Keller wants Annie to have more understanding and pity when dealing with Helen's tantrums.  He feels that because of Helen's handicaps it is more merciful, and less trouble, to just let her have her own way, and he does not look kindly on Annie's forceful insistence that Helen learn basic manners and obedience.
