Of course, you could reduce what I said just now into a soundbite about how she's a stereotype failed parent from an Afterschool Special about the Plight of The Lower Orders. She thus joins Jeremy Jones's mother in being a fantasy projection of someone who likes to look down on those who are of lower social status than she is. Mrs Jones's Royal Road to Failure seems to stem from not being physically there and thus not being able to prevent the boy from following the innate tendency all children have towards thuggery.
Not, of course, that Lynn would do something crazy like admit to being filled with snobbery despite her Lynnsights dripping with a sort of contempt for those who have less. She'd as soon admit that she still yearns for that crush back from third grade.
