Because teenagerdom is a mess, but some people handle it better than others.
The 10 Worst Mothers In Geekdom

Mom’s persona as the figurehead of MOMCORP and Mom’s Friendly Robot Company is a chubby, delicate, heart-shape-coiffed grandma type who has convinced all the robots in the world that she loves them very much and cares deeply about their well-being. But she really just wants to be the supreme ruler of all things and have all those robots do her bidding. In fact, she’s equipped them with a device that lets her control their every move while she mercilessly discards their loving gifts of cards and money and turns it all into “orphanage-grade” toilet paper and “hocus-pocus” cures for cancer. (Suckers.)
She has three sons, and she knows the father of one of them for certain. But she smacks them around and insults them on a fairly regular basis. Though they’re all pretty stupid and infatuated with her that they don’t seem to notice they’re being physically and emotionally abused. And ripped off — Mom owns 99.7 percent of MOMCORP while the other .3 percent is evenly distributed among the three of them. But like I said, they probably have no idea. Is it abuse if they don’t notice? If a tree falls in the woods and no one is there to hear it, does it make a sound? Exactly. (Mom said that’s how it works.)
