In fact, he compliments him for all his help and admits he'd be lost without him. He goes on to explain that Parker is just acting out because he's angry. "So, why do you let him get away with it?" JJ inquires. "That's the question of the month isn't it?" Jack laughs, and then continues, "I thought that if he, uh, got all this anger out it would help him -- it would help him move on, but clearly that is not happening so I gotta come up with a better plan, which is why I have to know where he is?" JJ replies that Parker didn't tell him anything because Parker rarely converses with him anymore.
A little while later, Jack calls the school about Parker's attendance. While holding on the phone, Holden arrives. Jack explains that Parker didn't come home on the bus so he's checking to see if he went to school.
