The largest problem that Telemachus faces in Odysseus's absence is trying to be the man of the house before he is seen to be a man. The suitors are taking advantage of his mother's hospitality, the servants at the home, the food, and the land. He wants to protect what is his family's and his. He cannot, however, easily stand up to the suitors who are all seen by society as men. They have proven themselves through wealth, bravery, and other means, whereas he is still seen as a child.
