POLONIUS, THE GOOD FATHER
I agree with the statement that Polonius, adviser in the court of King Claudius of Denmark, is a good father who desires what is best for his children. Although he may be a fussy and overcautious old man, Polonius constantly gives good advice and his best wishes to both his children, Laertes and Ophelia.
Before Laertes is about to go to France, Polonius talks to him and tells him all of

he would not likely settle for Ophelia.
Therefore, it is proved here that Polonius is a good father and he wants what is best for both of his children. For Laertes, Polonius wants him to be successful and mainly to just stay out of trouble when he leaves for France. For Ophelia, he wants her to be happy and not get hurt by Hamlet. He also wants to protect her, like most good fathers would.
