Nothing in this world could be more precious than the love of a parent has for his/her children. Our parents are always with us no matter what happens.

Despite the misfortune Frank O’Connor faces in An Only Child, he has two particularly strong role models to keep him focused on his future. His mother and his teacher Daniel Corkery are the most influential people in his life and he describes both of them with extreme respect and admiration. His mother, his main parental figure because of his father’s unpredictability, is his role model at home and in life. Her ability to overcome her difficult childhood growing up as an orphan as well as how she continues to overcome the struggles they face as a family inspires the author in his own struggles. Daniel Corkery, one of O’Connor’s instructors at his school, acts as a guiding, supportive father figure in his life.

She provided everything I needed as a little kid and she also went out of her way to give me things I wanted aside from the things I needed.
