Like Nathan, many kids had fathers who were absent or fleeting. When these fathers did stick around, they were not always the best influences around their sons because they did not know how to be fathers to kids they could have easily had with another women around. With Gaz and Nathan’s relationships, it is almost like the son becomes the father and the father the son as Nathan keeps reminding his dad that stealing is bad, breaking in and entering is wrong, and that causing Gerald to loose his job was rude.

Even as Gaz is walking up and down the streets, he and Dave rate the women they see on a scale of one to ten, and Nathan explains how that’s perverted and gross to do.
