Socs vs. Greasers
As the oldest, Darry had the job of having to take care of his reckless brothers. Darry's rules and disciplinary policies helped shape Ponyboy. Being the "parent" of the house, Darry's actions influenced how Pony and his brother, Soda, acted in the real world. Despite his numerous attempts at straightening them out, Darry could never seem to keep his brothers out of trouble. Instead, it was what he did to discipline them that helped to show them right from wrong.
After Bob's murder, Ponyboy was scared because he wasn't sure how he and Johnny would hide from the fuzz. When Dally gave them the address to the abandoned church, Pony felt a sense of safety as he knew that nobody would find him there. Being in the church changed Pony because he spent much of his free time thinking about his family. All this thinking finally made Pony realize that he was truly loved by Darry and Soda and he needed to watch his actions so that they didn't get separated.
Growing up, Ponyboy's life was never easy. Between his parents' death, and, as he got older, understanding that money was tight, and life was rough, he was shaped as a Greaser. Since both of his brothers were Greasers, Pony grew to understand who he was and what it meant. The feud between the Socs and Greasers taught Ponyboy to be tougher and watch his actions and words because one wrong move and people's lives could be at risk as well as the Greaser reputation.
