lord Hephaestus. For Percy to make better choices for himself and his community is that they should treat each other with respect and be helpful to each other.

 

Percy and his family should be respectful to each other and not bully others. She also tried to force Percy to drink out of the toilet. But Percy also reacted back using his powers to make the toilet water Clarisse wanted to force Percy to drink on Clarisse. This is very not respectful to each other in the camp. Percy shouldn’t have reacted back which will cause him to have enemies not friend. In the article Why Personal Relationships Are Important it say that having more friends can help you live longer. “A review of 148 studies found that people with strong social relationships are 50% less likely to die prematurely.” Say the article Why personal relationship are important. When Percy reacted make even more mean, he not only loses friends but, created enemies. This is not what the article say is good but is bad for Percy.

 

Percy and his family should be loyal to each other. Percy ditch Grover when he wanted to go to the bathroom, even when Grover made him promise to wait. When Percy did this, he might lose his only friend to help him deal with the stress he has of being kicked out of school and the Miss Dodds incident. “The support offered by a caring friend can provide a buffer against the effects of stress.” Say the article Why Personal Relationships Are Important. The reason is that Percy got kicked out of the school and didn’t know what he school he would attend. He would also be stressful having a monster teacher attack him. Percy would need friend to help him.

 

While Percy Jackson may be a son of Poseidon, he still has a lot of social issues that a lot of students his age is dealing with. To make everyone in Percy’s life to get along with each other, Percy and his family should be loyal and respectful to each other to stop having fights with his community. This apply to student in schools to have more friends.

CER

Percy should be honest to others so people can help him  get along with others. From the book “Whenever he got upset, Grover’s bladder acted up, so I wasn’t surprised when, as soon as we got off the bus, he made me promise to wait for him, then made a beeline for the restroom. Instead of waiting, I got my suitcase, slipped outside, and caught the first taxi uptown.” Excerpt From: Rick Riordan. “Lightning Thief, The (Percy Jackson and the Olympians, Book 1).” Apple Books.

If Percy have more friends he could be more happy and stop being lonely. To make friend Percy has to be honest to his friends so they can get along ,but Percy ditched grover when he promised to wait for him. This is so mean because he promised plus he also made grover to look for him for a long time and got very upset. Making
