"Grass is always greener" and all that. One form of Parental abuse doesn't make another less bad. Besides we are talking about Naomi, Helen is irrelevant here.brasca wrote:

It's not a competition, you can't make light of another's suffering.
And it wasn't a joke. Like I said, "You're the son/daughter i've always wanted" has been used either to show a heartwarming moment between an adult who has no children of their to someone younger they bonded with or to show how someone is a terrible parent to the child they already have, no in between.
We have been shown plenty of evidence that Naomi's parents are neglectful, especially emotionally. Which is probably why she uses Sci-Fi films and the whole alien thing as an escape.
And what makes you think Naomi was raised by the TV? She doesn't seem like a couch potato. If you are referring to her belief in aliens well there are a lot of people who believe and it's not like her conclusion is completely half-baked considering what she's witnessed.
Think about it for a second. It's not the fact that she believes in aliens, it's the fact that she thinks Teddy is a specific shapeshifting alien species from a B-Movie she watched, remember?
There's a world of difference from thinking aliens are real, to thinking Kryptonians are real. The latter would mean thinking a fictional alien species is real.
Being open to the possibility of extraterrestrial life doesn't mean believing the Klingons are real.
If Naomi's parents did actual parenting, this wouldn't be an issue.
Not picking on her? Tell her how she feels like a normal person? It's not that complicated.And you never answered my question as to how should Gabrielle go about courting Naomi.
And if she doesn't feel the same way, move on.
