In the play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, the parents of the star-crossed
lovers support that their families are feuding. They encourage the hatred between
the families and at the same time, they exert enormous control over the title

Thank me no thankings, nor proud me no prouds,/ But fettle your fine
joints 'gainst Thursday next/ To go with Paris to Saint Peter's Church, /
or I will drag thee on a hurdle thither / Out, you greensickness
carrion! Out, you baggage! / You tallow-face (Shakespeare
III.v.153-159)
He refuses to listen to the pleas of his daughter and threatens her at the same time. These lines
spoken by Lord Capulet demonstrate the breakdown of the Capulet family because he no longer

Other characters like Romeo and Tybalt had no problem resorting to violence. This is due
to the lack of parental guidance given by the Montagues and the Capulets. As a result, they

violent when they are young. Guardians of children who observe kids being violent think that
they will change as they mature. This is not always the case. (Understanding Violent Behavior in
Children) Romeo and Tybalt’s parents turn a blind eye to their violent actions.
