Mr O'Brien loves his kids but struggles to balance his sense of paternal duty with the overwhelming love he has for his sons, as Jack and his brothers grow older they eventually loose their innocent childhood ways and develop a new streak of rebelliousness. Through self-reflection on his childhood situations, it helps Jack come to terms with everything that's happened in his life.
