  1. I liked how you linked the two Halloween characters together but more than that, I liked the family dynamic of a child seeking support to be his best and the parent not really holding up their end of the deal. Parents do so much, positive or negative, to shape their child’s self-esteem. You captured that very, very well. As a teacher who deals with kids who never get positive reinforcement from their parents, I appreciate what you did a lot! You have incorporated a serious message into a silly cartoon. Thanks.
