With an alcoholic single father like Frank Gallagher whose main goal in life is to cheat the system, the Gallagher children were in for a tough life. His eldest daughter, Fiona, steps up and raises her younger siblings in her father's stead, which forces her to drop out of high school and eventually get her GED. Lip, though smart, often makes irresponsible decisions like having unprotected sex or taking the SATs for his peers in exchange for money. Debbie is sweet, while Carl shows clear psychopathic tendencies, and Liam is black despite having two white parents. Then there's Ian, who's not technically Frank's son but is raised (poorly) by him regardless.
