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. Nathan makes his dad give Gerald back the gnome he smashed just like a father would do if his son had damaged one of his friend’s toys. 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.

In fact, Red is only happy with Eric when he does exactly as he is told despite his late adolescence age. When Eric makes a decision despite his father's authority he is often told that Eric is ruining his own life. Red is quick to insult, put down or punish his son, and on more than one occasion gives Eric an unjust punishment or lengthy grounding.

Parents of a different parenting style would not have displayed this type of behavior.

That ain’t all, nuther.” This is ironic because it is evident that Pap did not raise Huck and he would also be a horrible role model for him if he did so. Because Pap did not benefit Huck’s upbringing in anyway, it is obvious that Twain portrays Pap as a narrow-minded character that should not be trusted.
