I really don't think we can say what is or is not "normal" for people to see their family. What I like about all the people involved is that they are all trying to work it out and respect the other person's point of view. Bethenny and Jason come from very different backgrounds and I think that one of the challenges they are dealing with now is that Bethenny's expectation of moving toward a closer relationship with Jason's parents in small doses is different than Jason's expectation. I also think that while we see and hear of how difficult and cold Bethenny's upbringing was, Jason's family still hasn't completely dealt with the trauma of his brother's death. It comes up very often in the personal interviews. Jason will never be able to "make up" for his brother's death. I don't know how much of this is Jason taking on that role, versus how much his parents use that language, but I think that that is a family issue that Jason needs to work on resolving.
