Elly versus free will....

It really doesn't surprise me that Elly is as alarmed by the prospect of her children using the word "No" as she is by their cursing or using racial slurs. This is because she hates the idea that they have free will. A normal person would of course resent some of the things that her child does during his or her growth into an autonomous adult and that's just fine; that's because the clash of wills is a normal, healthy thing. Sadly, Elly is not normal or healthy; her sick mind cannot tolerate the idea that her children will develop thoughts, feelings and hopes that conflict with her own. It may seem odd that she thinks that their growth towards independence is as unfair as their need for love and attention but it sadly fits with what we know about her: she's a hatefully immature and selfish person who wants the attention that being a young mother gets her but doesn't want to do anything boring like raise kids.
