After two years, an Illinios appeals court threw out a lawsuit by grown siblings Steven and Kathryn Miner against their mother, Kimberly.  They wanted $50,000 in damages for “bad mothering”. They were raised in a $1.5 million mansion, but sued thier mom for such transgressions as not sending care packages to the son in college, failing to buy them toys they wanted, calling the daughter at midnight to tell her to come home from a homecoming party, and giving the son a birthday card he didn’t like and that didn’t include a check or cash.

- The appeals court also gave Steven and Kathryn a “Time Out” to think about what they’d done. 

- If I were the mother, I’d counter sue them for “bad childering”.

- I’d love to be a fly on a wall come this Thanksgiving!
