I feel that Mom was a "slut" in college...drinkin', smokin' whatever, diddlin' with the boys. Apparently she feels that every female who goes to college will act accordingly and fall prey to those nasty predatory males. She's a danger to herself and others! RUN, KIDS, RUN !!! (I hope the show gets another season or two--just so we can see the younger children freed by relatives or Dad's new paramour.)
P.S. Now that the series has aired, is Dad ridiculed at work and out in the world? Or praised?
