Before coming to Hogwarts, Harry is completely isolated. Not only does he not have a loving family environment, but he does not have any friends to serve as a support system. After becoming a student at Hogwarts, however, Harry quickly creates a large group of friends but, more importantly, a close relationship with Ron and Hermione. For most of the students at Hogwarts, a strong group of friends helps with homesickness and difficult classes. Yet, in Harry's case, Rowling draws a more obvious parallel between friendship and difficult life challenges: the only way that Harry is able to reach the Mirror of Erised in the dungeons of Hogwarts is with Ron and Hermione's help.

He wasn’t made because two people loved each other; his mother and father were just forced to marry. “Neither bride nor groom had much say in deciding whom they would marry.

If they did, neither the man nor the woman would be allowed to marry again.” (page 17) Shin also didn’t really get along with his parents.
