On commodes and what kind of grandmother Lynn is.

As we all know, Lynn had no use for Mira's style of grandparenting despite it being much to be preferred to Elly's. While we saw a normal person taking the time to get to know her grandkids and allowing them to play and seek out stimulation and all of the other things that horrify Lynn, Lynn saw a domineering and ignorant monster who wanted to shackle Meredith and Robin to Deanna and deprive her of her identity and so on and so forth. Elly, on the other hand, was an ideal sitter because she never learned much about children and kept on doing the same stupid things with the grandkids she did with her own children.

It was hoped that exposure to an actual grandchild would change Lynn's tune but this seems to have been a vain hope. This is because she not only repeats old themes (children are natural enemies, parents need to escape from them, understanding their needs is surrender) but is happy to do so. This tells me that if the strip were to continue, Elly would be going out of her way to not see pressuring James Allen to use the potty is why he doesn't.
