All the statistics in the world don't tell us what type of teenager Lydia's son is. There are exceptions to every pile of stas out there.without knowing anything about Lydia's and her sons personal lives how can we judge her decison as nuts? Some kids work their backsides off and do the right thing in their lives and for all we know that's why lydia said she wanted to give her son the car. Judging her mothering decisons as nuts based on insurence statistics, without knowing her and her son...I don't know. Just my opinion.
