Christopher's father is the only person in Chris's life that understands his habits. Unfortunately he does not always understand Christopher. Chris is more than just his habits; he is an adolescent trying to understand the world in his own way. Chris's father tries his best but also gets very frustrated with his son's perceived inability to emotionally connect. In chapter 137 Christopher's father says he's sorry for hitting him and says he will take Christopher to Twycross Zoo to show that he really was sorry. At the cafe at lunch, Christopher's father apologizes again and tells Christopher how much he loves him.
