On a more general note this also relates to the whole idea of everybody being interlinked, or the socialism message. Even though the characters are worlds apart in class. Mr. Birling's actions have a profound effect on those of his own class; indeed, on his family and himself. "My child" and "your own grandchild" emphasise this. And you can link the humanity Eric shows to how the younger generation offers greater hope.
