Quote maja:Quote rediculous: Phyllis doesn't have the mental capabilities to mother a teen age daughter, she has never progressed past that age herself, she is pushing 50, going on 18, she and Summer are pretty much at the same mental stage right now..
ITA! Phyllis is a golden example of stunted growth. She would rather be Summer's best friend then her mother.
Phyllis doesn't want Summer to be angry with her again like she was about Ronan . She hates that Summer would talk to Avery instead of her. Summer is 18 but she had a party in the penthouse without asking Phyllis and lied about going to the prom. She has praised Summer for admitting to being a bully and didn't see the need to get Nick involved . Phyllis is afraid to do anything that would upset her spoiled brat daughter.
