I have a different perspective other than the rights of either one. The points of consideration include the danger to Jill of another pregnancy, whether they are capable of doing well by another child when it could be argued that they aren't doing that well by the two they have, over-populations and excess use of resources and other things.
You are not alone. I hate, loath and despise the mother and want the game to end with her walking the plank. And yeah, the kid is annoying too.
Because this has been discussed here before, my hatred of the ad is not because I think a mother can't play with her child or that a debilitating migraine hasn't kept a mother from spending time with her child. It's that everything about the mother is obnoxious and she looks and sounds like a complete lunatic.
You're right of course, but to me the bigger question is why she has never learned anything different than how she was raised. She was artificially isolated but at the same time, she has traveled, she has met people and she has seen some of how others live, but she has learned nothing and appears to aspire to nothing. Many of us live vastly different lives than how we were raised because we do learn and aspire. Is she that dull-witted or is she that frightened?
It's sad, but to me, more maddening. If they owned up to how bad their marriages are, they would have to do something. Of course, if I had to look into Derick's evil eyes every day, I'd have to open a vein.

It's a little like Stockholm Syndrome, isn't it?
It is always possible that something intense, disruptive, even traumatic could happen that could loosen the hold on the kids, but my expectations are very low. And it is also possible that some illumination could shine in their damaged minds - always a chance.
